This weekend has been fantastic, primarily because of my awesome husband, but also because I think something in me has settled. Transition, the constant medical appointments, etc has all sort of settled into some acceptance of my life. Medical is something I just have to deal with, the weekly appointments, the travel to Phoenix in … Continue reading A wonderful weekend with my husband
At the start of the new year, there is always a 10 year (and sometimes 20 years) challenge where people post photos from different time periods. I am starting to really like myself so I thought I would do both of those. In addition, I am going to post my first "almost sexy" pic as … Continue reading 10 and 20-year challenge
It has been a long time since I was out and about in public as often as this last week. I forgot about the dozen microaggressions in each store, and the contrasting supporting smiles I get. This has been the most I have been in public with the new boobs, and the new fat transfer, … Continue reading Harassed twice in 15 hours…
I have to admit that I never understood why anyone would put botox or lip filler in before I transitioned. Not that I ever had a problem with it. I always felt a person should do what they want with their body as long as it made them happy, but I never understood it. Well … Continue reading Overcoming pre-transition ideas.
I absolutely love the results from my surgeries on my face via FFS. The bone work laid out by Dr. Ley, and the skin/muscle/fat work done by Dr. Mangubat have left me for the first time in 50 years finding I love how I look, and not looking at myself so hatefully. While I have … Continue reading Traditional women’s concerns
This is it, I turned 50 today and I am not sure what to really talk or consider about it. The first photo of me in my 50s. I can tell you I don't feel bad, I feel really good. I am in a great marriage of 29 years this year. I am happily working … Continue reading 50
I look back and I notice that the last post I did was the beginning of May, here it is the middle of June and now I am just getting around to posting. I suspect that is because this was a lot harder recovery from surgery the normal. I think it resulted in me having … Continue reading Hard recovery is mostly over.
Project Throwback: April 14, 2013 It is uncommon for the hubby to get pictures of me. Especially pictures I am not aware of. Here is one of those, plus a second from same day (but I was aware of that). That butt is "magically delicious" or at least that is what the PJs are saying. … Continue reading PT: Hubby gets revenge
Last night I had a weird, anxious and intense dream that lasted all night. Probably part of it is anxiety, finally system clear of narcs and any other aid to help sleep or maintain my mood. Wolsey and I had moved to what looked like Seattle, a large city in a rainy area. We met … Continue reading Strange Meetings (dream)
buckle in.... this is a longer post. Last week I received two very obvious acts of aggression towards being transgender. One was a macro aggression, where someone attacked me verbally (and was going towards physical) and the next day the most obvious type of micro aggression. The sad fact is, the micro aggressions bother me … Continue reading Macro and Micro in Action
