I have been waiting for quite some time to make this post, very much looking forward to it actually. I woke up this morning after having yesterday's surgery, with my body matching my soul, heart and mind. I can't verify it in a mirror yet but, "my name is Tia Anne and I am a woman!". Yay!!!!!!!!

First time ever leaving the house presenting as female.  It was strangely uneventful.  lol, probably the last time i'll be doing that in a while.

You look great...good on you!!

There is a guy in my office that I used to work with but haven't really seen in awhile. He's walked by my desk since I've transitioned, so I thought he knew about me.
Well, yesterday, he was getting off the elevator as I was getting on and I smiled at him thinking he knew who I was. Well, I found out today that he was then asking around, "who's that pretty, new girl?"
Oh dear! He didn't know who I was when I smiled at him. He just thought that some new girl found him attractive!

Hi girls 🙋🏼  I am so happy today because I can definitely say my breast buds have started to develop.  They both feel to be about a 1/2" round ball.  I've never been so excited to have pain!

Yeah, Jessica!

About a week ago I was helping a friend move appliances and bumped my chest on the fridge. Eeyowtch! That made me check on things, and whoa, there's something going on in there. I'm not completely out yet, and my friend (who's trans herself) pointed out that I'd better be more careful what shirts I choose, saying, "Girl, you're starting to show!"

I got out the tape this morning and I'm up an inch! Just sitting here typing, they're making themselves known with a little aching.

So high five! (No chest bumps, please.)

Thanks Steph!  I'm hoping I'm right behind you by just several weeks.
This makes me feel like I really am ready to be female.  Taking each step before the next is all you can do.  Hopefully my path heads in the way Anne is on.
Hugs, Jessica 💁

Today I went to the electrologist and for the first time it did not hurt. However when I finished my face looked like a cheese pizza. Starting to calm down now three hours later.

Today I'm getting off work early at 5, early for me. And I was able to schedule a last minute electroligist appt for tonight.  I am one happy girl.
My Avatar is from faceapp.  I believe this can be achieved based on my starting point, and it's pretty.  It's a guide for the girl I feel I am inside.

11/6/17 - came out to sister, best day of my life
9/5/17 - formal diagnosis and stopping DIY in favor if prescribed HRT
6/18/17 - decided to stop fighting the trans beast, back on DIY.
Too many ups and downs, DIY, purges of self inbetween dates.
Age 10 - suppression and denial began
Age 8 - knew I was different

Dawn that's great you were able to have a pain-free (or relatively pain-free) electrology session today. 

After repeated electrology sessions I found the same area of skin starts to adapt and looks better, eventually to the point there is very little discoloration when you leave.  I know it's challenging right now - but is sooo worth it.

My car needed brakes and our other car ended up in the shop yesterday so I took the day off to deal with it. Turns out it would take four times the amount I had budgeted and through the weekend. I was completely at a loss, crying and depressed. I called the regional director to tell him I couldn't work for the foreseeable future. He told me not to worry and that he would call me back. An hour later he called to say he was going to loan me his personal car and that he would bring it by in a couple of hours and I would need to drive him home. After he picked me up as we were driving to his home the executive director called me. He said the company would loan me the money to be taken out of my paycheck at a very reasonable rate and no interest. He said I should authorize the work and get him the info he needs to pay the bill. That man makes me cry every time I speak to him and it's always happy tears! As I was leaving the regional director he told me there was no rush to get the car back to him. I work for the best people!

Being transgender is just a phase. It hardly ever starts before conception and always ends promptly at death.
