Hi Drexy,

Merry Xmas and have a great new years!  Hope you're recovering ok 
Wow - that does look a bit painful - just keep drinking those cocktails - I hear they mix really well with pain medication!

Take care,

Done the vow of silence and have been able to have hoarse conversations now for a couple of weeks. Recovering slowly and pretty happy with the result...Si where have you been and what have you been up too.

Heres a bit Liz 😙and thank you for the well wishes
Thailand was interesting nice to be in a society  where you are just normal i even got  ma'am ed  a few times .
In the end my experience  with Yanhee was a negative one , their follow up was poor  i had to have blood tests that would take 2 weeks to process,  so i would be back in aus by then.
 they did not contact me , i had to email them for the results and when i emailed back asking where was the diagnosis  the go between  informed me that was all he had been told to send (the hard data) add the fact that i had been told that they did co2 laser resurfacing. ...and then rocking up at the clinic to find they only did fraxel.....😑
Too many translation problems ....lost in translation
So after leaving the pollution  of Bangkok  i went to the balmy locale of Pattaya where i know a lady who has a bar there, needless to say they were surprised  but very cool about my change ....and a procession of various woman came in to touch my skin .and down there  gently seeing if anything stirred,  and one of the girls who had always been cordial to me ....got quite interested .....and our friendship  is much more than before.
What they did remark was how happy i was ...and always smiling and laughing   compared to  when i used to go there as a man never smiling etc just drinking .....lol men used to come in and ask if i was the bouncer
In fact one girl i was told was heartbroke as my nickname  had been "killer" needless to say her and i had been very good friends  in the past .....so,i understand.
As for the ladyboys that used to hit me up ....well i got left alone .... how interesting 😉
One of the customers really took a shine to me  a European  man 
As for the Aussies when  they arrived they were okay with me ..... only problem was the rounds kept going around and around lol really good men i admire  men who are confident  in themselves,
There were a lot of minor occurrences while in Thailand  nice affirming  moments  as such they eclipsed  the negative.
Hmmm Negative....Arab men .....beware !

Well, lots going on! I'm glad to read you had a good time in Pattaya with friends.  I can see why things would be different (ha) but as they were being cordial says you're accepted.   Some guys are definitely bold!  Be aware!!

@Drexy/Drex

Hey Drexy

So great to hear form you. Sorry to hear Yanhee was not what it was supposed to be. I remember you saying you were off to get some laser work done. Sounds like you have been having a great time along with some pretty affirming interactions.

So are you laser aspirations complete? I have heard of Fraxel laser for skin resurfacing but know very little about the co2 and what the expected results are. Would be interested to hear.

So you are on the hunt for your next lot of work now? you planning on going back to the bush?

I will remember to stay away from arab men LOL

Thanks for the great update I will be updating both my threads today after my appointment at 1:15

Take care

Liz

Drexy! Finally!! lol  - I've been hoping you were alright what with all you have been going through and getting done etc. Sorry to hear they mucked you around but It makes me happy to hear they noticed how happy you were around them  -thats a really positive telling sign! Very interesting change in dynamic around people you've been around before and now - but I love that you have the confidence to keep moving forward and just del with things as they happen big and small - you are an inspiration to me. I know I don't know you terribly well but there is something about you that gives me courage for my own personal journey.
HRT is treating me like.....a WWF wrestling match.....big highs, big lows, some great moments with my wife, and some shocking arguments worthy of Hollywood....I'm still staying the course however and I have my first post hrt meeting with specialist GP in 2 days to check my hormone levels etc etc.  It has definitely affected my moods and stuff and there have been some small but noticeable physical changes also... ;-)  some other things have happened and I will put them in a PM once I get the time - something I'm short on atm because I started a new job 2 weeks ago and have been flatout and tired as hell at the end of the day. But I'll write soon!

Take care,

Sonja XO.

Hi Sonja thanks for your  postive  words much appreciated 😊
Yes i know the what you mean about the ups and downs  its like wow isn't  it lol  hahaha  😉 all part of the ride
Co2 is much goes much deeper tha fraxel and the down time peeling  etc is much longer
Because of my tendency  to drag my heels ...i missed the window for general  anesthesia  so just numbing creme ....i,m sure theirs was paste its use by date ...cause my god did it hurt ....Doc was impressed siad i was tough ....😑
But due to a blood condition i have .....which we thought would not affect me ... but it did......my skin started bleeding  the doc freaked out
and so had to cauterise all the bleedouts  which consisted of him jabing in a local anesthesia  needle then applying  a cauteriser... more pain
Omg ....i hope i cleaned some karma up with that lot  sheesh
I know what you  ean about starting a new job etc i start another project tomorrow. ....this will be interesting ....its a really big project....thousands of people .... lol it always feels llike show time ....i got my nails done in a nice glossy black in preparation.
I,m so tired my feet more so .... i was inspired  by Lizk to start exercising  again .... early days but i,m doing 8kms a day .... i thought if Liz can do it with a painful hip and a walking stick .... then i should take  notice ....so thats what i did  doing 8kms 70mins  1000 calories per session and i dont leave the treadmill  till its done ... omg my feet are so sore though...  when i first started hrt my doc said dont get fat ....thats all..... guess what happened. ....now the long road back up .
Yes Liz back to the bush .....😒😌😆☺
Oops i forgot  to mention it all truned out well on that job ....people were really good to me .... i didnt have to do the brass band thing ....smart people .... there were some hilarious  faux pax ..... as in we were talking  about one of next projects that had  asbestos  and i mentioned what a pain it would  e wearing a mask and mate  laughed and said "you'll have to shave your beard off ".....lol
 BTW  this is gold ..... you only have to count carbs not calories to lose weight .... no more than 30 grams carbs per day .....choose them carefully  😆 down 2 kg already got that gem  from a bloke who lost 20kg in 3 mths at work no exercise ...sitting in a machine  all day. ...
...it does work

Finally got demobilised from the job😁 whew that was a hard number conditions wise
in the end everything and everyone was cool concerning me and i made new friends
So now I've started a new project with like perhaps 2000 workers... I've not had any dramas yet. A few odd. looks from guys.... lots of smiles from women and there are lots of people I've worked with on other jobs, great facilities it appears.
only had one guy screwing his face at me a couple of times... if he does it again I'll warn him.
As for everyone knowing my status at the last camp.... Well today sitting in the crib hut waiting to be assigned a job, the girl sitting across from me
after a bit of banter remarked on my looks and then she leaned across and whispered, "are you transgender?" so i said yes i am.... i said why do you ask... and she said well someone told me you were
and i asked who told you? a boy or a girl you dont have to mention any names
whereupon she told me it was a woman who has friends in the old camp / job i was at and someone from there had told her....so i told just 3 women back there lol 
Now the word will spread through this camp😁
My new friend filled me in on how she had been watching guys check me out.... I'm oblivious to that but she is adamant its happening.. i was adamant to her that it was my blue eyes and silver teeth.... but she insists that its true  she also reckons I'm too hard on myself....
Lost 4kg (thanks for inspiring me Lizk) that works out to a kg per week

Hi Drexy

Well well well look at you the star of the show...almost ;D

Glad things are working out for you in the new job...it is hardly surprising the gossip mill is running..its amazing you haven't broken it yet. I know how you like to stir things along. Congrats on the new job I hope that goes really well for you.

So lots of guys checking you out....Hmmmm from what I remember you are not totally adversed to being admired by the guys.

Thanks for the update....how goes the list or surgeries...you can't have too many more to go??

Take care

Liz
