Beautiful necklace Faith.  The name is a nice touch. That's extremely thoughtful.

Ah! I thought it might have been the necklace, but I couldn’t see it too well in the original picture. We all agree that Lori is the best!

Indeed Faith! A lovely necklace from Lori. That was so sweet of her. I think you both rock girl. I'm glad your feeling better. You certainly look great in your pictures, even with your hair pulled back. I know! Right! Eating hair is the worst.

Big hugs!

At least hers tastes silvery. Mine tastes like dishwater (blonde).

feeling better is a moment by moment condition. Right now I could break down and cry. Only the fact that there are five guys in the room keeps me from falling apart. No way they get to see that.

I think it started when, as I told Sarah earlier, I took a piece of equipment to some contractors and as I was walking away I distinctly heard, "Thank you sir".  Now, I am not the prettiest person out there, yet, there I was with the girls obvious under my top and a long skirt, open toed shoes with bright red nails .. and I'm a sir.   >:(  :icon_cry:

Faith, It is really a shame to see all the damage that testosterone poisoning does to all those guys, it makes them dumb and crazy. Now I have seen you and all that Deb and I saw was a beautiful woman. Those guys, must have been dumber than an stump.

Love you girl!,

aww, thank you Tia, however, I don't think it counts when another woman says it ... we're biased. Guys are physical, they notice things.

Oh mine too Steph but with a bit more of a brown dishwater taste, if that's possible.

Dear Faith! As Tia put it, "Those guys have testosterone poisoning coupled with brain damage". Ok, I added that last part, but true non the less.

Guys may be physical and notice things but the things that guys notice, you have showing proudly. You got curves and bumps and that is about all that guys notice except occasionally a wedding ring. This puts them back into the dumber than a stump coupled with brain damage (thank you for the truthful addition Donica) category. AND, I believe that it counts more than ever when another woman says it! But hey, that's just me, another woman that loves you saying it.

I’m sorry this happened, Faith.  I wish I knew what triggered this response in some men.  It generally just falls out of their word hole, without intent to harm.  Impact is not the same as intent, of course.  After 3 years of HRT, GCS, and FFS, I still get this occasionally, even when my presentation is high femme.  Very frustrating.

My personal transition path included medical changes.  The path others take may require no medical intervention, or different care.  We each find our own path. I provide these dates for the curious.

I just wanted to say it was really nice to hear you were getting TMI with your wife. Your list of Pow zoom Horse etc words are probably going to get stuck in my head the next time my wife and I get intimate.   :D

Oh and your letter was great but my editor would say to cut down the word count. Of course he says that because they pay by the word...  I do agree the kick in the teeth thing might be better thought then written down. And Kaitlyn Jenner? I wouldn't want to get anyone thinking along the lines of jokes about her.

I just wanted to thank you all for you commiseration. It does help even if not right away. The dour mood was gone by the time I got home.

Today is a new day. I woke up with my typical tension headache compounded by sinus. It'll fade soon.

thank you. I had to ask for help because ...... I don't like myself in any of the photos from that night (5 photos) ... I needed an outside opinion. Not that Sarah is an outsider, not any more. You know what I mean, I hope :)
