I have to agree.  You may not be in good spirits but you look just fine.  I hope your headache is resolved soon. [hugs]

Just about held my lunch down . NO just kidding as you look lovely as usual, its a workday face . Mine is nowt to shout about when at work , covered it crap and lippy gone. Now go and believe in yourself , in fact stand in front of a mirror and repeat " I am beautiful " 10 times . Do I have to start handing out slaps???

I believe in myself, it's photos and mirrors that don't believe in me. and I can't "repeat " I am beautiful "". I have not so fond memories of biting into a bar of soap for lying ... or was that cussing ... probably a bit of both.

Well, let me comment than!
You look like a normal every day woman to me.  No makeup, just a normal face.  I still like your hair, I think it looks great!  That is the length I would like to have!

I keep wondering how to style it or cut it. Bangs or no bangs. So, it just keeps growing because I can't make up my mind. It's longer in the back. The front is short because I used to self-trim the bangs.
psst, there's makeup. I do try to go sparingly.

I have to agree.  You may not be in good spirits but you look just fine.  I hope your headache is resolved soon. [hugs]

I spent 10+ years of my life with constant daily headaches. It's been a year since I had one. I guess it's making up for lost time.

Thank you (all of you)

For what it's worth Faith, I think you're being way too hard on yourself.  I do understand not liking what you see when you look in the mirror, but you've put work in to improve and it shows.  You look good.

Thank you.  Yes, I am getting better, sort of. People keep telling me the same thing so I am trying hard to see what they see. I do have a self-image problem apparently :P

btw, Welcome to my corner of Susan's :)

Did anybody ever checked for the reason of those headaches?
And yes, you are a good looking woman, if your mirrors tell you a different story, something may be wrong with them!  You should not use the mirrors the use in those funny carnival setups that purposely distort people!

You hush up missy.

Hey! It's late enough now, I can say what I want. You're out of it for a while and won't be able to respond until it's too late ... I need to think of something

Today's update .. hmm. Well for one, I couldn't think of anything to poke Liz with. Root and Stem came to mind, I just couldn't get a handle on how to use them. All I could think of were good, non-punny, thoughts ... hrummph, It's depressing :D  I guess I'll have to leave the punny stuff for Kendra.

Feeling a little better today. My ears popped twice so pressure & congestion must be easing.

let's see
took another daily selfie (yes, I do it daily, you just don't get to see them) .. I had to delete it. My reflections weren't horrible but that photo, ick!

Oh, got a jury summons notice. I haven't been called to report yet. Part of me doesn't want to go (I know it's important, I just don't like it), part of me does .. so I can wear my skirt suit and get all dolled up. I want to see their expression when they check my ID :D

Lots of concerned thoughts for some of my friends here on Susan's .. even those that don't know I think about them.

Speaking of Susan's. I'm concerned for the forum. The whole feel of the site has changed in the past year, I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's the reduced interaction with those that frequented the site when I first joined. I don't know.

That's it for now I think.

I am glad you are feeling a bit better, Faith.

I have served on a jury once, pre-transition.  It was educational, seeing the justice system from the inside.  I would urge people not to try to get out of it.  Of course, your reasons are good ones, too! :D

I was on a jury twice, and both times I was elected to be foreman.  I liked the experience a lot.  In one of the cases it was my medical background with which I was able to convince some of the fellow jurors that a defendant was not guilty!
The state attorney had a medical expert witness, who was just telling medical bullshit to the jury!

Glad to see you feeling better.

  I totally understand you with the selfies and not seeing what others see.  I think yours look fine, and you say the same to me when I've posted a pic.

 Occasionally I'll like what I see in the mirror but it never seems to translate if I take a picture of it. I know I tend to see my flaws first, and then if I take a picture its seems like I'm documenting them.

So how do we start to see what everyone else is telling us is there?

I do sometimes, not all the time and not most of the time. I do, however, see her more than I used to. It used to be never.

I have two issues with mirrors and pictures
1) Seeing him
2) Seeing too much her, she looks fake, false, made up .. this is in certain photos. These I tend to think is because my mental picture of 'self' is still too far from reality.

I need to get my head together :)

Or how about a new, realistic mirror,  one that will not distort your view? (inside your head)
