Chelsea's Transition Adventure
« on: February 21, 2018, 11:59:29 am »
It's still a few more days to my first appointment for therapy so I figured I would make my own page like others to document my progress and have some fun.  I'm probably going to post some silly random stuff but that's me. :)
Wish me luck she writes me the letter sooner than later. I'm ready to get this HRT started.
If you want to know more about me here is my intro page https://www.susans.org/forums/index.php/topic,234289.0.html

Fun Time!

I thought everyone would get a kick out of this, so here goes.

I am getting better at makeup and taking it off. I use the neutrogena wipes to remove it and am getting used to the feel of removing it.  Late last night I removed it without the mirror for the first time because I was so tired. This morning I get up and go out to the shop. (I own a machine shop, I know a girl machinist.. who would have thought LOL) Anyway my neighbor came over looking to borrow a wrench. We talked about 10 minutes about random crap and he left. Later I go inside and my GF say's "Whats that on your eye?" I go look in the mirror and had missed some maskcara. OMG I just talked to the neighbor with maskcara on. LOL

I assume that things like that will happen until I come out to everyone but its all fun to me. I think I'm past the caring who knows part now. :)

Hugs,
          Chelsea

As someone who still presents as a guy, I wear mascara daily. Guys do not notice at all...ever. But girls notice instantly lol

You look great by the way :)

I love makeup too. I will have to remember that. I'm used to rubbing my eyes anytime without thinking about it. :)

Hi Chelsea, nice to meet you!

Hi! Nice to meet you too!



Update

I just came out to my best friend!
Everything is all good with us. His first response was "Your gonna help me work on my cars no matter what nail color you got on."  LOL  It feels like a big weight just got lifted off my shoulders.  I have been friends with him sense childhood and have worried about telling him for a long time. I know i will have some friends that probably won't talk
to me anymore but, that's OK because I have to do whats best for yours truly. :) 2 down and a lot more to go.

Hugs,
       Chelsea

YAY!  I have told some friends who I knew would be accepting, and I have a couple that I am really stressed about telling.  You have the good kind!  Congratz!

I have only came out to two people and have a lot more to go. I have two family members that I am the most fearful
about telling. I get nervous just thinking about it.

Funniest thing just happened, well not to funny at the time. I have been feeling more comfortable with myself about transitioning sense I started posting here. I just made a run to Taco Bell and had to stop for gas on the way back because the car said distance to empty was like 4 miles. I stopped and was pumping gas and just felt like something was not right. I looked down and was wearing Chelsea's pink Skechers. Thank god there was only one other person there at the time. I could feel my face get hot, I was so embarrassed. Cars driving by and it was one of those slow old pumps. The first time out for me is going to be rough I can feel it. :)

Oh my dear Chelsea pink sketchers in a gas station... let me tell you about the Time I filled up my pickup at a busy truck stop/ gsa station 3 or 4 states away from home.....

 "The rest of the trip to Missouri would have been uneventful had I not locked myself out of my truck. There is one distinct advantage men have over women... Pockets! Had I been traveling in male mode this would not have happened. My wallet would have been in one pocket and my keys in another. I also probably not have been locking the doors because my purse was being left inside the truck.
  I had plannned on paying at the pump, pumping my gas, and driving off down the road again. Locking the keys inside with me on the outside sort of put a crimp in those plans. So there I was having to perform the classic damsel in distress play in real life. How embarrassing! Having to go inside and explain my predicament to  one person who led me to another that dialed a phone for me so I could get the locksmith to come unlock the truck. I explained he would be looking for a woman and described my pickup for him. I then went back outside after thanking the people that helped me and waited beside the truck in the very busy gas station until he arrived and let me back in. It was not the kind of real world female experience I was looking for. *sigh*  But as you can tell I survived it."

Hugs,
   Laurie

Your welcome any time. Maybe by that time I will have got the nerve to go out in public. :)

I been trying to use Photobucket as a image host with no luck. I signed up with Imgur last night.
Crazy thing is that I have used Photobucket for years with no issues.  O well.

Loving my teal nail polish!  :)
