I figured I would jump in here and give all of you something to laugh about. lol What do I do when I feel like crap??  I go out and buy something to wear.(only $9 for both) I got my very first pink shirt and a cute pair of shorts today and was gonna share. I tried to get more of me in the pic but my arm will only reach so far. Also I wanted to show all of you what happens now when I take the wig off. I know I look completely hideous. This is the first time any of you has seen me without a wig. lol..... My hair has never been over a half inch most of my life and this is all new to me. Its not long enough to put into a ponytail yet so the picture below is what happens. lol About half of it that has receded is growing back and is about 1 inch long already. The rest of my hair is 5 inches now so I cant wait for this stuff to be really long. Everything is so slow and I hate wearing a wig.



Sorry about the Adams apple. It will be gone soon. lol

Omg Chelsea,

Your face has changed so much, Your looking awesome.
Try and put those self doubts behind you girl.
If my results are as good as yours look I'm going to be bouncing around for joy.

Plus know your pain with the hair, mines the same length and I've just a headband on non stop until it gets longer.

Keep smiling x

Shorter hair works pretty well with your face and as  long as style pulls your hair forward over your forehead, you should be able to pull male fail off. A pixy might be a little short but I think if your hair is cut right, you can ditch the wig. Seeing you live a somewhat physical life at work a shorter cut might be more practical and a bit cooler.

Thank you Dena,
I think I will keep letting it grow and when I feel ready it might be long enough to do something with.
 A few weeks ago you told me about looking in the juniors for clothing and that is where I found these shorts, so I wanted to thank you for the idea.

Hugs,
       Chelsea

Hi Girlfriend,

  Well what can I say? It already been said the pink top (it's a top not a shirt) and shorts look good on you. Pink is definitely a good color for you. And as been said several times, you look good in Both pictures. There is no "hideous" so lose that word, you are not it. Your own hair though a bit messy looking has real possibilities if you learn how to style it as Dena pointed out. You look cute with the clothes and the color of your own hair.

Hugs,
   Laurie


Thank you Laurie,
 And thank you for correcting me on the TOP.  You will have to excuse me for living as a guy for 40 years and its kind of a habit. lol 

Hugs,
       Chelsea

@Chelsea - your natural hair is PERFECT for a pixie cut!!! and you can keep growing it out longer. I'm completely serious - your own hair has got great potential right now for styling. Your brows look great!  Love your pink shirt and short shorts!
see here for ideas.

Looking good!

Sonja.

Thank you Sonja, I think I'm just going to let it grow for a while. I still have a while before I'm ready to go full time.
Thank you for the ideas. :)

Dear Chelsea:  Be sure to go to the LINK that @Sonja posted on her reply yesterday...
         https://thecuddl.com/pixie-haircut-ideas/
It is amazing what a good hair stylist can do even with very short hair.   I would love to see you try one of those types of very cute hair styles with your natural short hair... and get rid of the uncomfortable wig in your hot weather.

Hugs as always,
Danielle

I figured I would jump in here and give all of you something to laugh about. lol What do I do when I feel like crap??  I go out and buy something to wear.(only $9 for both) I got my very first pink shirt and a cute pair of shorts today and was gonna share. I tried to get more of me in the pic but my arm will only reach so far. Also I wanted to show all of you what happens now when I take the wig off. I know I look completely hideous. This is the first time any of you has seen me without a wig. lol..... My hair has never been over a half inch most of my life and this is all new to me. Its not long enough to put into a ponytail yet so the picture below is what happens. lol About half of it that has receded is growing back and is about 1 inch long already. The rest of my hair is 5 inches now so I cant wait for this stuff to be really long. Everything is so slow and I hate wearing a wig.



Sorry about the Adams apple. It will be gone soon. lol

@Chelsea - You could always do what I did - tell your stylist you want a pixie cut that can also double up as a side part or something similar etc I told him I'm trans and wanted something that would look femme or be styled male if needs be.  make sure you have the photos of your favourite styles on your phone - i simply took photos of my screen on the website. He showed me how to style it both ways after he cut it.

Take care,

Sonja.

Chelsea .. HEY! Nope, I don't know you nor you me. I have perused your thread from time to time though. Like most threads on here, I read but don't reply, not really having anything to contribute and that whole 'I'm a stranger' feeling. Anyway, typically when I quote a reply I trim them down and remove pictures (why inflate the thread with duplicates). In this case I felt it pertinent to include them because the photos are totally worthy and pertinent to the thread and my reply with it.

I am at the top of the list of people that hate pictures of themselves and/or mirrors. I know exactly where you are coming from when you say, "wish I could see what everyone else does". I felt I had to reply and agree with what others have stated, you look great in both of those pictures. I don't see the guy in them at all. In fact, I see a very pretty girl.

OH, I am with the 'natural hair' crowd. The wig is nice but something in the way your own hair looks suits you very well.

I rambled a bit, sorry, it's what I do, I lost track of my thoughts a few times in here and kept going with a new line. Oh well :P

Faith,
Thank you so much. That is very sweet of you.  I see right through the makeup and wig. To me I look like a guy with makeup on. I'm not as bad now as I was 4 months ago. I look back now at some of the early pictures I posted and get embarrassed lol. Welcome to my crazy thread. :)

I'm the same way with older pictures, I barely even recognize the person in them. Which I suppose is good, it means we've made progress!

And you don't look like a guy in makeup AT ALL without the wig, your hair is super cute. I wish I had more on top at the moment for no wig to even remotely be an option for me.

Well Alivia has gotten in touch with her family in Alabama and has made arrangements to leave here Saturday. Shes going to have a place to stay with her aunt for a while so she will be in good hands. I still care a great deal about her but I know its the best thing to let her go. I have for the last 4 hours been crying thinking about 10 years of history with her. I don't mind being single for a little while but as I have said before I am a very lonely person anyway. I have anxiety already because I know whats coming after she leaves.
 Now I am worried about myself. I know I will just work through the financial issues I have so I'm ok there. I see a lot of transgenders that are single. I don't know why but its scary to me. Once I do go full time, how am I going to meet anyone? I get hit on often on Facebook but they are all guys. I'm not into guys so there is another problem. Maybe I'm over thinking this because I am stressed, I don't know. I guess I'm just being a wimp today. lol

Hugs,
