I wouldn't have guessed you were in the mid 40s at all.  Being who you are is one way to feel young.  It's certainly helped me. 

Congrats on the voice progress.

But now old friends they're acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day.

Woke up this morning and found my finances are just unrecoverable. Bank in the negative and no money to put back in and tonight will be another overdraw fee. The fight in me left this morning and I am nervous to the point I am sick and throwing up. I cannot finish transitioning with no money and don't even have money for a refill of my medicine. I have never been this down in my life to the point of not wanting to be on this earth anymore. If this is disturbing mod please delete. Love all of you and sooo sorry if I have wasted your time.

Hi Chelsea please dont think like that at times things can be tough money is always a never ending issue
You have your family and friends looking out for you.
I'm not exactly sure what you do for work but your an amazing car painter could you pick up some contracts for that in the time being ?
This is unrelated but I did stand up paddle boarding once and the instructor said the most amazing advice
When you look down you fall down look up stay up that can be applied to all walks in life
I hope things get better for you 
We are all there to support

Chelsea:  I know that that it was no accident that you signed your post reply with your old male name.  Come on girl, you are going to get out of this financial fix, believe in yourself.   Temporarily many self-employed business people, when going through tough times with their business ... go out and get a part time job or even a full time job for a spell. 

Get your feet on the pavement, or get your fingers working on the internet and put some job applications out there.   Even a low wage job at a gas station, convenience store, Wal-Mart, etc will help to offset some of your living expenses and thwart off disaster....  or some "shade tree" mechanic or car body work that you can do.

I know that saying "hang in there" gets old after hearing it frequently... but chin up, take action to get action.
Please keep us updated.   .... and no, Chelsea, no one is going to delete.... so you don't do it either.

Hugs and as always best wishes to you ....  and "hang in there"
Danielle

Note: feel free to PM me if you have anything more that you want to discuss.  <3

Chelsea, you are not wasting anyone’s time. We are here to offer whatever support we can. There is a way out of your financial troubles, there is always a way, but you need a clear mind to find it. I can understand how the financial stress can weigh you down to the point of feeling paralysed. I have never run my own business, but I grew up with my parents running their own business. They had experienced similar hardships when the business stopped bringing in money. They found alternative ways for the business to make money, and if that didn’t work, then they went out and found a job with someone else until they figured out a way to get their business up and running again. Once, they even completely changed the type of industry their business was in, they went from manufacturing clothing for the retail stores to manufacturing ceramic products for the home. There are alternatives out there for you.

What are your skills, how can you use those skills to make some income? What jobs are available that don’t require specialised skills, to keep you going for the short term? If you have been feeling sick and throwing up from the anxiety, try and calm your mind, eat some food and sit down with your girlfriend to try and come up with various plans and backup plans. It sounds like cashflow is your immediate problem. Prioritise what you need to do and then create some plans on how to achieve these plans.

I don’t know who this Charles person is. I have signed off on many of my posts as John when I felt down and beaten. It only made me feel worse. I am Jayne and you are Chelsea. Keep your head up and get your brain working to find a way to put your skills to good use.

Keep venting here as much as you like. We are here to help. Someone might be along that helps you come up with the right idea to get you back on your feet.

Don’t give up!

(((((Hug)))))

  Okay Girlfriend,

  That'll be enough of that nonsense!  >:( "not wanting to be on this earth anymore" I have been there Chelsea. I have been there recently if you will remember.. It is NOT good. Not good at all, but Hun, I understand that sometimes our problems in life can feel insurmountable. All to often though Chel, we find that there does exist some solution. These solutions can be things we don't want to do but become necessary.  Take a look around you. Do you have something you could sell? Something you have that others might want  that you can replace later? Can you have a garage sale?  Is there some temporary work you can do for someone in the area? Anything thing? Come on girl think! There must be something you can do about it.
  But not wanting to be here is NOT an option!! Do you hear me?

Big Hugs,
  Laurie

Hi Chelsea,                              17 May 18

I hope you are feeling better and have had time to think through your situation. Negative thoughts only make it seem worse. Remember, no matter how cloudy it is the sun always comes up in the morning.

You have a lot of friends here so please return to posting soon. We miss you!!!

You will come out on the other side of this Chelsea. I just know it, You have an amazing spirit. If nothing else, sell/pawn a few things just to continue HRT. When things turn around, you can always restart the other things. Transitioning seems to be a very positive thing for you and obviously makes you happy. At times like these, you need that happiness to sustain you.

As I had said to you in a post before, you are a strong, courageous woman and will work through the problems of today. Solutions may not seem to be directly at your finger tips but you will find them. They may be a solution just to get you through the short term or ones that will lead to an even better direction. Work to get through this short term issue and the future will look after itself. I have always seen you as a positive thinker. Yes, daily issues occur, but you do have a positive view of the future. You can see it in the mirror! Sending positive thoughts! Hugs, Kelly

Chelsea, thank you for the quick update letting us know you are ok. You just concentrate on fixing your current situation, that is your priority. Don’t worry too much about posting updates here if your are too busy. If you can spare a few minutes just to let us know that you are ok, that would be nice so we don’t worry about you.

Take care of yourself.

Had Another Great Day!

It started off with work and more work. :) After all that I went to mom's as always I check on her every day. Alivia cooked dinner and we all sit around and had a good time. About 2 hours later Alivia went back home and I spent the next two hours with mom. I did the impossible and told my mother I'm transgender. I didn't just up and say "I'm transgender" I had to explain to her everything. If I had not done it this way she would have just gotten angry because she had a different outlook on transgender people until today.

At the time all the boys my age hit puberty and had a growth spurt, I did not. All the guys around me had harry legs and muscles and I was still like a kid. My mother takes me then to a doctor in Knoxville that give me testosterone shots for a month or so to "kick start me" the doctor said. I never told mom but after about 2 or 3 months after those shots is when I started having my first gender thoughts. I sit down today and told her everything that has been going through my head from that moment. She just sit and listen to me the entire time without getting emotional or angry. (Like I thought)

After I was done she ask me a lot of questions and end the end her last comment was "I just want you happy and I love you." Just like my brother I did not think this was going to go well. I would not have told her if it wasn't for the stress I have been under this week over finances. I was to the point of "It can't get any worse". She said It's gonna take some getting used to so I'm not going to take Chelsea around her just yet. I am so lucky to have her still in my life.

So good news..............    I'm OUT!!  I don't have to hide anymore!! :D

BIG Hugs

 Chelsea!!!! That is great news!! I am sooo glad telling her did not go like you feared it would. I know that fear too Hun we all do. And yet time and time again our fears turn out to be less than what we imagine. We humans are put together to fear things and our mind magnifies those fears. It is an ingrained survival instinct. Even knowing this we fall prey to those fears and it either paralyzes us or causes us to run from them. We cannot help it. But if we confront those fears they seldom pan out to be anything like what we thought.
  I'm proud of you girl.
  You will work through your others problems also. I believe you can and will.

@Chelsea .... wow, that is a great and wonderful report from you today.... what a difference that a day or two can make.  I know that besides me that there were lots of your readers very worried about you.
It is so very good to hear a happy and positive vibe coming from you this evening.

Oh yeah, isn't it like a big weight is now off of you shoulders after coming out to your mother???  Enjoy the peace about your transition journey now.  It was nice that your mother had a good reaction to your announcement and you were wise to not just blurt out that you are transgender, instead you took the time to explain your feelings and the how and why... again, very smart move on your part. 

Regarding your childhood as a boy or young man,  I had similar problems, in high school and in college I was a skinny runt of a guy, no muscles, no bulk, very short, only 5'4"... 5'5" if I fluffed up my hair...   I had a soft girlish face, and a voice to match. very light and thin body and face hair and basically looked like a flat chested girl.  I was constantly and rudely bullied and had a difficult time being around my male classmates because they had turned into men with bulk, muscles, tall height, face and body hair, and deep male voices.  The locker room scene was torture.   All of that, of course worked in my favor as I transitioned in my early 30's.  Even the girls I dated noticed and commented on all of that.... not exactly what a guy wants to hear from a potential girlfriend.
Some of what was going on with me sounds similar to some of your story too.

Wow, and you reported that you have "work and more work" ...  hopefully that turns into proceeds and profit for your business and you can start getting caught up.... another big burden lifted!!!

Thanks for reporting in and your wonderful update.
Hugs and hugs,
Danielle.

Had Another Great Day!

It started off with work and more work. :) After all that I went to mom's as always I check on her every day. Alivia cooked dinner and we all sit around and had a good time. About 2 hours later Alivia went back home and spent the next two hours with mom. I did the impossible and told my mother I'm transgender. I didn't just up and say "I'm transgender" I had to explain to her everything. If I had not done it this way she would have just gotten angry because she had a different outlook on transgender people until today.

At the time all the boys my age hit puberty and had a growth spurt, I did not. All the guys around me had harry legs and muscles and I was still like a kid. My mother takes me then to a doctor in Knoxville that give me testosterone shots for a month or so to "kick start me" the doctor said. I never told mom but after about 2 or 3 months after those shots is when I started having my first gender thoughts. I sit down today and told her everything that has been going through my head from that moment. She just sit and listen to me the entire time without getting emotional or angry. (Like I thought)

After I was done she ask me a lot of questions and end the end her last comment was "I just want you happy and I love you." Just like my brother I did not think this was going to go well. I would not have told her if it wasn't for the stress I have been under this week over finances. I was to the point of "It can't get any worse". She said It's gonna take some getting used to so I'm not going to take Chelsea around her just yet. I am so lucky to have her still in my life.

So good news..............    I'm OUT!!  I don't have to hide anymore!! :D

BIG Hugs

Dear Chelsea,                      17 May 2018

Mom's are special and you have a real Jewel of a Mom. Very happy you have had "Another Great Day" in your life.

Not having to hide is a great feeling; it's telling the truth about who we really are. That took a lot of courage to tell your Mom; I think I guessed right that she would welcome her new daughter.

Keep your attitude positive and everything will get better. I'm proud of you for letting your Mother know the real Chelsea. I'm sure she is very happy to have her new daughter.

Chelsea, you are a very special lady and I know you are going to get your business running smoothly again. You are an intelligent and talented young woman; I know you can do it.

Best Always, all my Love,
Christine
