Yeah honey I had two bulging disc three years ago. I was out of work for 6 months. I had that epidural steroid injection in my back.....did nothing.  I went to the chiropractor 18 times at $55 a pop and had to stop because of money. I walked with a limp for a year and a half after that. The doctor said that is wasn't bad enough for a operation so I suffered.
After a year and a half of that one Saturday morning I got out of bed and It never bothered me again. I know that sounds weird but it happened. So I feel your pain!  I know back pain all to well. lol

I made it back and a great time. I did go in public finally and it took me a while to get me out of the car. It was just a Family Dollar store but hey I did it. Joni walked a little bit behind me to see if anyone was paying any attention. I only noticed a couple people look but it was just a second and it wasn't a weird look. I was nervous but tried my best not to show it as best I could. After I got back to the car I got sick from my nerves and just about lost my dinner no joke. It was scary enough that I'm not looking forward in doing it again for a little while. lol

The most fun was when we got back to Joni's place and yes Danielle I took a few pics for you, even some silly snap chat ones. I just didn't wear the choker because I think it draws attention to me. I will get rid of the adams apple as soon as I can but Im starting to accept that it is what it is. Im just ready to be myself. Seems like it gets a little worse every day. When I say worse I mean I want to be Chelsea full time more every day and Im about to go ahead and just do it.

Hugs!

Yeah Chelsea!!! Congratulations, what a big step forward for you. I am proud of you for mastering this important milestone. Having had you niece around to support you was great and surely made it a bit easier. Glad you have such great support.

As usual you do look fantastic in your pictures

Hugs, Sarah

Chelsea, I remember those first steps well, it wasn't that long ago. I can relate (as most here can) very well to that feeling. I am Faith almost 24/7 (who am I kidding, I am 24/7 now) and I still have those anxiety moments. Sometimes I look forward to them, it means I'm trying something new.

You should look forward to each anxious outing, it actually a great feeling :D

Faith
ps, you look great in the photos. I'm not a fan of the snapchat pics, they hide too much of you.
To those that have followed me: If you wish to stay in contact with me, send a PM with your email address and I'll respond via email.

@Chelsea
Dear Chelsea: 
It was so very nice to see and to read your last update.... 
Thank you for including your latest pictures.

I am so glad that you had a good time and that your bravery about going out and about as Chelsea seemed to increase your desire to venture out more.   It is good that your niece Joni was your helper in that regard.
 
I will be looking forward to more good news updates from you as you feel free to post more.
Hugs,
Danielle

Thanks ladies. This has made me just want to come out even more. Yeah I did it but Im still not ready. Joni wanted to fix my natural hair and told me I could go to Walmart without makeup and pass. She must be crazy because there is no way. lol I really had a great time. If it wasn't for Joni and Beth pulling me out of the car it would not have happened.
Joni told me not to make eye contact so you would have thought I had a movie playing on my feet. I didnt think at 46 years old the hormones would have done a lot but I'm so happy with the way its going! lol I do appreciate the sweet comments girls so thank you!

Hugs,

Hi Chelsea,                       12 August 2018

My  new avatar is me, with only women's clothing and is how I present almost all the time. The exception is when the weather is bad, I'll wear a pair of my old male sneakers; if doing dirty work I'll most likely be wearing old male work clothes though I do have some old women's jeans and some women's jeans I bought specifically for these situations. As my male supply dwindles and I have women's clothing that is no longer nice enough it'll become my work wear.

You are 46 and worrying about how you look? Try 78. Go out as Chelsea and have fun and quit worrying what others  think. The more you do it, the easier it becomes. These days hardly anyone cares or notices. Send Charles on a long vacation, about a 50 years worth and make Chelsea the real visible you. Every minute you spend hiding Chelsea is a minute wasted. You can never get that wasted minute back. Every single one of us has a finite number of minutes, hours, days reaming; don't waste them on fear or any other reason.

You are gorgeous; get out there and be the real you, and you know who SHE is.

Best Always, All My Love
Christine

Yes you are!  Its kind of addictive isn't it!!

Joni wanted to fix my natural hair and told me I could go to Walmart without makeup and pass. She must be crazy because there is no way. lol I really had a great time. If it wasn't for Joni and Beth pulling me out of the car it would not have happened.
From the earlier photos you posted your natural hair is looking good.  Don't underestimate yourself.

I didnt think at 46 years old the hormones would have done a lot but I'm so happy with the way its going!
You're never too old!  Besides who would have ever guessed you're in your 40's?  Not me. 

Thanks for the update Chelsea.

You look great Chelsea! Please don't ever let anyone make you feel bad about what you do or do not do in bed. Especially if they're not your partner.
Congrats on the male fail!
Also we have a similar hair texture. My hair is much shorter but after washing it, the waves in mu hair are exactly like that.

The first time is always horrifically terrifying. It definitely gets easier and easier though. Now I mostly don't go out in wig and makeup out of shear laziness because when I do it's become just another day. ;D

Chelsea, you look fabulous - and I am seriously j-e-a-l-o-u-s of your hair. If I let mine get that long, it would be as stringy and lifeless as spaghetti. I also find it hard to believe you're in your forties; my guess would have been 38-39.

It's easy for those hidden by the relative anonymity of a computer screen to tell you to "go out and be yourself;" it's more difficult to do for some but were you to see what we - and Joni and Beth - see, those gut wrenching fears would evaporate.

Hugs

Susan
