Hi Ladies ! 💃
« on: July 09, 2020, 11:35:45 pm »
After too many years (decades really 😎), I have the common story of fits and starts, denial, purging, fear and loathing, shame and guilt......hiding.... I have been sliding down the slippery slope towards transitioning for several years at least I think so and hope I haven’t been trying to ice skate uphill 🥶

I found Susan’s Place a while ago, began lurking 👀, and finally realized I was not alone. It was such a relief to find many others sharing common history and bonds. I feel like I know many of you by reading your stories of trials and triumphs. I am looking forward to sharing my journey with everyone and making many life long friendships as we navigate the unknown together.

Hugs,

SoCal Holly

PS. Is it just me or do other people have trouble hearing the letters and words. I’m having to guess to make it through the verification process lol

Hi Gents !

Thanks for the reminder Danielle! 😇

I’m still a little shell shocked I had the nerve to actually follow through this time. Tried many times before and just couldn’t do it. Feel like a chick that has been kicked out of the nest.

Welcome.  I feel the same way. Long time lurker here too but I finally joined and started to face myself.

Thanks for the welcome and encouragement Tony and Susannah!

Things have moved at warp speed this week. I thought I would have more time to process everything. Called my PCP for endo authorization to insurance, insurance called me the next day good to go, called the endo for an appointment, they said how about tomorrow at 9 am (yikes that fast !?), blood work next day, 3 days later I’m back in his office, then to the pharmacy with magic pills in hand. Wow !

Gotta say it was like a 10 ton weight was lifted off my shoulders, what a relief I’ve felt. Calm the last two days I have never experienced before. Just feels “right”.

Excellent! That really is warp speed. Here in the UK, you won't get that speed even if you go private.

Nice job! And welcome to your journey to the other side!
