Best wishes to the bride.

I’m a little confused though.  I thought you guys were already engaged?  I suppose you were engaged to be engaged, and now he did the knee and ring thing most women want?

Regardless, I am happy it is happening, and I am sure it will be sooner rather than later.

We met on here... we became best friends... we fell in love and had to be apart for 12 months due to covid.. then 4 weeks ago we finally got to be together... and I found what it means to be happy at last..

I have a couple of weeks left here until I need to return. My daughter is still in the UK and her Christmas is more important than anything and I will be with her.. but apart from my love. So, back to the zoom video for us. in 10 weeks he will be travelling to the UK.. to see me and my daughter and to help me recover from my GRS.
For the next 12-18 months my family will be on different continents.. maybe next Christmas we can be 'family' in one place.. I hope so.

we posted at the same time.. :)

and, well, yeah.. This is home.   So I guess I have 'integrated' well :) :) :)

and the most common phrase that I have said to me since arriving 'Oh my, your accent is wonderful.. is it British??'

Very belated congratulations to you, Sarah and Jay! I've been away and had to go back and read all the posts from early November. How exciting. With this and your plans for early next year, it's really looking up for you and your family. All my love. Randi

Back in the UK now.. and the reality of trying to get xmas organised in a week is looming... but the good thing is me and my daughter will be together.. the bad, my love is still in MN with the snow and the cold...

in a little over 7 weeks we will be together again, as I go in for my GRS..
I have to go down to London for my pre-assesment on the 1st Feb.. and get a covid test done on the 10th.. and then isolate until the 13th when I check in for my op on the 14th...  Jay is hoping to get down before I check into hospital, so he can visit me (and we have been told that I am allowed just one designated visitor during my stay, despite covid restrictions)..

I guess maybe the enormity of the operation I am having should hit me.. maybe it will at some point.. but at the moment I am totally clear this is the only way forward for me. I don't really think of myself as anything other than a woman now.. travelling to the states on my own, living with my partner for 6 weeks as a couple.. meeting his family and friends (who do not know my history).. just being me.. Is the most wonderful thing ever. For the first time in my life I am happy being me.. my GRS will just be that final step to be complete. I cannot see any doubts.

So.. GRS is a bit of a focus.. but we also have a wedding to plan.. and we are tentatively looking at late August next year to tie the knot... and whilst I want the dress, the big statement of our love.. most importantly I want him. forever.

4 years ago I was really ill physically, had huge mental disorders and was suicidal.. A desperately depressed guy.. Today I have a clean mental health, better physical health and am one very happy woman.. Testament to good therapy, good endocrine and good doctors... and good advice from places like this..

I know Christmas can be a tough time for a lot of people.. especially if you are alone and struggling with gender issues.. I was that person.. I understand how utterly impossible it all seems.. how much you think you would lose if you try to find your happy. And how black the future may look... I have been there, I looked into that void. I told myself in that dark time.. 'things will get better'... I was right.

Oh, life is bigger,  It's bigger Than you and you are not me
The lengths that I will go to.  The distance in your eyes

Dear Sarah:
WOW, I much enjoyed your "exciting" update regarding your transition journey
that also includes your journey with Jay.

Yes indeed, the GCS (GRS) surgery is a major event not only in your transition but also
it is for sure a major medical procedure.
You stated the following:
"I guess maybe the enormity of the operation I am having should hit me..
...maybe it will at some point."


I do think the enormity of the operation and the enormity of how it will affect you mentally
will surely hit you before and after your procedure.

I will be looking forward, as I always do, to your continued updates and postings.
I am always wishing for your success and happiness.

I trust that you will have a happy, joyful, and MERRY CHRISTMAS and holiday season.

HUGS, HUGS, and many more HUGS,    
Danielle

Sarah, welcome home, or at least home as it will be for a little while. I'm glad you and your daughter can be together for the holidays.

How exciting to look ahead only 7 weeks. I don't know whether to hope the time flies, or you feel like you have the time to prepare.

Sarah, I'm so far out of your loop. If you're pretty, green and blue planet that's the third from your star, bursting with life and happiness,think of me as a comet that comes every 500 of your revolutions, a cold ball of ice, but just now, shining with happiness for you in your night sky, before I return to the black void.
