thank you for the birthday messages.  sorry I have not been around but having left my UK home and travelled to the USA I just have not had much time to update what was going on...
tbh, things are not going amazing..  I am stuck in the USA  miles from my daughter and seemingly not a friend to lean on.  But that is what I have come to expect from life.

oh I guess I also should update my surgery news too... so I am just a week shy of 4 months post op.. and all I can say is everything is great.. everything is healed nicely.. it all works fantastically well.. for every aspect. and it looks cis-normal. there is hardly any scarring and full sensation.. really is a bit miraculous.. my dream of 'waking up a girl' took a few months of healing.. but, blow me down, actually worked!! LOL

Sarah,

I'm glad your healing has gone well, but I'm sorry you are feeling alone. Are you away from Jay? I hope you can get connected soon.

I'm sorry to hear that you're stuck without friends -- if you're anywhere near me, you can definitely reach out and I'll be there!  (slim chance, though... usually a trip from the UK will bring you closer to NYC or LA).

That is fantastic!  I'm nowhere near having my surgery just yet, but it makes me happy to know that others are doing so well post-op!

Life is short.. Fleetingly so.. One moment your in the gush of youth. The next, looking at retirement options.. Your dead far longer. Only death and taxes are certain but for most, you won't achieve everything you want.. You'll never find that you've arrived, because its a journey ultimately to your grave.
No one has died thinking they wished they watched more TV.. Or movies or ate fast food.. No one died thinking they should of been neater or tidier
Most people go with regret
Not having spent time.. Time... Doing what they love and being with those they love..

For some of us, transitioning gender is part of that journey. Why or whatever the reason.. There is a need to transition. It, for most, increases that happiness
I don't know of anyone who has been through this and said 'I wish I waited"
I think you either know, or you don't... And if you don't then it's probably not the right thing for you.. But if you know.. Don't waste what life you have left on worrying about what you're losing... You've lost that anyway.
I am convinced that spiritually, if there is a supreme being, her attitude would be.. I gave you love, I gave you life.. Go use them...

@SarahEL
Dear Sarah:
Thank you for sharing your insights and your thoughts...
I definitely agree with the important salient points that you brought up:


        Life is short.. Fleetingly so.. One moment your in the gush of youth.
         he next, looking at retirement options.
   
        No one has died thinking they wished they watched more TV.. Or movies
        or ate fast food.. No one died thinking they should of been neater or tidier
        Most people go with regret Not having spent time.. Time... Doing what
        they love and being with those they love..

        There is a need to transition. It, for most, increases that happiness
        I don't know of anyone who has been through this and said "I wish I waited"


     ... and YES, I believe that God's attitude is:  
         "I gave you love, I gave you life.. Go use them..."

Thank you again for your lovely posting and the sharing of your thoughts.
HUGS,
Danielle

I don’t know about the food thing.  I enjoy the heck out of some fast food.  I might actually think (on my deathbed) gee I’d like another cheesesteak with peppers and some jalapeño chips.

Or, a Special with Provolone sandwich from the Passkey in Pueblo, Colorado.  Or, maybe an Apollo sandwich from Groucho’s Deli… with the sauce.

You have some nice, positive thoughts there Sarah!  A good attitude… may you have many wonderful years ahead!

Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.
