Second Birthday
« on: October 27, 2021, 03:19:42 am »
Yesterday, the 26th of October, was 11 years ago when I had my Service Related Injury that ended my Naval career and left me a Disable Veteran with a lifetime of agonizing pain.  A while back, I metophorically considered my old self to have passed away, being reborn into a secondhand body.  This was sort of just joshing around and somewhat of a poignant thought.  So this year, I made the 26th of October my Second Birthday.  That has had me thinking.  Why can't this be Britney Samantha's Birthday, instead of the Birthday of my past life?  The who I was had plenty of Birthdays.  Time for who I now am to have hers.  When I turned 50 3 years ago, I fulfilled a personal promise to take action to find my missing half and True self, making this a logical progression for me.

So the question is, does anyone else have such a similar take on the latter, about their new life.   Does anyone else celebrate a Second Birthday or something similar?    Curious if I am not alone in this.

  • Started taking action after decades of suppression in 2017. Finally secured my true female body by GRS in 2021.

Yes I am sure many do, just like you and me.

We celebrate date of coming out, of starting HRT, of going fulltime and of surgeries of which obviously the most significant is GRS.

Oh yes! June 27th was the day I found myself and I celebrate it as my true birthday! (Official birthday is July 1st). I also celebrate my go live date of August 7th

i have 2 birthdays.. it stems from early childhood... as a dissociative with a couple of real life personalities.. it was always the case that the 'female' birthday was in May and the Male one in September.. 
Since I resolved all those issues.. and now it is just me inside my head.. I still keep both birthdays.. I had so many missed as a kid I think I actually deserve to now catch up.. I also like presents!!

As a transwoman, I guess we have a number of days we 'could' use as second birthdays.. the day we started HRT, the day we went full time, the day we had surgery... they to me are all important days.. but I will stick with my 2 birthdays for now.. (but am considering the amount of presents I could bag if I had 5!! hmmmmm) :)

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
