I am the FIRST Trans Person EVER to Work in a VA Hospital in Ohio!!

It is my pleasure to share with everyone that for the past 2 months, I have been working at my local VA hospital!!  It took a long while to get through the process, but it finally happened!  The facility is beautiful, the job is wonderful, and I am sooooo happy to be working here!!  I don't know if people know about me or not, because everyone treats me great!  I've already been invited, and gone out to dinner after work with some of the doctors and nurses, and in general, everyone has exceeded…See More

Sonja Dawson replied to Debra Thomas's discussion VA Endo "No Experience" Cancellation in the group PE VETS
"Debra, It's not as simple as you make it sound.  If it were, then we all could just have the sandwich maker at the local Subway hand out hormones.  It's not a "one size fits all" kind of regiment.  Age, weight,…"

Sonja Dawson replied to Debra Thomas's discussion VA Endo "No Experience" Cancellation in the group PE VETS
"Yep, Cherynn has a great solution!  Because the VA is run state-by-state, and you're both in Illinois, this shouldn't be any problem.  Just have the 2 clinics talk to each other.  If that isn't working for some reason,…"

100 Words About Me:
I'm head over heels in love with my wife, and we've been together for almost eight years! She met me as a woman, and it was love at first sight for both of us! I've taken hormones off and on since I was sixteen, and if I could do it all over, I wouldn't have taken any breaks. Being a veteran, I receive excellent health care through the Veteran's Administration (V A), and since summer 2011, hrt for trans-women is covered! I'm happily back on hormones since then, and all I have to pay is a co-pay with no premiums! I live as a woman, and graduated from Ohio State.

Overall, I'm very happy and blessed to have met the woman who not only exceeded my expectations, but my dreams too! Laying next to her on the beach in Cancun while working on my bikini tan lines was pure bliss!

Training a Female Voice

Posted on June 4, 2013 at 7:26pm 4 Comments

The other day, I called my insurance company, and when I stated my name, they asked if I was associated to Mr. (Me).  I said no, this is me. Put me on hold, and when she came back, she asked if I was really my wife (the woman in my profile picture).  Again, no.  I then explained that I'm Ms. Me now.  Hold.  A supervisor then comes on, and proceeds to ask me 5 different personal questions including my phone password before they would finally believe me.  After that, they then switched my…

Hi Sonja. Welcome to Pink Essence. I must say your profile picture is strikingly beautiful.

As with so many of us PE is our home on the internet. I hope you will find it so. You have some catching up to do as you get to know us. And, there are lots of girls here from mid Ohio there will be several who know about doctors and hormones.

Hugs, Jenny
