Hi there it's me again jus couldn't keep my hads off these keys this morning so I thought I would write about something that I have been thinking about a long time. I recently like yesterday discovered women that started rockabilly in the 50's when men were in "charge and the women were homemakers" these ladies had guts, loads of talent and they had a passion for music that today is being re-discovered. Wanda Jackson sang her songs in Bakersfield heck 20 miles from my old house and never…Read More

Hello! I am just thinking what i gonna do to be a happy. And i get it, we must have opportunity to express our feelings into reality by behavior or bright make up, maybe cute dress it depend on our mind. So why the society is trying to put our desires and feelings into stereotypes which we (by their opinion) have to pursuit all entire life.

Hello, ladies! I'm so happy to be a part of the Pink Essence community! I was first introduced to this wonderful group at the Keystone conference last March, thanks to my good friend Jamie Smith.

My attempt to tell my story with no bars held. I ask that no replies be made here. I'm just telling my life story.
I'm going to post this in segments. When I'm done I'll stop the moderation button, and if anyone wants to ask questions, I'll answer.
In no way am I asking for sympathy or praise, I'm just telling a story of my life hoping it helps others.
The end of my story starts here.

I've no friends left. I've seemed to have pushed all aside, or really, they have seemed to have left me.
Where do I go from here? What is next?
I wish to lay down, sleep, peace full sleep and awake, like nothing went wrong, but.......
I am strong, very strong, well, I pretend to be. I'm really just me.
I thought I had friends, never I've thought I was shunning them. Wrapped up in a world I wasn't ready for.
I thought I was ready, I thought wrong.
I live in a world of make believe, and I pay the price. I wonder at times, am I really real?
I've stopped the fight, I lay back, look at myself.....I'm real. I have to deal with this life, take charge of myself.
And the band plays on.....and on.....…Read More

We all have some sort of agenda going on in the back of our minds. Something we pushed away into storage, only for it to emerge with out warning. Being confronted on it with out preparation. Wishing we didn't store it, and wishing we studied it.
After it is all done and over with, after we made a fool of our self, and time to reflect on the subject, we ponder... why didn't I answer correctly?
After thought, the misery of the night, when thoughts of the day rome your mind,…Read More
I've made appointments to resume electrolysis. It has been many years now, but it is something I must complete.
I'm going for 30 minutes once a week focusing on my chin area. I've had 100 hours done in the past on my cheeks and upper lip, had a good break, and now time to finish.
I'm the boss this time, I pick the spots, that's what I love about these new appointments. When we are done with my chin we will move on to my neck, and finally finish what is left on my upper…Read More
So some members of the drag community are angry with Facebook because they can't use their stage names. Humm, let me think about that one. I suppose it could be an issues esp. if their identities weren't known to the general public, their families, employers, etc.
I actually empathize as it could be a problematic practice for any gender non-conforming person. The truth be known, I have only been on Facebook since August 2011. I "came out" as a trans woman in the late spring of…Read More

Once again I've removed all my blogs. I'm going in a new direction. Yes I will be boring here for a while.
I have this link of gender therapist, not sure of the latest up dates, but none the less, a list to help get started.
I wish all you the best.

I spoke with Denee Mallon on Skype this morning/evening and she is a mere 3 weeks away from her defining surgery.
The date has been set for 13 October at Lutheran General Hospital in Chicago( I assume that's the Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, thank you Rachelpedia(c) for enlightening me!)
I am amazed that Medicare has come to the 'party' so promptly, I really thought this would have been a drawn out, protracted affair so all credit to the people who have acted so promptly…Read More
This trans had made great strides personally on named secretary of Missouri congressional District for trans at that position, secondly I am a little nervous. I was invited several months ago to join the parish women council. I am worried entering a cis-gender activity but apprehensive. These little strides I made for the past three years in this community is building. Forge ahead

A lot has happened in my life over the last 6 months, and I'm doing a lot of soul searching, and I'm seriously considering the option that I want to start a new chapter in my life.
I have no ties to the area I am living in now, so once I save up some finances in a couple months (I had to use some of those resources for an unplanned crisis), I could pack up and go in a heartbeat. I'm thinking a few months out, so I'm not making any hasty decisions like I have in the past, but I'm…Read More
Had a great time at the SCC. Really enjoyed the Pink Essence Party. I haven't logged on for a while. Partially because my work schedule has been so hectic, but also because i was "outed" to the wrong people, and had to go into solitude for a while. GLAD to be back. I will try to blog and stay in touch more often. I need this.
