Remember when not too long ago I said I was going to move on to other things and write about those here? Yeah, yeah, that’s all going to happen, but give me a minute. Jeesh! As my son used to say at 2, “Don’ pooosh me!” For the record, we never did in the literal sense and were gratified that he was able to use the phrase in the correct cultural context. We are proud and all, but wish he would have stopped once he got to the ‘F’ word and other little horrifying utterances when grandma is…Read More

What a hoot today!
Some girls on the (closed) Facebook group "Trans Beauty Network" started posting photos of their bare leg(s) and on a hoot this morning I just decided to do that too.
Here's the pic (if anyone is interested) - https://www.dropbox.com/s/i72wbf8sd84fjak/legs.jpg
Had a pedi Friday (see last blog entry) so heck, why not? Whoop went the fleece pants and there I was in my panties sitting on the…Read More

I started HRT February 1st. I was put on 2mg of Estradiol twice a day and 10 mg of Medroxyprogesterone Acetate twice a day. After about 3 weeks I found the side effects so severe that I called the doctor to inquire if this was normal. She side I should cut the doses in half. I did that for a week but still found the negative side effects to be too much for me. I decided to stop and sort of do a reset for a month. I will then consider trying to start again but with some combination that is…Read More
In skydyving at about 1000 feet ya beter have your cute out of your going to bounce or fall into the ground at terminal velocity. I quit partying and pulled the cute but was my altimeter offf? I saw my thin very very skinny body in the mirror today and it scared me - was I to continue this free fall? I looked like my 89 year old mother before she passed God rest her soul. The paramedic said right off lver failure.Oh no I had this happen once before without the severe weight loss. This is…Read More
ANGRY AT JURISDICTIONS THAT DON’T OFFER CIVIL RIGHTS PROTECTIONS FOR TRANSGENDER PEOPLE
The county where I work, is lagging behind many jurisdictions in civil rights for transgender/transsexual people. In fact they don’t even list sexual orientation as a protected class.
This is frightening to me in terms of job security if I other the trans people do face discrimination.
The other local counties, at least include sexual orientation and DC is the most progressive…Read More
I have been for the very first time in my life clean of drugs for 72 hrs now. Life born in a bed during one of the largest lightning stoms to hit the West Coast I lay drenched in sweat from detoxing totally anaware of all hell breaking loose around our little house. My little dog barking at me running in circles, my companion he held down things that were banging the walls the stikes were feet and not a second away.
I rang out my nightshirt all wet me weak thin and exausted He held me…Read More
Today being the 9th day of the 3rd month, is the 4th Anniversary of my surgery that gave me my true congruence.
4 years.............how time flies when you're having fun.
I have this innate ability, developed from my childhood, of compartmentalising what I don't have any desire to remember, it's a pretty full area of my brain but it keeps my sanity intact and allows me to get on with life and much of my previous life is shut away in those compartments.
The parts I do…Read More
So yesterday I had a scare.
Went to the nail salon to have my mani and pedi. Was not able to park at my usual spot which is maybe 50 ft from the salon so I parked about a block away.
Coming out of the salon, while waiting to cross the road, I noticed a hooded guy. Once the light turned, I started crossing and I noticed he seemed to be following me! He pretended not to be but he was moving in the same direction I was.
I quickly walked in to the nearby Peets and…
Really struggling today. I've been on hormones for a while and I have really liked the results but I haven't done anything else towards transitioning. Sometimes I feel like such a fake TS. I'm not even close to full time. But the fact is I wish every day I had been born female. My male life hasn't been bad but it's not what I wanted. I'm trying not to live my life in fear but I haven't been able to take the next steps.
Hi to everyone on PINKessence,
It’s been a long while since first coming here, and I hope I spent it well. I’ve spent the last year or so looking for information, groups, doctors, therapists and having the worse time finding people in my area. The closets I ever fine are 60 miles away and that just a distance I can’t travel…Read More
Contrary to some hopeful rumors, I continue to breathe and move about the world. Not in a Kwai Chang Caine way where I skulk about the countryside involving myself in strangers lives and use to slow paced Kung Fu to solve all their problems, but nevertheless, I am here. I did take a little hiatus from blogging after I ran out of things to say that I haven’t already covered. In the mean time while I dream up and concoct some new spins on things you were only dimly aware of and not that…Read More
OK, my last post was really all about schilling for a worthy endeavor, but the spike in my traffic reminded me that I seem to have maintained a readership in spite of going silent for a few months. Huh. Well, that’s a surprise. Here I thought everyone was here for the jokes or seeing what crazy way ol’ Michelle managed to publically humiliate herself this week. Therein lies the rub. The huge cascade of interesting things that had been happening to me for almost two straight years has finally…Read More

I actually got the letter mid Febuary - it was left unmarked, had no clue where it came from. Only thing that the letter told me was it was 70 miles away next month (at the time). It wasn't until I looked up the postcode that I knew it was the Gender theraphy I had booked this time last year! No phoning, no you've got in. Just a random letter with the sparsest(is that a word?) of information of when and where. But zero mentioning of why.
Well! I jumped up and down literally when I had…Read More
Hello everyone, Where do I start , sadness like I hav'nt felt in a long time, like I have never felt. Profound and to core. Last week my dear mother passed away. She was the light of our family. And I find hard to see life without her. She was a woman of complet grace and humility. She gave of herself and never asked what's for me. She was selfless in her love for her family. I was blessed to spend time with her most evenings these last few months. We talked of her life of her…Read More
My partner's sister asked her husband what he would do if his son came to him and said he wanted to change his gender. His reply was "No, you were born a boy, you'll remain a boy". Then she played the interview I did on a local radio station CJOB (the link:https://soundcloud.com/680cjob/transgendered-life-rikki ) After listening to the entire interview, he said "Well, if…Read More

A Journey can give an overwhelming impression that the wrong choice have been made. You should have went right instead of left, filled up at the station 10 miles back or avoided that big city during its rush hour.
It has almost been 2 years since I began this journey. People have left my life, others have came into it. I resigned my job in 2012, because I was unhappy with what I was being expected to become. I had reached the top of my field because I cared about my employees, I gave…Read More
In Oztralia, we still have free-to-air TV as well as Pay TV and we have Aunty ABC.
Our ABC is the Australian Broadcasting Corporation which is solely owned by the Taxpayer, in the same way that the BBC is in England..
Politicians have this mistaken belief that they own it and countless Governments year after year threaten to curtail the editorial rights of this August Body but our Aunty ABC shows no fear to man, beast, or politician and they are renowned throughout the Land as…Read More
My name is Kathy and I am a cross dresser. I have been dressing for a long time and never tire of the wonderful satisfaction and joy I feel when I do so. Being en femme makes me feel complete and I enjoy my dressing whenever I get the chance. I love going out for coffee with friends, dinner, dancing and just chatting.
My cross dressing began just before my teens. I was going through our clothes hamper looking for a favorite shirt when…Read More
