Right from my heart

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…

The way to find myself

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.

(((( Alone ))))) Independent & Free

Somehow or other - I Always shy"d away from pursuing any relationship - Of course part of that reasoning may have been routed in some sour memories when I was a kid /

Always fighting between my parents over money - the swearing - the anger - failed expectations - hardship just making ends meet..... Always dissatisfied - stressed out - trapped in a continuous cycle of struggle & hard work !

Somehow or other - Even if I happened to be born happy as "Joe" - never in my wildest dreams… Read More

What happened to me? The life of a Transsexual

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.

Hi. I'm LindaMarie, I'm 59 years old. I'm still confused as to where my…

I refuse to cry

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.

Caught out in the rain

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.....…

After Midnight

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,…

Here we go again

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…

Drag Queens Vs. FaceBook

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…

Denee Mallon - Her Medicare-Funded GRS date is Set

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…

The - 5 - senses of "Shirley" / In search of peace & stability

I am not sure where I belong.

Being out if town for a few days allowed me to have some carol time as well as get a pedicure and nails done and do some shopping. It was wonderful. My plans were to make it over to Amanda's for a makeover but our schedules did not match so it allowed me some extra time to think. That is when I concluded that I don't know where I belong. My family commitments do not allow me much time for carol, my wife would not be accepting, I can't even think of talking to her about it as I could not stand… Read More

forging ahead

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

Preparing to embark on a new chapter in life

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…

SCC

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.

Fantasy - Or - Reality / Rules of Engagement

When I first started dressing up - it was mainly a matter of personal gratification & fantasy /

Conformity & expectations kept me in check, till the age of 30 - The fulfilment I got from dressing up as Shirley was more powerful than being hooked on heroin ! /

Although I never got into that dark side of life (thank God) - I was truly obsessed and in love with "Shirley" - To the point I never developed the skills to share intimacy with any human being..... / Some folks might… Read More
