First, I want to thank PINKessence for accepting me as part of your family. When I came across the site I was excited, but had to come back a few be fore applying.
I'm an over 60 gal, who, after many clothing binges and purges, have given up fighting to be what society calls normal and accept myself for who I truly am. And that is Mary. Like many, I knew from an early age I was not a typical boy. While I didn't get the opportunity to play with girl toys (my sister is 6yrs older…Read More
I was very surprised when I haven't found my name in the desk of the birthday announcement. I thought that maybe I've forgotten when I was born. But no. Today is the 1st of December and it's really my birthday.
Last night I watched a TV program documenting the plight of girls with anorexia and bulimia. The program followed several young women through a Florida based clinical intervention program. Most of the girls were at about 80# when they arrived. Some wanted help, some didn’t and those who didn’t went around sneakily undermining the efforts of the program’s psychiatrists, doctors and nurses. The TV program continued to follow these girls after they returned…Read More
We - my parents, my wife, and myself - celebrated Thanksgiving today (Saturday, November 30,) due to my wife's work schedule. She works a 3-2-2 7a-7p schedule so had to work Thursday and Friday and, thus, couldn't join us in the actual holiday.
I'm most thankful for an e-mail message from my brother suggesting we meet for lunch when he is in town visiting my parents next month. I haven't seen him at all for two years and for all practical purposes for three years. His wife did not…Read More

As you can see I don't write many blogs, so I thought it was about time I put something in writing. Again, mainly to ask a question.
What are your views on short hair?
My SO (gorgeous wife) has had short hair for years. She hasn't got the softest features & is tall (nearly 6') but carries it off brilliantly. Therefore I am very envious of her...!!! My job requires me to have short(ish) hair so I'm pretty constrained to what I can do with my own. Besides I must admit to…Read More
I was just wondering what the options were for permant hair removel. I want to look into a home lazer but I would like to get one that is effective at as little cost as possable.The Flash-N-go sounds good but it's pritty expncive @ about $ 300.00 Is that the best deal or is there a cheeper system that is effective ?
Although I have had many extremely unhappy Thanksgivings in my life, this day has always been my favorite holiday because of the traditional meaning of the day. It is a reflection of my profound faith as a Christian and it is the time of year, along with Christmas where I am focused on the many things I have to be thankful for and not thinking of the difficult things I have come to terms with that have happened in recent years.…Read More
What is a lady to do when this condition exists; I have never really gone into the public with a makeover or dresses because I tend to think I will not pass and be ridiculed as being a man in drag, I do pass at a distance however just don't get too close or I will wind up being clocked and anyone with me as well will be embarrassed and do I have to get facial fem sugery before I really go out in other words do I have to wait until then because there are so many pretty ladies out there that…Read More
11/25/13 Had my first session today with Laura. All the work I did to seek out and find a good therapist seems well worth it now, she really is great and a good fit for my personality. The session was really just to get to know each other a bit, so no actual work got done. Just the idea of going to a therapist to begin this journey is exciting and little scary to me. But despite the fear and anxiety I will continue on and do what needs to be done for my happiness.
Through no fault of your own, I seem to be back on an accelerated schedule in my writing. Maybe it’s the time off from work, maybe it’s the need to publish after these long hiatuses, but more likely it represents a sadistic desire to have you all share my pain and triumph, but mainly the pain. Ahem, be that as it may…
When last we left off, our heroine was…Read More
Hi girls, my name is Brenda. I would like to tell you ladies a little bit about myself, and please feel free to ask questions. Where do I start? When I was 16 I ran away from home to memphis tn. on a motorcycle and (OH WAIT, I better not start that far back, altho how many girls do you…Read More
So it's been a while since I added a post.
I've been going out as Angie about once a week - just to gain confidence. Most of the time, it's to a Peets or Starbucks here (both are coffee shops). If I have the time (and energy, work has been crazy), I head to a nearby Target or Marshalls just to browse and shop.
So there have been a few successes (or rather nice things that happened along the way). I just wanted to log them down here to remind myself when I am feeling down that…Read More

Hello everyone just wanted to take a minute and introduce myself. my name is jess and I'm a 32 year old parent to two amazing children. about a year ago i decided that i needed to confront my feelings and i have been trying to soak up as much knowledge as possible ever since. I'm working towards coming out to friends and family but just not at a place where i feel comfortable yet. I am an avid motorcycle enthusiast, veteran, and parent. Any way a big thank you for excepting me into this…Read More
A few weeks ago, a few friends were talking online about their transition experiences. Most of the friends in question are in the Atlanta area which, by all accounts, has great resources. A certain person of the bunch said that, knowing what I went through in the Research Triangle, she would have moved to get better treatment. I told her that I tried to in the summer of 2012 (I had multiple job interviews with West Coast, US, companies) but my wife was opposed both to moving and having a…Read More
The time has finally come for me to recount my great surgical journey. Yes, I know the title seems to indicate that I’m going to draft some kind of clever poem full of wit and homage to a Christmas favorite, but that’s simply not going to happen. I thought about it, but I already infuriate the grammar police in my readership with run on sentences, mixed metaphors, and made up words. It’s all in good fun until someone comes by and pokes my eye out. This is going…Read More
Hi everyone, just a quick post to let y'all know what has been going on since my car accident back on September 25th.
After the gentelman in Texas ran a redlight doing 50 plus and hit me square in my drivers door, I was admitted to a Texas hospital, until his insurance ran out, yes he was underinsured.
Finally within the past month I met a local Neurosurgeon who gave me some news, and is sending me for some more MRI's as well, too see if there is anything els wrong. So long…Read More
Flash to the past, 1991 my youngest brother dies from AID's, 1992 my best friend's brother in-law dies of AID's. The hospitol, the AID's floor, the whole experience.
Now this movie comes out, and I really want to see it, but I know I have to watch it in private because I'll break down and cry. The Dallas Buyers Club.
I was in Texas last year visiting family, I also visited my late brother who died at such a young age. This movie is going to rip me to pieces, but I have to watch…Read More
I'm really nervous today. My son and his girlfriend, they are ingaged, are coming over to visit. I've only met her 2 times before and for a very short time, I was in uniform. She knows about me and today I'm dressed up waiting for them. I don't know why I'm nervous, I've been through this before with his last girlfriend, and they even lived with me.
I took extra care in applying my make up, less is best, don't want to look like a transvestite prostitute although I do enjoy in my own…Read More
