I saw this today that the new US flight screening system is tracking people based on name, and now DOB, and gender: Article on CNN
So it sounds like when checking in for your boarding pass you have to provide gender. This seems a little disturbing because it could be misleading. I know there have been threads on PE about checking-in at the airport. Unfortunately, this might add some additional… Read More

I went to see my therapist Dana today. I'm so blessed to have her for my therapist. I owe a lot of my progress in my transition to her.
Today I had an experience that 15 years ago floored me. I didn't bat an eye this time. I was in the store getting some stuff for comfort after my surgery Thursday and wanted a bottle of wine to have tonight with dinner, among other things. I got carded for only the second time in my Sherri life. I have the ugly Mike picture on my DL at the… Read More

I went to my first counseling session with a transgender therapist today. I'm still amped up about it and can't get to sleep. Thought I'd write a few things.
It was nice to open up about my life around these issues. Has me thinking about so many things this late at night. I'm definitely recognizing the extent that fear has affected me in my life for so many past years. Getting tired of that. Sometimes things is just hard, but that's okay.
I go back in another couple weeks. I… Read More

I'm having a hard time dealing with friends. I don't know why went bowling tonight, did not bowl due to my back. but after a bit (Exp after Zach yelled "he's recording just play" and pointing at me) I felt so bad and and more of a 5th wheel/unneeded. noone really talked to me and the people who meet me were looking at me confused after zach said that and before hand when erica side"he" too. it's depressing, soo depressing. I'm trying to push bad thoughts out of my head but it's hard to meet new… Read More

At the request of a person I deeply respect, love and admire I am posting a reworked comment to a blog, so the comment becomes a blog. Hang in there this gets better...I think.
Diversity of Personalities
Back in my Sunday School teaching days I did a series of lessons using potatoes and introduced the "tator" family to the holy rugrats and the "family" also including "irri", "spec", "agi" and others ( if one wants the details of… Read More

Where Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi failed in passing ENDA with the Transgender community included within the bills language, it seems the new Speaker of the House of Represenatives, John Boehner (R)-Ohio will at least be encouraged to pass the bill with prompting from the Log Cabin Republicans.…

The title of this Blog is deplorable, but I thought it was a good, positive article otherwise. Lots of true information and perspective put out into the world here in this piece. Thesea aren't six-figure jobs, but as one of the interviewed women indicates - they do help in rebuilding one's resume.
Best to all,

Here I am, sitting at my keyboard wondering what to write. It's been almost a year since I was layed off. And now that I've started getting my Social Security, I don't really want to go back to work. But then again, I haven't done Anything since coming out and seperating from my spouse that would remotely hint of Transition. No counciling, no hormones, very few friends left. And a wife who can't see anything in a positive light. So I sit her in my RV( my home now) and wonder if I will ever… Read More

I chimed in a few times to the "Birth Order" blog entry elsewhere on here, and I've heard theories in regards to being born after a miscarriage contributing to making us who we've become, or are becoming.
So, earlier tonight, I asked my mother outright, that I felt I was a middle child, since I knew I would have had an older sibling. Technically, I am, and mom regards me as the first born child of two.
However, mother told me, even though it was… Read More

One thing remains clear to me: the inevitability of my transition whether I “want it or not.” From as early as I remember, I wanted to be a girl. The daydream of running away and going to school as a girl occupied a lot of my time alone. I had picked out all the clothes a preteen girl would want. I’d browse the Sears and Penney's catalog and figure out how much this would cost. The… Read More

One of the drawbacks of taking Spironolactone is it's a potassium sparring drug, meaning it inhibits the excretion of potassium causing a buildup of potasium within our system which can cause many health problems including arithmeia. It is advisable while using Spiro to reduce or limit one's potassium intake. Here is a link to a list of foods rich in potassium which one may want to watch carefully in one's consumption.:…

It's now been a month (well a month tomorrow) since I 'officially' began my physical transition. A month ago I downed those tiny little minty-tasting anti-androgen's and mistakenly put that little estradot patch on my arm (read the directions Jess....it goes on your butt!). I'll be honest in saying that I didn't expect to experience any changes until at least Christmas, I was wrong. Wow, was I ever. I think what has so completely blown me away is the complete inner change that has occurred. It… Read More

Due to a change in professional status, I had to go out the other day and buy some male suits. It was so depressing to go out and spend almost a thousand dollars and not one thing I purchased ended in Dress or Gown! As we were leaving the store, my wife mentioned what I had been thinking.....that I could've bought myself that wedding dress I've been wanting for that amount!
Hope you all are having a great Holiday!
