PamalaFlinn : (21 December 2014 - 08:11 PM) The publics attitude & tolerance toward us must change . More & more scientific research is needed to support our biological and physiological differences to the norm.  This research is imperative to our fight for our own civil liberties.
jennifer38 : (20 December 2014 - 03:43 PM) I'd like to thank everyone who dialed into my phone conference, earlier today.  It was a wonderful time.  Lord willing, I plan to do more of these after the holidays.  I will announce one as time gets nearer.
carrell : (19 December 2014 - 01:40 PM) Any members in New Mexico ?
jennifer38 : (19 December 2014 - 12:16 PM) I still plan to have another phone conference, tomorrow.  All members are invited.  Details are on the calendar.
UsernameOpti... : (18 December 2014 - 07:55 PM) Happy Birthday to stephani
MonicaPz : (18 December 2014 - 06:17 PM) Happy birthday, Stephani!
AshMich1945 : (18 December 2014 - 10:57 AM) Hello...my name when I'm transformed, is Ashleigh Michelle James. I'm a lifelong cd/tg from sw Connecticut. I've been fascinated by female attire and femininity since I was very young. Now that I'm mature, I can enjoy all the benefits of being a woman. I hope to meet many more members from CT and share my experiences with them as well as possibly go out for shopping trips, coffee latches and brunch.

veronicabeta : (15 December 2014 - 10:16 PM) Recalling all the times I cursed "dial up" and was worried the Interweb might have become self aware !
UsernameOpti... : (15 December 2014 - 09:30 PM) Duct tape, bailing wire, bubble gum and a good hammer will usually fix nearly anything!
Lori : (15 December 2014 - 08:43 PM) Sorry about the outage today. We had server problems but banging on it with a hammer seemed to work! ;)
CharityLynnC... : (15 December 2014 - 08:22 PM) what in the world cause this site to be down for a day...lol..tried to get on and got an sql server error..
jennifer38 : (15 December 2014 - 10:56 AM) I plan to hold another conference this Saturday at 3 PM Eastern.  For those who came to the last one, the number and meeting ID are the same.  Anybody who does not have the number and is interested, please message me, as I've been advised to not openly post the number and ID for fear of them falling into the hands of troublemakers.  Also, anytime I bring up religion and The Bible, it is not meant to intimidate or embarrass anyone.  I'm sorry if anyone feels put down, because I have no intentions of doing so.  In spite of my transgender feelings, I have a deep love for Christ, but I respect those who don't believe like I do.  My goal of these telephone chats is simply to create a telephone hang-out for us fellow trans on all levels of the spectrum, and for our allies.  I hope to see you all there.

jennifer38 : (12 December 2014 - 01:12 PM) I thank everybody who called into my telephone conference.  It was wonderful.  I feel good about talking to others and hearing their perspectives.  Lord willing, I will hold another one, soon.  The conference number and ID will always be the same.  I will let you all know when I plan to do this, again.  God bless you all.
JayPea25 : (12 December 2014 - 11:50 AM) Anyone in Baltimore!?

The dreaded Therapy session .... Nah It was all good ,LOL

Posted by stephani , 11 May 2011 · 184 views

Ok , yesterday I had my first session with my new therapist ( by the way didnt have an old one ) She's a great little lady , open to the needs and concerns we have concerning Transition , It is so hard to find a qualified phycologist that knows and can properly aid with all aspects of transition and any other issues we may have but I think she is going to be a great help , I dont have any real issues other then those fricking SOC rules I know they are in place for a reason but I am not the only one that knows and feels them to be a detriment to those seeking the medical therapies available to us , and yes I know they are just guide lines to help with those that have no clue what , where , and how they are going to live their lives before , during , and after transition ( if this is the route you choose to take ) but for those that have a plan are mentally stable , physically able , and medically fit to undergo this tremendous undertaking it sets up nothing but road blocks and side steps to what in any other setting would have other wise been a smooth transition through life .

I think she is going to be an asset in my transition and not a hinderance the fact that they the dr.'s there have aided in other transitions makes a big difference and that this is really her and the main Dr.'s specialize in and  with those with gender issues helps to , the ladies their are wonderfully respectful and sincerly concerned about my needs and feelings , it is quite refreshing to have expierianced this because as so many of you know that office encounters can be strenuous and filled with tensions both on your part and theirs , these gals were sweethearts always stating my name ( stephani ) and asking if I needed something while I waited . I was apprehensive about seeing a therapist because I know how risky it is , what kind of therapist am I going to get will they help me or hinder me , will they be supportive or try and block my every move , so much anxiety over the out come when choosing a partner in transition because this is really what they are a partner helping you make good decisions in your life's journey , some one that can listen unjudgementally no matter what pops out of your mouth , The forum and all the friends we make here are a great help but some times you really need some one to look into their eyes and know they do feel what you are going through . not to mention grab you a tissue when the box is empty (this was my case :-) ) , I hope others here have a great Phycologist aiding with their transition and if not I hope you find one , Best wishes My loved friends and Friends yet met .. Huggs


Oh and by the way I have read that Dr.'s seldom to never Email back well , this Dr. takes about 30-45 minutes before she gets back with me , no matter what time of night we talked before going to their office I admit this is a hard thing to find but you can if you do your home work ... I really respect these gals so professional and carring . Thanks Dr. Farnan and Dr. Burton if your reading this , yes I talked about you guys LOL I love this forum and all you guys as well ..

It has been a long time coming and life just kept getting in the way I was again broken and at my wits end , I just said to hell with it and the bills and the rest can stew for all I care .(LOL). I feel better but, had another anxiety attack yesterday , just about the now what's you understand , I have waited and put things off so long they pilled back up on my plate , this Fat chick cant eat that much (LOL) , eccentially I live fulltime so I am not really worried about this concern if she brings it up I cant dress any more Feminine then I do ( atleast not till my Breasts grow a bit more , this Acup bra leaves alot to be desired LOL) , also I take HRT so aint worried about that either , just the little things I still am in the process of dealing with , OMG I am rambling I am sorry Hugs Hun , PM me if you want , and Thank You so much .
