    Sorting through a new life.

    I don’t know how I missed this post before. Your posts help me with my own relationship and I appreciate you sharing the ups and downs. Yes, every relationship is a work in progress and I do what I can to understand what my wife’s needs are but no one is perfect. I have to step back from my life and look at the big picture so I can see things more clearly and therapy definitely helps me with that. This is one heck of an adventure to be on in so many ways that sometimes I lose sight of what is truly important. It’s definitely not boring. I hope all is well for you and thank you for all of your sharing. It has really helped me. 😊

    Final purge

    Thank you Barbra, I get it and it is very nice of you to offer the clothes. I think that there are many people that do need them. I am bringing a large amount to one of my groups and they can pick through them.(we do it occasionally) It’s wonderful that you have lived a full and rewarding life, not to many people can say that. 😊 I wish you all the best with the life ahead and beyond. It seems to me that you might have some great experiences and stories to tell and I would love to hear about them if you would like to share. 😊 Christy😘

    Final purge

    Hello Barbra, and welcome to TGGuide. I could repeat what Emma, Monica and the others replied, but that would be redundant. Now 64 years old, have done that ,too, many times since my 20's and almost did very recently again....but I didn't. Check out my blog. "Thank Goodness I didn't purge!" I guess I finally decided I would never be to old to "NOT Purge", but to each her own. Still very happy to have met you. Hope to hear more. ☺️Jessica

    Final purge

    Ladies, thank you all for the reach-out and welcome. My first purge was in my 20's; followed by another in my 30's; and this will be my 6th, all being a decade apart. Age; space; and physical limitations have taken me to this point in my life. I further welcome your contacts and questions, but I have lived a full and rewarding life and the time has come for this decision. Hoping others will benefit from decision. Barbra

    Final purge

    I don't know if I would call it a "purge" per se, but I did recently give away a lot of clothes. It was stuff I had either not worn in forever or never worn at all. I had no use whatsoever for it, so I gave it all away. now I look thru some clothes I have and found a lot more that I haven't worn in 20 million years, and I'm ready to give that away. Like I said, I wouldn't call it a purge. Just letting go some clothes that I don't need to someone who does need.

    Final purge

    Dear Barbra, May I ask why you are purging? Is it because of lack of support? Have you given local support groups and gender conferences a try? If you are new to TGGuide, I would like to invite you to give it a try. In my opinion, I feel that TGGuide is one of the best transgender websites. First of all, we are free of charge. Our members are kind, supportive and knowledgeable. We have members of all ages, including yours, married and single. Also, may I ask if you are purging to save a relationship or a job? Have known a few persons (face to face in a support group) have purged for those reasons, but often it doesn't last. Either way, we respect your choice, whether you care to explain it or not. Before you purge, I beg you to read our Forums and Blogs, and search under "purging," to learn how others have handled it. Am inviting our members to share if they have purged after years or even decades in the community. We are here for you! Your friend, Monica
  14. Hi Barbra, welcome to TG Guide, but gosh, what an intro. Twenty years since your last purge? Your offer is very generous indeed but I feel compelled to ask: are you sure you want to do this? Most've us have gone through many purge cycles over the years and then, always as far as I know, been inexplicably drawn to rebuilding what we purged. Now, I assume that you've thought this through and I'm preaching to the choir so please don't be upset with me for my comment. Regardless, you're quite welcome to join our group discussions with or without your having gone through a purge.
  15. Final and last purge. York - Lancaster area. Twenty years plus of everything. I'd rather give ( free ) to the community than to give to Salvation Army or Goodwill. Large variety, some new and others gently used. Shoes 10; 10.5; and 11 Clothing M; L; 1-X ( 14-16-18-20 )

    Voice classes ! Richmond Va.

    They offer something similar at Ithaca College, NY, but I think it's more like a college class. I like the 4 week deal; wish I was closer!

  19. Just some observations from my own experience to share on breast forms and adhesives. I've had 2 sets of forms for a few years, one a size B cup and one size C cup. Only very recently have I begun to use them with an adhesive. They are silicone, (no liquid silicone) so they will not leak and can be slept on. They are very comfortable with a bra and form well on my chest when wearing a bra. I got them from www.magiccurves.com. They are on the pricey side and take 4-5 weeks to ship, but are well worth the time and the price. For those who have naturally larger boobs or those recently starting HRT but only beginning to develop, they make them with a deeper concave backing, too. After two years of consistent use, they maintain their form very well and always look and feel like new. For a realistic look and comfortable wear it is important to wear the correct bra size with them, both band and cup size. You can apply make-up up to match your skin tone with powder concealer, but be sure to use a good quality translucent setting powder so as to not color your clothing. I don't bother . They stay well in place without adhesives when using a bra, even a sports bra, cami style bra, or without a bra when wearing a cami with built in shelf bra, or dress style that is form fitting around the bust. When using an adhesive, I use Hollister medical spray adhesive , and Hollister adhesive remover, both the spray and the wipes. Preparation and placement is very important for a lasting and comfortable fit, 1. Be sure your chest is free of hair, 2. Wash the area well with soap and warm water, dry well. 3. Wipe the entire skin area with an alcohol pad to remove any oils and evaporate dry. Lay a large piece of aluminum foil on a flat surface, place the forms on it face down so the side to be sprayed is face up. Spray the forms liberally right to the edge, but take care not to go over the edges. *I wear poly gloves, NOT LATEX, as the adhesive becomes tacky very quickly and is annoying to have to remove from your fingers). Use a piece of saran wrap wrapped around your finger to spread the adhesive evenly to the edges. Again, this has to be done quickly, as the adhesive becomes very tacky very quickly. Spray a little more adhesive and allow at time to set, according to the manufacturer, 5 minutes. ( I wait 8-10 minutes). Do not spray any adhesive on your chest! Put on a bra one cup size below your forms cup size .and leave just below your bust without the straps. When ready place the forms on your chest starting from the bottom and stretching upward to between your collar bone and shoulder. Cup entire form to chest and hold firmly for several minutes paying special attention to the edges. Bring your bra strap up and hold. Repeat with the other form. I leave my smaller cup size bra on for an hour or two before removing and either going braless or wearing the correct size bra. I agree with Micheal,; in that one should be careful when going out braless; just be sure to wear a form fitting top or dress. Most shoulder apparel and halter style will work well with going braless. I also prefer to use some adhesive even when wearing a bra, as they feel like a more natural part of me rather than just being held in place by a bra.😍 Practice at home and see for yourself...Good luck💇‍♀️ Jessica

    Sephora Classes for Confidence

    Dear Friends, Sephora put on two free classes at the Fantasia Fair Gender Conference, and they both were a hit, standing room only. Am hoping all the gender conferences offer Sephora classes! 💄 Yours, Monica

    Another Excursion

    Hey Christy, thanks for the Kudos.😊 But no need to be envious, actually I'm as much envious of you, too! LOL Our situations are different and I think you're doing great with yours. I thought early on our paths to transition and our situations were different, but I always tended to think we'd arrive there together, and I still do think that. We both have a ways to go, and it makes me happy you're a part of mine and I yours. No, not really passing with flying colors, just barely without "colors", if you know what I mean. Just trying to keep a low profile, but getting super comfortable as Jess going out and about. Will take a lot more practice, little steps at a time. Was still very nervous but not nearly how much I would have been before, or could have been without confidence. Couldn't believe I actually kept talking! I'm not gullible; that cashier probably sensed but was so gracious she didn't let on and if I was more comfortable, we would have liked to talk more. See, there are a lot of good people out there. Next time, I'll be even more confident and less afraid. Gonna keep working on that; another thing to look forward to haha😍 Yes! Florida. 😎 Wanted to get down again before First Event, but will have to wait until after, like quickly soon after. Helping my son move into an apartment, so when that's done...Watch out World! Will PM you when I know for sure. Would love to attend one of your groups with you, too, if that's okay! Jessica

    That’s awesome Jess ! I really need to get better at it so thanks for the nudge.
  24. Dear Blackangel, My mother used to say, "churches are hospitals for sinners, not museums for saints." Hope everyone here finds a supportive community. Your friend, Monica

    Sephora Classes for Confidence

    Thanks, you all! Found a Sephora near the Convention Center for First Event. Have another thing to do during the down time from seminars. Will check it out and let you know. 😊 BTW, just a tip, anyone who wears glasses trying to apply make-up, think about contacts. I don't have real bad eyesight, but can't read without glasses and just got contacts because I was having a hard time applying. Well, I love them, just a little more expensive than glasses, but not much and, well, I don't like to brag, (OK, I do?) but I think I'm really getting hard to beat with applying my own make-up now. Now that I can see better!👀 Sephora here I come😍. Maybe could use a job before I open my own salon, too? Haha😄 Jess, always looking for something to look forward to!

    Sephora Classes for Confidence

    Yes, it's nice that Sephora says that they offer such classes but, oddly enough, I'm not aware of them in Seattle, which is just so weird. I just sent them another email about this. Anyway, Sephora is wonderful and they have excellent products. Also note that you can return anything for a full credit within 60 days of purchase with no hassle. Sign up for their VIB program in store or on line and then you don't have to keep track of your receipt either. Sephora's products are pricey so this is a huge thing especially as you're trying new stuff out.

    NICE! Too bad this company dosen't have stores near me
  29. Hi everyone, I just wanted to let everyone know, the cosmetics company Sephora does make-up classes for transgender women!!! They have started a program called Classes for Confidence. They are offering 2 types of classes, Brave Beauty in the Face of Cancer and, Bold Beauty for the Transgender Community. The Bold Beauty class is a free, 90 minute class (although I do plan to purchased a few of their products). I visited my local store to ask about the class and the staff was very friendly and supportive. They have not scheduled a class yet, but took my email and phone number to let me know when they have. They also free mini classes, and other longer classes and makeovers at a cost. I am really looking forward to hearing from them and will probably go for some mini classes soon!!! I'll let everyone know how it goes.....XXXOOO
