    Doing the ordinary things as a transwoman

    I am loving be a transwoman! Out and accepted at work! I took the car for its 10000 mile check up! They never lost a beat and greeted me as they had greeted Harry! Today, I went for an eye appointment! I have a minor cataract but only bears watching at this point! Ordered new glasses-feminine glasses! They led me right to the "women's frames"! The two ladies working there were just so nice helping me decide! I chose 4, then eliminated 2, and decided against the round "John Lennon" style in favor of the more feminine style! Pics will be forthcoming!
    Just living life as me!

    Thank you, Rachel! This is a good day! There are days of depression but I try to just breeze thru them! Mostly I have good days!
    Thank you, Devi! I just felt I had to write something for the ladies that are close to where I am at and let them know it isn't always depressing!

    Lana,
    It's always good to hear how normal the RW can become once you've accepted your identity .

    I realised sometime ago that you may only get a reaction if you go looking for one , most of my double takes have been from people I knew in male mode , they recognise the voice but what they see doesn't match up . I call it the " Goldfish Syndrome " their mouths open and close but no sound comes out . The great thing is after almost three years I haven't had a single bad reaction , even from a recent meeting with my son .

    I do agree even in the current situation there are uplifting moments to be had .

    Yes, Teresa, you must accept who you are and be confident enough to just be you! No problems anywhere!

    Lana that's all we can ask for is to be treated as who we are both inside and out. Hoping all is going well with you.

    It may of course be a bit disturbing to sense that one is really not so firmly anchored to the gender one was born into.

    Lana Mae,

    I've had a couple of those days recently where the magnitude and irreversible nature of the changes I've made begins to weigh heavily on me. As I start to feel that pressing in on me the best thing to do seems to be get my makeup on, pick out something to wear and smile in the mirror as I head out the door to do something routine and even boring. So far it seems to help in each case.
    Sarah
    Being transgender isn't a lifestyle choice. How you deal with it is.

    There is definitely a therapeutic value to getting out into the real world. I still am somewhat surprised by how positive the reception usually is from everyday people.

    Easy come, easy go;
    Easy left me long ago...

    Sarah, may going out that door always work for you!
    Kim, it always amazes me that I have so little problem being out here in NC!
