After much personal debate, I've decided to finally come out publicly here as transgender. Those of you who know me on Facebook, please don't mention it publicly there, because J-boy's family doesn't know and I'd like them not to learn of it from Facebook.

Those people in my real life that I've told have mostly been extremely supportive (Mum just saying "It's about time, I've known since you were a toddler" was a huge relief). My co-workers at the market have all been fantastic, too. I realize not everyone on Mudcat will be supportive, based on the most recent thread about gender-neutral language, but whatever. It's a huge relief to finally be me publicly.

Well, "sink or swim" is when it's time for a life-line/raft/boat.

Someone in the water may need help. Helpers are coloured heroes in the press for jumping in after. But how much more courage does it require of the looker-on to admit being unable to help by himself and to go find other help?

What Rapparee said, except:

When the time comes:
Don't bother with the inheritance business if you don't care and are not required to. Do bother with a ceremony of departure, but it need not be one with a coffin and people you don't care about.


Whatever the year brings, make sure to share with those you feel near to.

Go to the funeral, if it happens. Stay in a motel, not with family. Be courteous and polite, but not intimate -- you left long ago. When asked why you're in a motel, reply "Because I didn't want to trouble anyone" (which is completely true). If someone brings up the past, pass it off with a kind word and keep your thoughts to yourself. Don't involve yourself with hate and despair.

"Do you know that in 1947 he called my mother a gross fat pig eating slops???"
"Really?"
"You didn't know that?"
"Why, no."   

Don't point out that whoever "he" was/is was three years old. Feign polite interest in a story you've heard a thousand times and quietly leave as soon as you can. Don't take sides -- they're all probably in the wrong.

As a daughter you might be in line for some inheritance. Pay for a decent lawyer and let the lawyer handle things, and you refer everything to the lawyer (that's why you're paying a lawyer). If asked why you politely say "I wanted to be certain everyone and everything was done right." Don't fight the will (if any) but don't fold up like a cheap chair, either. The lawyer's fees will be worth the lack of hassle you'll have, and I know about that.

What has happened is past. Don't let it carry into the future. If they never speak to you again, so be it, but they are probably aware of situation and may be trying to "make the most" of it in whatever way best suits them.

Sticking my neck out and asking for support feels, gosh,
humiliating somehow, but here goes.

Estrangement from my family of origin
has been a necessary compromise
after an upbringing complicated by abuse and trauma.

Last year one parent died.
This year the remaining parent is suicidal: at least making the threats.

There's a lot that I don't know because I am keeping my distance.
However this year turns out,
pressure is being brought to bear, and that will continue.
One reason for this is that there are legalities and estate planning
all mixed up in the oldest generation passing away.
A more obvious reason is that nobody lets go in this family of origin.
One grandparent of mine died thirty-five years ago
with lasting legal and financial consequences,
and thirty-five years later
some people have their minds firmly closed to the notion
that things might be different now.
You get the idea?

I seriously can't predict what's coming,
but I dread the worst. Thanks for listening.

I went to my massage therapist today and she asked what the red dots on my arms were.

An hour after the massage therapy I had an appointment with my dermatologist. He said, "Strep psoriasis" and ordered a corticosteroid cream, twice a day for fourteen days and call then if it's not any better.

Well, it's annoying. Still, it could be a lot worse. No, no itching or anything. Just dry skin and red dots.

Had good news yesterday when we saw Billy' s consultant he said his blood counts were excellent and he will see us again in 4 months, still on the trial so regular appointments continue. He also told us that the research into the chemotherapy that has been done in the USA shows that the results for patients like Billy can be very positive and they can be in remission for a long time, year 5 now so fingers crossed.I have said before that the NHS treatment in our local hospital has been incredible and I am so sad when they get a bad press, just takes one bad Apple!

Went into Colchester town for shopping and celebration lunch, it was pouring down with rain and as we went into one shop the marble floor was wet and I went flying and today I am in bed with a very painfull knee and stiff back and hip!! Lucky I didnt need to return to the hospital, nothing broken except my dignity??

I should be tackling the mountain of ironing but enjoying a lie down,cup of tea and good book.

Sending love to all the crew

I had a long conversation with Dean that bowled me over with his knowledge of receptors, dopamine and addiction. Mainly his insight rivals some of the most insightful folks here. Real gritty and tangible progress is being made without the blame games that plague our infantile Congress.

Internet Addiction is in most cases simply abuse (6.5 hours a day) but in cases where it alters sleep cycles it is a moderate addiction. It become a serious health hazard when withdraw from real life and depression occurs. As with any behavioral addiction there is little research and a large skeptical suspicion of its existence. The creators of the games or platforms are not going to take responsibility.

What is being thrown at the problem are anti-depressants. You can look at the increase in prescriptions in the UK but that is only anecdotal. The number of kids worldwide who are seriously depressed from an addiction to digital heroin may be as high as 30 million.

The emergent problem is a deliberate attempt to addict for profit and is only 9 years old. What will it be like in 15 or 20 years?

Physically the problem coincides with up to a 8% loss in connective white fiber tissue. It can be restored. Time can not.

The symptoms present in different ways in certain cultures, some hideous and some just sad.

The mystery in plain sight is solved. Dean has what 50 million other kids get in the world but recovery is possible. He has IGA specifically. I have been complicit in causing his depression and withdrawal from life. I have been giving him heroin for 10 years,
digital heroin.

Neurological resets take up to two months but to recover the 8% of lost white fiber connections beneath his brain's grey matter will take much longer, perhaps a lifetime.

Best wishes to all for a season of peace and love, no matter what you celebrate....or whether you celebrate at all.

Slightly anxious time here for two aging parents. Our younger son Doug The Canaussian who lives in Toronto, Canada, had a hand operation a couple of days ago. Some time ago he was diagnosed with a vascular tumour in his left hand which although it isn't cancerous behaves like cancer, so is treated as such. Chemotherapy didn't work so he went under the knife to remove several tumours, and also had reconstructive surgery including bone grafts. He no longer has a left index finger, it's gone. Apparently the surgery went well and doctors are pleased.

Seems he is one of only 50 cases known world-wide. We always knew our boys were special - but that's not how we wanted them to be unique!

Christmas eve is a good time to update the progress of Tiny Tim.
He has had some adventures like his 21 year old girlfriend and showing his face but still not going to school. A boarding school out of town is in the works where there are no laptops and freedom is earned by a point system. It drives mom to tears but the real world is a jungle he needs to learn to navigate. My proposition that children deserve intellectual freedom has failed. He is participating in Christmas customs which feeds hope a snack. Its like tiny Tim has gone from two canes to just one.

Hi,

It's Christmas Eve (here). A time for reflection, it seems, but I don't have any profound words of wisdom to share. I'm just grateful for you guys (f/m) turning things over for me sometimes, so I get to see the sides I can't see on my own.

I guess, this evening I'm a bit nostalgic for easier times. So, forgive me my reference to a sentimental ditty from some 75 years ago.
