As far as the weekend went, we had another Cincinnati Witches Ball committee meeting to go to plus the ever exciting weekly trip to the grocery store. Both went without a hitch. I switched up my outfits by wearing my paisley soft leggings I love so much with my long red sweater and boots of course.Β 

As I mentioned in my last post, the two “C”s (Comfort and Confidence) mean so much when combating my gender dysphoria. Again, as I mentioned, I didn’t realize how deep my dysphoria ran.  Perhaps it all stems from a few highly unsuccessful  feminine trips in the public eye years ago when I first began to explore a new scary but exciting world. Basically, this was back in the 80’s when times were very different.  Most of my problems were self created to be truthful.

Basically, I made the mistake of dressing for men and not women. Specifically, I dressed too trashy and drew too much unneeded attention.  I was stubborn though and figured since I didn’t get to go out much, I needed to go all out and get the most bang for the buck. All of it resulted into too many mini skirts and high heeled days. 

The only time I was really successful was when I dressed professionally and happened to blend with other cis women dressed the same way. 

Which leads me full circle to the night I went out to purposely be a woman and blend in with other women getting off work from a local upscale mall. I was scared to death as I made my way to the upscale bar and ordered a cocktail. The first lesson I learned was, I lived. The second lesson was (after I relaxed) was I lived and actually felt very good doing it. The problem was I felt so good I knew I would experience more problems going back to my male life. 

Little did I know, years later I would still be experiencing much of the same feelings. 

Enough of me though. Thanks again to all of you for visiting!

  1. Thank you dear πŸ˜€ and your welcome dear πŸ˜€.

    Over the years I’ve talked to hundreds of transgender people all over the world most loved it when they could get out as them selves but a few found it felt to weird to be out in public like that. We’re all different in how it affects us, some it has no effect on others spend their hole life in the closet. I’m happy for you that your able to get out and be your self, I think the biggest problem we face is self love and confidence ones you master that everything else is down hill ( so to speak ).
