My final visit to my “magician” has come and gone. As I previously wrote about here in Cyrsti’s Condo, I am going to have to find another hair dresser to go to. Sadly my regular stylist retired. I found out during my final appointment she is suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome. Which causes pain in the hands.
As we said our goodbyes, I almost teared up (damn hormones). As you may recall, she, my stylist, is the one with a transgender son. As always, she worked her magic with my hair and I went upon my way.
My hair grows relatively fast, so I will be on the outlook for another stylist.
Now, onto another topic. fellow Blogger Mandy Sherman wrote in with a comment about my trip to the auto repair shop:
“Good for you about going to the shop en femme. My mechanics know me, so doing that wouldn’t work well…although I go in capris, a blouse, and flats when the weather is warm. Such fun!”
Thanks Mandy! I thought it was a good time to explain a couple things about me for any of you new comers to the blog. First and foremost, I am a full time transgender woman. Using hormone replacement therapy very much blocked any return to being a male I ever had. These days, I would have to find a way to bind my breasts and tie my hair back to minimally even look male at all. The best I can hope for is to be androgynous…if I ever tried.
I am fortunate though, because I never run into anyone I knew before my Mtf gender transition. They have to accept me for what I am.
I like to say, I am a little slow…but not stupid. I knew totally when I entered into the feminine world, all of it wouldn’t be a great time. That is why I heard so many times from my cis women friends when I transitioned, welcome to our world.
As I sum this up, I need to say, I would never give up anything I have earned crossing the gender divide.
To quote another familiar phrase, “What a long, strange trip it has been.” And let me add, a wonderful one too!
