It's been nearly a year since I started this blog and nearly six months since my last update. A lot has been going on.

First, I quit my job to work full-time as a free-lance writer. It's worked out well so far although I've blown through my savings quicker than I thought and my former employer has been reluctant to part with some money they owe me. So, financially it's been tight, but well worth it. I work on my own and my employer has promised the money next month. It's actually quite a hefty sum - enough to pay for a full "transition" if that's what I want to do. Still not sure.

I am in "clothes" buying mode and I'm interested to see the effect hormones would have on me. Anyone else out there in their late 40s when starting on hormones? I'd like to transition, but not if I'll look like a joke. Not really sure about the kid implications either, but I think that's a topic for therapy.

Hmmmm....what else...I think I need to develop an idea of fashion-sense. I'm not very good at it, but I am looking at clothes others are wearing to see how they put together outfits. I guess part of the problem is that I like printed earth-tone tops. I guess they'd go well with jeans but we'll see. I've been shopping on craigslist so maybe I'll find something there.

That's about it for now...feel free to drop me a comment or two...especially about the age issue...


  1. Glad to know you are doing well, girl.

    There are many girls who transitioned in their 40s. I suggest checking out a few of the forums such as "Susan's".

    That aside, sometimes it's something you need to do bad enough that 'passing' isn't necessarily the most important thing. Just keep that in mind.

  2. Thanks Debra, you always know the right thing to say. Hope things are going well for you...
