I think it finally hit that I may be able to transition with HRT in a couple months. I felt my heart flutter at the thought, I can hardly wait for that time to come. I feel like I need to cry from happiness, I don't know if I ever truly cried happy tears before. are the sensations supposed to feel so similar to sad crying, but with a smile?
It's just like that indeed and when you start hrt you are going to have to ge used to it girl... those hormones make you cry a thousand tears, but most of them are happy.. the other ones come when you watch a sad movie and such....

I actually do look forward to it. There was a time in High School when I couldn't feel at all. I never want to go back to that. I haven't been able to properly cry for a while now, but I can still feel sad, happy, angry, etc. Like my body just doesn't let me cry. I look forward to getting that fixed.

I don't know. They haven't really messed with my mood that I see.

Re: Small Victories

I'm sure it depends on the person and how your emotions run normally, but I'm ready for all the happy crying!

I slept with my foam breastforms on last night(with a bra) and felt like I slept better than usual. I felt so happy when I woke up and saw them under my pj's I almost forgot they were just breastforms and not real.

I thought about sleeping in panties, but I ended up taking them off, as usual. I can't sleep with anything on below the belt...

I haven't tried with mine. but I think that's partly because I bought a set that is a slightly thinner cut than what I'm used to. next time I might go with a more "regular" cut set of panties.

Kasey's packages came! I actually thought I looked like my mom with the one wig she sent...

Well Brooke got hers. I'll see what I have left for ties. Not sure what size in men's shirts and pants you are though.

I also have an unopened sam stp/packer, a couple of old binders in size small, and some 29/32 slacks, and some small shirts I don't need if we're giving stuff away.

I'll just say, the name kinda threw me off at first. Didn't feel right to me to buy boyshorts when looking for feminine underwear at the time.

That's understandable. But imo, boyshorts are by far the sexiest underwear on a woman.

I trust we do tend to identify with one of our parents and in some ways borrow parts that identity to further shape up our selves ... Not identically mind you, but it is there, in more than one way

When I came across pictures of mom from waaay back before she met my dad, and compared them with the mental images I that had created in my mind of how I should look like post transition, I allowed myself to notice that the resemblance was so striking my jaw hit the floor. Sure there were some differences, but .... yeah .

A whole can of "Freud" can be opened on that topic

For shirts I am an XL, those binders won't fit over my damned large chest XD the packer would be GREAT though.
