It’s okay, Rain. You’re not alone. I don’t like it either. ^_^

And what a fitting name for the page I’m posting today...

Today, I saw my endo, and we talked a lot about SRS (sexual reassignment surgery). And, well, I have her blessing. That makes two therapists and a doctor writing letters of approval PLUS the insurance to cover it, so I can set off on the final step of transition. The surgeon whom I'm looking at is apparently a popular choice though (not surprising, considering every post-op individual I know locally has gone through her), and according to my endo, is booked for at least the next six months. That's... actually, that's fine. I may be covered, but there are consultations, copays, hospital fees, travel costs, and perhaps hotel costs to keep in mind too. So, I've actually got some serious saving to do either way. But maybe, hopefully, I can attain what I need in that time. We'll see. ^_^

In other news, this is fricking awesome!

Congratulations! I'm a little envious, I am only just about to start hormones, and I have no idea if my insurance will cover the eventual surgery, plus the name change, ugh I wish it didn't take so much hard work just to be myself.

Thank you. ^_^

It IS a process, but just don't ever give up, and you'll get yourself where you want to be. ^_^

Thank you ^_^

Congrats, Jocelyn! Is the surgeon you're looking at using the traditional method or the newer Suporn method? Just curious!
Jocelyn 1st Oct 2013, 9:00 PM edit delete reply
@Karen Lynn

I... am not actually sure. I'm pretty sure it's a newer method though.

Also, thank you! ^_^
Karen Lynn 1st Oct 2013, 9:21 PM edit delete reply
Ok. Look into it if you can. It retains a particular gland that allows for natural lubrication, and seems to have an average depth of 6-6.5 inches. Also, completely hairless. :D

Yes, I've been doing more research on the methods than I have on HRT because I'm hopeful of this happening to me one day.
Jocelyn 1st Oct 2013, 9:28 PM edit delete reply
@Karen Lynn

Oh yes. That is it. The newer method, then.

The surgeon I'm looking at seems to have a good track record to. Every single post op I've discussed this with (plus me endo), went to her and speak VERY highly of her. So I think things sound promising with her. ^_^
Karen Lynn 1st Oct 2013, 9:31 PM edit delete reply
Now I want to know who she is and where she's located. This could prove useful to me in the future. :3
Jocelyn 1st Oct 2013, 9:40 PM edit delete reply
@Karen Lynn

Her name is Christine McGinn. Trans woman herself, and apparently, very skilled at what she does. She works in Pennsylvania, so it's a bit of a drive for me (like three and a half hours, I think), but I could get there pretty easily from where I am.

Check her out yourself. ^_^
Karen Lynn 1st Oct 2013, 9:49 PM edit delete reply
Thank you! Looks like she uses the older penile inversion method from the information on her site. I will be putting her on my list, especially since the MtF surgeon that used to perform the operation in my area has since retired.

If interested, check out Dr. Suporn. Wonder if other surgeons in the states can adopt his method...

She's not too far. Just shy of 1,000 miles from me.

I've been to the the town Dr McGinn's practice is in! It's lovely, if you get time to look around.

Come to think of it, there was a building flying a rainbow flag last time I was there. I wonder if it was her office?

Yay for you! This is a great page by the way.

I'm very happy for you, Jocelyn! I've been looking at that same surgeon for doing an orchiectomy by the end of the year, but... I don't think I can afford it at all x_x And I had to forgo insurance just to be able to try to afford it, which is backwards... So I don't know when I'll get surgery at all T_T

I'm still glad that you're making so much progress though ^_^

Congratulations! I´m so happy for you! :) Let´s all cheer for her!

That's wonderful ^^
I will do a wealth spell for you soon :3 hopefully it'll help. Still new to spells ^^;
Well, at least that kind of spell XD

Anyways, may your future be merry and bright. Blessed be, jocelyn ^^
Karen Lynn 2nd Oct 2013, 3:12 PM edit delete reply
I'll take one of those spells, if you don't mind. :3

Congratulations on the surgery! Christine is great.

And in the same mall as her clinic there's a fantastic Chinese-Japanese restaurant. ^_^

I can't help but wonder if Ky could do well to see that therapist too. I'm also wondering what is up with Jessica and her SRS status at the moment.

McGinn is a great doctor, I hear a lot of positive about her, seeing as she's in my area.

@Karen Lynn & Jocelyn

I have cast the spell, and it's set. All you need to do for it to be active is for you to cast at least 7 pennies soaked in fresh rainwater into a body of flowing water. Any of you live near a river?
Karen Lynn 2nd Oct 2013, 9:08 PM edit delete reply
Good thing I can smell rain on the air. Should rain in the next two days here.

Then it's just a mile or two to the nearest river. :3

Congratulations on your surgery sweetie!

Also, I don't know Rain anymore either. ._.

Well, she's not the only girl who doesn't like coffee. I can't stand the stuff. :3
Karen Lynn 3rd Oct 2013, 1:58 AM edit delete reply
Is it just me, or does Jessica look really angry in all of the panels?
Kitsune kun 3rd Oct 2013, 3:13 AM edit delete reply
How can rain not like coffee?! Does she just like the smell? That's how my mom is.....
Anyways, COFFEE!!!

I make a heavily caramel macchiato ;3

Sorry, I meant to put "heavenly" ...stupid autocorrect
Jocelyn 3rd Oct 2013, 7:18 AM edit delete reply
@Kitsune kun

She's like me. I LOVE the smell of coffee. It's the taste of it I can't stand. I'm sucked in by that scent too like a freaking Siren, so I've tried many different kinds and flavors of coffees (my wife, incidentally, is a coffee fanatic, so I keep trying what she has). And they all smell great, but they taste just awful to me. XD
Karen Lynn 3rd Oct 2013, 11:16 AM edit delete reply
I'm the same way. I love the smell of coffee, but that's as far as it goes. I've yet to find a coffee I can tolerate the taste of. I have a can of Folgers around here that I like to open up once in a while just for the smell. Sometimes I brew up a small pot because again, smell.

I'm happy for you! That's seriously good news on your transition. Also, I'm with Rain as well. Smells good, tastes bad.

I freakin' LOVE coffee. I used to drink it as a grade school kid and all the adults around me used to say "Kid, it will stunt your growth" but my dad let me drink it anyway... with shitloads of sugar in it, then after I got all amped up on sugar and caffeine, he'd turn me over to my mother to deal with my hyperactivity. Ahhh, the memories. And it probably did stunt my growth because I was the shortest, skinniest effeminate sissy boy in my class from grade school until college when I was a short, skinny longhaired sissy boy with a girls-shaped ass who was always misgendered and ma'amed in public and when I hung out with my sister, everyone thought I was her little sister. Damn how I miss my youth, and wish I could go back and live it again with what I know now.

My advice to you kiddos today.... Carpe Diem! Don't end up like me.
