    This thread did not come as a shock to me, I always thought his name implied it.

    Oh, force-feeding a patient.

    How does one even discover that about themselves? What is the basis of comparison by which one might determine that their gender identity is wrong?

    I'm probably not the best person to answer this, but I dated a trans woman for a couple months and I asked her to explain it

    she told me to imagine that as I went through puberty, that I started growing breasts and gaining an hourglass figure, and everybody is there looking at you getting it

    that's how she felt, except the other way around

    One thing I hated was when my dog died. I came home from class one day and couldn't find him anywhere in the house or yard, then discovered his body at the bottom of the pool. He had been having some health troubles lately, and must have fallen in and been unable to get himself back out. I had to be the one to go in and retrieve the body so we could take it to a place where they could dispose of it properly. That entire afternoon was one of the most miserable days of my life.

    My sincere sympathies. A couple years back around this time of year, I had to make the decision to put one of our cats down because he had lymphoma. Had to happen three days after Christmas and the same day as my wife's birthday. Little guy died in my arms.
    All previous joking aside, that's easily one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make.

    I don't personally know but it doesn't seem like the kind of thing you can explain in the space of an Internet Forum Post

    To be completely honest, there is a pretty small handful of people here whom I could probably correctly identify as gay, straight, bi, transsexual, transvestite, or transgendered. And I wouldn't be absolutely 100% sure either. It's not something I really concern myself with all that much.

    Jeez I was originally going to say the summer I spent traveling around the US with this marching band-esque group and actually relying on myself to budget my time/effort/money (sort of) completely on my own.

    Now thinking though, it'd probably be at my father's mother's funeral. I was there and I was of course sad and everything but my parents had an experience they told me about the night she died where they said some light came up from her as she passed away and then drifted upwards through the wall/ceiling. It was a really comforting story that they didn't tell each other until the next day so they each had experienced it but what really got me was when my mother's parents got to the funeral.

    I just looked over at them and that's probably when I really noticed and thought about the fact that they actually are getting old and frail and might not be around all that long and then I just broke down. Then it got "worse" when my grandma came up to me and started telling me that everything's going to be ok and she was in a better place. I loved my dad's mom and although I wasn't super close to her I felt like she would be ok with God and everything but I could never interrupt my grandma to tell her and my grandpa that the reason I was crying so much was because I was so worried about them.

    It was just a mix of feeling sad that I know they won't be around a lot longer and them comforting me at my other grandma's funeral when I was mainly worried about them and it was sort of a scene in front of my dad's side of the family. That was a rough one.

    With that aside, grats to Whippy! That's awesome!

    yeah no me either, I sort of glaze over the details of gender, location and real names and just tend to be like, damn, that was a good post. Or, shit that is a cool av




    I am fortunate that I haven't had to go through any tough times in my life yet. I have been putting them off like a procrastinator. Maybe one day I will get away to doing the hard things.

    Nnnah.



    edit: wait no, probably dealing with my mother. Yeah. Going through that, before I moved out, was fucking rough. Even being back for the holidays I need to be alone for a bit because I can't handle them

    this is roughly similar to an experience I had lately!

    except it was just me in my room thinkin' 'bout things and even though my parents aren't like ancient, they are getting up in years and I started to realize that one day they just won't be there

    and i kind of lost it a bit

    it is a rough thought

    I suppose the hardest thing for me was just getting out of bed every day and trying to function like a human being, in the month or so leading up to my nervous breakdown back in '07.

    why are people talking about me in this thread
    who cares what i did when i was 18 that was almost 4 years ago

    the hardest thing i ever had to do in my life was nothing. my life is easy and i am constantly afflicted with malaise

    ha ha, no, not really, but i don't really want to go posting on the internet about what the hardest thing i ever had to do was. it was intensely personal and is the reason i can barely talk to my mother.

    Congrats whip! I know plenty of openly gay people, don't think I've met an open transexual yet though.


    Um, the hardest thing in my life? Recovering from annorexia about two years back (dudes get it too). Admitted to hospital and found out my heartbeat was around 30bpm. I thought it was a good thing at the time, if that's any indicator of how messed up my head was.

    my dad knows about my sexual orientation, because he caught me flirtin' with an old boyfriend and then confronted me about it

    buuut he was pretty cool about it. he went through a brief period of feeling sorta hurt and betrayed that when i was going through shit about it in high school i never told him or came to him for advice or anything. he took it basically as an insult that i thought he was a homophobe or something

    he got over it though

    my brothers don't know, although i'm sure one of my brothers does know and just never talks about it to maintain plausible deniability in case it comes up with my mom

    because my mom doesn't know and can't know, because she'd not take it well and lose massive respect for me and basically it would be awful

    totally sucks

    on the upside

    since i am engaged to a woman, i pretty much will never be in a position of absolutely needing to inform those around me about my sexual orientation

    i can allow people to simply assume i'm heterosexual

    which is sorta infuriating and i wish didn't make my life so much easier

    but it does

    so :?

    The best part was explaining to the counselor what an Incredible Hulk was and her reaction of despair & revolution that I would drink them with such vigor.

    yeah

    it's sorta needless

    why have that confrontation and stupidity until you absolutely need to

    and since i am in a monogamous, long-term relationship with a woman, that "need to" point is basically never?

    so that works out, i guess

    in the sense that i will have to begrudgingly tolerate my mother's open monosexism for the rest of my life whenever the topic comes up
