Transgender on Dr. Oz

This is the best, most concise and unbiased show about MtF transition that I have seen to date on television - Thanks Dr. Oz! 

Here's the link to part one of the show: (from here you can get to the rest of it).  (Thanks Karin).

The video below is just the trailer.

Things and Stuff

Greetings Friends,

I haven't felt much like saying a lot lately but I am still out here. It has been far too long since I posted a personal update so I'll do that briefly now. My foot surgery a year and a half ago did not heal as well as expected but my recent orchiectomy went very well and I am feeling more like my self image says I should, the extra weight I have gained recently notwithstanding, I feel much happier about myself as my body has become noticeably more feminine since the removal of those little torture devices but I still have a ways to go before I can afford SRS, but even for that I have hope. 

(This Picture was taken at the San Diego Air & Space Museum in 
February when Ken and I had a nice getaway weekend).

I am looking forward to seeing my 2 sons whom I haven't seen in 10 years this April. This will be their first face to face meeting with me as Eva-Genevieve, I am excited and worried in equal measures because I don't know how they will react to me in person. They have seen pictures and we have talked many times since I transitioned but the real test of acceptance or rejection is at hand and I am hoping it will be a great reunion. 

Dealing with back pain from disintegrating disks in my lower back has kept me from being as active as I was a few years ago though I keep plugging away as best as I can - though in an attempt to avoid excessive pain I have not been walking nearly as much as I did a few years ago but today I managed to walk 11 miles. In spite of how feminine I am feeling lately I struggle with depression a bit more these days because of the limits the back pain (and severe headaches from the air pollution in this area) puts on things and this is why I haven't felt like saying too much lately, so rather than me doing the talking here (and on Facebook) I kind of let other people do it when the opportunity comes along. This "It Gets Better" video is another example of something worthwhile that I didn't have to type.

Hugs and Blessings,

Daughters - by Tara Stevens

My good friend Tara writes some very moving poems - here's her latest, 

Daughters - by Tara Stevens

Daughters of the sun
Children of the moon
Girls born as boys
Tortured in the womb

Spoke out against the angles
Dragged from the well of souls
To do the penance in this land
For crimes not of their own

Hated for being different
Stood out and left alone
Daughters of the sun
Fight to find a home

It's not the dresses or make up
That gets them through the day
For the daughters of the sun and the moon
Just wish to live each day

Fight against the law givers
Fools who run the land
Say we're freaks, who need no voice
And we should hide in the sand

In the morning I'll paint my nails
Lift my head up high
For I am a daughter of the sun and moon
One with transgender pride.
