Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Since I'm still blocked on the two stories I'm currently writing, I'd like to re-post this old story of mine here. It was the first fiction story I tried to write. I've gone over it and corrected a lot of things and generally cleaned it up. I hope you'll enjoy it. It's a long one, but I didn't want to push other, newer stories down the page by posting it in parts.

Halloween 2000

"We love you and if this is part of you, then we have to accept it. We don’t necessarily approve of it, but you are our friend/brother/son and we will always care." This, to me, was a revelation and, to not have to hide anymore was the most wonderful feeling in the world!

Happy Holidays!!

At this time of year, we take time to be with the ones we love. Top Shelf, and it's predeseser(sp?), Big Closet have always seemed to be more friendly, more willing to help those in need, and just a nicer place to visit and read, post stories and just relax.

Suited For Danger - Book 2 - Chapter 5

For cripes sake! As if I didn't have enough other shit to worry about, now I gotta deal with guys hitting on me? Understand, I didn't blame the guy for doing that. Actually, I should have expected it, looking the way I did. I just still wasn't used to looking like that, and he caught me on a bad day.

My Thanks to all my friends, fans, and readers. From Catherine Linda Michel

I know this isn't, exactly, a story, but I wanted it to be seen by as many as possible, and a blog entry just doesn't get as much attention as a posting on the main page. My apologies if I've overstepped any bounds.

Things went VERY well with my Mom!!!

This afternoon, I went to my Mother's to give her a signed copy of my book. (Headlights Girl) Despite my sisters disapproval, Mom LOVED her gift, LOVED the pic of me, ( http://files.tgsa.net/Pict0015.JPG ) hugged me, and told me that she loves me, no matter what. Of course, she'd rather have me stay as her son, but she's perfectly willing to accept me as her daughter.

Last night, I called my Mother to tell her that my book had finally arrived and that I would be bringing her a copy, as she had insisted I do, when initially told that I'd even HAVE a book.

Suited For Danger - Book 2 - Chapter 4

        I was crying. I could no longer speak. All I could do was cry my heart out over the loss of my life, my dreams, my friend, everything. All the intrigue, all the danger, all the running, and fighting, and everything else from the last few weeks just came rushing in on me all at once, and all I could do was cry.
        “What the hell can I do, Jerry?” I tried to continue through my tears. “I'm so tired of all this. I just wanna go back and be me again!

Author: 

So. Yesterday I spent about 6 hours on a rickety, rusting, ready-for-the-junkyard, bus, so I could make my appointment time in Buffalo New York, at the V.A. Hospital. No real problems since I slept most of the way there, although the trip back could be a book in and of itself. *giggle*

Updating My First Endocrinologist Visit

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

Since my visit, I have found a group called: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TSVets/

They are all TS Service or ex-service members who have either transitioned, are planning on it, or are starting on the path.

There is a lot of info there, but as with any forum, you have to hunt a bit for it. You also HAVE to be either IN the service, or have BEEN in the service to join. This is only my second day on the forum there, but I have already found some good information that is going to help me get what I need from the V.A.

A First Visit To An Endocrinologist

Yesterday, Wednesday, I had my first visit with an endo. She was VERY understanding and helpful, and I ended up with patches instead of pills for my hormone treatments and, for the first time, progesterone, as well. Additionally, I made serious inquiries about an orchiectomy. I was told that the V.A doesn't "do that", but there might be a way around that.

This was at the V.A. hospital in Buffalo, New York, and I have to say that I was treated at ALL times, with respect and understanding, as well as compassion.

A Day at Work, "Dressed"

"You're enjoying this, aren't you?" It wasn't so much a question as it was a statement. I think, at that moment, Bobbie realized that this was more than just a job related thing for me. I was a bit unsure about how I should answer her so I just said, "Let's go do this and, after it's over, you and I can talk. Okay?"

First Kiss

This is a true story. It happened to me many years ago in Germany while I was in the Military. The events are as they happened and the places described exist as I have described them. Only the names have been changed to protect anyone who still needs protection.
