I need help on planning for my transition (TG stuff)
« on: October 23, 2011, 11:43:42 AM »

I know this is probably not the best forum for this since mine problem is very specific, but I guess the real questions I have here with regard to planning for my transition is mostly monetary in nature. In this case, I really need help figuring out my expenses, how to manage them, and what I can do to build up some savings for the transition (therapy, hormones, etc). So, any information, advice, websites, and the like would be appreciated.

Step 1) Sell your house and/or anything else you can
Step 2) Take every dollar you have and invest it in the following two ticket symbols
NUGT
AGQ
Step 3) Wait for the US dollar to crash (somewhere between 6 and 24 months)
Step 4) Collect enough $$$ to pay for your operation, plus hookers of whatever sex you prefer, and enough blow to satisfy Scarface

I thought you changed your mind? 

I donno, Brede.  Maybe save your money to move to a place where theres more like-minded people and become a part of the community out in Berkeley, or wherever there's more of a support network.  I think it would be especially hard where you're located, but maybe thats not a factor at all.

Personally I think I'd be more happy in a place where theres lots of ya's.  Don't "they" get 'groupy' and provide jobs among themselves, networking, helping defer some of the drug costs by petitioning the drugmakers, and all that shit?

The entire Bay Area is like that.
But then again, so is Madison, WI

I second Brasky's suggestion. I have several friends who are not traditional sexually (covers so many things - furries, bisexual, etc.) and they have all been so much happier finding communities where they can be with people who are supportive or feel the same way. I would think that the same thing would apply in your case, maybe even more so, because of the transition you're considering.

Whatever happened to Joanna anyway? She was level headed as hell and probably would have the most helpful things to say.

I think she took up being a Somali pirate and is out on the high seas, living the life of adventure, far away from interenet access.

Just guessing here, of course.

Joanna would have been a great help for this thread.

Anklebiter, have you thought of doing it in steps?

A tracheal shave, removal of the Adams apple, is supposed to be outpatient, and you could do the procedures on an ad hoc basis progressing from simpler to more complex procedures.

Don't matter if you were guessing. If R3 still lurks around here and read that, he probably came in his pants.

Are you sure "Joanna" wasn't R3's alter ego?

Joanna was down right mean to R3 and a Gold Amp. One hell of a sock puppet if true.
