      Wonderful Gen! A step forward in being YOU. You brought out your courage, found out it was easy and have now encouraged dozens of others. Each event now becomes easier, you will always have butterflies before you do something new but if you remember your attitude when you started your stroll and the wonderful feelings when you completed it you will conquer every goal.

      Many have commented on the importance of posting our stories here. There are two valuable reasons. First to celebrate our successes (Wow! I did it!) and second to encourage others (You can do it!)

      The subject of being careful is also important. I take a daily walk of at least two miles everyday, usually in the evening. Doesn’t sound like much but for an old lady with arthritis, bad left knee, questionable hips and using a cane I am pretty pleased with it. My ultimate goal is four miles. Anyway, while out walking the other evening a young woman stopped me for a conversation. She had seen me before and wanted to talk, she was concerned about my walking alone in our neighborhood. She totally accepted me as a woman (woo hoo!) until she gave me a hug. Then she realized I was a man and became very concerned because I could have problems with bad people. I assured her it was alright, this neighborhood was actually fairly safe. We have a Catholic church, convent, school, county government center and two senior centers, all well lit. I have not experienced any problems, I am always very aware of my surroundings, and the cane is a great defensive weapon. We continued with a lovely chat and as we said our goodbyes she said she will be watching for me from now on. The points are, choose your outing areas carefully and become familiar with people along the way. They will watch out for you.

      That’s great to hear Gen!!  Getting to that point is a great feeling, right?  It’s almost an epiphany when we realize that what strangers think

      Just Doesn’t Matter in the big scheme of things. ❤

      Thanks for posting, Gen. it came at right time. You have made my decision a lot easier.

      I had planned on going en femme to my therapist visit. I hardly have any feminine clothes so it’s going to be shorts and a top. I don’t own a wig yet so hair will be drab. I don’t care. It will be a big step that has to start somewhere. Thanks again for your post, it really reinforced my decision!

      love and hugs Bobbisue Jones

          Gen, you definitely paid it forward for me. The hardest part involved my age, I will be 77 in two months so The extra encouragement really helped.

          i hope to pay it forward if I get the chance.

      When you have one of those days (dgaf), it makes it a little easier later when you’re not having one of those days (“wait a minute, I nailed this before, I can do it again & maybe go a little farther”)
      Think I told ya you got this nailed hon…so happy for you right now, way to go Girlfriend!!

      Thanks, Gen. this is precisely where I am now. I’m having a house built and am really looking forward to that completely new fresh start. And I really want that courage to just be me. To hang out on the front or back porch dressed how I please, or to feel the rush and joy and freedom of walking the neighborhood in a skirt or dress.

      Good Morning Gen, Way to Go Gurl!!!!  Congrats.  I bet you feel a bunch of weight has come off your shoulders.

      These confidence boosting steps start to build on each other and pretty soon you’ll be heading into stores en femme and not thinking twice about it.  Take your time and move at your own pace.  And if you get a few stares or get called “sir”, don’t take it hard.  I normally get called “ma’am” at the grocery store but there are a few times I get called “sir”, and it kind of throws me for a loop, I’m disappointed but I let is slide off my back without worry.

      Have a lovely weekend, All the Best, Hugs, Krista.

      Hello Genevieve, Good for you to go out & be confident in your CD. I think you have the right idea about other people, weather they like you or not in CD mode does not matter. But always be careful about where you go or who you talk to, not everbody is that tolerant & can be abusive, just be aware. Having said that, go out & enjoy your new confidence & enjoy be a CD lady. love, Helenmarie

        Hi Helenmarie…

        Yes I’m aware that there are some folks who are not tollerant of us… and yes, we must be very careful. We must choose our locale wisely.
