  1. I originally planned to start full time no earlier than a year on HRT. I work remotely so hiding things from my company was easy but after going all out to make sure they would not notice when they had me fly up for the christmas party I realized I never wanted to do that again even if I had to find another job so I kind of jumped the gun on the plan lol. Luckily things went well and I didn't get fired for it.
  2. Glad to see people doing well! I've mostly lurked this thread since Bun first posted it, honestly it was an enormous help to me in finding myself. I finally accepted who I am in late March last year but there were people I knew IRL that I wasn't ready to come out to who knew this handle and I was paranoid. I've been on HRT for ~11 months now and went full time living as a woman near the beginning of this year but had forgotten about this thread for a bit. I want to thank Bun for starting this thread years ago and everyone else who's participated. Without it I think I would have been in denial even longer and it's bad enough I kept myself in denial till I was 30 already. <3
  3. Sorry, that sounds rough. I wonder if a body pillow might help any for sleeping? From what I've gathered actual hip bone geometry won't change past a certain age but rotation often still occurs since the ligaments are affected. If both hips hurt it seems to me rotation would be a more likely cause than something you did in your sleep to injure them.
  4. I don't think that's bad advice but speaking from experience if I had tried to count carbs and other things as well as calories when I was starting on reducing my calorie intake I would have found it overwhelming and probably said to hell with all of it. For me at least there's a lot to be said for keeping it simple, I generally try not to load up on carbs like crazy but as long as I'm doing good on calories I'm not too worried about it. I've kept up a 1.5lb/week average loss for 6 months now with just calorie counting, trying to eat more vegetables as a general rule, and trying to take a walk (at least 10 min or so) every day (I don't have an active job or very active hobbies). I have found that cooking more often does make it a lot easier to hit my calorie target (crock pots are an amazing tool for any lazy cooks like me).
  5. I did the same thing but was thinking I'd wait till Bun posted then post it as a response. Should have figured someone here would post it before then.
  6. I'm so sorry. If you haven't already seen it the ACLU is jumping on this and they are looking for service members to get in touch with them. I wish there was more I could do, this is beyond unacceptable.
  7. Those days happen, the important thing is to try and get back on track the next day. I used to beat myself up about doing that then go "screw it" and end up messing up 3-4 days in a row. Since I've started letting myself slide for a bad day and focusing on doing well the next one instead it's helped a lot. I do recommend logging everything once you start logging though. I've found if I skip logging some things or logging for a day it turns into a habit of not logging pretty quickly, that could just be me though.
  8. Glad it went well! I'd recommend MyFitnessPal for the tracking. It's free and there's phone apps too. I've been using it for food/calorie tracking and it's been a big help with losing weight. Some features are paid but the free features have been fine for me.
  9. Glad to see things are going better for you both! That sounds like sublingual administration. I found a page discussing that method for administering estrogen with references to studies here, figured someone might find it interesting.
  10. Glad you're doing well, hope you heal up quickly! In the meantime here are some bunny pictures to help you feel better.
  11. I'd like to read those reviews, where should I look for them?
  12. Yikes! I paid $30 or so shipped a few years back but mine is an older version. Didn't realize they'd gone up that much in price, love mine though.
  13. Tons of good resources here on the forums but don't forget about the articles section either. Lots of good stuff in there! (MaxL_1023's Strategy series comes to mind, the first one is here and the rest are posted under his user.)
  14. If you can find a set of headphones that you like and are comfortable for you then you could add an Antlion ModMic to them for headset use, would give you more options to find something that's comfortable. I use a ModMic on a set of AKG K7xx headphones for gaming, best "headset" I've ever had.
  15. I tried it some time ago with 3x 1080p monitors. Side monitors had some fisheye but overall I had it looking pretty good sitting still. At the time I had a core i7 920 (no OC then) and 2x GTX 260 core 216 cards in SLI, that proved insufficient to run the setup at any decent framerate so I gave up on spanning the game. Going off memory here but it wasn't just stretching what you would get on a single screen, there was more peripheral vision.
  16. I'm a bad lurker, just got caught up on the last ~20 pages of the thread. Bun, you need to check your GoFundMe, it's saying there's something going on that needs your attention and not allowing donations.
  17. You know, you really shouldn't... wait I have no leg to stand on here, I'm completely jealous.
  18. I know I'm very late for this but based on what you posted earlier for songs you might also like these to sing along with Bun (sorry, can't help it, I love symphonic metal, especially with female lead singers). Nemesea - Caught In The Middle Delain - April Rain
  19. Try the original Gundam, Gurren Lagann, Ruroni Kenshin (some tropes but legitimately good IMO). Solono, if I might trouble you for a moment I would love to hear your opinion on two shows: Hellsing (original or OVA, please specify) and Gurren Lagann.
  20. My god man you are some kind of saint. I've seen some shit and many drunk & stupid friends but nothing approaching that level.
  21. Well I've been on the road for the past week and once again drunk and in a hotel, I'm ashamed to admit catching up on this thread has caused me to shed tears for the first time in years... Bun, I'm so glad to see that you're out now and doing ok but for anyone who is considering that dark path that was considered damn it talk to someone. There are people who care about you out there, talk to someone. I've been to that point myself back in college and honestly, there is no good reason I can give for why someone in my position should resort to thinking about that but it can happen. I firmly believe there is no such thing as a worthless person, everyone is worth something and everyone has a reason to live whether they realize it or not. If I didn't believe that I myself wouldn't be alive today Please, anyone seriously considering this, seek help, if someone you know is going through something like that, do what Signy did and seek the help, just don't ignore everything and pretend it will get better on its own.
  22. Since I'd very much like to see what you recommend let's try another tack. Is there any anime currently available for streaming on Crunchyroll (that will at least support the show some where piracy will not) that you consider good?
  23. Also 6'4", can confirm. It's so rare to find a woman my height or taller but I find it very attractive when they're close to me in height. Edit: completely messed up the multiquote, screw it. Bun for what it's worth I always thought you were a woman from your posts and from the time you streamed with Junkers. Glad to see you're doing well, as far as expecting problems like you had with that guy... well, I think you're both right and wrong there. Sometimes that will probably happen yes, but it's not something you should have to expect or deal with and I think in time it won't be. Learning is a slow process and learning to accept things can be even slower but I think our society is making progress. 6-8 years ago my own opinion would have been drastically different and far less accepting, I'm sure there's still plenty of other things I have wrong that I'll learn better over time. The world has enough pain, everyone should be able to be happy with themselves and denying that would be inhumane. Alesia, I wish you the best of luck too, just be careful who you find for a relationship. I fully agree with RutgerS post that getting into one will not fix everything by itself and you shouldn't allow anyone to take advantage of you. You deserve to be treated with respect, everyone does.
