I hink I have joined the ranks of old women now. My abdominal problems are the ones, typical for older women. My labia hurts all the time, but nothing can be seen that would make it hurt. The ob/gyn thinks it is because of tissue dryness, and prescribed Premarin to be applied to vulva and vagina daily, just like many other older women need to do.
I also developed some kind of cyst inside my urethra, close to the bladder, which hinders my urine flow (another older woman problem), which might required to be surgically removed, to prevent urine back-up into the kidneys. At least that is easier with my newer, way shorter urethra.

I lost interest in men again, most of them in my right age bracket can't do anything manly anyway anymore, and I stopped dilating. My vaginal canal will be atrophying over time, and I was told that I might keep a 2 1/2 to 3 " deep canal that does not require muh maintenance, but is good enough for some battery friend action.

All in all, the quality of my life is so much better with having the right parts in the right locations. I still don't understand why I did not do all of this many years earlier?

Linde, I feel for you, not many of us get what we dream of, but it is dissappointing. But you have found your true self, and once you get that cyst removed, you should be able to have a comfortable life. Most of us late transitioners wonder why we didn't do it years ago, but in reality, it just wasn't to be. Celebrate the life you have!

Hugs,

Allie

Dear Linde

I completely agree with Allie's post above and I truly hope your cyst is either dissolved or surgically removed soon and believe you'll feel so much better afterwards.

Finally in response to your rhetorical question, NO - your are most certainly NOT an old woman. You are a friend and helper to many.

Hugs

Hi Linde! I think I'd rather think of things, not in terms of old, but in terms of how well we adjust to what life throws at us. Crappy things happen to us throughout life. They surveyed a group of happy people who were in there 90's and up a few years ago. The number one reason given for how they could be happy was the ability to adjust. Many had seen everyone from their early life pass before they did, and yet they were able to find happiness. It seems to me you have made some really big adjustments. Sure, it is natural to lament the things we lost, or could never get a chance to do, but there are other things to focus on that bring us happiness. It is a choice, isn't it? The most unhappy among us are those who get stuck in the mourning and don't open ourselves up to new possibilities. Sorry, I'm a little philosophical lately. I'm mourning at the moment. I decided to give it its due but then move on.
Sorry about the medical issues. Sorry if this comes off as a lecture. I think I'm talking to myself as well as addressing your post.

I am just back from a 5 week long stay in Minnesota. I lived with a very long time friend of mine (we are friends for more than 30 years, and she knew me as a man, and now as a woman). She just turned 62 years old, and is single, and all her friends are single, too. We had a glorious female time together, and she taught me some ladies stuff, I did not know.

The medical issues that were discovered, will be addressed by the best docs in the world, I am not really concerned about this. What surprises me, is that I lost interest in men again, probably caused by some less enchanting dating experiences? I will be my old lesbian self again, and enjoy the help of battery operated friends if I feel like it.
My biggest goal is to lose about 15 or so pounds of bacon, and I lost already one bra band width, and pretty soon I should be ready to have the nice bikini body I always dreamed of.
Bikinis are a major female dressing item here in southern Florida.
My bra size went down from 40 D to 38 C, and I hope I can get down to 36. Many more cute looking bras are available in the smaller sizes.

Anyway, I feel great now that the burden to find a man is taken away from me (which means, no more dilation), and I can enjoy the company of females way more again.
I have been told again that I have a very well developed and contoured vulva, and my biggest problem is to avoid showing a camel toe (I don't like that condition, because it does not feel good to me).
