My new life as a transexual

Hair dye and pie

Today was one the the worst days in recent memory. We had our mediation with our former landlord. She is a bitch from hell. I can honestly say that we had prepared ourselves very well for this. However, she pulled out a ton of dirty tricks. Honesty and sincerity did not pay this time. But I could leave the table knowing we were right and she was wrong. We didn’t get what we deserved but we gave her a fight. At least all this is over and we can get on with our lives.

I have felt pretty awful today. It took a while before my stomach felt like taking food. I did have a nice lunch with my wife afterwards. We tried a new sandwich place nearby and the weather was nice enough to eat outside. She has been even more upset than me. I think she blames herself that we didn’t do better. It’s not her fault and I have been telling her all day.

This experience has brought us closer than we have been for a while. She even let me give her a hug in the middle of Target tonight Since I started to look less like her husband it’s been nearly impossible to even hold her hand in public. It’s a small step but one in the right direction.

Today was not a complete waste. I got a text from the girl I work closely with and the jerk who sits next to me gave his notice. He has been a source of stress and harassment since I came out. In fact I know several people have files HR complaints against him in the past few years. My coworker also let me know that I have been put back on her team full time. The last six months I have been dragged here and there. I was the girl who they counted on to pick up the slack and and help out other teams. Then I just became the one they dumped everything on. if someone wasn’t pulling their weight they weren’t told to get going; they just gave me the work because management knew it would get done. After a while you can only do so much. I know that my being trans makes me a target. I wanted to show everyone that I am not hiding behind my transsexuality. Being trans will never be an excuse to slack off.

I got another tidbit of good news today. My friend Corrine has met a girl who likes her. Rinn needs this. She has been so down recently for a number of reasons. I love Rinn, she reminds me so much of myself. We are two of a kind. However, her potential girlfriend does not know yet that Rinn is trans. She is going to tell this girl tomorrow. Corrine will be in my prayers tonight. If all goes well I will get to meet this girl too 🙂

Well, it’s midnight and I have a bath cap in my head. I finally got around to getting rid of my gray. I’m back to jet black again, hurray. I am also finishing off a piece of lemon meringue pie. Well there goes the gray and my waistline. Comfort food and vanity. Now I am off to rinse my hair and hit the pillow.

Thank you to everyone who supported us and sent their best wishes. It means a lot to my wife and I. We were able to avoid a full blown lawsuit and we did come out of this with a settlement. A weight has been lifted off our shoulders but healing may take a bit longer.

  1. I’m glad that the ordeal is over for you. I have been through several landlord/real estate disputes and have usually come out on the losing end. It can be expensive and stressful. It’s best when it is finally over, you count up your losses and move on.

    Food and beauty are the best ways to forget about a tough day. Enjoy and sleep well my friend.

    Hugs,

    Becky
