  1. I haven't had the surgery but know bunches who have. The keyword is "slow"; just as with the rest of your transition- it's going to take time for everything to work out to it's best. Now the dark side of MTF SRS.You will almost certainly be able to have intercourse- very few can't. But about half will lose the physical sensitivity it takes to have an orgasm. How important is that to you? I know a few permanently unhappy people who needed that and lost it in their surgery Even the best surgeons can't predict this or do better in keeping that ability for you; too little is known about it still. If it's really important to your happiness you need to consider that you can live almost equally well without SRS and that could be your best option Me, I've never been very interested in sex- it doesn't do much for me- and I'd rather have a vagina regardless of whether I'd lose orgasms or not. YMMV so you need to be honest with yourself here more than with any other part of transition. You're going to be gambling on one coin-toss and living with whatever happens after that forever. If it goes well it's as good as life can get but either way you're still going to be around living with the results. Bettypooh
  2. We've put my Mom on her second 'nursing home'. Actually there's some blur here because while they are both similar, the new one is more 'assisted living' though they do also handle those needing a higher level of care in other buildings on the site. We'd thought the first one was good but in comparison it sucks. Not having insurance or money we had to find places who would accept her Social Security for payment and those are few plus they are usually rotten to the core from a patient's point of view. Openings are rare at the good places and you have to wait for them so initially you may not have much choice but don't give up- keep looking for better.;) Go there yourself and see what the residents seem like as well as noting as best you can whether you can smell urine or feces at the bed-ridden rooms. That will clue you in about diaper changes. Then ask specifically about it- is it "as needed" (may not be often enough) or scheduled to a time-frame consistent with the capacities of whatever diapers are used. Don't expect good diapers- ain't gonna happen unless you provide them. Even if those would last longer, if it's scheduled changes that will happen with them too. If due to an accident where I needed temporary assistance to recover and get back into life later I could stand being in a place like these. But I ain't going if it's forever. That's just my perspective on life and what it means to me and others like my Mom see it differently. Life is not all fun and games but you've got to have a minimum level of happiness for life to be worth living and I know what mine is. When you need good care and it doesn't happen, life can be an interminable misery and I don't wish that on anybody. Be happy an help the ones you love do the same. Bettypooh
  3. The big thing I see here is that you're being honest with yourself That matters a lot. When you push yourself or try to do what you're really not comfortable with it never goes well. And in really going 24/7 you'll learn whether or not you want that- not everyone does. It's a hassle sometimes but it's also the best thing I've ever done for myself and vyou may end yp the same way. Or if you decide otherwise that's OK too- you'll know that if you want to do it again you can It took me awhile to gain my confidence with my wearing discreetly but it happened and now it means almost nothing to me to crinkle or leak a little knowing that others may notice. And buying my pull-ups at the local dollar store is just like buying a loaf of bread- routine stuff. If there is a downside going 24/7 is that any excitement you may have had will fade in time and be replaced with an equal satisfaction in knowing that you are doing what you want to regardless of what the rest of the world may think about that. It becomes your routine, nothing special, and you finally forget about it until something else makes you think about it As long as you're honest with yourself you will make the right decisions for yourself and stay on the path which is best for you. That's your path, not anyone else's, and nobody has the right to judge you in that. So here's wishingyou the best in getting to where you want and need to go wherever that may end up being Bettypooh
  4. Yaaaay for you both When you have a dream this big and it actually happens there is nothing better in the world.. I can't express how happy I am to hear the great news. Just totally awesome! Bettypooh
  5. Not being highly 'endowed', tight panties did the trick for me. "Tucking" has (or used to have) a different meaning- it's the process of pushing one's testes back inside the body where they originated. Not everyone can manage this (I can't) but it's excellent for those who can. If you tuck then point your penis upward it's as close as you can get to the shape of a girl down there Bettypooh
  6. A very good overview overall But it's likely going to take more than 6 treatments and here's why: First is that they can only work on so much area in a given timespan. These sessions usually last an hour so there will be more to do when the clock runs out. Second is that hairs grow in cycles so from one follicle a new hair will emerge eventually until every root in that follicle has been treated, and there can be many roots hiding in there. Given the nature of this growth pattern it is not unusual to have hairs showing up ,months or years later. This is why it is not called "hair removal" but "hair reduction" by the pros. Pain levels in treatment will vary. What is being referred to here is what you feel when the hair is pulled out after it's treatment which is a different thing. You should not feel any pain when it's pulled, nor should there be much or any resistance in that. Some people can feel the hairs coming out and some don't, but pain or a pulling sensation here indicates an ineffective 'kill' and a need for more power, more time, a different method, or a different combination of these. As each person's skin varies (and in anyone it varies between places on the body) the operator has to find what to do by experimentation on every person for every area. There is no "one size fits all" approach here though a good operator will have a good idea where to start and get your optimum settings found quickly. One clue to look for is to see if they record your personal settings after the session. Good operators will; those lesser ones who think "one size fits all" will not. Absolutely true is that your results will depend almost entirely on the operator's skill. Finding a good operator isn't easy since they aren't going to reveal names of their past clients due to privacy concerns. But uf you can, who you want to speak with are clients who have had their treatments 'completed' at least a couple years before.I put 'completed' in brackets because in truth this is never a 100% complete process and even with the best operators it is normal to need a "touch up" treatment or two about a year later and perhaps again another year hence. This is because sometimes the root wasn't entirely killed but only had it's regrowth stunted giving a delayed re-emergence. What you shouldn't see is a lot of regrowing hairs after 'completion'- that is almost always the sign of a poor operator. My treatments stopped about 10 years ago and I never returned for a 'touch-up' treatment. I had my face done and then we worked downward. My beard was thick with above average hair density and hair thickness; my chest was the opposite. I have some regrowth in my face, perhaps1%-3%, but almost none on my chest. I had one of the best operators in this part of the world based on my personally knowing numerous case histories going back decades. It took over 200 treatments to get here but it was worth it. The pubic area has far fewer hairs so it won't take nearly as much to 'complete' but it's likely going to take you more than six no matter the method used. Mine was "Blend Thermolysis" which is slower, lasers cover more area faster. The difference will also set the schedule for treatments; I went once a week or more but laser can have longer in between. Don't fall prey to a "set price for everything" scheme- that means you'll either pay too much or the treatments aren't going to be customized for you like they need to be. And above all remember this is a commitment to all the area you want covered and to forever. If you truly want this you'll love it Bettypooh
  7. Please don't bash sellers or products in this forum. If you don't like something just click off and grab some fun elsewhere in our site Questions and bargaining are however encouraged here Bettypooh
  8. Clicking on their profile, I see the seller hasn't been on the site in almost a year. Just my guess that you'll not get a response Bettypooh
  9. Sorry you're going away but I understand the reasoning. My own choice of a career leaves me in a bunch of less tolerant folk, but as long as the full depth of me isn't known I can handle the rest and it won't have a long-lasting effect. Life is full of compromises which you must make in order to get things you want most and while it's not right that's how the world works. May your future go well and exceed your expectations- Godspeed on your journey. Bettypooh
  10. Generally, during surgery they will insert a catheter to collect any urine due to a need for the entire room to be as sterile as they can make it, so don';t be surprised if you wake up without a diaper on. They generally want you to be wearing only the hospital gown when entering surgery, it would be best that you ask about what they want you to do ahead of time Bettypooh
  11. It is something to be absolutely certain about before crossing the threshold into making body changes in any way other than dieting and exercise. HRT doesn't always go as planned and can have permanent consequences even when stopped. Though the risky things do not commonly happen, they are very significant when they do occur. Slow and careful is the way to go See the process as one of self-discovery with the end goal being maximum happiness throughout life however that needs to be achieved. With that mindset you life will be better no matter what else happens. Bettypooh
  12. I'd feel more fortunate if I didn't have to do the replacement work. I rent this house but I also do work for the owner, so it's going to be on me even though I won't have to buy the new one. It should be here sometime today so I'll be playing plumber tonight. I hate doing plumbing Bettypooh
  13. Acceptance of needing diapers isn't easy, but once you get past that hurdle and find a diapering solution that works you can regain your confidence and go on with life pretty much like before. I'm past any real worries or concerns about my wearing now. I know that there have to be numerous people who have noticed the thickness, outline, and noise but I don't care. It's much better than wearing visibly wet clothing and there's not anything else I can do about it. And there are far worse things which could have happened to me (and some still might) so I put my diapers into that perspective- not really a big thing other than their expense. While I'm nearly asexual, I'm also ill-equipped got 'vanilla' sex so I've learned to use alternatives to please my occasional partners; there is a way even if it requires extra effort on my part. I didn't ask for or want any of my problems but they're here and I'm going to handle them all because I have to if I am going to have much happiness myself I figure I'm worth the effort and you are too. Vent away when you need to- we understand because sometimes we need to do that too! Bettypooh
  14. The best solution is doing to be related to the amount of urine involved and the time between changes so use that as a starting point to choose by. NorthShore has the best pull-up style disposable diaper, but even they are not great protection. There are also boosters which can be used to extend wear-time with any diaper, and they can be fitted/removed with one hand. The best tape-on disposables can last as much as 8+ hours so perhaps your friend can arrange to use those when assistance is available. They can be put on with one hand but it's very tough to get a decent fit that way. Cloth is probably a better long-term option but it requires a separate diaper cover which might be a hassle here, but it could also prove to be the best solution. There's a higher initial cost and laundering to consider but in the long run they're at least as economical as disposables and perhaps cheaper. They do have the advantage of not relying on an order come in in on time so once you've for a stock of them that worry is gone. I'd do a trial with disposables first to determine both what capacity is needed and how well your friend can handle changes before jumping into cloth with it's expense. Once you get the details worked out the best solution becomes much more obvious. Bettypooh
  15. Being a "pro" procrastinator, I let the leaking water heater in my bathroom drip away until there was always a veritable lake in the floor I finally HAD to do something, so I remembered that one of my Craigslist diaper buys had included a bag of underpads which I didn't need but kept anyway. Hmmmmm........ So I used them to 'diaper' my bathroom And yes, I had to change my bathroom's diapers several times. I'll see about getting a new water heater today- darn thing is leakier than me and I don't like the competition Bettypooh
