hi Gals, thought Id start a fresh thread ...who's here? We need each other!
Im 49, partnered for the last 27 with my angel Nancy, live in SF. Im a self employed photographer. I snowboard for fun.
Im dying to connect with other lesbians to support each other while we navigate this road of hideously pink ribbons.
For my butches/tomboys/bois - did anyone have any gender issues pop up ? Ive been having an internal convo about how I wanted to be a boy as a child- I was really upset when I began developing wee breasts, and actually thought I had breast cancer. I grew up to be your basic B cup butch, sports bra and be there. Im reconstructing the breast I lost for my mental health, but there is a part of me that is just plain angry at my female-ness. Uterine issues plagued my 20s-30s, now the breasts are gunning for me. I dont want to change my gender physically, at the same time I feel the parts of me that are distinctly female have brought me such grief medically. Anyone else have a similar experience?
Im 30 days out from my Mx, 15 days out from my heart breaking "scar revision" - Dr term for removing my nipple / areola that didnt survive. Having post op depression/crying. Feeling isolated.
