    I Popped In For A Visit Tonight After Work.......

    .......because last night, I couldn't reach her on the home phone and couldn't get through on her mobile. I left a message on Live chat that I was worried about not being able to get in touch with her.  She came online this morning and assured me that she was fine, that Al...

    Hmmmmmm........

    ......I am reminded, a little uncomfortably, I might add, of the story I wrote a while back in the "I am estranged from family members" group, where I expressed my satisfaction that my brother had made a stand for me at last when he went to visit my mother a short time...

    I Knew It...

    My oldest, child, on paper at birth was female. At the age of 13 he realized that he was a boy. Everyone was shocked. Except me. I didn't consciously know that my oldest was a boy, but I was not at all surprised when I found out. I always said when I was pregnant that i was...

    I Never Thought That I Would Be Mother Of The Bride

     Well, I went out to the kitchen with the best intentions in the world of baking some biscuits to take with me on the round of calls I am planning to make this afternoon.  I made a start, truly I did but I was thinking about Miranda and Al so much that I couldn't...

    Hi  I am Connie and I just joined this group referred by an internet person on a mom board.  I have a 13 yr old son who I have been taking to therapy for the past 6 months.  The therapist says this is not a phase.  The therapist wants him to start blockers and...

    I Think About It A Lot..........

     ........and I used to get very depressed about it. When Miranda first told me that she had started taking the transforming hormones, it was probably about three months until I was able to tell anyone at work.  My Team Leader found me alone out in the tea room one day...

    My 14 year old announced last week

    that she has not felt like anything but herself not a gender but when she does it is weeks of feeling like she is male. I can't even begin to understand it but want to support her, she announced that she would like to be a male. I have already spoke with the school and they...

    I Don't Feel Like A Very Good "mother" Sometimes.....t

    In fact, I am hardly one at all sometimes. When Miranda and Al had their engagement party about 4 weeks ago, it was the housemate's mother who brought the mower round and mowed the grass for them.  It was this same woman, not me, who took MIranda shopping and bought her...
