I haven’t written a post for about a week but I have been a very busy girl. Today, after an hour’s walk to the nearby Women’s Club and back, I went to my Anti-Coagulation clinic and saw my regular nurse who I missed telling last month about my recent “change of life.” She noticed something “different” about me and when I explained what was going on she was excited for me and we talked about all those things that we women do to make ourselves beautiful. When I spoke about my Laser treatments she told me that she has been using an electrologist for years and gave me her name. She also told me how she had her eyebrows tatooed, something I had never considered, and now she doesn’t have to mess with them anymore. She also complimented me on my face and I felt on top of the world.
I just love “girl talk.” Just wait until I’m fully female and I can talk about sex.
After meeting with my pharmacist and discussing my planned estrogen therapy and other possible surgeries I headed for a facial “sculpting” consultation with a Nurse-practitioner/aesthetician at the place where I’m having my Laser hair removal treatments done to find out that I had gotten the time wrong for our appointment, so the receptionist re-scheduled me for later in the afternoon. When she complimented me on my face, my heart took wings.
Later on at the appointment she photographed my face and we discussed the types of procedures I might do after any face lifts I may decide to have done by the surgeon to further feminize my face. We also talked about a non-invasive alternative to liposuction called “Cool sculpting” whereby the fat is frozen and then allowed to be absorbed by the body. Knowing all of this will be useful when I consult with the cosmetic surgeon tomorrow.
As a man, I never realized why we ladies seem to be focused on our presentation to the world, why we seem to be obsessed with making ourselves beautiful. The men seem to think that we do it for them. We know that is only partially true, that we really do it for ourselves.
Sometimes it takes a lot of work just to be an everyday Goddess but I’m not ashamed to say “I’m worth it!”
