Welcome in to the "Super Sunday" edition in the "Condo". If you are passionate about either team, I hope you win! Looking back a year, I know what I was up to during the big game-or down to. For some crazy reason I was offered the morning after the game for a colostomy. So I spent the evening not sampling wings and beer but drinking some brand of system "flushing" liquid and trying to make my toilet as comfortable as possible. Duh!
Section One.- The Week in Review. Bruce Jenner's refusal to come out of the closet comes to mind as one of the memorable moments of the week. It's Jenner's business to do as he/she pleases but why not do something positive with his transition. If he is not transitioning MtF, then his time with the Kardashians' certainly wore off on him. Check the latest picture of Bruce on the left. He seems to have a nice little set of HRT induced breasts working. The negative of course is Jenner sets himself and the transgender community up for ridicule. Coming out would give us another example of a guy who lived under the cover of an intensely male life such as former Navy Seal Kristin Beck. If you don't know, Jenner was once considered one of the top male athletes in the world as a decathlon competitor. The worst case scenario is having Dr. Phil, who struggles to even say transgender, speculate on your transition Bruce, on the Inside Edition television show. Really Bruce?
Section 2.- Breaking News: Patricia, a former Ohio Buckeye who now lives in California, was kind enough to send me this information from Planned Parenthood:
Planned Parenthood Mar Monte (California) is offering transgender hormone services at the following health center locations:
Fulton Street Health Center – Fresno
Mountain View Health Center – Mountain View
B Street Health Center – Sacramento
Westside Health Center – Santa Cruz
Our transgender hormone services include:
Transgender Female (MTF) Hormone Therapy including estrogen and spironolactone
Transgender Male (FTM) Hormone Therapy including testosterone
We may be able to start or continue hormone therapy and provide referrals for gender-qualified therapy and resources if needed.
If you are on hormone therapy, you can utilize the health center for ongoing care and monitoring.
In order to receive transgender services you need to be over 18 and capable of providing consent for services. We can provide services for younger patients in Santa Cruz with a parent or guardian’s permission. There are special consents for these services.
For more info, go here. Thanks Patricia, I have no idea if Planned Parenthood offers these services on a wider basis. Frankly, it's the first time I've even heard of them and I am impressed!
Well, it's about time to get another hot cup of coffee and the dog is happy the weather is warm and dry enough for a walk. Here's hoping you all have a great week! This should be a special one here in Cyrsti's Condo as we pass the one million hits mark! I wish I could give away a new car but it's not in the budget!
