These days though, I feel as if I am losing ground in the world, but I don't know if it is all bad. One problem I know I have is with projecting a feminine voice. When I keep it low and soft, I have less vocal problems-I think. Plus,if you toss men out of the conversation, generics do have a tendency in my world to over talk each other. For the longest time, I did try to jump in, but now I just wait for the conversation to come to me.
I suppose it sounds like a clique, but my HRT years have taken the edge off my macho feelings and laying back I suppose makes me more "mysterious" - rather than a cynical pain in the rear.
Looking back though at the fateful day I started to transition, my expectations of how I would be able to communicate with the world, never felt like this!
