Nope, this isn't a poll about Cher's greatest hits. Nor one about whether or not you like to go back in time and begin transitioning earlier. Nope, this is about the 800 pound gorilla in the room; old age. Let's face it, we have the same 'getting older' issue that every human has to face. But being transgender can put a new twist on things.

The question is then, would a Group here at TGH, dedicated to discussing topics that the retired, or soon to be retired, older transgender members would like to see, be of benefit? If so, please vote yes, and with enough interest, we will gladly make it so..... Hugs to all, creaking bones, or not.....

Well, since Maybe isn’t a choice…

Anyway, it all depends upon where my mind is at any point.

Hi Michelle,
Well, even though everyone says I don't look it, and even though my cardiologist tells me, that by transitioning, I've added another 15 years to my life, the odometer of this old girl is two decades past the half century mark.
I haven't retired and I'm already collecting some of my pension, but my current full time job is truly the most enjoyable job I've ever had! I work, as a woman, in an environment that is made up of at least 85% women. It is a government office building and I am the site supervisor for security. I get to interact with all these women on a daily basis, they have all accepted and affirmed me, and view me as the woman I've always known I was.
I truly believe that, for me, this amazingly wonderful situation has been like an elixir of youth, it has turned back the hands of time!
But, we can all share a few of our aches and pains that do, inevitably, show up from time to time. So...
Yes! We need a forum dealing with geriatric transwomen, because we know, in the recesses of our minds, that we're all going to get there eventually.

Hugs girls, big hugs!

Ms. Lauren M

This is a wonderful idea. Often I look at younger transitioned women and wish. I wish I knew "then" what I know now so possibly I could have avoided all the encumbrances that are mine today.

But I didn't and here I am. I accept that I am a woman at my core level, but I also accept that I have numerous relationships with people I love that count on me being a man for them.

To live authentically is so profoundly a part of me, but so is living realistically for others. To part of. group that understands those burdens of possible late transition or at this point non-transition womanhood would be so helpful.

Thank you for the idea and the possibility.

Kindly,

Charlene

But don't forget, the hope for this Group is to provide information and resources that us 'older gals and guys' need to know in order to grow and thrive in our golden years. Days past are just that, days past. Yesterday is in the books, and we need the knowledge for today and the future. Hugs

I've been doing a little noodling around the internet, looking for graphics and images to use with the Group if it gets created..... And I've started to have an eyeball out for info and topics to start populating it with. So, if anyone has any suggestions... Hint, hint.....
