Looking!

Tonight has been a weird sort of night and I’ve had one woman looking at me intently. What do you mean Mikki, looking? She was not looking at me but looking in the area of my groin. Tonight, I’ve been for a night out in Leeds and it’s not somewhere I go on a regular […]

Out Local-ish

Last night I went out local and surprisingly I had a great night. I’d been in Manchester all day and was going to stay and go round the village but because it was a cold day or the new COVID BS regulations put people off everywhere was quite quiet and at 6pm I headed back […]

My own mental Happiness

It makes me laugh sometimes that some of my so caled friends/acquaintances try to to use me to quash or to appease their own mental happiness.

Cosmetic Surgery #1

Okay hands up, I admit it. I’ve been and had a few cosmetic surgery procedures recently. Last weekend I went and had Botox and lip fillers at a clinic in deepest Cheshire. For a long time I’ve cursed my thin lips and last weekend I went and had my top lip plumped up with fillers […]

Problems getting my prescription fulfilled

Over the past year, one of the things I've struggled with has been the problems getting my prescription fulfilled, despite taking my prescription to the same Pharmacy every time. However, on presenting my last prescription these problems snowballed. On every occasion I've had problems getting my prescription fulfilled and each time I have presented my [...]

Stop calling groups of people, Guys

Will staff at attractions, hotels, and restaurants stop calling groups of customers, "Guys" I'm out with a group of female friends and the maitre d' at the restaurant we're visiting calls us all "Guys". We look at him and ask him if he needs to go to Specsavers. He then does it again! "Can I [...]

On October 3rd I was proud to take part in a protest in Manchester. The People Assembly March against Austerity was a march against Tory cuts to public services, welfare provisions, job cuts, and wages. What a day, the volume of people there was amazing. I don’t even want to hazard a guess but it […]

As the transgender community is in the media spotlight at the moment, Oct 2021, I wanted to discuss the media portrayal of Transgender people and I'm going to discuss the difference between transgender celebrities versus how it treats regular transgender people and how we are perceived in the media. First, let's look at the celebs, [...]

I just cant wait for the NHS

I cant wait for the NHS, I just can't! The timescales for Trans care are not just ridiculous, they're preposterous!! How can the service waiting list go from 18 months, pre Covid to 48 months post-Covid? This makes no sense! I'm already struggling like crazy dealing with my anxiety, then let's throw in all the [...]

I am a little different, a poem by Mikki, age 50 and 11 months

I'm a little different, it's clear for all to see. I'm a little different, I just want to be me. I'm a little different, but I'm happy deep inside. I'm a little different, not sorry, I won't hide. I'm a little different, most folk, care not one jot. I'm a little different, my friends, they [...]
