I'll just be honest - I need help. I wrote the entire lawsuit myself. Pro Se. I'm struggling to pay my medical bills. .. I'm struggling to pay most of my bills. All of this while experiencing daily pain, nausea, and extreme fatigue - holding me back from working regularly. I need to save up to have excision surgery. It's probably my only hope at a semi normal life. I'm suing a major hospital & medical center for discrimination, after egg retrieval complications. I was just trying to have children and save my body from any further endometriosis/adenymoyosis pain. I went to the emergency room with severe pain which continued after my egg retrieval, and the emergency ob/gyn on staff was transphobic. Never referring to me by my gender, but instead "it, they, she" - I was having severe complications and ovarian torsion with ovaries the size of grapefruits. The pain was the worst I've ever felt. He said he "refused to aid in my transition"...yet I was there as a patient with an extensive history of endometriosis, and a hysterectomy already booked and approved by my health insurance for medically necessary reasons due to endo. Also, further complications after egg retrieval should have led the surgeon to performing a hysterectomy or finding someone who can. He performed an inappropriate and unnecessary intravaginal ultrasound, inviting his entire staff into the room to watch as he did it. I had no clothes on and no blankets. I was naked with a room of people laughing and looking disgusted at me. I felt disgusted of myself. As I cried and screamed in pain. As I could hear my girlfriend crying and screaming to "please stop it! you are hurting him!" It hurts to remember. But I am not allowed to forget. I built up the courage to come forward with what happened to me. With the hopes that doctors think twice about acting this way in the future, with the hopes that more people will have the courage to come forward. This isn't about me, this is about the thousands of trans people who have varying degrees of discriminatory actions ensued upon them EVERYDAY... Any additional funds raised I want to turn into a non-profit or charity. I appreciate your support. Thank you for reading this. We are showing them there is an army of us.
