Hi All, I got my top surgery approved covered through my insurance!! Yay! But I will be off work unpaid for 3-4 weeks recovering and we could really use the help financially. Any donation will help us out so much with paying bills during the time I will be healing. As many of you know and maybe some don’t, I’m non-binary. If you don’t know, that means that I don’t feel like a girl or a guy. I just feel like me. I’d felt sort of like what people call a tomboy growing up but that didn’t really sum it up for me. Usually tomboys actually feel like a girl, but I never really did. I didn’t know how to explain it, even to myself. It wasn’t until I went on a trip for school a couple years ago that I learned a lot of things about myself. I’ve since started using they/them/theirs pronouns and changed my name to a more gender neutral name and it has helped tremendously. I feel more comfortable, understood and supported. Being called she/her was and still is always unsettling and makes me feel sick. I also have felt completely uncomfortable with my breasts since I started getting them. They cause a lot of discomfort emotionally and also physically with my scoliosis. I have been binding my chest for 2 years now and it makes me feel a lot more comfortable for the short term because it give me a flat chest, but it’s not a long-term solution. Binding causes more problems with my scoliosis and hurts my ribs. Therefore, after over a year of research and careful thought, I’ve decided I’m going to have surgery to remove my breasts. I’m ready to take this step for myself! Having a flat chest makes me feel so comfortable. It’s a hard feeling to explain but it makes me feel the happiest I’ve been in my life. This surgery just makes that flatness and happiness permanent for me. I really appreciate the help to get me to my most comfortable body.
