Trying to stay afloat.

Hi everyone, my (new) name is Sarah. I'm transgender. It's taken many, many years of struggle and really bad mental health to come to terms with this, but now, I'm ready to step into my new life.

Unfortunately the wait-list for the NHS gender services is over 5 years, so I've been using private services to gain access to the treatments and services I need. These are expensive, and require me to travel far from home which only adds to the costs

COVID-19 has put my finances into real disorder, with the collapse of my own small business. As such, I find myself living out of my overdraft, struggling for food and rent whilst trying to find work in a time no one is hiring as well as covering the costs of medication and endocrinologist appointments. This, on top of the stress of being publicly transgender, is really causing struggle.

I'm just looking for a little help covering some costs. Finding a job is stressful enough without having to panic every time I need to buy food or make an appointment to see a medical professional.
