Cassandra's surgeries

So, I've never done this sort of thing before. I usually just deal with everything myself and dont ask for help because I know there are people that deserve it so much more than me. But I guess Its worth a try, right? 
I could tell you my life story, and I want to, but I'm going to keep everything to a minimum so I dont take up much of your time. 

When I was 6, we my brother and i were taken from our parents because of something our father had done. We ended up back with our mother, but after our father had committed suicide by asphyxiation. Everything after that was hard. We struggled with money because, as a CNA, my mother wasnt bringing in much, so there were days that she had to go without, just so my brother and I didnt. We moved around a lot, but the biggest move was from my hometown to 30 minutes away.  It may not seem like a long distance, but for me, family means everything, so not being able to just see them everyday was hard. We moved because my mother was with this guy that had 2 daughters that lived with him half the time. He had grounded me to my room for the whole year that my mother was with him, without my mother saying anything. No books. No electronics. No extracurricular activities. But I did have my red/golden lab! Her name is winnie, like winnie the pooh.  Anyway, when they broke up, we moved to a different house in the same city.  Once I had turned 16, I got a job to help pay for bills, so school had slipped away from me. I started to get depressed from everything that's happened since I was young, and because of everything that was going on at the time. I started cutting and attempting suicide because I couldnt find a way to be happy. Until I met my best friend. Shes my whole world. She helps me, even when I am too stubborn to help myself. After I met her, I realized It was okay to be who I want to be, and I came out as trans. My mother and my best friend and her family were okay with it, but I lost a lot of family and friends because they didnt agree with it. I respect their decision to leave from my life. Not everyone is for this "lifestyle" and its okay. I have never held that against anyone. Differences make us who we are and so do life experiences. It all just depends on what you believe in. 
I get depressed over not having my surgeries, and I try everyday to achieve my goal of getting them, though, to no avail. There is one reason I need my surgeries, and that is to be happy.
