Electrolysis for Jennifer

Hi, I'm Jennifer, 33, a transgender woman from southern Illinois. I need electrolysis badly. I've known this for a long time and have been trying to save for it for four years, but after just barely scraping by, I'm still at zero. I need to have it done as soon as possible. I've always felt a sense of urgency about it due to the negative ramifications for my mental health, my skin, and many other aspects of my life, of going without it. But there are some additional, complicating medical factors in my situation that make the present moment a particularly good time to strike.

These additional factors also make it more important that I go to the electrolygist with the best overall care package, to help avoid potential risks. That's why I would like to purchase The Premier, a 23-hour, large volume hair removal package from Precision Hair Removal in Chicago. You can read all about it here.  I have rounded up a bit to cover some of the recommended add-ons, any unexpected fees, hotel, travel, and fundraising expenses. The Premier will cover the first round (and hopefully some of round two) to get me started, but the process will have to be repeated three or four more times. Any remaining funds will therefore be used to purchase additional hours for round two.

Between the medical, financial, psychological, practical, and personal aspects of explaining who I am, my situation, and my need, I could probably write a book. It's like there's this complex relationship between my struggles with my facial hair, the dysphoria it causes me, and nearly every other area of my life, that seems difficult for others to really grasp. It's hard to express sometimes just how thoroughly it affects my life and my ability to function and make the most of my potential. It's stressful to talk about sometimes. I may go into greater detail about these different, interrelated factors of my life and my situation here eventually.
