When I was young (around the age of 6 or so), I had always found myself questioning "What would it be like if I were a girl?" and I found myself saying "I wish I were a girl." I would ask for girly toys, such as an Easy-Bake Oven (as a singular example), and I would be told "You can't have that, those are girl toys, you're a boy." So, the suppression of my true self began. Fast forward to 2013, after years and years of build-up (I was in my early 20s at this time), and I finally let all of those suppressed thoughts free, and I realized that my true self was not the person I was, but rather a female version of me. Once I had realized that and accepted it, I found that I enjoyed my life much more than when I had to view myself as a male.
Now, why am I on GoFundMe asking for assistance with this procedure? I am here because I am currently unemployed, with few prospects currently, I have no insurance, and my family is unsupportive of my transition. I have been told by many members of my family that I am on my own for this. In order for me to achieve my goal to finally be myself and to be happy with myself, I am currently needing to ask for assistance.
What will the funds go toward? -
These funds will go fully toward paying the procedure fees, hotel expenses, and pre-operation and post-operation expenses. Anything left over will be held onto for post-operative emergencies or procedures. After everything is done and over with, the remaining funds will go toward another person looking to get their surgery.
