I could use some help paying off the top surgery I had in May 2017. To date my insurance company has reimbursed about 20% of the cost, instead of 70% as they quoted before surgery.  

- Yes I am working with a legal aid organization to sort this out
- No I did not budget for paying this much (oh past me you sweet summer child, assuming your insurance gave you the right information)

I also had to leave my corporate office job in November 2017, for multiple reasons including facing up to the fact I couldn't continue working for a company that delayed my medical care by excluding transgender services from their employee insurance plan. When I left, I knew I was taking a leap into economic insecurity, and I had to do it anyway. 

I'm working again, but for lower wages, and I'm not really getting anywhere on paying this off since interest has kicked in. 

Some other shit has happened as well. It's been a weird couple years. -Anyway- if you have some extra money lying around pls throw some my way! If you cannot afford to donate please do not; it's ok.
