As many of you know, I have been transitioning for coming on four years now. For those of you that didn't know, a little while back, thanks to a Women's Studies class I took in college, I come upon an explanation for why I have always felt "off" and not quite sure of myself...my whole life. I learned that some people are born in bodies that don't mesh with the way their brain perceives them to be. Transgender. A word I had only heard in derogatory ways, but one that truly applied to me in every sense of its true definition. All of a sudden it clicked and I was amazed that I had never heard of this, you know, in a way other than that used as an ill-fitted insult. How could I not have, if it so clearly defined how I felt? Then I did one of the biggest, most meaningful things that I have ever done for myself. I actively sought out a supportive community, started going to a gender therapist to work through things, and then I started my physical transition - all despite the extreme lack of support I had from those closest to me.
So here I am, four years into a transition from female to male thanks to the aid of bio-identical hormones and feeling more and more comfortable in my skin with every added day. Still, there is something that remains a constant wall between my current horrible, anxiety ridden days and what I assume will be absolute comfort - my chest. I will need to have what is called "top surgery" to achieve a more masculine contoured chest and to do that I need to save a pretty big chunk of change. That's where you come in! My goal is to have it done within this 2015 year and I have been saving up myself but I'm going to need some help too with meeting the monetary goal. No amount is too small when it all comes down to it. Any possible help financially or otherwise will be incredibly, whole-heartedly appreciated.
