Hey Guys! I’m Riddle, a non-binary trans person from North Carolina, US.
If you know me, it’s not new to you that I have never felt comfortable in my body - and in the past few years, it has only gotten worse. My mental health is suffering, I’m ashamed and don’t want to leave the house because I don’t want anyone to see me. I can’t look in a mirror or have pictures taken, because when I see myself, the body I see doesn’t match who I truly am. It’s impossible for me to keep ignoring the way that I feel - so I finally made the decision to undergo top surgery.
I am a low-income student, don’t have any family in my life anymore, and the surgery will not be covered by the insurance I am under. I will pay as much as possible myself - but even though I never want to burden anyone, I don’t think that I will be able to reach my goal without asking for help this time. Every help would be endlessly appreciated. I want to go outside without having to think about how to hide best. I want to be comfortable with myself. Even if you personally can not donate, please consider sharing - each time it’s being shared, it will get me a little closer to reaching my goal!
I will have my surgery with Dr. Mosser in San Francisco. The goal is to cover the medical expenses, including pre- and post-op appointments, the surgeons and hospital fees, the anaesthesia fee and the pathology fee.
Thank you so much for your help - this will change my life for the better.
