The Final Step towards Wholeness

I need your help.

I just want my medical transition to be done with. I was on the verge of compromising my ethics, but at the last minute, decided against it. I felt that desperate. I’ve been saving for three years and I’m almost at my final goal post. Almost…

In summer 2018 I started a go fund me, and I am so grateful to everyone that donated. Thank you. How to say this… I got embarrassed. I wasn’t getting donations as quickly as another friend of mine and it made me feel - less than. So, I lowered what I was asking for dramatically and just told every one I was done.

The struggle was real but, little by little, I squirrelled away what I needed. I’m almost there. For the past two years I have been hustling and in recent weeks, because I got vulnerable with some colleagues I’ve received support I never imagined receiving. I have been encouraged to ask my communities for further help.

I hope you don’t mind, but I don’t want to discuss my body in public. As a writer and a journalist, I feel like I have shared so much of myself. Is it ok for me to ask for help but not discuss my body? I hope so. Who knows what’s coming in the future, but what I’m hoping is that whatever does come, I will be able to face it feeling whole and womanly. Done.

Any little helps and your shares mean the world. Thank you loves x
