Hey, my name is Michelle I am fundraising for my top surgery.
I am Trans Non-binary and my pronouns are he/his.
I have for sure known that I’m trans since 2020 but I first came out to someone in 2021. Since 2022 I try to tell everyone but it is really hard. Most people just do not accept it and keep on using the wrong pronouns. Including my family which I am not totally outed to because I am scared since the ones that do know just ignore it and keep on calling me a women. Honestly I always knew that I am trans because I got so uncomfortable with terms like „women“, „girl“, „miss“ I just did not know the right term for my uncomfort.
The thing that is the hardest to handle for me is seeing and feeling my chest everyday. I have always hated it. I am wearing a binder most of the time or my boyfriend tapes my chest, which is both very unhealthy, uncomfortable and doesn’t work for me since I have a rather large chest wich still shows with a binder etc..
I am thinking about getting top surgery constantly and can not wait until I have a flat chest!
I am looking for support here because in my current job situation I would need years to gain this amount of money and my family obviously says I should not make such a big deal out of it and just live with my chest.
I concluded that I would need about 6000€ since I live in Germany and I want to go to the plastmed clinic in Düsseldorf. This is close to where I live and they will not ask for a certificate from a psychologist since that would be really hard to experience for me.
the surgery itself will be around 4900€ plus the anesthesia for about 1100€ also I need 50€ for the first appointment. And compression west for 155€ and the rest is wound care, pain killers and a train ticket.
Thank you so much for reading my story and helping me out. I hope so much this works out.
