Trans Veteran Needs Breast Augmentation

Hello, my name is Michael and I am a Disabled Transgender Veteran, I served my country from 2004-2014. And I have gender dysphoria extreme dysphoria over not having breasts, you might ask what dysphoria is well, for us with gender dysphoria we feel that our minds don’t match our bodies. And the feeling that your mind doesn’t match your body causes severe distress, anxiety and severe depression. We also get so intensely uncomfortable with ourselves that it can interfere with our normal lives. It’s an extreme hatred of parts of your body it is accompanied by me hardly getting out of bed, I’m always depressed, I don’t want to leave the house, and sometimes I think I might be better off dead why dead you might ask, Well I just want the pain to go away as I carry it with me every day and its wearing me down. I have tried to get loans, I have tried asking my family and friends, all this just to get judged and laughed at by them. Hell, I was even disowned by my parents. As the cost is 6,500.00 Yeah, I feel really crappy I can’t afford that. I can’t use the VA because the VA WILL NOT PROVIDE ANY TYPE GENDER CONFORMING SURGERY EVEN IF IT IS MEDICALLY NESSASARRY, why you might ask well it’s because the VA really don’t care about Veterans like myself. Even though this Surgery is a life-changing experience for many trans folks, not only positively affecting our self-confidence and body image, but also our ability to live freely and authentically when out in public, at the workplace, and at school. So, you see I am stuck. I wish there was some company, person, clinic, DR that would help me with this medically necessary surgery before I can’t take it anymore and become another Veteran succumb to suicide. I wish somebody will know somebody that can help me. I am a person reaching out for help from others I don’t even know to help make my dream come true, hell I don’t even expect this to do any good, but I also know there are good people out there, I just hope and pray this reaches them.Thank you for taking the time to read this it means the world to me.
