It took me 12 years to muster up the courage to say those last words, “brother” and “son.” I have to admit, it hasn’t always been that way.
I remember as a teenager, lying in my bed at night praying that I would wake up the next day and be a boy, to be my authentic self, and to just have my family be proud of me. With every penny thrown, with every birthday candle blown out, my wish was always the same.
For every trans person, it feels a little different. For me, it felt like constant homesickness. Not a homesickness in my own body, but homesickness in my own life. It was an unwavering, unyielding ache in the pit of my stomach that only went away when I began to embrace my true self. When I could be seen as me.
Here, I am asking for your HELP to make it a more authentic self.
I began transitioning through hormone treatments 1 year ago, I have always lived with Gender Dysphoria and have always wanted to be recognized as male.
I have my Gender Identity Dysphoria certificates and I am on hormones necessary for surgery, but due to my financial condition, I can't really afford my "top surgery". I am a person living with Diabetes every month I somehow manage the expenses of medicines and tests.
With the beard, accessing public places is getting difficult for me, and it's a daily struggle now, to complete the process of transitioning, I now have to undertake two expensive surgeries - Top surgery (breast removal ) and (hysterectomy) Uterus Removal.
I collected money for 2 years in Gandhi Fellowship but due to COVID most of the money went in survival as I was without a job. My mother's pension is not enough to provide for my surgeries, also she is in denial, and relation with my siblings is strained. My father passed away in 2019 August. So in a nutshell I don't have support from family.
It's you, Yes YOU all, my chosen family, I need support, love, and help to go through this.
