In 2009, I came out as trans. I tried and failed multiple times to secure funding for top surgery. GFM's that went nowhere, trying to save portions of paychecks, selling possessions. Top surgery is expensive. Layoffs, unemployment, children, and tanked credit from struggling to survive throughout it all has left me virtually unable to save any funds. It is highly unlikely that I will ever be able to afford surgery on my own.
Dysphoria has become a daily obstacle for me. It affects my ability to go in public and is an added stress on myself. I do not have access to resources that many of my peers do - insurance, disposable income, good credit, etc. Without help, I will never have top and the thought of it is severely disheartening.
