Is it really? There are grants you can apply for. There are web sites for fundraising. Plenty... well maybe not plenty, but there are avenues to get what you need. 

 

Two years ago I was where you are. When I found that I couldn't get a line of credit for GCS it nearly broke me. I managed though. I came up with the funds... with lots of help from friends and family, but I did it. You can do it too.

 

I agree it should be easier, but if I get started on that, it will turn into a rant about opportunities and health care in the United States and nobody wants that.

 

Depression is a beast. It takes the energy you should be using to achieve your goals. You can't let it. It's also a hard beast to beat alone. Let your support structure know what is going on in your head and let them help you. Don't let the depression monster win.

 

Hugs!

😓I understand the feeling. It feels like everything comes with an over inflated pricetag on things. Want a kid and to transition and neither seem possible, probable or in reach at the moment, it can be depressing. Feels stickier than super glue, stuck, but we just have to keep working, no matter how slowly. Maybe starting a Patreon or a small crowd fund with something to help you get extra. Now since everything is officially migrating to computer work, unless you're qualify for essential work, you would at least don't have to travel hrs to work, but spend it working online as best you can, cuz it's safe and better than nothing. There's also blogging and product reviews and many writing jobs online, which you can get paid for, maybe that might help. I like listen to Flight of the Concords "inner city pressure," it's oddly lifting in a strange way. Maybe cuz it hits closer to home.

I agree. I'm resisting temptation also it's frustrating. Thanks!

Depression is indeed a beast. Debilitating, paralyzing. Coupled with the shutdown, it makes things difficult. You feel trapped, no way out.

Kellysinclair101 I sort of understand. I was homeless in the Boston area, living out of my car, for over a year.

You have to have faith in yourself that you can find a way through this.

Keep us posted on how you're doing, okay?

      That's a great resource and charts @VickySGV.  Thank you!   @HollyNoel I can attest to the accuracy of the information provided by Vicky.  I eventually found my "right" sizes by trial and error and reading reviews on Amazon for "fits as advertised" or not.  (wish I had this resource before that) Be careful if you are buying online and the vendor is an Asian outlet, because their size charts are different and you need to go up two full sizes normally (like I am XL in US sizes, but XXL or XXXL if its in Asian sizes)   Have fun shopping❣️

      T-Shirt bras are super soft and comfy. There's a bit of give in them too, so that's lovely. Good choice! Doesn't come in my size though. <pout>   Hugs!

      That is super great news. I am excited for you. I am waiting for news therapist to get my referral letter and want to see if my old psych will also help me. Congrats. Shay

      Hey @TransMex! I'm glad to see that you're still with us.   Real talk? That's your depression gnawing at your ear. It makes it harder to focus. It makes it hard to love yourself. It makes it hard to pursue your dreams. I get it. I've been where you are. You feel hopeless. Alone. Afraid. You just want to put your burden down. You need the hurting to stop. I let that go on until I was forty-eight. Don't do that, it was a terrible idea.   So yeah, the first steps are the hardest. You need to be talking to a therapist. They don't have to be a gender therapist. That would be ideal, but learning to love yourself is a very important step on your journey. I realize that the depression makes it very hard to take care of yourself, but that first step: Talking to a therapist, helped a lot. Hormones helped a little more. Every step made things just a little better. It got a little easier to take care of myself. It got a little easier to pursue my dreams again. I'm not there yet, but I'm getting better. Every little step helps. After you force yourself to take that first step, every step after comes just a little easier.   HRT should help with the mental static too. Once you can think again, it will be easier for you to plan and work towards your goals. In the meantime, we're always here if you need to talk, OK?   I can see that pretty girl looking back at me in the mirror more often than not. It's a great feeling. I want you to have that feeling too.   Hugs!

      I actually did get the Diagnosis I was expecting!    I made a video about the experience which is here      But obviously any questions you have I'm happy to answer here no matter how personal.

      Hey Mex your only 27. I didn't start to full transition until 3year ago. I am 57. Your young which is the best time I think to start transition. I am not sure if you are American Citizen or not. Your grammar is well verse. But if you are and you live in Cali. I would look at trying to get on The Affordable  Care Health plan or Obama ( Heath Care L.A) plan . They will pay for HRT , Gender therapist  and if you qualify they will pay up to 80% of all your surgeries , which included, Female Fascial Feminization , Vocal, Breast and you bottom.  Regardless, Hardest part ( for me) in my transition is moving forward, not giving up or in to my  dysphoria. The easiest  part is giving up. Be safe, BE Proud and KICK ASS

      Sad that it happened, good that some justice is being done, and there will be some closure.
