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?

      I know. The ad was inserted by YouTube. I was just commenting because I thought the bra was a bit strange.

      I don't have a problem with cis actors playing trans characters, but I wish it would be cis women playing trans women, and cis men playing trans men, instead of cis women playing trans men and cis men playing trans women.

      The link works for me, it goes directly to Boy George's video titled Yes We Can   I swear, I did  not sent any "funny" pictures

      Hi everyone!    My name is Rory, I'm a 21 year old trans girl living in central Pennsylvania. I started my transition socially just over 3 years ago, and I've been on hormones since last October. Jackie Rabbit's YouTube channel brought me here, and I guess I'm looking for a community of other trans folks because since I can't be with my regular support network because of COVID. I have a wonderful group of people that I get to live with when I'm at college, and now that I'm back home there's still a few people outside my family that I still keep in touch with, but they don't always understand everything that's going on with me and my transition. I'll probably put together some other posts in the appropriate forums about my experiences with hrt, passing, and how my sexuality has changed in relation to my gender. This is getting long now, but I look forward to interacting more with the lovely people on this forum 💜

      I have two pairs of those. They're sticky rubber under cloth. I wouldn't wear them to go jogging or anything, but they do OK for keeping the girls "up and forward."   Hugs!

      When I clicked on that link it showed me an ad first about an "innovative bra" that looked like nothing more than pieces of rubber placed over the nipples.

      Hi, i started T blocker on Jan 14, 2020. I then started <removed> until June 26, 2020. I had my orchiectomy that day. I stopped cassodex the day before ( i was on that <removed> to suppress T) and nothing has been the same since. I am crying easily at like nothing things that are all of a sudden filled with emotional significance. I had some serious deeply embedded emotional "things" breakloose and surface that therapy has been helping to dislodge. Besides that I feel fantastic for the most part. My Boobs seem to have gotten twice as fulll overnight, nipples and areola larger,smoother and softer and more sensitive. And buds just ache like a toothache, not bad but sore and constant. It is incredible to wear cute panties without those ugly things popping out. and I sleep the night through without waking up ten times to pee. I do feel very different, that is for sure.

      @Courtney. I’m very sorry to read about these difficulties with your facing with each birthday.   This is something my therapist would say to me but here goes... I would try to look at this in a slightly different perspective. You are the essence of ‘Courtney‘.  Courtney was also born into this world yesterday some 46 or 47 years ago. Just because you see a male exterior does not mean you have to forfeit a life without birthdays. Your existence and lack of being able to present ‘as yourself‘ does not mean you have to forever give up the celebration of life that makes you...you! You have as much right as anyone to celebrate Courtney coming into into this world. Someday, if transition becomes possible, you may even have a different kind of celebration for Courtney. Crazier things have happened! 😃   My Best, Susan R🌷

      No not really!  I felt happy after starting but no fireworks.  As you have found changes do creep up on you and all the things you note will present in your life soon enough.  As to depression, talk to your doctor and get something for it.  There is no need to have this cloud over your life.    Jani

      Hello Rami and welcome. There are many "older" women here with similar stories to yours so you'll feel comfortable here.  Accepting that you are transgender is big.  I'm glad to hear you are dealing with it now.  I look forward to seeing you around.    Jani

      Thanks for this info.  I sent word to my mother who has a cat.    Jan

      Yeah, probably not for me either. It's a small office with a cramped and crowded waiting room. They may start taking appointments only though so, after I get the REST of my paperwork filled out (My gynecologist needs to inspect my GCS surgeon's work, declare me female and fill out a form to that effect), I can start looking into that.   The birth certificate should be easier. I can do that by mail or maybe online.   Hugs!

      Cloth. I got mine from Lookhuman then another pair from Amazon. Susan found one she liked at the antique store she was visiting on her birthday as well. I had to laugh when the young woman at the wig store asked for picture ID. "But... we're all wearing masks..."   Hugs!
    • lachallenger
      Huh! Usually communications with them are a bramble patch for me - though an office visit isn't going to be an option for me for a while, that said.   Cheers!

      My spouse is a vet tech and my estranged mother a veterinarian. I don't keep Lysol in the house. It's very poisonous to them and it works very, very quickly. Keep the babies safe. 😻   Hugs!
