Can we get a signal boost for trans Latina Arianna Lint’s gender-affirming surgery? Her gofundme page has had 57 shares on facebook but not even half that many dollars in the month that she’s had her page.
My name is Gabrielle, and I am an incest survivor. After battling eight years of sexual abuse and two miscarriages from rape, I fled from my abusive household to attend Central Maine Community College. There I was conferred an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts while working over twenty hours a wee…
I’m in an environment that is detrimental to my mental health.
Dysphoria is starting to really take its toll on me. My sleep schedule is erratic. I have severe mood swings. I dissociate/depersonalize on a constant basis and it’s getting harder to remember things. I’m losing my appetite and I’m withdrawing socially. I’ve been dangerously close to relapsing w/r/t disordered eating/exercise and self harm. In terms of academics I’ve only been getting worse. I think I’m losing weight because of stress. My insurance only covers a certain number of therapy sessions and I’ve maxed out on them. A single one hour session, which is the minimum, is 100 dollars. That’s 1/3 of what’s in my bank account, which must be reserved for various mandatory school fees.
Most of my mental problems will be alleviated once I begin transitioning. Don’t message me and tell me that since it’s a mental issue it will have to be solved with therapy and meds. I am not here for that shit.
None of my family will help me pay for any aspect of transition and HRT is not covered by my insurance.
I had a job but it paid 4$/hr; I had to quit because of wrist pain (I might have carpal tunnel or a torn ligament). I’ve been looking for work since June of 2013 and no one has called me back. I strongly believe I can’t get a job because of transphobia. I feel if I were to get a job I would be harassed which I cannot handle for long because of my previous experiences with trauma. Even if I were to get a job, my mental issues have gotten to the point where most days I can’t think coherently, and my emotions are volatile. I legitimately can’t deal with people and I wouldn’t be able to accomplish obligations.
The donation button should be at the left uppermost corner of my blog.
I can edit papers, do transcriptions, research, make crafts, and do several other things. PM me, I’ll give you email and we’ll talk about it. Soon I should be uploading things I’m willing to sell. They’ll have the tag #GLforsale.
I have serious paranoia issues and because of them I am almost always private, except for now. I need help.
They couldn’t graduate high school because of depression caused by dysphoria. Please, help them in any way possible, and signal boost. Just take the few seconds to reblog this if you can’t do anything else, please.
