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.
Hey everyone, I hate to do this, but I am in desperate need of help.
I just had a mad load of dental work done ($1200 worth) on a problematic tooth, only to have the other side develop an abscess and start hurting pretty much overnight. The pain is so bad that I cannot bite down at all, and even drinking water is something I need to psych myself up for. I won’t go too deep into details, but my tooth is loose, and there’s a bulge on the gums that is extremely tender to any touch. If anyone out there has ever experienced an abscess, you know how bad it can get. I really need this taken care of.
Between rent, phone, court fines, and my other bills, I can not afford anything else to go wrong. This is where, hopefully, some good Samaritans come in. What I would like to raise is $800. It may seem like a lot, (because to one person it is an absolute Everest of an amount right now) but if shared out among even 50 people, that’s only an average of $16 per person.
I have a PayPal for those of you that can help out: Gary_otterson@yahoo.com
Please share this, even if you can’t donate. I really need your help with this.
