Thank you for looking at my fundraiser. I hope you donate before you leave but first let me tell you about myself.
I just turned 38 and for most of my life, I was living as someone im not. I was born a female trapped in a male body. I was wearing dresses when i was 8 but my parents being extremely religious, almost to the point of fanaticism, I was forced to grow up as who they thought God said I was supposed to be. I was never comfortable with myself, my life or how i looked, dressed or acted. Not being me, I rebelled in the only way I could without being physically disciplined for it... I did poorly in school. I left home when I was 19, determined to try to make Something of myself so i joined the military. I tried desperately to be a "man's man". Sports, actions, talk. But that life... that way of life, is not for me. Its not me. I'm a girl, and i've realized that i've wasted my energy trying my best to be something that would never have made me happy.
Im working on fixing this conundrum now. In the process of giving my life a complete makeover, I have been able to completely clean my credit, though I am waiting for it clear but i'm now finding it difficult to save for the surgeries necessary to finish my life's project. I am currently searching for a doctor or doctors for breast augementation, the vaginoplasty and a facial feminization surgery. So now I am doing something I have never done, even with my own family, who no longer view me as a part of their lives or worlds... I am asking for help. I have set the donation without a maximum or time since I know that what I am going through will make some people feel as though this is not right, it is against Gods plan or some other such notions. But i am just trying to be happy. I do not yet know just how much the entire process is going to cost and I am worrying that I wont have the financial capabilities until I am over 50.
Please help if you can and would like to see someone have a happy ever after.
