Hello there! My name is Aretm and I am a 22 year old transgender man. I officially became trans when I was 20, after graduating from high school, and when I found that I could no longer live as a woman. However, after that, I received a lot of negativity from my friends, and my parents stopped communicating with me. It was very difficult for me, because in our country of Russia, people like me do not meet with understanding. However, I coped with all this and was able to find understanding people.
Over the past 6 months I have made great strides in the medical transition and now I am ready to take a big step in the right direction. In March of this year, I planned to undergo an operation to change the breast from female to male. I have been saving money for the operation for a long time, since it was not easy to find a job where I would be respected on an equal basis with everyone.
I already have the payment for the operation, the remaining amount I will need to pay for my hospital stay, anesthesia and other medications, as well as a compression vest that I will need to wear while my stitches heal.
Thank you in advance to everyone who responds, thank you very much for your help!
