Hey as some of you may know my name is Jaden! A 17 year old High School kid soon to be adult, who also happens to be trans male.
For years and years I have been thinking about transitioning and just finally starting the process to receive hormone replacement therapy. I have been given a referral to see a specialist to begin the introductory process, but with this comes a fee. Over the years I have been seeing mental health specialists regarding my other mental health issues which was free due to be still being classed as a child. Because I am 17 I will have to begin seeing adult specialists, ones that come with a huge fee. This is only for the mental health specialists, afterwards I will need to see another specialist on multiple occasions which is in an entirely different town and region.
This process is going to be a long and expensive one. I know many other trans folk wait until they're alot older, I really wish I could but I just can't take it anymore. I have a part time job which gets me some money, not too much though. So I am attempting to save up the little I have while still paying for my other expenses.
I completley understand if you can't/don't want to donate and I respect that, but even just sharing this a round to people that are in a position to help means alot!
