It Has Been A Rough Year

I am adding this additional chapter to my introduction, because after I initially wrote the introduction, it was very difficult to come back to it and try to make sense of all that I have experienced through the various stages of my life and the trials that I have endured or overcome.  I wish ...

PLEASE READ: ---- Sharing my story, hope you share too. :) -------------- Whatever you can afford will help me. Thank you very much! I appreciate you even spreading the word too! ? Please show your support in this journey to get my masectomy (chest removal)! Whatever you donate is going to be matched by another donor organization. When I was in school I was bullied. Kids would spit on me, kick me, put my backpack inside out and push me down the stairs. When I told an administrator they told me, “A lady boy half-person like you should expect to be treated that way." Students and teachers called me an "it" and a "tranny". So, I withdrew out of high school my first week of junior year and got my GED. I'm going to the Community College of Rhode Island and majoring in fine art. I want to be a teacher. I have anxiety, ADHD and depression. I also have dysphoria. Dysphoria is the feeling I get when people use the wrong pronouns/name, looking at myself in the mirror, people calling me names, or looking at me the wrong way for being transgender. I have been on Testosterone since January 2013. I also got my name changed this year. However, the one thing that I still desperately need is top-surgery (masectomy) (so I won't get Cancer and deal with dysphoria). It is all very expensive. $8,305 dollars. I need help to raise this money. I identify as gay. Some people ask me why did I “become” a boy, to like boys. My sexuality has nothing to do with my gender. I always knew I was a boy I just never told anyone. In elementary school I would stand up when they asked the boys to stand. I wanted to play sports and play videogames but I was ostracized. I can’t even go on the city bus without cringing at the things people call me and I can’t live without my chest binder. Some my family disowned me and my mother is disabled. It seems wherever I look I can’t pass as myself. I don’t want to prove my happiness, my gender, my pronouns or my name. I want to help all the transgender kids, even by showing them that it is possible, to dream of a day without dysphoria. Nobody should have to go through what I've been through. I didn't choice to be this way. Life is too short to be sad. I really don't want anymore trans people to die from ignorance or suicide. I tried to commit suicide four times. Insurance won't pay for my surgery, please help me get one step closer. Donate 1$, even that will help. I appreciate what you can do, spread the word. All I want is equality. And of course, no more moobs. Please help, thank you for your support, I couldn't accomplish this without you! Thank you. www.gofundme.com/nomoobs My paypal is : jbartlett1@my.ccri.edu
