“I’m a trans guy with chronic and episodic migraines. I’ve decided to save for top surgery and try to come out a bit more because it really, really hurts, the way that most people see me, and I’m mostly a “want it? then go get it” kind of person. I’m really afraid that if my conservative religious parents find out I’m trans they’ll refuse me health insurance (I live on my own but I’m on their plan) and then I can’t take care of chronic issues because they don’t like my trans issues. My therapist isn’t really experienced with trans people, so they keep suggesting that I might be feeling I’m trans because I have some issues with some females in my life, which is true, but I also have a lot of issues with the males in my life, as well. I’m just really uncomfortable so much of the time and I manage my illness in varieties of “ok” but there’s so many other things that just make me want to curl up in a ball and cry. But I also need to work and be there for my best friend.”
