Hi guys gals and non-binary pals - I'm Jay and I'm 20 years old, living in the UK and identify as non-binary.
I had a breast reduction 3 years ago, hoping that it would relieve my dysphoria by enabling me to bind my chest and pass as more androgynous/masculine in the eyes of our cis-normative society, but being the trusting-of-our-health-system dumbass that I was, I managed to forget about the possibility of having a cis-normative surgeon who listened to all my gender complaints and insisted that he'd make me 'perfectly proportinate for my gender' and proceeded to take my chest from a huge 30HH to a still huge and VERY un-bindable 30F.
yah - for perpective in bra-talk thats size aa , a , b , c , d , dd , e , F , ff , g , gg , h , HH
and to top it off, bc i've already had one surgery, the NHS now won't let me have another one (despite the crippling dysphoria that stops me from leaving the house topped with a delightful sprinkle of back-pain, inability to run, grooves in shoulders from bras that can't hold the weight AND the financial pain of having to spend £50+ for specialist bras bc store ones aren't made big enough on the side), so now I have to pay to go private.
So not to get too deep into the abyss that is my mental state, but I need this more than you could ever know. And if you do know, then i am so so sorry because no-one should ever have to go through this.
But please, if you're reading this and you can spare anything - and i mean anything at all - it would mean the WORLD to me. If you do choose to donate, thank you so much <3
