I need some information!!!

I need help in a few areas regarding my transformation:


1.
I been to physcologists all my life. It started when I was about 4-5yrs old. I was sexually, physically, and emotionally abused by my father. He was charged and is still locked up. Due to a comprise plea he said he did it and they only charged him for attempted. Well there was a court fire (not really explained to me in detail) but his documents were destroyed in it. And then last year he put up a re-trial claiming he was "wrongfully sentenced" usin another later case. But didn't suceed and still appealed it and it was just a mess. The dust has settled there.

But understanding this, with me being young when it happened. Are therapists required to wait longer to start me on T? Or is it on a therapist by therapist basis? And in waiting longer circumstances, how long do most therapists recommend/take?

2. Anyone know any trans therapist that are in the tampa bay area of florida? And if so how long does it usually take with them before they can get you in? And how long before they start talkin about testorone?

3. Approx. how much does the sessions cost? Is it per session/time or by length of time with them overall? (I been under gov't insurance when I was with the normal therapists)

4. Any insurance companies or groups or organzations that help out with the costs? do they help out w/ paying for T? surgerys? 

5. How much does it usually cost for T? and how often?





some background info on me in case it may help.
I'm 18yrs old (19 in Dec.) I have known all my life that I was born wrong. My mother even told me I was suppose to be a guy, she didn't knew what happened when I popped out. (she didn't name me for 2 weeks til the deadline and ended up naming me after a girl she had kissed (her first lesbian experience). When I was 5 I told my moms old roomates son who was the same age "one day I'll be able to piss standin up and not have to wear a shirt outside too." And have pretty much knew since then for sure. Anyways, I've had my share of trouble when I was going through teenage years. I was sent to FLYCA (its a  bootcamp ran on the camp blanding national guard base in Starke, FL.) when I was 16 got out right before my 17th birthday. (I let people walk all over me when I was there and stayed a honory cadet and finally had enough of it and ended up getting into 2 different fights in one day). I had lived with my cousins after leaving and then came back to central florida and lived with my now X-gf Melanie. And then last year in Oct. I had gotten my own place and then sold it this past May and now am living with friends of mine til I can get my own place and working part time making $10 a hour at 22hrs a week doing telesales. I am lookin for as much help as I can seeing I'm the black sheep in my family and no one supports me about being lesbian, except my mom. So then I told her about being male and she is still behind my back. Unfortunatly I am barely making it by as is now so saving up and trying to do anything is hard as hell so now I'm tryin to stick my hand out for help!

turning on the dim lights,

plugging in the video poker machines,

plugging in and bunching in my favorite gender bender song on the juke box.

and unlocking the doors.

I can’t believe how great I feel! I had to take a couple of hours before I could sit still to type it all out. I had my consultation with the plastic surgeon today about the possibility of getting a breast reduction. I was very honest with the doctor about my desire to have a more masculine looking chest and even talked to him about having been born with ambiguous genitalia. I also let him know that the size of my breasts have kept me very over weight from trying (and successfully even with him at first) to disguise them as just fat boy boobs (compounding the problems I have with high blood pressure high cholesterol and diabetes) I told him that I may be able to loose the weight after the breasts are gone, but that I had lost down to 175 lbs and had gotten sexual attention from men that my childhood molest issues made more than just uncomfortable for me. I let him know that my chiropractor had adjusted me several times and said that it was my breasts that kept putting my back out between my shoulders. I also told him that I knew my medi_cal wouldn’t pay for a breast removal based on gender preference alone so if all I could get was a reduction, then I would settle for what I could get. He examined me measured me took some before pictures and talked to me at length about the post surgical stuff as well as how I would like my chest to look when we finished. Then he told me that he was going to give me a male chest if medi_cal puts their OK on the need for a reduction. I swear I floated out of there. I was so happy with just the possibility of these damn things being gone before next summer’s heat. The heat waves we’ve gone through here this year were awful. I keep thinking about how I will be able to sit at my desk with no shirt on and the back door hanging open to let the breeze in without worrying about someone seeing my tits. Sammie her sister and her niece all try to assure me that I have nothing they haven’t seen before but it just feels really creepy to think of them seeing me with these damn boobs hanging in front of me.

OK Rob now I want to know all about your diet. Please send all the info you can to my email if you would.

And For all you Medi_cal covered FTMs here’s the Doctor’s information

New List: OutForDean - Transgender [20 Aug 2003|12:46am]

beckygrrl
Hi everyone!


There's a new Yahoo Group for transpeople and our allies who are interested
in and supportive of Howard Dean's candidacy for President. It's owned by
Temenos and OUTForDean owner David Mariner, and co-moderated by Angela
Britfether and myself.


We hope to discuss transgender-relevant issues and politics, as well as how
we as transpeople can take more of an active role in the Dean Campaign,
both in terms of helping Gov. Dean become our next President, and in having
our community and our issues gain a greater public presence in the
campaign. Please join us if you have an interest!


http://groups.yahoo.com/outfordean-transgender


Hope to see you there!


Go Dean!


Peace and Power,


Becky

Please forward / post in any relevant communities!!!!
Sorry for the cross-posting.

gender_petitionGender_Petition Help make Livejournal.com officially friendlier to gender variant / genderqueer / trans identities!!!

This community has been created as a petition to the maintainers of Livejournal.com to request listing more than male and female as gender options in the information / profile listings. This community / petition is for people of all genders.

Livejournal.com currently has close to 1,000 users who list transgender as a personal interest, (and this list is growing daily!) There are also well over 200 communities that address gender variance and relevant identities. Even if you identify as strictly male or female, your membership shows support for other people being able to express their gender identity. After all, Livejournal.com is about being able to express yourself.

By joining this community, you are effectively signing this petition to show support for listing more than two gender options in livejournal profiles / info.

Once you have joined the community, you will be able to suggest what other options you think should be listed and participate in further discussion of the topic. Once we have a significant number of members, this community will be directed to the maintainers of Livejournal.com, asking them to expand the current gender options.

Thank you, and please – forward the information about this communities existence!

This is my new LJ F2M pride Icon. It's my art work and I wanted everyone to know it's free for the taking. Enjoy

please note i do know about that peptobismol pink triangle that has the male, female and the crossed male. I just hate that it still centers on the female. OK so I hate the pink too. any way here it is.

Hi everybody. Just getting my feet wet with this whole live journal thing. thanks for having such a great group. I'm a 43 year old FTM who hasn't had top surgery and other than an emergency hysterectomy no bottom surgery to speak of either. My blood sugar, pressure and cholesterol are to high for any DR to OK T so I'll have to face life without a yetty face, thank goodness I already have a pretty high T rate of my own. at least I can still pass as a male without it. But I do have a referral for a boob reduction (it's as close as I can get with my insurance.)I have AIM with the same name if anyone would care to chat. I'm pretty much a night person. I tend to head for the sheets just as the sun starts peeking over the sierra mountains. Any way hope to get to know some of you guys. holler any time.

Casey

I wanted there to be a safe place out there for people who identified as bois. Whether that be bio, or trans, genderqueer, or boidyke. We all are bois, and we should all get along. So this is a place to post our issues about passing/not passing, our issues with pronouns, our issues with other trans people not seing us as trans or not. Here we are. We are all real bois. Let's celebrate shall we?

I set up this community for anyone who is a boi... mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, it doesn't matter here. No matter what you look like on the outside, no matter what you were born, no matter if your nose grows when you lie, you will be accepted here.

Sorry for the cross post.

HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!!

We just saw the most awesome amazing fabulous tv short, called Blue Haven.
It was the most adorable story about an MTF EVER. It was adorable. If you're interested:

Channel 322 Blue Haven, HBO Comedy-West, 11:40pm Central time.

"Skateboarders search for money so one of them can get a sex change operation."

Stephan's taping it, so if you're near us, or in milwaukee visiting, you can definitely watch it with us. We have never before seen a non-homophobic trans movie.

Sorry for the cross post. I'm working on my book... The working title is "The Queer Everything." It's going to be sort of like Raymond Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft, only for queers.
I'm working on an outline and I was wondering if you all had any suggestions.

It's going to encompass sexuality, gender identity, transgender, and many more issues that plague the queer community. I'm taking suggestions from Queer and Straight people alike, and anyone else who has any input. So if you have any suggestions, leave me a message here. :) Thanks
