There are a lot of insurance plans in recent years that cover things like psych visits and HRT, but not SRS.
Whatever the case maybe, getting a job is more than ke
A Crumbling CastleHave you ever felt so alone and abandoned that you have thought of running away and never coming back? Have you ever felt so wounded and scarred deep inside that you considered ending your life as a solid option? If your answer to both questions is a silent yes in your head but never aloud, you are like I was and perhaps, still am.A Crumbling Castle2 hours ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
I first noticed how different I was from the others on first grade. Most of them had been to preschools and kindergartens together, I had been at home with my siblings and our mother. Then there was the matter of how I looked. Though born and raised in the very same country by parents, whose families had been from there (under one rule or the other) for centuries, I looked like someone whose family had moved from Arabia or Israel. I openly wore a cross-necklace around my neck and didn't laugh or roll my eyes at every mention of religion. I wasn't into the hobbies and past times they felt I should have been. My name w
