Authentic in Kitrah A blog by Kitrah KarenPayne Posted 11 hours ago Prior to transitioning there were times where I could not validate a move forward course of action so I know it can be difficult but once you (can) get past the naysayers validation is easier. If one can't get past naysayers and must struggle with those people and finances can lead down a dark path. What I've seen locally to new friends who were on the fence about any form of transitioning, after having serious discussions with me in regards to the commitment and mindset coupled with proper therapy was a change of heart from being unsure to an affirmative path to which direction to move towards be it part time, full time (no surgeries or just hormones) to moving forward with the entire transformation to the gender they feel they should had been.I can't fathom struggles with finances other than flipping the entire bill along and feel for you. I do know of less than a handful of transgender people that are moving forward with some form of government or employment aid yet both seem to take forever to advance towards one's goals. This is so similar to things like dental insurance where what one really needs insurance does little or nothing to assist.
