Ya, if it feels right. What are the drawbacks?
It’s really expensive, and I’m a minor, so who knows if my parents would agree.
Oh yeah, that's tough. I've never gone through that, I don't know the best option. What are the cons to waiting till you have a job of your own?
I would have to deal with the dysphoria I have right now, which I can bear, but some days it gets really hard.
Maybe it will help to start saving away money now somehow. I don't know if you can find a job mowing lawns or working at a fast food place on the weekends. In a year you could probably save a lot.
I’m planning on getting a job this summer once I turn 16, but even then it’ll be minimum wage...
Minimum wage is great if you have no expenses.
True. Maybe my insurance would cover it too? I’m not sure.
Even if it just covered some of it. What do you think the total cost would be? How much would you have to save monthly if you wanted to start the process in Feb 2020?
$299 a month is enough to cover the cost of weekly testosterone injections.
After taxes, minimum wage gets you $6.90 an hour. Injections are $75 a week. You'd have to work about 11 hours a week. That's just a weekend shift at Subway. Very doable even for a high schooler.
That actually makes it sound more doable.
So you're fifteen years old and asking if you should pump yourself up with extra drugs? Whatever happened to teaching kids that this kind of shit isn't healthy? You're fifteen years old, hell no you shouldn't be taking that. Leave that for the grown ass men with erectile issues, you shouldn't even be thinking about that. Focus on school, friends, and your family, not that shit. You're literally going through puberty right now, why the hell would you throw MORE hormones into it?
What? It's a hormone. You can't stay or stop it.
I didn't get the question:(
Start or stop*
Testosterone as hormone therapy (I’m transgender)
I'm sorry. But do you really need to do it? I
Why do you have a problem with it? You kind of sound rude.
I didnt want it to sound rude. I'm sorry.
I think I shouldn't be helping you because I'm a hopeless person. I have anger issues and my life is a fuck up and I have nobody to talk to. I don't know how to talk to people. I'm sorry to have commented.
I surely didn't want to be rude.
Listen to your heart.
