So, I've posted my story on another thread here, and so I won't repeat it.
I am new member here. I live in Los Angeles. I'm transgendered as the title says. I'm a US citizen and 47 yrs old, and suffering undiagnosed from in vivo embalment of my groin during a sex change operation in Thailand in 2009, for which the toxicity continues to spread, continues to increase the area of embalmed tissue.
I am an advocate for change to our healthcare system. Because my problem has been swept under the rug, I've started an effort to publicize my case on the internet:
--I have a flickr account where I post photos that prove my case.
--I have a youtube account where I discuss my ongoing journey to seek help.
--I have a donation account on everribbon.com for donations to help my cause.
Because of the nature of my case, I believe it needs to be publicized before I trust the medical industry with it.
I was born male and lived 35 yrs before deciding to do something about my gender identity issues. By the time of my final surgery, I had been on female hormones for 8 yrs and had lived and worked successfully as a female software engineer for 4 yrs. The requirements for getting a sex change are 1 yr on both of those.
Because of the lack of help I have been given, I have chosen to concentrate my efforts to publicize my case, to expose this Thai doctor that hurt me, and to expose the corrupt health care system that allows my condition to continue without diagnosis and without treatment.
I am an advocate for health care reform and those that have been victim to it. I ask others to join with me and say enough is enough. There needs to be a conversation about our health care system and what needs to be done to fix it. It isn't going to happen from those in Washington.
PS. If anyone is in the LA area and wants to help me (eg document my story) then please PM me.
