What would you like to see?

I apologize for so few posts lately. If you haven’t gathered yet, I’m very ill.

But I want to keep growing this blog and educating people.

So my question to you my followers is this: what topics would you like to see more posts on?

Please help me improve the quality of this blog!

My name is Breeanna (Bree). I’m 29 and live in Missouri.

Here is my story.

Over the last few years I’ve become increasingly sicker. First I was diagnosed with severe IBS. Then I had emergency surgery to remove my gallbladder. At the time I was not insured. I am still paying down a $26,000 medical bill.

But my story doesn’t end there, it gets worse.

Over the last few months I’ve been developing cellulitis, several infections in my lungs and muscles fatigue. Since January alone I’ve had 2 urgent care visits, 5 doctor visits, and a trip to the ER. I take 12 pills a day.

I do suffer low thyroid…but it does not explain a lot of the other symptoms.

The ER doctor and my doctor are sending me to an immunologist for ANA level testing. They’re very sure I suffer an auto immune disease. Which one? We don’t know yet. MS is a big possibility. My 4 older female cousins have all had it. 2 have died from it. I’m the 5th born female cousin. I’m praying its not my turn to get the disease.

Tumblr, here is where I need you.

Specialists, even with insurance, are expensive. My medications are expensive. Doctors visits and urgent care…that’s expensive too.

I cannot afford my rent or car payment this month because everything has gone to medical. My family has helped some, but my nephew was born with expensive medical needs and my step dad is presently dying of liver failure. Its a horrible time for me to become sick too.

I have a fundraising page set up. Money goes to medical expenses and things like groceries.

I also have PayPal - Marchingduck@gmail.com

Even just a few bucks goes towards making my medical life better.

I dream of coming back to marching and auditioning for DCA. I want to watch my nephew grow up and doing fantastic fun things like the magic house or the city museum. I want to do the color run and other themed marathons.

I want to live my life and not worry if I can afford medical treatments.

So please, even if you can’t help, share my story. I update my page almost daily.
If you have questions about my conditions please ask. I’m an open book.

Please help me Tumblr. You’re all I’ve got.

So, last night, I was getting ready to go out with my boyfriend to a dance at my school (which was cancelled due to lack of ticket sales) and, I had a nice black vest and a nice white shirt, and my uncle had just came home the other day from the mine (my uncle is homophobic and he has abused me many times throughout my child hood) and when I had came out of my room to show my memere how nice I looked, my uncle was in the room that i thought my grandma/memere would be in (she was downstairs doing laundry), and he asked me why I wasnt wearing a dress. my memere and dad both know that I am transgendered and they respect that, however, my uncle does not, and he did not know. so I decided to sit down and tell him the truth. he listened carefully and quietlly through all of it, but at the end of my explanation he had said, “I didn’t raise you to be fucked up.” I agreed, I am a huge mess, I have been for years, but my sexuality and gender identity is not a fuck up, so I argued with him. he got to a point where, after so many months of piece, he slapped me. and threw me to the ground and kicked me in the stomach, of course I had puked, and it hurt, a lot. he grabbed me by the shirt and asked me, “are you a girl”, I said no, my sex is female, but my gender is male..and he dragged me to his room. he once had a big dog, and he made that dog wear an eletrical dog collar, and weve always kept it in his room, because we dont need it (my uncle killed the dog), he threw me onto the bed and said,” ill ask you one more time, are you a girl” I said no. held grabbed my wrist, and held onto it tightly, I have a bruise from how tight he was grabbing it, and he pulled out the dog collar, threw me back onto the bed, sat on me, and put the collar on me… then he began yelling, are you a girl, you are a girl, are you a girl, you are a girl, and my response of course was no, no, no, I am male, I am male. whenever I said that, he would shock me, and it was /hell/. I was screaming, which only caused the shocks to get worse and worse, and then he said, “do you want to find out how faggots have sex!?” of course I already know this, but still I said no no no no stop stop stop. my memere had finally heard me and came rushing to the bedroom, and tried to make my uncle stop, but he pushed her down, and thanked god she was okay.. since shes very fragile and all. she then ran back to the stairs to call up my dad, and oh boy did he run. he ran up stairs and shoved my uncle away from me and started fighting with him, yelling, punching, kicking, and such so on. my memere got the collar off of me and brought me into her room, and after my dad and uncle were done fighting, my uncle had grabbed the things he needed and left, shouting a few insults at us. we called the police today, but they cant find him. we dont have money for a lawyer,  all we have is a counsellor, im not going to ask for money, all I ask for is support. I dont know what this will do, but please spread this around,  this has affected me and family members greatly. I was taken to a hospital today to check if there was any damage on my insides that we dont know of and thankfully there was no damage, just scarring, emotionally and physically. i had a horrifying nightmare relating to this as well. If you have abused somebody, raped somebody, insulted somebody, in any way possible, I hope this can somehow change your way of heart, and realize how much this can horrify a person, and ruin their lives. it made my life 97x worse than it already is.


Fuck…


My wonderful followers, share this story. Hopefully the abusive uncle will be arrested and charged with assult. To the OP, if you are in need of resources please let me know.

Friendly reminder to current & incoming college students:
It’s around that time of year where we have to submit our tax and income information for college, assuming you qualify for federal aid. When you are filling out your FAFSA application, make sure you choose the one with the web address of https://fafsa.ed.gov
It may seem pretty obvious, but when I was an RA, I’ve had a surprising amount of residents who had no idea which one to choose, and got caught up in things like:
being charged to file (FAFSA is a free application and the government WILL NEVER CHARGE YOU)
having sensitive information willingly taken (FAFSA is done online through a secure server on a .gov website, which for all intents and purposes is safe), and…
…Because it was filed in the wrong place, the college never receives your information. Students think that everything is done, and wind up with no financial aid for the coming school year because they didn’t bother to check. This results in a lot of heartbreak and tears when you’re scrambling to get enrolled!
So please please PLEASE pay attention when you’re applying for aid. Don’t get scammed, and don’t get screwed out of help, okay?
And as another quick tip: make sure you have this year’s tax information handy (and your parents, if you’re a dependent) to make the process easier. Even if you think you or your folks make too much, apply anyway! Sometimes you could qualify for certain grants and scholarships through your school - but they need your FAFSA info!
This has been a friendly reminder. Good luck! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Endangered Species Condoms!

I like these endangered species condom wrappers, produced by the Center For Biological Diversity — and not just because they taught me how to correctly pronounce snowy plover, or because I often think about the hellbender when I’m feeling tender.  They make an important point about the link between human population growth and the dramatic population decline of other species.

The wrappers were designed by Lori Lieber and the artwork was created by Roger Peet. Don’t share these images without acknowledging them!

Why I use the * along with gender.

I never, ever, want to insult a person’s gender identity. It is extremely disrespectful and I do not stand for it.

If you see my use of male* or female* I am using this as an umbrella term. Not all males have a penis. Not all women have a vagina. And I want to make that clear.

My goal is for my followers to get sexual information they need without judgement.

If you ever see me make a mistake with gender I am deeply sorry and please let me know so I can correct it.

Thank you all for following me! I wish you all health and happiness!

I haven&#8217;t had a chance to fact check this yet, but I&#8217;m hoping its accurate. But my male* followers, make sure you get checked regularly. Early detection saves lives.

Hopefully making a comeback!

Yesterday I posted my call for help.
I’ve been very ill, and I’ve been neglecting my sub-blogs.

I will be trying to revive and post again, because I love this blog very much. Being an advocate for reproductive health is so important to me.

If you could help me share my post from yesterday I’d appreciate it. My medical expenses are very high.

And I will work hard to bring this back to a thriving educational resource!
