I know I haven't posted in a while, things have just been a little weird for me. I've been taking the progesterone that Megan had given me, and it's been about two weeks. That's really thrown my moods off lately, so I didn't want to make a bunch of depressing posts. I wanted to just go ahead and use the meds since I have them, no point in letting them sit and go bad. It's only a few months worth, but maybe it will help the boobs grow a bit more. They aren't kidding when they say depression is a side effect. I'm starting to do a little better now though, but I guess I'll have to put up with it for a while.
I also decided to make an attempt to apply for food stamps and see about getting into some kind of housing program. I found one called Virginia Supportive Housing that I could probably qualify for, but unfortunately they have no open spots. My therapist wants me to at least call back and leave a message to see if I can get a screening and see about getting on a waiting list or something. I hate going that route, but it's better than not even trying I guess. The food stamps I should easily be able to get, then if the housing thing works out I have food covered. I'm getting really restless about not having a job lately, so it's pushing me to keep looking for options.
I found a TG organization that can make small grants to TG people to help out with transition related expenses. They're only between $50 and $1400, but it's something. I sent an email in to see if I can get one to help me out with buying my hormones. It's only $22.99 a month for me, so it wouldn't have to be a huge grant. I'd be happy with enough to cover me for a year. I haven't heard anything back on that yet, but I'm hopeful about it. I definitely should qualify. I'm unemployed and living with family because I can't afford a place of my own, so I hope that's enough to get it for me.
I don't know what exactly to go about doing, I'm just looking at my options and trying to make something work. I have my doubts about finding a job in this town, there just aren't that many. I need to move to Richmond, even in a bad economy I have more job opportunities there than here in the middle of nowhere. I'm not sure where any of this will take me, but I guess I'll find out in the coming weeks.
