Week 106 - More than I deserve (but I'll take what I can get)

So a couple weeks ago, I received news I was expecting to not receive. I won't pretend to have any idea what emails, phone calls, nice people, and or dumb luck have come together to make this happen, but I just got the insurance check for my orchi. Even though the surgery was back in May, even though I was told repeatedly not to expect it and had even been told 'that procedure isn't covered for someone of your gender' (multiple times)... It's weird. I've got privilege guilt from the overwhelming good fortune I've had with my transition. I know that much of my good fortune is the result of privilege (even dumb luck is a type of privilege). I just wish I had a better idea of what to do. It's rad for privileged folks to bring up the less fortunate, I just don't know how. I guess if nothing else, I remain visible as heck and I try to help folks out when/if I can.

Also, I try to check my privilege. It's easy to grouse and moan about my tits not being' as big as I'd like when I know damn well I've got buddies worried about not being' able to afford meds. Plenty of cats can't even GET on hormones. We're all in this together.
