Hello, my name is Adele, or Kat, the latter is more of a nickname. I’m a 21 year old trans girl who also happens to be a type 1 diabetic without insurance. What is diabetes, you may ask? Diabetes is a disease that infects the pancreas that hinders/disables it from producing insulin, therefore, I have to dose before meals and before bedtime or else I could go into ketoacidosis, where the body experiences high a blood sugar for too long, and basic body functions begin to fail. I’ve been hospitalized twice for this since I was diagnosed at 15 years old, and prolonged exposure to high blood sugar can effect the body in many harmful ways, like the loss of hands or feet, kidneys shutting down, loss of vision, etc. In case you didn’t know, insulin is a very expensive, novolog, for example, is over $450 for a single vial, and lantus being around $400 a vial. I currently live with my mother and brother which helps some of the financial strain, as well as having insulin still left over, but it won’t last forever, and what I aim to accomplish with this is to save up enough money for me to be able to buy it when it does run out, so I’m starting this a little early. If anyone sees the Amazon gift card post, don’t reblog it, as I would prefer money being put into my bank account. 
If you would like to donate to me to help me financially, you can donate to my PayPal, which I have a button which links you directly, or you can send it to megucagirl@gmail.com from PayPal itself. Even if you can only spare $1, it would help in the long to help me to afford my own insulin or to help me afford insurance which I have been denied help from the government already, and looking into private insurances. 
Please! Even if you can’t afford it, reblog and signal boost, This is very important.

i’ve always scoffed at those “oh my god europe is tiny”-posts but we just took the wrong exit driving back to our cabin and we literally ended up in norway and decided to just stay for dinner so yeah

this just happened AGAIN jesus fucking christ there isn’t even a sign that says welcome to fucking norway you’re just there all of a sudden

I could miss an exit and still stay in my state for another 8 hours.

Honest Question Here: When did it become your right to have someone else pay for your birth control?

Honest question back-atcha: When did it become your right to have someone else pay for your Viagra and penis pumps?

Insurance coverage is not the same as someone else paying for your medications. When women pay for medical insurance, they expect to have the medications they need covered by it. Simple as that.

king-of-my-kingdom asked:

Koodles asked you a polite, honest question and you respond with that bull crap?? Any form of contraceptives or abortion should be payed for out-of-pocket and not by tax payers. Same goes for viagra and similar drugs or operations. No ones entitled.

fuck-yeah-feminist:

He asked an obviously facetious, accusatory question and received an answer that matched his tone.

The “no one’s entitled” argument doesn’t work in this case. Sexual/reproductive health is part of human health— something for which we are ALL entitled proper care.

Here’s the deal:
Medical treatments for men’s sexual health ARE covered… as they should be. With that in mind, we are merely asking that women’s end of this be considered legitimate as well. To use your own terms, claiming religious reasonings for nullifying women’s sexual health— but not men’s— is the real “bull crap” in this situation.
