My name is Adele or Kat, the latter is more of a nickname. I’m a 21 year old trans girl who is also a type 1 diabetic with no insurance. I’m in the making of a post about needing help affording my insulin and other medication, but I’m waiting to post it until I have my PayPal connected to my new bank account. Basically, insulin is really expensive when you don’t have insurance, a single vial is over $400 and I obviously won’t be able to afford it when my current amount runs out, I’m currently selling stuff on the side to help alleviate this stress, but in the mean time if you could buy an Amazon gift card and enter my email address firstname.lastname@example.org into it, then that would definitely allow me to save up money as well, even if it’s only $1, that’s one less dollar I have to spend out of pocket for water, non-perishable food, toothepaste, bathing needs, etc. and I would very much appreciate it and I will try my hardest to email you a personal thank you for helping me out.

I still can’t fathom how hard it must be to live in the US if you have a chronic disease.
It’s getting closer because I have a cousin who got cancer when he was 15, and due to the chemo-treatments he now need hormone injections to function normally. But his mother says that her insurance wont cover when he turns 25 and it’s hard to get an insurance when you have a chronic disease!
It’s so freaky for me. I’m used to everybody just have an insurance, and of course the state will pay most of you treatments. (you usually have to pay about $350 of your own money pr year)
