It's a struggle, but I'm making it and that's what matters.

I am a survivor.

My illness does not define who I am.

It’s about who you miss at 2 in the afternoon when you’re busy, not 2 in the morning when you’re lonely.

Extremely important

Trans Guys | Bind Kinder 
The use of ace bandages for binding is not only extremely uncomfortable, its dangerous. Ace bandages contract around the ribcage, not allowing your ribcage to expand as you breathe, furthermore, putting you at risk for deformed ribs from prolonged use, as well as broken rib bones. Always use a binder, which is specifically designed for binding and shaping the chest. Can’t afford a binder? contact Aydian Dowling at point5ccclothing@gmail.com and get a binder for nothing more than the cost of shipping.

Things I wish I’d known in high school. Guys seriously the ace bandages can do some serious damage, don’t do it. Huge thanks to whoever is at that email taking care of folks so kindly.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE spread this information and STOP DRAWING FANART/CREATING MEDIA THAT PORTRAYS USE OF ACE BANDAGES because not all trans people know this and will attempt to bind in dangerous ways if not given alternative methods!!

Please please please please please! Use binders, friends! I once tried to use Ace bandages to bind just for a cosplay and I couldn’t breathe after wearing them for only a few minutes. Get yourself a binder. I want you guys to be safe!! 

I had to bind my boobs with and ace bandage after getting a biopsy and I had serious back and rib pain for the longest time. I dont understand how people can do it.
