The Affordable Price of Whore Moans

2015-07-30 22.03.04Thank you for responding to my sensationalist heading. This article is really about hormones though those with an active mind might still explore a mental connection.

A good story has a clear context. Okay, so let’s set the context: I’m kinda broke. Actually, by general standards, I’m very broke. Not that I’m complaining; I feel like I’m living like a queen in regal luxury. I have everything I basically need and anything more would just be extra icing on the cake.

Besides, any non-trivial extra money that I don’t consider “seed corn” goes to paying off my financial debts anyway, so it’ll be a long time before I march into Mercedes-Benz of Reno and buy two of their sports models on the same day, as I did about a thousand years ago before the economy went bad. And it’ll be a long time before, as I did when the money flowed like water, I take the entire company to Hawaii for two weeks and pay for their housing, airfare, meals, etc.  Though were I to do that now it’d cost a lot less since the entire company is down to one or two people, depending on how you classify.

No, nowadays those Mercedes-Benz sports cars are long gone, and I’m driving one of two cars: a 1991 Volvo station wagon with the heater and blower both “on” all the time due to a malfunction … what’s that? Yes, I live in the middle of the Nevada desert. Yes, it’s summer. Yes, Volvos have excellent heaters. However, no worries, the tailgate has no window so the hot air kinda exits there. Yes, really. The other car is an even-older BMW that has no A/C and … anyway, you get the idea.

I live in a place built in 1937 (which in Nevada time means it’s Cro-Magnon) and I can’t afford to turn its A/C on.  I wear $10 Walgreens dresses and $10 sandals. I mostly eat fresh food …. that ironically happens to be the cheapest and more healthy type of food. And yet I’m giddily happy. My intent here is that you now you have some idea of how broke I am. As for health insurance, nada. And I’m fine with that. I’m healthy and just I make sure I don’t slip on banana peels.

So, I am kinda puzzled when I read of transsexual girls like me who wanna go on feminizing hormones but are worried because of the expense.  What expense?

I’m on hormones and if I can afford it, a pauper can, QED. Let me break it down for you:

I’m on Spironolactone. Thanks to Walgreens, that’s $30 a month. I’m also on oral Estradiol (which absorbes under the tongue so it bypasses and thus doesn’t destroy my liver). Thanks to Walgreens, that’s $17 a month.  Every six months or so I go to Planned Parenthood and get a checkup so that’s maybe $80. They order blood tests from Quest Labs and those cost me maybe $375. I’m also supposed to take one baby aspirin a day, and there are a million or so of them in a huge bottle that costs me almost nothing at Walgreens, so I have enough of that to last me until the sun becomes a red giant or white dwarf, whichever occurs later.

So, good people, I hope you enjoyed your case study about “going on feminizing hormones” being nicely affordable.

  1. I hear theres better and safer testosterone blockers. Were you prescribed by a healthcare professional or do you self prescribe? As far as health insurance goes I’d rather pay a little extra in my monthly tax (NHS in the UK).
    Have you considered a power inverter and a desk-top fan for aircon in your car?
