My name is Ash Reinholt and I am a 26 year old ftm. Besides knowing I was a male my entire life, I found out surgery was possible when I was 15. I have been yearning for the moment I could finally look on the outside the way I feel on the inside. I am a small guy but with a very large chest (DDD) which makes it very difficult to hide. I'm always slouching and wearing baggy clothing along with my binder just to hide the lumps. I had to quit taking hormones 6 months after I started due to financial obligations. It has made me quite depressed living without top surgery and I am very determined to complete it before my 28th birthday. I have been living full time as male for a few years now. I enjoy every minutes of it. I just recently moved from California to Colorado in hopes to save money for surgery and to get my life back on track. My partner has been very supportive and has been such an inspiration with his determination and strength for saving for his surgery which he just got a couple months ago. I've been working very hard to advance in my job so I could be one step closer to saving. I just recently got a promotion as an associate manager. I don't have any children but I do have 4 dogs and a cat which are very like my children. I don't have supporting family and I've been out on my own since I was 17. But I feel that has made me a stronger person.
