I'm ready to start living!
Organized by: Ricardo Robinson
Hi everyone my name is Ricardo Robinson and I'm a 39 yrs old man living in East Central Illinois. I've been suffering from an embarrassing and humiliating disorder called gynecomastia ( man boobs ) (excessive breast tissue) since puberty. Gynecomastia has literally stolen the Joy from my life. I've exercised on and off nearly my whole life and nothing I do seem to work. I've pushed my body to the maximum limits and gotten minimal results in my chest area. It's gotten to a point in my life where the colors are seeming to fade.This probably would seem small or less serious to some and I understand. But for me it's extremely serious. I've never had a chance to enjoy a beach because of the embarrassment from my Gyno. I don't wear tight shirts or tank tops. I leave my shirt on while being intimate. This disorder has hindered my growth as a man in every way. At first I thought it was just fat. Then I turned my body to nearly all muscle and my gyno was still there unaffected. This disorder has affected me psychologically secretly for years and the the frustration is becoming overbearing. The average cost for Gynecomastia Surgery is around $6000. I have medical Insurance but it don't cover gynecomastia because it is looked at as plastic surgery. It is beyond embarrassing and always depressing when you're a "straight" man who has tits and there is nothing within your power you can do about it. It's kinda like everyone is pointing at you laughing. I'm a very grateful person and I appreciate all that this life has offered me thus far. Yet a part of me truly feel like I will never start truly living until I get this surgery. If you are reading this please help me...
