In the middle of an extraordinary campaign to characterize me as a transsexual, all my life was changed in 2008. Criminal groups were given all authority to create songs calling for my death. Movies were created. Information refused to me when requested. Heating while I was starting a homeless period for the first time in my life. Hate at shelters and later, attacks with electronic devices in hospitals. Plus wrong medication and mistreatment by some medical personnel.
It is hard to believe that I can write this after suffering so much.
Tried to leave the country in 2008 and it was stopped with different pretext and lies.
At the moment of this writing, still pain in my bones, a lot, as a result of strange situation at the dentist's office. Better laws now with respect to sex issues, hut not a real comprehension for the victims, not yet, in different locations.
I have been stopped from reaching my country three times, to help my family.
Different strategies have been implemented to ignore the EMR devices and the effects of them on me, which is the cause why I feel so bad now, plus the wrong medicines and that nothing, absolutely nothing has been done, that I know, with the ones who created media that destroyed my life.
Torture with electronic devices
I do not identify myself at this moment as a transsexual, but there are a lot of media that has allowed people to profiteer out of me.
My condition of a foreigner in this country has been used as a factor to create a lot of xenophobia.
In different occasions, officials who could have helped did not do it and, on the contrary, collaborated with the attackers
