Hearing things like this make me angry. Not only are these people supposed to be on our side, not only do they at least have at the very least a clinical understanding of how hard this can be, not only are they being paid to do a job, they still need to be poked and prodded to provide what we need.
I’ve heard so many stories about multiple hoops our brethren are made to jump through, well above and beyond the WPATH standards, just to get access to lifesaving treatment. Ugh!
Feel free to share my letter with them if it helps speed things along. I doubt my doctor will mind the plagiarism.
