How has Covid Influenced Your Gender Care?

The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on transgender

and gender non-binary patients, specifically regarding their access to urgent care services for respiratory

concerns, and to characterize delays, postponements or cancellations in their gender affirming

healthcare. In response to the pandemic, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has released 1

recommendations on the postponement of procedures based on urgency. Gender-related surgical procedures are planned, or elective, operations, and therefore likely to be delayed due to the pandemic. The purpose of our study is not to advocate that health and safety of patients and healthcare workers should be jeopardized to proceed with gender affirming surgical care. We seek to characterize delays in care, and identify what temporizing strategies have been recommended (e.g. telemedicine clinics or therapy).

Took the survey. It doesn't address "Yeah, my insurance doesn't cover that" or "Hey, it's legal to deny me medical care in my state because I'm trans." Otherwise, not terribly invasive and you have the option of giving them a phone number or an e-mail contact at the end.

 

Hugs!

The only way the covid affected me is by forcing my therapist to do the telehealth visits and having smeared lipstick because of the stupid masks. lol. Other than that, nothing has changed

Since I just posted about my Mammogram in another place, they are still doing those where I am.

I'm dreading the moment my doctor tells me I need one of those. I really don't one of those or a colonoscopy. But both are lifesaving so I guess I'm going to have to woMAN up. lol

      I have struggled for 68 years - been through a sorts of therapy - suffered and denied - didn't want to accept - was born at a time when transition totally frowned upon - too afraid to admit my root cause problem - finally with the problem ALWAYS roaring back - I told my doctor then my wife - found a gender specialist who recommended a health care LGBTQ+ organization and I went for supervised HRT. I was determined that THIS I go until I found answers and happiness. For me this IS the path I denied far too long but now am happy I took it.   What was your way to finally accepting who you are and do you find you are happy you did?

      Good morning everyone,   That's great Liz.   I slept in today, and just now sipping coffee as the birds are on their second round of feeding this morning. Redwing Blackbirds are back the two pairs of Bluebirds are still visiting the mealworm feeder. No other new birds have been noticed.    My Suzie is more comfortable talking about my transition with me now that she can also bounce ideas, and heart ache to her sister and brother-in-law.  We're still living like roommates for now and I hope she able to be closer physically as time passes.   Hugs,   Mindy🐛🌈🦋

      I may not have had low T for years, but my body hair is black n thick. When it grows or I see some it sets something off in me, like ants walking over my body and it makes feel dirty and itch.  Arms are weekly, legs weekly, belly and chest is every two days (it is very sparse now though, but black). Face is daily. Eyebrows are getting easier though, as they're going white lol.

      Nah, I've seen cis-women who do that before. usually because their hair is especially dark. I've heard it's a thing in some Eastern cultures as well because, well, sometimes we get hair where we don't want it.   Hugs!

      Well I got to my shop, figured I’d do a little work but someone decided she needed to be seen. So here I am at work. I bet I’ll get a lot done🥰

      Ok, I'm inserting a new subject. I just started shaving my arms 2 days ago. I kept looking at my arms and kept thinking that this doesn't look right, so I did something about it. My wife thinks I'm being silly. She said that most girls don't shave their arms. (This coming from someone who hasn't had any hair on her arms for over 20 years). I told her "Well, this girl does".  Am I the only one who feels this way?
    • Maid In Bedlam
      That gave a me a smile Liz.  That just the sort of thing i would say. I like your supervisor 🙂
    • Jamie68
      Sorry, I just broke out laughing. That's awesome Jackie.

      Getting rid of Mr. Catheter was glorious. Well, not the removal part, that sucked, but afterwards (and not having to navigate the world with a catheter bag) was lovely. May the days pass swiftly until you can kick him out of your life!   Hugs!
    • Jackie C.
      Congratulations @ElizabethStar! I'm glad your wife is onboard. Also that the wall gets to be trans-flag colors. I think our flag is pretty too.   Oddly enough, my spouse and I had the same conversation last night. I was bawling at the end of Wandavision. My wife was dry-eyed. Well, somebody had to be the girl.    Hugs!

      Wonderful news Elizabeth! The role reversal comment your wife made sounds like some my wife has made.   Delcina

      Thanks, girls! I just got home from the hospital today. More like a smashed up cactus than roses, but we’re getting there! This week’s goal is to become friends with my catheter—my first boyfriend! Well, not really my first, but he’ll be in me all week, and I’m fighting the urge of just yanking him out. I go back to the hospital in a week to have him removed from my life permanently. I’ll have to reread that peeing thread then. Thanks again, everyone! It was nice having a place to moan when the going was tough! Kisses!

      Jamie, i know it took my wife and family what seemed forever to get my name and pronouns correctly.  Give her time and appreciate any effort.  It's hard for everybody. We are getting what may be the last flops of sap for the year and since we have a great deal of ice I'm looking forward to a long boil and a lot more maple syrup to end the season with.  It has been a funny year with a great early start followed by a long deep freeze.  Soon the remaining snow will melt and spring will come.  Yea!   Hugs,   Charlize

      I love this. But it is too bad he's an a-hole.
