So I know for myself separating at 7 1/2 years, that yes some VA centers provide some basic care and treatment. But for those who made the long stretch to 20+ I was under the impression ya'll get Tricare still correct? I'm not sure how the VA's basic services are compared to still remaining on Tricare. As for current service treatment, still Tricare but obviously on post, I've not stopped receiving care up to this point. The army still continues to refine, but March is still slated to be the termination for surgeries covered, but I don't believe that affects HRT or BHH. Assuming Tricare's on post and retirement plans or similar perhaps expect something along those lines? But of course your best bet is to probably start calling and asking about it now.
Erin, welcome and back to your point. The VA will treat you regardless. You can ask for a referral to therapist and even obtain hormones after normal protocols are done, just like in civilian life.
What branch of service?
It's worth noting that the rules, to which you agreed on signing up, advise against evading the profanity filter. Offensive terms are not allowed to be used here; that's not censorship, it's common sense.
We do have an auto word filter that will change offensive words to something that is less offensive. Looking at it now, I can see that the term, dimwitted, is probably just as offensive as the word it replaced. We'll have to see about fixing that.
Please accept our apologies for the stress this has caused you.
You are all so wonderful with your kind words. I'm so grateful for the love and family I have here. I don't post all that much, but when I do, you all make me feel so good about myself. Thank you so much! I love you all ❤️❤️❤️
I think you have to have a intuition about it. It is super personal and other people might not think much of it like some others have said, but it's something you need to be comfortable with I think. By taking your time and thinking about it, I'm sure you'll make the right choice for yourself!
