Default Re: Bipolar Bias from doctor- It can happen to anyone.

One of the reasons I kept it a secret for so many years that I was transgender was because I was for sure no medical doctor or therapist would believe that a person with mental illness would also have gender identity issues as well. I was worried if I brought it up they would say “your mental illness is just confusing you. You don’t really want to be a boy” and that did happen back in 2011 but thankfully I’ve found a medical team that I can trust and will work with me.

There’s a lot of stupid people out there though.
