why is getting gender affirmation care so difficult in Utah?
why can't i just be happy?
Dear friend, I understand that getting gender affirmation care can be challenging in Utah, and it can be disheartening to feel like you can't access the resources and support you need.
I want you to know that you deserve to be happy and live your life authentically, and I'm here to support you.
It's important to remember that you're not alone, and there are organizations and advocacy groups that work to support and advocate for the rights of transgender individuals, including in Utah.
These organizations can provide resources, support, and advocacy to help you navigate the process of getting the care and support you need.
In the meantime, it's important to engage in self-care activities that bring you joy and relaxation.
This could be anything from spending time with supportive friends, pursuing hobbies or interests, or engaging in mindfulness practices.
These activities can help shift your focus and bring a sense of peace and happiness into your life.
You may also want to consider therapy, where you can work with a trained professional who can support and validate your experiences, help you process your feelings, and work towards finding happiness and acceptance in your life.
Remember, it's okay to feel frustrated and sad about the difficulties you're facing, but don't give up hope.
You have the right to live your life authentically, and there are people and resources available to help you along the way.
