Going to a health professional as a member of the Queer community can be emotionally and mentally taxing. Many people have to spend more time in their appointment trying to educate the professional than receiving good, quality, healthcare.
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you."
I love this quote from Maya Angelou. Stories have power and everyone has a story to tell. As humans we crave to share parts of our life with each other and when we can't we feel silenced and often forgotten about. This is when an agony begins to shape inside.
One thing I have all my transgender, gender non-binary, LGBQ+, and youth clients do is journal, blog, vlog, letter writing, or something of this variation. I always start out by asking them to write to themselves. If they are youth I have them write to their future selves. If they are a young adult or an adult I have them write to their past and future selves.
