Hello, My name is Helen Willow palmer. I am a mtf transgender. I hope this doesn't bother any one. I have been sexually assualted twice myself, not to mention numerous beatings and torture. I have had three concusions, a broken nose amoung other things. Though these things happened over 10 years ago, I still suffer from PTSD. I had a bad experience lately with a male psychiatrist. I went into for my appointment, and requested a woman to be present, he said no. Then to make matters worse, the male therapist from next door came and stood in the door way blocking my exit. They then proceeded to tell me that for therapuedic reasons I should see male therapists from now on. They shut me in with the Dr., and I requested the door be open and they denied that. I felt affraid and cornered. The Dr. said you seem to be handling this fine, I said ya seem to, I learned not to show emotion and things because that will get you attacked by predators. It's like a deer in the head lights doesnt move or react till you hit it. I finally decided I wasn't going to take it anymore. I reported him and the therapist. Luckily the person over this region is a woman, and they are now under investigation. Thta was the first time I finally stood up for myself.

Hi Helen, you'll be very welcome at AS :)

I am sorry for the abuse and after effects that have brought you here but glad that you've found this place, it's full of lovely people who all just understand

I have to say those Psychiatrists sound appalingly intimidating and actually quite sinister :(

It's really quite something that you reported them :clap:

Am guessing that must've felt really quite empowering!

Hi Helen

And welcome, I know you will get the support here that you clearly didn't get from those hideous men. What is with the guy in the doorway that's just weird, normally you see one therapist at a time, he shouldn't have even been in the room. They can't make you be there, and if you don't feel comfortable you have every right to leave when ever you feel like it. I'm so glad you reported them they deserve it. Good for you!!!
