It is very hard to be different in India. And if you are gay and recently diagnosed with HIV, the mental pressures can be crushing. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the psychiatrists at DrSafeHands, who held my hand and saw me through my most difficult times. I am proud to be gay and am fitter than most of the population. My message to you, don't fight alone, Get Help. It can do wonders.
My gender assigned at birth is female but I am actually a male. The mental conflict to live this kind of dual life led me to depression. I got some timely help by this platform DrSafeHands, was able to speak with LGBTQ friendly doctors and understood the entire process of SRS. After my sessions, I feel much lighter and happier.
I am a trans-man facing discrimination everyday. Society is so intimidating that I wanted to do something to myself. That is when DrSafeHands counselled me. Thank you for being a friend and making me understand value of life. It will be hard to live but I will not give up.
