This place and it’s wonderful staff, especially Alex and Sarah, have saved my life. They are all so kind and caring although they are under the most incredible strain. I knew what I needed when I first went there 59 years after I knew I’d been “baked in the wrong oven”. From thinking nothing could help me. That I was too old, could never afford it....our amazing NHS came through. Gender dysphoria, may no longer be classed as a mental health condition. It is however a neuro diverse condition and can have very serious mental health impact. This is how they have rescued me at Porterbrook. They believed in me and are releasing this butterfly from her chrysalis..... now for the final phase, a surgeon called James to ( and no apologies for the pun) give me a hole...to make me whole.
