Many of my posts to TiSP revolve around the hypocrisy of how trans sober people are treated in the healthcare industry. I’ve personally have been denied surgery just for being at my optimal BAC (around .22), have had multiple doctors ridicule and drunk shame me when I tell them about my condition, and am discriminated against by insurance companies for merely trying to get them to help pay for the alcohol my body needs to be healthy. Never mind doctors completely ignoring the genetic causes of fatty liver syndrome and cirrhosis and routinely denying trans sober people liver transplants unless they stop drinking the alcohol their body needs. But I digress.
The hypocrisy of it all really hit for me home while watching the Olympics. I mean, the established medical community has the audacity to judge me for my behaviors I have no control of, but practically worships the unhealthy lifestyle of these so called “athletes”. Just today, for example, I witnessed a skier break their rib cage from a fall on a practice run. Even though choosing to ski in such dangerous conditions is purely a choice, and completely avoidable, I bet his injury will be covered by his insurance plan, UNLIKE THE ALCOHOL I NEED TO BE HEALTHY YOU FUCKING SHIT LORDS.
