Ashton also said she was “ostracised” from the day she returned from her gender reassignment surgery in 2019. “The reaction was surreal,” she said. “Colleagues blanked me, ignored me, they didn’t even look at me.” The stress and anxiety became so great that she believes it was the reason she lost clumps of her hair, gained four stone in weight, developed insomnia, and woke up in the night with stabbing pains in her abdomen so extreme that she wrote a “dying declaration” stating that if she died it was a “direct impact of the actions of the senior officers”.

yeah blame it all on stress rather then surgery and hormones
