Does this person also mention the now-ridiculous wait times to get an appointment to see an endocrinologist for their diabetes?

My stepson's mom was once 20 minutes late bringing him to an appointment (t1d), and we had to wait another four months to get him seen.

The waiting room was filled with trans propaganda and several 'trans-kids'.

I guess there’s more money is giving male children female hormones and female children male hormones. I mean c’mon the doc has to get the money to buy his second yacht SOMEWHERE!

*this is firmly tongue in cheek. The vast majority of endos are in it because they love how fucked up the endocrine system is, the money is just the icing on the cake.

I would lose my god-damn mind. It’s already incredibly difficult to find a good endo who truly understands type 1 diabetes and how to help kids and families manage it well. It’s bad enough having to fight the type 2’s for appointments. My husband is type 1, and I fear having to deal with this should one of our future children get diagnosed.
