Life Saving Vs Life Changing

Life changing

Life saving

These phrases are tossed around I personally feel

That my trans interventions

Have changed my life for the better but

They haven’t been without consequences

We need to acknowledge as a community

That trans people

Are still at risk for suicide

After they transition, at any moment

In the arduous process much the same way

All people are at risk for suicide. We have a lot

On our minds.

I agree I think

Trans interventions are life changing

The way a proper fitting prosthetic can be

The way motorized wheelchairs save lives

Alas I am not willing

To say such a thing as

My HRT, my top surgery

These interventions are somehow

Life saving, when in fact

They changed my life

And I saved myself
