AFFIRM groups have a presence of other openly / visibly trans people, in person. Just being able to see and interact with other trans people is huge for me.
I really appreciated having a space to talk about the intersectionalies of my identities.
I try to think more about helping myself and taking my mental health as serious as my physical health. I try to apply some of the ways of relaxing or being mindful to my everyday life, that I learned from AFFIRM and it works from time to time and it's relieving to see that.
