Medical Self-Education?
For several reasons, such as

* My ongoing struggles with chronic illness

* My past ignorance of transition

* Many people losing access to healthcare if Republican plans go through

I think I’m going to need to know more about medicine to take care of myself, and I don’t think I’m alone in this need.

For other reasons, such as

* Side effects of drugs and supplements

* Persistence of abusive treatments for queer and autistic kids

* Outbreaks of disease in under-vaccinated areas

* Growth of the police state and prison state with the drug war

I think we'd mostly be better off if we knew more about medicine.
