Hi I am the mom of a 26 year old woman who recently decided she is a trans man. I know this is older, which makes it seem like it could be real for her but this just isn't her. She has completely cut us off. I feel like we have lost her forever and honestly she has been so awful for the last several months that I think our relationship is permanently damaged. We think she will never contact us or speak to us again. How did this happen?

I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter having to deal with detransition but glad she is moving into acceptance of herself. You may be the first parent of a detransitioner (rather than a desister) that we've had join, although there are many members who prefer to read rather than post, so it is hard to say with any accuracy how many other parents of detransitioners are here.

Regardless, I am certain our members would welcome you and would love to hear your and your daughter's stories, and learn from your experience. Your experiences and your story will be valuable to the board if you feel comfortable sharing them at some point.

Hello Marge.  Thank you very much for the welcome. I will gladly share my story and answer any questions anyone has on where we’ve been and where I hope we are headed.  I want to do what I can especially if I can help others in any way I can.

Hello. I am looking for support from parents who have a child (young adult) who is detransitioning after having been on hormones and had top surgery. My child is now just realizing that transitioning was not the answer to years of suffering from complex and undiagnosed mental health issues. I am devastated at the pain and suffering my child has endured for so many years, though as a parent I am keeping a brave face and doing everything I can to be strong and to support her. Thank you for this community.

In the meantime hello & welcome.  I have a 20 year son going through this.

No problem Marge,  I’m on every day & I know there’s time differences for us all.  I just always feel the need to welcome anyone who is unfortunately going through this.  Hope it’s ok to post before their account has been activated x

It is absolutely OK and I appreciate you taking time to welcome new members who may need a kind word or some virtual hugs.
I know how it feels to be in this stressful strange place x
