Hello, clarice star, and welcome. Your account has been activated.

I'm sorry to hear about your son accessing hormones online at the young age of 15. This is so scary. Age 15 is simply too young to consent to this medication, to realize the damage he could be doing to his male body with estrogen. And yes, ASD and mental health issues are seen over and over in this population, as you have witnessed in your career.

I invite you to post this introduction in our members-only area, as this public portion of the forum isn't visited too much by our members. You'll find support, advice and discussion there from like-minded parents in similar situations.

Welcome. You are not alone.

Hello, Yukon and welcome. Your membership has been activated.

I'm sorry to hear about your son and how it happened "out of the blue." That is very much the case with just about all of us. Every individual is different and has their own story, of course, but what was once rare is now quite common. There seems to be a social contagion going on.

Welcome. You are not alone.

I asked her about it and found out she has been taking hormones without my knowledge. It has been devastating and until her friends started transitioning, she was not dysphoric at all.

Hi justamom77 and thanks for your patience. Your account has now been activated.

I am so sorry to hear about what is happening with your daughter. What a shock to learn through social media. I am so sorry.

Welcome to the forum. You are not alone.

Hi, Twinmom. Your account has been activated so you now have access to the members-only area. I hope you'll find the forum helpful.

Once your account has been activated you will be able to access the forum & other parents going through the same.  I’m sure Admin will authorise soon.

Thanks so much for responding to our newest member, Jdmum.

No problem Marge.  If I’m on & see new members I’d rather say hi & your account will be activated than them think they have nobody to talk to & no help x
