My situation is similar. My 17 yo son just told me crying that he thinks he is trans. He has been isolated because covid, addicted to his computer and games; and hopefully now, that school is open, things will get better. He goes to an all boy school so there is the added need to conform to social norms. But it has been very difficult, for him who feels anxious and depressed and us as a family.

I was completely blindsided two weeks ago by my 17yo son emailing me to say he is trans and is ready for hormone replacement therapy. I’ve zero idea where this has come from. I’ve searched and searched for any signs that perhaps I missed, but have come up with nothing. He left for college in Colorado a month ago. There were no indications beforehand. He is open to meeting with a therapist but adamant about starting hormones. After reading and now searching and searching, I’ve not been able to find a therapist who won’t immediately affirm his wish to be female. I’m supporting him in that I tell him that he has my unconditional love and I will provide access to therapy. However, I don’t want him jumping into things. He seems to have done internet research but also gets lots of his information from Discord groups, which all seem to be affirming his wishes. I need help finding him a therapist who will be neutral about the gender dysphoria and actually get a good mental health assessment. He’s spend an enormous amount of time sequestered in his room over the last year and a half with COVid and virtual school. Did that contribute to this new revelation he has just shared?? Help!
