My 18 yo daughter has been very stressed to the point of being suicidal this month. My 15 yo son (birthday this weekend) just told me he thinks he's trans. I don't really have a problem with it, but I know that there is going to be a lot of stress/turmoil because of it. I just feel like I'm at the end of my capabilities to function as a parent. I haven't been on here much, but I need to talk somewhere.

@VickiW Oh, Vicki, I'm so sorry that this is going on! I really can't imagine how tough that must be. Seeing your daughter hurt like that is so hard, and it's scary to know that the world may be cruel to your son. I'm off work next week. If you want to try to get together, for lunch or something, send me a direct message. (My son will be 16 this weekend, too! My daughter is 13, and I can so identify with the feeling of being at the end of the parenting capabilities!)
