  • Trans and Don't Know What to Do

    I'm 14 almost 15, and a trans guy my parents don't know, but they have shown how they would feel about it. I told them I was nonbinary a while ago and at first it was really great, but then they started saying that because they couldn't find anything in the Bible mentioning nonbinary people it must not be a good thing, then my grandma- she lives with us- told everyone that she was worried that being nonbinary would turn into feeling like a guy and suddenly all attempts at using the right pronouns and making me feel comfortable in my body dissappeared. I'm having a lot of panic attacks because of this and am considering self-harm I'm trying not to but it's hard to ignore the thoughts when my only real support is from my sister, who is in the same situation I am, just without anxiety and depression. I can't handle being in this house anymore but I love my parents still and I don't know what to do, please help.

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us today. Your situation sounds troubling. Unfortunately, experiencing anxiety and feeling depressed can result from trying to share your identity issues with those who do not get it, especially with people who we love and depend on. It's not unusual for parents or grandparents to take this position if they are religious and looking to the bible to confirm your choices, which is not right of them.
    Having people that you can confide in and understand and can support you is an important first step. Feeling alone, beyond your sister, is a really hard thing to go through. Here are some resources that would be good to connect to:
