That's horrible 😞 have they gone to the police?
Maybe you should allow someone to help you instead? Sounds like you a re doing a lot for others and not enough for yourself?
Have you ever spoken about why binding is important to you? Or about being transgender? People who never had to deal with questions about it, it is probably very strange. Talk about your feelings, without getting angry or judgemental.
It is a difficult topic, for both of you. Don't forget she is from a different generation. I understand you want to move forward and take action, but maybe it is better to talk things through with her first?
yeah, i've talked to her about it. it would be weird also because i'm not fully transgender, i'm nonbinary and occasionally feel really dysphoric or masculine and other days not so much. i don't know if i'm in a proper position to bind...
because i feel like i'd be taking away from actual trans people if i did.
Don't think about others. What is important is how you feel. You don't have to be transgender to have the need to bind. If your mum is having difficulty accepting it, would it be an idea to bind and wear something loose? You know what is underneath
But your mum isn't really confronted with it? It might be hard for her as well. She surely wants the best for you, but being non binary is a bit difficult to understand for a lot of people. She might need more time
yeah, i might talk to her about it. thanks everyone <3
Good luck, thinking of you
I like Ezra and Odie.
And some days will be bad, and some days will be good, and some days will be far, far better than you could even imagine. Just have to get to them...
thanks for your kindness <3
