I'm 15 years old and I'm transgender. I was born female, but I don't feel comfortable in my body. I'm a guy on the inside, to simplify it. I've known this since April of 2012 (I was 13) and I first told my mom in July of 2012 (I was still 13.) Since, I have emailed her over and over again and I have given her tons of resources and information, but she still will not acknowledge me as her son and she certainly won't let me transition (hormones, surgeries, etc.) All she has told me on the subject is that she feels like she's losing her daughter. I'm still me though--the same dumb kid she's always had, except I'll be a lot happier if I can do this. I can't see myself living through these next three years until I can do it without her permission. I'm sure a lot of you haven't had to deal with something like this, but do you have any advice? I don't know what to do anymore. Thank you.
