Without going in to too much detail my DS went through a messy break up with DIL during lockdown a year ago. He has now ‘come out’ as being trans/bi, and while I do support him in his choices it is really hard for me to understand and come to terms with. He lives 200 miles away so I don’t see him often, but since he went home after a recent visit I have barely slept. His mental health is poor and I worry an awful lot.
So I guess two slightly different questions:
Has anyone had experience of their child coming out like this, or does anyone know of any organisations/support groups that would help me as his parent?
How can I support my own mental health?
