I am ftm and want to ask my parents about starting hormones but I don’t know how. I’m going to be 17 in a couple weeks and my mom is dead set on me waiting until I’m 18 and I know it doesn’t seem like that long but I want to start them by the time I graduate high school and I want to have my family involved in the process. My dad is pretty supportive and I know that if I talk to him about it he will be on board but I need to convince my mom. I’ve researched a bunch of stuff about hormones and I’ve talked to her about it a few times but she always brushes it off. I haven’t actually told her I want to start the process of getting hormones but I want to tell her soon. My therapist thinks that it’s the best next step for me and has offered to talk to my parents about it but I feel like this is something I need to do myself. Every time I think of talking to her about it I feel like I’m trying to come out all over again and I start to get anxious and panicky. I just want some advice for talking to her about it and if anyone has any ideas on how I could get her to listen to me or that could help convince her that it’s the right thing for me to do.
