This is one of those “I hate to ask, but holy shit things have a chance of getting very bad, so I’d better ask” kind of deals. On another board I post at, there’s a transgender member who lives in Mississippi who broke her neck while on the job at Walmart. At present, she’s in the hospital, doped up on a huge amount of drugs, and it is iffy if she’s going to be able to have a normal life. Her family isn’t at all supportive of her deciding that “he is a she” and my main concern is that the combination of shithead family and overwhelming debt due to medical bills is going to lead to her committing suicide once she gets of out the hospital.
If anyone is in the area and knows of a group who supports LGBTQ individuals and can pass that information on to me, I’d be eternally grateful. Indeed, any advice would be helpful, because I’m given to believe that the rest of her family is so twisted in their mindset that they think folks like Rush Limbaugh are flaming liberals.
