    So, to start off, I didn't know if I should post this mini rant here or in the transgender group. I decided to post it here due to the main concern being my disability.
    So, I have something called Schizoaffective disorder. In short, it's schizophrenia with a mood disorder. And I'm trans. These things have nothing to do with eachother, though.

    Well... not according to my brother. I came out to him recently and thought it went well. Until he went behind my back to talk to my mother, asking if my schizophrenia could "make me think I'm a man." I was, of course, upset by this.
    Well, recently, he called me to tell me this in person and how he thought I should see a new psychiatrist because, obviously, my current psychiatrist can't be trusted because he agrees that I should start hormones. I tried telling him that I don't have a personality disorder and that I experienced dysphoria far before I ever showed syptoms of my disability, but he's persistent.
    Basically, I need help. I don't know how to get him off my case and to listen to me.
