ok so I know we only have like 2 out transgender members here, but maybe there are more lurking...we certainly aren't strangers to drug use.  anyway there is a crisis line specifically for trans people called Trans Lifeline - (877) 565-8860 translifeline.org to provide knowledgeable peer support for this specific community.
