The Key to Inability to Cope with Stress, Memory Loss, and, MAJOR DEPRESSION

MINERALOCORTICOID RECEPTORS in the Brain:
The Key to Inability to Cope with Stress, Memory Loss, and, MAJOR DEPRESSION
and, oh yes, the SUICIDE EPIDEMIC in the Transgender Community ! !
Why, because they are the first line of defense that allows proper coping with stress (and cortisol) in both the HIPPOCAMPUS and the AMYGDALA Below are 16 Research Publications cited. We selected only a few comments verbatim from each. Truly they are a revelation when they are read.
Brain MINERALOCORTICOID RECEPTORS- Stress and MAJOR DEPRESSION & an ALERT for TG Persons

(there is an automatic log in from Facebook available)
Introduction:
 I came across the hidden elephant in the room in all HRT and all Transgender Studies for the past two decades, the relentless and obligatory and automatic use of Spironolactone...first at the outset of any Transition..
.and, then, as mystifyingly, seemingly forever, years and years and even decades in a TG woman whose Testosterone levels were already incredibly low, and lower than most GG women.
But in this document, I have assembled some other research..that doesn't even, on the face of it, have to do with the Suicides of Transgender Folks.. But, if you bear with me, you wil see that it does.
This was what had to be done in order to understand the striking brain fog and depression and ultimately, the suicide, of so many Transgender persons.
Ultimately it came down to the Medical Profession mistreating the TG community and in fact damaging their brains to further Depression from the very start of the Medically supervised Transition that was offered.
