Well I agree with most of what you guys are saying, except perhaps that transexualism is a mental disorder. Not sure about that. But I do certainly agree about the very high rate of suicide- higher than any other group of people. And then there are the few that regret. Most physicians and medical centers that perform sex change require that the candidate live for a full year in their chosen gender- that means live, work, integrate into society. This is carefully monitored, like probation, to make sure the candidate will be successful. But many avoid this preferring the "'do it yourself" method with occasional hops to Mexico for surgery. I think these are the ones most likely to regret or take their lives.
