Dealing with emotional isuues of my partner

About a month a go my partner told me that she wanted to trans to male. Being her partner I'm providing as much support as I can. But it's difficult, because I don't know everything she's going through. One minute she'll be fine and then the next minute she'll be super upset. I don't always know what to do when this happens and sometime I don't feel like I can keep up with what she's feeling.

When we have sex she sometimes ends up extremely frustrated with herself due to lack of equiptment below the belt. I'm not exactly sure how to help there either, because she doesn't want to use a strap on. Her reasoning is it wouldn't be the same as if it were actually real.

I'm just really stressed with not know how to deal with everything. I feel really helpless, to be honest. And that helplessness doesn't sit well with me at all. I want to help, but sometimes I just don't see a way to help her through. Does anyone have any advice?
