I struggle with alot of anxiety and depression within my self and society. I come from a very abusive background. I’ve also struggled with my identity for years on years. I’m a 28 year old trans man and transitioning has been my most terrifying struggle I’ve experience in my life. But I couldnt be more proud that I’ve made it this far. On my own. Having no support has been a struggle but I promised myself to not let it stop me from being who I am and who I identify as
You have courage beyond anyone I know, and it takes more so than I know to have taken the steps you have taken. Be yourself and do not let anyone else tell you otherwise. Being alone without support is a hard thing but remember you have us. You are not alone in this battle nor will you ever be. Keep that head up high and push forward.
I’m sorry that you’re dealing with this, but, I’m so glad that you are able to feel proud of yourself, that is HUGE. I know how it feels to be going through things and not having any support - I don’t have physical support around me, and have only been a member of this community for a little over a year - before that, I went through everything on my own. No one wanted me. I have found a family here in the community though, and we want you to come and be a part of that family. We will support you, and help you however we can to make this less scary.

Congrats on how far you have come. I am sorry you are struggling I too am a trans man and I remember so much of the struggles. I also have struggled with the idea of finding myself. It sucks when so many do not agree with how you identify and how you feel about yourself. I know for me personally I hate being misgendered and that makes finding myself so much harder. I dont know what you do in these moments but perhaps come up with things people have told you about yourself that are trusted. I know that for me I have a list of notes from loved ones that helps me to see that I am seen as who I am. Just those reminders of hey this is you. I will gladly be a support. Have you looked into any transgender groups in your area. I know in my own state we have a transgender spectrum group that is amazing.
Hold fast and keep remember who you are.
