i guess a little backstory is needed first..

i'm trans, more specifically androgynous or just trans-masculine.
i go by he/him/his/himself and they/them/their/themself pronouns and have done so for at least four years.

i basically shut myself in after the Trump inauguration, i'm supposed to be in college by now but i'm absolutely terrified of facing anyone.
i was bullied relentlessly in high school and now that the new trans-bathroom policy is being flailed around like something to be proud of, i've been more reluctant to leave than ever.
i haven't transitioned yet, so i'm still seen as female and it gives me the worst dysphoria, i just don't want to relive high school all over again.

if you're trans, like me, what would you recommend? i don't have any healthy coping mechanisms.

I'm sorry to hear about your circumstances and so sorry that your country has become increasingly unsafe. Unfortunately I am neither trans nor living in the US so I really can't give you advice. I don't really know any healthy coping mechanisms either...

Were you already enrolled in college? Have you notified your professors about your absence? To avoid falling too much behind I'd certainly let college know about your circumstances - without giving too much detail if you're not comfortable with that. That's the only thing I can think of right now, sorry.
