Hi Ashton, welcome! You'll find you are not the only trans person around on RYL, though some of us are more active than others. I know for me transitioning (whether social, medical, or whatever it looks like for you) was extremely helpful in terms of helping with my self harm, body image, and overall mental health. It was also really helpful to me to find treatment providers who were also trans or gender non conforming, and to find other trans folks I could connect with.
Do you have any support with any of this, either online or offline?
