God, how to start?
I'm not really a girl. I know I look like one, but it's all a horrible mistake.
Every day I try to hide it, but I'm so tired. I don't want to hide it. I don't think I can much longer.
So what I want, Dad, is a sex change. They won't let me have one until I go to counselling, but that's okay. I don't mind that. I've got nothing to lose.
Dad, I've got a girlfriend. 'Cause I'm a boy. Only, she doesn't know.
But, Dad. If I have the operation, she need never know.
Dad, I love her. So much.
