I am writing this to tell you about a problem I've been dealing with since childhood. For years I have attempted to deal with this problem unsuccessfully. It is to the point where it is causing me much anxiety, and you deserve to know. I cannot continue holding this in and hiding the issue. This is very difficult for me to write and tell you, but you need to know, because I love you. For all of my life I have had a gender issue. I have always hid the feelings hoping it would go away. I have always thought I should have been born female. I never wanted to be this way, I just want to be happy. I want to be happy for you, and for redacted and redacted. I am keeping this short intentionally, I just want to inform you of the problem I am having and why I have been noticeably bothered for the last few months. I am asking for your support to help me through this issue. Please feel free to ask me any questions you have.
