So, a friend of mine just came out and told me that he's been living in the wrong body, and that he hasn't felt like himself since he was a kid. Turns out he's wanted to undergo the surgery to become a woman. This took me by surprise because I've always thought he was straight. I mean, I had always hoped he'd be into guys cause I used to like him, but I never would have seen THIS coming. He said he feels like a woman stuck in a man's body, and that he still likes women but has other needs, too. I've only known for two days now, but we've been talking a lot about it since then. Through text messages, I can't even tell that it's him anymore, and I'm starting to miss him already. But at the same time, I'm happy for him because he's finally going to be able to feel comfortable and happy. I've assured him that I'd stick by his side through out all of this, but I can't help but to feel a little sad that my friend isn't really there anymore.
