Transgender name change

I'm a trans guy, so born female and now identify as male and I've had an account for quite a while, but it has my deadname on it. I've just made this new account so I could use my new name and I have to confirm my identity and details with Paypal, but don't have any ID with my new name on it apart from my birth certificate. Honestly, I'm tempted to just not use Paypal anymore, as seeing my old name on my old account takes an emotional and mental toll on my health. But it's the only account I can use due to not having any way to confirm that my name is Alex (other than my birth certificate that's stored in a place I can't remember).  
Honestly, until Paypal becomes more trans-inclusive, I'll have to find another way to sort out birthday presents and transferring money between friends, as we can't hand around money due to this pandemic.
