    Am I Invisible?

    I feel like I am. Today's my birthday but it may as well be an ordinary day. In fact it's worse than an ordinary day. No-one has even wished me a happy birthday. In fact, even after the receptionist has sent out an email with 'birthday wishes', no-one has said anything! I doubt...

    Crying On My Birthday

    Yes I cried almost the whole day--- my husband has hurt my feelings, because he claims I hurt him and he's just the unkind type of husband who doesn't let go the petty things... He says he regrets that he married me and all the hurtful things that his mouth is very used to utter...

    It's late and the story about the terrible

    month of my 12th birthday is so ridiculously LONG that I will summarize it up into tags. I probably didn't have the worst of the worst (mainly because I had more grace than the next person might in this situation) but "good" wasn't the best word to describe my 12th birthday...

    Birthdays Aren't For The Birthday People.

    I think one of the worst things of having the worst birthday is that you can't complain about it. You can't even let yourself show any visual signs of being uncomfortable because any sign of not enjoying yourself automatically makes you look like an unappreciative brat. Perhaps...
