    Me too. And it's almost always been that way. I used to go to the bank on my birthday to make a withdrawal, hoping the teller would see my birthday on my ID and say something. Sometimes they would, sometimes they wouldn't.

    Tomorrow is one of those landmark b-days. I am turning 30. I always felt that at 30 you should be an adult. I don't feel like an adult. I guess I don't mind doing things on my own, but I always wish I could celebrate with others and have people be happy for me. Every year is the...

    I guess it was too much to ask for anyone, even my family, to spend my birthday with me. All I really wanted was for someone to be here.
