I Hate Being Alone On My Birthday

    I hate being alone. especially on important

    days. I think I've had to make my own cake for three years now. Everyone always forgets. This year my parents went out bowling with my brother. My friends completely forgot. apparently they thought it was in November. Lies.

    One of my biggest fears is being alone. Because when I'm alone I have to listen to what's going on inside me head, that scares me.
