    Me Too

    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.

    so excited for another birthday that he hasn't even made an effort to celebrate or do anything for mine. I haven't had a birthday with him in years, so you'd think he would care. Even just a little.. I even told my Mom I was doing nothing for it since she asked, and she didn't...

    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.
