    I was an unplanned child and,

    while I get that unplanned doesn't mean unwanted, I'm reminded every year on my birthday that I'm just a missed pill and a broken condom. My loving boyfriend wants to change my feeling over my birthday but, I don't know that he can...I just have bad experiences when my...

    It's my birthday today,

    and I don't care! It's me 22nd birthday today! Big frigging deal! All it means is I've gone through another year failing to die! All it means to me is I've been a burden on my family for 22 years today!

    My grandmother died on my 21.

    birthday in my former child's room. To see her, lying there, is burnt in my memory.

    I'm 27 this yesterday

    and I hate my birthday...it's because I'll end up with loneliness and sadness and crying at the end of that day...why did I cry? Because nothing happens....when I was a kid, I never had a birthday party..it's just that my parents do not like birthday party, so I assume that I...

    I hate the attention, I hate receiving presents and not able to give them, I hate stress or trouble, although I also worry if I will be forgotten again. But I can't complain because I don't even appreciate the things I do have already! You know that feeling of pointless? The...

    Birthdays are just so sad sometimes.

    I feel extra bitter on my birthday. I want to spend it with my brothers and cousins but it's like my plans with them never go through. Today was my birthday but it was one of the most awful birthdays I've ever had. I had work and no one acknowledged or even remembered it was my...

    My birthday is coming up soon.

    I'm more sad about it than usual because instead of just "feeling" like I'm getting "old"- I actually am. Getting old. I haven't known what to do with my life for the past 28 years. I'm terrified I won't ever know, no matter how old I get.

    This might sound like a sob story by the end

    but I don't mean it to. I don't want peoples pity. I'll ignore anyone that is unnecessarily horrible. My entire life has been about everyone else. My birthdays have been marked in small sense but generally forgotten about. By that I mean "close" people have bought me gifts but...

    A birthday really is just another day

    and I think you come to learn that when people ignore it enough. I was a lucky kid, I had parents who never forgot my birthday because it was the same day as their anniversary. But, my luck ran out as I got older. Its one thing for your parents to always remember but its another...

    It comes faster than you think

    and it's really just another f****** ordinary day of the year. The celebration is just more time to waste. Who cares that I'm getting older?

    When I was 8 years old,

    my mother told me I was a mistake and the product of a cheap bottle of wine. She blamed me because she had such a hard time delivering me. She also informed me that my younger sister was planned and hoped that somehow, I wouldn't have made it. My bio-father used to beat on me...

    One year ago on my 17th birthday, my grandpa died of pneumonia. After I got the news that he died, I had to spend the rest of the day at someone else's birthday party, surrounded by a bunch of old people who only reminded me of my dead grandpa. It was torture. And my birthday...

    Well, not me... but my IB History teacher tells

    us all the time that he hates his. He was born on Christmas, so every birthday, his parents would only get him Christmas presents; he would never get extra presents for the fact that it was his birthday, too. I'm glad my birthday is far enough away from Christmas, so that's...

    A party takes so much planning,

    it's expensive, and it is so busy with a lot of impressions. They are really tiring and the presents make up only little of it. I'm glad I had the visitors yesterday already so I can have my birthday today in peace on my own, in my birthday suite, relaxing all day without any...

    for it to be honest. All I really ever want to do is get black out drunk and just pretend that I'm not getting older. I mean I'm nearly 20 Now. Just can't be done with it anymore.

    Another Year and No One Cares....

     My birthday is coming up in less than a week and to say the least I'm not excited. Just another year of being unappreciated and ignored. I usually spend the couple months before my birthday looking forward to it, but about a week before I realize that it isn't going to come...
