    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...

    Anyone else get just miserable on their

    birthday? Always end up being more depressed than usual, for a bi-polar person anyway. Every year without fail, just sadness on a day most people are happy on.

    I Hate My Birthday

    I enjoy celebrating other people's birthdays, I just don't like celebrating mine. I hate the attention and buy myself whatever I want or need. I usually make my own cake too. I also hate having a birthday in January right after the holidays (which I hate too). One year I moved my...

    My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks

    and I'm dreading it. I'll be 22 and I haven't accomplished anything important all year. I feel like you celebrate when something good happens to you like a promotion or you're engaged or your family member came back from the army. It shouldn't be to celebrate being a year older...

    Time Passes By So Fast

    I hate this time of year when my birthday comes. I don't have any spectacular plans. I won't be going out. More than likely, I will be reflecting on goals that I haven't accomplished and compare myself to others. I feel that birthdays are just a reminder that one's time on this...

    Today is my 18th birthday.

    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...

    To b honest, i never felt happy with my so-called special day. And no, 9/11 has nothing to do with this. But... all my teen and late teen birthdays were bad. My 21st was the worst. After that, i never wanted to do anything on my so-called special day. I would rather pay solute...

    I think my husband has forgotten my birthday.

    He didn't say happy birthday, said he has no plans for tonight, wants to know what's for dinner. I am so annoyed and sad. I don't have anyone in this area I can talk to. The only people that remembered my birthday is my mom, brother and one son...Feeling alone!

    too much pressure to be happy, and too much to organise. I guess it goes a bit deeper than that..

    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...

    When I was 8 years old,

    I consider it as one of the worst days in my life. My birthdays were never celebrated. It's not going to be celebrated in future also. Because no one knows when my birthday is. Only my parents know. I never got any birthday gifts ever. So, on my 20th birthday, I ordered a gift...
