Haha getting money as a present is always fun. :) Since turning 28 it hasn't hit me as of yet probably because it doesn't bother me really but then again it may hit me later on who knows really?

I was in the middle of depression for my 24th birthday last year. I look forward to 25.

My Birthday this year is this Thursday and I will be 28 and to me thats a big deal and I am so anxious, I feel like I am a year older and still haven't accomplished anything since leaving high school.

Any of you ever feel this way?
Happy birthday for last week.

I turned 28 this year too. I hate my birthday, it has always been upsetting and disappointing, each year wondering how abandoned I'm going to feel this year, is my dad actually going to call this time or just send a text or nothing at all. Will anyone remember? Etc. This year I thought I would prepare myself and make sure that I had absolutely no expectations of the day at all, and that way anything that made it even slightly better than the average day was a bonus.

HOLY CRAP did that blow up in my face big time. I was 1. in a ton of pain recovering from a very recently performed surgery which 2. was on my gallbladder which restricted me to a very bland diet (so no cake :() 3. spent the first half of the day having to get some invasive medical tests done after what was supposed to be a checkup 4. spent the rest of the day sick as hell because I ate something too adventurous for my recovering digestive tract. Then to top of that god awful nightmare (by this stage its only about midday) my grandparents called me, and my grandad, who has never ever been mean or angry at me was really getting at me about why my fiance and I aren't married yet, accusing me of being a liar because we said we were going to do it last year, despite him knowing that i have been coping with 3 years of hell dealing with a diagnosis of epilepsy (which was WRONG) and this year going through wicked withdrawl from the antiseizure meds then actue gallstones catching it just in time to stop me getting pancreatitis as well as a mystery illness that left me (and still is) unable to work or really function at all. Then he was taking digs at me about that until I mentally couldn't handle his abuse anymore and hung up. So do I like birthdays? No way

No joke, what I started doing past my late teens was convincing myself my new age was
6 months prior to my birthday. It helps give a dose of urgency and a new-found appreciation of my remaining youth.

Hmmm how interesting. Now that I am 28, everyone around me is just throwing in my face that I am going to be 30 and still useless.

I turned 28 this month, but what I always do is lie about my age, I tell everyone I am 24 or even younger lol. If you look young and act young, then shed some years off your actual age, you are not hurting anyone by doing that.
