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
