Today is my dad's birthday.

And I didn't even realize it. 

He died about 7 years ago. 

My parents were married until I graduated from high school. So I lived with him my entire childhood. 

He was a drunk and emotionally totally not there. He didn't do anything terrible, he just didn't have a whole lot to do with us. 

When my parents divorced we moved out of state and left him behind. I still saw him once a year until he died when I was 31. 

I didn't even realize it was his birthday until I noticed my aunt posted it on Facebook. I just cold about it. I never think about him. I guess I'm sad he died, but never really think about it. 

I am really upset that I realized I didn't even know when his birthday was. I don't know the anniversary of his death. I just never think about it. 

Is that normal?

I totally forgot! 

Unless the post had pictures of boobs, sex with animals, or something about food stamps no one in this group gives a shit. 

I wish I could post anon in a supportive group.

What's not true? 

Do you mean that all this group is for is the drama? If I posted this in any of my other groups I'd get tons of support. But I want to keep it private so I want to post anon. 

Here it gets to the third page with no replies because it's not a fun topic. 

I don't feel guilty that I forget. It just feel crappy that he means that little to me.

 Sorry. =-( Today is my dad's birthday too. I haven't seen him or spoken to him in 25yrs, my parents divorced and he never looked back. The only reason I remember his birthday is because it's also my MIL's birthday. Pretty damn sad.
