My birthday is in 1 week and no one cares not one of my 3 kids, DH, parents or in laws. I feel horrible and so alone deep down but can't say anything. I do something for everyone's birthday but when mines comes around it's dead silence. Anyone else have these feelings?

So go make yourself a cake, put up balloons and sing Hapoy Birthday to yourself.

They treat you like you let them.

No. I specifically tell eveyone what I want to do and to have for my birthday. And if I think they are going to do it wrong I just buy the stuff myself lol

No. Only you can make you happy. Do something for yourself.

I just don't understand why people make a big fuss over their birthdays, but always complain about getting older.

Birthdays are just a celebration that you're one year closer to your death lol

No.  I haven't made a big deal about my birthday since I was a child.  My advice is to stop making a big production for bdays for the adults in your life so you are not constantly let down.  Just your kids.

Smile and be pleasant on your birthday. Before bed call your family together for a meeting. Stand there, look at them all, and calmly let them know that it’s your birthday and from now on you will be doing for them what they did for you. If they said and did nothing on your birthday you will be doing the same for them. Then wish them a good night and walk away. Follow through.

Unless your children are small, if they’re little that’s a shit thing to do.

Here’s what you do.

The morning of your birthday, get up early, pack some scanties and a toothbrush and leave the house.  Go to Starbucks until the check in time of a hotel.  Then check in and stay there until the next day and do whatever the hell you want to all day.
