Birthday blues

Sep 08, 2017 11:14 PM

It's silly but I am super bummed out. It's my 27th birthday, and I am having the worst pain day in weeks. It's been a "good day" in most regards but being in pain is making it super hard to enjoy and that is making me really grumpy. I'm kinda mad, but with nothing to be mad at but fate or luck or whatever decides on random days to give me breakthrough pain. If people weren't trying to make it a special day I could deal easier, but I don't want to ruin the fun or seem ungreatful. Anyone relate?

I can definitely relate! I always feel super bad on birthdays as people make so much effort and I feel like I let them down when I can't do things! Try to just enjoy what you can Xx
