Unhappy Unhappy Birthday To Me...

Today is my birthday, but in no way is it a happy one. This whole week has been a very rough week; Monday was the one-year anniversary of my precious kitty's passing (Mother's Day 2017), Wednesday my step-grandma had a stroke, and today is just another year that I've spent hating myself and my life of just surviving. I live because I have to, not because I want to. Lately, my depression has been just getting to me and making me feel unwanted and unloved. I feel like I don't deserve everything I have in my life, from my unconditionally-loving family to even my bed... I never asked for this life filled with such torture and abuse. It's not fair that I have to live because other people "need" me, but yet when I need someone no one is ever there...

Aw, very sorry to hear of your struggles Unicornicopia, and I can relate to some of it as I have depression too. Keep fighting and searching for the good in life, and I'd like to wish you a Very Happy Birthday on this special day. Happy Birthday.

You are worthy and deserve love and more! People in your life are grateful you were born. You are special to them. You are doing the best you can and you have managed to battle depression another year. That is a huge accomplishment worth celebrating today!

Do you feel like same on every birthday? Including future b+day

You might need to get it all out so help would become easier for your struggles.

I think it's perfectly valid what experiencing.

Love

I do feel the same with every birthday that passes. I've tried different options with depression help but nothing seems to work. I've tried therapy, meds, doing things that used to make me happy, and even meditating. Nothing works...
