Just feeling sad and need to whine/vent.

Today would have been my sixth wedding anniversary, Saturday is my 35th B-Day, and then Mother's Day on Sunday.

I'm newly single after being with my xSO for a year and a half which has been tough. I have a well paying job (healthcare) but feel trapped and can't do what I really want to do (law enforcement) due to my age, having to work full-time while doing it, job market, etc. This all compounds the fact that my B-Day is Saturday and I'm not where I thought and hoped I'd be. Here I'm single, older, and a single parent to 4 yr old twins with an XH who lives two states away and doesn't see his children. That's the short version.

My family doesn't celebrate B-Days (or Mother's Day or any holidays for that matter), I have no SO and my children are young. Sometimes it's nice to just get a card for your B-Day and Mother's Day just to know you're thought of! Ya know? At least I'll get some B-Day wishes on Facebook though.

Maybe I'll take myself shopping for a B-Day present!

I know things can always be worse but this is still hard. Sorry for the whiney vent.

Me - Now 36 y/o
WXH: Now 45 y/o and 18+ hrs away -NPD asshole now onto wife #3.
My sweeties: 5 yr old B/G twins. 90% custody (or more) since 14 months old.
D-Day 4/4/10 PA('s?) & EA's - D'd 7/11

I always buy myself presents; I've done it for years.

You should try it

I hope you feel better soon.

You are important and you matter. Your feelings matter. Your voice matters. Your story matters. Your life matters. Always.

The story doesn't really matter anymore. Time is a great healer. Life is good.

You should totally treat yourself to a little something! Why not do something like a charm bracelet or one of those Pandora type ones where you can add to it; so what if it's 'from you, to you' you damn well deserve it!! Wouldn't it be neat to look back on it and remember?! Do it!

Happy early birthday and Mother's day!

So not whiny, GM...just normal!
