Name Changed though this in itself might out me .

It's my Birthday yay me & as per usual my Dh , My mum & all siblings just don't bother to even get me a card never mind a present the most ill get is a 'Happy Birthday' on Facebook & that's it & its the same every year , even as a child .
It's not that I want presents its the principal of it .
I'd love to have a night out with friends to celebrate or even have a few friends round but I can't so ill just spend yet another day wishing it would all go away .
I even asked if I could go to my mums tomorrow in hope that any one if them had got me a card but they are all to busy to see me .
The worse part is having to answer my Ds's (4) questions as to why I have no presents it cards .
I feel completely unreasonable for feeling this way & maybe I should just grow up .
AIBU or do I really deserve better confused

My dh has a sister like that. Everyone just seems to accept she doesn't do cards or pressies, ever. (Dh says on the odd occasion she did buy pressies when he was younger they would be deliberately crap for comedy value!)

Maybe arrange something with just you and Dh etc when he isn't working. Cinema or takeaway?

And next year plan ahead. Make sure you get a treat on the day.

My dh's birthday is 2 days after Xmas but I always make sure I have got cards for him from me and the dc's well in advance. I also make sure that he has presents to open too. He had some crappy birthdays as a child so I like to think we make them a bit better as an adult.

Thanks qod but I'm up on the North Coast

I don't think your DH has any excuse. Your birthday is on the same day every year, so when he did have time off, he could have bought something a month, 2 months in advance, it just takes a little planning.

Him saying he won't use the internet is, IMO, him saying he doesn't really care enough to bother, even if he can't get time off.
