To feel gutted I have spent my birthday alone and with no birthday wishes..

Today is my birthday and it's been dreadful, I only have a handful of " friends" ( lost a lot of " friends" after I got diagnosed with a Chronic illness) and I see family when it suits them.

AIBU to feel gutted that i have not received one " Happy Birthday" and after inviting family over for a catch up and a slice of cake no one has turned up?

Or should I just brush it off and get on with it because I am a grown adult and birthdays are no longer important?

Currently sat here feeling sorry for myself with a take away and a very large slice of cake.

This has made me quite sad, OP. Especially that they didn't turn up.

Happy birthday, add some gin with the takeaway and cake. flowers

Well that's a bit shit and I'm not surprised you're pissed off. Happy birthday! Fuck 'em.

Happy Birthday.
Be sure not to wish your family members Happy Birthday in future.

They didn't even let you know why they weren't coming?

It's ok to feel a sorry for yourself. You feel how you feel but don't dwell on it. Watch something or do something that cheers you up a bit.

Happy birthday smile
Enjoy your cake

What a nasty shock for you, I'd be very upset too. Happy birthday from me to you! Don't blame you on the take away and cake! What dinner did you get? I'm very stressed today I think I will crack open some wine shortly wine

Happy Birthday! Enjoy your takeaway and cake all to yourself. Put a box set/Netflix on and have a mooch around here. You have the bonus of not making small talk with people and can drink wine in your Jammies! smile
What takeaway did you get?

Happy birthday.

Yanbu. I had a really shitty birthday this year too. It's the pits but i decided i will never put myself through it again. Birthdays are the same as any other day from now on.

Oh Lonely, I'm so sorry.

Happy Birthday to you. I wish I could send you more than virtual wine and cake

sad people can be rubbish. It's not a measure of who you are.

Happy birthday flowers enjoy your takeaway and cake!

Happy birthday to you!

I'm sorry it's a totally shit way for family and friends to behave.

Spoil yourself tonight and I hope your cake and take away is delicious.

Happy birthday!! Order yourself a nice takeaway, have a bath and watch your favorite film - treat yourself cake

Happy Birthday. It is a bit crap. Next year will be better, you won't invite them and you will go and do something you want to do xxx
