to feel like no one cares

So today is my birthday. I haven't done anything for it as we are going to a show next week. In the morning I realised that I was getting a uti so I went to the walk in centre. A uti was confirmed and I was given antibiotics.
When I came home I didn't get any sympathy.
I also posted about it on fb (know I shouldn't have) and not one person responded.
Aibu to feel pissed off especially with dh.

YANBU if he didn't do or say anything about it, that'd be a bit shit.

Hope you're feeling better soon though.

Happy birthday Flowers

YANBU to be upset that your DH hasn't made any effort.

YABU to post about a UTI on fb it's a pet hate of mine when people check in at the doctors etc.

Hope you have a better time next week at the show :)

Happy Birthday Flowers

I'm sorry your DH was unsupportive. Try to ignore FB, people arw rubbish on there. x

You posted about a UTI on facebook Shock Hmm

It isn't that they don't care, they probably just have no idea what to say!!!

How dreadfully attention seeking!

Why do your 157 facebook friends need to know about the inner workings of your urinary tract?

Your dh is a different matter.

I'm sorry your husband hasn't acknowledged your birthday :(

Happy Birthday Flowers

Thank you. Just mentioned that I felt crap. Didn't do whole check in thing. Guess it probably was a bit attention seeking.

Did acknowledge birthday. Just no sympathy re feeling crap. Going to have duvet day with dc tomorrow.
Only have about 30 friends on there. Just close friends and family.

You're an adult, you get bugger all sympathy as an adult IME. You kind of just have to suck it up. Sorry, but it's a YABU from me.

Gosh, people are mean here!

Happy birthday Edinbuirgh. I try to live my life by the motto 'You get treated the way you feel you deserve to be treated'.

You should kick some ass here. Remember you can always have a deferred birhtday celebration if you feel awful today.
