      You aren't. Birthdays are another thing to process. Another year that you have to get through. But. Think of it like this. It's another year that you have survived. Another year of strength that you have gotten through, and another to take on as a challenge to learn to be stronger and learn more coping. I'm proud of you. Good job for making it. Keep on making it.

      I get a lot of anxiety around my birthday, your feelings are completely valid. Birthdays can be stressful on the mind and can make you feel all sorts of ways. The best we can do is prepare for it since we know it’s a trigger

      I still can't believe that all iv been through I haven't gotten any smarter and im still a 22 year old at heart because life it gets harder and harder as you get older. It's more recognizeable that I'm different and it's harder to hide

      Always every year. Granted mine could be triggered by never having a good birthday but ik mine is because of mental health reasons I don't have a good birthday.

      I struggle a lot when my birthday rolls around. Leading up to it as well. You are not alone with that. Trust me.
