Happy Birthday To Me

Today is my 48th birthday. I know that many, including myself, thought that I wouldn’t make it to this day. It has been a long and hard year marked by deep depression, two hospitalizations, and countless ECT treatments. At this point I still don’t know what I’m living for, other than the fact that I can’t allow myself to hurt the ones that I love by killing myself. I have started a Novena (Catholic Voodoo), I’ve been meditating, and doing yoga daily, and I’ve been tapping. All in the hopes of lifting the depression. I do believe that all of it is helping. I believe that acting in Faith, believing in something, trying to change, gives me hope. I have to have hope that I can do better, that I can be better, that I can function as a human being in this world. The key word there being function.

It’s a beautiful day for a birthday and my oldest sister will be hosting a party for me this afternoon. I’m looking forward to being with my family and having delicious burgers cooked on the grill – my sister makes kickass burgers! I don’t know what she puts in them but they’re damn good :). Maybe heroin. I know this is kind of assholian, but I asked my family for Amazon.com gift cards as presents for my birthday. Where do I get off asking for anything? I know. Asshole. But I’m really watching my pennies since I’m on Disability and I’d really like to buy myself some shit off of Amazon! I hope my diabolical scheme nets me some Amazon coin.

It’s hard to believe that July is pretty much half over. I just want to slowwww this summer down. Summer is my season! I’m alive! Sun, blue sky, minimal clothing….that’s the shit! I think I’ll go sit outside and smoke. One of my last vices. Yeah yeah I know. Fuck me. Oh well it’s my birthday! Taking a day off from beating up on myself. I think I’ll go get a Slurpee. Doesn’t that sound good? Hope your Sunday is outstanding. Peach out, WordPress homies!

  1. Happy Extreme Moose birthday my sweet!

    As one of my closest friends and I like to say: “fuck the fucking fuckers!”

    Hope you are having a blast!! I loooooooo slurpees….what’s your favorite flavor????

  2. I totally ask for Amazon gift cards from my dad every birthday and Christmas, mostly because he’s terrible about picking out presents. I don’t think is is a bad thing!

  3. P.$. You’ve inspired me to pursue a PhD. In Assholian studies, so I can become a bona fide Asshologist! There are plenty of crackin’ good cases out there I can study!!!

      • That’s Dr. Asshole to you, my cutie! And I used to mix Slurpee flavors long ago, i.e. lime & cherry, when i was a kid. It was so much fun!

        Hope the Q was awesome and the burgers extra yummy. And I also hope you got shitloads of Amazon loot, honey, you truly deserve it! Sending you my love and a big hug, you bodacious birthday beast!!!!!
