Mystic - Thanks for the hugs, hugs back!
Flowing - I hope you're feeling better.
Divided - I think it's understandable that you forgot his b-day. You're right, you haven't been around him, not all of us have photographic memories. I hope your stepmom backs off and doesn't say anything.
Lily - I've often done the same when I was supposed to be socializing with family. Sometimes we just can't deal with it at the moment, so don't feel bad about retreating. One time I actually refused to go downstairs just so I didn't have to engage in conversation, I had my mother bring up food to my room! She told them that I wasn't feeling well. I really hope your depressive episode gets better. I'm always thinking of you, Lil.
As for myself, I'm in such pain right now because I damaged my one eye. I have no idea what I did, two days ago I rubbed it very hard and then after that, it's in immense pain, can't open my eye, and now I have a huge patch over my eye just so I can function. This is horrible. I have no idea what happened to it. I thought it would get better after being bad yesterday. But it just got worse. I'm hoping to god that it will get better in a day or so as I don't want to go to the doctor. Ugh.
Super hugs to everyone.
