Hi Janey Girl

I can identify with you. I lost both parents to cancer when I was 20. On my 21st birthday I was living alone. I had recently broken up with my boyfriend and at the time I think I was out of work. I remember walking down the street feeling awful because no one sent me a card. I had a married brother, quite a few aunts and uncles, all of who knew my address and knew I was alone.

Then, I happened to meet a stranger, a guy about my age. I told him it was my 21st birthday and I was all alone. He invited me to his home with his parents, brothers and sisters. They sang happy birthday to me and had a cake with candles. I was so touched! By the way, I tried a relationship with him, but it didn't work out.

What I'm trying to say is that shit happens. All throughout our lives. Don't depend on anyone to get you though the day. Just depend on yourself. By coming here and speaking out to strangers, you are doing that and finding help, friendship and love where you don't expect it.

I was stunned when I didn't get a card from my family that day. But it helped me grow. I learned not to depend on others. But you never know what good you will find out in the world. It's not all bad. Not always.

Happy Birthday Janey Girl
