family can be a pain when you don't get to pick them.

> Isnt family supposed to be something that supports you?

well... it's supposed to be mutual.

so... sometimes you want them to suck it up, and do what you want. and othertimes... to be fair... you gotta suck it up, and do what they want. maybe... for a day. if possible. on a special occasion. like, maybe, a person's birthday. there are social norms around birthdays.

i don't know how things are in your family.

does your father do nice things for you, on your birthday? does the girlfriend?

if they do... then i think that does mean you should try and suck it up for one day, if at all possible.

on the other hand... throwing up twice and missing a week of work sounds like a lot of stress, yeah. that's a pretty huge birthday present...
