PS If you want to know how to make sure your birthday comes up on the calendar here is what to do.

At the top left of your screen you will see something called UserCP. Click into this and options come up to change your original profile.

On the left hand (under Control Panel) click into Edit your Details. This brings up a screen in the centre. The second section down has a heading:

Optional Information - All information will be viewable by other forum members.

In that section you will see Date of Birth. Make sure you enter the correct date of birth and directly under that there is a thing called Privacy. Click the little arrow on the right of this and choose 'Display Age and Full Date of Birth'.

Then MAKE SURE you scroll down to the bottom of the page and select the little box on the end which says 'SAVE CHANGES'. Hey Presto! Your birthday should then appear on the Calendar.

Hi Bridie,

I am so sorry to hear about your sister. These things do tend to hit us more at birthdays and times when everyone expects us to be celebrating.

Sending lots of gentle, healing hugs :grouphug2: and, of course, massive birthday wishes...

HAPPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIDIE!!!!

Oh Bridie, I'm very sorry to hear about your sister. I also lost a sister at age 43 from Hepatitis C from plasma that she received for her immunology disease. Life is not fair.

I understand when you have lost a loved one, it doesn't seem right that we should be celebrating while they are gone. I'm not sure how old you are, but I was afraid that I wouldn't make her age. Ironically, I was 42 when I had the blood clots and fluid on the lung which led to the diagnoses of Lupus. I remember my goal was to make it to my 43rd birthday. I thought if I make it I would be okay. And I was. I guess I'm just illustrating all the werid things that go through your head. Same thing when my brother died at age 23. You too, will be okay. It never goes away, but it hurts a little less as time goes on.

It's okay to celebrate. It's okay to think about yourself. Yes, acknowlegde your loss and know that your sister is with you in spirit. Then celebrate by doing something for yourself. I also hope that your family comes through for you. It won't be the same, but you can still start a new tradition(s) maybe.

I wish you all the best Bridie and I hope you have the best birthday possible. :dust: :birthday:
