Are you over the age of 21. if yes then your friends are correct and your birthday really does not matter anymore(unless you count renting a car or retirement age). You were IN THE WRONG TO DEMAND your friends explain why they didn't wish you a happy birthday. I truly hope most of them cut you off as friends. You would deserve it.
while I agree birthday's don't mean much as an adult, outside of legal liability and free stuff from some restaurants. a text, email, phone call all take like 30 seconds. what's the cost of friendship, I get if OP feels shitty that noone took 30 seconds to say something. but yes calling them up and getting upset is the wrong way to handle it by far.
Here I thought I was bad when I tell people not to say that to me on my birthday. Not that I care how old I am (46), just about the time I was 15 or so, I quit caring about my birthday. To call up friends demanding to know why they didn’t wish you a happy birthday is childish, and yes, drama queenish
Crying the whole day? Calling them all DEMANDING an explanation? Correct me if I'm wrong, but you are over the age of 12, correct? You were being a HUGE drama queen. People do have lives and it doesn't revolve around you. I have a neighbor who is 40 and cries and whines about everything and it's really super annoying. None of us care for her because of it. Stop! Grow up!
Instead of wallowing in self pity, maybe think about your birth mom as it is the anniversary of her going through the birth process of bringing you to life. Maybe how about doing random good deeds to strangers, making someone else's day a better day. Look around you, there are plenty of things to be celebrated.
