I am struggling a bit on my birthday as I always do. Cults teach victims to kill themselves on their birthdays

I am struggling a bit on my birthday as I always do. Cults teach victims to kill themselves on their birthdays if they are no longer being abused (or abusing). BUT each year it gets a little easier and  better. I so appreciate all the birthday wishes and caring comments. They mean so much to me! I usually try to answer each one but can’t with my torn rotator cuff. Just know that I read each one and I so appreciate it! Jean, my therapist who is like a mom to me, and who I dedicate every book to, is coming to see me; I have some gifts from my dear friend Julie in front of me (comics! Art!), and got myself a few things. And I am grateful for my books that help others, for my friends, Petal, chosen family, and all of you.
.
Also I am grateful for speech-to-text! It helps a lot.
