My birthday is today, 50 years old

It has always been a traumatic day in my life, only a few friends know of it. I've tried to forget it in the past but now it feels like a celebration of survival and finding a place and people who love and accept me. Letting my friends take care of me was so difficult but it's worth breaking down my walls. I've never talked this way online with people I barely know... but thanks DU.

Being 50 is not a bad thing. Just think as you get older you gain more wisdom!

14. Now we know how old you are

and we already knew, judging from your DU username, how it was you came into this world!

Happy half-century. We'll celebrate you reaching the century mark in 2069!

17. My dad wanted only one kid(one son was enough)

 

My mom wanted more. She always called me her "happy accident" with a big wink. She had two other kids too. She liked it when I rebelled against my father. She was a proud Mexican "anchor baby" and was a phd in mathematics. I think birthdays should celebrate moms too.

23. I was 50 years old once.

Dinosaurs roamed the earth once, too.

Actually, I came within hours of checking out permanently at age 52. I managed to "beat the reaper," for those who remember the Firesign Theater, and have celebrated my luck every day since. That was 15 years ago. Take it from one who is still here, but nearly wasn't. There is life on the other side of 50. Lots of it!

25. 50 is the old age of youth and the youth of old age

Which I believe was said first by Victor Hugo, but my memory isn't what it was...

Happy birthday.
