I get a little depressed around my birthday, but not for the same reason. I usually get a bit down because it seems like everyone always forgets mine.
Not that I need presents or things like that, but my husband's birthday is a little less than two weeks before mine and he gets tons of calls and messages, etc in his email box. I just hate always feeling like the only one who cares about my birthday is me.
But then, it's kind of a silly thing to get upset about I guess.
The actual birthday itself is not an issue for me. I'm not worried about getting older or anything like that.
