30 was the big one. All I can say is some things get worse and some things get better. I promise the older you get the faster time passes.
I am revisiting this answer at 65....when I received my Medicare card, that was sobering ! I won't forget it....that is, if I can remember !

Thirty was hard for me too. I'm 42 now and have come up with a reason(for me) that any birthday would suck. I have quit thinking that by the time I am(say 50) I will be"" or have"". I have no set time to be or do anything, it is what it is. There is no let down if I don't make the mark(if that makes sense).I also celebrate my birthday with gifts for my mom...it was after all her birth- day. It was she who went through hell alone those days as the dads weren't allowed in the birthing room.It is quite fun to plan a way to surprise your parents with something they are not expecting. When I was born my dad ate my mom's dinner at the hospital because I was being born, so I am going to try and find out what the meal was and have it delivered to their home for dinner that night. This year I sent flowers with a big"It's a girl" balloon attached. They thought the florist had made a mistake...it was quite funny. Anyways celebrate your life and savour the good days.

This question has been around for a while, but it's a good one.
40 was really depressing for me and who knows why. The whole decade was miserable for me.
When the 50th arrived, I was overjoyed and feel this decade has been much better.
60 is next March.....I am dragging my feet on that one.
THE MOST MEMORABLE, however, was when my best friend's sister turned 25 (we were about 14) and was upset because she was now a quarter of a century old. WOW. That was OLD!

None. Birthdays to me have always been just another day (at least after I became an adult). Age is a state of mind. I never look at myself as a number of years. I'm just me and alive. It works :)
I guess if I had to pick an age, it would be 13. I was finally a teenager and not just a child.

when I turn 20 I cried my heart out! I thought it was all down hill now! I was so stupid! I'll be 51 or 52 in 2 weeks, I can't remember anymore. My sister usually calls and breaks the bad news! I don't even try to keep up. My son stop asking, he just calls the tattle tale of the family.

I acted the same ole foolish way for my 30th. My birthday is Nov 25th and it came on the Sunday after Thanksgiving that year and I refused to leave the house from Friday to Sunday to make sure I made it to Sunday. How crazy can you be? I told my husband and kids that whatever they were going to eat they better buy it for me to cook before Friday cause I was not leaving the house again until after I made it to 30. I am now 50 and look back and just laugh cause I am looking forward to the next 30 years and not dreading one day.
