There have been many studies both scientific and otherwise about the increased odds of having accidents, illnesses, or dying on or around your birthday. I am wondering if you once had accidents or illness around your birthday time, if that has changed and why you think that is.? Until recent years, I always got colds and flu about a month before, during, and after my birthday and rarely any other time of the year. I thought at that time it was the birthday syndrome thing or maybe explainable because my birthday is in cold and flu season. After strengthening my immune system with daily antiviral medication, I haven't had a single cold, flu, or any other virus. Perhaps my immune system was lower that time of year. Accident wise I still see an increase surrounding my birthday. I once thought it was because fall was when I did a lot of dangerous jobs readying for winter, but since the only jobs I do now are leaf removal and I still find myself having accidents like banging myself against a door, falling, or having close calls out walking or driving short distances, I remain undecided if it is the birthday syndrome or maybe just the season change or perhaps some other explanation.
