Im really not an emotional person.
Yes I get angry or upset and have a massive outburst every now and again but its quick and over and forgotten almost immediatly.
As for crying… I am not a cryer. I dont cry at funerals or if a pet dies, in fact I very very seldom cry in public at all. SOme people think this means I dont care or am unfeeling or cold. Im not. I feel very deeply I just dont really show it, thats all.
Which makes the fact that I have cried at the drop of a hat since the beginning of this year so very very strange.
Sad tears, happy tears, it makes no difference. The smallest things set me off…
Only mildy worrying.
Are you a cryer? What sets you off?

I used to be super hardcore but this changed when I had kids.
Crying at the drop of a hat, though, in my universe usually indicates one of 2 things:
1. I’m pregnant or
2. There is some underlying issue in my life that needs addressing but which I am failing to confront.
I will say, though, that you should really not underestimate the power of hormonal changes in this regard, especially if there’s recently (or even not that recently) been a change along the lines of weaning from the breast or resuming your menstrual cycle after having a baby. Sometimes, these changes happen over many months and can affect you long after you thought that everything had returned to normal.
I am a crier. Anything can set me off. BUT. I am very private about it. I need to fully trust people before I let my guard down like that. So I will only cry in front of VERY close friends, my parents and my DH. Even my kids.
ps…meant to say that it seems to get worse as I get older. Every single tweet from @melindaconnor set me off these past few days!
I’m a cryer. I cry when I’m happy and when I’m sad.
I watched a Youtube video about some actress the other day (can’t remember her name) and she said that if her emotional state wasn’t in the range 3-7 (out of 10) she’d cry… I’m the same
Oh I am like you and somehow the last 2 months have just been strange too – crying a lot. Even cried with a client the other day. Totally unheard off.
I cry when I am incredibly frustrated. Sadness (and happiness) tend to be kept under wraps even though I may be feeling the emotion. Odd?
I’m not a crier either. Although I’m more likely to now that I’m on a different birth control. I never thought of how much my mood was affected by hormones until the change. Its funny, my husband never cries (he could probably count on one hand the number of times), but cried at our wedding (there are pictures!) but I didn’t shed a tear.
