Recently I’ve found myself turning overly emotional and I don’t know whats wrong with me! When I was younger, one of my best friends and I used to joke about us being like ‘men’ because we barely ever cried. Fast forward 10 or so years and the story is VERY different.
I first noticed it a month or so ago. I’d be watching TV, there’d be a semi romantic gesture and me being the hopeless romantic I am would find it so cute it would make me emotional.
A few weeks ago I was having a general chat with my brother who was filling me in on his life and what his friend had been up to. I found out one of them had been going through a bit of a hard time which of course would normally make me feel sad for them but before I knew it I was crying. Obviously his first instinct was to ask me what the hell was wrong with me and if it happened to be the time of the month (which it wasn’t).
Fast forward and we’re sat watching Orange Is The New Black. I can’t even remember what we had been watching but it was only one of the first episodes from the first series. I hadn’t been watching it long enough to have grown an attachment to any of the characters but I cried 2/3 times!
It’s getting to the point where not only do I annoy myself as I can’t control my emotions but my brothers reaction is priceless. Any time I feel an emotion it turns into tears. I look around at my family, feel an overwhelming sense of happiness and I cry. I hear something remotely sad and I cry. I realise I can’t satisfy my mango craving for another day or two, I cry! Someone pays me a compliment, I cry!
At first, my brother used to look really concerned and now he just give me the ‘oh Jesus not again’ look! I’ve been warned that when I’m lucky enough to become pregnant he’ll remove himself from my life for 9 months and frankly I don’t blame him because I couldn’t stand this for 9 months either!
Well anyway, it’s been a while since I last blogged and I thought I’d catch you up on my weirdness…
Thanks again for reading guys!
