How to stop being so emotional

I anything that makes me happy/sad/angry/proud I just burst into tears . I had to go see the head teacher in my DDs school today and I burst out crying in her office . There was nothing in the conversation that should have really made me upset . I would have got away with it being pregnant but it's not the first time I've burst into tears in the school . It's not like I am depressed or anything it's just whenever I feel any emotion it most often than not makes me cry .

Please tell me I am not the only weirdo like this smile

You aren't! Im a crier. Many things set me off, music especially. Worse as currently Pg, worsened after DS (PFB) born but always been a crier! grin

I too am a crier...can't help myself. Literally anything sets me off...even seeing someone cry will make me cry. I sometimes cry and laugh at the same time which is even weirder.

Thank goodness BB I honestly feel like a total freak sometimes !! It's really annoying me now though . Apart from being completely mortified today, I didn't get to say half the things I wanted . Once I was sobbing the conversation was pretty much over and I couldn't get out quick enough !!blush

Done that too miss !!! does laughing too hard turn into crying ? I get that !!

It does get a bit embarrassing, i find it depends on how tired i am, and also how passionate i am. I cry when I'm in a situation i feel i cant change, have cried in every single job! I cry through emotion and frustration

I cried in work a few weeks ago when my boss was giving me a row . I when I get like that though I feel terrible and shattered for the rest of the day . I relate wish I knew how to hold cry in !!

I believe there is some speculation that it is a sign of a lack of B vitamins.
I don't know how much evidence there is to support this, but it might be worth looking in to?

I might do as it doesnt feel purely emotional, its very embarrassing at times

Did the vitamin B help?

I am far too emotional. I get so upset over the slightest thing. I have even broken into tears when I have watched someone running for the bus, worrying that they may miss it. I did not know the person or had ever seen that person before. This has happened more than once, in fact it is something that I would get emotional 90% of the time. Sometimes I manage to fight the tears but other times I cannot. It can be highly embarrassing. I struggle watching emergency programs on TV without crying, that I will not watch them unless I am alone.

I would say that I cry at least 3 days out of 7 over the most silliest of things. The other days I have managed to fight the tears. I hate being like it as I do not think that it is normal and embarrassing. It has now got a little worse since my little girl has gone to pre-school. She is more than happy to go, in fact she looks forward to it. If she was not and cried I do not think that I could cope in taking her. I know a lot of Mum's feel the same way when their child first goes to preschool. I was told not to take her for her injections any more as I burst into tears, which upsets my daughter, I just cannot help it.

Will look into the Vitamin B myself, but if others have tried it and it helped then if they could let me know it would be great.
