Emotional Weirdness!

Just had to share today’s emotional weirdness... Dolly Parton Jolene was playing on the radio this morning and it actually moved me to tears, I’m not talking a little weep, but full on fat tears. After pulling myself together I then drove past a lorry of cows on their way to the slaughterhouse, big fat tears resumed! I’ve always been a tad on the emotional side, but this is crazy!!

I'm dreadful, too, if it's any consolation - and like you it's not just quiet, trickly tears but full on, heartbroken sobbing (just like a small child, in fact!) over stupid things. I've been like it for weeks. On one memorable occasion DH had to remove me from the paint aisle in Homebase and put me back in the car because of my uncontrollable weeping, caused by him forgetting which bedroom the cot was going in. I was convinced this meant he didn't love me and didn't want the baby!

Ha ha Armi, it's so good to hear I'm not alone! DP hasn't had to remove me from anywhere yet, but he does look at me with an puzzled and frightened expression when I start crying at adverts!

The words that really got me today were Jolene, I'm begging please don't take my man. Jolene Please don't take him cos you can... it was like it was real, I was really feeling for Dolly at that moment! Thinking about it now could make me cry!!

Hormones have a lot to answer for clearly... Right Gloria's definitely off the playlist too! And I shouldn't laugh, but that really made me smile xkatyx! smile x

another thing wanted to add. I believe its the bodys way of getting you ready to be empatatic towards your baby. Think about it it makes sensexx

i was just as bad, one time DP walked into the kitchen to find me sobbing into a yogurt because it wasnt the flavour i thought!

another time i stood in the street sobbing because the traffic lights took so long to change! blush
