Just Joined- Sad Movies
Thank you Mez I am going to try to control my emotions, the only way usually is to just leave the room so I cannot hear anything either a movie or in real life. Just needs time and practice. Thanks for reply!
Thank you both for your replies! It will be so nice to get control of my emotions. Feel so helpless. But so glad now that I know its common. I really thought I was going a little crazy that I wasnt like everyone around me. They think I am hormonal lol, but I have always been like this. Appreciate your responses!
So I am so happy to find a name for the what I am. I thought I was crazy for me emotions being way to strong, when everyone around me is fine.
I actually have such a strong reaction to sad movies. It is unbearable to me to watch them at all. I have to get up and leave the room in a sobbing mess. not just tearing up but sobbing from so much emotion. I am a mess for at least an hour. I actually have just started making sure that we don't watch any thing sad. I love action and horror just fine, its weird. I don't even like romance. Even sad commercials make me cry.
I hate that I have no control over my emotions. its embarrassing. My husband and kids just laugh at me. A sad show will have me crying even days after when I even think of the movie.
Even just when someone tells me something sad about a loss or sickness in their family I just start crying.
Is this normal for an empathy? Anyone else having similar issues?
