I am fortunate to be able to keep it together when I am working although there are some times as I am taking care of someone I feel that little tug that comes before I sense my eyes are starting to look moist.
I hate this defect! I have even looked into a name for this awful condition. Do you know what they call it? It is called "Emotional Incontinence". Great, that alone is reason enough for me to reach for the tissues and call Dr. Phil. If only an adult diaper would solve this problem!
Since I am getting all personal with you let me share something else. This year my kids were all sick during parent/teacher conferences.
What did I do you ask?
I made my husband go to the conference so I could stay home with the kids.
Not for the reason you may think. It was because Trevor and Elise's 2nd grade teacher makes me cry. Can you believe it? I can be brought to tears by a 2nd grade teacher telling me how good or bad my kids are doing at school.
I think I might make her uncomfortable when my eyes start to glisten. That one unpredictable parent that might lose it at the drop of a hat. It is never more then silent tears in the eyes, but we all know they are there. I am hoping she is extra nice to them at school just because she thinks their Mom must be a train wreck at home!
CRAZY...maybe you should move on now, find another blog to read because I must be nuts! Just back out of the room, I may not even notice. Don't take it personally if I shed a tear.
I would love to find something that keeps this in check. It is not even like I am sad. I just get teary for no reason. It seems to be worse with people I do not know well, anxiety? Hell if I know! If they find a cure I will call my doctor everyday crying until they offer it to me. Actually my doctor might not be a hard sell, she makes me cry too!
Do you have a physical/emotional trait you just hate? Anyone need a tissue? I have plenty here.
