I would describe myself by saying that commercials dmake me cry. I can not look at people or animals being harmed even when I know it is not real. Music can give me energetic or help me relax and go to sleep.
Noise that is very loud make my eyes tear. My parents told me that fireworks made me cry as a child. I still have to use ear plugs to watch them. I am a repeat cryer. If I think of something that made me cry I will start to cry again. I am very empathetic.
I do not often get angry. I do get frustrated usually about things that are horrible but I can not help. I have a very strong visual memory. I can see the Washington DC police officer who was being crushed in the door. My eyes have teared up thinking about him.
I think I am ADHD - c. I have never read anything that links the kind of ADHD with emotional issues. I was so sensitive as a child that I would move worms out of the way so they would not get hurt as I gardened with my mother. I am as quickly joyful as I am saddened. I have been very happy when I am able to photograph a bird or butterfly. I had happy tears during my students’ graduations.
My over emotional nature I think has made me a better person than I would have been without it. I am off to get another tissue.
