Cry Baby

Have you ever burst into tears when someone told you some news, not because you are happy for them like you should be, but because you immediately think of how it negatively impacts you? I'm not proud of it, but it happened to me today. The effect was magnified by an extremely stressful day of the second of two very stressful weeks in a row. I felt like an ass afterwards and frantically contacted the person to apologize.

On the way home, I cried a little bit more in the car, maybe because I felt so stupid or maybe because I was so happy that my mp3 player randomly chose to play "Ziggy Stardust," just what I needed after another shitty day.

I did that once, when one of my best friends announced she was moving back to Australia. She was already living in a different state, and the thought of her being half way around the world was somehow just too much. But of course like you did, I snapped out of it and was happy for her.
I hope that things become a little less stressful for you...

No, but I know the emotional response and thoughts.
