    The other day my mom took me out shopping because she realized I wasn't doing very well and we needed sometime just the two of us. I was trying on a cashmere cardigan and the matching shell (one of my favorite indulgences). I became so overwhelmed trying to decide if I wanted the shell or just the cardigan, that I began to cry in the middle of the store. My mom was buying it for me and I could have gotten both if I wanted. I just became so overwhelmed by the decision. I felt my chest tightening and a knot in my throat. It was pretty embarassing because my mom was fussing over me and a few of the shop ladies came over to make sure I was okay.
    I thought I was doing well, but recently I have been crying at times, sometimes random and sometimes when some one tries to talk to me about my life. I just have to get over this.
     
  2. I guess sometimes when you let things build up even a simple decision can trigger a crying jag. So what i reccomend and try to practice myself as i have a similar issue, is keeping things in perspective sometimes just take a step back. Calm down and access the situation. Think about weighing options or how serious the situation really is and if the reaction might be appropriette

    My mom says like water off a ducks back, let it flow right off of you.
