I get really depressed in the winter. I can't tolerate the cold. (I also have lots of health problems, Fibro, Chronic pain, migraine, depression.) I am having Fibro Fog, so please excuse my spelling.
So I have this weird thing that I call Enviromental Sensitivty. If I see something sad on TV or hear a sad song, I start crying. Another example, I just watched the end of Miss America, which I care nothing about, I watched Miss Oklahoma get the crown and I cried. I wasn't sad, I just picked up on her emotions. It's so strange.
It's almost like I pick up on the mood of what's going on and it has a huge effect on me. I am so sensitive to everything, mainly during the winter. I could be in a perfectly happy mood and then see something sad on TV and I cry. I watched Judging Amy this morning and Maxine was talking to her dead mother in the hosptial and I was a wreck. I couldn't believe I was so busted up over some tv show.
Does anyone experience this?

ALL the time , I used to think i was just a really emotional person but now I am at a real loss to be able to explain why this happens. I guess for me it's just that i understand and feel for a person who is in a situation that they may feel hopelessness and I cry. Cry because I go through life knowing that I am different and not everyone is able to feel for another person as themselves. This may not make any sense but it's how I feel and I know I'm not alone.
live, laugh, and always love

Jwalter, I think that this is just a part of the depression.  I am feeling pretty much the same at this time.  I am overly sensitive not only to sad movies, but also to the news, and all those commercial ads that refer to every sickness imaginable.  I wish they would throw them all on one channel and leave them there for those who enjoy watching them.  How can one think health and be happy when constantly being reminded of sickness.  There should be a law!  Just my input.  Hope you rise above your sadness soon.
