As you have seen from the other postings, you are certainly not an oddball but, brace yourself,
you are in fact human.
Our emotions help create a balance in our lives and at times - the Yin and Yang. It may seem like we have gone off the deep end, when if fact - it is helping us create a more even keel in this journey.
It has been said that there is a thin line between genius and insanity, and that is the same with sorrow and euphoric joy. We have all seen the game shows or even antiques roadshow in which the patron is so pleased with the value of their prize they cry- and when asked why?->" I'm so happy!"
I did not cry when I got my diagnosis. I only cried a bit when I thanked the doctor for his hard work after my surgery. I am more appreciative of the "joys of life" and find the folly of succumbing to anger and petty squabbles a waste of time. I do my best to cope and if necessary, just walk away.
The more you accept the changes in your life and embrace what gives you such an euphoric joy, you will find the waterworks will diminish, and an internal glow will replace it.
All the best for your "last kid's" college graduation - and if you do cry - your son will not be embarrassed - but he will know how proud you are of him and how hard you fought to see this day happen.
