I'm not sure if this is the right section but i figured people familiar with anxiety problems might be familiar with some solutions.
There are specific triggers that can predictably make me cry. If I'm talking about something I find threatening to someone who holds power over me, then I'm likely to start crying. For example, if I'm talking to my boss about my job performance. It's terribly embarrassing and causes me to avoid talking about subjects that I know could be triggers. But avoidance is often unrealistic or makes things worse. I also don't want to blame it on allergies or anything insincere.
I was wondering if there's a medication out there that can prevent me from crying when I know that I'm going to face a potential situation later in the day.
I'm not interested in advice related to the therapeutic nature of crying, or about coming to terms with the reason for crying. I understand that crying has its time and place. Unfortunately crying in front of my boss is never appropriate, and understanding why I cry isn't going to help me stop crying. I just need a pill or something. Any suggestions?
PS, My boss isn't that bad, it's just an example I'm using.
