The crying cure

damMost of my life I have been like a poorly dammed river–tears leaking through the cracks  incessantly. And in imminent danger of the whole construct collapsing in one gigantic emotional episode.

It’s a weakness. Not being able to control the dam of your emotions–or your tear ducts. At least that is what I have been told and have observed and have keenly felt.

Crying on the job. Definitely not a good idea.

And in friendships and intimate relationships. Frequent tears can cause problems there as well.

At the movies and concerts and parties. Yeah, not so cool.

But, regardless of how HARD I tried, there they were–welling up. The tears always managed to find a crack.

“Why, oh why, do I cry so darn easy?” was the question I asked myself 1,000 times over standing in front of the bathroom vanity. And to Brance who, poor man, has heard too many of my emotional woes over our 10-year marriage.

And, of course, it wasn’t as if I looked cute when I cried. No, not a wee bit. I’m one of those whose face resembles a pepperoni pizza pie replete with large blotchy red spots.

But, interestingly enough, that has all changed for me. I no longer cry at the drop of a hat and I couldn’t be happier. I have found my crying “cure”.

What is it, you say? You too cry at the drop of a hat. Or are friends with or married to someone who cries at the drop of a hat.

Optimizing my Vitamin D levels  stopped my incessant crying.

I am absolutely now convinced that my constant crying was a sign that everything was NOT as it should be. That unstable emotions are often a signpost pointing to an imbalance in our health. For many of us, this imbalance involves low Vitamin D levels.

I’ve been taking Vitamin D now for several years and I no longer have to worry about the dam breaking loose. And it’s a great feeling.
