I was watching an episode of The Bold And The Beautiful a few weeks ago and Amber was having her baby and I swear to you, the whole hospital heard her screaming. Then later in the week we were watching that new show Combat Hospital and it was the same thing. A woman in labor was screaming and yelling at her husband and I thought to myself, do people really do this?
I’ll be the first to admit that I gave birth very easily. I had Jason in 6 hours and Toby in 2. That’s by the time I got to the hospital. Not the “whole labor” time but I had it really pretty easy. It was still no walk in the park and I don’t know how women would want to do that very many times because I’m not saying it’s fun. I’m saying who yells like that? I never once yelled at anyone or told anyone I hated them or made any out loud noises that anyone else would hear. I would feel stupid to do that. I remember I cut my foot pretty bad in 1995 and it’s really the only time as an adult I had to go to the hospital to be “patched up.” That dang shot to numb you hurts more than the stitches but I didn’t cry tears. I just kind of held my breath and took deep breaths.
When you hurt yourself, do you cry in real tears? I normally will talk to myself and tell myself what a dumb thing I did or if I hit my funny bone I’ll think to myself “oh CRAP, this hurts” but I don’t cry tears when I’m hurt.
Now if I’m hurt emotionally, I cry at the drop of a hat. I can see someone reunited with someone and I cry. Hallmark commercials or movies, I’ll cry. Watching my grandchildren do things that makes me feel like they are growing up so fast. I’ll cry. I don’t really cry much when I’m reading a book but I cry at movies EASILY.
I sometimes also cry when I get mad but then I get really mad at myself because it makes me feel weak.
What makes you cry REAL tears? Pain? Emotion? Anger?
