This isn't a weird symptom, but BOY am I overly emotional. My brother & his family returned to the US after living overseas for a bit, but they are in a different state. My SIL is actually pregnant and has had pre-term labor, so they had to cancel a trip to come here. I felt like I should wait for their baby to be born before I go visit. I found out last night that my dad was heading to visit them today, and it threw me into a slump/depressed mood all afternoon... I held it together until dh got home, then I proceeded to cry for over an hour (while cooking dinner, etc.) Finally I calmed down enough to CALL my brother and find out if my assumption was true- he was like nope, don't stress, come whenever- if you are here when the baby is born you will just get a lot of free food (since everyone would bring meals, etc!)
My other source of stress is anxiety about driving my old SUV (which needs brake work) to/through the mountains to get to them... my dad just called me and told me to rent a dang car, and how to get a cheap rental... so I will make the case to dh to do that. (Between saving wear/tear on my car and better gas mileage, the true "cost" of renting will probably be less than $100... and once we get there, free lodging and fun stuff to do, and I can cook so can save food $$ that way.) But I had gotten so emotional and built up this whole "whah whah" story for myself about why we COULDN'T go see my brother (just spent a ton of $$ traveling for a wedding, the baby situations, etc) rather than logically investigating the situation and running the $$ and figuring out logistics--- so I guess I have a symptom of overly emotional, catastrophic thinking rather than seeing things as they are and staying calm?
