    You know, just like Sarek, where as you get older you can't control your emotions as well?

    I used to be "Mr. Steel" and could appear un-moved by anything (funerals, etc.).

    But now even something like watching a movie or reading a book and... sometimes I get a little dust in my eyes or something. :whistling: Especially if it involves kids... :crying:

    Just checking to see if this is typical of getting older? I mean "gaining wisdom"?! ;)

    I don't know but I have the BOHICA syndrome and that seems to be getting worse the older I get.

    Kestrou,

    As a male grows older, the concentration of testosterone in his blood declines. This allows the concentration of estrogen in his blood to become more obvious.

    Mine happened right after some major surgery. I seem to cry much easier and it is hard to suppress.

    Don't know why.

    Dunno, but I've always blinked a lot at the end of Gladiator and 300.

    I can relate. But for me it wasn't surgery, it was a major injury just over a year ago. Now I cry at the drop of a hat. Damn near any hat.

    At least in me case I understand why.

    I am less tolerant of BS as I grow older. I care less what people think of me.

    I'm more of a softie now as well.

    Call it hormones, wisdom, or more fragile bones, but, although my eyesight is less, my vision is more.

    Go figure.

    Some have it after a major surgery, particularly brain stuff....my uncle got that in 9's after an operation to remove a tumor....

    I get it, the urge to tear up, ever since losing my sis to cancer some years ago..( I hadn't cried for maybe, 40 years prior to that event...)....can't explain it , age too, I suppose.

    Ime aughtte.......:crying:

    In my advancing age I now suffer from a epic case of CRS. I have tried a variety of products and it hasn't helped.

    Any ideas from the peanut gallery?

    After major surgery studies have shown reactions/ emotional control similar to vets w/ PTSD. It isn't unusual or uncommon, either the body or the mind is more influenced by lengthy general anesthesia or the stress of the surgery and recovery takes it toll. My advice is to seek help if it becomes serious enough to cause depression or stops your normal everyday activities. If all it does is increase your appreciation of the others and encourages you to be more open - accept being a wuss gracefully! j/k :rofl:
