Flustered, opinionated, and intense. Jesus. - October 25th 2009, 03:49 AM

I don't know...if this is just who I am or if this is an actual issue...but I've been like this for as long as I can remember and I absolutely loathe it.

I am sensitive and easily moved...I'm quite passionate about arguments and debates and I am EXTREMELY opinionated and intense about my views. When I'm talking about something seriously my entire body heats up and sometimes my eyes water or I start crying.

I just found out that a favourite actor of mine did not quit smoking after he said he did (I saw some recent pictures) and then I ended up almost crying about it because my friend was calling me drastic for freaking out a bit over the whole thing. I'm just so fed up with the whole thing and

Yet I've been tempted to smoke myself many times and I have a smoking fetish.

I don't understand myself. I'm a purist by nature but sometimes I just want to let loose and go abuse some substances. Of course I never get to actually do that.

I don't know but it feels like I switch in and out of moods or opinions. I also can't ever calm down, and I've just got all this high mental energy but low physical energy.

I'd go into more details but I don't have time. Perhaps later. Geez...

It's okay what you're feeling and how you're acting. It's not unheard of, really.

Does it literally happen all the time, or could it be related to your menstrual cycle? I know my mother gets like that before she has her period. =P

The other thing though, is some people are just overall more sensitive than others. It happens. But it's really draining on you I'm sure. I can say I cry when I see a drunk guy get picked up by police because I don't know if he's going to get help. Or I cry when I hear that people are starting a non-profit organization. Or I get EXTREMELY passionate about politics to the point that I will be leading protests some day, I plan on it. =D But I don't know if that's how you feel or not, I just want to say being sensitive is not always a bad thing.

If you're truly concerned, you can always speak to a therapist, doctor, or someone like that to just kind of tell you what they think, where you should go from there - if anywhere. They're extremely helpful.

A lot of people use drugs and other substances. Honestly, using drugs is the worst decision I could have made. But some people are okay with sometimes using them and using them responsibly. Such as not having to get wasted every time they drink, or being able to limit pot use and so forth. I'm by no means encouraging drug use, but let me tell you that smoking is extremely hard to quit (as are other drugs, but it's different than pot or whatever in my opinion) and is socially acceptable to lots of people which means many people will encourage you to smoke with them.

If you want to talk more feel free to PM me. You seem like a super cool person. ^_^

My, my. You're my kind of person.

Coming from a random person on the intartubes, I'm sure this doesn't mean much; but I think you're fine. We're all moved by certain things; some are moved more then others and some are moved more on different subjects.

As Gidig said if you're concerned, see a doctor or someone who's professionally trained in subjects like this. Best wishes to you Cardinal. :\
