I’m wondering if I am imagining a problem. My father dropped dead one day of a heart attack when I was 16 (I’m now 38 and old enough to know better!), and I had been very close to him - the pain was unbearable. This seems trivial compared to the things I have read from you all, but I feel I am still inappropriately in pain. I cry too easily when someone dies in a film or TV show. My mood changes throughout the day, from being content, to angry, to occasional euphoria and sometimes tears – I often cry while driving to work, and then manage to be perfectly composed when I get there! Am also a bit hypersensitive to noise. It’s not so bad it affects work (apart from a few angry scenes, where I feel I act like a child!), but most days I’m not on an even keel all day. I sometimes wonder if everyone feels like this in a way, and I should just get on with it, but life seems difficult every single day, and it's exhausting. I feel like a failure.
