YES! All these armchair quarterbacks trying to chastise the OP for admitting to crying. She didn't feel good about crying, but sometimes it just happens--especially as described above. Add in post-partum/PMS/perimenopause/untreated depression/feeling vulnerable/anything really! and you sometimes cry even when you don't want to. At the age of 52, after 3 kids, full time work and juggling life, if I were chastised for all the times I broke down in tears that's all you guys would do! She obviously feels bad, do you really think telling her she shouldn't have cried is gonna do any good? Some people are criers, others are not. I have gone head to head with the best of them to stand up for myself, but sometimes the tears come. It doesn't mean I am a door mat, or in histrionics or out of control. It is just what I do. Give her a break!
