Triggers from the arts...

We had a thread about comedians in another forum, which got me thinking about how much I enjoy laughter and then how much I love music and suddenly I had a memory -

I was watching "Sophie's Choice" and had just started a prednisone dose pack (steroids and bp don't mix well, btw) for my lungs and got so upset by the movie that I didn't sleep for several nights (now known as mania) and ended up hospitalized for a week. Now that movie packed a wallop!! I've never seen it again and tend to avoid all other such movies. Ermm

There are some songs that make me cry - even in public. (i.e. "Heaven can wait"-Meatloaf) The emotions are that strong.

Anyone else?

WOW, you are very sensitive. That is really great that you are so sensitive. Smart to stay away from those kind of flicks.

Dont feel alone i become that way too. I cannot watch certain movies, tv shows etc.. I cannot read magazines either and if i do they have to be worth it.

That kind of stuff sends me overboard in a negative way.

I never had to hospitalized for that though.

Hope this helps to know you are not alone.

Thanks for the input. I should clarify that going that far into the hole was triggered by the movie, but enhanced many times over by the steriods!! I was on steroids for the lungs again in the late 90's and really had to work closely w/the pdoc juggling meds to stay on top of things. The steroids don't work in small dosepaks anymore and I just avoid anything stronger...
