My emotions bring me to a brink of losing my mind, I get to emotional over nothing, I am wondering if I have serious emotional problems? I got over emotional today about a mix up with some of my prescriptions. These moods happen without a clue, then bang I'm off. I take Saint John Warts when that happens and in a few seconds I am fine. My wife say it's no reason for me to go off the handle like that. Any ideas on (why) I do that? Paul

Its hard to say without some history.

Is this a sudden problem?

Have you noticed any other, even if random and unrelated, changes?

Default I have been emotional all my life.

My emotions () as of late seem to control me and not vice versa. I am worried because my family has seen it and they to are concerned. I have spells of being exsteamley tired and worn out. I sleep twelve to fourteen hours a day sometime. I want to know why? Any thoughts? Paul

Thoughts trigger emotions, even when the thoughts are subliminal. That's why you don't have a clue.
Saint John Warts help? They work like aspirin/anesthetic, they both relieve symptoms but not the cause.

How do thoughts go 'underground' or 'behind the scenes' ? Some people repeat affirmations till they are believed, then they no longer think the thoughts but are reacted to anyway.
When you learned to drive a car , you practised the thoughts, put the key in the ignition, put the gear in neutral, put one foot on the gas pedal, the other on the brake. Now you no longer 'think' those thoughts but they are still part of your driving habits.
Subliminal thoughts are very helpful but some are dysfunctional, like you 'flying off the handle' over little things.

Question You want practical results instead of theory ?

Two thought experiments: (to demonstrate ideomotor, Chevreul pendulum automatic reactions.)
1. Think of tasting lemon juice till you experience an increase of saliva in your mouth. ( you will swallow)
2. Think a thought that disturbs you; (feel some degree of emotion.)
After these thought experiments, do you need more proof that thoughts interact with your involuntary nervous system? Thought images are emotionally reacted to automatically.
The question is: "Can thought do the opposite as well; that is, curtail/abort emotion?

When you have a infection, germs/virus are present; even though you don't see them.
(Your unrecognized thoughts are like the germs you don't see.)
Your thinking a thought when emoting; (even if you don't recognize your thought.)

Write this down; and the next time you emote read this; " I'm emoting because I'm thinking a thought; EVEN THOUGH I DON'T RECOGNIZE WHAT THE THOUGHT IS ".

Paul: everyone has your problem, but NOT TO THE SAME DEGREE. On a scale of 1 to 10, you rate a 10, but most people rate lower than you.
Even if your wife only gets 'mildly' irritated/annoyed/frustrated, it's still the same process that you go extreme doing.

Remember Chicken Little? A cherry fell on his head, but he didn't see what hit him, he thought, the sky was falling, so he ran around yelling, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling".

[quote=Paul James;41104361]Interesting thoughts especially about the driving part./QUOTE]

When children are afraid of 'bogyman', they do not 'recognize' they are reacting to thought.
'Telling' them is not the same as they 'recognizing' it for themselves. Does that apply to you?
'Telling' you you react to thoughts is not the same as you 'recognizing' it yourself.

Ask your wife,(when she sees you over emotional), instead of her saying; " It's no reason for you to go off the handle like that". To ask you; "Are you reacting to thoughts?"

When children 'recognize' reacting to the thought 'bogyman', they stop.
When you 'recognize' reacting to thought, you can/will stop also.
