Dear Dr. Dombeck, I have actually a quite strange problem. I read a lot about children and teenagers being very emotional and throwing tantrums, but I am 21 years old and I do this too. Sometimes I fly off the handle or cry for no reason. I've tried very hard to control this anger many different ways and I've been fairly successful, and as a result, my personal relationships have thrived. The new problem that arose from this, which is quite odd, was that I'm so happy. I cry a lot out of happiness and i have a constant fear I'm going to lose the people in my life that I finally love and get along with! For example, my boyfriend and I are getting along so well, he moved in, and we're talking about getting married. Things are so great, I'm so happy that it makes me cry when I think about it. why is this? how can I handle this? it feels so stupid to be so upset when I'm so happy! Thanks
