Things I Wish I Knew Before My IUD

Emotional Over Beautiful Things

I’m not a stoic person, or overly emotional.  I feel as though my expression of emotions falls into a pretty standard range, and they stay there, except for small moments of beauty.

The first time I realized something was wrong was when I started tearing up whenever the bridge of “Whip My Hair,” came on.  Yes, Willow Smith’s song about hair empowerment that I heard millions of time before getting my IUD, was bringing me to tears.  I remember trying to look away while thinking:  “That little girl is so inspiring!”

The thing was, my IUD has a low dose hormone to it, and it caused an increase of emotion in certain music related times.

But it doesn’t stop there.  Listening to opera, a Spanish guitar, and the movie Frozen will leave me weeping uncontrollably.  I even had to take a moratorium on the Wicked soundtrack.  My tears were no longer “Defying Gravity,” if you know what I mean.
