I've not posted for a long time and I've been absent from SL. I hope to change both of those things. My apologies to those who feel neglected. I've missed my friends and exploring.
Don't read past the picture, if it bothers you to read things that don't pertain to SL.
After some research, I found that ... Scientists studying tears of emotion have detected a chemical that cannot be found in tears from irritants - it seems that simply by weeping we produce tiny amounts of a natural painkiller [leucine enkephalin] that hits receptors in the brain and, in turn, dulls our pain.
So according to my brain... I did love my uncle, even if he was a bigoted, condescending, manipulative miser of a human. Our bodies have internal defenses to protect us from ourselves. I was crying because my brain knew I needed to cry, even if I was not cognizant.
