Gaymedes saidAs I am getting older (yes I know how old I am) I have been noticing I am getting alot more emotional. Watching movies or TV and I get more choked up and can even cry a little. I didn't use to do this but in the past couple of years it has been happening more and more.
I do know that when I read I have always been emotional connected with the characters.
Anyone else notice this as they age? or am I (and this has been happening to my husband too) just totally gay
This is a normal part of aging, and hormonal losses. Your brain doesn't get fully wired until about the age of 30, and, so, as you mature, you get a bit more sensitive. If you're a fat ass, you'll have higher levels of estrogen, which also accounts for some of this, as well as other diseases of obesity. Because it takes years of bad behavior to become a fat ass, if you weren't fat as a kid, it takes you a while to go there as an adult. Testosterone peaks in your late 20's to early 30's and as your testosterone to estrogen ratio lowers when you go into andropause you know only find yourself less lean, more emotional, and feeling a bit sluggish, but, your also loose some of your cognitive speed due to the lower test levels.
If you're not now, you should investigate anti-aging and HRT. It's good medicine and will not only make your feel and look better, but will protect your heart, and prevent diseases of aging, as well as help you retain cognitive function. If you're a fat ass, it's essential to begin a behavior modification program.
