One summer I was helping to coordinate a large project, and it
was fairly stressful. There was lots of stuff going on, and
we all had a lot to deal with. My allergies were also acting up at
the time, so my eyes would water from time to time. It was really
weird, I be walking through the cube farm, and all of a sudden, I'd
have tears running down my face.
My coworkers seemed concerned, some were unusually nice to
me. People were telling me it would be OK. I couldn't figure out what
was going on. It was weird and sort of creepy. Please stop telling me
everything is OK. Of course it is. It took me a couple of days to
figure out that they thought I was having a breakdown or something!
I'm not the kind to explain things like that, so I just let people
believe whatever they wanted, but, no really, its just allergies!
