I normally don't. My Grandmother pops up in my dreams rarely, but she is the only one. She was my favorite and died when I was 15. Only funeral I ever attended where I sort of lost it. My Aunt, who rarely talked to me or my sister came up to me after the funeral and said to me "Your Grandma is gone now, but maybe I can be like her for you" and my reply was "I fucking doubt it". 15 year old NSW was getting started on being an asshole early on!

I've never suffered a major injury, thank God. My right foot was the only thing close. In a basketball game four years ago, I was running down court, and, as I was running, my right toe was pointed to the ground and my heel pointed up. At that moment, a teammate tripped and fell directly on the heel of my foot, and sprained the middle of my foot. Only time I ever left a game for an injury. It was in the first quarter, and I spent the whole second quarter trying to walk it off, to no avail. I spent the next few days heavily limping, and working it out in my pool by sitting on the edge and just moving it around. It still swells up when I run in games early in the season, and progressively gets better as the season goes on.

Oh, no one thing....some romantic in nature when I was a lot younger.....some just action-packed and crazy but fun....some are simple, me on a train overseas pops up now and then, which I love.....other simple ones are my 3 closest friends and I at Yankee Stadium, etc.....I wish I could remember some of the more positive but bizarre ones, but I don't.

My mother's father died eleven years before I was born. My father's parents died within a year of each other, when I was two and three years old. My mother's mother was around till I was eight, when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She died a year and a half ago, when I was 15. I haven't cried, to be honest, since her funeral. I was perfectly fine for the whole mass, and then, as we walked out with the casket ... a guy was playing Amazing Grace on bagpipes (we're all Irish) as we were walking out and that sort of did me in a little bit.

I was solid as a rock at my Grandmother's, but for whatever reason, right in the middle of the service, I lost it out of nowhere. I did not fight it or anything, I loved her a lot and was upset that I was not more upset prior to. That's the last time I cried over a lost relative, but, certainly, I've shed tears since.

I haven't really had anything to cry over since then. I'm not an outwardly emotional person, for the most part.

I had a very serious head/neck/back injury that took months to recover from physically. I am now fine, sometimes my back gets tense but a heating pad does it. The worst was the PTSD which I really shook the next fall while I was abroad and then this fall I talked to someone about it a little. But once in a while it pops up, some idiot mentions the incident at school or soemthign happens that I overreact to. PTSD FTL.

I'm surprisingly sensitive to certain things. Odd moments during songs or films, or even things I observe move me and I'll well up. We're not talking major flow of tears here, but, I definitely am more prone to it than one would think.

I'll also fight someone, so, there's that.

Major injuries suck. What happened exactly, if you don't mind me asking of course?

That's a shame.

I remember when someone made a "your mom" joke to the kid who's mother died of cancer.

I'll suck the soul out of a person if they cross me and then I will weep for his/her family's loss.
