> Fallsfall and Donna Louise, thank you so much for responding. I really thought I was just weird; good to know that other people have similar feelings, and good to hear that it suggests I'm caring as opposed to just odd. I think I will speak to my therapist about it as cutting the doll bothers me (aside from all the witchcaft associations I have with that!).

> Interesting that you mention the doomed animals, Donna Louise, as my heart breaks when animals get hurt. They say we Brits care more about our animals than our children. I wouldn't know about that, but I really felt waves of guilt last year when I saw all the atrocities in 'The Rape of Nanking' and couldn't cry but I was deeply affected by the death of a leopard in a film I'd seen earlier in the week. I thought this made me really callous. Yes, stuffed animals still get to me, too. I wonder why. Perhaps they get to everyone, but people don't want to admit it...

I am the same way, there are movies I must avoid due to bad things happening to animals but not so if it is bad things happening to people. (However, I am not going to subject myself to the new Jesus movie either!) I have to be really protective of myself as these things can cause a crashing depression. I hate that the SSRI's numb my feelings but that is what is called for to keep me out of the bed. So I can function. Otherwise I just cry all the time. Even with the meds I must be very careful as to what I am exposed to. My friends all know not to tell me any bad animal stories. I wonder if anyone else out there has any ideas about this? Now, here I go again, wondering how crazy this is!

Donna
