Can Ewe Die Of Embarrassment ?
« on: 08/02/2009 20:47:30 »
Dearest Huggable Bunch Of luffly Peeps,

ewe know I luff ewe all yes ?

Shy that I am, and even a tad embarrassed to mention it, I of course, as a sheepy, keep ewe all so close to my heart !

One often hears the phrase " I could die from embarrassment"....is this because people actually have ?

This leads me to ask ewe about the physiological process of blushing/becoming embarrassed !

We all have it eh ?..head feels fuzzy and stuff , ewe feel warm !!.... so is it that your blood pressure drops ?..or increases ?...what is actually happenning during embarrassment-blushing fun ?

Have people really died of embarrassment ?

Hugs ewe all..


Shmishes ewe also !!


mwah mwah mwah mwah





Neil
I'm Blushing...uh oh !!....THUD !!
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Embarrassment is a bit like humility...If it is bad enough I have known people have actually been so badly embarrassed that they actaully tried to take their own lie... now I believe this is an extreme self punishment..and terribly sad.

It also sort of touches on how one could feel so badly..especially where the enbarrassment has been exaggerated and become more then that, when extreme humiliation comes into it....

I think most people get so embarrassed they feel they could just die...but hopefully for most of us...that is just a description of terrible embarrassment and that is it...does tend to make one run and hide and never go ut again.. or show ones face as is oftenmentioned after extreme embarrassing incidents have taken place...

She said afterward that she endured bleeding for a year because she was embarrassed to go to a male doctor. And she wore her makeup even in surgery. "They didn't make me take it off,'' she said. "I had wonderful doctors and understanding nurses. I went in fully made up and came out fully made up."

The truth is, with early detection she would be alive today.

Does that count? :)
