The problem

The problem is not that I'm acting irrationally. The problem is that my reactions are reasonable but disproportionate. That is, they're in reasonable directions, just not reasonable magnitudes.

The up side of this is that spending a few hours in comfort with friends is disproportionately cheering.

Stupid hormones anyway. Want to talk about magnitude problems, that's a magnitude problem, right there.
