  • Yes I to clue...

    Here's an example...A few years ago, my husband bought me a full body massage for mother's day. It was great, but I was so nervous that I literally did not shut up the entire time...that poor woman knows my whole life story (and she was probably bored to tears!!) and I was only in there for a freaking hour...

  • I do this sometimes.. I have started counting in my head. I know it sounds crazy, although when I am nervous or something I take a deep breath and count to 10 in my head, Usually that calms me down enough that I stop rambling. Sometimes it doesn't work and I talk alot.

  • I do and I have made some moms uncomfortable. I have to stop, think about what I really want to say, then respond without going into TMI.
    It is a nervous habit that is hard to break, but counting does help as well.

  • You're around strangers, and you get nervous, so you need to remind yourself that these people don't know you yet and they aren't ready for a life story. Think about what you're going to say before you say it, that way you can possibly control yourself.
