Flaxseed and emotions

I have tried flaxseed on a few different occasions and find that whenever I have it, I get really emotional.
I am not sure if there is a link between the two, but it does seem odd. I will have it at breakfast in a smoothie and then by the afternoon I am very emotional, crying over anything stupid and I don't usually recover until the next day.
Has this happened to anyone else?

I have not experienced that myself, but my mom was suffering pretty bad from menopause, and she incorporated flax and had excellent results regulating her emotions. Sounds like the opposite of what you described, but it does have effects on hormones, so does not sound unusual.
