Has anyone felt over-emotional while meditating? I have been in many ED group therapy sessions where meditation is involved, and when I actually get into it, I become very emotional and start to cry. Has this happened to anyone else?

I think the emotions have to do with feeling disconnected with my body every day, and when finally meditating, I am in another state of body/mind that allows me to feel and be in my body without judgment. To me, it is scary being in a body and not judging myself, because it means I have to accept my body. And the closer I get to doing that, the better it is, but the harder it is, because it proves wrong all the thoughts and behaviours I've always had.
