My tears cure cancer, unfortunately I don't cry.....ever

I don't really see this as a problem or a deficiency, but sometimes it sounds like it would be nice. It would be nice when the world gets real heavy and bears down on you like it's nobody's business. My wife always says she "feels better after a good cry". She does not have the same proclivity, as she could cry at the drop of a hat... literally. If she were to drop her hat in a puddle she might cry. Of course it is probably exacerbated by the fact that she is pregnant. Anyway, I have had misty eyes and perhaps they even welled at one point or another, but I am pretty sure it has been 10 to 12 good years since I "let it all out" so to speak. I have tried, and it is not like I am emotionless, but the tears just don't come. When my grandfather passed in 2000, I was in grave pain, my eyes welled but nothing escaped. I felt bad, because if you don't cry some people might think you don't care. I am pretty sure that it is not just a guy thing, because I have some guy friends that cry at a sad movie. And then there are those guys at church that just turn on the water works at the mention of Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior. I am just as thankful for the cross, but I don't even get the lump when I think about God. Well, that's part of my story. Tell me, what does it feel like for you when you "have a good cry"?
