It's been an ongoing thing lately ... but then again I've been watching some very sad and depressing movies... It doesn't take much to get me to start with the water works....

I'm the opposite, it takes a lot to make me cry, but sadly it is because through the years of abuse I endured, I managed to somehow numb myself. Though am now getting treatment for bipolar disorder and PTSD, and trying to have some closure, i am now learning slowly how to express my feelings. As such, like yesterday, I had a very overwhelming session with my psychiatrist and it made me shed a few tears. Anger also elicits tears from me, especially when it comes close to rage. Relearning how it is to feel and negotiating the floods of emotions that now faces me, frustration can also break the dam that I put on since childhood. I'm learning now, that crying isnt a sign of weakness.

No, crying isn't a sign of weakness. I think it takes a very strong person to be able to face such emotions and pain. I admire you for getting treatment. You are such a brave person. I hope you do gain all you are working so hard for in you treatment.

For me, PTSD manifested in the opposite way, as a tendency to completely freak out over just about anything. Usually screaming and hitting people, but sometimes crying as well. Or hiding in closets... that's one that took me a long time to get through but since it disturbed my husband a LOT I had to work on it before anything else really.

I cry all the time since the loss of my brother! I find myself crying over silly things, but I know I am grieving. Tears seem to be my bodies way of releasing the stress and when its right for me I will stop crying. right now all it takes sometimes is a hell-o, lol, but this too shall pass.

Everyone deals with loss in their own way...and it's right the way it is for you. Be strong and know others understand. Goodness knows, I do!

Hi Sheribabe! :) The last time I cried was just this weekend. I attended a recollection/retreat and made some reflections on my past and failures I made. I was also overwhelmed by the number of people who prayed together with me and shared my burden. It was a private moment with God. :) Take care and God bless! \(",)_

Its your hormones, are you pregnant, no offense, I am. The last time I cried was yesterday morning when I woke up because the day before I went to see the doctor because I fealt dehydrated and needed anti nausea pills I fealt better until I woke up the next morning with a viral flu which I then had to go to urgent care for but its all good, they just told me to take tylenol and wait for it to pass. I cry often too though, hopefully you are just crying happy tears sometimes I do that to, you gotta get it out that you actually are happy, if thats the case, otherwise cry cry cry as well. Let that stuff out and let it go, always easier said than done. But thats my advice :-)

As a brand-new My Lot subscriber, Depression was one of the first areas that caught my eye. I was diagnosed by a liscensed psychiatrist three years ago as having "...chronic, long-term, severe, recurring depression". His professional recomendation was weekly counseling, combined with medication for 3-4 years. Because of my life experience, combined with the help of two good friends, (both medical professionals) I was able to overcome my condition without either. My experience with depression is that it has both cognitive, and physiological origins. My life today is such a complete turn around from three years ago that I am not even the same person, but I remember well the days of pain, mental anguish, tears, and the inability to function. It takes a terrible toll on one's life, it cost me jobs, my home, and my marrige, as well as several relationships before I knew what the problem was. I thought what I was feeling was normal! One of the things that helped me the most was having friends to talk to. I am always available by email. God Bless

I have been pretty emotional as of late as well. I could watch a hallmark commercial and cry. So don't feel bad. I find that watching Lifetime movie network is not such a good idea these days.

Last night. I woke up from a nightmare crying, and cried for like an hour. I've been extra stressed out lately because I'm having health problems, and having nightmares about things that happened to me in the past on top of it was just too much. I'm glad my husband wasn't home actually, because he would have been upset at me for "focusing on the negative". *sighs* What finally made me feel better was getting up and going to watch my son sleep for a while. He's only 15-months-old, and it's helps me to think that his life will be so much different from what my life was like. So I can be strong for him. =)

it was 3 days ago, i had a quarrel with my boyfriend. and he said some words against my heart. frankly, i felt very sad and disappointed. and i couldn't help dropping tears and i thought we couldn't live together forever. then he said sorry to me, and he told me that he didn't want to say those words, but he coulnd't help himself to do it. at last i forgave him, but i still felt sad.

For me, crying is almost everyday. I always cried because my husband always hurts me. He insults me this past few days sometimes for no reason. I don't know. It started when we have a fight with his mother he does not treat me well. I hate this part of my life. I don't know what to do but I think crying helps me in my feelings. Atleast if I cry it out my pain will somehow lessens. I just hope that later I will not cry always. And my husband will realise his doings to me.

I am the same. Being a PISCES star sign and a mother i am easily reduced to tears. If i didn't watch shows like Oprah and dramas then i wouldn't cry as often. The last time i really had a "bad cry" was when my daughter's father (my ex) was here to take her to his place. She was looking forward to going with him, she loves being with him so much. I hate being near him, he is 17 years older than me, he drinks, he speaks down to me and he always puts me down in front of our child. On the particular day when he came, they were on there way out the door and he said something mean to me and i said "your attitude is bad", he over-reacted and yelled and swore at me in front of our child, and he was saying that she couldn't go to his place, which made me so angry because he always tries to hurt me through hurting her. I felt so helpless because i couldn't protect her from his out burst and his hate. I have promised myself that from now on i will not react when he says something mean, i will wait until i am alone with our child and i will explain to her that what her dad said is wrong. She will see that i ignore all of his insults and out bursts and then she will learn to do the same to others who treat her that way.

You know what? I cried every night to release all the pain and stress for the whole day work. And I feel great and strong to face the next challenge in my life.

i cry most days. Natures beauty can make me cry, the look on my daughters face can, moving poetry can make me cry, a soft word from my lover and small kindness, guess I can cry at anything blessed be
