Yes i have.I have ME. before I knew what was wrong with me i tried to ignore it and just go about life as always. That did not work well. I got worse and worse an in the end i could hardly get to my office and just sit there for a few minutes before I collapsed. I cried when I had to give ut working

I was getting so ill that I could not go on working. I was crying becaus my illness forced me to give up my job and stay home. The last year I have hardly been out of my apartment due to my health. My boss did nothing - he was very supportive

nope,I haven't done that yet. I don't think it good for your future work.Maybe your boss would consider you as a "strawberry".You know,that kind of people who are fraile and unable to work under pressure.

Hi littlefranciscan! No, haven't cried in front of my boss. I guess, I was just lucky that my boss before when I was still working was so kind. However, even when it is not work related and my boss will be sympathetic to my problems, I have not cried in front of her. I guess, tears won't fall when I am in front of anyone. I really don't know why but tears only fall when I am all alone in my room. Take care and have a nice day! :)

Yes, I became very close with one of my bosses. I am an independent contractor, but we are very good friends now. Anyways I was dealing with a hard situation, and I spoke with her about it. Speaking to her, turned into balling for a while, till I got it all out in the open.

my boss is also a friend of mine...and he has seen me at my best and my worst. He was one of the people I talked to when my mother-in-law, whom I was really close to) passed away not quite a year ago. It was something that I had to deal with in the presence of others, because I wouldn't allow myself to cry about it when my wife was around. I felt that I needed to be strong for her, but when I talked to my boss and a couple of others about things...I wasn't able to keep that composure quite as well. This is not something that most guys normally do, and definitely not something that I have ever done before, so it was a little awkward at first. No one has mentioned it since that time. Some of those same people have came to me and cried about one thing or another themselves since then. It is nice to know that we can come to each other with these things and not have to feel uncomfortable if we become emotional...it is a good stress reliever to be able to walk into my boss's office and close the door and cry and curse and let off some steam if we need too...sometimes that is the only way we make it through the day...LOL
