Anyone else have the inability to cry? No matter how severe my depression/anxiety gets, I can't shed a tear. And it hurts more to hold them in 😭 I feel I'd recover from my depressive states a lot faster if I could cry. The only time I cry is when there is a loss of life to someone important to me. I don't wanna internally cry forever😥 I'm not emotionless, I just can't cry

    Yeahhhh this was a big problem for me for most of my life. Childhood PTSD opened up an anxious Thought Disorder and over-analyzing things to break them down and find solutions to every problem kr chalkenge evidently started to include "feeling feelings" as relevant "challenges" to break down via analysis. Crying was impossible. Then last June I got had my 10th TBI, and something changed. All of the sudden, I was crying at everything. Happy things, sad memories, references to the last car wreck, fits of frustration with social issues or ADHD/ASD frustration tolerance meltdowns, dog videos on instagram, every single episode of How To ADHD on YouTube, things friends said, every time I meditated, whenever I'd write something I felt was profound for myself... It was like any time I allowed myself to feel a feeling, it just came along with it. I'm not saying get brain-damage-level head trauma 10 times... But... Thats what did it for me. My personality changed. The BPD-esque anger just disappeared. Now it's hard to even associate with people from my past because they think I'm someone I'm not any more, and I don't know how to explain it to them. And now I'm welling up again 🥲🥹

    Yes I understand to a degree, I suppress my emotions so damn much I just rarely cry,and I help others instead of helping me so I'm hurting inside

    I am the same way. The only time I really cry anymore is talking about my deceased mother or dog. And even this, it’s a hit or miss on if I cry or not. It’s very frustrating at times.

    Yea, I know when I should cry & I absolutely cannot force myself to do so. I suppress my emotions everywhere & do a great job hiding my mental health. Almost wish someone would beat me to a pulp or pinch me as hard as they could until I do cry😥
