      It’s really hard for me to cry unless I sit down and really force myself when I’m alone.

      Sometimes I wish I could cry. Don't know the last time I did ...I feel that I've been desensitized over the years. I internalize instead causing my fibromyalgia. Prolonged emotional stress brought about my fibro...

      I know I do

      I cry a lot! Although I think it’s bc I’ve tried to suppress it all my life. My dad hates it when people cry bc he’s traumatized from his childhood… constantly being told “men don’t cry!” And that if he did cry he’d get beat. So every time I would cry he’d get really mad. I would try to hold it in as much as I could, but no matter what I would do nothing but cry. When I was really little I never cried. It got worse bc I couldn’t hold it in anymore bc I was depressed as a teenager. I still struggle with this, but I recommend letting your emotions/feelings out!

        @LoveMyu I am married and my husband does not check up on me when I'm crying or could care less. And that upsets me more too so I pretty much try to do it in the tub when the water is running or the shower. I purposely do it in there when I feel it coming

        @LoveMyu same. I learned to cry for the first time at 19 after I spent some time away from former family unit. It was scary and uncontrollable at first but now I find it liberating at times. A tool your body uses to diffuse emotional tension inside.

        • IndigoBro

          642d

          @IndigoBro Often is the first thing I get after coming out of apathy. Because crying often happens when I’m overwhelmed and emotions are overwhelming, especially when you don’t know how to handle them.

        @LoveMyu I’m sorry you have felt like you had to keep your feelings in. You’re right though please let your feelings out as well. Taking to someone about how you feel helps too

      Sometimes, it really depends on how stressed out I am, the more stress I'm under, the more the depression feeds off of it

      • Unknow

        643d

        @Petrina yes and vice versa and to add chronic pain to it too

    • merb

      Yes. I cry like crazy when I'm depressed. I'm really sensitive when depressed too. Hope this helps and hope you feel better.

      • Jennynicole345

        642d

        @merb aww thank you it does help. I hope you feel better too

      When depressed we got to do something that's good for ourselves and our body. We got to eat some healthy stuff and protein, quality protein, it's supposed to help with depression. When I eat beans for some reason they do make me feel better for the moment. Also if we could get some kind of exercise it can help us. So sometimes my exercise is whatever I can accomplish in my own living space. Simple thing cleaning a toilet, sink, today I did my dishes, I have used those germ wipes and put them on the floor and stand on them and slide around on the floor to clean it and that's like exercise

      • Jennynicole345

        642d

        @Unknow that’s really helpful. I think I will try exercising more often

      The dumbest things make me think about other, more depressing things and the cycle goes on and on.

    • Ashiz1989

      Idk how not to cry. The littlest things and im balling. I hate it. It makes me so angry. Idk how to control it though. It's embarrassing.

      • Jennynicole345

        642d

        @Ashiz1989 I feel embarrassed about it too

      • Unknow

        643d

        @Ashiz1989 actually it sounds like you're severely depressed for crying that easily and not much. What has happened that broke the camel's back that it's hard for you to feel so-called normal? If I get severe depression and cried a lot then it's hard to get back to my so-called normal place of depression. It takes some time to recover myself. Are you on any medication? Have you called your doctor? Please please please get a hold of professional. Otherwise my first thought was if you're a girl and you're young, I thought maybe you could be pregnant because some pregnant women do cry a lot. No joking

        @Ashiz1989 there with you. . .😞

      so it just depends on what time it is lmao, if its past 11 pm, yes i will sob at everything but if its before then it will take some heavy emotional damage

    • Unknow

      Sometimes instead of crying I end up getting angry. That is also part of depression

    • carrielovelylady

      644d

      Sometimes I go long periods of time where I can't cry and other times it's as if I can't stop. For me it depends on the medication. Going off of an antidepressant or starting up another one I tend to cry more but usually even when I'm terribly miserable I can't cry.

    • IndigoBro

      I find depression can cause us not to take care of ourselves. Lack of sleep, lack of food eventually leads to hysteria/crying.

    • Unknow

      644d

      If I haven't slept what is so called normal for me. I have insomnia but I do get some kind of sleep but if the insomnia is worser then I have migraines and crying spells

    • Awessa

      644d

      Yes

    • midgetstitch

      Thats 100% me. But I also believe I'm an empath and take on other emotions as well

    • bugger

      644d

      For me, I feel like it's harder to cry or feel anything. Just apathetic.

      • Jennynicole345

        644d

        @bugger aww I’m sorry. I feel like that would be hard on you too
