Why cant I cry? - October 20th 2017, 10:27 AM

Basically I haven't cried in years, with depression and a bunch of other shit but I haven't cried even when I have tried two (heard it helps) plus their are times I felt like I should be crying but wasn't my eyes were just sore at most. (almost cried once but stopped myself idk why, it was because I got overwhelmed long story short)

does anyone know why this is or what could be causing it?

Thanks in Advance

Hello, I am so sorry that you are having a hard time right now. With depression it can make you sad and hurt and feel different things and one of those things can be sadness and you don't know what to do and when you're feeling different things you don't always know why you're feeling so down and sad you just want it to stop and go away. And I understand what you're saying and I'm sorry that you're having a hard time with this right now and you're going through this right now. Also when we have a lot going on in school, new work and it's harder that can bring us down because we are having a hard time. If you are in a school sport and it's harder, this can make you have a hard time. Also if you're having a hard time at home, not getting along with someone, for example you're parents or siblings, this can also make you upset. If you are getting yelled at by someone, that can also hurt you. It's different things that happen to us like this or whatever is going on with us and we are just keeping it to ourselves and not talking about it and then it hurts us and makes us really upset. Then we don't know what to do anymore and please don't be too hard on yourself. You need to find a way to let it out, if you can try talking to you're school counselor to also help you.
When you are feeling like this and you are not sure what to do, you want to try to find things that can pick you up and help you find some happiness. Do you like to draw or write? Because if you do or you can try them, you are focusing on doing this and not on being upset and it can pick you up a little bit. I know that it's hard at first, it will not just instantly make you happy but it can help. Also you can put on a funny movie or TV show to help you too. Do you have friends that you can be around to give you support. I hope that you will be ok soon. Hugs.
