How often do you cry? - May 2nd 2010, 08:07 PM

This isn't me asking about whether you think I have depression, I just thought this would be the most appropriate place to put it but feel free ot move if I'm wrong. It's just, I cry a lot, like pretty much every day and I don't know how normal that is. That got me thinking and wondering how often (approximately of course) other poeple tend to cry. I really don't know if it's a big problem or not

Crying isn't a problem. Crying is actually a solution. Crying releases all the chemicals that build up in your brain when you feel emotions. Like, medically, it's good for your body.

I cry a lot too. It's okay to cry. If you think you have depression, though, I suggest you see someone.

I admit, I cry a few times a week. Don't always have reason to, but sometimes it feels good to let it all out.

I don't cry very often, but I wish I did. I wish that I could cry when I was depressed. No matter how hard I try to assure myself it's okay, I just can't bring myself to. I don't know why.

when you want to cry but it won't come, try coaxing it out with a little bit of pre-cry heaving :P that usually works.

But seriously, GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION. It works. talk to yourself like you are a little baby and say it's okay sweetie you can cry it's okay. Stuff like that. It helps.

I used to cry every night. Then it got to the point where I rarely cry anymore, even if I reallllly wanted too. Then when I do cry, I feel so much better for a little bit.

if my brain had it's way, i would be crying everyday. but well i control it to once every week if possible, because i can't let my roomates know that i'm crying, so i had to wait til everyone's asleep before crying. or the toilet, sometimes.

I feel this same way. Sometimes I can cry, other times I want to, but I won't. My body won't let me. So how often? Some weeks, a couple times, some weeks a few times, some weeks not at all. Guess it depends on the events.

I can't cry. I don't know why, but I haven't done it in over a year (I think.) It would take something like a severe injury or a tragic event like death, probably.

I cry a lot. Every other day, usually. And when I start crying, usually I can't stop for hours. D= Usually I cry at night, that's when I feel most down, probably since I'm alone. Crying should never be seen as a bad thing. If the emotions that are causing your crying are having an extreme impact on your life besides the occasional blues, though, then it may be something a bit more serious.

I used to cry at least every other day when I was first diagnosed with depression. I don't cry so much right now because I want to keep a good face, and I believe have gotten stronger and put the sad thoughts in my head to something more positive. It's ironic cause I'm tearing up a bit right now. xD

Umm, sometimes I have these weeks when I cry alone a little more often. Usually, it's a last resort for me. When I'm just hanging on. I don't cry often.

When i had like severe depression i never used to cry like at all, was so strange.

But now, it still takes a lot for me to cry for a proper reason like if somethings actually up, but just like a few tears at movies, or something, like ALL the time haah

I always cry. it makes me feel so much better.
i used to cry everyday and it was great for me because crying actually gives off endorphins with makes you happy.
but now i just can't seem to cry as much. /:

I used to cry about 3/4 times a week. Now I'm on anti-depressants the only times I've cried in the past three months were when I had been really angry or cried watching a film/tv show.

LOL I cried last night after watching last week's episode of "10 Things I Hate About You" (the part where their dad give them both flowers and wrote "Kat + Bianca's dad" on his shirt I thought it was sweet.

Re: How often do you cry? - May 5th 2010, 10:15 AM

I don't let myself cry. If and when I do cry, I make sure I am alone. And, it's a little weird, but I find these shallow 'don't really matter' reasons to cry (i.e. I can't find my favourite pen) and tell myself that I am crying for that reason just so I don't have to think about the real reason I am crying. I'm not sure that any of that makes sense but.. mhm. I usually blame it all on my allergies. (i.e. Your eyes are red.. have you been crying? Oh.. naw, my allergies are acting up. I've been sneezing all morning) My allergies act up more than I cry anyway so.. I'm not that bad for lying.. right?

That said, I don't find anything wrong with crying. I just have a problem with doing it myself. It makes me feel weak. But I find people who cry strong. So I'm really contradicting myself in a way.. But, yes. I'd like to be able to cry everytime I feel like crap, or just need a release. But I'm paranoid that someday my tears won't matter anymore and that people will think I'm crying 'just because'. So I hold things in. Whatever happens, happens.

I used to try and force myself not to cry so now it's pretty hard for me to actually let myself cry. It's like, I know there isn't anything wrong with crying and I actually think it takes a lot of courage to let yourself...but then when it comes to me, I just can't let myself. If I do cry it's normally when I'm drunk

Crying lets out tension, it's a means of release, it's actually healthy.

I cry very often, usually at least once a day.

It really varies for me. When I was at my most depressed, I'd literally have tears in my eyes all day and breakdown completely two or three times a day. Right now, I probably cry about once a week, if that.

If I'm going through a really bad depression period it can be once a day or once every two days, but if I'm not it's not very often at all. I've only cried three or four times since October, I think.

It really depends on what's been happening. A lot of nights if I can't sleep, I'll be thinking and just start without realising.
Though lately I've had to try really hard not to cry in front of my teachers, that would be too embarrassing

I cry like once a week I'd say.



When all your friends have come and gone,
And the sun no longer shines,
And the happiness for which you long is washed away like an ocean's tide,
When all the hard times outweigh the good,
And all your words are misunderstood,
When the day seems lost from the start
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.

Re: How often do you cry? - May 6th 2010, 08:50 PM

I cry a lot. A cry even though I don't want to. But I always feel a little better after a good crying session


*And when the door begins to crack, it's like a stick across your back. And when your back begins to smart, it's like a penknife in your heart. And when your heart begins to bleed, you're dead, and dead, and dead indeed.*
