    Haven't In Years

    The last time I cried was at my father's funeral in January of '06. It's been a long time, and I've been through a lot, but I still don't ever seem to cry, even though I'd sometimes like to.

    I Dont Really Know Why

    have and all this other stuff I get mad alot and I get sad and depressed. I really never cry though. Not at funerals never. I had to make myself look like I was crying at my Grandma's funeral. With all the emotions I feel you would think I would cry more often. The last time I...

    ...seriously, Like, Maybe Twice Per Decade

    I don't really know why my emotions are stunted, but I hardly ever, and I mean ever, cry, and when I do it will be triggered by the oddest circumstances. I had already been married a couple of years the first time my wife saw me cry, and that was at a county fair, when I passed...

    Why Can't I Cry?

    Ever since my life started in high school I have started to become more closed off to people around me. I don't talk to many people or show any kind of emotion when required, for example at my grandfather's funeral everyone else was in tears and I just stood there blankly not...

    I've cried twice in the past 12 years

    and both were from anger. I don't cry and I honestly don't know how to cry. The weird thing is that I have had a lot of traumatic things happen and for years I had the most severe form of bipolar (ultra-ultra rapid cycling.) I didn't cry when my nephew died, I didn't cry when...

    What Is It Like To Cry From Emotions?

    I know how it sounds, but aside from getting spankings as a child, I've never cried in my life. The last time I've cried, including spankings, was close to 10 or 11 years ago in middle school, and that was because I had forced tears to come out of my eyes. I've never shed a tear...

    I Don't Cry Often, But I Am Crying Now

    Frozen Tears.

    I was bullied for crying excessively as a child. Because of this I have grown up believing that it is pathetic and weak to cry all the time. Sometimes I want to cry but cannot. I still do cry, but only about once a month when I am extremely stressed out or depressed. Dissociating...
