    Weakness And Headaches

    I don't cry, in 9 years I can count on one hand how many times I have. Crying to me means weakness and it just leaves me with a massive headache.

    Cry: Not Me

    I never let myself cry. I have been told that it would release a lot of pent up energy. I cant. I'm embarrassed to. I am scared that other things will come out with it. How can I feel better.

    Very Rarly

    I think I don't have that much emotion in me. When I went to a furnarel I didn't cry. When I went to a candle light vigel I didn't cry. But when I did cry was when I was cheated on and it was painful!! I'd rather be emotionless then to feel depressed all the time. At the time I...

    Broken Hearts

    I was in a horrible relationship where i was reduced to tears almost daily. If i wasn't miserable, i was lonely, frightened, hurt, being insulted, talked down to or (more than anything else) frustrated and distraught. It was like banging my head against a wall trying to get...

    You Lose

    In my family, showing emotion or crying is basically forbidden. If you cry, you are a loser and a baby, nothing more than a whining wimp that needs to grow a pair and get over it. At least that's how it is if you cry in front of my dad. My mom on the other hand, finds that if she...

    All Dried Up

    I was such a crybaby when I was little.  Kids at school loved to get me started.  Seems like I never cried unless I was at school with my so-called peers.  Now I can't cry at all.  And I'm supposed to be depressed!  My biggest fear is that...

    1 1/2 Year

    It's been a year and a half and, while I've had some instances where I've felt like crying, I haven't.  And before that year and a half, it was only a year and that year seemed like forever to go without crying, but now, it's like it doesn't even matter.  Like...

    Years ago I made a promise with my own blood.

    That promise was to never cry again. I used to be a cry baby though i did have a hard past. One day i cried in front of my brother and he gave me the most pitying look iv ever seen. So I took a sharp scissor and plunged it into my hand and i started bleeding. And with that blood...

    The Well Dried Up

    Within my innocent youth I found that my tears were my only companions. Now, that seems to be quite the contrary. Only huge, emotional disasters are able to draw sorrow from my eyes, yet even still, they never stay for long. The past took a toll on my heart and turned it bitter...

    Unable

    I don't cry because I can't.  That's another effect from my wreck.  I can't produce tears anymore-I just get bad headaches.

    2 Yearsish

    It's been about 2 years since I've cried, and that was only because I broke my leg. Crying due to emotional reasons? Not since I wasd 10 I would say.   It just doesn't seem like a natural response to trauma for me, shutting down is my first response.

    I Can't Let It Out Because I Don't Let It In

    I don't cry. But not because I don't have the ability to, and not because I've grown up being told not to, but because I feel as though it is not worth my time. I've been to the ends of the earth and back, and I've realized that in this life, the only life that we will ever see...
