    Have Done So In Work A Good Few Times...

    For the following reasons: 1. When things get too much with a co worker I have issues with at the moment. Sometimes I get very hurt and upset by the situation I am in with this person. 2. When I had toothache and was in a lot of pain. My co workers knew but didn't know how bad...

    All The Time

    I cry in the bathroom like on a daily basis.When I have panic attacks, I hide in there.My parents found me on the bathroom floor once and thought I was dying. But really all that had happened was that I had fainted, silly parents of mine.

    Safe Place.

    I retreat to restrooms to cry my heart out because I don't want you to interpret this as a sign of weakness. My tears do not make me weak; if anything, they imbue me with the strength to go forward with a lighter heart and a broader perspective. My tears are a physical release...

    All The Time

    It's the only place in my house where I have to cry without someone seeing me. I won't let my daughter see me break down so I lock myself in the bathroom and let it all out. Too many times I have curled up on the shower floor and cried for what seemed like forever.

    I Live With My Best Friends . . . .

    So when I need to cry about things they wont understand or I wont have to explain . . . I just cry in the shower . . . . I feel so much better  . . . . crying every now and then gives me comfort that I have emotions . . .

    Sometimes

    If I'm together with other people it sometimes all gets too much.. So I go to the bathroom and cry a little.. i think it helps a bit to get the pressure down.. It's a weird habit somehow.. But the bathroom is the only place where you aren't disturbed by anybody.

    I don't remember the last time that I cried in front of anyone. I love my girlfriend very much, but she has never seen me cry. The bathroom is my best friend when I need to cry.
