I Go to the Bathroom to Cry

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 36 People

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Dad heard mom tell me this over the weekend. Mom caught me in her purse again, and I wound up across dads lap, and I got something to cry about. A good spanking.

    Its a habit that is with me from my child hood onwards.... Never cry in front of others to give them the pleasure of hurting me.

    I don't like people seeing me cry because they act like they and fix it when they can't. it makes me feel worse to let someone see me cry. To me its showing them that I am weak.
