    Harsh Reality About Boys!

    I am sure, I am not the only boy with this nature! we boys have to control our feelings and not cry because we are supposed to be stronger and crying is a sign of weakness.

    Lithium

    I am Bipolar. I have taken many drugs as these things go, just to find my right chemical cocktail. I finally settled with Lithium. It seems to stabilize me and the only side effects are weight gain and the ability to NOT feel. I can't cry. I have had very sad and bad things...

    I Legitly Can't.

    It's like I physically can't anymore. I don't know, last month I cried so much I think I might be all out of tears for a long time. Whenever I feel sad and like I'm going to cry, the tears just don't come out. But I still start shaking and have that awful feeling of heartache In...

    Too Strong

    I have always been the strong one in my group of friends. I have a hard time being emotionally vulnerable because I was emotionally neglected as a child. I want to cry, but I refuse to let anyone see me cry. If they saw me cry, I would be vulnerable, I wouldn't be that strong...

    I Want To Cry...

    Dear readers, My name is Robert, I am 19. For a while now, since about when I was 15. I first learned to feel, learned to appreciate and learned to value. Through the transformation period of my life, I think I have experienced many things. Although, they are not as critical as...

    I Keep Books and Videos Around For This...

    I have an entire TV series of a hard drive just to cry to. I have reason to cry in my life, but it's so hard to wrap my head around it, I can't. I read the end of 'Where The Red Fern Grows" multiple times just to cry. I'm probably going to watch 'Air' later this week...

    Not Worth The Clean-up

    I would like to cry. My eyes bleed when I cry though. So, not really worth it.

    I Toughen Myself Up Sometimes.

    I don't like to cry. But sometimes I feel the need to cry. To release that hurtful emotional pain inside me. But once I start crying, I feel better. Lately I've been "burying" my problems in my yard and keeping my problems to myself and deal with it on my own. For two and a...

    A girl in my school killed herself last night.

    She only was a sophomore. I've talked to her a few times but never thought of anything. I don't know what to think anymore.

    I came across an old picture today.It was your first Halloween. You in your little Devil's costume with a big, sly smile; Mommy and Daddy beaming proudly in the background. I remember that day like it was yesterday. The cold, crisp air. Everything then was so definite. So...
