    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...

    I Restrain Myself For Fear of Drowning

    If I cried as much as I wanted to, I would get nothing done. If I allow myself to succumb to the horrible lurking nasty thoughts and fears at the back of head-  let my guard down for just one minute I'd cry and cry and never stop. I'm naturally a very weepy person and I...

    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 am 25 and my life is a joke. I am single, have no friends left, still live at home and have no social life. I feel so angry and frustrated with myself and deserve to be punished. I want to cry but what would be the point? There is no one here who will understand or who will...

    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 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...
