    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...

    They say it's the ultimate release of sorts.

    I read on a website about healing that in order to do so you must first learn about crying and releasing the pain. There I was last night, in a pretty rough state, sharing things I don't think I've told many people about and actually feeling safe. She held me so tight and...

    I Legitly Can't.

    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 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 Think I Have Just Gone Numb...

    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...

    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...

    Not Worth The Clean-up

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

    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.
