Couldn't Stop!

I sobbed as much as I have ever done in my whole life just the other day......I hope that it never gets that bad again.

I'm on the up again now, hopefully.

Thank you all for your comments...this was over a year ago now, and while I do tend to cry easily and find it a release, the nature of that episode was far far worse than anything I have experienced before.Two days of uncontrollable sobbing ...the gut wrenching sort, and very very black.<br />

Hi R3!! Thanks for the rainbows and roses!

NOTHING LIKE A GOOD CRY .... IT IS A RELIEF TO LET IT ALL OUT .. AND HEALTHY TOO.<br />

So are you saying that you started cryig out of the blue? Even so, I now that people can be hypersensitive and tale alot of things in. Its a matter how you understand the situation and how to act appropiately. I still feel that crying is a protection mechanism that keeps you from bottling everything in

Thanks Ladee and Enna ....its nice to be back!! : )

I agree that it is a natural release but at that deep awful level is something I never wish to repeat! A year has passed nearly since I wrote that and it did mean that I finally sought help.

Lost bird, you didn't mention why you were crying uncontrolablable. There is nothing wrong with crtying and there is no way to gauge the level of crying. It depends on your threshhold for physical and emotional pain. Each person is different. You are right, crying is good for the soul and it is also good for your mind. Its a natural release mechanism that helps keep things in check. Its also good for the heart too, because the stress is lowered as well.

Thank you hasstings.....so far so good, I have a long way to go still and have had more lows, (and some highs!) but none so bad as that one.<br />
I don't want ever to go there again.

I hope you're right about being on the up, now. Good luck. Maybe the worst is past.

I hope so.......my life is changing in a way that I didn't expect and its pretty scary....

It was extremely terrifying....started in the shower and lasted for two days, I hope to goodness it is purifying.I do feel letting it out is better than keeping it in.....its just the enormity of all there is to let out that's getting to me!Feeling a bit weepy again now because of yet another thing happening tonight. I just hope this time doesn't end up as bad...
