Here's a Weird One: No Tears


Recommended Posts

Hey--

 

This is different stuff than the post I just made a minute ago.

 

During two C/Ts and this one taper, I have NEVER had crying spells. Permutations of anxiety and anger (at the anxiety) were about all I felt. I know that rebound emotions are stronger than the originals, but the absence of tearfulness is puzzling--there is a lot to be sad about, namely the loss of a possibly productive life, plus the grief all of this has caused my family.

 

What's up? I vacillate between angry and somewhat dry. Being around groups of ppl who are familiar to me but not exactly friends causes some hostility mixed with something else, a no-name emotion. I'm vaguely depressed right now, but not so much that it calls for an MD's attention. No idea what is going on.

 

Again, thnak you.

Hi there, I could not cry at all, not one tear, for several months after off meds. I had reasons to cry too, lots of loss and regrets. I still hardly ever cry, it doesnt bring any relief or release for me. I think for me its has physiological and emotional roots. I felt very literally dry too. I always have been one to hold on tight to emotions like crying, did not want anyone to see me cry. My mom would try to make me cry, so I refused to. I hope it helps a little to know you are not the only one who doesnt cry. I hope your life gets better soon. I understand from your posts your in a tough position.

I, too, could not shed a tear.  Actually, I was too afraid to cry......figured I would never stop.  But, anyway, it has only been the last month that I was able to cry and it has been almost 3 years.

Do not worry about not crying right now.. When it happens it will come out.. You cannnot force it... I am thinking of you now and hope you feel better soon.. I am the opposite of you.... I cannot stop crying.. We are all differenct.. This too shall pass.

Stay strong.. God is with you.. I am too.

Luv, Mishi

This is where I differ.

 

I can cry very easily.

 

When I was on Klonopin, I could as well.

 

Hang in there!

Thanks, guys--

 

Here's a weirdie for today: at night, after I take trazadone, I'm sort of overwhelmed with sinus problems and, for the lack of a better expression, leaky eyes. Do not think it's allergens, but rather an idiosyncratic response to the traz. I couldn't sleep without it, so I must take it, given my situation. And I do cry a bit.

 

I suspect that it will, as you said, all come out. Hope that will be a private thing. I'm a messy weeper.

 

Love to all of you. I mean that. I write out my prayer list as my days go on, but you Buddies are all in my thoughts as I lay down.
