    I think it is beautiful that we are all so comfortable here on the board to be perfectly honest about out emotions and tears and it is so healthy. That is why I enjoy coming on, everyone is so kind and caring I just love to be on with everyone.

    Thanks to all.

    Then it looks as though I'm unhappy. I rarely ever cry. I often wish I could. I know I'd feel better. Couldn't even cry when my DH passed on. I am definitely not hard-hearted but I just can't cry. I keep my emotions all bottled up and I know that isn't good.

    I'm a crier too. It's gotten much worse since DD was born.

    I am a huge crier. I cry over everything. My dad was a very emotional man and it embarrassed him to no end. I think it's harder for fuys. My son burst into tears when he saw his wife to be in her wedding dress at the wedding. I was doing fine until he started and then look out. Yesterday when Diane posted about her DH drowning, I was bawling like a baby. Sometimes it annoys me.

    Yesterday, I went to the card store and ended up crying while reading all the cards. An adolescent girl happened to walk down that isle and gave me a strange look. In my earlier days, it would have embarrassed me. But yesterday it struck me as really funny, which just made me cry even more.
    must be hormones
    i only cry once in a while. i had to toughen up for a few years to get through some stuff..
    i cry at watching movies..brians song..forest gump etc..and yes it feels good to get it all out. it is a release.

    Most of my adult life I coiuldn't cry worked in a prision and had to appear tough. Later I was very depressed and cried if someone spoke to me took depression pills and learned to control my emotions than when I had triple by pass was told to be prepared for my emotions to run away with me. I thought I was too tough for that but I cant control my crying anymore. Somrtimes I cry for no reason at all, but mostly cry when I am very mad or tired sometimes I let a sad movie get to me. Usually I find crying very cleansing

    I cry at anything Patriotic. And watch out if it is about a military person coming home and it shows the reunion with family (especially if children are involved) and I mean heaving sobs. My kids laugh at me.

    It is so nice to know.... I'm not alone!.... in this crying thing I do. Oh my sister does too! I guess we've always figured it was just a family thing we had in common! Apparently our "family" just expanded to everyone on this board that cries!

    At most funerals I don't cry I sob. My face gets all red and puffy. I also cry at weddings. In order to not cry I find something to think about and don't listen to the words. I use to cry a lot but not so much any more. It could be life is better, not so much to cry about or I know crying won't make the problem better. I am pleased to say I didn't cry at my daughters wedding last year. She was already crying when she was getting dressed. I had to just stay away from her and not talk to her or both of us would have had major water works. I missed having a special time with her before the wedding but I had to do it.

    Not usually, not even after "surgical menopause" when I was 36. It takes a LOT to get me to cry, and I'm more likely to cry from frustration than from sadness.

    That said, there's one thing that'll push me over the edge every time: animals being mistreated. I can't even watch that ASPCA commercial with the "Arms of an Angel" song. Tearing up just thinking about it. :cry:

    I have cried more in the past 12 months, since my brother died, than I have cried in the previous 50 years. I cry for his children who will never know (as adults) what a really good bloke he was.

    I have always been a crier, big time. You can tell me a sad story, I will cry. You cry, I cry. I cry at movies, books, anything sad. I have found that if the story (or whatever) relates to something I have experienced, I don't cry, I sob.

    Sometimes when I am frustrated or overwelmed, a good cry helps clear the air. I guess it is a release.

    Many years ago I adopted my dear Aunt's philosophy, "Cryin' never helped fix a thing".

    I am a lllooonnnngggg time cryer. I cried at Bambi when it first came out and I was just a kid. The family used to hate sitting behind me watching a movie on TV, because I would start to cry at anything. I learned to NOT read Reader's Digest at work because I would cry over some of the stories in it. I even cry at commercials. I even wake up at night crying in real life from a dream in which I was crying.
