Do you ever just feel like crying and you don't know why?

Not that time of the month, kids are great, no marriage issues, bills are paid...but I am such a mess! My emotions are just crazy lately!

(not really a fun question, but not sure what category this would fall into)

  • if its been going on for 2 or more weeks it would be considered depression in which you should see a doctor, of anything just to get a good counselor to talk with. but, part of life is that sometimes you just feel depressed. try some st. johns wort.. its supposed to help with depression. its an OTC herb.

  • Yes, I do and I;ve spoke to others who have felt the same lately. Some are wondering if it is SAD. We really didn't have much of a summer and not the fall is just around the corner, days are getting really short and soon we will be indoors a lot due to the colder weather. Lack of sun shine and short on vitamin D. Have you thought about a SAD light? Good luck.

  • it happens to me a lot. i dunno whats wrong w/ me, but im not depressed & things have really turned up for us lately. its like every single thing (no matter how small) really gets to me...especially stuff on tv...and sometimes its for no reason at all. i never had this problem till i had my DD, so i blame it on that haha. i use to be able to keep from crying no matter what i was feeling but then i popped out that baby & its crying-for-no-reason central!

  • I would think it's depression unless your pregnant. I was depressed once upon a time and that is how I was. I went to doc and got med and got better, so good luck and be happy! :)

  • i cry all the time. but then again I am 23 weeks pregnant and my hubby is deployed.

    it definitly sounds like something is going on with you though. it won't hurt to talk to your doctor about it, they can probably find a way to get you some relief.

    Yes, I tend to cry for no reason or over little things. I don't know if it's hormonal or just my sensitivity, but sometimes I chuckle about it once I've got it out of my system.
    Let it out so you can feel refreshed after. :)
