Can you cry,when you feel like it?

Wondering,because I can't usually cry. I just had a horrible time w/my kids. I want to but I can't. What does it mean when a person can't cry?

  • Sometimes I can't cry. Most of the time it's the opposite though. i don't want to cry but I break down and do.
    I don't think there's anything wrong with you, you may just need to find another outlet to get those feelings out. You should get a heavy bag and punch the crap out of it when you feel like you need to cry but can't.

  • I've felt like this before. It was really weird...and then when I finally did cry, I couldn't stop. It'll eventually come.

  • I feel better after a cry. But , to answer your question, i don't think it matters that you don't feel able to cry, everybody is different. I cry a lot these days because i smoke while pregnant and feel down about the situation. For me though, i don't want people knowing i have cried, so it's something i keep to myself.

  • I think the only reason I can cry and get it out is because i'm pregnant right now and probably more hormonal...so it comes easier. Before this I stopped being able to cry. I guess when a person cries so much and nobody hears it, it makes it less meaningful and you feel like, why does it matter if nobody will hear me.

  • I can cry whenever I want, unless I am on depression/anxiety meds...then I can't cry. Are you on any meds that may be preventing it?
