 Do you cry easily? Do you cry when you are happy as well as sad or are you more apt to cry in once case over another? The reason I ask is because I'm really NOT a crier. As a young child I was ridiculed for crying (by my parents) and was told if I cried they would give me something to cry about. I learned to stifle my tears and show little emotions. I seldom really CRY even when something horrific happens. It's not that I don't feel the pain, grief, but I just don't cry. On the contrary...when something touches my soft spot (usually has to do with kids) or when something is very sentimental or a very warm and generous gesture is made...I cry like a baby. So I guess I'm a happy crier...not a sad crier. What about you?

I cry pretty easily, but I wasn't allowed to cry in front of my ex husband, so I'd turn on the shower or go for a walk and cry in secret. It happened a lot.

Happy or sad or whatever I cry.

I am a crier. Happy and sad :) It is hard for me to hold back the tears, they just start rolling as soon as I get happy or sad. I am amazed that I am not dehydrated yet. LOL!

I never use to cry, we weren't allowed as children to cry. Our parents would punish us if we did. And since they were alcoholics it was bad.

But since getting cancer I cry all the time when I'm happy sad mad my husband can't stand it. It doesn't help with all the medications I still take.
