Think my AP’s numb me. I didn’t cry when my Dad died.
Yes I get emotional.
really depends on my mood, if I’m in depression I will, some depends on how it happened or how I felt about the person.
Never cried at a funeral have shed some tears recently. Among the chaos of a trial reduction (half my medication) My Dad died two friends committed suicide and my Aunt died after that was in a three year period. Karen’s suicide was 5 years ago (to give a time line). Wish I could say I handled it well but far from the truth. Still shedding a few tears every now and then.
It completely depends on who the person was that died, for me.
Its ok that you haven’t cried yet, people morn in their own ways, and deal with things differently. I understand how you feel though about the numbing of antipsychotics
Generally not right away. Shock will hold it back for days or weeks, but it always eventually catches up with me.
I still cry for pets that have died years later.
Of course I cry when people that are close to me pass away.
I especially cried when my dogs died - put to sleep, etc …
It hit me very hard when I had to give my dog - best friend away recently.
My father was also deeply affected by it as well.
We cried for days.
God, how I miss that dog …
I didn’t cry the day my Dad died. I cried 3 days later.
when my grandmother passed away, I don’t remember crying. Though thinking about her death makes me feel a little lonely. she was one of the only people that I could run to, when my mom hurt me, during childhood.
I don’t know much about the media, so I don’t know much about other people’s deaths outside my family.
If my dad died I would cry
I am a big “cryer”. sometimes I’m still in shock and don’t cry until later after the funeral…
Once I start crying, it’s hard to stop. If I didn’t stop myself, it feels like I would just keep crying forever.
I’m so very sorry for your loss. There are no rules to grief and loss. Mourning is one of those lonely/solitary experiences that you have to do in your own way, and in your own time.
What a horrible period of extreme loss for you, @Dreamscape2. So sorry. ️
I’m sorry @Dreamscape2 …
It must have been very hard for you
I hope that you are doing better now
I loved my Dad but he had been fighting cancer for 20 years and the radiation put him in a wheelchair . He was in his 80’s and my mom was getting to the point she couldn’t care for him. I believe in God so I believe he has an afterlife and the opportunity to spend it with God if he wishes to. I hate to say it but I think it was just his time. The family was there as he faded away over the course of about 5 days. He died in the house we grew up in painlessly and in peace. I miss him but just didn’t experience the deep greaf that most people do. I kinda have come to peace with death I really don’t know if I’m able to cry.
It’s ok if you didn’t cry @5713
You loved your Dad and mourn his passing in your own way.
This is what matters.
I’m sorry for your loss @5713
I tried to not get depressed about my friends death the evening I heard about it. I started doing dishes and the They Might Be Giants song that reminds me of him came on and I cried hard. I still miss him.
I lost another friend this week. I’ve only cried once about her. It was such a shock. She was only 27 years old. Scott was 39.
Don’t be ashamed if you don’t cry that much Sz causes us to have a flat affect. That’s what I attribute to being so numb sometimes.
My dad was very mean to me, so when he died I didn’t cry. However, if someone I know, or a celebrity, passes away who made me feel that they cared about me, made me feel hope, made me feel that it truly is a wonderful life, then I cry so much I literally run out of tears.
The deaths of Princess Diana and Robin Williams made me cry.
I’m too busy trying not to kill myself to have any feelings for someone else. If they cured me tomorrow I would be the sweetest most empathetic person on the planet
I cried for months after my dad died. To make matters worse my ex husband told me that I had a month to get over my dad’s death.
