How do you make yourself cry?


#1

I’m depressed. I want to lay in bed and cry all day. I think a good cry would make me feel better. But I can’t cry. I haven’t been able to cry much since starting the perphenazine. It makes me pretty flat. But I want to cry. I want to feel that release.

What do you do to make yourself cry? Sad movies? Pain? I need ideas. I want to have a good cry.

The thing that works for me is when I watch the Romanian revolution from 1989.

I have no idea how to make yourself cry but i totally understand not being able to. I have been that way for years. Even if i feel like i need to cry, it just won’t happen.

it is sad when similar pleasurable sensory perceptions are said to be alike.

I can’t cry either. It really bugs me, and I’m scared it makes me look callous.

There’s a song that makes me cry because it triggers so many bad memories, but I haven’t listened to it in 10 years.

You don’t have to feel like a waste of space
You’re original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Shopping at superstore makes me cry. Otherwise I don’t really cry. Occasionally a sad video makes me teary but I don’t actually cry.

Same I am usually unable to cry even when I feel horrible. The only things that seem to let me cry are substances (ie like alcohol) or people. I can talk about a painful topic to myself and not cry but as soon as I bring it up to another person it’s like I can’t control the floodworks. It’s crazy. Like I need other people to be able to actually express emotion.

It made me really hesistant to share anything for a long time though because it shocked me when I’d suddenly start crying or shaking.
