Yes. It goes hand-in-hand with depression.

Usually linked with depression. Or sometimes you think you’re crying for no reason but there’s an underlying issue that has brought it on (stress, relationships, finances, etc). I would say that if it continues to go and see your doctor.

usually yes.
the thing is you may think it doesnt
have a reason, but deep down there is.

Not without a reason. Sorry, hang in there!

I used to think that I wanted to for no reason.
Then a friend gave me the advice to next time I felt that way, I should really think about why I was sad and write it down so I could remember.
I found that I had a few underlying issues that I was dealing with from past traumatic experiences. I would suggest that you either write down why, or just keep it in your mind so you can evaluate it later

It’s usually hormonally related for me.

This very thing has been happening to me a lot recently. But I’m not depressed. I’m the type of person who suppresses negative feelings and conflict, so much that I’m not aware that I’m experiencing them. That is until it all builds up, something triggers me, and seemingly out of nowhere I have a little emotional meltdown. Only once this happens can I acknowledge that something must be wrong, and I try and evaluate the most recent things that have been running through my head and which may be the cause of my emotional distress. It’s a little backwards, but nothing terribly dysfunctional, I hope. lol.

This reminds me of a quote i heard once…
“Tears are words the heart can’t say.” ~Unknown
Sometimes we may feel like crying because we are simply too overwhelmed. Crying can actually be good for you- it’s a way to release pent up emotions of anger, confusion, etc. Most of us will actually feel better after a good cry! But crying too much can become a problem -it may lead to feelings of despair and depression.

No, I don’t. Sounds like you should talk to your family doc & maybe talk to a counselor…if this is something that you are experiencing!

I have done reading and researched about depression. I talked to my doctor and she RULED OUT depression. It doesn’t happen all the time. Every once in a while, so I am thinking it just has to do with stress.

@ babygalll ~ if you don’t mind me asking, how old are you?

iriemuffin's avatar

hormones. Take evening primrose oil 2x daily.

@iriemuffin: What does that do?

iriemuffin's avatar

@babygall…. My doctor recommended as a natural med for PMS/female overactive hormone issues; ie, crying for no apparent reason.

I love this discussion just because I feel the same way. Sometimes I even feel I really don’t want to cry just that something is blocking my mind not allowing me to think wat I want to think and hence I feel that way. But what some of u said is really true. Even I suppress my difficulties and think it weren’t really happening until I realize I have to face it soon.
