Hi,

I wonder if people here cry each day because of Dp/DR. Because I tend to cry almost each day because of that. When I recall my past year, I can cry many hours, and I just go in front of the hospital where I got my delivery, or my boyfriend talk to me about my delivery, and I cry. I can't help myself. When I don't cry I feel a complet robot without emotions. When people are good for me, and reassuring, or saying things like I will recover, I cry.

I just don't know if I am the only one. Is it a sign of depression? PSSD? just because of DP/DR?

i would love to be able to cry, but all i can muster is a stifling sadness which can't seem to form it's way into tears. i don't know what the deal is with that...it's like i can't externalize my emotions or something.

I cry only very rarely. Part of that is pre-conditioning from society - I'm a guy and am not supposed to cry. On the other hand........every now and then I will cry for what at the time seems no apparent reason. Usually when I am alone. Usually when driving actually. I remember it happened one evening last week on the way home from work. And I was SOBBING. Big time cry. Wonder what the people driving around me thought. Big boy in a old beater LandCruiser bawling his eyes out....

Firstly I want to say how it saddens me to know so many of us are in deep pain.
When I first got dp I cried every day,so much that my eyes would be red and swollen.I could hardly see at all.
Lately I'm having a major relapse,so there have been a good deal more tears than usual.I cry out of frustration,despair,hoplessness.

Crying can be a sign of depression.Personally I find living with chronic dp extremely depressing.

To those who cry each day I hope soon the tears will turn to laughter and for those who feel the need to cry I hope soon the flood gates will open up.

All the best,cheers Shelly

I can't cry. I want to so bad sometimes because of all the anguish and fright and pain, but I can't. I have no emotion for that anymore, I guess.

Tonight I cry alligator tears for you, I will take away all your fear.
The more you need me, the more you're gone. Just know that I'm here.


Painfully,

Young Grant (with an "R") - try.
Different things work for different people. But it's in you. You can do it. Sometimes just thinking of a sad situation can do it for me. Other times, like I say, it just comes out of the blue. Maybe the one thing that works most often for me is to think of how long I have been this way. What I have missed because of this. What the people closest to me have missed because I am this way.

Crying can be many things, including a release. So much frustration, so much fear, so much.......anger. A good cry can help you let go of some of that.
I hope you can find a way to cry.

Yes. I cry a few times a week. It's the only thing that brings my anxiety to a level at which I can function at. I think in some ways storing up emotion inside aggravates DP and causes us to turn further inward.

Yes, sc, I will try. And I wanted to mention right now how much your avatar resembles you- in a good way... that's what I now associate with you. A sheepish grin, but a powerful and all-knowing presence. It's pretty funny, actually. But yes, I will try.

I think I can, I think I can...

I picked that avatar because he reminds me of what I wish I was: soft, friendly, not particularly bright.........and not DP.
