How often do you cry?

The last time I recall crying was in the weeks following my grandmother's death about six years ago. We were very close.

Stuff like getting a lump in your throat watching a movie doesn't count. Bawling your eyes out over a movie (or anything) does. Sad tears, glad tears, quiet sobbing, whatever.

How often do you cry, ladies and gentlemen of TBBS?

I cry all the time. Seriously, I'm a basket case. It's even worse when I don't get enough sleep.

Re: How often do you cry?

I aim for once or twice a month. It's cathartic. I have stand-by books, movies, songs, and poems that I know will move me to tears if I need them.

Re: How often do you cry?

As often as I need to. Depends on how things are going. As a child, I used to cry so much that my parents took me to a psychiatrist. Apparently whatever she did worked, as they stopped taking me after a few months. Still, I used to cry pretty much every time I would get upset, even as an adult. Lately (over the last 2 years or so), I've generally become more angry than sad when I'm upset, so I don't cry as much. Having said that, I cried a little bit this morning.

Re: How often do you cry?

Many movies, some TV shows have gotten me close to bawlly

In spite of all the stuff of this year, not much. Tear up, but no cry session. Will let you know if the holidays bring it on.

Re: How often do you cry?

I'm not much of a crier. It's sort of a point of personal pride with me, which is stupid, but we're all stupid sometimes. I cry if I'm really indignant/angry, or if I'm moderately physically hurt (i.e. slamming my finger in a car door might make me cry, but labor pains won't). I do not typically cry at movies or over sentimental things, much to the consternation of my husband, who totally does.

ETA -- I'm so bad about this I sometimes MAKE myself cry at events I'm supposed to cry at (like funerals). It doesn't come naturally to me, and I'm not sure why.

Around once a month I'll go into a small cry.

Re: How often do you cry?

Not often. 2-3 times a year, I'd guess, and only 1-2 of those progresses beyond "welling-up" into actual tears and even then, it doesn't last longer than a minute or two. It takes a pretty well-wrought TV show or movie to pull me in enough to get me emotionally engaged enough to cry. I don't think I've ever cried because of literature, art, poetry or music though I've had other emotional responses to them all.

That frequency is actually a bit more often than I used to - I've had some times in my life where I don't think I cried at all for years at a time.

I went a bit mental and tried to kill myself. It's a long story. Suffice it to say, I haven't cried since.

Re: How often do you cry?

If depression really gets to me I give out a good sobbing. Some movies/books/TV/songs etc make me get a little weepy.
