lately i've been going through a lot of emotional stress [hardly more than average high school drama, finals, pressure, and family] and i really need to cry--you know, let it out and everything--because i know that i'll feel alot better afterwards. so, i've tried almost everything: thinking about everything bad thats been going on, watching sad movies... but even the Lion King, which always made me cry before, didn't even make me tear. i feel like i've lost the ability.
is this bad?
much loves,

i know what you mean, i have a list of sad songs saved on my computer. they always used to make me cry and i always felt better afterwards. But im not able to anymore. Not sure why either. you didnt say if you were on any meds or anything? hope you feel better soon, and dont let all the stress get to you down x

thanks Lilly. thats so sweet.
& as for your question, im not on any meds. 2 years ago, in 7th grade, i took Zoloft for my depression. but, long story: at camp that year i met [one of] my bestfriend and she made me feel so special & valued that my parents no longer felt the need to give me medication or let me see my therapist. so, they quit treatment altogether, and i was better until now. and now, my parents won't get me help when i feel like i need it most..
yeah. pretty much that.

are you on any type of meds? When I was on prozac I could not cry,felt no emotions whatsoever. I soon realized that it was not working for me after I went to my mother in law's funeral,whom I adored and could not shed a tear.
If you are not,then I think that once you do hit the "spot" you will find yourself in tears for hours....

Hi phobia,
I replied to your post in the pain forum, and was just wondering if in that post you were really referring to yourself and not your friend? Also it is often a symptom of depression to have difficulty with physically expressing your emotion( eg cry). It is called a flat affect. I really do hope you are able to find some help for your troubles, and that your parents take it seriously.

Best wishes,

hey kurt...yeah i recognized you
when you said 'the pain forum'... are you talking about the one where my friend has chronic nausea? thats my bestfriend, she has trouble staying at my house because she always ends up going home sick.
but, i think it's a definite possibility that i could have depression...ive had it before, a couple of years ago.
always feel free to email/contact me. if you need me, i'll be here. :)
my favorite thing in the world [besides huggs] is helping poeple.
love, hillbill
