What Does It Mean To Cry For No Reason?

What Does It Mean To Cry For No Reason?

I find myself watching tv & my mind isn't really watching it & I will start crying uncontrollably for no reason. Is there a way to stop this crying so much when I don't even know why or what I'm crying about?

I'm sorry to hear that from a lot of you 🙁 I've been better with not crying. Went to psychiatrist we talked I didn't like what she said. She thinks I'm bi polar. I know what that means you get ups and downs and lots of other things. I'm not like that at all, we all cry at times, going to see her again few weeks. Got to tell her what's on my mind, I have a good idea I'm on the right medication. I think she wants to change it, I'm not doing it, I've tried so many different types of antidepressants, I know what works and what doesn't. I have nothing against people who have this my mother was and I think that's why she thinks I am. My PCP won't write me another script so I don't have much of a choice. However I found my other PCP who I went to for year's going to call there soon and see if he will. He's the one who started me on what I'm taking now, it's mainly used for sleep and MDD. Hang in there every one better days are ahead! And keep your self as busy as possible read color clean out cupboards etc.. wish you all the best.

Distraction. Put on some upbeat music, do puzzles, play with pets, do something that makes you focus on the activity not thoughts. Too much time to think, inactivity brings you down.

In my opinion that's what you're brain tries to tell you that's what you're depression tries to tell you. You will always have someone to talk to. No matter what. No matter what time it is what part of the year or where your at in the world. There's always someone willing to sit down and be there with you. Not fix you. But give you charity. But just be there with you. And if you feel like you don't yet. Than let me tell you. I'm one off those. I'm here for you if you ever need me.

I am new so I could be wrong and if I am I apologize I think I am writing the answer or something to the person that asked about watching a movie crying for no reason. If that is correct then this is what I have to say to what you asked. For one you are crying for a reason you may not know exactly what it is because it may be a thought or something whatever it has been went by so quick that you did not notice but there is a reason why you are crying there always is a reason why you are crying. Can you stop crying for the reason whatever that reason maybe the answer is yes and no this is just my personal opinions if anybody else disagrees or has something else I am down to listen and I apologize if I offend again this is just my personal opinion. Now the reason I say yes and no is because I personally think you need to figure out what it is that made you start crying it may be hard but you have to figure it out once you figure out what made you start crying work through that situation work through that problem work through whatever it is you may even need one last cry and cry and cry it good let it all out be with somebody if you have to somebody that understands what you are doing but let it out let it all out. Once that is done walk away from it like a letter written to no one burn it get rid of it you dealt with it you mourned it now walk away. You will not cry as much in my personal opinion which brings up the other part no because in my personal opinion even if you have dealt with it burnt it walked away from it not had to cry because of it in a long time there is still that chance it sneaks up and bites you in the rear just saying I am so sorry you deal with depression I do as well obviously and if I could I would take every single person's depression away from them I love you and I wish the best for you.
