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.
its a form of deep emotional release.
in the catholic church they call it the Gift of Tears From the Holy Spirit.
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.
Sad thing about that is here in Colorado, I have a Mother that does it and a friend and they are overglorified, underpaid, Merry Maids... Can't pay their bills...
In the past, I could be watching a tv show or movie & just start having tears run down my face. It didn't take much. I didn't know if it was menopause or depression. My medication was changed a few months ago & then the dosage was changed. I haven't been crying much at all.
