Crying Spells and Depression

Posted on May 10, 2018

Living with depression can take a toll on our emotions and can cause frequent crying. Emotional ups and downs happen to everyone, but depression can make sadness more frequent or extreme. Crying can be difficult to explain to others and it can come on suddenly. Sometimes it helps to know you aren't alone.

On MyDepressionTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with depression, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Crying spells are one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about crying spells:

Has anyone ever felt numb after a crying spell?

Do you always have a cry and don't know why?

What does it mean to cry for no reason? Is there a way to stop it?

Here are some conversations about crying spells:

I started my meds about a week and a half ago. I still cry a lot but I'm getting better.

My day or night has been better today than the last 7 or so days. I have been really depressed and crying a lot but am doing better.

I feel emotional at times, crying, angry, and sensitive to any sort of criticism.

Can you relate?
