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.
