Did you ever just need to have a good cry?
I think I just need to get in the shower, run some nice hot water and have a good cry! The least little thing will set me off, and I get all teary, and I have to fight it back because I'm not where I can just let go. The last two mornings on the way to work, I've had to choke it back, and I think right now, I could really get into a bad ugly-cry if I had half a chance. I think if I can go ahead and indulge it, I'll feel better. Just wondered if everyone else feels this way every now and then?

About nine months after my dad died, I was having a very difficult time. I took his death very hard because we were apart for many, many years due to my parents being divorced when I was young. My mom had pretty much brainwashed me into thinking he had been an ogre, but we had reconciled after I had my son. We had about five years to get to know one another again...long-distance...

One day I went through my closet looking for something and came across my baby album. I sat and cried and cried as I turned those pages. Kids weren't home (I was a SAHM), and so I had the whole day.

I felt so much better afterward. This was the turning point for me in my grieving process.

So, go ahead and pick a part of the day to try to figure out what's going on inside your head. You'll feel like a weight's been lifted.

All the time. Sometimes everything just gets to be too much. Crying is like purging. Having a good cry almost always makes me feel better. It doesn't solve the issues, but it does make you feel better.

*hugs*

Thanks guys!! Poor hubby! He thinks there has to be a reason!! Bless his heart - he always wants to do whatever he can to make it stop. That's why I have to resort to the shower cry....so it can be a good long one...something about washing all the tears down the drain, I guess...

Thanks...

AuburnChick:

I was close to both my parents and had lost them both by the time I turned 38. I so totally felt like an orphan.

Riss:

You are so right about not solving anything, but there's something to be said about the purge!!

I agree!! Let those tears flow honey. I don't cry as often as I should cause I get horrible headaches/migraines when I do that.....kinda sucks, but sometimes I just have to cry and deal with the pain later.

I'm sorry you're sad. I hope you feel better soon.

I think everyone feels that way sometimes. life just builds up and even if there isn't a "good" reason right that minute, a good cry can work wonders. you are definitely not alone. hang in there...

I do it all the time. I let things build up and build up until I just, well, lose it. I cry and feel sorry for myself and sulk. But in the morning I'm so much better. I call it crash and rebuild. Weird I know
