Do you ever feel like you need to have a good cry?

I've been going through some things the past few months and sometimes I feel like I need to have a really good cry. Well, this feeling ALWAYS hits me when I'm at work. I have my own office so whenever the feeling hits I kind of tear up but never let it flow.

I wish the feeling would hit me when I'm home or even driving home from work. I feel like I really need to just release all of this stress/anxiety with a good cry but can't seem to do it when I'm not at work.
Yup. I'm having one of those days today.
Already looking forward to bedtime.
Hopefully, tomorrow will be better for both of us : )

Sometimes. If I do, I'll put on a sappy movie and get my cry out. We're talking really sappy. For example, the last movie that drew me to tears was 27 Dress.
Absolutely!! I usually get the feeling when I'm alone, or when I'm trying to fall asleep. If I'm alone I'll just let loose. If I have some trouble getting going, I think of truly horrifyingly bad things-- usually what ends up working is thinking of a loved one dying. I get the good cry out, and then I feel great, even if I look like a drowned rat.

I tend to reel it in when I'm trying to fall asleep, because I hate to make my husband think something is wrong. Usually, nothing is wrong, I just need the emotional release of a good cry. But it makes him hurt to see me hurt (or to see what he assumes is me hurting) and I don't like to do that to him if I can avoid it. Plus, crying while I'm laying down makes me really, really congested, which makes falling alseep a lot harder.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
Stolen.

I'm having one of those days for the last several days. My BFF called me from LA in meltdown mode, hysterical. I don't know what happened but she's on the verge of losing her business and her marriage. The last few days have been arranging flights over for her and her 5 year old daughter. I also had to scramble to get my guest bedroom set up, buy a bed, etc. Oh, did I mention they're staying for a month? She told me last night... "I thought of killing myself, but decided to come see you instead"

Between unexpected house guests, being "extremely* worried about my friend, demanding clients, tax season, and being very low on cash right now.... yeah.

we need a group cry!

Meryn, your friend is lucky to have a friend like you.

Yup, I'm having one of those days too, and am just really glad our office was closed today for the holiday. Nothing specific is going on - I think I'm just bumming for no reason. Oh, and also I'm PMSing (I'm due to get it on Friday) - and my one symptom that I always get is weepy.

aww, thank you xcptnl and Lisa. We've been friends since we were 7, so she's falls in the "family" range of just how many hoops of fire I'm willing jump through!

Are you really stressed at work? That might be contributing to the need to cry.

Today is also a bad day for me. I have to finish a 2,500 word paper by tomorrow and I have 644. It's going to be a long night. Hugs to all who are feeling down

Actually, work is going well for me, today is my 16 year anniversary. Business is slow but my work load has not decreased.

The stress/anxiety is related to things in my personal life. I guess maybe I think about them more when I'm at work?

Hugs to everyone.

Yup. It's pretty cathartic.

Lately I've read quite a few threads on other sites with mostly male posters, about being told not to cry. It's pretty sad
I sobbed over Yagotta's post. I don't know her, I didn't know her beloved pup, but it was just the outlet I needed.

yagotta, if you're reading this, thank you, I don't mean to trivialize your pain... but your post was a gift to me.
I also put in a sappy movie when I need to cry. P.S. I Love You will having me crying for at least a couple hours.

When I feel I must cry, I bite it back when I'm around people, of course, so it all builds up for when I can finally be alone in my room - it's harder here with roommates. When I am finally alone in my room, it's weird, but I silently act out a part in some heartwrenching scene I make up. I cry in character and for me.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
All the time since I lost my mom late August. I'm just absolutely lost. It hasn't gotten any easier either. I work in a psych hospital now, on the geriatric unit... keeps my very busy, it's the ride to and from work that gets hard...and bed time...

Oh yeah. Luckily it IS when I'm home. I just shut myself from folks, and just let it out...for however long I need to. It helps, even if the situation(s) prompting the need are still there.

Yes, I definitely need to cry sometimes! I hate doing it in front of other people, except my husband and maybe my sister. On Christmas, we were at the family dinner at my parents' house, and my kids were really stressing me out. It was the baby's bedtime, but he just cried and wouldn't fall asleep, and the two-year-old was getting into everything and having tantrums the whole evening. I just couldn't stand it, so I went into another room and started crying, but several people followed me in and saw me. I felt rotten about it for a few days, irrational as it may be. Ugh, just thinking about that evening now is starting to upset me again, so I'd better get my mind off it! But if I get upset around just my husband, he always makes me feel better.
