hi sandybob

i wish i could cry - i really find it difficult to shed tears and usually when I do I am handed a hankie and I dry them up quickly. I have bottled up years worth and would like to swap with you for a wee while to shed some.

take care

Anne

I always cry at the RSPCA advert. I cried this morning because I was talking to a friend on the phone and I'd asked to run something past him and he began to tell me that he thought the way I handled being bipolar was great and that he had confidence I would always do the right thing. You really know you're loved sometimes - and now I'm filling up again because he made me feel special. Everyone have a hug :hug:

about 5 years ago i went thru a period of about a month when i couldnt stop crying and would cry at anything from cartoons to music, but since ive been on meds with a mood stabilizer i dont seem to have cried in ages.

I do think ilike Fedup says its important to cry. As long as its not ruining your daily life:cry::grouphug:

One thing will always make me cry no matter how well I am and that is the movie Carousel. I start crying when Billy Bigelow is stabbed to death and by the time they sing You'll Never Walk Alone at the end I have gone through a box of tissues and have two great wads of them stuck to my cheeks because it's easier than pulling single tissue out of the box. I've even got the singalong version. That alone is so pitiful it makes you want to cry. :(
