Hi. I'm here again. I think I need to be.

I want to cry. It's sitting there right behind my eyes but tears won't come. Not sure how I'm avoiding it. I want to sit in a corner and sob uncontrollably.

Over the past month:

17 y/o daughter was raped
I broke up with my fiance
Today I got fired from my job

I can't cry.

Any feedback much appreciated.
I had a tortuous childhood with 2 alcoholic parents and my mother and older brother were sadistic, paranoid schizophrenics. I stopped having the ability to cry early in my childhood and have rarely cried through my life and I am 71. Just confirming here that I do have PTSD with codependency issues that have similar symptoms along with anxiety problems. I understand what you are talking about with not being able to cry.

That's horrible. Not crying for me equals survivalmode which in your case is more than understandable.

I am sorry this is happening in your life..

You are not alone...... The only time I consciously remember crying in my adult life is when we put Spooky (my cat) down.
Dad, grandparents, other family - nearly nothing, but the cat? Bawled my eyes out....

I know where you are coming from.......
