    Well a very fucked up anniversary is approaching.. I wonder if these weird bouts of crying precede anniversaries of emotionally traumatic events?

    The last 3-4 months would certainly be anniversaries of some pretty grim times.

    I was really depressed.. I don't think it's so bad these days. That's one of the weird things about it is that like today, I was not sad or upset.
    I was in a decent mood.
    I would say It's been happening since I have been feeling "better"
    Yeah I've def had time's where i've become less depressed and had crying spells, like i was too depressed to cry before and than i'm not but i'm still depressed.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    So perhaps you've been repressing something, as others have said... or your mind just needs some way to emote, since emotions are generally healthy (at least I've been told they are)...
    Considering my emotionally erratic and intense behavior at times in the last year or so makes me wonder what I would have been like if I wasn't repressing stuff then..

    no real answers for you, but do have an idea. for the past, as much as you can remember, and if it happens again, log when it happened, what you were doing before that day, how you were feeling, what song/s it was, how you felt afterwards, any major thoughts, and any "oddities" - anything kind of abnormal, really vivid dreams or being sick or whatever - in the recent time period. my suspicion would be that there is a pattern that you will be able to find somewhere in all of that, that can perhaps point you in a helpful direction. personally i tend to get hyperemotional outbursts, and i used to not understand them at all. now i can usually isolate a few major precipitating factors, those generally being physical sickness/injury/hormones, lack of sleep, and the end of a period of intense activity. can't really stop them, but at least can prepare myself and temper them to a certain extent.

    Hmm yeah.. I didn't really cry a lot when I was in the thick of things.. I wonder if I am finally feeling sad, just honest sadness over everything??

    Listening to music sometimes touches me emotionally and unlocks feelings I wasn't previously aware of. Perhaps particular songs have a combination of melody and lyrics that bypass your conscious thought processes and touch feelings that you weren't aware of? Also, when I am depressed it is difficult for me to access my feelings. They only resurface when I'm in a more up mood. So, the scenario could be that because you are feeling better moodwise, underlying unexpressed emotions have become accessible to you through the pathway of music.

    I'm just a cryer, really.

    You know, arclight... I'm not sure if you are male or female.
    u know....funny that u ask....But a girl once told arclight that he was a lesbian inside a dude's body :P

    It had/has a very specific weight actually.. I had refused to mourn for my EX.. Fighting a losing battle was killing me inside and out.. Now I allow myself to mourn and I feel much better.. The crying has stopped. The anger is fading and I am accepting my fate.
    It's all good
