    I usually know what trigged the crying episode. Although once I start crying, then I'll think of numerous other sad things which makes me cry even more. Once I start crying it can be hard to stop. Luckily, I rarely have crying episodes, just a few times a year.

    I don't cry randomly. Like a previous poster, movie scenes get me, but it's usually scenes of strong joy, for instance Shadow coming home in Homeward Bound always got me when I was little, and the scene in Up when Carl looks through the Adventure Book is the only thing in that movie that gets me to well up.

    The documentary 'Dear Zachary' made me cry harder than I have in a while.

    I also had a very delayed reaction when my grandpa died. He lives 6 hours away in Kansas, which is where the funeral was, and it wasn't til I was back home, driving by myself the day after the funeral listening to some random (not sad) song that I cried.
    Does he want a pillow for his head?

    I haven't cried in almost a decade and I really want to but it's hard

    I'm working on it though, I can't wait till I shed some tears it'll be like Pakistan

    Not a joke I honestly can't be bothered to think of a better metaphor


    But if my doctor was googling my medication, I would not be happy or sad, I'd be very fucking angry

    I try not to get angry at things like that, because there are too many instances where I could get really pissed off because my life is such a joke, but it's just better to laugh...at least you find it funny, I guess.

    A decade??!! That's pretty full on man.

    To the OP: no, I always know what I'm feeling and what I'm feeling. Some of the more subtle 'time bomb' emotions may slip under the radar, but they become apparent soon enough.

    I've done this. But then, I have a hormonal imbalance, and I can go kinda crazy when I'm switching medications or I don't have access to them for whatever reason. At the least, I can have some pretty steep mood swings, which in the past has included crying without reason. I've actually done that crying while laughing thing. Let me tell you, that one really freaks people out.

    I have very rarely cried for no reason. Well not NO reason. I was upset but I didn't have a reason to be upset, so indirectly it's no reason.

    As for normal crying, I don't slack off on that. It's always been something I do when I am very sad (except rare times where I am incapable and that is worse) and I find it relieving so I don't stifle it unless I'm in public. This year (I had depression for a while) I have cried... I dunno, a lot... probably at least 20 times.
