    Default A question for them Thinkn' types...

    Or anyone in general (I just want to see if any other T's have been through this)

    Do you ever have random bouts of crying, but have no idea what it's about? Like, if someone comes up and asks you why you're crying, you will tell the truth saying, 'I have no idea'?


    It happened to me today. I was at the doc's office (who was such a joke) and he Googled my prescription or something, and I was trying really hard not to laugh, so I cried instead.

    Hahaha, I have that. I don't cry when I'm supposed to, and then I'll see random things that have no emotional value at all, and I'll just start sobbing. This hasn't happened so much as of late, but when it does, I feel so ridiculous.
    I blame it on hormones.

    Repressed emotions have a way of manifesting themselves at the most odd and inopportune times.

    I would suspect that if you always try to rationalize something as abstract as feelings and discount them. Then they just find a way in through the backdoor instead.
    You can run.. but they always find you eventually.

    Lol, I didn't even know I was repressing an emotion. I just wanted to laugh, but it didn't come out as a laugh. Although I've been through that repressing emotions thing before, I'd just stare at a lamp or something and start bawling...maybe because it made me think of something bad, that wasn't the case today...it was just weird lol.

    I do this randomly for one week every month....

    Other than that, it only happens if I'm under extreme stress and someone really gets under my skin. I will eventually snap and break down in tears... Mostly out of frustration.

    You had such tears of joy that your Dr started googling your prescription.

    I cried a couple of times during an extreme emotional low point after I a) got divorced and b) lost my job within the span of 2 months. Aside from that, I haven't cried more than 5 times since I was a kid.

    I've been through that while I was dealing with depression.

    Now that it is gone for good, those unexplained tears left with it.

    I'm not saying that you may be suffering from it. It was my personal experience.

    Certain scenes in movies trigger tears. Real life, not so much. Makes me wonder if there's an element of safety to release emotions through something with no investment.

    I lol'd at that.

    Now as far as the question in the OP goes, yes, sometimes. I haven't really cried over anything besides my last breakup since I was a little kid. With me i've noticed it takes a bit of time before things actually sink in and then an even longer amount of time before I get over them. Also, when i'm alone in my head (i.e. not talking to anybody or focused on anything) my thoughts tend to wander off into this huge negative space where all I can think about is how terrible everything is, and that's when i'm most likely to break down in tears over everything going on in my life.

    Mostly,though, my bouts of crying aren't really random, but out of a sense of helplessness; for me there's nothing worse than being in a situation I can't resolve, and at that point it's not an issue of knowing what the thing that's actually bothering me is, but why i'm allowing the issue to get to me so much.
