PostSubject: Crying   Sun Oct 02, 2016 1:12 am

Do you ever feel the need to have a good cry?  I googled it and there are apparent benefits.  I ‘m trying to understand why I was crying two nights before my release from the clinic.  I was talking with the Doctor with the nurse present and I just began to cry.  The Nurse, wiping the tears from my eyes said, “Don’t worry, “Herr March”, everything will be okay.  I heard the Doctor say, “I believe he has other issues.”
It so happened that there were other issues that may have triggered the need to cry.  My brother was in the hospital and it wasn’t clear if he would be coming home.  I was concerned about how I could help my wife with her illness since I was so weak and feeling helpless.  I don’t know what triggered the crying, but it did provide a form of release. 
Men in general suppress crying as it is considered by some as socially unacceptable.  
What are your thoughts?

I am sorry you were crying.   I hope and pray you feel stronger soon.  Eat plenty and sleep lots.  Laugh every day.  Watch Doc Martin.

                   It's human to cry, it's bull when a father tells a son or someone else says " Men don't
cry !." Bull !  I'm emotional , I cry telling a story or I see an animal or child hurt...It's good to cry
wether it's happy or sad....

                                                         Cheers.......Joe.. Very Happy

Crying is a personal and cultural thing also gender and hormone related.  As we age, however, most people become more sensitive and cry more quickly than in their younger life.  I have always been a cryer, even in cartoons, as i have a big imagination.  However, sometimes the simplest thing these days will set loose the water works.  I know it's part of the aging process.  

Depression is also a component of older age for many as health becomes an issue and takes down our resistance when it comes to coping wtih trauma and grief.  To fight depression it is critical that we have a proper diet and lots of healthy air and exercise and activities and people who help us find our bliss.

A good cry is a positive release when it is followed with moving the mind in a positive direction.  Continuous crying is often a sign of depression and sometimes needs medicine and/or counseling to get at the root cause.

Critical surgeries and known to bring on depression in some people and it is important to get the proper counseling and diet - and help in the home to cope with daily dasks that health issues may make difficult.

I give the inspirational reading at church each Sunday.  Sometimes I am so touched by the reading that tears flow down my cheeks.  Sometimes I see a video on Facebook and burst into tears. 

After my long talk about crying - Joe is right.  Men and women should be free to dry when they are so moved.  It can be a healthy release.  It represents our human heart.

Crying is normal when you are faced with difficult situations.  You  have had very serious health issues, Abe, as well as your wife.  Try to lift your spirts by reading something funny.

You have had heavy surgery and will need time to recover., both physically and emotionally

Give yourself plenty of time.
Rest alot.

Just watched America win the Ryder Cup; Bubba Watson was sobbing like a baby. Tears of sadness, tears of joy, they all have their place.
