I too have been told that I sometimes "act like a guy" (by a few ex-boyfriends)

but........... I do cry in fact I cry a LOT! lol Once that pressure starts to build inside, I have no choice....... it just comes out. There is no way that I can stop it and I am actually glad. I am glad because for me........ the pain is so deep that if I were to stuff it inside and not cry, I think that it would literally kill me.

I guess I should add, I don't cry about AH or my marriage.

I am concerned for his health and have some compassion for his situation. I regret the path my marriage followed to where we are just roommates who happen to share grown children and who, for the most part, get along now that I focus on my recovery and not his.

But the bitter tears were cried years ago and I don't cry about it any more.

(I don't think I'll go see that new Meryl Streep movie about wanting a real marriage.)

Yep - I cry whenever the need strikes for whatever reasons. If I don't I can literally feel the pressure mounting inside of me.

In addition to all of the above reasons, I cry ~every time~ the National Anthem is played before a ball game or when an entire arena of people stop during an event to acknowledge members of our military that are in attendance.

You may find this to be helpful. This is from an AA speaker named Scott L. He explains here how he learned to cry again. Hope it helps.

Do I What...!!

yes, I think of crying as a release of tension and pent up anger and emotion. I cry all the time with my therapist - and also when I'm hormonal.
My granny had a saying years ago..." your kidneys must be very near your eyes " !!!

When AH left last year I cried most often either in the shower or in my office. I somehow managed to hide it from co-workers.

I don't cry a lot I think but I don't really not cry either. Movies can easily bring it out and I think it can be a good release even if I'm not crying for the reason I "ought to be."

I've also found that I cry at my preschoolers milestones and will tear up when my DH completes a 5K (?) I guess maybe I cry easily...
