. @aliali – You seem to be doing a lot of soul searching and that's terrific, however some questions just can't be answered. I think that one of the reasons that depression hurts so much is that we don't cry. When I was very depressed I couldn't cry. I actually was afraid to cry- I didn't know if I would ever stop. What do you think, is it better to cry or not?

Regarding crying. I personally find that not crying is my way of holding feelings in that are too painful to let out. If I do allow myself to cry I always feel a release and in some ways feel better. I don't necessarily feel good..just less awful. This happened recently. Oh…also, for me, if I hold it in too long I start snapping at other people!
