Crying for Your Health?

I find myself crying a lot. It's not an unusual response for me when I'm sad or even angry, so I try to let myself be okay with it. But I can't say I find it very healing or cathartic or anything. I don't feel better after I've cried. It just is.

I do have to say that the one time I get irritated with the tears in this time of grieving is their timing especially of when I've just gone to bed. That's because I have a Cpap mask on at that time, and with the tears and runny nose inside it — it just gets very complicated! I hate it.

Thanks for adding your thoughts, @trider7140. I think you might find this short video from Dr. Amit Sood about how tears are healing to our body and our spirits. Just scroll down to the video titled, Can Crying Be a Good Thing?

Will, you let me know what you think after viewing the video?
