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.
