I am feeling like a terrible person.
My daughter had a baby die. My mother in law just died. I was not able to cry at all. Not one tear. I feel bad for them, but I just can not cry in front of people, like at a funeral.
I do cry if I feel sorry for myself.

Glad you are here. But what terrible circumstances. I am so sorry for your losses.

As for the crying....it will come. When my 1st hubby years ago had a 3 wheeler wreck it took 3 days before I shed a tear.

We all deal w/ pain in our own way and when the time is right you will cry and you will grieve.

Go ahead and vent here if you would like. We are an understanding bunch.

It's the same with me.

When I went to my father's funeral a couple weeks ago I didn't cry in public. I felt like everyone was staring at me, waiting for me to do so.

People who I didn't even know were all swollen-eyed and needed tissues.

I actually laughed when I first found out that he had died. I didn't laugh because I thought it was funny...

I honestly think laughing is my way of crying. I laughed out loud once (and almost couldn't stop) when I almost got into a car wreck... When I hurt myself I laugh too...

I know it also doesn't help that when I think I 'should' be crying, and I am unable to, that I start to talk bad to myself, or call myself names... (In my head): "Damn You Amanda." "Don't be such a stoic." "Have a heart." Or "I am such a frigid bitch."

Some 'pep' talk huh? LOL

Sorry that this didn't contain any advice or words of wisdom... I just wanted to tell you that I kinda know where you're coming from. Not that it helps.

Hey I have dealt with what your dealing with right now. When my dad died 10 years ago I didnt cry at all. I guess cuzz i was so young but i still knew what was going on. Here soon you will have a break down and you wont be able to stop crying till you fall asleep. Well that is what happen to me. Im sorry for all you loses. If you need someone to talk to you can talk to me.
