Crying all the time at random things.

I've had depression and anxiety on and off for about 7 years now.

I've always been a bit of a cryer but since my mum died last year I cry at everything.

Adverts, soaps, news stories, good news, bad news, gentle music, powerful speeches, rousing anthems, group singing, children saying sweet things. You name it I bawl at it.

I feel pretty good these days. Exercise has really helped my depression and day to day I feel great.

So why the fuck do I cry so much at random stuff?

I've just cried at Snog, Marry, Avoid US. for fucks sake hmm

Anyone else get like this? And what can I do to stop it?

Yes, I do this. I'm worse at happy things. I've just started beta blockers for anxiety and an interested as to whether it will stop this or not.

Think I'm not as well as I made out.

Had to phone in sick from work tonight due to having a panic attack in the shower. No idea where it came from, just overtook me and I stood shivering in the bathroom trying to breathe properly.

Fucks sake, I thought I was dealing with things better now, I haven't felt like this in ages.

Have you been to your GP? Mine was excellent and referred me for counselling and prescribed beta blockers, which are really helping.

Haven't started counselling yet.

I am like this. I cry at everything too - a choir singing, child abuse, my son stroking a cat, brexit, the school parade, a student leaving.
It's almost embarrassing.

I've been crying all nigh too today
