Weepy Day


I am having a weepy day today.  You name it — I have cried over it.  It started this morning after waking from a bad dream.  You know the kind — the kind that seems realer than reality.  The experts say crying is supposed to be good for you.  But I don’t like it.   I find it frightening and fear it leading to a mental meltdown.  From silent tears to sobbing to practically keening and wailing, I have a whole repertoire.  Did it do me any good?  My best guess is maybe.  I didn’t numb out today.  I did finally function and get washed and dressed.  I washed the kitchen floor, swept the stairs and started a load of laundry.  But, when Onyx sat on my lap and purred  I started crying again because he was being so sweet.   Thankfully no one is home (but the cats) to see this spectacle that I am making of myself today.

I feel a bit calmer now.  Not so raw.  Perhaps, the cup of tea helped. 🙂  The storm has finally passed. Have you had a weepy, sad day recently?  Did you find crying helped?  Please feel free to share your thoughts.

  1. Crying makes me mad. LOL I don’t know why. It just does. Do I feel better sometimes? I suppose that I do. In the end? I suppose that we do whatever we need to do to survive each day. You’ve had a lot going on and other things coming up. You having a weepy day doesn’t surprise me.

  2. Lots of times I find crying helps. But sometimes those weepy days get out of control and seem to last for days. That makes me anxious because then I wonder if that’s just how it’s going to be from now on: I’ll always be the crier. But usually it’s a flag for me that I’ve been taking on too much, that I need to slow down and pay more attention to the basics of self-care. Is it like that for you? Does it happen more when you are more stressed or too busy in your daily life?
