I have cried so many tears in my life through the dreadful years of depression and threats and suicide attempts. In the past 6 years since I was last in the psych hospital I haven't cried much at all. Tears are associated with such pain and anguish. I want to be able to cry particularly tears of joy. Today I was brought to tears by friends I email. It was wonderful to feel the sense of tears coming and then to let them happen. Tears of joy and also sad tears at the thought of the death of my beloved cat Sooty. Tears are such a blessing. Sad tears and happy tears. I read somewhere that happy tears are chemically different from sad tears. Don't know if it is true but it sounds good.
lots of love from susan in australia
