One of my many side effects from my medications is that I have not been able to cry in years. It is like my tears well up and then nothing .... well all that changed yesterday. I cried. It wasnt full on bawling but the tears flowed and it felt good to be able to see and feel my own emotions. Does anyone else find it hard to cry due to mood stabilizers? My mental health nurse has said she has never come across it before.
@greenpea I have hear a lot of people say they can’t cry on mood stabilisers, and it is upsetting. Partly crying is a release, so if it’s not being able to be used, where do you release what crying would?
