Crying Spells

Crying is normal in human culture, however in depression, it can become anything but normal.

Crying, in a general sense, is increased to uncontrollable degrees.

Some folk who have not had a history of crying may actually be diagnosed just by this overwhelming desire to weep. I know outside of a few funerals I probably would have never cried. I am human, but not very emotional and I can say that this symptom can become a habit like brushing your teeth it can be quite invasive upon the psyche.

Some people who have not cried since childhood can become regular criers.
