I was just asking myself last night why do I cry so much. I figured it out though for me,I think. I'm very sensitive to others and what they are going through. I cry when I see an elderly person by themselves in church, I cry when I see other people cry either on TV or in person or when I think that person is hurting and alone. I worked with someone who cried once in 10 years and I said I cried on the way to work this morning listening to someone on the radio. I told the person I cry all the time and he said he admired me for it. He wished he could do it more. This was a tough guy too. I cry when people tell me sad stories because I feel for them and their situation. I tell them please don't tell me this, I'll start to cry but they tell me anyway and I cry. That's mainly why I cry. It started in my early teens attending funerals and seeing family members sad. I also cried watching Shirley Temple movies when I was a kid. Those were the worst back then for me. Sometimes it makes things difficult because the tears just come. It gets embarrassing and I usually say I feel so bad for that person. Have never tried medication; but am thinking about it. I'll start crying in a room full of people and I'll be the only one tearing up during a show or movie. I think maybe no one feels bad for the person like I do. I just don't know. Like the above response maybe I have a disorder and don't know it.
