Can you make yourself cry (without inflicting physical pain)?

All I have to do is envision someone's eyes being red and watery and I start crying. Lol

I cry every time someone takes a red skittle from me...then I break their arm.

I cry quite often/easily, and when I do it is because of emotional reasons. I rarely cry because of physical pain.

Sure I can. I just need to think hard on very sad memories or on someone who has died. The dead person doesn't even have to be real! I can make someone up in my head and convince myself that they were real and important to me.

Ha! Little Chucky boy... He still whimpers when he thinks about how used to make him give me his lunch money. He checks under his bed for me when he goes to sleep. He tried to extend the olive branch once and I whipped his hiney with it!

I haven't cried when I'm supposed to cry in the longest time, even though I've tried to force it out. I've cried far more at trivial and at often random times.

I just think about when my ex girl friend says she could have the police come and arrest me. She says all she would need to do is cry. After seeing this pole, I should had been worried.

If I think about how mitt Romney lost, I can cry myself to sleep.

Yes, it's definitely hormone related. Having a child made me start crying over just about anything emotional. I didn't do that before.

No, but it would probably be good for sinus pressure. Physical pain doesn't make me cry anyway. It makes me noisy.

Anyone can make themselves cry at will if they know how. I learned the trick years ago watching the old Mike Douglas talk show. You have to stop blinking & swallowing for about a minute and the tears will start by themselves. Takes a little practice but it works.

Only when I'm PMS-ing.

Now that I think about it, I can't remember the last time I cried from physical pain. Whenever I cry, it's always related to my emotions.

if I'm depressed, (which is a lot) all I have to do is turn on the imagination and think of something depressing. .and BOOM!

Yes, I can. If I get an eyelash in my eye and can't get it out, I read a scene from "Survivor in Death" by JD Robb. About an entire family killed except for a 9 year old girl. She asks to be taken to say goodby (in morgue). Makes me cry every time.

No & can hardly stop myself when tears are triggered by something. If I'm crying, it's true emotion.

Yes, after my sister in law was killed by a hit n run driver, I just have to think of her - I guess that is physical pain I should have answer no.

Sleep depravation and depression make that really simple. I could think about anything right now and start crying.

Depends on how late it is and how recently I've watched The Reichenbach Fall.

Yeah, it helped a lot in my Chinese school. I was acting up a bit, and my young teacher lectured me, and I teared up. Made her feel really bad about it.

I can cry on command. It was really useful when I used to act.

I can cry on command. I don't have to think sad thoughts or poke a finger in my eye. Funny thing is I'm not a crier. I haven't cried in years till the other day when someone wanted to see if I could really cry on command.

Oh me too! Turns my stomach they are so gruesome ! If I watched them I would literally be traumatized & worry about those poor animals for *days*. So I just change the channel or mute sound & read until hubby says they are done!

I can make my eyes tear up, but not quite cry. I think that might be more of a physiological thing, but I'm not sure. I don't remember the last time I really cried (a few years ago) but my eyes still water sometimes. Long story short: kind of.
