Crying all the time: There are no bad effects of crying. Crying is a way to express feelings and it can be part of the healing process.
Dr. Michael Blumenfield
Psychiatry 57 years experience
Sadness is the prob: Crying is obviously the result of the sadness. The important question why is there so much sadness? It may be related to problems, conflicts, loss, disappointments, relationships etc . It is also possible that there is an underlying mood disorder. What is needed here is a mental health evaluation. The solution will probably be some kind of psychotherapy possibly with medication
