I've been crying for three days. About every 10 minutes. I now have the urge to cry but am producing very little tears. Please help.

Crying for three days: One of the common symptomns of depression is being over-emotional and anxiety (overreaction basicly)
You might be suffering from a depression which is probably caused by a lack of serotonin and that is why people are used to treat depression with anti-depressants. But there is one thing you must know about before thinking about taking meds.
Depression and anxiety can be both treated with talk therapy. So I suggest seeing a therapist pror taking any medications but you must consult a doctor first since I'm not a doctor and im only giving you suggestions.
Another suggestion I give to everyone, and I have a feeling that some people will get tired of hearing that, is physical activity (the body produces hormones that are essential for healthy mind-body during excersing) and healthy diet. Our body was designed to move and to eat bio to it is all things you can work on prior engaging a therapy with medication. Note that a medication therapy with anti-depressant means at least 6 months taking the medications and sometimes have really bad side effect and it can take several trials to find the right meds for you ...Read more

I lost hubbs 8 mos ago. I cry a lot now. I wondered why my tears feel so thick. Not like water.

I don’t cry after a loved one's / relative’s death? But my tears comes out naturally when I ‘m watching a sad scene in cinema / tv. What to do?

I don’t cry after a loved one's / relative’s death? But my tears comes out naturally when I ‘m watching a sad scene in cinema / tv. What to do?

The time: We realize a loved one is "gone" is often delayed. When loss hits us directly, we may be in shock hindering the release of our tears. Tv & movies makes us cry because we "feel" for the characters, we identify with their pain if the plot & acting r good enough 2 make us believe their drama. 4 u: it is ok to react the way u do. Tears will come 2 u eventually & naturally later. Sincere condolences. ...Read more

Where does the water in tears come from and can you become dehydrated from crying enough?

Tears are from eye: You'd have to cry a lot to really dehydrate if you're otherwise in good health. The eye's lacrimal system secretes tears to protect the eye. When we cry, there's an additional stimulus from the emotional centers in the brain that ramp it up. If you're not being held without access to beverages or stranded in the desert, you are likely fine if you cry. ...Read more
