In brief: Been unable to cry?

Depression may have a variety of symptoms which vary for a lot of reasons and among people.
It is possible for a person to be so severely depressed that he is unable to express feelings or emotions, bodily movement is minimal, and spontaneous speech is absent. Energy depletion is severe; thus, vegetative symptoms appear. If you have been unable to cry in a this way, your depression seems better.
