Does anyone fall asleep when they feel like crying?

    For me lately I have been able to cry easily but when I'm in a place I want to prevent it, for example in the car with my Dad or in class at school, I just fall asleep very easily and quickly. Its almost as if I can't even keep myself awake while feeling like crying.

    I was just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience.

    Hi serena, this sounds as though it's your body's prevention mechanism, that occurs when sleep is more acceptable than crying. I haven't experienced this myself, but crying does tire me out, so perhaps the emotions are too much so your body automatically resorts to sleep. (I hope that makes sense; I'm exhausted and can't think properly!)

    Next time you feel like crying, but don't want to, i.e. with your Dad, etc, but don't want to sleep either, try sucking a sweet. You can't cry with a sweet in your mouth. Strange, but true.

    Thanks for answering guys I was afraid it was one of those questions that never gets answered :/ That does makes sense though that is exactly what it feels like, as if my body shuts down.

    I have before, but when I cry or want to, I normally have too much on my mind. for me, it's just that feeling that down tires me out.
