I cry very rarely but when I'm really stressed or upset I'll cry uncontrollably. When I do I cry quite a lot with little control, which can be embarrassing when in public.

In fact when I was reading this forum last week and read all the things that I always thought was just me but everybody on here does as well, I welled up a couple of times as I realised I had completely mis-understood the dyspraxia. It was strange because it was a huge relief to understand what has been going on in my head for years, but it made me very emotional.

But a lot of the time I feel really upset and want to cry but can't. Does anybody else get that? :?

I get upset very easily and for little things sometimes of the time I don't even know why. I cry at everything from exam results to films.

I'm alot like this, when was younger f my parents just said "Don't do that Robyn" I would cry uncontrollably. I hated getting stuff wrong.

These days it is not that bad, although I still cry when I'm anxious or for other reasons. Like my sister opened my mini cheddar packet before I wanted them opened so I started crying and shouting at her until she brought me a knew packet.

(I know that sounds really really immature and childish but at the time I just couldn't control how much I was crying and that my mini cheddars were opened early...it really stressed me out. )

I also bottle up my feelings, but they usually come out eventually, and I cry in my room

I know I tend to cry a LOT! And though its usually over stupid things, I had a near melt-down on Friday when my college messed up my registration so I missed out on the ONE class that I really wanted to do :(

Yeah I am completely the same. At primary school it was the worst, now I am like you I don't burst into tears but just stare somewhere and take myself away from the world.

These days though I can control myself a lot more now although on occasions I have had real trouble because my anxiety levels just are get so high.

I am like that now...its causing social problems.

I ended up crying in the pub on Thursday night as I was so stressed about work. It gets very embarrassing sometimes because you don't always want people to know when you are upset but, even after I had cleaned my face and the actual tears had stopped, a colleague came in from outside and noticed and then put her arm around me and kept saying it was OK which attracted my managers attention and he then asked me twice what the matter was. I just told him it was something to do with work but, apparently when I left the room to use the bathroom, he asked one of my closest friends at work why I was upset and she told him in more detail. That's why I don't always like crying so easily.

I cry really easily. Sometimes it is even for no good reason or as a result of being over exhausted. The worst thing is if I cry at school as it draws a lot of attention to you particularly during exam season. Luckily my friends are really good at keeping everybody away and cheering me up.

Its strange i thought that was just me! I tend to cry when a teacher(mainly maths) points out that i'm doing the incorrect answer or she notices i'm struggling! I also tend to want to cry under stressfull situations or if nervous.

I tend to cry a lot when im frustrated about somthing or if im stressed out, and since iv just started uni its been really hard because im getting frustated with myself and the uni since they wont sort out the right support for me, i brst out in tears in front of a lecturer the other day and i felt so stupid which made me cry even more, but she was really understanding about Dysparxia since she knew what it was and has offered me support whenever i need it :)

I am sorry that you felt embarrassed, Gengens94, but I'm glad that through this, you have found a lecturer who will give you some support.
