    I cried today

    Not gonna go into detail, but first time I had a proper sob in ages.

    When was the last time you cried?

    * Can add details if comfortable.

    When burying the kids cat. Fkn thing unused to annoy the hell out of me but was pretty cool as far as cats go and seeing them so devastated was rough.

    About six weeks ago I had a good boohoo while on the telephone with my brother. My mother’s dementia condition was/is in a downturn, I had developed some stress related health problems, then my brother tells me his husband has cancer. With that news, the pressure blew. BAWAHHH.

    I cried at the end of Brokeback Mountain in 2005. But I had had a whole bottle of red wine so that did not count.

    But then I was taken by surprise when I teared up again at the conclusion earlier this year when I rewatched it again for the first time since it came out, and I had only had half a bottle of sparkling white this time (plus I had seen it before and so had fair warning) so that would have defo counted.

    Except that I managed to balance the tear on my lower eyelid and tipped my head back and blinked a few times until it dried up.

    Brokeback Mountain? Taken by surprise? Tears?

    Sounds like that's not all you've been taken by.

    the only real question to ask when watching that movie is: did you have a hard on?

    I think every man has, at least the real ones

    Is that the movie about predatory cheerleaders gagging for a bit of paunchy old bloke action ?

    ...hate to say it, but this thread may descend into a GF/Wally-type wallow...TD, as currently populated, cannot handle much beyond cynicism, insult, gross trolling and embarrassment at exposing unmanly behavior (i.e., having a good weep)...however, like my wish for Nov 3rd, there's always hope for change: but we may all be shedding tears if posters don't exhibit a bit more self-control...

    You seem to rack up an awful lot of posts on these 'GF/Wally-type wallows'.

    I think the only time it's okay for blokes to cry is when a sports star retires or dies. And then it's just a solitary tear squinted out, and quickly brushed away.

    Hearing about medical test results . . . (not mine, but I'd trade my good health for hers)

    Some time back, listening to Elgar's Enigma Variations. When Nimrod started I welled up.
    This was played at my father's funeral and the connection must still be there in the deep subconscious.

    I best come clean.

    I came across a video of the kids that I had totally forgotten about last night.

    It was a sob filled with joy (and yes, I had a few beers inside of me.)

    Nothing too remarkable and no idea why I made a thread about it, but always good to share experiences.
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.

    About 25 years ago for me. Had very recently broken up after a long relationship with the girl I thought I'd be spending the rest of my life with, and receiving news of a death in the family pushed me over an emotional boundary I hadn't experienced since being about 12 years old.

    Last month I had 3 funerals in 1 week. That is, 3 shower ceremonies, 3 prayer ceremonies and and 3 cremations. Man, I was all prayer, monk, dead body and templed out.

    I always get roped into carrying the coffin but I normally bail out before they open it. This one, a dear old friend, I was asked to stay nearby while opened then help lift it into place for the furnace and push it all the way in. I welled up pretty good as soon as I got back down the steps.

    That's bout as close as it gets to crying for me these days.
    Lang may yer lum reek...

    A few years ago on hearing his story when I found the father that had left us when I was 5, but I was 4 years too late. he'd died 4 years earlier and the whole tale as told me by the woman who'd been his partner for the previous 20 years was tragic including that of his parents, my grandparents, as he was an only son and we their only grandchildren. A quite tragic story all round. All these years us without grandparents and them without the grandchildren that would have enriched their lives.
    I still get emotional when I think about it.
    The story goes from WW2 Indonesia to the Netherlands to NZ and Australia. My mother knew where the grandparents were the whole time but kept it from us. Too late now. Still not sure how I feel about it.
    I had a complete breakdown one night. Not a sob, a full on howling at the moon wailing.
    If we stop testing right now wed have very few cases, if any. Donald J Trump.

    We had two dogs for over 15 years, one of them died last month - sad, 3 days later the other joined him
    When the first one died I thought one of the saddest moments I have ever witnessed was my wife carrying the dog to the grave we had dug, three days later Deja bloody Vu, she was carrying the second dog to join the other, do admit to shedding a tear!

    If I want to have a good cry, I look at the video my father had made from all the 8MM film he made starting in the late 1950’s. All the now deceased grandparents and others now gone are there, young, healthy, and happy. New cars, new houses, weddings, new babies, Christmas, vacations dutifully recorded for posterity. I can cry just thinking about it!
