I actually cry a lot
07.04.2020 by User70762L74

First of all, i'm sorry if i write in the wrong way, english ain't my birth language and I'm still learning.
I've read that people with alexithymia don't cry that often.
I'm almost absolutely sure that I have alexithymia, because I share pretty much all the symptoms, but there's something different. I cry all the time, in every single situation, and after a lot of thinking, I believe that I cry because I can't understand my feelings and emotions when I face a situation with other people, and that might be the way to let it go for me.
But I don't know if I'm the only one with this crying problem, I would really like to know if there's somebody else like me.

I feel similar because I cry all the time. Mostly I cry because I am angry and overwhelmed, or because of the past and I make myself cry with music because feeling my past is the only way to feel anything at all. I am sure I either have alexithymia or bipolar 2 disorder but i am unsure of how to figure out if my thinking is wrong or right. After this social distancing I am going to therapy to try and work out my feelings.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personality trait characterized by the inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. Core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relationship.
Alexithymia is prevalent in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to be comorbid with a number of psychiatric conditions. Due the inability to cope with feelings and emotions as described in psychology there are counseling services to establish mental health.
Psychologist have argued that the alexithymia construct is strongly related to the concepts of psychological mindedness and emotional intelligence.
