    I haven't cried in over 7 months even when I felt the urge to cry I couldn't. I feel like I am...

    going to explode, my doctor perscribed me some medication that is not working. I have in the past two months contemplated suiside, and I have crappy medical insurence that wont pay for therapy which makes this whole situation even worse. is there any way to get free help?

    I am not sure where you are from and that would depend on the services available, although I could say that gloabally free help is mostly available at churches. However I don't if that will be a help or not.

    I have experienced a time when I could not cry as well. Even though I should have been crying because everything was hard.

    Don't give up now, something will change.

    This is a lot more complicated to answer as I don't know what is happening

    Maybe crying is not the way to express how you are feeling?  There are many ways to express other than crying.  Provided you are not going to hurt anyone else with your emotions, try other means. 

    By the way, I have been longer than 7 months without tears.  Mainly because I didn't need to cry.

    I played a lot of sport which helped move energy.  This will always help.  It's difficult to give advice not knowing your personal circumstances, ie how much time do you have spare?  Do you have many friends or family you can communicate with?  Are there any free community based activities you can do to keep you active and out of the blues?

    Getting to the source of your malaise is better than the band-aid of medication. Also taking sugar out of your diet may help you.  It's often the elephant in the room in many cases.   I see in your question there is the link to Free Depression Help: Online Mental Health Counseling.  Give them a try.  I hope you get the help you are seeking.

    Good morning, Ssandra2268;

    I am sorry to hear of your situation. Sometimes medicines can have side effects such as not working for you at all, or making the feelings worse. It sounds as though you need different medication, but your caregiver will need to confirm this. Also, not being able to cry is fairly common for people with depression. I have suffered from that frustration myself in the past.

    Please know that I am not a licensed mental health professional so the above is from my experience, and not meant as any diagnosis.
    Contact one of the following people today, and be sure to follow through on their advice. As an alternative, you may start with your pastor who will be able to give you direction and possibly help you out financially through the church.

    Dietary changes and helping out in your community are both great ideas Keeping your mind occupied is a vital help during recovery, or gaining control over your depressed feelings. However, they are long term care plans and should be addressed or implemented after you have seen to changing your medicine, having the dose adjusted, and identifying the primary cause of your problem. Sometimes there is a chemical imbalance in the brain which must be addressed with medications, not by helping girl scouts sell cookies (I understand the ideas were offered with good intention)
    Just know there is help out there.

    1-800-273-TALK (8255)

    For other countries, here is a directory of contacts available.
    *I suggest making sure the contact is a .org, non-profit organization.

    Many churches have counselors that are FREE.  And they won't put you on dangerous drugs like the "professionals" might do. I have heard that most everyone thinks about suicide once in a while.  I had a very stressfull time in my life several years ago and I decided to seek DOG therapy.  The best therapist I know of is my dog!  If you don't have a dog, you should get one even if you have to borrow one.  This professional therapist i am holding here in this picture is named "Smoochy."
