It is Crying.

I was looking for this info (Why do we cry) because I could not work out why my eyes leak when I recall trauma or hurt myself.

It is interesting and there are other sites with info. I just thought I would see what happens in here. I can't say I know the answer yet as I cannot link the emotion to the teardrop.

And I won't be upset if you don't read it. ;)

I don't cry more than once a week! Once a month, maybe ...

so the rule doesn't apply to me. I weep unashamedly when the film director decides I should, or when I hear certain music. My wife says it's OK because I do it silently and manfully - tears but nothing else.

Oh, my partner is Welsh and a total softie. He cries more than I do.

Having said that, I have just shed a tear or three at ER.

Greys anatomy is doing it for me now, I'm afraid. Don't tell anyone.

When Bruce Willis dies in Armageddon does it for me, rather pathetic I know but there you have it.
