Question: Question about Crying
|allamericanmom - Fri Jan 07, 2005 9:50 pm||
This may be a silly question, but is there a race of people that are physically unable to cry? Or is there a medical condition that yields no crying in its sufferers?
I'm having an intellectual debate with some other medical professionals, and we're trying to come up with a definitive answer.
Any help you can offer would be great!

In my opinion, the inability to cry would be related to depressive disorders affecting any race and not confined to one in particular.
