  • Yes. Every one.

    When we cry, our brain releases oxytocin which gives us relaxation and serenity. It also helps to get rid of cortisol which causes stress.

    That's why we feel sleepy after crying.

  • Doesn't make me sleepy. In fact, if I get emotionally upset, I just won't be able to sleep at all (which is saying something, considering how long I already spend awake between sleeps).

    What it does do, though, is make me unable to DO things. It's THAT kind of tired. The worst kind. Can't sleep, but also can't go go go do do do like I always can normally.
    Can't do anything but sit there and marinate in it, until it just becomes overwhelming. T-T

  • I don't cry often, but when I do I actually feel tired and drained. A nice lay down and rest is sometimes needed.

  • You know, I've never really thought about it before, but it kind of does. It can be a huge release of emotions after all. It may make me (and you and others) tired because you just want to fall asleep and forget everything for a little while.
