I've tried everything. Physical pain, mental torture, everything. And yet I find myself unable to cry. I've lost my girlfriend to suicide, my dog, and my best friend, and still I can't cry. This can't be normal. I need the emotional release, but it just doesn't trigger me, like I'm hollow inside. Please help me, I need this.

I know you mentioned close people and pets have died... but did you or have you ever felt real true love? Perhaps one first needs to love first to be able to be saddened to the point of breaking down?
Of course I could be completely wrong for many reasons... one being I haven't ever actually looked into this or situations such as yours... it's just simply a quick assumption... and also, I do remember learning that crying is something one learns to do to show that we are sad without words... but it is not necessarily necessary.. meaning that simply because there are no tears does t imply there isn't pain or sorrow present... often people make the mistake and assume that simply because someone doesn't cry with tears implies that the hit didn't hurt, or the situation didn't upset them as much etc etc.. but it's just not true..
That aside, my grandma is still alive and my dad and all his siblings always say they've never seen her cry at all... not even at her mothers funeral or my grandfathers funeral or her sons funeral... but I have seen her express herself in sad ways... yet no tears ever.. it's odd..0

I cry often. It's really weird. I start talking about how much I love my dog, I get tears in my eyes... I've always been that way. I think about my grandma i get tears in my eyes... I'm emotional and shit.0
