Bring On the Cry

Sometimes, you need a sad movie or television show just to open the sluice gate and bring on the cry. When you're feeling like shit, it can feel good to let out the tears and have a cathartic moment. Sometimes, it's the whole movie (like Schindler's List) or a scene (think Sally Field in Steel Magnolias) This list has been compiled by bloggers in the IF/pg loss blogosphere.

"Love Story". 2 seconds into the film and I am crying. Can't stop until hours after the film.

Also, "The Constant Gardner". Very tragic both of them.

I don't need any external prompting to lose it totally at the moment.

IVF is a hormonal disaster zone!

This morning I refused to leave the house because I just couldn't find a way to make my hair acceptable. Of all things. I mean it's *always* like a brillo pad.
