My parents think I don't care about anything or anyone because whenever I get in trouble, my face just goes slack, even though it feels like I have a sulky look on. Also, I don't cry. I just can't. I might shed a few tears, but that's it. I don't like crying in front of people, but I've tried crying by myself. I can't. Even when my dear grandmother died - I didn't cry. I felt like crying though. I WANTED to cry. But I couldn't. What is wrong with me?

People experience grief in different ways and you can certainly still feel emotions without crying, also forcing yourself to cry is probably not a good idea. If you're worried about your mh, speak to your gp but I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with it.

I am the same. I find it very hard to show emotion, my mum has said I'm "cold" before. For me I think it's a fear of showing vulnerability, I'm very independent and I don't like people fussing around me. So I keep quite a hard exterior. Don't feel bad - people show emotion in different ways.
