Cryelling is what you do when you are so upset you actually yell when you mean to cry. It happens during times of extreme stress and is a protective mechanism to not show weakness.
Mary was very upset with her boss due to some extreme workplace events and was near tears but instead Mary invoked cryelling. Then Mary went home to her kids who were fighting and she went to go sit and cry and instead cryyelled at the kids. They thought she was mad when she was really sad.
