    I don't know if this belongs here but it seems OK. I was just thinking that in my opinion, as long as I can still laugh (at myself or whatever), I'm still not in too bad a predicament.

    Odd as it is, I've never had a problem laughing. Genuinely. Maybe I laugh too much. I probably think some things are funny that aren't. But it keeps me from getting too dark. Life would be almost unbearable without the occasional laugh.

    I don't know what I'd do if I still couldn't laugh occasionally!

    I don't have a problem laughing, guess that means I'm not that bad off. No matter how bad a day I am having, someone can always make me smile or laugh.

    Ehhhh...what bothers me, though, is that sometimes I laugh for no reason :wink:

    i've not laughed nor smiled for many many months, I used to be a talkative person but I don't talk much anymore and can go on for a day without uttering a word.

    Whenever someone start talking seriously to me, or when I get into a "fight", I can't help but laugh for no reason. The mere fact that people come and begin talking about a serious issue makes me laugh, and the worst is I can't control myself. I mean, I don't want to laugh, I don't even feel the need to, but I laugh. And when some guy tells me his grandmother just died and I just keep smiling at him, that's just plain embarrassing.
    oh well, I know I'm weird

    Haha I used to be able to laugh without reason even if I'm down. But now it's just completely...I just can't really laugh. But a few days ago I went out with friends that I like and miss a lot and I was able to laugh, even though I still feel a tinge of sadness when I laugh :/
    Yes laughter does make you feel better but I think it's not good to laugh all of a sudden much. Think eh it probably will drive your ownself crazy soon? I'm not sure xD

    I chose no.

    Somethimes i still laugh, but that becomes part of my function...so it is not honest and just a part of the role play which is called my life.

    yep. even at my deepest depression i was still laughing. the psych nurse said "this is a serious situation, do you always make jokes" and the psych yelled at me "do you think this is a joke?" .... but what can i do?

    for instance, the psych ward is called "GF" here in ireland, it's the usual letter combos for the ward... it's "GF" for ground floor... my brother in law said that's cos if you jump out the window you don't have far to go. i thought that was hilarious. still do

    depression can steal everything else from me but it won't take my sense of humour.

    I can still laugh, yeh. That's no problem. The dilemma is I've forgotten how to cry.

    Anyway, I like checking out old episodes of SCTV, Monty Python, and Benny Hill on YouTube. Check em out!

    I agree with dazzle. "Depression can steal everything else from me but it won't take my sense of humor." I am very depressed but can still get a good laugh. Besides, I grew up in a house of jokes and laughing, so it's second nature to me to enjoy jokes and word plays and such.

    If I stopped laughing I would already be dead. Hell, death is probably the only way I'd stop laughing. Chances are I will find something to laugh about even when I'm killing myself.

    I can still laugh, but it's becoming harder and harder... also, while I still genuinely laugh, I usually am not happy when I do so, anyway... isn't that odd that you can genuinely laugh, despite you being so empty inside?

    I still can laugh, tho not sure it's genuine. Maybe just hysterical laughter... not on solid ground right now so not sure how to answer...
