Has anyone ever done this as a means to cope? It seems to hurt less when I make fun of myself, as opposed to when others do it. I remember writing derogatory songs about myself when I was in 6th grade, and everyone wanted my autograph. One girl in the class asked me why I did that to myself, because it's mean. I don't really know, except that I use humor as a means to escape from unpleasant situations. Has anyone here ever done anything like that, or am I just totally off my rocker?
