Really?! I have got to find that episode!
Seriously, I know that it'd a minimum leave me
feeling less sickly, freakish- I've often
scared myself at some of the things at which
I've laughed to the point of bending over at the
waist, as tears streamed down my convulsing face!
Mitch, it's so bad that when I read your message
and thought of Mary and the gang dealing with the
clowns death, I started laughing hysterically at
just the thought of such a thing (still laughing,
but tying to type all the while!)
Sheesh! I've always felt like such a demented
misfit (remember Rudolf and the land of Misfit toys?
Yeh... talk about dated? [ha ha} Anyhow, that's always
where I felt that I belonged as a result of this
I've laughed at things that weren't funny (still do)
and couldn't stop (still can't). It truly is a reaction
that doesn't always fit in, yah know? I laugh more at
that which is DEFINITELy NOT FUNNY than I do at that
which is socially considered to be so.
If they have a drug for this type of behavior, I'd
without a doubt, want to take it (only under the conditional,
"it won't screw me up even more," clause, of course!)
Jeez.. just thinking about how pathetic often appears to me and
all the psych problems I have will put me in hysterics...
Speaking of which... I'd better stop! (hee hee)
Thanks so much for the message, Mitch! (big smle)
Addendum: If anyone out there in cyber land has heard of some helpful
med., please, let me know. Were there such a pill, I'd no doubt lose
the tight ab muscles (credited to fits of laughter), but in trade, I'd
possibly gain back a few friends.... (already trying not to laugh at these things which aren't funny!)
Does anyone out there have any better an idea what all this Laughing is about and
if medical treatment options are currently available?
