Inappropriate affect

I hate people telling me bad news as I can’t help having a broad smile on my face which is unintentionally and I feel self-conscious and pretty rotten about it. I think inappropriate affect is more common with SZ/SZA?

I’ll never forget it when my friend told me his father just died.
I broke out with laughter.

I was trying to cover it up but yeah I laughed a bit.
I’m sure he noticed.

I might have been feeling manic during the time.

Inappropriate affect is common with schizophrenia and bipolar.

I felt like crap for years after this.

I still feel like crap about it.

I had the exact reaction when my best friend told me his brother committed suicide.
