I actually did this in a funeral at church, everyone looked at me. It was embarrassing.

That happened to me at a relatives funeral. It was pretty embarrassing for my parents. That was pre dx for me but i recall being pretty psychotic/manic at the time.

Its very much me. During early diagnosis when my father died I was having mixed emotions getting laughter and also was trying to hide it with crying. It was horrible. And when people are taking serious I used to get laughter as well. Hopefully I do not experience the same thing nowadays.

I laugh and or smile when I’m uncomfortable…

I also like to use the phrase “guess what!”
Even if it’s for something that isn’t good news…
