Depression is no laughing matter, but it helps

humorLaughter may just be the best medicine when you’re feeling sad and a little down.
But how about telling jokes, can it help your depression?

While laughing about depression may seem wrong, therapists say that sharing intimate – and often uncomfortable – details of your depression can sometimes bring a hint of humor to the situation and a few wisecracks can be therapeutic. In fact, for some people with depression, making others laugh really is good medicine as humor is a healthy defense mechanism that allows a person with depression to control an unpleasant situation.
It allows them time to adjust their thoughts and gives them time to re-adjust and recover.

SO tell a few jokes…….

Btw – My doctor has just prescribed me a dose of anti-depressants…
…which I’m not happy about.

My wife says she’s leaving me because of my addiction to antidepressants.
– Won’t be needing them anymore then.

My doctor said LSD has had a serious effect on my mental health and altered my state of mind to the point where I’m walking around in a constant dream world. I decided to get a second opinion, he must be overreacting because the Lizard King from the 5th dimension of Nazkabar says I’m just suffering from stress.

Yesterday, I took two laxatives in addition to my Prozac.
-I can’t seem to get off the toilet, but I feel good about it.

You know you’re having a bad day when even the Rice Krispies give you the silent treatment.
