I don’t know about anyone else but I’ve recently developed inappropriate laughter where I laugh in situations that aren’t funny. No matter how much I tell myself not to laugh I always eventually end up laughing and it’s mostly when there is silence in the conversation or at the wrong time; leaving me to get in more trouble than originally planned! It has happened so often over these past months that the time has come to diagnose myself and finally say with confidence, I HAVE INAPPROPRIATE LAUGHTER AND I AM PROUD! But having said this hopefully someday I’ll find a cure but for now I am who I am and I LOVE IT.
