    I know exactly where you’re coming from here.

    I have a habit of going into what I call “joke mode” when I get most anxious. I feel like it is a way to deflect away from my anxiety, but actually I’m not entirely sure people are fooled by it.

    Though I am particularly comfortable with my psychiatrist, I’m not so much with my psychologist, despite having seen her for almost four years now. Once she asked me why I try to be so humorous in our sessions. She asked “Are you just trying to get a reaction?”

    In response to her question, I said “Well, of course!”

    Getting laughter in response to what I feel is humor seems to turn my anxiety into a form of elation (I have bipolar disorder too).

      It is so frustrating sometimes isn’t it Simone!

    Though the anxious part of me worries that people are laughing at me rather than with me…
