When I read in a letlter that my former husband had been murdered, I laughed uncontrollably, which was not how I really felt about this at all. I grieved for a long time about this vicious murder. Why did I laugh? Explanations of neuro impairment are probably right, although at the time I was not in bad flare.

Erica, this is exactly how it happens w me. I am tired at night and I start to smile and the feeling that something simple/ordinary is very funny builds up. I get tears in my eyes and SO says, "Oh, you are a giddy girl!" Then I can't stop laughing- it is an effort.
