    ok, that laugh jst sounds evil..lol.. I look for laughter or try and make others laugh. Both on EP and here. It's way better than medications, it's free, you make new friends along the way, both parties jst end up happy.. even if it's temporary.. so LOL's, LMFAO, and ROFLMAO...

    Everyday....

    everyday i laugh to hide the pain, weather it be physicall pain, or emotional pain, there is usually some kind of pain there, and i very rarely will show it in real life, I just laugh to hide the fact that I am hurting.

    Laughter

    When people make jokes about me, i try to laugh it off to show it doesn't bother me. when really in the inside it hurts alot and i am getting mad. I don't want to show people they are hurting me so i need to laugh it off.
