Hey People.

I'm just wondering how many people with TS or forms of TS have this little problem?

Scenario: I'm involved in a car crash and suddenly a hilarious thought pops into your mind and you start nearly laughing at a really inappropriate time (this is only an example)

Thanks

Yes. Sometimes it seems to others that I'm laughing for no reason, but it would take far too long to exapling why I was laughing and what I was laughing at. It's really annoying. I was talking about a radio drama once after someone on it had got raped and I started laughing :(

I get tonnes of other mental tics all the time as well :mad:

I get them too, at the most innaproppiate times too.
Example of when I was at the vet with my friend putting down his dog, and when they injected the dog with the shot I started laughing. It really ****ed off my friend,and he was even more mad that I couldnt explain why I was laughing. This use to happen when I was much younger too. I use to get spanked with cooking tools and this thick wooden sword. Everytime I was in very much pain, but I would start laughing which would get me beat even harder.

Selena:confused:Actually, this isn't just a TS thing -- I was at a workshop once and we had to look deeply into the eyes of the partner we were partnered with and a numbered of people started giggling. The instructor said that's frequently an anxiety reaction people have -- to giggle at totally inappropriate times. I know I've done it when I was being yelled at and didn't think it was at all funny, but here I was giggling. I wouldn't be surprised if it's more common for folks with TS or related forms of TS, because anxiety issues are going to be more common. (I have mild forms of TS -- my grandfather and brother have the full syndrome).

I also have some wooden spoons in my past, but thankfully I don't believe I ever giggled then.

Yes, but what you are describing, Scattered is different to what Crazygirl was saying:

Crazygirl was saying that an inappropriate thought would pop into her head at the most inappropriate moments.

Scattered, you were saying that some people laugh randomly as a nervous response, without any thoughts coming into their head.

I don't know if either is a mental tic, but Crazygirl's may be.
