Has anyone here ever had laughing spells at inappropiate times? my hubby who has severe and \psychotic dpression has been doing this lately, and for no apparent reason, i guess it is better then the crying spells, but i find it very odd. could he be on verge of another breakdown? it makes me very uncomfortable.

i used to do that when I had bipolar symptoms.
It could also be he does not know how to express his deep emotion. sometimes people laugh when they should cry and vice versa.

What do you mean that you used to do that when you had bipolar symptoms? Are you bi-polar or is there such a thing as just having the symptoms of a bi-polar person?

Hey jules, okay I found that odd too...I worked in mental health for many, many years.  If someone has the symptoms of BP then it is very likely they have BP...but symptoms of this can be eased with the proper medication and treatment.

As for your husband I would find that very uncomfortable too.  Have you called his doctor on it?  Are you sure he is taking his medication as prescribed?  It could be a sign of worsening psychosis so I would talk to the doctor and see if a med change is in order or an adjustment perhaps before it gets out of hand.

Please let us know how it goes...My thoughts are with you..take care

Elisha, I am going to bring it up at our next appointment with the doctor, I have a hard time getting him to take his meds, I have them all in a med container for the day, but most days i get home from work and he has not taken his morning or sometimes his noon meds, I work 2 jobs and dont know how else to ensure he gets meds .

Hi jules, Yeah...that is most likely the problem right there, he isnt getting all his meds in and becoming symptomatic as a result.  It sounds like you have so much to deal with...I'm sorry.  Certianly talk to his doctor and see if dosages can be switched around to your schedule so that you can ensure that he takes his meds.  I hope it gets better real soon, please let us know...my thoughts are with you
