      I made a joke earlier because I was very hyper that my "adh was d'ing" (thought it would make more sense if I said my "add was h'ing")

      I got told multiple times by family members that I must not have children and my response was "so, what? You're going to disown me because I made a decision on my own?" I got surprised looks, funny looks and some angry glares. Guess I proved them right.

      When a guy I was seeing saw my insulin pump, he asked what it was, I told him it’s for diabetes, and he asked if he could catch diabetes like an STD 😂

      Some of my tics are kinda funny, one of them is just saying om-nom-nom.

      I was extremely manic and asked my super hot oil change guy if he wanted to sleep with me. I said it in French too. So embarrassing. I also got stuck on top of a mountain and search and rescue showed up. I was on the front page of the paper. Gotta love mania. I have so many more too.

      I have anxiety and one day at work I had to use the intercom to do closing announcements. Instead of saying thank you for shopping at target, I said Walmart. Why? Idk. Just came out lol. Oops

      My throat randomly growls/croaks like a frog or something because of a distinction with my esophageal sphincter. It used to embarrass me but I've learned to joke about it.

      Whenever my bones pop out and it makes a loud popping noise it’s kinda funny because my friends will look at me and be like “was that your joints?????” Like yeah bro this happens idk it just be like that 🤧

      Funny? The first time that I had a seizure at work, the manager came to check on me. When I started to come around a little bit, I just looked at him and started rubbing his bald head 😂. Lol everyone still makes fun of me for that, including me.

    • TheUglyDuckling

      532d

      Well, strangely enough when people make fun of me and play back my intrusive thoughts out loud… I mean, I can’t help but laugh. Cuz it’s absurd. I mean, everyone with intrusive thoughts and pure ocd is kind of funny though when you think about it. Some of us even heal so much that we laugh at ourselves later in laugh.

    • ashbear2022

      I was taking care of my spouse when they had covid, I fell off the toilet because I was so tired. Not really funny in the moment but looking back we joke about it while making Elvis references lol.

    • Mr._Dank

      539d

      I’ve passed out from panic attacks many times. It’s funny because of how much people freak out. One time someone thought I died😭 when I pass out my eyes stay wide open and I don’t move or I start shaking. Another time I legit hit my face on the counter and fell on the ground. Idk why but I find it hilarious. Not in the moment but later it definitely is.

      I got asked by a friend if my schizophrenia is actually me having an ability to see the dead and talk to spirits and stuff in regards to the part of hallucinations and hearing voices they mean. I was like wow that’s not even how it works haha I couldn’t stop laughing because my friend said it so casually too like they legit wondered it

      1.I was having a tic attack and walked into my agender, omnisexual, polygamous sibling's room while their SO was on the phone to get a stuffed animal of mine they borrowed. I walked through the doorway and loudly tic "GAY" 2. I went to my doctor and he asked me how my meds were working. He looked up and found that I was asleep. This was my narcolepsy specialist

    • VeggieSandwichQueen

      599d

      Not funny-haha but funny in a learning-to-advocate-for-myself kind of way. I have PCOS and high androgens, and my first doctor told me when I was a teen that there were no treatment options aside from the pill I was already on and therefore, I should just use them to get super jacked. I took it a step further and did that *so* well that I developed an eating disorder (only funny because I’m fully recovered now)😂 I came back like “I DID IT” and my therapist was like “well..you did SOMETHING.” If there are any doctors on here, be careful what you say to your young, impressionable patients!

      One time I was walking down the street and using a sun umbrella because of sun sensitivity from Lupus. I was about to head into a store when a guy came up and hit on me, and asked me about my umbrella. I was totally uninterested in this guy and got bad vibes, so I answered him by saying "I have a disease called Lupus and I have to use this umbrella to protect me from the sun." His eyes got real big and he bolted away. The store manager overheard (the door was open) and told me that the dude I was talking to definitely wanted to take advantage of me, but bolted because he thought Lupus was a contagious STI. IDK of he really thought that but the whole thing made me laugh 😂

      Not me but my older sister. She had severe scoliosis, and wore a hard plastic and metal brace under her clothes. A bully threatened to punch her in the stomach, so she shrugged and said "Go ahead." So the girl punched her and injured her hand. My sister laughed and said "my daddy is a tanker, I wear armor."

      613d

      I guess its less funny and more just sweet. One of my students learned that I take medication for my adhd just like he does and for the rest of the year he gave me reminders to "take my meds" at lunch 😊 I didnt have the heart to tell him I switched to an extended release and only took them in the morning because he was so happy to connect on that little thing

      614d

      As someone with IBS , within my family we have code words for having to go to the bathroom. One of our words is simply the Slovak word for diarrhea (we're from slovakia but speak English to each other, so we'll say; 'I need to go sratčka'). Only problem is when we go to Slovakia and forget where we are....then literally the only word people understand in that sentence IS the word 'diarrhea'. Haha

      • sabbymer

      The second time I was committed in a mental institution they did a strip search and wrote and documented all the scars and abrasions and determining features on my entire body because I was in the high risk ward. But the employee accidentally dropped my underwear in the garbage and it was actually kind of funny. They didn’t know what to do so I just had no underwear on after that until either they found some later or something I’m not really sure I don’t remember I was pretty deeply psychotic. But the person who accidentally dropped my underwear was embarrassed and it made the stop search a little less mortifying- to me.

      I overheard Someone saying I was maybe on drugs. My caregiver and I said VERY loud it's a rare movement disorder I need deep brain surgery for. Then embarrassed them about ableism. Think before you say dumb shit and don't judge. I shouldn't have laughed when a few ppl cried once.

      • Egg.Sprinkles

        619d

        @Sleak67 I would’ve laughed heartily in their face. They should hold their tongue more in the future due to their embarrassment lol.

      I had a boss once that hated me and I never knew why. I was always kind and polite to him and i was also the top worker he had. He was always very vain and flashy and soon I found out from others that he was very prejudiced against overweight people. Long story short I saw a picture of him a couple years back and he had gotten huge, bigger than me! Would love to see him sometime so i could look him up and down like he used to do me, but I probably wouldn't because that would put me on his level, a place I never want to be.

      622d

      The event isn't funny but my brothers reaction to it was. My legs give out on occasion and they did but I was far from home so I wanted someone to walk back with me so I called my brother and he like sprints up this moutain and I was feeling really bad for disrupting his evening and he just says oh please I would sprint up here if I saw a cool bug. That made me laugh. He's so wonderful.

      My mother had cancer a few times which is not a sentence you ever think you're going to say. But through it all she coped with humor and by the end of things she had one breast and one eye and then had liver cancer and she had said if I have two they can have one, and I was like wth mom you only have one liver! She would also say things like I have my eye on you. She had these drainage jugs from after her mastectomy and she would talk about having to adjust her jugs she's a pretty funny lady and I miss her very much. The liver cancer that's the one that got her

      Mine is because of my dysphoria. I'm trans and occasionally use an STP (stand to pee) packer, and mine is fairly realistic. You obviously have to wash it at the end of the day. I left it on the edge of the tub to dry and forgot about it. By the time I remembered, my sister and dad had both seen it, so I was like w/e, I'll just leave it. My mom got home and immediately comes out of the bathroom and yells "Josh what is this?!" "My packer!" "You're what?" "My packer!" "I don't know what that is!" And then my sister yelled, IT'S HIS DICK MOTHER!"

      I can't remember what I did or didn't do to cause my mother to yell at me but my adhd saved me from trauma in that moment because I went from scared and starting to get sad to fixating on her face and then I started laughing. My mother got more angry turning a brighter shade of red and saying she's serious and asking what was funny. I told her I'm sorry I just can't take you seriously when you look like angry Bob the tomato she started to laugh and I continued with and your forehead wrinkles are spelling WTF. She died laughing and forgot to be mad after that

      Chronic UTIs. Came back from a trip with UTI symptoms that hadn’t gotten better in a few days, set an appointment for a day after I came home. Got home and was okay but lots of pain and nausea. Because it was around my birthday I went with my family to go buy my first car, I was super excited but had to Uber home because I started to feel so sick. Took a nap and didn’t feel much better so I call my mum who said I needed to go to urgent care. My dad HATED that, he thought I was being dramatic and was so upset saying “I don’t know why you need to go to urgent care” and “what are they even going to do for you?” Arrive to urgent care and my UA was all blood basically so they sent me to ER😂 He didn’t see the UA and thought it was just drs being dramatic. On way yo ER, the says to my mum “you know they are crying in the car basically dying so idk what you want from me!” Turns out I was actually dying of severe sepsis and was going into organ failure 😂😂 He said he felt bad but I can’t stop laughing at him being upset

      i was at a pool party with a bunch of friends and i walked in on them doing a bit, except my ND ass didn’t know it was a bit, so when my friend said "yeah, what’s your favourite movie? personally, my problem with dating is that everyone i’ve romantically loved has pushed me away only to lead me back in when thry need me. i also love breakfast at tiffany’s." and i was like "are we talking about (their ex’s name)?" and everyone laughed until they couldn’t breathe and only when they showed me a tiktok did i get the bit. don’t worry their ex wasnt at the party

      Very true about the migraines. The lucky ones that don't get them. Mine used to get soo bad with the cyst I had in my brain. I couldn't lat down or they got worse. They were soo bad I'd be in tears within a couple mins and I got soo nauseous from the pain I'd vomit stomach acid. No one knows the worst taste ever until they taste that. 🤢 it makes me sick thinking about it. When the cyst like magically vanished though the pains got sooo much better. Less hospital trips and all. 🙏

      I haven't really had anything funny happen but when I was 12 or 13 I kept telling my mom about how my back hurt all the time her and my grandma would tell me I didn't know what pain was and I was too young to have pain.... needless to say when I was 14 I was going to get in the shower and my mom came in the bathroom and where I was bent over turning the water on my mama seen how messed up my back was and to this day she still apologizes cause when I was 10 the dr told her I had a slight curvature of the top of my spine and for years I tried telling my mom remember what the dr said n she just dismissed me.... when she took me to the spine dr and the did x-rays my spine is in the shape of an S then when I went to another spine dr to get his opinion on it I needed surgery or not when I was 17 the dr had the audacity to say scoliosis don't cause pain!!!!!

      I overheard someone say she could be on drugs. I gave them a card that explained dystonia and proceeded to tell them now I'm waiting to see if I'm a candidate for deep brain surgery. I hate going in public sometimes the comments to my face are weird. I already deal with social anxiety so I know the tremors and weird moments I can't control unless alternative medicine before going out are causing ppl to stare and draw more attention to me. I guess it's not funny when happening but after they find out it's funny how embarrassed they get lol

      My migraine is a very specific kind where I suddenly feel like I'm really, REALLY hot. Took years to learn it was a migraine because we were looking at early menopause and thyroid issues and stuff. But anyways, during the winter when I'm having a migraine I'll often go outside in a tshirt and pants and plop down right in a snowbank. The looks I get sometimes...

      A friend of mine told me surgery's don't hurt when you wake up. I told him the complete opposite because I have had surgery before but he didn't believe me. So a couple days go bye and he has to get the same surgery I did. I told him to be prepared for the pain a take the painkillers the give you when you wake up. Guess what he did he didn't and minutes later he started screaming like a man who was hit the balls times 10. I told him the next day I told you to take the painkillers

      Some of my mental issues cause me to be very forgetful. I worked at a pizza chain for 2.5 years and all my coworkers expected when I walked into the walk in cooler for something, I was going to poke my head out to ask what I went in there for. Its great for making me do laps around the house because I set something down, forgot where I put it, searched the whole house, then couldn't find my phone which turned out to be in my hand.

      The funniest? I'd say the one time my ADHD just lost control. I couldn't focus on anything while in class once.. So I needed to recenter myself. Back then the way I did that was by yelling a random word. This is fine at home.. Not at school. So when I jumped out of my seat and yelled cheese at the top of my lungs, only to sit back down like nothing happened... Needless to say everyone was lost and trying not to laugh.

      One time in highschool I went to the nurse to get my second feeding cause I had a feeding tube due to my Gastroparesis and there was a kid in there and saw my line to my back pack pump. It went off to let the nurse know it was time to refill and the kid shuttered like it was contagious. I didn't say anything but after the nurse filled my bag up and hooked it back up to the machine, somehow my line popped off and sprayed the kid. I swear I've never seen someone turn so white. After the nurse fixed it she told the kid he'd be alright, it was just formula. The kid walks past me out of the room and the nurse leans over and whispers karma sweetheart. She didn't do it in case anyone thinks that but it was karma I believe. I felt bad but at the same time it was kinda funny to me.

      The first time I got an ocular migrane it didn't even hurt that bad but I went blind in the middle of math class and had to get someone to call my parents to pick me up. The whole class was freaking out and they almost called an ambulance. I was just sitting calmly and the whole ordeal was funny to me

      It’s not related to migraines. I’m still having testing done to figure out what the condition is, but I have episodes of severe abdominal pain with nausea, sometimes I also vomit. I was driving home, but was about 20 minutes away when an episode started. I was feeling really nauseous and I didn’t want to throw up in my car. I got off the high way and stopped at the first gas station I saw. I went in and asked to use their restroom. The person working said they didn’t have one. So I asked for a plastic bag. They gave me a bag (along with a weird look) and I left.

      Back in elementary school years (about 2nd/3rd grade) I was feeling like I was going to throw up when we were all in the library for that days lesson. I had my hand up for about 5 minutes before the teacher called on me, and when I told her I needed to go use the bathroom immediately she dismissed me and didn't let me go, saying the end of the lesson was near and continued doing her lesson. I put my hand up again and she promptly ignored me, leaving me with my hand up for a longer while. I needed to throw up so I got up and the teacher called for me to come back, but not before I puked up my breakfast all over the library floor in front of everyone. Wasn't funny then, but funny for the karma value. I think back every once in a while to that moment and wonder what the teacher and librarian thought in that moment.

But within seconds my psychiatrist went OH. MY. GAWD. Yep, you’re hyper manic! Haha 😂 it was back when I was first diagnosed and I had no clue that what I was wearing clashed!!!🤣🤣🤣

      When I had my first surgery I freaked out because I metabolize anesthesia super fast and wake up almost completely clear headed. I told the anesthesiologist that I had been awake for the majority of a colonoscopy a few months before (I swear I kept hearing "shoot her again!") And she reassured me that I'd be getting the Michael Jackson Cocktail. I asked her if she was planning on killing me too and she lost it.

      I get compared to a coworker with similar diagnoses often. I would have to say that the funniest thing was when the person who does this got told off by the other worker. She had major surgery and was visited by this person where she explained what I've been saying for weeks, no two people with the same illness will have the exact same symptoms. We'll see if he actually lays off like she said to.

      In first grade we had an exercise for open house where the teacher would blow a horn while we had our eyes closed, and then draw what we saw afterwards (meaning what you saw in your mind’s eye/how the horn made you feel). Most of the other kids drew their family, a little sun in the corner of the paper, trees, etc. I grabbed the black marker and colored the entire page black. Then the parents came in for open house. My parents saw mine and freaked out, thinking I was a psychopath or something. They nervously asked me why I drew the page black, and then started cracking up when I answered: “Mommy, they asked me to draw what I see when I close my eyes. And when I close my eyes, I can’t see anything. So I drew it black.”

I had to wait for close to an hour once I got there... ten minutes before my appointment... So, I said, "Let's hurry, because I really need to pee," to the tech. Her response... "Do you think you can pee just a little bit?" To me. "Absolutely not. If I try to pee a little, I'm gonna pee a lot," was my response. And I find that day hilarious.

      Believe me if you cut down on salt and stop eating french fries and all that stuff and tacos and well there is a way to make tacos but you got to get the recipe and all that stuff once you cut out the stuff you're not supposed to have you will start losing weight! The doctor told me and this is my doctor said to buy the Morton salt and it's light salt but it's still salt but it's like okay so I just put a little bit and I can taste it. I also change from oil to olive oil. I got the extra virgin smooth olive oil at Walmart that one you can't taste anything you don't have the taste of whatever you think it tastes like and it doesn't have a smell believe me I fry my scrambled eggs with just a pinch of it and I love it

        @Asta *Also as a note: a majority of my classmates knew and have seen me have one before so they weren’t surprised. We had a sub that day so they were trying not to laugh at the teachers reaction. Plus I felt it coming so I took the chance it was better having it standing than hurting myself sitting at my desk.

      i was singled out in a class in high school by a teacher because he knew i had anxiety. we had to present a project ,so instead of me taking the fail like i normally would, he called me first and made it really awkward and then stood there the whole time next to me holding my shoulders making sure i wouldn’t move while i read the whole thing in front of everyone.

One of my coworkers who grew up souther Baptist said “Well maybe you just need to pray about it.” Another coworker, who’s gay, responded to her with “Hm, pray it away? B/c that worked so well for us gays.” 🙄 I just about DIED when he said that! She turned beet red and quickly left talking about some “meeting” 🤣 Yea, ok Debbie, just pray away your humiliation

        @zenosparadox unfortunately most of my disabilities are internal it sucks because it's so invisible. And the one disability that is not got fixed what it was three at least partially it got fixed in the sense that my thumbs don't walk but now I get phantom pains in the joints. I've also had people that thought that I did not actually have nvld because I am not always nonverbal. But there are times when I go semi nonverbal.

Then proceeds to tell me that I’m not hearing voices in my head that it’s just my Conscience. Then proceeded to tell me that I need to go back to (insert horrible mental facility here) and get evaluated. Then proceeded to keep asking me if all the conditions I have ate things I know I have or think I have. Lady I really do think I know my body better than you.

      When I was in middle and high school I was in classes for the learning disabled. (Come to find out I had severe trauma impacting my learning.) So, here is the funny thing. I took a placement test to see what I should do after high school (remember, no college, to dumb) and it said I should be a skating rink attendant. I presented it to my school counselor and she said, "nah, maybe you should do window dressing the mannequins at the mall." So when I graduated from a private college with a bachelor's in social work and a minor in psychology with honors (4.0 all the way through baby!!!) I took that damn thing that I worked so hard for and said. I can now take your job. She was stunned!!!

My moms a c 5-6 quadriplegic so she understands that I cope with humor, as does she. I was laying in bed, in the dark, waiting for the meds to kick in, and my dad came walking in my room with the light on in the hallway and I told him my head hurt, he said something along the lines of you still need to take your other meds etc. I get nauseous with migraines so it makes it harder to do so without getting sick. I sat up, looked at him, and said “my brain is telling me it doesn’t like you and to turn off the light, it’s angry” for whatever reason he busted out laughing and turned off the lights since my brain asked and “not me” 😂🤦🏼‍♀️

And while I was with this individual is when I got sick he was very supportive of me with all that I went through and even though I gained so much weight as a result of the sepsis because I had such a large amount of bacteria in my body and it made my body swell and grotesque I just have a lot of respect for him sticking behind me when some men would walk away.

      When my Crohns disease was killing me at 14, a new youth pastor from my family's church came to pray for me. It was the first time he'd ever had to go to a hospital for a kid from his group. He was with 2 other pastors. They put their hands over me and he started praying. He only got 1 sentence in before I started projectile vomiting blood across the room. Scary moment, funny memory. He's a cool dude, total metalhead, horror-obsessed guy like me. Today he describes it as both the most badass thing he's ever seen 😂

I have no idea where I got it but you can die from one and I have both it damaged my pancreas my gallbladder my liver and made me a type two diabetic so my diet is very strict as far as no hamburger ,no sausage, and I gotta be very strict with eating very little or no fried food. If one of my friends told me that I would be very offended because they don’t know my battle just like they don’t know your battle and how strict you have to be.

        @Spanketti i swear i almost asked if you were my mama bc she did this samething to her now roommate who said "migraines could never compare to the pain SHE faces" but then got surgery done which resulted in migraines and a realization that comparing illnesses to one-up someone just swings open the door for karma lol

          @Skelliosis yeah it sucks to be compared with because to be honest every disability is disabling to the person who has it hence the name disability. While not every disability affects people in the same exact way it's really upsetting to be the person who's told that your disability isn't as disabling as the other person's because they can hide it better. You never know what is truly going on in another person's life that is why I don't say that mine is worse or at least I do my best not to. I have done that with weather but not with disabilities usually. So there are a lot of times when I will say that another person's is worse than mine because of issues with being called too sensitive and overreacting.

      Nothing. The best is making others realize how intolerant of disabilities they are.

        @Golly I get nasty looks and comments all the time for using the handicap stall in public restrooms and my favorite comeback is, “Oh and you didn’t look ignorant, guess we’re both wrong. Have a nice day.”
