Anxiety disorders and depression are by their very nature serious things. So serious in fact that they both tend to suck the fun and joy out of life for extended durations of time. As a result I wanted to help some of you relax a little by sharing some jokes about anxiety and depression. Yes it’s true, all this nuttiness can be funny.
It’s been known for some time that laughter can serve as a great supplemental therapy for things like stress, anxiety, and depression. It increases feel good chemicals like dopamine and simply makes you relax. Below is a great selection of dopamine inducing, relaxation promoting, big smile material.

A Personal Struggle
“I hate when people ask me the time on the street ’cause something happens to me. I just panic. I can’t read my watch. When I’m alone, I’m great at reading my watch, but when someone asks me, I just have this anxiety attack, and I just can’t make it out… I always end up saying something useless, like, ‘It’s 20 of 9:40.”

Severe Stress: A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor’s office. After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, “Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don’t do the following, your husband will surely die.” The doctor continued, “Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don’t burden him with chores. Don’t discuss your problems with him, it will only make his stress worse. No nagging. And most importantly, make love with your husband several times a week. If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely.” On the way home, the husband asked his wife. “What did the doctor say?” To which his wife responded, “He said you’re going to die.”
Hopefully you enjoyed some of these jokes. I know what is humorus to one is not to all, however if you did get some chuckles that’s all that matters.
