Sometimes a little humor goes a long way

In my ongoing journey through anxiety I have come across many different things. One of those things are jokes. Now these are meant to be funny, if you have anxiety, my hope is you see these and smile. If it upsets you that was not my intent, I think if we can laugh at ourselves a little bit, things become a touch easier.

Here are 5 jokes/quips I have found in my travels that made me lol a little bit

  • I have generalized anxiety disorder, but it sucks because it affects me specifically.
  • What exactly is a serious mental illness? As opposed to those what? Carefree, happy go lucky ones?
  • I’m as anxious as a one-eyed cat watching two rat holes.
  • Claustrophobic people are more productive thinking out of the box.
  • My girlfriend left me because she couldn’t handle my OCD. I told her to close the door five times on her way out.

I know some of these are really stupid but I still LOL. Maybe this is a sign I’m in a better place with my anxiety. I don’t know, I hope from time to time in your journey with anxiety you can laugh about it. It’s not a joke, but we do what we can to get through the day. Sometimes a stupid joke can carry the day !

  1. I think it’s important to see the funny side of anxiety. I used to hate people joking about it, really used to get to me, but now it’s just making light of the situation. It’s definitely a step in the right direction x

  2. I’m having major anxiety at the moment, panic attacks are almost back…thanks for making me have a little lol moment and lightening up my mood! By the way I scored 9 / 10. I must definitely be a Gen Xer 😎
