Sparkle of Hope

My husband caught me laughing and smiling today! That's a good sign. I almost forgot what my laugh sounds like and how it feels to laugh. I hope it continues. Maybe the lamictal is starting to work.

I remember after I had my breakdown... I was in deep dark depression for months.. almost wanting to give up.. and then one day, about 5 months into it... my therapist said something that made me laugh... and it was a surreal moment... I couldn't even remember laughing.. it has probably been 10 months or more that I hadn't laughed... So, you are right.. it is a glimmer of hope.. hold on to it..

Yea! I am so glad to hear that the laughter has broken through the depression! I hope the Lamictal continues to work for you and you can continue to smile and laugh.

I am so happy for you! I'm still waiting on the laughter to kick in. I guess it is only a matter of time.

I hope so--it was fleeting, but it was there. And then I got really depressed after, which made it that much harder to cope with, but I had another brief but good moment today. I hope you find some laughter in your life soon too!
