Q. Depressive? How many jokes do you need a day to have at least one smile in your face? To be depressive is no fun. I started my depression 26 years ago. During 12 years I could not laugh loud anymore. You know - the " lol " in your chats. So my personal medication were jokes, comedy films on tv or to rent a funny VHS or DVD from a store and have the fun that I needed to forget a little bit all my trouble. Find out what you need. Here I will put from time to time a joke, to keep you laughing a little.

A. I love the jokes. Made my day!!!
