    when im crying ill just snap out of it and the tears will stop and then i start smiling. i cant control it, especially the smiling i dont know why but its starting to scare me a little. when im sad idk how to explain but ill just feel happy that im sad and start smiling. it bad becuase when my parents make me cry ill start smiling and theyll think im faking it.

    is this normal?

    hi and welcome to beyond blue.

    just to make sure I am on the right page, are you saying that being sad makes you feel happy/smiling?

    perhaps you could give me an example of when this is happening? and tell me your thoughts and feelings?

    as for whether it is normal - it is for you. It's a question/statement I will tell my psychs and the reply I get is "what is normal?".

    I am listening to you so please tell me more.

    Tim
