Why I Laugh


"In late 2006, The International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine reported that people with severe diseases, such as chronic kidney disease, have better survival chances if they have a sense of humor and can laugh easily. The study was performed by scientists from the Nor­we­gian University of Sci­ence and St. Olav’s Hos­pi­tal in Trond­heim, Nor­way, on people with end stage renal disease who were on dialysis. According to the results, people who scored higher on having a sense of humor increased their odds for survival by about 31 percent."


  1. Interesting, have always heard that attitude is very important in dealing with life. Coming from a wacky family does help, we do seem to laugh a lot. Glad you inherited that quality!!

  2. I've been thinking about you today and just haven't had a chance to text you! So proud of you Darcy! Congrats on achieving your goal!
