Have You Experienced Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA)?

Have You Experienced Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA)?

One of my early symptoms was Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA).

"If you have pseudobulbar affect you'll experience emotions normally, but you'll sometimes express them in an exaggerated or inappropriate way. As a result, the condition can be embarrassing and disruptive to your daily life." - From the link below

Here is the link to some info about Pseudobulbar Affect (PBA):

I know what you mean Joanne. The laughing can just slide into crying.

When it hits, my hubby will ask, "why are you crying?". I'll just say " I have no idea". He has learned why. On the flip side he says that if he were on stage at a comedy club and I was in the audience when one of those episodes hits, he could be seen as the best comic ever.

I used to tell everyone it was because I was happy. I couldn't control it and though it wasn't frequent ..it was embarrassing at inappropriate times . I have not had that issue for years.
