    Due to the fatigue associated with having this illness, I often don't have sufficient energy to even muster up a chuckle when I find something amusing. However when I do laugh, I often find myself having improved energy for around the next 10 minutes or so until it wears off. I also notice I don't yawn or feel the urge to yawn as often as I normally do. In an odd way, it almost feels as if I am getting more nutrient rich blood to my brain. Can anyone explain this to me?

    IMO when you laugh you increase the oxygenation of your body (organs/cells) and your brain releases endorphins.

    Maybe you should try oxygen therapy!

    @Theodore I thought so, but I don't think it's offered for me/cfs patients in Australia /: have you tried oxygen therapy/know of people who have benefitted?
