    Would you give the Citalopram another try Terry, half a tablet even, as you said, given the side effects are usually transient?

    I hate the thoughts of you missing out socially

      Perhaps delete that post and we'll continue talking about Emotional Lability here because it is also an important topic.

      Love Ellie.
      Hi Ellie,

      Thank you for copying my post onto this thread. I certainly didn't want to dilute or divert MamaRic's thread and I apologise for not thinking before commenting.

      As you rightly suggested, I have deleted the offending comment.

      Sorry, everyone.

        Hi Ellie, hi Terry,

        Thank you both for your descriptions of how EL affects you. I have a clearer idea of what it's like. I can imagine it is difficult to cope with for the sufferer but also those around her/him.

          Hi Dina;

          You was thinking and it was relevant to my post on MamaRic's thread. No need to apologise for you posting there.

          People, don't worry about posting in the wrong place, just post and we can redirect you if we think it warrants it. Most threads change directions, sometimes a few times.

          Love Terry

            Hi Ellie;

            I will probably have to try it again for special occasions but I am the way I am.

            Another thing is when I am laughing at funny things, I can't do anything, not even see. I also do literally LOL, bit like Jimmy Carr:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwBITscRcGs

            But worse.

            It's me now.

            Love Terry

              Yes me too, it means I can't use my eye gaze to explain what's so funny or chat for quite some time

                I don't do the "laughing" emotional lability as much as the "crying". Even some TV adverts set me off, as do people winning on quiz shows!! How to explain that? If I see or hear something even vaguely emotional, I'm off again. I was friends with a guy with MND and we both used to regularly trigger bouts of tears in each other but then we'd burst out laughing - much to the confusion of those around us.

                  I've too had a bit more emotional triggers (over laughing, or crying) in the past 6 months or so. Hope they don't get too bad.
                  ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my ballance.
                  I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.

                    I’m 37 and I started having a weakness in my voice and then the Emotional Liability started, any laughing or crying is out of proportion, I’ve been diagnosed with ALS as of yesterday and I’m relieved because now I know I can’t change what’s happening so for the first time since my symptoms started, I’m going to the cinema to see the Lion King tomorrow, my Doc gave me Sertraline and that’s helped so much, try to not worry, there are things out there that can help
