Are you laughing at me?

Who doesn’t remember the days in elementary school or high school (or this weekend out on the town, for that matter) when you heard the sound of laughter and thought: are they laughing at me?

Well, if you become so overly concerned with such thoughts that it makes you sweat, become still with anxiety, or cause your heart to race, a new CNN article now reports that you might have gelotophobia.

Not surprisingly (at least to me anyway), 14% of Americans – very high on the list globally -are said to have this condition.
