#1083 – Other Days

 
Admittedly, not every day is the same with depression. Some are easier to handle than others. On the good days, you barely even notice it. On the bad days, though…well, see the previous comic. 

#1082 – Some Days

 
Depression is a hell of a thing. Sometimes, it’s as easy to deal with as remembering to take a pill every morning, or getting regular exercise. Other times, though, it hits you like the proverbial ton of bricks, interfering with your daily,life in ways both subtle and not-so-subtle. It’s easy to think of depression as weakness, but it’s not. It’s an illness, like cancer or diabetes or anything else, and it should be treated as such. 

#937 – The More, The Merrier

Been feeling kinda low for a few days. Medication changes haven’t gone as smooth as I’d like, and the new stuff isn’t as effective as what I used to be on. But it’s a process, and it’ll hopefully get better.

#908 – Mental Health

Mental health is a tricky thing. For years, I’ve often felt a sense of helplessness and hopelessness. I’ve been in therapy for about a year or so now, and this week saw a psychiatrist and got a prescription to help deal with the depression and anxiety I’ve been feeling since I was young.

My anxiety and depression are always gonna be there, but I think I’m well on my way to being able to manage it. I believe it’s important to talk about these sorts of things, to reduce the stigma attached to mental health issues.
