Some months ago, I started drawing my thoughts as an person struggling with generalized anxiety, panic attacks and depression.

I started these drawings because I'm really bad at explaining what's inside my head, and explaining by drawing has always been a lot easier for me.

Oh good grief! I hate it when people say "it's all in your head". First of all you don't know shit about what I'm feeling or what truly goes on with me so you have no right to say that. Second, no shit it's in my head! That's where the brain is! So that's where mental illness resides.

I fall apart outside too, but it's only in my head, so nobody ever sees it. :-\

Been there, but got out of it with help of a great psychologist. So I hope you will too. Cause depression and anxiety aren't sentences for life. You have to fight it, cause you can get back to health.

I relate so much to this. The moment it's been too long since I've heard from someone I love if they don't respond to my texts I assume something terrible has happened. There really is no end to my anxiety day to day

I also think sometimes that I've been given anxiety and depression by my parents through genes. They are too naive to acknowledge they suffer from these two problems!

When you are in depression, no matter what people say to you, their words never help. Actually after listen to them, sometimes you feel worse.

It is hard. I know I don't have a right to complain when I'm not the one struggling with these things, but it hurts to see friends sinking into darkness. And not being able to do anything about it. I'm sorry.

I always hated those questions. I know they don't mean to do harm, but it just pushes me right into the dark mode again if a million people come up to me and ask me how I am - and I am not supposed to tell because no one is interested anyhow and it would take too long, so I just say fine, although I am not fine. Furthermore questions like these make me wondering about IF I AM fine or not and you can bet, THEN I am not anymore because suddenly I remember ALL the things why I should definitely not be fine. Also, they make you feel weird. Just acknowledge that I am there, be happy for god's sake don't be surprised (or at least don't show) if I show up. It just makes me want to turn around and go.
