I’m a Polish social media manager based in Berlin. I have been drawing ever since I can remember. I started with comics as a child, at school, and then at high school. Then came studies, work, moving abroad and I stopped with my passion. And then came the depression. I have been in therapy for two years—with all its ups and downs. My best friend has also been encouraging me to start drawing again to avoid negative thoughts. A few months ago, I had a crappy day where I couldn't even get up and get motivated. I then had an impulse to go for a walk. When I was walking, I saw a school supply store, I went in, bought a drawing pad and watercolors, and I started drawing comics to better represent how I feel and to deal with my depression and anxiety.

My stories are about Depression Chicken and his thoughts, about his talks with his best friend Birdfish, and about his struggles with therapy with the lovely Frau Serduck. For me, words are not always the best way to express myself and how I feel in the moment, but it works with my comics. And yes: Depression Chicken, c’est moi.

I know how much it takes to get up and start doing something when you suffer from depression. I just wanted to share my story with you and maybe plant a seed with you that will blossom with a beautiful idea over time. That's how it was with me and my best friend. He would probably say to me now, "Didn't I tell you?" Depression is a real thing and I try to help my followers, to make them laugh and feel that they are not alone. I also share a lot of content from reliable sources on my Instagram, hoping that it can help my followers.

It is sooo frigging hard to explain to someone who has never experienced panic or anxiety what it feels like. It's debilitating. And you don't know how, why when..........it's just BAM there...... sucks
