There's nothing funny about depression or anxiety, but some sufferers find humor to be a good way of dealing with the daily struggles of living with such mood disorders. British artist Gemma Correll is one of those people, and as you can see below, her illustrators are as funny as they are thought-provoking. Whether she's highlighting the perils of overthinking, sharing her dread at receiving a phone call, feeling bad for feeling bad, or stressing about not being stressed, the self-proclaimed "infamous anti-socialite and pug lady's" simple style and witty humor makes us laugh, but she also makes us think. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

When I visited the Grand Canyon, I told my friends that I was entering a deep depression. They didn't get it. :/

Social life, what is that? I stopped meeting friends when I had my first kid 13 years ago. Just had enough of being social. And I still don't regret it. Happier this way. :)

I used to struggle with this, and then all of the sudden I didn't. It stopped when I started playing sports and exercising again.

Could I put a picture of my verbally abusive, tantrum throwing, condescending (Despite having mild-mental retardation, which I loved him despite of.), persistently "suck what little happiness you are feeling right now, right out of you!" negative, self-centered and violent towards are oldest daughter, soon to be ex-husband on It? And then, may I destroy it while crying out all the pain from the past 10 years of being married to him?
