Recently I decided I want to illustrate my personal frustrations and voice my suicidal ideation and experience with dark thoughts. When I began, I thought I might share them with my friends but got the courage to share them with everyone that I knew. When other people saw the work, they connected with the stories from their viewpoint.

Talking about suicide and people's experience is very important. I want to continue creating my images to hopefully be able to help and reach out to others struggling with dark and suicidal thoughts.  If you're interested, you can find the whole project on Facebook. I hope you enjoy it.

They want to help, don't know how and hate feeling helpless (but knowing that still doesn't really help or make a big difference)

My mother does this. She even goes so far as to try and relate and say that she's sad too because "you're only as happy as your saddest child." I'm not responsible for your life!

You won't drain people if you show your feelings, trust me. I know it's hard but talking to people helps, and one of your friends or family might actually be going though the same stuff as you and might be able to tell you ways they deal with it :).

There used to be a course about mental health first aid. A lot of people just don't understand, want to help but don't know how: and can say some fairly horrible things. Also it is very hard for us to tell people what we need.

CaughtInTheRain hello there, I am the REAL Foxxy and I would NEVER say anything like that. Some of you may not be aware but I do have a troll that is copying me. If you don’t believe me open this name and then the other Foxxy and you will see a vast difference. I am so sorry for my Trolls disgusting attitude.

You're minimizing and invalidating her feelings. That's exactly what she's trying to get people to understand! Comments like that only cause more harm.

Grrrr, I have been happy putting up with troll Foxxy for a while now but their comments on this are disgusting and a way to ruin MY reputation. This has gone too far now, you are just a pathetic asshole with no life. Just a poor excuse of a human being. To everyone who has been effected by my trolls comments I am so very sorry. As someone who suffers severe depression and chronic stress I can’t express how much I appreciate these posts. I may not always comment on them but I do read them and value them. So thank you.

Yeah, it's really lame that this artist has found a way to deal with her depression by making cartoons about it. Regardless of another artists cartoon being more powerful to you, I would never qualify anything that helps someone dealing with mental issues as lame.
