30 Comics That Perfectly Describe What It’s Like To Have Depression And Anxiety
I was diagnosed with mental disorders - depression and ADHD - in December of 2016. My therapist suggested me to try journaling to help me live with depression. I hate journaling.
Though I've been drawing since I was a child, I had fallen out of the habit. This webcomic was my compromise between drawing and journaling my mental health; it helped me record how I was feeling at the time and work through some of the darkness.
At first, it was scary to put my deepest thoughts and fears out into comic strips, but the responses and messages of support from people made me realize how much it was needed to talk about mental problems, and show what it can really be like.
My comics cover a variety of topics, like love, depression, self-reflection, and anxiety.
After about 6 months of making comics, I decided to quit my job and freelance part-time so that I could dedicate more time to making and promoting Just Peachy. In the future, I hope to make a book and raise awareness about mental illnesses and my personal struggle with depression.
