My story of depression and thoughts of suicide. How I made it here today despite a difficult battle.
another comic about depression even though I’m not depressed at the moment by Roto
I did that thing again where I try and process really scary and emotional feelings via shitty comics
300 notes man…
Wow, someone finally put in to words my exact feelings on this…
This is perfect and needed to be reblogged.
Trying to find ways to cope with anxiety.
my computer once again stopped working. We brought it in for the third time and I was feeling pretty bummed out about it but we left the Apple Store with the promise of one of their brand new iMacs. They released a refresh on them just today. Its thinner then my current one with less glair. It will also have a faster CPU and GPU. They even threw in a free data transfer. So I left the store feeling a little less bummed and in a few days I will be blogging from a fancy new computer. I am feeling pretty lucky and Apple has a customer for life!

There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must of felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.
" Live, then, and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words, ‘Wait and Hope."
This blog is so helpful to me because to see it so exactly described by another person, makes me feel like I am not a freak, all alone out there inventing the illness.
I have been going through a bit of a low again because the death of a parent and turmoil from careless people. I felt like a failure because I had fallen into a bout of depression again after two years of improving my physical and mental health.
I think I kind of had to go through this second bout of depression to help me realize this all started with me putting pressure on my self to be perfect and feeling like I have conquered depression for good was heading down that same self pressuring road.
I will always have ups and downs because of the illness. Careless people can so easily trigger sadness if I am not careful about filtering who I let into my inner circle. I now have the tools to combat it and I know what helps me feel confident.
I realize that I need to give my self time to heal from tragedies.I must be honest with my self about my feelings. I must keep moving forward towards my goals. Continue to pursue things that help me feel good like healthy food and exercise. I must acknowledge I am what I am and that is ok. I just have to work harder at things. I have a good work ethic.
