im watching an air crash investigations and they’re going through a chat log of what happened in a cockpit with these three pilots who are fucking up at every possible point in time trying to save this plane, trying to understand why the plane is doing what it’s doing which is also being commentated by experts at the same time explaining why everything they did was wrong and i’m feeling really anxious and then i realised that those three pilots are actually me.
Q:In the spirit of Halloween, what's Nancy's favorite horror movie or story?
"Sometimes I Get Sad and I Don’t Know Why"
So a couple years ago I went through what I’m pretty sure was depression. I was never diagnosed, but looking back all of the signs were there. I also suffered from anxiety, which was a whole other monster entirely.
Depression is something a lot of people go through, but the scary thought is a lot of us don’t even realize what is going on, that it could be treatable, that we could actually get help. Sometimes it goes away on it’s own. Sometimes it doesn’t.
I know this comic doesn’t exactly have a “happy” ending, but it was important for me to convey my big fear of that depression coming back. I feel like knowing what was going on, what may happen again, helps me a lot. If I can help somebody by sharing my experience, then I’ll feel even better.
