I kinda haven't divulged much of my personal life on here but I'm in a much better place right now so I feel more comfortable talking about it, long story short once I started art classes at university in 2010 my mental illness decided to activate and I went untreated from 2010-2014. I was depressed, had major anxiety, and dealt with suicidal thoughts. I quit my cashiering job because it aggravated my anxiety too much, I was able to get my art degree in 2013 but when I went back to school to study accounting I literally wanted to die every time I tried to do my homework because the information just swam around in my head and I couldn't concentrate at all. That was pretty much the turning point, I was failing all my classes that semester because I was constantly having panic attacks and then finally I was like ok this isn't doable anymore I gotta get help. tbh I think you can tell what my head space was like at that time because the comic got more dreary and not cute at all during that time. So I've been going to a psychiatrist for the past two years and I finally feel like myself again. I still have symptoms, but they are much more manageable now. Like the only major regret I have in my life is that I didn't get help sooner. I spent my entire college career in a fog, I wish I could have been able to study and produce art as the real me. But now I have a steady job again and a tight circle of friends who are my support system and everything is nicer.

Yaaaay! I'm so glad you got help and are in a better place! I still always love when you post, even if it's a year later. Your headspace has always been super weird but in a really awesome, I-wanna-see-more kinda way. :)
I'm glad you're back and crusin'. :) You eventually got help and that is what matters. :)
