I just want to say thank you so much for the Daily Deviation.
I am absolutely amazed by the outpouring of love and support from people. It's incredible to know that there are so many people struggling with the same things I am, and I'm so happy that this comic made people feel better.
I want to thank Istebrak
for suggesting my work; she is one of the sweetest, most talented people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting on this site. And I'd like to thank KasumiCR
for featuring me - it means so much.
I wrote this about a really hard time in my life, and spoke about a problem that I'm still experiencing to a different degree. I just want to let everyone who read this comic know, it'll be okay. Someday it will. And you'll feel a million times better.
Remember that there are people out there who are feeling exactly what you're feeling. That's not to dismiss or diminish your experiences - it's to let you know that you're not alone. There are people and resources out there for you to rely on. I promise. You just have to find the right support network.
And remember, being on medication doesn't mean you're broken or wrong, and needing medication doesn't mean you're using it as a crutch. Depression and anxiety can be a chemical imbalance in your brain - all you're doing is changing the balance.
Now go out there and win. Even if it's not today, this month, or this year, I hope you'll remember how strong you are inside.
I love you all.
