When going through depression, sometimes it’s the little things that hit the hardest.
– its not saying you’re upset cuz you messed up some toast. Its saying you’re upset cuz you can’t even make toast without messing up.

That makes so much sense. Didn’t think of it that way. Thank you.

This is not trigger free!

Where’s the trigger? You do get that people can talk about dying and wanting to die without wanting to do the deed themselves, right?

My god, this is so frighteningly accurate that I laughed out of pure shock. It’s just one thing after another, and the cards are already stacked against you at the beginning of the day: “Accidentally pulled the shower curtain liner loose. Solution: Die.”

The first time I ever had genuinely suicidal thoughts was because of a backache. Being depressed at the time does that 🙁

I laughed at the toast =.=
It’s TOO true.
With depression, it doesn’t matter what the problems is, the automatic “solution” is death.

This sadly was really funny and made me smile.
Mostly because yea, I get it.

This captures the strange mundaneness and ubiquity of death thoughts. Humor and a sense of proportion are things that help me, but are sometimes difficult to keep. Thanks for this gem.

The fact that so many people laughed at the toast bit (I did too) is actually what I like most about this comic. When it comes to dealing with a mental illness, a lot of times you KNOW how absurd your actions are but it is still a very real feeling and that’s what makes the days so hard to get through. I really appreciate how this comic can mix the right amount of humor, empathy and sensitivity without coming off as crass or preachy. I’m actually on an archive binge right now making notes of a few that really hit home to show a therapist but a lot of times I feel like these four frames explain much better than all my words.
