Even when I was in a crowd,
I was always alone.
Sheridan: I never forget the feeling of helplessness. I never thought there could be anything worse than being all alone in the night.
Delenn: But there is. Being all alone in a crowd.

There’s something that rages in me when young people quote actors reciting scripted quotes that belong to neither.
It just shows how low we’ve sunk.

…can I suggest you stop watching plays, movies, television shows, or other acted media then?
A totally necessary comment for a comic about negativity and depression.
Laura P. Schulman, MD, MA says
I don’t get what any of you are talking about. I very much get the comic, because as a person with depression/bipolar on the Autistic Spectrum, I am so used to feeling like the character feels that I no longer bother going to social events, because I get so lonely I just want to…..go home.
I have no idea what the OP was talking about and how it relates to the comic above, I was seriously hoping someone could have explained it to me 🙂
I think that was a bit unnecessary, especially as this is a site with many vulnerable people viewing it every day. I think they were just trying to make the point that others recognise this feeling too, and that’s a legit point to make. We have a duty to be nice to everyone, and even more so those who are feeling vulnerable!
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve felt like this. Thank you for expressing it so well…
This is really good!
I’m less alone reading this comic than I am having dinner with my parents.
