Rami Markus Maunula says
I’m a depressed person in a relationship with another depressed person. This feels familiar. Thank you, Clay.
Jennifer Lydick says
Thank you for this one in particular.
Dana Wolfe says
This sums up my relationship perfectly. I apologize for that a lot……
Yaron Kaplan says
What a wonderful girlfriend. Why isn’t she with me?
R.E. Bint (@I_amTheBint) says
Thank you for all of these, but especially this one! Just shared it with my fiance. I apologize to him constantly just for being me & he reminds me every time that it’s completely unnecessary. He actually tries to understand the illness to help me unlike my ex-husband, who used my diagnosis as a weapon to control my mood & ultimately to take my daughter from me.
Tiffany Danielle Claiborne says
Soooo did you secretly turn on my microphones, orrrr…?
Jess Spindler says
Warm and fuzzy feelings all over. Thank you.
Amber Brokaw says
Warm and fuzzy feelings and a few tears. Thank you for all of this.

Whether you are male or female, straight or LGBT, you will probably see something of yourself in these comix. I’ve linked to this community from our Nottingham-based depression charity at https://www.facebook.com/supportmuted.

i think this strip is the most beautiful yet <3
Old Jack says
This is the strip that made me read this series. I’ve followed Clay’s other work before, but did not make the move until he posted this comic at the ‘other’ site. Clay, thank you for this, this strip and this while comic series. Sometimes it helps to remember one is not alone in coping.
Jennifer Brock says
I think you should index Freckles as satellite character #03 so that depressed character #02 will be less inclined to think she’s going away. “Of course our relationship is doomed – you’re not even an official character.”
I’m still working on adding the characters, it’s a slow process and I hope to have then all done soon. The depressed characters and satellite characters are numbered based on chronological appearance, so the freckled satellite character will probably be number eight or so.

I’ve just spent a good chunk of last night and part of this morning reading through every one of your comics, and I felt that I should comment on this one in particular because it speaks the most to me. My fiancé has depression, and so I can understand fully the freckled girl’s side of the situation. It can be really hard, confusing, and even frustrating when the person you love has a mental illness and you don’t quite know what to do, but I also know that just sticking around and being there for them can help loads for them, and I will always be thankful that my fiancé is still around. On the other hand, I feel like Freckles’ girlfriend is also someone I can relate to, as well as many other situations in your other comics as well. I’ve yet to be tested for depression, anxiety, etc, because the times that I do have symptoms aren’t nearly as many as the times that I don’t, and even though it seems to run through the family genes, I’m honestly just hoping that my bad days are simply that- bad days. I’m extremely thankful to you for putting out these comics and for helping me understand and see a different perspective than just my own, and know that other people feel the same way that I do. You’ve inspired me not only to learn more about depression to aid me in helping my fiancé through tough times and possibly learn more about myself as well, but also to get back into art with a purpose of not only educating people through my perspective but also to help heal those who need it through illustrations and such. Thank you and I wish you the best of luck in all aspects of your life!!

I’ve never had this kind of support and understanding in a relationship….
Very goof Sir!. Brought a tear to the eye of a numb curmudgeon like myself
Thank you for making this comic. Ian coming to terms with having depression, and it is so reassuring to know that I am not alone. Thank you so much. (I sent this to my boyfriend, who is doing a brilliant job of being the supportive girlfriend, except his boobs are less good.)
