Yes. And the other stage I go through of sitting there knowing what all too commonly waits, what I’ll have to go through when I do reach the phone or the door of the clinic. Fortunately & Finally I’ve got Docs & MSWs who don’t ask the inane & irritating questions. Who don’t ask me to rate a feeling on a 1 to 5 scale when I’m feeling 40 or I wonder ‘As compared to what, when?” Who don’t ask me for my zip code so they can insure their funding.
Excellent! Excellent art!
The worst is that Mr. Sacntimonious up there might well have gone through all this sh*t himself, but since he’s finally on meds or whatever he gets to judge everyone else who hasn’t got to where he is yet. I had a friend say something like this to me a few years back, and I told him to GFH, and he immediately became an ex-friend.
Ugh. This definitely hits close to home.
Yeah. This one definitely cuts a little deep.

I had a PSYCHIATRIST tell me this…
Mary Delmar Calamera says
Thanks for sharing that, it really hits a raw nerve there…
Daniel Taylor says
Dead on, as usual.
(I love the amount of personality you’ve given in the second panel.)
Dan Price says
I’m shocked to to see the weird hostility that people suffering from depression have to face. I had no idea.
Holy lord exactly.
How abt… Your lack of a job must not be bothering you much, if you can’t even get one. With social anxiety as the heavy weight.
Unknown Nobody says
Damn, I’ve felt it too. I admire your courage to put pen to paper and create this strip. Thank You very very much.
Related to this is the idea of not trying enough.
And my psychiatrist telling me to improve sleep and nutrition and stuff.
This after I’m telling her my ability to make myself do unpleasant stuff like eat food I don’t like has gone waaay down.
I’m very confused as to why psychiatrists don’t understand when the stuff they tell you to do is impossible for you.
Go exercise! It’ll improve your mood.
Here I’m thinking I should get a medal for getting out of bed every morning. Something I wasn’t able to do this time last year.
Soooo true….I love it when people say “you’re just not trying hard enough”…. Just want to punch them in the mouth.
Mary Downey says
Too true, so sad.
Christine Bunt says
Yeah. I once had someone say, “Just get up and do something.” Duh. Had no clue.

And for those who think that they “understand”. http://t.co/CqMpWN5eCN

Ouch. Very real. I don’t think a lot of people realize when they say this, they are FEEDING the stigma that makes it hard to get help in the first place.
This only the problem being no money and no insurance to pay for help.
