Julia Davis says
This is kinda how I felt when I got the news my grandma died. I just went really numb for a while.
Jonathan Hamrick says
And then you hate yourself for not being sad enough, because it must mean you don’t care enough.
Iain Sutherland says
Wow, is that “baseline” bit completely spot on.

My grandma died Yesterday, this comic, could not be truer, right now.
Keep up the great work.
Jessica de Bruin says
Regardless of how you’re feeling, I’m sorry for your loss.
depression comix says
I’m truly sorry to hear about your loss. Please take care of yourself.
Sean Hantz says
My emotional scale goes from zero to negative ten. A good day is when I can stay at zero and feel nothing. Anything above that is a reason to celebrate because it comes along so rarely.

I am lucky that i have all 4 grandparents still (although with their age I doubt that will last long) I have lost my great grandma though and I was very close to her growing up and fairly close to her even beyond that. When she died I thought i would have liked to say bye but I didn’t even cry. I think that was when I first knew that it wasn’t just that I was picked on (I was still in highschool and a target) it was that there was something wrong with me.
Opus the Poet says
This is my situation for both my parents dying.
Haley Setner says
My friend’s dad just died, and this captures exactly how I feel. When everyone describes how sad they are, and how they can barely go about their lives, get out of bed or feel okay since he passed away, I just stay quiet, since that’s how I’ve felt for years.
oh like when my grandpa died, I was in a numb state so it didn’t hit me, even so I felt bad for not feeling bad
Pamela J. Betz-Baron says
This is exactly what I felt like when my grandpa died too.
I’ve felt sad for shallow reasons but surely his death should have affected me, right?
Apparently, I was too depressed to feel anything. I felt even more guilty because of this. I could not mourn nor pay him proper respects.
I was just too numb to feel anything. I was sad to begin with. Sad doesn’t even compare. I was depressed.
I was like that about 5 years ago, when my Grandmother died (the last one and the only one that was close to my heart). Back then I didn’t understand it. Now I do, thank you!
Gideon Chang says
Such a hurtful accuracy.

Timing on this one…. …. …. My grandmother passed on Feb. 19th. I saw this the day before her wake. and it somehow seemed to hit the truth…
Couldn’t say it better. When “sad” becomes your baseline all you can feel is various degrees of numb. http://t.co/Cd2JpXsXMp

Hannah, this si kind of what we were talking about with the numb stuff.
Hannah Adell Bielicki says
This is exactly how I feel about everything. When Bill died it was just like…ok. I better go get some black clothes and take off that night of work for the funeral and wake. But I was just numb.
