Eventually, people just stop inviting you to anything. Or talking to you at all, really.

And that is awful. And well-illustrated why on #254.

Sometimes you gotta fight it and force yourself out of the bubble.

If you gotta cancel, tell them why. Communication keeps real friendships intact.

I probably wouldn’t be expecting humor from a comic with the word “depression” in the title.

Sometimes, it would really be better to cancel. Back when I didn’t know better, I attended a party and later was told that people were subsequently talking behind my back, saying I’m ruining every party with my (really not intentionally) gloomy self. That day, a few connections were cut off – that included the person who told me that (because they didn’t do that to help me).

-nods- This really rings with me.
Alot of times I go to parties, and to try and relax i’ll start drinking….and i’ll get happy. So, I drink more….And than I remember all those horrible thoughts, and anxiety hits me so hard. Than i’ll look like an idiot and start flipping out saying “I shouldn’t be here…” And try my best to leave. But, even if I try and go to have a good time, and don’t drink. It still results the same way. -sighs-

This comic is not supposed to be funny, but realistic. Which it is.

Sorry, that line of text was supposed to be @Jonathan Lacabe. The sadface is at the situation in this strip.

My whole life described in on comic strip. A little bit sad, to be honest.

I hate this issue with depression and with my autism, where parties make me overwhelmed after a while and I just shut down. One thing that helps is not completely cancelling, but going with the expectation between all parties that you’ll duck out early. Obviously if that’s going to cause you to crash too hard it’s not much of a compromise, but I’ve found it can allow me to enjoy a party some and let people spend time with me without dragging on and making me crash.
Obviously this comic is supposed to be more ‘yeah this happens’ and not overwhelm people with advice, I just thought maybe it’d help someone. I know when I’m deep in depressionbrain things can seem all-or-nothing when there’s plenty of third options.
