I don’t like sleeping, because when I wake up, I have another day to live. Sometimes I wish to close my eyes and never wake up.

On nights like this, sleep is what I want most. I can’t feel like this while I’m sleeping.

This is exactly how I feel these days. I’m trapped in misery and no one around me gives a shit.

Few things resonate with me as strongly as this comic

Oh. Most people don’t have thoughts like that?

Yep, this was last night and really, most every night. Working on the fine details of The Plan.

Hard depression is when you feel like that even with light and people around you. Nights are worst but everyday all the day is like that.

Oh no… shove The Plan over, they’re taking too much room on the bed. I have to listen to music at night. It helps.

When you’re drained and tired but absolutely terrified of going to sleep.

Sometimes when I felt this way I would go to the deepest place I could find and imagine my blood spattered all over the walls and floor. A few times I fell asleep and had nightmares in which I had killed myself but the depression didn’t go away, and I was left depressed and powerless forever.
Every day now I am glad I didn’t go beyond ideation. It’s like I’m living on borrowed time. When you’re depressed life doesn’t feel worth living, but if nothing else you owe it to your future self to live long enough to find a way to overcome it.

I’m lucky enough to have the meds that make sleeping sweet release. If I couldn’t flee into my 11 hours of drugged sleep every night I’d fall to pieces…………….

Yeah. My thoughts are worst when I’m fatigued. On good days, I’ll start thinking about it and go “Oh, must be time for bed!”
The good days, I’ll wake up not thinking about it.
On bad days, I wake up disappointed I live. And I start the day tired. So the thoughts come sooner.

There was a message that was inappropriate. The message has been deleted and the writer banned. Under NO circumstances is it acceptable to tell someone to kill themselves.

I’m not sure why, but that comment is still visible. I’m looking at the page on mobile, if that matters.

My opinion is what your saying is 100% true
Life is pain
If you want to find some thing to be thankful for , be thankful for that thing . Appreciate that one thing
… if you want ❤️

“….nothing to counter the argument depression makes when it has my full undivided attention”
I have struggled with depression my entire life and recently became pregnant with my second child. I’ve kept the darkness at bay for the most part the past 5 years but the hormonal changes and stressors that come along with creating life seems to have invited it back.
Tonight I happened to stumble across your comics online purely by chance. This was the first time I have read something that felt like it took the words right out of my mouth. Thank you for creating and thank you for sharing your comics. They diverted my attention for a brief moment and I feel like tonight’s darkness is a bit more manageable now.

Thank you for the kind words, Marissa. I hope there are brighter days ahead.
