i have been there, yes if you don’t keep your mind busy as long as possible, it will drift into the depression zone again …

Wow. The same phenomenon/symptom happens with ADHD but for a completely different reason.

Gotta keep the demons occupied to keep them from taking over.

Been there, but depression learns how to adapt and coexist with anxiety, so it’s just matter of time before the work and business become just as dark as the downtime….
I have a question. Will this comic ever end? I’m asking because this has been going for almost a decade (I started watching these in 2014! I’m thankfull for helping me identifying the warning signs in myself and others) but nothing has changed. The same characters showing no improvement or almost none. When characters’s arks end it’s usually with death! Even the girl who left her boyfriend sank right back in!
I eventually had to stop seeing these because it made me almost believe there was no escape. I’m much better (therapy and medication will do that to you!) so I decided to see what happend to these. Since severals years went by I even assumed they were over. But now I see that these characters I grew to love are still stuck in the endless loop and any spark of light seems like it’s shuffled by the end of the strip or the next one… So I’m asking if any of them will get a happy ending, and when?
The thing about depression comix is that it’s not a character driven comic as it is a thematically driven comic where the theme is strictly about depression and related illnesses. There isn’t really intended to be any character development in the strip — for a long time most of the characters were nameless for this reason. Because I love the characters so much and I wanted to draw their stories outside of the theme of depression, I drew comics on my main page at http://www.claycomix.com about them. I’ve done two so far, “A Strawberry Memory” and “Later That Night” and plan to do more. But as for depression comix, the main character is really depression itself and how it negatively impacts the lives of the people who fall under it.
I swear this is one of the biggest reasons I did so well through law school. There was always a million things to keep me busy. But boy was there a huge crash at the end of every semester when I had a week off and couldn’t get out of bed.
I wish I could enter this zone
