Anxiety and depression are two mental health disorders that many of us simply don’t get. Nick Seluk with Sarah Flanigan explain how dealing with these disorders is a daily struggle.
Sarah has been fighting depression since she was 10 years old and anxiety since she was 16. “I wish everyone knew that depression is not something that people can just ‘snap out of,'” she explains. “I mean, if I could ‘snap out of it,’ I would have by now.” Nick Seluk, who creates the amazing comics at The Awkward Yeti, heard from reader Sarah Flanigan. She shared her story of depression and anxiety with him. If it could help even one person, she said, it would be worth it. Nick turned her story into a fantastic comic that perfectly captures the reality of living with depression and anxiety.
I couldn’t agree more, and I think this comic will resonate with a lot of people.
