Okay, so I don't remember my life very well.
All the memories just mash together & I have no idea what age I was when things happened.
I think I've figured out a little mental health timeline that occurs between age 13 & my current age (23).
I was a pretty quirky child. I was weird & dramatic.
I still am weird & dramatic don't get me wrong, but something strange happened when I was 14.
I often felt sick in my stomach & I started having anxiety attacks.
I started to feel sick every day.
I started to have anxiety attacks every week.
Then I started to shut down.
I was overwhelmed by everything.
Then I got really bad.
Somewhere around this time I cut my hair.
Then I was on antidepressants
Then I didn't feel anything anymore.
I was on antidepressants for a couple of years.
Then I decided I was ready to feel things again.
A couple of years later, I started to think back on the fuzzy memory-blob of years I was depressed...
Then I started to draw cartoons about it.
The more I draw, the more I slowly understand what was happening to me.
