this actually happened to me a couple months ago, and holy shit did it fuck me up … I was completely out of some of my meds for weeks, and I was in too much pain (ETC) to work, and I learned all sorts of fun things about the withdrawal symptoms of my meds …
anyway, check out my Patreon and help me pay for my meds!
I wrote the script for this a few weeks ago, actually, and the phone appointment, wherein I can actually apply for disability, is tomorrow. Wish me luck.
I’ve been so frozen by overwhelm and stress and fear that I’ve been sitting on this comic for weeks, just because I couldn’t bring myself to finish it, because then I’d have to publish it, and then maybe what I’m saying in it is true, maybe I’m just done making comics … and that made me so sad.

I recently began the process of applying for disability. I’ll probably make comics about it, but it’s such a long and drawn out process that there’s really not much to say about it right now.

I cannot work full-time and maintain any kind of social/artistic life. I can barely maintain “doing necessary chores” when I’m that exhausted. I hate asking for help, but if this comic means anything to you, and it is at all possible for you, I ask that you consider supporting me via one of these options:
a monthly subscription via Patreon gets you access to early sketches and more things

Brief apologies + wtf’s been going on in my life (the condensed version*). My site already says that I update as spoons allow, so technically it’s not a big deal that I couldn’t get a comic up this week. But I was looking forward to this week’s comic, so I’m sad it has to wait a week.
Anyway, several things have conspired to delay my comic, so I thought I’d share some of it with you. Continue reading →
Just a brief introduction to the various things that make my day to day a bit harder for me. I’ll definitely talk more about all this stuff later on, especially in the context of disability and poverty …
