I’m Going to Cry My Way to Mental Health

Or drown trying

Believe me, I’d love to end this comic with a glory story of sanguine success, but it’s a work in progress. I’ll keep you posted.

What I know so far is that the most painful part of the cycle is when the tears are building up, and I am unknowingly tensing up to hold them at bay. Anxiety has long struck me as the flip side of grief. It’s the side that takes the greater toll on me. The release of the tears is the good part.

Still, I look forward to needing the release less, or at least resisting it less. Though, maybe that’s two ways of saying the same thing.
