If you don’t live with anxiety and/or depression (or know someone who does), these illustrations will probably not mean a lot to you. If you, like me, do suffer from one or both, then these illustrations will hit close to home. The wording and situations nail it, IMO.
Artist Gemma Correll sums up—with some humor—what it’s like to suffer from these sometimes debilitating medical disorders.
“I honestly think that humor can be a saviour at times of distress or, if you just live with a constant level of anxiety and depression like I do,” said Correll. “I do think that people should speak more freely about anxiety,” she added. “I know that I would have felt a little better as an anxiety-ridden teenager if I knew that I wasn’t completely alone in my fears.”
