Please don’t call the p’lice. I’m not a knife wielding murderer, honest. It’s a visual metaphor!
This is literally to most honest thing I’ve ever drawn or posted in my life, the deepest I’ve ever gone, and potentially the most self pitying I’ve ever been in public but fuck it, it needed to come out. All you cool and groovy straight guys I know, don’t think this in any way diminishes your importance to me – I’m talking about groups, that’s when I feel it most. The social structures of heterosexuality, that kind of thing. The same doesn’t apply in more structured groups either, by the way.
And if you’re at all unsure of what all this means, or want to know, I’m totally down with you leaving a comment, tweeting, FB’ing or ‘ask’ing me depending on what method of social transportation you’re using to read this 🙂
It’s been a while… There’s been furtive appearances and abortive attempts at other kinds of strips etc, but SSRI proper is back…
On the one hand, this is a great thing! I love doing it, and it’s nice to have a reason to make regular, scribbly comic strips. But on the other hand, the impetus to do it again is that the benefits of my short course of CBT last year seems to be wearing off a bit, and I’m feeling the anxiety creeping into more aspects of my life again.
So here goes – I’m waiting on an appointment for a longer (20-session) course of person centred therapy this time, without meds, hoping that it’ll suit me better, and actually help me to get to the route of my problems.
As before, I’ll update you on my progress through regular strips.
Regardless though, it’s good to be back!! 🙂
P.S. I’ll talk more about my confession in today’s strip more in the future as I explore it further, but suffice it to say for now that this is a pretty big confession for me. It explains a lot of the choices I’ve made in the past, and also the choices I’m currently making…
Suddenly Something Really Interesting is returning from its dormancy! Watch out for the new strip this weekend!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 7,400 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 12 years to get that many views.

This first year of SSRI has been amazing, thanks to everyone who’s read it! There will definitely be more posts in 2013, so keep checking, and if you have an idea for a guest post, please get in touch.
Happy New Year!
Say hello to my little friend… Hidden Fox!
