1 - Endings and Beginnings 2 - Endings and Beginnings


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…

Be prepared….


…for something a little different.

Colin Bell (Jonbot vs Martha/Detective Spacecat/Gentleman geek) decided that instead of Nanowrimo, Novel Writing Month, he’d do Personal Comic Drawing Month, or something. I decide to join in. He probably thinks I’ve not been doing it, but he’s wrong, wrong I tells ya!!

I’m a little behind in posting them, but today you’re getting a deluge of the first three days of my PeCoDraMo strip – “In the World of the Durdleburg”.

I’ve decided to keep posting these in SSRI because, well, I hope they’re something interesting! They’ll be tagged separately though, should you wish to follow the strips individually. You might not, you know. Not after you read it.

(Oh and expect to see ‘Gizmo’ more often; it’s a contraction of ‘Garrymeaux’ and I quite like it as an alias…)
