FINALLY. After a long, difficult labour, Gonzo 2 is now finished, and is available FREE to download. This is DRM-free, so if you download it, feel free to share it with anyone you think might be interested! And please, share this post – GC is now an intense labour of love, and I’m giving it away free in the hope of getting more readers, but they’ll only read it if they know about it!

Gonzo 2 has some male nudity in’t, so probably NSFW…

Just back from the docs and that’s me back on the Citalopram… apparently this new doc thinks I was on too low a dose last time, so I’m starting on 10mg but going up to 20mg in two weeks. Been feeling a bit better the last few days, but I’m basically in the middle of the deepest depression I’ve been in for about three or four years…

So, if there’s anyone out there I’ve ignored, if there’s anything I’ve forgotten,  emails not replied to, deadlines missed, that sort of thing, over the last three weeks, I’m sorry, but I’ll hopefully get on top of things by the end of this week. And of course, there will no doubt be some strips to follow as I start back to therapy and try this whole thing again!

So, I’m not sure how well this’ll turn out, as its my first digitally drawn post. It’s just a test, but well see. Anyway, things have been pretty damn good. Workwise I’ve got loads of exciting projects on my to-do list. And the relaxation’s been working well too. But got a constantly anxious gut, and I’ve been wondering if that’s actually me or a side effect of the pills. So, after talking it over with the therapist, I’ve decided to come off them, and see how it goes. I’m going to keep going to the sessions, and keep practising not ruminating, breathing, relaxation and the rest, and see how I get on…

 

Still playing with panel structures, so here’s a wee 4 panel strip. Which is a strange format to use for such a subtle and dense allusion…

We’re obviously talking libido here, which is something that SSRIs are known to affect. The funny thing is, when I started on the anti-Ds, my libido shot through the roof, so I was like, wey-hey! But then it kind of went again… Now it sort of comes and goes…

It’s the kind of thing that gets talked about even less, but anxiety and depression can have a terrible effect on sex drive. Libido is such a basic force that when affected can have a spiralling impact on mental health.

However, I live in hope that sorting my head out in general will have a positive result on these other areas of my life too 🙂
