Depressions and anxiety are two of the most misunderstood mental health issues. Nick Seluk, the artist behind the Awkward Yeti comic, partnered up with Sarah Flanigan, one of his readers, to explain what it’s like to struggle with these two disorders daily.
At some point or another, we’ll all likely experience anxiety and panic attacks, as well as bouts of depression. What doesn’t help is having people say things like “Why don’t you get over it?”
“As someone who’s experienced and has been around anxiety and depression, it was easy to illustrate in a way that complemented the storyteller,” Seluk told Bored Panda. “Sometimes those who haven’t experienced the extremes don’t understand what it’s like, almost to the point of resenting it.”
