depression comix #302

The fun of insomnia. Depression could have either one of two effects on your sleeping habits: either sleeping too little or sleeping too much. I focus a lot on the former because that’s my situation, and I think I should do something for the latter at some point too.

What I really hate is that with insomnia the amount of tiredness you feel has no relation to how well you sleep. And it’s an awful feeling when you’re in bed, you feel more than tired enough to sleep, and yet, sleep doesn’t come. And you just went through tired hell that day, and you know that it’s going to be on repeat until your body just allows you to get some sleep.

Soon panic starts to set in, because you know you need sleep, you’re dead tired, you’re in your bed, but you just can’t sleep. And there’s nothing you can do but watch the clock go forward towards another day where you’ll once again suffer from lack of sleep.

Although two of the panels are a redraw of panels from #298 (to which this is a direct sequel of), I really like the third one where she’s trying to put her key into the door while leaning on it. It took me a while to get it exactly right. I had a lot of days like this one.

Coffee Star is a brand name that is supposed to be a parody of Starbucks, but I’ve been getting a lot of mileage out of it lately.
