“Armchair therapists” is a term I want to be more popular. People who have very little training in psychology and mental illness spouting advice that is completely and utterly unhelpful. I originally wrote this strip with very different dialogue but I didn’t like it and I scrambled a bit knowing I had a drawn strip with no usable dialogue for it. I rewrote the dialogue so that the non-depressed person is more of an asshole than he was in the first draft. For better or worse that’s the thing about a lot of depcom strips is that they are more often than not sitting around talking so it’s not that difficult to completely rewrite a strip.
