  1. Hahahahaha ohhhh man. Thanks. I needed a laugh right now. It’s a with-you laugh, not an at-you laugh. I can relate SO hardcore.

    I have just created an awesome community building link-up for people with mental illnesses…it’s been a slow start and is causing me some depression actually…but…the theme is actually MOTHERS and mental illnesses. So THIS post would fit perfectly. And I genuinely love it..whether you add it or not I love it. But if you’re willing to help a fellow anxious mama out, here is the link:

    It could be a good thing for us MH bloggers if it actually gets going πŸ™‚ Right now it’s just a giant kick in the crotch for me lol

    PS I like the janky graphics, they are cute and I think very fitting.

      • I will keep an eye out! I look forward to them!! And thank you SO much for adding your post to the #mentalillnessblogshare…it was a really dumb idea on my part to start it on Mother’s Day weekend as I was ALREADY depressed by the holiday…I really appreciate your help in getting it started πŸ™‚

      • I don’t think it was a dumb idea. I just think a few people may be busy with other things this weekend. Some might night have blogs specific to mothering. Perhaps next time with a new topic it will gain more momentum. I find some things take a while to take of but once they do they are awesome and I think your idea is awesome πŸ™‚


    • I don’t know if it gets worse. You do learn how to manage it as time goes on though, but as with anything, there are good days and bad. Thanks for the comment!

      • My introversion got worse at college. I was thinking I have these problems already so what happens later in life when I have relationships such as these.
        Thanks. πŸ™‚

  2. Perfect! I remember trying so hard to act “normal” when around my kids and other parents with their kids. Sporting events were the worst. Sitting on the sideline while they practiced was tough, most times I sat in the car so I wouldn’t have to talk to anybody. I can honestly say that it is much easier for me to make small talk over the internet than it is with someone I should really know. You know, like my kids best friend’s mother. I have to admit that I was glad when they all graduated from high school and went about their adult lives and I didn’t have to get to know someone in order to feel comfortable enough to let them play at their house.

  3. Hahaha, that was so fun to watch/read! I think I am going to be one of those mums. I am already experiencing some of those moments when I help my mother with my sister, which makes ‘bonding’ with others that much harder because they always assume I am just a really young mum and then they leave me the ‘looks’. Or maybe that’s just me.

  4. Lol. you’re so funny! Did you just use paint on these comics? I think you’d do awesome if you can learn how to make them on Adobe Illustrator.

  5. HAHAHA! This was hilarious. The coffee + blanket + (trashy) TV is me. Except I prefer comedy shows instead of trashy TV but you get it!
