10 Alternative Drawings Depicting What People With Anxiety And Depression Go Through
Anxiety and depression have had no shortage of clinical analysis over the years. But despite decades of research and attention given, many people are still unaware of just how a person experiences them - in large part because those suffer from them have trouble explaining them.
Suffice it to say, it's no laughing matter...Unless of course you're British artist Gemma Correll, and can somehow make the daily pangs of anxiety and depression humorous.
Like literally, nothing.
All the things, really.
And sometimes, depression feels like a place you'll just never be able to leave.
Meh. Just, meh.
"I honestly think that humour can be a saviour at times of distress or, if you just live with a constant level of anxiety and depression like I do," Correll tells Mashable.
"I do think that people should speak more freely about anxiety," the British artist adds.
"I know that I would have felt a little better as an anxiety-ridden teenager if I knew that I wasn't completely alone in my fears."
Thankfully, we have swell folks like Gemma Correll to explain them to everyone in pretty much the most perfect of ways.
