Stuck in the Emotion

Let me preface this post with the “I’m not a doctor” disclaimer. Because, seriously, I’m not a doctor. I’m more of a theorist. I love to think about the mechanics behind things to arrive at the right solution for a problem. Some people call it high instincts, but I think it’s more like paying attention. One of the key enlightenings I’ve had in learning to…

Float Podcast Interviews

With the Float Kickstarter launching in a few days on May 1 at 10 AM EST, I’ve started making the rounds for some podcast interviews. I found both of these interviews lovely to do. It was unique for me to speak about my anxiety and my comic book work. I’ve never brought up my battle with anxiety before in an interview so this book has…

A little share goes a long way

This is one tough world. People aren’t the most accepting about stuff like anxiety, depression or other mental illnesses. Because these manifest on the inside, they’re intangible. The truth is, it’s hard to understand stuff that isn’t visible or always obvious. And what we don’t understand, we have a hard time accepting. But, the more we talk about anxiety and other mental illnesses, the more we share our…

Anxiety Attack Position

Today’s Float comic page discusses the anxiety attacks I suffer during flights. Just this past Wednesday I took a plane to Florida to visit friends and family. Once again, I suffered from a series of anxiety attacks. It was only a 2 hour flight and the attacks made it feel like it was endless. I was locked into a position similar to the one I…

Side Effects

David’s anxiety steps up to provide excuses as to why David should turn down the new experimental treatment proposed by his doctor. The top panel illustrates just a few of the symptoms I experience regularly. Have you experienced these symptoms too? Let me know in the comments.

A Retreat

David’s doctor offers him a unique opportunity to experience an experimental for his anxiety. Will David’s anxiety allow him to accept? Find out next Monday in a new episode of Float.

Choices

David feels like his choices aren’t his own. It’s more of Anxiety’s responsibility. Anxiety has led him down a sad path of regret and ruin. As his doctor goes over the wreckage David’s left behind, David grows smaller and smaller. He’s overwhelmed by his regrets and his pain.
