  1. This has been on my mind a lot lately as I sort out mental health stuff and try to perform well at my job, when my actual goals each day are like “leave house, stay alive, come home.” It feels hard to justify the limitations as a real thing impeding my ability to do things.

    Thanks for the comic, sending you lots of positive vibes for achieving obtainable goals.

    • Horrible admission: I hate going to libraries they freak me out… too quiet? and the only time I spent a significant amount of time in the library were all the times I went to read this amaaaaaazing book about tattooed women that I couldn’t afford even on Amazon at the time. I later found out that “losing” a book you take out required like a 50 dollar restocking fee, so I eventually took it and paid the fine and now I NEVER GO TO THE LIBRARY.

      All of this having little to do with the fact that I’m very proud of you! Just sitting there can be a struggle. I’m glad you’re using your time wisely by autostraddling. You know what’s up! I give you an A+.
