Thank! I would make more comics if I felt like I knew as much about anything else mental health-related. There are some things I know quite a bit about (like most anxiety disorders), but I spent several years studying dissociative disorders and talking to people who experienced them (including myself) before writing this one.

So you have a dissociative disorder? And it sounds like you spend a lot of time in the field of psychology, do you have a job in that field?

I was diagnosed with DD-NOS as a teen (the panel with the little girl looking at a flower were my 'alters' at the time). It's not really something that I deal with as much anymore. I'm not involved in the field of psychology at all, I just wanted to know as much as I could about dissociative disorders. :) Studying psychology is a weird hobby for me. I think it's always the people with the most problems to solve who are the most interested in it, haha.

Haha yeah I can understand that, forgive me if I pry but were all of your alters nice? Oh and I just can't keep this smirk off my face looking at your icon lol.

No, they weren't all nice. Some were a bit mean, some were a bit troublesome. As I've gotten older I've learned to accept all the parts of myself and it's not really something I have an issue with anymore. I think things are crazy for everyone as a teen.
