A personal illustration depiction a topic I've been struggling with since I was 10 and I'm sure a lot of you are too.
I just wanted to make it visual, it turned out to be somewhat therapeutic as well.

Awwwh dear... Depression is an awful illness. :(

However, I'm glad you were able to get it out like this. Drawing out what you feel and think is a very good way to help dampen the pain a bit, or at least is a therapeutic way of doing so, like you had said so in your description.

Other than that, it's a very beautiful, if haunting bit of work. I hope you're feeling better now. <3 If you need anything, just ask. Even if it's to rant. Be safe!

This is darkly beautiful, but I'm sorry you had been struggling so long. I suffer as well, it's a serious and very killing illness. I am here for you if you ever need anything sweet. 

Again, great work. and putting your feelings onto canvas really does wonders for the brain and the emotional system. Great work <3

An amazing, stunning piece, my dear!
I have a lot friends dealing with anxiety and depression and I think you captured it really well.
I'm glad to see tho, that it was sort of therapeutic for you to put it on canvas.

oh, its honestly horrible to hear youve through it for so long
but at the same time i think its good you decided to vent it out in a way thats not self-destructive. its always better to talk it out or just let it out if some form of drawing (and not only)
please know that you have all the support from others! its easier when you can bear the pain with someone else

Depression is serious. We all who have depression feel ya and know your get a hug from each of us. Talking about it, the best way to handle it. We suffee together and not alone.

I got myself depression in the age of 16 and still 10yrs later I struggle with it.

It really is! Can be pretty crippling but if you have some people to support you and help where needed, it eases the dark. :huggle:
