Client: Why would I hire another designer when I could just get you to do it for free?

Me: … I wasn’t planning to work for free.

Client: I meant that I’d get you to do this work in addition to the work I’m already paying you for.

Me: I’d have to charge if the scope of the project gets bigger.

Client: You can’t just spring something like that on me.

But Scarlett Johansson and Kate Winslet gladly accepted the offer of Vanity Fair and show your “real” person in the latest edition .

Stylists decided to make the whole emphasis on face actresses Scarlett therefore put on a simple gray knitted sweater , and Kate - black . The only decoration steel chains with miniature pendants .

Holy crap, it’s almost as if they look like normal people!

This is pretty swell. I really like it when comics as a medium are used to explain concepts, especially abstract concepts that not everybody can easily relate to. People usually find them delightful, which is a response that means people are engaged - and so you can use comics to subvert ideas and opinions in very clever ways, and of course to educate. In this case, the author has used some really adorable comics to explain different kinds of anxiety along the anxiety spectrum. Cool!

A few things need to be amended though:

In the case of generalized anxiety it’s possible to have pervasive symptoms of continual anxiety while the inner monologue and worry can cease for short or long periods of time. That is to say, you can still feel anxiety all the time, every day, without having an internal monologue for it. It’s really crap, because then you spend a lot of time trying to ‘rationalize’ and explain to yourself why you are feeling that way, when really there is no reason. The reason is because that is just what your body does. But your brain.. it wants to very much to explain it. It’s kind of the only thing you get to even try to have control over, but it’s a farce - you can’t explain away something that has no cause other than finicky biology. It just is what it is. Imagine having your fight or flight response on at least a little bit all of the time. That feeling you get when nervous for a test? Imagine that never leaving. Maybe it leaves for brief periods, but it’s never far away - and when you add more stress to it - like perhaps an actual impending exam! - it gets even worse.

The OCD example ignores a significant part of the OCD spectrum - namely those who experience obsessions without compulsions. For example, someone in the OCD spectrum might experience invasive, reoccurring thoughts but not take any actions to feel resolved and safe. They cannot simply divert their attention or distract themselves, which is a problem because often the thoughts can be of a distressing nature. Imagine being fixated on the idea of everyone you’ve ever known or loved suddenly dying in a bus crash, and imagine not being able to stop playing that thought out in your head. For hours.

They knocked panic disorder out of the park though.

Friendly amendment from a recently disclosed anxious person who experiences many of the things explained in these comics. Much love to the creator.
