Nobody actually reads blogs anyway, do they?

Firstly, there are about a thousand million billion blogs out there. What are the chances that anyone is going to find this one? And, even if they did find it, it's not like there is anything useful or informative or entertaining here (like most, if not all blogs).

So why bother? It's like some girly diary. And if you're reading this, you're snooping. Get out of my room.

So... sleepy...

While the pills have me feeling better generally and getting more sleep, I'm still exhausted. Just so, so tired.


Supposed to be working but all I can get the energy to do is browse the internet looking for info on new games.

The worst thing you can say to someone with depression

This doesn't help. Ever. Seriously.


Depression is a condition. Look it up. Read about it. It's pretty serious stuff. Just because you feel down does not mean you have depression.

New prescription day

The one month checkup of a new batch of medication. The usual questions. "Feeling better in yourself?", "Any side effects?"

Yes, actually. I'm itchy. Although I'm prone to itchiness I think. I once scratched a layer of skin off my foot. Kind of disgusting, eh? I don't ever seem to get rashes or anything (I'm not some mange-ridden disaster zone). Just itchy sometimes.

Must... scratch... knee...

Animators are funny!

Ah, the tears of a clown.

You'll find people living with depression in all walks of life. Isn't it amazing how many times we find out entertainers are ridden with it though? Almost every time a comedian dies, it comes out that they suffered most of their lives with depression.

Does the pressure to entertain eat away at us?

Or is entertaining a way of dealing with it?

Like the chicken and egg thing, except that has an easy answer (the egg). The good thing about being in animation is that you get to sit at a desk for hours on end on your own. This means that you just have to get the 'funny' and 'joy of life' onto the page. You don't have to live it. Which is good because most animators aren't funny. And usually those who are most convinced they are funny are the least funny.

If you cross your eyes when someone takes a picture, I mean you.

What's my Medicated Cartoon Life?

Mostly a blog that nobody will ever find. What you'll find here is some of the truth as I see it. So who am I?

I'm an animator. I draw "funny" cartoons. I have depression. I am medicated.

That's my life.

Want to see nice pictures? Surf porn. Want to learn some dirty animation secrets? Well, you may just find one or two here if I ever post. Want to know a little about depression and how people deal with it beyond what you've seen in Sideways? Well, you'll probably find a good bit about that here.

Again, that's if I ever post.
