DEATH is the Family

~ Less than a min read

As a person living with a serious mental disorder, you HAVE to learn to laugh and to find humor in some serious subjects in order to cope.  “It’s better to die laughing than to live each moment in fear.” ― Michael Crichton (1942-2008).   Michael Crichton knows about fear scaring the dino-doo out of us with the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park or thrilling us with the TV show ER.  Even facing death, he knew the power of laughter.

I have always dealt with death and the macabre feeling of suicidal thoughts. For many years, I felt like I wanted to die. Yet from the outside, my world may have looked well and balanced; inside, my head was a storm of self-loathing. To offset this, I’ve learned to laugh at death. When you don’t fear death, then death can’t control you or your thoughts! I guess that’s why I like to draw cartoons about it, too.

Death’s Girlfriend Tina: Sure! I’ll shake your hand… Gee, your son was so wrong! He was afraid you wouldn’t like me.
