VIDEO: DBSA Stronger Together Conference “Stand-Up for Mental Health”


A while back, well it's been almost a year, I was at the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) 2013 Conference Miami. The theme was "Stronger Together".  As the Mental Health Humor cartoonist at the conference, I got to share many of my cartoons...AND take part in my third Stand-Up for Mental Health comedy show.  The video of the the show was lost due to technical issues.  The videographer audio was not working right.

Nothing mind full in sleep like that, more like mind-void.  It's not relaxing or comforting it just...

I Am Fat: Medication or Weight-Loss?


When I posted "You Lazy Fat Slob – Fat Shaming Weightloss Makes Us Fatter",  I had just seen the fat shaming article and it inspired me to draw the cartoon for that post.  What I did not expect were the comments I got and how they would make me rethink some of my preconception and the way I look at myself (being 400 Lbs).   Even got some great advice that I wanted to share:
I am in the process of losing weight, and when I start feeling like I’m ugly or I let myself go or people think I’m fat, I try to push those thoughts from my head - GB
