OCD Awareness Week – Add to Your Lists

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) To Do list:
This is the first of 3 Mental Health Humor Cartoons ever drawn by me Chato Stewart.  One thing I admire about my peers with OCD: they always get things done! Not like us "bipolars" who start a million projects and never finish one of them.  Mind-you that is all stereotypical thinking... I'm sure a few people living with OCD have lists unchecked and a few people living with bipolar disorder have finished a thing or two.

I wish I was that good at mindfulness, to be able to just wipe away everything like clicking a delete button, then focus on nothing.  I can do it, but it's normally due to medications and I black out and sleep.

I've been obsessing about this FC2 LOGO contest. I can't get the stupid thing out of my head. Yes, I want to win, but the prize is only a $50.00 gift card at Amazon. It does not balance out all the work I put into drawing it and promoting it. Gosh, you would think it was for a huge prize the way I've been bugging my Facebook and Twitter Friends about voting for it... SORRY about that peeps!!

Armchair Diagnosis

Woman: Do you really think I have a problem?

Armchair: Oh, yes, for sure! You’re a paranoid schizophrenic, with psychotic tendencies. I’m also picking up Depression an a little OCD & BPD...

Title: Armchair Diagnosis
On a more serious note, I want to share with you an excellent blog post By Ronald Pies, M.D. entitled, The Arizona Shootings: A Recurrent American Tragedy.

The post highlights the real link between mental illness and violence in a balanced perspective. While I read it I got the idea for this cartoon.  But don't let that detract away from the seriousness of what happened in Arizona.
