In my Mental Health Humor Cartoon, I tackle psychological disorders of depression and fear of balloons in older adults. First here are the facts:
Peer Dressed like Charlie Brown: My therapist was big on ME reenacting “HIS”childhood counterpart.
Peer looks Like Captain Hook: Mine too, but you’re Lucky, MY Therapist was fixated on “HIS” peter Pan Fantasy.Caption: The not so rare Projection Therapy
This is a VERY special day. It’s not my fault if you don’t know what it is and how special it is and why you should take a second out of your shopping or work day to reflect on today’s uniqueness (no it not Projection Therapy!).
Today: December 12, 2012 will be the last time this century there will be the same digits in sequence – 12/12/12. The past 12 years we had the following sequenced dates:
The next time this will happen won’t be for another 998 years on January 1, 3001 (01/01/01)!
Now about the cartoons. There are 2 different perspectives/views in the cartoons, that of a clinician and that of a client. I wrote it that way so, it can be used in your doctor’s office or on your fridge at home.

If you are the suspicious type and believe in superstition, you may be afraid. This year there are three Fridays that fall on the 13th of the month. The number three is very significant because it signifies a completeness. One example is an algebra. You add a small number three in the top right-hand corner to make a cube. A cube is perfect and equal on all six sides.
Either good fortune or calamity is identified depending on the sign and its interpretation of many superstitions. A few common superstitions here in the Western world could be walking underneath a ladder to bring calamity or bad luck, having a black cat cross your path, spilling salt or opening up an umbrella in a building. All of it could spell doom for you.
My favorite is breaking a mirror. This one supposedly gets you bad luck for seven years. I wonder who keeps track of those 7 years?! I also wonder if you break more than one mirror, can you serve concurrent sentences? The fact is a superstition is based on ignorance and fear of the unknown. It is that type of ignorance or lack of knowledge that feeds into our fears. So, superstition is not a phobia. Instead, superstition causes us to have anxiety/phobias if we put belief in it.
