Mental Health humor fix a flat and fix a mood how to fix depression image

Fix A Flat – Fix A Mood Beer

For Temporary Use Only

I was working with my new therapist a few weeks back when we both made jokes about fix-a-flat. The end joke was the cartoon above on how to fix-a-mood!

While many people often use alcohol and/or other illegal mood-altering drugs to self-medicate, I want to make it CLEAR that I “personally” don’t condone this type of  temporary solution. Now, I’m not a prude who says to NEVER self-medicate, since I’ve done it myself in the past and it may seem like an “easy” solution, but it really doesn’t solve anything and can make more problems in the long haul!
