My name is Chato Stewart, and I am nothing special, no Emmy, no Oscar nor Pulitzer. I’ll never get a prestigious Nobel Prize nor will I ever get nominated for anything life changing enough that you might care to read about me. I’m mundane, boring, and live a life out of the limelight; just like millions of others and that is fine by me.
At one point I’ve been on 17 different medications for both mental and physical health reasons. Over the years, I dramatically cut them down to 14 then to 8 meds. For the last few months, I’ve cut them down even more with some advice from my doctor.
Being on medication over 10 years, I can’t help but feel a small victory when I was about to cut one down or out altogether. My diet played a big roll in the reduction.
That is the inspiration for today’s Mental Health Humor Cartoon.
