Happy to see that she's back

Yup.

Yay!

That was a really good read.  She's talented.

It's like a cartoon by The Oatmeal, but more poorly drawn. All the enjoyability, not as much of the graphic design background. Good for her.

Sheesh, she REALLY needs to get laid.

Who is this person? A Farker? Would explain the unjustified comments praising her work

Yeah I wanted to put it down but I thought she was a Fark Goddess or something and I would be flamed.
But yeah, after reading it (well the most I could read before I hit the eject button) I was just sort of like this:

Jesus that just goes on for f*cking ever.
 
2013-05-09 06:35:36 PM
Woo! My first green. :D

This is one of her heavier pieces but most of her other posts are absolutely hilarious. Much advised.

Honestly I don't care if she's "back" or not, just that she is okay. She disappeared fairly abruptly when she became depressed.

I was in a decent mood until I started reading that....comic? Whatever it is. Everything about the page is just freaking creepy to me.
 
2013-05-09 06:43:21 PM
This is... remarkably similar to my own life right now, except that the "fine, I'll go to a doctor if you stop making that noise" phase sort of looped into "I've gone to 10 doctors, but I can't pay for any of the medication I'm supposed to be perscribed and I can't pay for therapy, so now what?"

Of course, the fact that repeated doctor visits didn't help is just proof that I wasn't really trying, which is okay, because obviously if I'm not trying I don't want to get better and I deserve whatever happens to me.

I think that covers it quite nicely.

I noticed Boyfriend is not mentioned at all on this post nor the previous depression one.

I gotta say the previous post about depression and this one hit too close to home. Glad she's back tho

I LOVE THIS ALOT
 
2013-05-09 06:46:52 PM

Bathia_Mapes: Yay!


Yippee!  I've been checking her page occasionally for the past year.  The utter lack of updates was making ME depressed.  Allie is 10 kinds of awesome.
 
2013-05-09 06:47:24 PM
I'd forgotten how heavy her writing could be.

I'm glad she's alive, and I hope she finds a way through. She's got a gift with words I'd rather see used for good.

Posted this to my Facebook this morning.

So disturbing/funny/accurate.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Who is this person? A Farker? Would explain the unjustified comments praising her work


The answers to your questions are in the archives of her past posts on her website.  She used to regularly post insanely funny things with poorly drawn (but brilliantly done) MSPaint pics for emphasis.  About two years ago, her posts started to slow down.  About a year and a half ago, she fell off the face of the internet.  There was one post to alert folks she was battling with major depression, and one appearance on Reddit, but otherwise silence.  Before she disappeared she was widely read by many farkers, and many of her blog posts got their own threads here.   Plus, she's not ugly.  At all.  Which caused many of the guys to drool over her.

So, with that context, I really hope she gets better.   If she starts posting again, it'll be an incidental benefit.
 
2013-05-09 06:47:46 PM
I'm surprised at how modern medicine has missed what is so clear to the WebMDs here in this thread. Namely, that depression can be fixed by a good deep dicking.

Fark never ceases to amaze me.

Wow, where was that single piece of corn when the variety of pills I was prescribed really made me lose my mind and attempt suicide (or worse) on six separate occasions?

Well, that's what a lot of people are living through.

Are you just gonna ignore them because you feel creeped out about it?

I was literally just thinking about her, and worrying if she was ok before I refreshed Fark just now.

Today is officially a good day.
 
2013-05-09 06:52:27 PM
The corn isn't always good.

I'm just saying ... been there. My "corn" moment was when I realized I had completely snapped and needed professional supervision.

Corn moments are milestones... sometimes good, sometines bad. Always traumatic.

Wow, a lot of dicks in this thread to add to my Ignore list.


Yeah I know. "Welcome to Fark."

Seeing a new Hyperbole and a Half post made my day
 
2013-05-09 06:54:55 PM
//Super happy (see what I did there) that she is back. Those two posts are one of the best descriptors of what's it like I have ever read

///Well, that and Melancholia
 
2013-05-09 06:55:07 PM
Dude on Couch and I are SO happy to see her post again - nice to know she's alive and actively blogging. Plus, while I realize her 2 depression posts might be a bit hard to read, they portray it very well (both humorously and accurately) and in an odd way inspire me....  Maybe I'll find my own "dehydrated corn under the fridge" soon  :)

Yes. And yes.

Great story.

By the way, can someone tell me who "she" is? I guess I missed something.
 
2013-05-09 06:58:47 PM
I approve of this comic. Glad she's doing better.

My "corn moment" involved a melted action figure in a Detroit FreePress mailbox.

Recently. I have a long way to go. I still can't feel sad or guilt or happy. I haven't been able to have sex for pleasure in 5 years (I'm in my late-mid-twenties, so it's a problem...haven't even dated anyone in 2 years because I don't want to mislead anyone).

Hey, been there, probably headed back again soon. I can feel the lack of connection to other people building inside me like a bad pimple inside my nose, just out of reach and vaugely uncomfortable. If you want to talk to someone about it I think EIP. Go ahead and post on here if it isn't we could chat somehow.

That was a really accurate portrayal of depression.

I have found that thankfulness, even if forced upon yourself, can be really useful. YMMV.
