Update: New Comic on the Symptoms of Stress for The Lily

"Many of us learn to be tough and resilient under stress, which serves us well in our daily lives. The only catch is that these “superpowers” can become weaknesses if we rely on them too much...Compartmentalizing and suffering through emotional discomfort can have mental and physical costs over time. Changing old habits is not easy, but I am learning to sit with difficult emotions longer and to listen harder to what they are trying to tell me."

Shy With Dogs

These are based on real dogs at the climbing gym I go to and drawn from memory. I think I do this with people too. I'm social, but I have a very careful approach.

Self-Care Swim

New journal comic about the relief that comes after swimming. Personally significant because I just learned to swim this summer. (See my comic for The Lily earlier this year.)
