Quick personal piece of my main ladies, Tripp and Imani! I can’t say enough good things about the character designs from my coworkers here at Motiga. Every hero looks like the embodiment of what they do, and the natural diversity of cast is a point of pride.
I made a comic about what it feels like (to me) to cope with having an invisible illness and the judgements and accusations that sometimes come with invisible illnesses.
I did it in green ‘cause that’s the color of the Celiac Awareness ribbon Celiac is one of the “imaginary” “all in your head” “stupid” “hypochondriac” invisible illnesses I live with.
So here. Be nice to people in general, because it’s the right thing to do, but if you can’t at least do that then please don’t be an asshole when someone tells you that they have Lupus or Celiac or Fibromyalgia or any of the other things that we live with every day that you can’t see on the surface.
praise! this is a perfect comic for explaining what it’s like for new friends :D
This. I get sneers for having a service dog even though I’m not blind, deaf, or in a wheel chair.
This comic is so important.
Even my own boyfriend of 2 years doesn’t understand this. Just because I look fine, it doesn’t mean I’m going to remain that way. When I get dizzy and need support or a break randomly, don’t just shrug it off because “you were fine a minute ago.”
