Important: Depression / Portfolio: Neurocolor

I've been struggling with depression for the past few years (having only been diagnosed within the last two). I'm a pansy that couldn't work up the nerve to commit to suicide, instead opting to wallow in my own misery.

That was unhealthy, to say the least.

If you're depressed or anxious or otherwise unwell, my heart goes out to you. Some people claim that there's no such thing as depression, and typically they're folks who've never suffered from what is largely a maverick of an issue.

There aren't many physically apparent symptoms of depression- slightly elevated cortisol and issues with serotonin and dopamine are the closest we can come to a physical diagnosis given what science has at the moment.

My therapist recommended that I create some sort of positive, constructive outlet for all the tumult in my psyche. ] is the result. It's a story, of sorts, from the first person and multiple people. It takes place in a world drastically different from ours, and places a particular emphasis on detail and color.

I'm told it's poetic, and I guess it is, in some ways. I post to it sporadically, but a follow on tumblr or the RSS feed would probably keep you in the loop.

The story starts with the first post to the tumblr. The content is largely unedited and is what comes to mind when I ask my id for the story.

Make of it what you will.


  1. You're tumblr is now in my reader.

  2. I hope this was the outlet that prevents the dark clouds from returning, my friend. I am checking out the link now...
