A Mental Health Day

In work speak, sometimes people take a “mental health day,” meaning they aren’t coming into work because of their mental health.  In my old life that meant I just wasn’t feeling work that day; maybe I preferred to play video games instead.  But sometimes it means something more serious than that.

You may have noticed that we did not update the past two weeks.  I don’t want to get into deep specifics or anything, but Our Mad Life needs to take a hiatus for the time being.  Robin has been feeling unstable and needs some time to get her focus back in order to give Our Mad Life the attention it deserves.  We don’t know how long this will be, hopefully sooner rather than later.

I want to emphasize that this project is not over; indeed, we wrote a strip just tonight, there are several that have been drawn but not finished and several more written but not drawn.  OML is important to both of us, individually and to our relationship.  However, like I said, we need to take a Mental Health Day.  Please send us your good wishes and thoughts, and remember to not take your mental health for granted!

    Thank you, Lenny, for keeping us updated. I’m so sorry you & Robin have to go through this, but I guess you both knew to expect this eventually. What a miserable illness.

    I am so glad she has you to support her. You truly understand.

  2. I’m sorry to hear you’ve been having a rough time! I look forward to seeing you back at it soon, and still I’d encourage you to take as much time as you need to recover. You’ve been doing a lot lately and are certainly deserving of a pause. Get some rest as best as you can now . . . I’m just glad to know you are recovering and starting to once again move forward (as hard as that can be when it happens yet again). If anyone can keep going forward, it is you.
