This is the kind of strip I always wanted to do more in which it teaches about depression symptoms rather than just watching the characters suffer. For those who are interested, you can read more about the cognitive symptoms of depression here:
Tartakovsky, M. (2013). The Cognitive Symptoms of Depression. Psych Central. Retrieved on May 23, 2014, from http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-cognitive-symptoms-of-depression/00016214
There are obviously more symptoms than I could put into the strip, I would have loved to put in an extra panel on negative thinking, which is particularly destructive for one’s confidence and motivation to do well.

[I was] swept away by Professor [Ernest] Jones’s contention that Iago was subconsciously in love with Othello and had to destroy him. Unfortunately there was not the slightest chance that Ralph [Richardson, playing Othello,] would entertain this idea. I was, however, determined. […] In a reckless moment during rehearsals I threw my arms round Ralph and kissed him full on the lips. He coolly disengaged himself from my embrace, patted me gently on the back of the neck and, more in sorrow than in anger, murmured, ‘There, there now, dear boy; good boy.’

Die gefährlichste Weltanschauung ist die Weltanschauung derer, die die Welt nie angeschaut haben.

The most dangerous worldview is the worldview of those who never looked at the world.
