leave a comment »


Panel 1
Sick Person: I’m sick and I’m scared.
Well Person: Well, remember–having a good attitude is the most important thing. Think positively and you’ll get better.

Panel 2
Sick Person: So if I’m sad or afraid or feel ike crap sometimes, then…
Well Person: …Then if you don’t recover, it will be your fault.

Panel 3
Sick Person: Well, that makes me feel even worse.
Well Person: See? You’re doing this to yourself.
Sick Person: No!
Well Person: Stop it!
Sick Person: Argh!

Panel 4
Sick Person: Okay, you know what? Screw this. My attitude isn’t my problem. My disease is my problem, and I’m treating it. I’m going to be glum and depressed and pessimistic some days, and I’m going to get better anyway.

Panel 5
Sick Person: Wait, that ended up sounding optimistic.
Well Person: I guess you suck at pessimism.
Sick Person: Maybe I’ll be better at it tomorrow.
