This is a rare example of a comic depicting a situation exactly as it happened with no exaggeration.

I thought it was pretty well told and ... well I didn't think it was all that melodrama. A touch? And you rounded it out at the end with a joke, so that's somethin'. You haven't lost the ability to laugh at yourself? :D

Actually it reminds me of a pretty cool story I heard on public radio the other day on a new show called Invisibilia. They were talking about thoughts and the evolution of how we think thoughts work (in psychiatric circles). It basically boils down to these three steps:

1) Freud: thoughts are all important and any thought gives us deep insight into who we are as individuals

2) Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): many thoughts, particularly the "automatic self-negative thoughts", such as "I'm not good enough" or "nobody likes me" are total BS and we should try to analyze them and see how they compare to reality because when we analyze each thought, we're able to quickly and easily dispute those BS negative thoughts and get on with having a better day. This is the "radical new idea" that resulted in CBT patients seeing improvement inside of a couple months instead of waiting many years before maybe seeing some improvement with Freudian psychology.

3) Third Wave: most of our thoughts are BS and we should all just learn to meditate and that way we can just tune-out most of our BS thoughts and focus on the ones we want to focus on, the ones that are productive.

Before listening to the story I was already familiar with 1 and 2 - that last one is new to me, so I haven't read anything more about it. It seems interesting though. It sounds like you may have tried the CBT approach, so the third-wave approach might help. I dunno, I'm not an expert, but I thought I'd mention it. :D

Nice comic btw! :D

I had to look up how to spell "roommates."

I know my problems may seem small and don't even compare with a lot of other folks out there, this is just something that goes on in my head every day and I'm trying to make sense of it. Sorry for the melodrama, I'm okay, really. Just very often frustrated.
