I suddenly vanished

So, I stopped drawing and posting comics unexpectedly about a month ago (probably longer, I haven't bothered checking exhaustively). And I think I owe you some explanation as to why.

I have, for about a year and a half now, been struggling with Major Depressive Disorder. That is, depression. It's been...variably intense. I did not realize it at the time, but over the summer, it was growing steadily worse until semester started.

My condition began spiraling, I met with a few doctors, and was prescribed a medication. Medication had...mixed results at first, plenty of side-effects. Trying to stay on top of school at the same time didn't leave a whole lot of energy for EV.

It's been a pretty dramatic month-and-then-some.

Now, the medication (and my condition) have stabilized, and I'm feeling better than I have in weeks (and possibly months). But it's only been like that for a few days and I don't want to pile a lot on myself only to crash under the weight when I hit the next trough.

What does this mean for EV?

I will not be resuming the regular posting schedule until I know I'm stable. But, I do feel plenty good, and I have spare time and energy, so I will be drawing strips and posting them sporadically for the next little while.

Thanks for your understanding and all the encouragement you've given me. It means a lot.

I'll see you soon, but not strictly next week.
