I finally read through this one! A bit all over the place, but that makes sense being that it‘s a book about anxiety. Great relay of information about how people with anxiety feel in even the ‘simplest‘ of situations.

My anxiety has been through the roof lately. It‘s super high and every day feels like a marathon. I really appreciate @JoScho sending me this book! I spend a lot of time in my head thinking about what a trash human I am and feeling like crap—recounting every single thing I‘ve done wrong in my life, but these doodles are pulling me back out.

“Anxiety, by its very nature, is irrational.” (page 97)

JoScho Hang in there. Anxiety is an ugly bitch. I woke up Monday just eaten up with it. No good reason but no talking myself out of it. Sending you love 🖤 1w
That-Bookish-Hiker I spend A LOT of time in my head too. The only time I am not is when I am reading which is why my “books read” number is high. Otherwise my brain will take me to something I did 15 years ago and something that happened the day before. I‘m sorry you are dealing with this. 1w
Soubhiville I hope you feel better soon. Your blanket looks so comfy! 1w

wanderinglynn I‘m in my head a lot too. Worrying about what to say, or if I should say anything, typing, then retyping, then erasing everything & hating myself for being such an idiot. Then telling myself that I‘m not and starting all over. Anxiety lies. Don‘t listen to it. You are awesome. ❤️💜 1w

Yes. All the yes. I‘ve already put on the “keep fucking going” bracelet, pinned the “Living the Hoodie Life” pin to myself and slipped on these adorable “snailed it” socks!

I‘ve been introverting all day and I love it.

Thank you, @JoScho !!! I‘ve got so much love for you, girl! 💖

AmberWB I bought myself a cuff bracelet last school year that says (in tiny letters, because my kids can read 😁) “unfuckwithable”. It has truly kept me going some days! 2w

I'm loving this book about anxiety so far. I really identify with it. This panel sums up my first experience with first experience with IRL book club. I just joined a new one, I'm hoping my anxiety doesn't do the same thing to me and ruin it for me ☹️. #anxiety #socialanxiety #anxietysucks

Great graphic novel illustrating how the author feels and manages her anxiety. This will certainly help you feel less alone in your anxiety, or help you to recognize and support someone with anxiety.

My anxiety levels don't reach as high as hers, but I'm close to people who have similar problems in this area. It was nice to be able to relate a little and a great insight into the struggles of living with anxiety.

I think Marzi said really well what a lot of people are feeling right now. The world is a cruel and scary place. Find the people you love, and the ones that help you feel safe 💖

I‘m grateful that Litsy is a safe place for so many people.

Today is basically a Monday over here. We were, thankfully, off yesterday. I woke up this morning and immediately had a panic attack, so things are starting out FUN this morning.

I think I need to buy Marzi‘s newest book “Kind of Coping: An Illustrated Look at Life with Anxiety”

She gets it.

JacqMac I feel this today. Why does anxiety always hate Monday? Be brave! You‘ve got this! 💕 9mo
ravenlee I have always hated long weekends - because the same amount of stuff needs to be done in a shorter span of time, so it‘s a breeding ground for stress and anxiety. And it‘s not any better now that I‘m a SAHM, because having the husband around an extra day really throws the routine into a tailspin for my daughter and me. 9mo

I love this book so far, but some parts are getting to me. I‘m such an addicted fan girl on Instagram though! #introvertdoodles

hermyknee Getting to you in a bad way?! I‘m interested because this one doesn‘t look as light hearted as her previous book. 10mo
saguarosally @hermyknee It makes me kind of anxious. Not very, but I‘m going slowly and carefully. It‘s still an adorable book. 10mo

There was a lot I identified with and some I didn't, but overall I really enjoyed Marzi's illustrated look at life with anxiety. I recommend, especially if you've liked her previous introvert doodles!

Okay you guys! Marzi, author and illustrator of Introvert Doodles is creating a second book! We can be in it! Go to her Instagram page and check out her #giveaway post! If you deal with anxiety, then you know how much our friends can help us (when they understand). She wants to know how your friends help you cope. It‘s pretty cool and I wanted to share it with you guys.
