Addressing Mental Health and Confronting Sexual Assault in Activist Communities
By Annie Anxiety
Sometimes Things Get Confusing When You’re Mentally Ill is a brief comix history of a revolutionary activist’s struggles with depression, PTSD, abuse, marriage and fatherhood, recovery and struggling to reclaim a sense of self. It’s cartoony but not light hearted. There is lots of potentially triggering stuff here. Consider yourself warned.
A 19 page, short Zine covering personal experiences with my journey through trauma, madness and romance.
I wrote this because I need to put my emotions and confusions
and madness into words, or pictures, or forms, or thoughts, or ideas or… or…
or… Anything but in my head. Because I too often times find romance difficult
due to paranoia, manic episodes or complete loss of coherency and logic. And I
am hoping that in writing this that I am able to help myself, as well as others.
Throughout history and across many cultures, there have been various phenomena that fall under the umbrella of multiplicity: the experience of more than one self in one body. Modern psychiatry has pathologized this as Multiple Personality Disorder (now Dissociative Identity Disorder) but many multiples are now coming forward as healthy, functional groups of people who don’t seek a psychiatrist to “integrate” them.
This is a collection of short essays, poems, and doodles by our group, trying to explain our experiences and how other people have treated us when they discover our multiplicity. Topics include depersonalization, human rights, gender and sexuality issues, psychiatry, alienation, and struggling to learn how to co-operate as a collective when joined at the hip.
The LGBT people with mental illness and other disabling disorders sometimes have to deal with the mental health system and still are rejected in some areas according to the type they have. This one is about the stigma we face in our day to day lives as anarchists and LGBT with different abilities and qualities. It is based on my view point as an anarchist transman with Asperger’s disorder and why I question the stigmas that occur in my life.
