Bag of Nerves. by taeshilh Bag of Nerves. by taeshilh
This tends to happen a lot.

I'll be sitting around and something will trigger a flashback or a memory and I'll depress myself with it because it's something I can't fix. So I'll obsess about it for a bit until I remember something else. This elephant never forgets.

Goodness I am the worst girlfriend ever.

I like how my iphone cable disappears in the last panel.

I DO THIS
Remembering something stupid or embarrassing once brings on an entire onslaught of "OGEEZ IM STUPID"
Nice to know I'm not alone in this!

*sigh* thank god I found someone who has the same habit as I do. When ever I remember something embarrassing I either bite my hand or bite my nails.
like one time I was on stage for a play and had a horrible costume failure..... I don't want to go into details but I ended up half naked in the end....... *bite*

PTSD is far more serious and hardcore than you seem to be giving it credit for. Taeshi is just a neurotic wreck. If she had PTSD, she would find herself completely debilitated by these memories, and it would cause her to be unable to function properly in work or social situations. She would have trouble sleeping etc, and all in all would be in a much worse place than she is in.

I would also consider getting yourself tested by a doctor if you feel like you may suffer from these symptoms, as it is the kind of thing that requires HEAVY psychological aid so that you can re-integrate into society. If you have not already that is.

Let the past be the past and live your present. I'm sure everything is fine and even if what you did was bad you wouldn't make the mistake again would you? Just stay happy :) and focus on the good in your life.

Me llamo la atención el titulo: Bag of Nerves

Si conozco como 1000 personas que sufren de lo mismo, y la cura es bastante sencilla.

Cura: Solo tienes que decir lo que sientes y esperar que te den unas respuesta no juzgadora, Mis amigos se sienten muy abiertos a decirme lo que se les afecte (Aun siendo muy personal) sabiendo que no los voy a gusgas ni que voy a decir nada a nadie (Juramento de confidencialidad). Creo que soy bueno con eso tal vez por eso tengo muchos amigos y la gente se siente confiada a hablarme, pero creo que eso solo funciona en vivo ya que de otra forma sienten que soy un acosando.

No, you are certainly not the worst girlfriend ever. :XD: Sharing your thoughts and experiences lets your boyfriend share some of the life you had before him..which I think is nice. I always like to hear old stories from my man. :D

By the way, this style you're doing is great. I have a "thing" for limited colors..I don't know why but it makes me really happy.

I wasn't grinding my teeth XD I was biting my nails.

But that's a really really REALLY horrible thing to do and I really wholeheartedly support you on your quest. The teeth-grinding is seriously not a beneficial thing to do.. especially if you have to do the ever-painful root canal.

ugh, I completely understand x[
I spend too much time thinking, I'll suddenly remember something I did when I was like 9 that was so embarrasing (which probably wasn't, just my over-exaggerated mind thought it was)
Lucky that it's just nail-biting and not "crawling into corner rocking back and forth" xP
Don't worry though, I think this happens to alot of people, you're not alone, and your lucky you have a caring boyfriend like Suitcase :)

I don't know, but I really like the style of this comic. It's cute and I like the brownish shade~ :3

I do that... to often.

You bite? Where? On the pointer finger's middle joint? I'm intrigued because I gnaw when deep-in-thought or embarassed/upset.

Anyway, I love your expressions here. It's really a nicely put together comic. Although in the last panel your boyfriend's (He's Suitcase on here right?) mouth looks weirdly placed... I can't seem to put it into words though, so ignore this unhelpful sentence.

Hahaha, it looks like I'm eating my hand when it was actually an exaggeration. I'm a nail-biter. I just bite and trim my nails ":-[" They're looking better lately, but there are some horror moments. But yeah, I'm the same way! Deep-in-thought/worry/being upset triggers the nibbles.

Haha, Souppy's mouth exceeds his chin XD

God you know this happens to me all the time too where I suddenly remember horrible things I did when I was younger

like the powerpoint presentation i gave in 8th grade computers class on homestar

or pretty much ANYTHING I did for Freshman Seminar god damn what a stupid class what was the point of that. That's the reason that old flash movie of Toad dancing exists. I did it for that class.

...actually that's kind of cool it's that story of the robots capturing George W. Bush that I hated because of my lazy partners who only interjected into the project to force me to do stupid things

oh man and when I used to sing at the lunch table and it scared away the two friends I had? man I loved middle school so much there were so many not suicide attempts

You're adorable though don't worry you have nothing on the painful things I've done

or maybe you do BUT WE'RE EVEN OKAY

NO BITING.

I really like the style you've got going on here, by the way! It looks a lot like something you'd find in an anthology of comics... and I think it really fits the mood of this piece. You are also having affairs with those pens of yours, I see.

You are not the worst girlfriend ever. In fact, you're probably a great girlfriend; i mean, you'd be better than i would, being a guy and all.

... Also, you're clearly outstandingly talented at drawing and have a great sense of humour, both of which i can assure you are man-magnets. I can tell, as i'm a man, and i just asked myself.
