Oops, I meant to say this on the Bipolar one.   That's what happens when you leave both windows open and scrolled down.

 Nerp derp derp...

I still really love this one though.  :)

I'd suggest you do Dependant personality disorder, or PTSD next. That'd be awesome. c:

Ooh, love these new redesigns with the little blurb in the picture. Very effective. You should make a little book of these and sell it when you're finished.

You're very welcome! (and hello to you, it has been a while, I was without internet for over a month after I moved, lol)

I will be very excited when this book comes out, and I will probably buy at least two of them. One for me, and one to send to my sister. :D

This thing is amazing. I wish I had someway to kill this monster.
I know firsthand how evil they are.
Your art style is just killer.

This monster can be killed by fire or shattering them, not sure if it works in real life though.
Thanks for the comment! =)

It was fascinating, once I realy thought about it how something as metaphoricaly transparent and almost non-existant as this could genuinely cause so much damage in people's life, at best they might attack the victim in early adulhood, or they could have been there for so long and we could never see them.

The metaphor built with these borderline creatures, although difficult to grasp, is indeed a ton of truth when it comes to people who sometimes realize they have a problem that is too big and they are so deep into it that they feel like their lives are being sucked dry by their intense emotions, like leeches.

It realy comes to truth when it is said that borderline people are fragile, I've never met people like this, however I've seen examples that realy give indepth knowledge with regards to treat people carefuly, sometimes people are as fragile as glass even though they might not show it openly.

The design shown here is a very interesting perspective on the issue, Ilike how it has so much delicate features that might seem so invisible that you could never realize they are there until you broke one, when you break one it might be a tragedy. The maple leaf is the part that I realy liked because it gives the sense that you can spot it and put your finger on it once you observed the problem in detail it also represents hope of recovery for such people.

A fascinating take on that particular dissorder.

Hey you're totally welcome! :)

I always analize details like those I pointed out I like to test the understanding my mind has on such details.
Your work is particularly nutricious when it comes to this. :)

i Have  Aspergers, and when your diagnosed, its like, someone took a huge crushing, suffocating weight off you, and you know there's a reason for it, not to blame, but as years pass I transition from thinking of it as a disease or illness to something that makes me special, and i also have ADHD and i'm offended when people say , i have ADH- Oh Look a butterfly, jokes. also i'm a girl, and there's no one i can ever relate because boys are 3 times more likely to get ADHD then girls, so i'm always brought to peer rejection. I feel that when autism awareness day comes, no one ever cares, they would never think of me to be autistic, the people i have told, are Shocked and surprised i have it, and it hurts, a lot, to not be recognized and i want to see what monster you can come up with...

Hello~ o v o/

I admire your mental monsters a lot since they fit their respective disorders very well, as well as the fact that I have a lot of interest in psychology.

I've seen your works on Tumblr, and I saw your long list of mental disorders, though there is one that I would like to add since it does not seem to be on the list: Asperger's Syndrome.

Its a variant of Autism, though they have some key defining features. I often took interest in this mental disorder since I'm diagnosed with a mild case of it. Symptoms I faced that I've come to recognize now are "Restricted and repetitive interests and behavior", and social problems. I'm currently managing well after time with several counselors.

I am curious to see what a monster for Asperger's would look like through your interpretations of it, and also because there is a need for proper understanding of this condition, since many other people tend to like using Asperger's as an excuse for doing whatever they like, when in reality, from my experience, Asperger's is depressing to have when you realize you have it and when you are seeing what its doing to your life.

If drawing a monster for it can't be done, its alright, I understand~ Thank you for reading this if you did though~ o v o~
