(Crystal: A Comic on the Mind) chp.1 Page 7 by MeltingCORE-NEO (Crystal: A Comic on the Mind) chp.1 Page 7 by MeltingCORE-NEO
I am Emily and I have Schizophrenia. Crystal is a story that explains what being Schizophrenic is really like. I started writing this story in 2008 but became ashamed. I’ve started writing it again because of my friend’s song Calalini and encouragement from my boyfriend. I want other Schizophrenics to know that they’re not alone. I want people who don’t have Schizophrenia to understand that it’s there even though they can’t see it. I also want them to know that it’s very possible to have Schizophrenia and live a fairly normal life. I’m here to raise awareness for Schizophrenia.

[chp.1 Page 7]

Crystal: "I can see them, touch them, hear them. Doesn't that mean the doctors are wrong?"

I see this piece as having a conversation with one's self - "I can see them, touch them, hear them" - "Does that mean the doctors are wrong?" - "Yes."

Also, I think that the lightning-strike symbols (they look like lightning and also sidewalk cracks) are very well-displayed as a reoccurring theme in these pieces and it sort of joins the comic together.

Very dark and evocative.

I can see where you'd get that from. It is a conversation with the self until it gets to the "yes"/"no" part. No is the self saying the doctors are right. Yes is the voices saying the doctors are wrong.

That is what I was going for, I wanted something to bring the visuals together, so I used something that I hallucinate often which is cracks everywhere.

Thank you for your comment! <3

You're welcome. And I can see that about the "yes/no" part. 

The visuals work really good in this piece. Keep up the good work.
