I just wanted to say I really love your artwork and this comic is amazing. Thank you for creating it and giving so many of us something to relate to. I hope you're doing okay. Make sure you take care of yourself. And thank you again.

Heya, thanks very much for taking the time to write! I’m really glad you’ve related with the comic. I’m alright, thanks, things are looking up. How about you? You take care too!

Best wishes,

For what it's worth, you at least inspired me to tell my parents about *my* self-harm. They knew I was depressed and have attempted suicide in the past, so this didn't exactly surprise them. But they remained supportive. I don't want to dump my shit on you, I just wanted to let you know that you managed to reach at least one more person.

Oh my gosh, thank you SO much for sharing this! You did such a brave thing in telling your parents and it’s fantastic to hear that they’re supportive of you. I’m absolutely honoured that I’ve helped you tell them. 

Your message has come at a very interesting time actually, because when I saw my parents over the weekend I also thought about coming clean about my self-harm… but didn’t. It’s a conversation I know I’ll need to have with them one day, but just haven’t yet. 

How did you bring yourself to do it? (Anyone reading this, I’d also like to hear your experience)

Anyway, thank you very much again for sharing this with me. I’m so proud of your bravery and, again, both touched and honoured that I could help you! :)

Best wishes,

Merry Christmas, Iris. Despite being someone I don't know, you kindly offered me a hand and helped. Things would have been too different without you. Thanks for hanging around. May things keep on improving. -- Cutting Mexican

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Wishing you all every success and happiness possible in 2014.

And if success and happiness doesn’t come as fast as you’d like, we still have each other, as we did in 2013.
