Frozen Hands. No. That’s not the name of my next band. It’s what I have. But not right now.
What I want to say you is this, “You have no idea how you have helped me and my wife through the last 48hrs.”
As we embarked on an unexpected 600 mile trip my wife said, ” We need some Jenny Lawson! That’s what!”
When we returned to our home, after laughter, sadness, happiness and peace, I laid in the hammock in our back yard.
Contemplative, I swayed suspended in some sort of paranoid bliss and considered your thoughts and insight.
I have no idea why, but for some reason I have named this drawing: Frozen Hands.
Jenny, I am currently reading your first book while I am experiencing my first time being in-patient for severe anxiety and depression. Your book has brightened my day and helped me remember how good it feels to laugh. I have been avoiding going online in the last 6 days I have been here but for some reason I just felt that I needed to go online to your blog. Now I know why, your drawings and their text spoke to me. I am so thankful that you shared these with us! I am hoping that I will be able to have the nurses print them out for me so I can color them to assist in my self-acceptance and healing process. Most of all, thank you for sharing your struggles with us. It is comforting to know that I am not along and I am in fabulous company in my struggles with anxiety and depression!
This is beautiful!
