    And on a completely unrelated note, there's obviously something in my eye. *sniffle*

    it’s great when people talk about their terrible moments without coating them with sugar. thanks for such a raw story

  • emilemily January 6th, 2013 12:59 PM

    I’m not one to leave comments but this is so, so beautiful.

    It reminded me of when my high school boyfriend broke up with me and I chugged 4 glasses of white wine in a row and passed out on my grandma’s couch on easter. I thought I’d never be happy again. Obviously I eventually moved on, but it took a long time.

    Heartbreak is literally the worst thing ever.

  • mayaautumn January 6th, 2013 3:13 PM

    omg i love.
    really really love.
    so much.

  • alylee January 6th, 2013 3:28 PM

    This is perfect. The drawings are simple yet complex. The storyline is relatable, not sugarcoated. And while its sad, it doesn’t end with depression. I love it.

  • A Fox In The Snow January 6th, 2013 3:33 PM

    ‘I cried more than 7 cups of tears’ — one of the most beautiful things I have read this year.

  • Teez January 6th, 2013 3:34 PM

    i went through something quite similar, thank you for this

  • Melissa @ WildFlowerChild January 6th, 2013 3:40 PM

    This is so beautiful *sniff*
    Thankfully i have never gone through anything like this, but I hope you get better<3

  • pij_sirup January 6th, 2013 6:28 PM

    I have never felt something real like love for other people. Sure, I love my family and friends, but I have never been in love with somebody. I can see how a heartbreak can be an awful feeling but you know, I kinda want to be heartbroken because at least then I would knew I really felt something strong and sincere for someone else.

    • María Inés Gul January 7th, 2013 4:28 PM

      Oh, sweetheart! Don’t worry about it. It will come in its right time, you’ll see! Wish you lots of love and no heartbreaks!

  • myl5597 January 6th, 2013 6:36 PM

    This is really beautiful! the drawing really helps convey the raw emotion of the story.

  • Zeester January 6th, 2013 6:59 PM

  • sequoia January 6th, 2013 7:01 PM

  • rottedteeth January 6th, 2013 7:11 PM

    Aw, that was wow. I’m moved.

  • Emily January 6th, 2013 7:16 PM

    Aw man, what are you doing to my feelings?!

  • alicekazam January 6th, 2013 7:30 PM

    This is ringing true to me today… my boyfriend just told me he’s leaving for London….

  • Dane January 6th, 2013 8:44 PM

    Is someone cutting onions in here? *sniffle*

    This was so good, I went through the same thing 2 summers ago and it took me about a year to recover. But I did!

  • Jes January 6th, 2013 9:16 PM

    this is my favorite comic on rookie.

  • Mikazuki42 January 6th, 2013 9:17 PM

    Aw :(

  • Fen January 6th, 2013 9:48 PM

    This is lovely!

  • Fen January 6th, 2013 9:49 PM

    Also, are you on deviantArt? Your work looks familiar.

  • Cactus Woman January 6th, 2013 10:03 PM

    This really shouldn’t be called a “comic”. Is there such a thing as “depressic”? Or “heartbric”?

    Well, I guess now there is.

    Beautifully done. I know the feeling. </3

  • Elle January 6th, 2013 11:10 PM

    Thank you for this. I loved your art and your words. I loved your smiths line.

    • sophiethewitch January 7th, 2013 9:49 PM

      What smiths line?
      -Lame person who only just discovered the Smiths and doesn’t know most of their music (um, me).

  • Krynn January 6th, 2013 11:15 PM

    Exactly what I went through when my first serious boyfriend broke up with me. *sniffle*

  • firky January 6th, 2013 11:43 PM

    this is heartbreaking and beautiful and lovely and tragic

    I love how this is so honest- it makes you feel sad because it’s TRUE

  • lxmldrt January 7th, 2013 7:43 AM

  • mymlen January 7th, 2013 8:00 AM

    OMG THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING IVE EVER READ seriously thank you so much i loved this and i hope you are doing good. you seems like such a good person, and your art is beautiful and lovely and made me feel so much!
    lots of love

  • sophiethewitch January 7th, 2013 8:50 AM

    I love this. I’ve been in unrequited love with a girl who was never interested in me since, depending on how you look at it, either fourth grade or seventh grade. I’m in ninth grade now, and still trying to get over her.

    About the “I tried some meds” illustration… please stay away from drugs you inject. Please. I understand if you need something to cope (so do I), but injecting drugs is just so much more dangerous, and makes it so much easier to ruin your life.

    • María Inés Gul January 7th, 2013 4:23 PM

      hi! don’t worry about the drugs – I have a big fear of needles, and ofc with this one I meant something like vitamins and medical stuff not actually DRUGS. I hardly ever drink alcohol soooo dont worry! xxx

      • sophiethewitch January 7th, 2013 9:43 PM

        Oh, that’s a relief. Sorry. I just saw the mushroom and figured it was all illegal drugs. I guess that was dumb. Good luck, and I’m glad you didn’t die.

  • Nobre January 7th, 2013 10:40 AM

    Very good!

  • trixle January 7th, 2013 11:02 PM

    stahp, im crying

  • trixle January 7th, 2013 11:03 PM

    ugg ur making me cry

  • velvet jane January 9th, 2013 7:48 PM

    I love the comic!, but I think that is important to know that nothing is forever… in some point sad moments and happys moments are the same…

  • Jolala January 10th, 2013 11:57 AM

    I love this so so so much

  • Cutesycreator aka Monica May 27th, 2013 2:50 PM

    This is terribly beautiful… so raw and real… </3
