Today's page resonates a lot with me like about the whole concept of medicine making you feel like "normal" or "yourself". I still do often feel like I'm not really sure if I'd be burying myself by starting medicine or if it's like somehow my brain is already destroying "myself" and I have to use substances to save what scraps remain.
It seems like Lola's stance is that the general effect "feels better being on them" is the more tangible thing than a nebulous "self"?

this is a lovely page! something i noticed was that back on page 16, sugar mentions that she goes off her meds to be "sleep-deprived but feeling like myself again," kind of a contrast to what frankie said about how her meds make her feel 'like herself' and how lola gets the drugs to die "feeling like [herself]" on page 21.. i really like the different characters' different ideas of how they feel like themselves

Very cool comic, I'm really enjoying! I have to say though I've had a very hard time seeing what's been going on in the comic since the night scene are so dark. I guess it's kinda realistic, but I feel like I'm probably missing out on important details LOL.
Again, very interesting work, thank you for sharing it.

you might find the night scenes easier to read on the dark theme of the smackjeeves mirror:

if yall are having trouble reading these pages its probably your screen's brightness! My screen was dark and I was struggling (typically keep my monitor on the 2nd lowest-lowest setting for battery) and bumping it up a few notches makes the comic clear as water to read! And as always, this comic never ceases to amaze me, I started following around page... I want to say 42? And ive consistently checked for updates since, I cant wait to see it through til the end!
