I added a new reward tier on my patreon.

It’s 5$ and it gives you access to all the drawings from the other reward tiers and to a new series of drawings centered around the phrases “It will be okay.” and “I’m going to be okay.” If you need some reasons to believe that things might work out, these drawings are there for that.

[Drawing of flowers with a caption that says “It’s unfair to be told you’re using your illness as an excuse not to try when you try so hard all the time. I see you. I know how hard you work and how much you’ve survived. You have every reason to be proud of yourself.”]

[Drawing of a mouse walking on snow with a caption that says “I’m always trying to figure out a million things at once, but there is so much time to find answers. I don’t have to figure it all out today. I don’t have to figure it all out this year. I don’t have to figure it all out by a certain age. I have my entire life to learn and to grow.”]

[Drawing of a mouse holding a to-go coffee and walking in the snow with a caption that says “Yes, the people telling me I’m going to be okay are trying to make me feel better, but that doesn’t mean they’re wrong. Plenty of people end up okay and happy. I can be one of them.”]

[Drawing of a mouse standing on snow while more snow falls in the sky with a caption that says “I woke up and it was snowing. I’ve decided it means I’m going to be okay. It doesn’t actually mean that, but I need a reason to believe I will be okay, so I’m giving myself one. The snow is beautiful. I’m going to be okay.”]
