Description of Work
My purpose in creating this comic strip was to tell a story that depicts some of the struggles I have had with the health care system and how a patient's history can go overlooked. I suffered from chronic insomnia for over 10 years before a licensed professional counselor, someone tasked with actually listening to me, helped me to get on medication to help with sleep. My mental health, and general health, problems became much less severe and more manageable after finally sleeping regularly.
Sleep hygiene has been found to not have much success with chronic insomnia. I didn't need someone to tell me to try sleep hygiene for the 10th time; I needed sleep.
