In 2018 my mum was diagnosed with a rare, late-stage cancer. I fell into a spiral and became obsessive about my own health to a point that I stopped functioning.

In the spring of last year I began CBT and fought my health anxiety head on.

Kill The Bear is a zine bundle consisting of a 12-page A5 comic and accompanying mental health resources.

It is a personal account of the ways in which grief and stress can affect the mind and body, and the impact that CBT can have on regaining control.

It tells a funny, informative and honest story of battling with health anxiety.
