My Sam and Max epic mental health headcanons (aka I am projecting):
-Has ASPD, NPD, Autism+ADHD and maybe Bipolar II or just Major Depressive Disorder. Also dyslexia
He always comes off as a fellow antisocial cuz he seems to pick and choose his morals, always tries to justify his bad actions/never takes responsibility for things, lack of remorse, poor impulse control, lack of awareness for safety of self and others, chronic boredom etc. Also he's literally referred to as a sociopath (and Steve Purcell insists he's not evil so thank you sir for not writing an "evil sociopath" character). NPD I can't say too much but he is a narc because I say so <3 But he has his narcissist moments.
Bipolar or depression I know he canonically takes meds and as someone who's probably been an undiagnosed manic-depressive for 7 years I'm going to project on him to cope xoxo Dyslexia in the bloopers for S2(?) he says "woah the dyslexia" and also mentions in 101 that he gets letters mixed up. Also he can't read so... Me too king let's get you a coloured overlay and a text to speech program. Also he seems to keep all his novels in audio form (305) which is like a huge mood as someone who can only think in vivid imagery and like take in my work in auditory-visual form. Also he seems to actually be pretty literate if his novel writing is anything to go by but I imagine he has problems writing and reading
-Has Autism+ADHD, OCD, separation anxiety
I'm gonna leave out autism+ADHD in my writings because I think most ppl in the fandom agree on this (plus I'm neither so I don't want to speak for people) but I see a lot of ppl say Sam doesn't have ADHD. But I think he does and my friend w inattentive ADHD says so too. Max has hyperactive ADHD while Sam has inattentive. Thanks moving on
OCD yes in episodes when you go in the bathroom at Bosco's he's constantly going on about how he refuses to use public restrooms (most likely because they're germy and me too buddy) and mentions that his "paws are always spotless." He also mentions about the germs on the towel rack in the bathroom too. I think he also mentions it when you go back in time to Mama Bosco and use the bathroom. He also tells Max in one of the comics I think to not touch something because he might "get germs" which is something I do a lot as someone w contamination OCD. As in I have a tendency to want control over what other people touch and do so they don't contaminate me.
(And yes, I know his office is messy, so is my room. We're not all neat-freaks. In fact most ppl w OCD are fine w mess in their "safe spaces" because they feel they have control over what mess is acceptable to them and won't hurt them. It's when other ppl invade that space or you're using shared spaces is when it becomes panic inducing.)
Separation anxiety. He is a dog (also you can actually have adult separation anxiety). Everyone has seen what he's like any time he loses Max and won't stop going on about him and how he misses him and seems to not be able to live without him. Dogs are loyal and will always be waiting for their best friend. 😭
Ohhh Yoyo you're writing too many illnesses. Well guess what I don't care. Ok Awesome thanks bye.

There is a person on this website you may have heard of before who is currently the victim of an organized bullying campaign set up by her haters to insult, mock, and torment her because she has special needs and can’t explain herself the same way everybody else does. The harassment has gotten so bad that amegaotaku has basically gone offline and won’t talk to any of her friends including her own boyfriend. This was part of a scheme concocted by her bitter ex-best friend Trashy Tasha from the Total Drama fandom where she would mass send anons to people accusing the user in question amegaotaku of being a Zionist. Then she got everyone to believe amegaotaku was responsible for sending these anons and a bunch of trolls started getting mad at her and now people won’t stop making fun of her username and sending her hate. I know we don’t know each other but is there any way you could offer some help to amegaotaku? It would mean a lot if someone could support her through all of this.
Yeah, no, this is a hoax.
One may have thought, oh, this one’s quite different than last time, but no, it’s the same hoax. Dif angle.
