A month after Andy Dick was arrested on drug and sexual battery charges, he’s telling pals he’s soldiering on.

“Andy Dick is going thru it!” the 42-year-old comedian wrote in a private message sent to his MySpace friends Saturday.

Dick said that his mood was subdued. “Bummed,” he wrote, posting a blue frowning face emoticon next to the message.

Dick has been out of the spotlight since his early-morning arrest July 16 outside a California restaurant on drug possession (including marijuana and Xanax) and allegedly groping a 17-year-old girl.

Meanwhile, Dick’s MySpace friends have taken to his Web site comment board to support the star – and urge him to clean up his act.

One wrote, “I love you Andy I wish you a speedy getting-back-on-your-feet type deal.” Another fan posted: “Don’t hurt yourself anymore. I want my role model back!”
