This is a change of pace from our normal episodes. It’s just me, your host, musing about my own personal thoughts and experiences. It may crash and burn as an episode, but my hope is that this raw look at my own life will help inspire others to seek the help that I eventually found, and, unfortunately, so many others never do.
This past week, a young sophomore from my Alma Mater, Ball State University, was found dead in his dorm room, after tragically taking his own life. His last tweet, and the story of his passing, inspired me to reflect on this podcast and my own life experiences with mental illness and my own personal story with suicide.
If you enjoy the podcast, I’d love it if you’d subscribe and review the show. You can find us on iTunes, Google Play and Stitcher. I offer my sincerest gratitude to all of you, not only for listening to this episode, but for supporting the podcast since the beginning. The conversations I’ve had with people since starting it have been humbling, and I can only hope that what we’ve started here together can carry us, all of us, into a future where this podcast is no longer needed. Until then, I’ll do my best to always keep hitting record.
