SE 12 Ep 13 The Struggle Is Real

In this episode I describe the struggle I am having with the primary effects of the psychiatric meds I’ve been prescribed following my mental breakdown. I also describe an interview with an intern that I’ll be airing for my first Big Idea Show this week and the struggle I am having to frame the interview within the context of the show. Finally I touch on my binary brain and how that parallels with older people’s struggle to understand the concept of the non-binary gender identity.

SE 11 Ep 22 Truth And Suicide

In this episode I explore how we as individuals arrive at personal truth and how much that can differ and contrast with other people’s truths. I bring up a number of examples of times where two people have different truths and one must pick one over the other including suicide versus living out your full life.

As someone who has been suicidal before and made a few half-hearted attempts, I explain the psychology of suicide. How logical it seems and how hard and condescending it is to listen to another truth when you are suicidal. Lastly I explore why it is that suicide is considered an abnormality in western culture

If you are feeling suicidal please be open to other truths. Call 1-800-273-8255 in The United States for help. If you are close to making an attempt dial 911!
