So I did the interview with the amazing Christie Stratos, where we talked about my poetry, The Suffering, The Dark Archer, and a bit on the upcoming The Shadow Cult. Most importantly, we took the time to dive further into Mental Health Awareness Month, where we discussed a bit of why it’s so important to be having these discussions, and how we need to be seeking to understand, as oppose to stigmatize, our mental health.
All too often, especially after we lose someone close to us to suicide, we find ourselves saying things like, “I never saw it coming,” or “But they seemed so happy just yesterday,” or anything in between these things. The reality of PTSD or depression or any other mental health issue is that we often don’t see it coming, where even for those of us who are suffering from it, one moment is all it can take.
Please enjoy this interview, and remember that it is important to talk about these things. Perhaps in open discussion, we can further our understanding of not just others who are dealing with such illnesses, but of ourselves who are dealing with these illnesses.
Thank you for stopping by. And if you want to talk, I’m right here.
