    Thanks Breh. I am fine and actually excited for life for the first time in years. I wanted nothing more than to die for the last 5 years. Literally dreamed of blasting a shotgun into my face or jumping off a building. I began to romanticize my own death and thought that suicide was the answer. The only reason I didn’t kill myself is because of my mom and siblings. They would have been heart broken.

    I am doing a lot of growing and meditating. I am content. I am learning to love myself and want to become a lawyer. I want to live and that is the best thing about my life these days.

    Just did an episode on Mental Health on my Talk Show/Podcast that I recently started. I was bless to be able to have two brothers who work directly in the field come and have this conversation while giving insight. For me it was very informative and an interesting conversation.

    I hope this episode can help anybody who is going through anything in any form or fashion. I do plan on doing a few more episodes in regards to this issue, because I feel like we could cover way more and go deeper.

    Those are quite a bit of symptoms. What was the diagnosing process, and what did it entail?

    Welp, I got offered a job at McDonald's which I do need because I need money, but I also have my eyes on this construction class at a local college that I want to get into because I've heard good things about trades.

    I'm 22, and I don't know about working at McDonald's. I'm anxious and have ADHD (i am pretty sure I have some "other" stuff too) from what I've heard it's a fast paced job and I don't know about that.

    I don't know what "diphramatic breathing" is and I haven't started the class or working yet.
