In this episode of This Is Me Being Uncomfortable, I say “um” and “you know” a lot for the first three or four minutes, then get down to talking about depression and suicidal thoughts, why I stopped buying and bringing beer into my home, pick-up basketball, obsessive running, teaching my daughter how to play guitar, meditation, removing digital distractions from my life, and music therapy.

The Yanni quote I totally jacked up is, “Music is an incredibly direct language. It bypasses language and logic, and speaks directly to your soul.”
On the alcohol note, here are a few solid articles on the topic from personal perspectives: The One Change I Made To Overcome Years Of Depression and Anxiety, by Annie Grace; and The Life-Changing Surprises That Come From Not Drinking For a Year, by Rachel Anne Warren.
