Drinking Points: navigateright Episode
Here it is: Minisode #6. As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve been on a bit of a hiatus for the last couple of months. It’s a break that we needed, but that we couldn’t wait to end. This minisode is a PSA about mental health and mental illness.
“While we were away, I was battling my own mind. I’ve suffered from anxiety, panic, and depression since my early teens but I always found ways to cope. Recently, my coping mechanisms became unhealthy and destructive. My mental illness penetrated every facet of my life, from the time I got out of bed until I would lay my head on the pillow at the end of the night. I wasn’t sleeping, eating, or bathing by the time I really cracked. I had to make a few trips to the hospital, experiment with different medications, and begin therapy to get where I am currently. Honesty will be an important part of my healing process, so Haley and I decided that this minisode would be a great way to update everyone listening on what’s been going on and what you can expect in the future.” -Troy

It’s time for a beer on one of the many patios around town! There’s plenty of history to reveal and a TON of new beers coming out throughout the summer to fuel the podcast!
