In 2009 while riding my motorcycle I was hit by an SUV, I don't remember the accident all I know is from what I was told by my friends who were riding with me that day and family members at the hospital.
While on our latest trip to Toronto, we got to do a lot of notable things. We hosted a sold out live show, joined a podcast network, and went to a BBQ festival….but most of all, we made new best friends.
New challenges always arise. When I was young my problems were from things like obstructions. You try to tell a 10 year old not to eat the piles of pineapple in the buffet at Mandarin. Even when my gut was backed up in a bathroom in the middle of Pennsylvania, I still thought it was worth it.
October 20th 2016. A whole bunch of things happened.
Snoop Dogg’s 45th birthday. Bruno the Lab was was found after surviving a month at the bottom of a well in Saskatchewan. Trump and Hillary had their final childish presidential debate. A naked man broke into a home in Vancouver to cook eggs. Cleveland advanced to the World Series after defeating the Jays. My cousin and best friend, Alicia Hayman, died due to a drug addiction.
Then he asked me about my libido and sex life. I shrugged. He told me if I feel like those “feelings” are low that I could go on a dosage of androgens, but some side effects include developing a deeper voice and probably growing a beard. Excuse me? Beard?!
I thought I understood Postpartum Depression- deeper despair than the baby blues, regretting the choice to have children, scary thoughts about harming yourself or your children. I didn't know it looked like this: rage, guilt, anxiety, loss of appetite, insomnia, irrational fears, the inability to concentrate, indecisiveness & irritability.
