So it's been a while since I've posted any content to this site, and I wanted to give you all an update on the situation. My mental health hasn't been the greatest since the pandemic began, and recently, with the help of my partner and a book I'm reading (I'll tell you which one on the next episode), I've come to realize that I likely have undiagnosed ADHD. Now this is a hard thing for me to talk about, as anyone with ADHD or other mental health issues will tell you. But I want you all to know that this realization is a huge relief for me, and a massive weight off my back.
I took some much needed time off to get away from the every day and to reconnect with some friends. I also took in some wonderful sights in the Okanagan (as pictured above). However, I also took stock of my ongoing projects that give me joy and I noticed that this page has been severely lacking in its content. As if the universe was listening, I received an amazing phone call yesterday from a colleague in the podcasting world. Needless to say, I am rejuvenated and invigorated in a way I can't yet describe. I cannot wait to tell you all what I have planned for the fall, once the details have been worked out.
In the meantime, I will be doing a special episode in the coming weeks around mental health, and in particular men's mental health, as it carries a unique level of stigma rooted in patriarchy and toxic masculinity. I want to thank everyone who has supported the show up until now, and I'm excited to continue this journey with all of you sooner rather than later. But most of all, I want to thank my amazing partner who has supported me through all of this. Without her, I wouldn't have gained the invaluable context and perspective I need to get through some of the toughest internal battles I'm facing right now.
I'm booking interviews with guests starting next week, so I'm hoping to have the next episode ready by the beginning of August. Until then, take care of yourselves and take care of each other. And don't forget to wear your masks and practice safe physical distancing, even in this nice weather! We all need to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. See you all soon.
