BONUS episode! I talk about my tumultuous + toxic love affair with cocaine and what eventually led to a suicide attempt last September. Though suicide is often seen as purely negative, I found this experience to be life-changing and I think it needed to happen to me.
This is not a 'typical' episode because, as you see in the title, I interviewed myself. I thought it would be a funny way to talk about something fairly "heavy". I don't know if it ended up being funny at all... But I think the episode is still very interesting--though I'm very nervous to share it. People open up to me (and thousands of strangers who listen to Feelin Weird) every week about things that scare them, and 75% of guests (not a mathematician...) feel VERY nervous about doing it and are often hesitant to even share their stories, so I think it's important for me to share my WEIRD things as well (so I know what it's like). In my opinion, it's VERY important to talk about suicide (ideations, attempts, and just suicide in general) and I'm happy to share my experience.
TRIGGER WARNING: I talk about suicide, drugs and cutting myself--also, there is mention of blood. Please be cautious if any of those things trigger you! I honestly don't find these things hard to listen to--I LOVE HEARING THESE STORIES--but I know everyone is different.
Thanks so much for listening, friend!
