Unhinged Episode #045: The Nearly Perfect Storm

This week we discuss Doug’s recent one-word Facebook post, “Goodbye”, and how that cry for help showed him just how much support he really has. The struggle for mental health is best fought with loved ones who can support the sufferer when they need it most. A single word to show that no one is alone in this struggle can save a life. Thank you to our listeners and our friends on Facebook for all the love, encouragement, and concern. It means everything.

Some outside factors came together all at once to form a nearly perfect storm of bad news that helped spiral Doug down the staircase to severe depression. Starting at 3 minutes and 24 seconds into the show, Doug gives some details about how close he really came to ending it all.

WARNING: Possible Trigger Alert! If anyone listening is particularly sensitive right now, please know that this discussion might contain possible triggers, so please be cautious and either save this episode for another time, or skip the section between 3:24 to about 7:30.

The good news is that Doug is currently feeling much better, partially due to the outpouring of support, which included the donation of a used acoustic guitar. This will help bring music back into his life, which is some of the best therapy a suffering musician can get.

    Doug, someone sent a pizza to your door? How can I get in on some of that action? But seriously, a well-measured and serious discussion of a very pertinent topic, especially with all of the troubling things that are currently going on in the world. They obviously can be very troubling to people in distress. Also, hells no to Carly Rae Jepsen and Hells Yes to Jethro Tull. Darn it, now I'm going to have the painful image of a young Ian Anderson strutting around the stage in a protruding codpiece whilst engaging in his trademark awkward Celtic flute-dancing!!! P.S., please enjoy your guitar, you've most certainly earned it!
