Hi everyone,

It is World Suicide Prevention Day today, so I wanted to drop a short episode on awareness. Suicide rates have been increasing exponentially with no ending in sight. I would really appreciate if you could give this a listen, then maybe send it to a friend to listen and so on. 

Suicide, the word is noticed, but often the actions leading up to it are not. Check on your friends and family. Ask the question directly..."are you having suicidal thoughts", it IS NOT going to put an idea in their head, however, it may, one day, save a life.

Stay strong and be well my friends, and thank you so much, as always, for your time.

Hey, welcome back and thank you for listening, and for your support. On today's show we will chat with a close friend of mine Dennis Ellis. Dennis and I had spoken for quite a while on social media, and then last year, I was lucky enough to be able to connect with him in person. We are both afflicted with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder), and have many of the same symptoms and thought processes. If you have BPD, or know someone with BPD, please have a listen, and if you learn something new, please pass it on. BPD is at the top of the list of mental health issues that sadly end by suicide, and has an enormous stigma attached to it.

Thank you so much for your time,  your willingness to learn and try to understand something new.

Be well and stay strong.
