Is Mental Illness Tied to Gun Violence

Is Mental Illness Tied to Gun Violence

I am so grateful that I get to do these shows live on Twitch because we ended up with a great, open conversation.

I was also able to focus on the facts and hopefully, dissipate some incorrect notions we have on the subject. While painting acorns. The finished craft looks pretty bad, but I am more happy that I was able to have a civil conversation (with disagreements with people on the internet.)

I hope you'll be able to stop by next time
(Thus 8 pm, Sun 7pm EST/Thanksgiving SUN only Noon)
Please note that I also sometimes do random IRL's while I research, so be sure to follow me on Twitch and get notifications to know when I am on. When I hit 50 followers, there's a coloring book page surprise awaiting everyone as thanks!

Twitch S2-The Technical Difficulties Episode

Long story short, I only have one video this week, due to some lost footage. It's 29 mins and jam-packed with heartfelt, yet self-aware conversation.

I had an amazing guest. A long-time friend of mine and fellow corgi owner, who also suffers from anxiety, very generously opened up and helped me push through all the tough tech stuff. She was super honest and open, which helped me open up as well. We talked anxiety, carved pumpkins, stigma, diffirent types of symptoms and therapy.
