Twitch S12 Seasonal Affective Disorder With Guest

Hey guys!

I was super lucky to have a new guest on for this episode. Indeed, it was our first dude! (that isn't married to me).

He was also incredibly helpful to those who added questions during the chat.

If you want to connect with Ziggy (and you should), check out his About Me and follow him on your preferred social media. He does voiceovers and is a huge part of the Twitch community.

Can’t wait to see you next episode,

Patrick opened up about his Generalized Anxiety Disorder how he keeps it under wraps to avoid stigma. We talked about the difference in suicide rate between men and women and how that changes in times of economic duress.
