When Depression Presents as Impulsivity: The Sneakers Case
Before you tune into this episode, I want to let you know that I cover topics regarding mental health challenges and some of what is shared here may be a trigger for those who are dealing with the topic at hand. Please know that I am not a medical or mental health professional. I am a person who is living with the mental illness of clinical depression and anxiety and this podcast is an audio diary of MY personal journey through recovery. While I find myself a member of a community of millions of people sharing similar struggles, our journeys are unique and personal which is why it’s important that you find a recovery strategy that works for you. Even better when you have the guidance of a licensed mental health and/or medical professional to support you.
In this episode...
Listen in to find out how a pair of sneakers that I don't even own (yet) has given me cause for concern about my depression. You'll hear how a pair of sneaks went from being a symbol of inspiration to guilt, and back around again.
