Please allow me to be open and honest. I am an African American male in my 40s, and I suffer from a mental health illness. I have depression, anxiety, and at one point in my life, I tried to commit suicide.
Tax season is here. Hopefully, you have been keeping track of all of your mileage and receipts. You won’t receive your W2 or 1099 until early 2020, but you can prepare for the onslaught of tax documents by preparing throughout 2019.
I have a confession. I am addicted to High-Intensity Interval Training or HIIT. There is something about going hard for a certain amount of time, with only less time to recover. It makes my body feel incredible, and even when I am done working out, my body still burns calories.
I admired the bridge as I drove across it and thought to myself, this would be a great place to jump and die. It has been nearly a decade since I thought about killing myself. Back then, I thought about suicide more than I thought about my children.
