Her depression first reared its ugly head in middle school.
She is now in her 40s, and despite trying a myriad of medications
and having a loving support network, the darkness has been unrelenting.
In a living example of the both/and (vs. either/or) reality,
Jennifer is both a multiple suicide attempt survivor
and one of the most-resilient and hopeful guests we’ve had the honor to speak with.
This episode revisits an interview from 2019,
and includes an update she sent the day we recorded.
Next week’s episode will be Jennifer’s update on her mental-health journey
and the new treatments that have her feeling a light has finally flipped on in her dark brain.
