It's Like Having Company From a Non-Judgmental Friend

I can't remember how I ran into T-Kea's podcast, but I know that it stemmed from Twitter. Her support, encouragement and praise for individuals pushing and getting through and to the otherside of darkness has been so pure on social media. We've even messaged back and forth when I questioned going back to medication. The dark place got darker just before my 27th birthday... I saught the highest level of support and that was hospitalization. Imagine feeling so low that you can't tolerate listening to music. On my commute to my program after being discharged from the hospital, I would listen to her. It felt as if she was in the car with me. My loneliness was so strong that I didn't want to be around others, but T-Kea really got me through and her amazing guests.

Send this pod to a friend, they might need it or they can even help someone else in need with the information and resources.

Inspiring + highly recommended

This podcast is nothing short of inspiring. Sometimes we are stuck in a rut and just want someone to say the things that need to be said well this podcast does it.

I also like the fact that real life experiences/ struggles are used to convey the all important message of manage your mental health.

Kea is a survivor, living to inspire. Highly recommended.
