In acknowledging May as Mental Health Month, I felt compelled to go ahead and release part 2 of this series, I Quit Teaching. My mental health challenges is ultimately the reason why I left the classroom. This diary entry is the longest podcast I have produced to date and one of the most difficult diary entries I've created. I hope this message can be of inspiration to you.  To the teachers still in the classroom, I commend you on your work, effort and energy you give each day. It is somewhat unfortunate that my mental health prohibited me from continuing my career. However, I am growing to be more grateful for this experience because it has helped me to become the man I am today equipped with new tools, strategies and knowledge about my mental wellness.

The phrase "I quit teaching," means more than just the words themselves. Together, they signify a change in my career. The experience was a major transitional point in my life; I will live with these memories for as long as I live.. To this day, I am still unpacking the experience. I started this episode with the intention of "one diary entry" about this topic but that quickly changed. I realized there has to be multiple parts to this topic. Therefore this is a 3 part series! This first episode is the release. Just the raw, overview of my experience. Getting it all off my chest. This topic will unfold over 3 episodes because it just that much to unpack. Maybe more than that! But right now, it will be 3.

Before I knew it, 3 or 4 days had gone by. I was somewhat in shock this had happened. I had slipped up and allowed my depression and anxiety to take over. I have been trying to give myself grace during this time and not be too critical of myself. In this episode I reflect on what life has been like for me and how everyone is experiencing this pandemic in a different way.. Maybe if you lived with your family and were very close; maybe if you had a significant other, it would not be as bad. For me, it's been isolating, depressing and draining. Trying to keep my spirits up and stay focused through this. Depression and Anxiety are high at the time of recording. At the time of this recording, there were approximately 164,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 3,172 deaths here in the USA. Worldwide - 857,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19.

In this episode, I discuss resources and information I found about the corona virus pandemic. This episode was recorded before the city of Atlanta or Georgia implemented any lockdown measures, yet panic was in the air. While recording this episode, I was not aware of the mental and emotional turmoil I was quickly about to be dealing while living during a global pandemic. It had not become real to me at this point in time. At the time of recording,, there were 7,038 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States and 97 deaths.  At the time of recording, there were 197 confirmed cases in the state of Georgia and 3 deaths. The harsh reality of living during a global pandemic had not hit me yet. I try to make light of it and provide resources to stay informed. This is the beginning of the Coronavirus Quarantine Series. A series about life during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

I am back! This weeks episode is a "catch-up" episode. As you may know, I missed a week in publishing my podcast due to just being overwhelmed with life. From my mental health not being in the best place, the death of a legend, Kobe Bryant, to family issues and challenges, it has been overwhelming these past few weeks. However, I found a way to pull myself together and get back to regularly scheduled programming. I am very thankful for this opportunity to podcast and I am grateful for each and every listener I have. The support means more than I can express in words at this time. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy this weeks episode. I am not going anywhere but the small break was necessary. Follow me on Twitter and Instagram @ diaryofambm  I reference a breakfast club interview in my pod fo this week that has many gems with T.D. Jakes. Click the link if you would like to check that out. Again, thank you for tuning in. The growth, transparency, and vulnerability are high in this weeks episode. As as usual, I keep it 100.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/diaryofamadblackman/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diaryofamadblackman/support

For about 10 days, I had to cleanse myself of social media. I took time away from my person IG and was more intentional with how I used social media. Although I did not completely step away, I primarily used my time focused on building my podcast, and the social platforms I use for my pod. It has been a great journey and I have learned a lot from it. I will be more intentional in 2020 and this is just one step in that direction. This episodes shares what this journey has been like. Making room for my healing and clearing my mind is key to leveling up in 2020 and beyond. However one thing will still remain which is this podcast. Find me on Instagram and Twitter - @diaryofambm I will remain active on these platforms, for the sake of my podcast.

I've been feeling uneasy about this podcasting thing lately. I believe its TOO early in the game to be feeling like this but I am still sharing my truth. In this entry, I talk a little about the stigma surrounding mental health and my struggles with sharing. As well as express how I am dealing with creating this platform and what I feel obligated to do, the responsibility that comes with it, and how I am overcoming these challenges. Overall, this is my episode to express that there will never be malicious intent behind anything I share or express. At the same time, I cannot consume myself with the fears of what people may think or feel about what I share.  People are going to think what they want, I have no control over that. What I do have control over is my intentions and purpose which I vow to always be pure and honest. Moreover, hoping to be uplifting, inspiring, and motivating. I hope you enjoy!  Below is the article I referenced in this diary entry.   From The Black Youth Project - http://blackyouthproject.com/the-conditioning-that-fuels-the-mental-health-epidemic-for-black-men-and-how-to-stop-it/  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/diaryofamadblackman/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/diaryofamadblackman/support
