Worth The Fight Podcast

May 6, 2020

May’s Mental Health Awareness Month begins in grand fashion with an incredible story of overcoming drug addiction. Ed shares vulnerably his epic struggles with a 4-year meth psychosis of extreme paranoia and how he reconciled his mental health challenges, leading him to a path of spirituality, self-improvement, and selfless service to others. Ed authored a profoundly poignant and relevant book chronicling his life’s journey and overcoming, illuminating the dogged pursuit and ceaseless dreams to be a writer. Bravo!
