TW: anxiety, depression
Karlie kicks off this new episode with anxiety experiences from childhood. From being pulled out of class to peeing herself during a standardized test, it’s been quite a trip.

Later on, she talks to long time friend and graduate student, Forrest. Though he doesn’t have a mental health diagnosis, Forrest finds it helpful to go to regular group therapy. He also details how Jiu Jitsu connects the body and the mind, and how different people fill different roles in your life.
