Each Year Over 125,000 Americans Die from Overdose and Suicide Combined

Each year, over 125,000 Americans die from overdose and suicide combined. And this is NOT even the other causes of death related to substance misuse.

They are our friends, our neighbors, our family members. They go to our churches, eat next to us at our favorite restaurants. They talk to us through our favorite podcasts. And these deaths are completely preventable.

Jay Shifman is a Mental Health and Substance Misuse & Recovery Speaker, Coach, and Advocate, and the host of the Choose Your Struggle podcast. 

Jay has been in recovery for ten years and survived multiple suicide attempts and an overdose. 

Jay Stifman

If YOU KNOW ANYONE who has a substance misuse problem or is concerned about someone who does.....PLEASE listen to this interview. It will excite you when you realize YOU can do something to help! Jay talks about the struggles and the outdated model of care our communities may or may not offer and shows us how we can help those close to us and our community at large.

"There are massive systems changes that need to happen. But until we can have honest conversations around these topics, these lives will continue to be lost. That’s why I produce the Choose Your Struggle podcast.  

I’ve been given a second chance in a country, and a world, where most people don’t even get their first. That’s why I get up every day and work to help end the stigma and ensure that those who need help get the help they deserve. Because we’re in this together.

Are You Uncomfortable and Not Sure How to Act When You See A Disabled Person?

When Kristin Beale was a teenager, a Jetski accident left her paralyzed from the naval down. Her determination to disapprove the diagnosis was only the beginning of a new life for Kristin. 

Kristin is the author of three books, a nine-time marathon finisher, and a nationally competing wheelchair fencer. She is the creator of a weekly comic on Instagram.

Her book, Date Me, is in the process of becoming a TV series. You won't want to miss that!

In her interview, Kristin will motivate you to never give up, soar to places you were told you could not go, and have fun while doing it.

Date Me


Date Me is a collection of comics that tells stories of dating in a wheelchair, social situations sculpted by people’s response to a wheelchair, and the struggle of trying to fit in from a different perspective. Dating is hard enough as an able-bodied person. Throw in the variable of a wheelchair and the “hard” becomes “almost not worth it.” 

Kristin Beale shares stories of her crazy family, the unique and often lousy ways people interact with her because of her disability, and her often failed attempts at dating in a wheelchair with a strained, but ongoing determination not to give up. 

Relatable for many people who have dated in the 21st century, Date Me offers a different perspective from a wheelchair user and how to interact with them. 

Greater Things


 A true story of disability and determination: “From flat-line to sunshine, this story takes you on an unbelievably heart-crossing journey.” —Scott Pettit, Double Take

At age fourteen, Kristin Beale was enjoying a happy summer vacation when a Jet-Ski accident turned her life upside-down—and nearly ended it. Ever since then, she has had to struggle to overcome not only the physical but the psychological toll of her injuries—and her grit and courage have been an inspiration to countless people.
In Greater Things, Kristin offers a raw perspective on everything from how people react to her, to learning how to navigate in and through an inaccessible world, to just trying to make the best of a crummy situation. Filled with honesty, humor, and hope, it’s a realistic yet ultimately uplifting portrait of what it takes to endure hardship with your spirit intact.

A Million Suns

A Million Suns is a continuation, of sorts, of Greater Things. These stories tell of my journey to find the passion that I lost with paralysis. That looks like: trying every adaptive sport, modeling, traveling the world and, eventually, meeting a man whom I love. This one is a lot of fun and I'm excited to share with you!

How Humor Can Help You Control Your Life

Amy Lyle

Amy Lyle is a humorist who grew up in Marietta, Ohio, which is in the heart of Appalachia and known for a population that is partial to moonshine and prone to acts of violence. She has penned two Amazon Humor & Entertainment best-sellers, The Book Of Failures and We’re All A Mess, It’s OK, and is the writer and co-host of the popular talk show, “In The Burbs.

Amy felt helpless in many stages of her career in the entertainment business. One day she had a contract - the next day.....nothing. The cycle kept repeating itself.

Multiply that along with the frustrations of rewriting things more often than she could count. She hated the feeling of being out of control.

Don't miss her interview - she shares how she turned those failures into success and be guaranteed of a good laugh:

Amy Lyle

You will appreciate your own dysfunction a little more as you take a journey through Amy's debacles including: I Was Not Talking To You, where Amy mistakes a handsome man waving at her as a potential suitor but in reality he was only trying to inform her that her coat belt was dragging on the freeway.

And In The Neighborhood, where members of a cult moving in concurred with a suspicious decline in the cat population. You will relish the chapters entitled Calls From Sharon, where Amy's best friend rants about her kids not getting a fair shot because public schools are 'so political. Enjoy I'm Going to Kill You, where Amy compares her lack of sleep from her husband's snoring to the tactics CIA agents use to extract secrets from POW's. 

Feel 20-32% better about your own life after reading Getting Divorced Sucks, where 911 was called after Amy had an adverse reaction from taking Xanax.

The book has been featured on the popular morning show Atlanta and Company, NPR, LA Talk Radio, What Women Want Radio Show, Just4Fun Radio, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Points North Magazine, My Forsyth Magazine, Scoop OTP, Northside Woman and multiple blogs. 



Amy Lyle
Over one hundred contributors share their failures, setbacks and most embarrassing moments for this compilation of hilarity with the hopes that their stories would give the embarrassed and struggling souls some comic and inspirational relief.

Life is riddled with pain, disappointments, and failures, but given enough time, they're folly. "We're All A Mess. It's OK" captures life's most absurd moments honestly and without a filter. It's filled with funny essays and one-liners that highlight the grainier sides of being human and imperfect.

The book covers everything from horrible internet dating experiences, the strangest of co-workers, vacations that went array, to the worst holiday gifts of all time. It's an anthology of real-life disasters.
