Hey there, let's talk about our mental health. ***PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE LISTENING*** (also skip to 4:30 to avoid hearing me struggle with audio and attempt to sing. This is my very first episode and I will try to be a bit more professional in the future. This means less profanity in the future. To know why I'm making this change, listen on to my Professionalism episode.) I hope you're ready to see what a first year pharmacy student has been trying to do while attempting to earn his Doctorate of Pharmacy degree. He's also realizing he wants to try new things and do something big. He's also referring to himself in the third person. That person is me. Again, I'm David, and this is my Podcast. It’s called Overxdose. It covers everything drugs. You should prescribe (that's a pharmacy pun for subscribe) for your daily dose of dark humor, personal stories, tips for success, and how to #stayhealth and don’t #overxdose.. Here's the GOAL OF MY PODCAST: I'm trying to track and document my journey as I figure out what in the hell I want to do with my life in the Pharmacy world. There are countless opportunities to pursue and is largely unnoticed by the general population. Pharmacy doesn't get a lot of exposure, and a lot of people don't realize how it works. I'm taking an unbiased approach, and try to get my fax straight on everything. I'm exploring how it affects the public, what the new trends are, insider tips for success, new legislation in the works, the requirements to join, and the education required to prepare and pass exams. I'm about giving you the tools you need to succeed and maybe, fingers crossed, laugh a little and enjoy what I experience along the way. At the end of the day, I want this to help patients. What better way than to enjoy a laugh in the process and stream it on a free platform for anyone to enjoy. This is a mini-series I'm considering and I MUST WARN YOU NOW! THIS WILL BE ALARMING TO HEAR FOR SOME. THIS MOST LIKELY WILL MAKE YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE. And that's okay, it's the whole reason I'm doing this podcast. It's something that needs to be heard. But, if you're not ready to take that step yet, that's okay too. It took me awhile to come out and do this project for the very fact it's stigmatized. That's ultimately why I started it. You can't destroy a stigma without standing up (after maybe a skate trick, or a financial set-back, or a personal hardship, or you know, something not something that personally affected me that I think anyone can relate to)looking it in the eye, and diving straight into it. Thank you for reading. Please leave a review on Apple Podcast, and rate it five stars if you thought it was good. If it's something you think I should keep doing. Or do you think its it too soon to be releasing things like this so candidly and honestly? What are we missing? Are you a healthcare specialist who works in any way related to medicine? New trends in Pharmacy? Unique specialties? Current Students? General public with a personal story you want to share? Please reach out by e-mail for potentially setting up an interview: E-mail: [email protected] Thank you again for a review.
