How to Unf*ck Yourself

Posted by Jason Ferruggia


About 8 years ago I was hospitalized with panic and anxiety attacks.

I made some major changes to my life immediately after…but old habits have a way of sneaking back in if you don’t stay on top of things.

Last December I felt myself slipping only I didn’t do anything about it. I kept soldiering on and trying to plow through like I always do.

Big mistake.

Come mid January my anxiety and stress was bubbling over and nearly at an all time high.

I was in desperate need of a break.

In this episode my good friend, actor Jay Jablonski joins me for a candid discussion on what went wrong, how I caught it,  and how you can also unf*ck yourself.
