      episode 136: EPISODE 136: Anxiety and Depression are Demons?: Jay Middleton


      Jay has suffered from anxiety and depression since he was 13. Bullied as a chubby kid, but grew up to be a metalcore playing, indie wrestling, stand-up comedian with a heart of gold. Being a Christian with anxiety and depression led to all sorts of religious manipulation, demonic explanations, and attempted exorcisms. But alas there's no demon. Just a human, finding his way through his fantastic journey.
