Episode 2: Anxiety in the Outfield with Connor Perry
This week I'm talkin' all things anxiety with Connor Perry, an outfielder and power hitter for the Detroit Tigers Organization. Little does he know (well now he knows) Connor was actually the impetus behind this very podcast! After stumbling across an article I wrote back in 2015 about Zoloft, Connor reached out to me in January and - long story short - we quickly became virtual pen pals. In this episode, we discuss anxiety, the stigma surrounding medication, and the many faces of unhealed trauma. Connor also discusses his tips & tricks for dealing with panic attacks... and then we geek out for a lil' bit about depersonalization. Take me to your leader!!! 👽
Today we are joined by Connor Perry. He was the number 28 draft pick for the Detroit tigers in 2019 and here he talks about his baseball beginnings, getting drafted and what he has coming with his next season.
