Welcome to By the Bi, a podcast for anyone interested in learning a bit more about bisexuality, the swinger community, open relationships, BDSM and everything else your vanilla friends refuse to talk with you about.

Join your hosts, a bisexual expat couple in Sydney Australia, as each episode we chat about ourselves, our experiences, and our relationships. We look forward to addressing specific questions or issues that you might have as well; so pull up a chair, grab a cocktail and listen in. Oh and, by the by, we're glad you're listening.

NOTE: We are NOT trained therapists, doctors, or advice givers.  We are a couple of sexy freaks who thought it important to chat about something we ALL deal with: depression and how it comingles within the lifestyle.

If you feel trapped and like you have nowhere to go and you need to speak with someone please please reach out to one of the many hotlines that can help you!

In Australia: Lifeline (13 11 14) is a 24-hour nationwide service that provides access to crisis support, suicide prevention, and mental health support services.  They also offer an online chat service.

In the US:  The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (1-800-273-TALK [8255]) is a United States-based suicide prevention network of 161 crisis centers that provides a 24/7, toll-free hotline available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress.

Or find someone in your country here!

Finally, there is one that we think is extremely important:

The Trevor Project is a US-based organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth.

While The Trevor Project is technically based in the US but they have a phone number, email support, online chat, and text support and can point you towards someone local who will listen to you and support you!

 

 

On with the show notes...

In this episode, we talk about an issue all of us have, negative headspace.  We attempt to deal with our own demons as we talk about the chemical imbalances that can make what should be an amazing night seem like work. 

From depression to body image to work pressures to second-guessing ourselves to self-acceptance.  We let you in on a bit of what makes us tick.  For those of you who want a resolution... we are still working on that; Rome wasn't built in a day!

So go grab a drink!  Then, sit back, enjoy, and as always, thank you for listening!
