“Was I being selfish? Irresponsible? Frustrated that the allure of this trip wouldn’t let me stay home, my perspective began to unravel.”

When adventure and anxiety collide on the banks of the river. I set out to write a fishing story and ended up writing a mental health story.

Thanks @mountainlifemedia for publishing the adventure and @feetbanks for the great guidance in writing about my experience.

Thanks @jarredmartin and @kyepetersen for being such solid friends on the trip, even with my head in a million different places…
