I'm not going to pretend we were best friends. I'm not going to tell you how much of a legend this guy was (you all know that). I will say that I spent some time with the Prodigy. Keith bought me peanut M&M's and told me about his horses & how much peace they brought him. The last thing he ever said to me was please get a horse. I did. For those of you who think dealing with mental health issues is as simple as getting more exercise and just implementing more P.M.A. into your way of life, FUCK YOU! I've dealt with serious anxiety and depression that became chronic in 2014. It's a pain that does not go away without a life long commitment. There is no one way to deal with this affliction. I encourage all if you struggling to get help and never apologize if therapy and prescribed medications are part of what keep you on track. Also, if you want your life to change, than you have to do something different. For me, eating more M&M's and being around some rescue horses has become part of what keeps me grounded. If you are struggling, please please get help. My heart goes out to @theprodigyofficial and all of their extended family. ❤
