Join Gregg as he welcomes Robert P. Graves, author of “I, Rob Graves: My Struggle with Childhood Trauma, Homosexuality, and Bipolar Disorder: A Memoir” to discuss his riveting autobiography. Having spent his life dealing with chronic clinical depression and bipolar disorder, Robert offers a candid and poignant story about his life as a gay man suffering from these mental health issues and a genetic disposition for substance abuse-which morphed into an anonymous sex addiction during the height of the AIDS Epidemic. He shares the journey he took to come to terms with his homosexuality and overcome tremendous health odds-through years of therapy, medication management, and learning the arts of forgiveness and acceptance-to find success and peace with himself and thrive in the present. He aims to provide an inspirational example of breaking the cycle of mental health stigmas and addiction, both in the gay community and the community at large.
