@Regran_ed from @deadbootleg 100% OF PROCEEDS GO TO THE AMERICAN FOUNDATION FOR SUICIDE PREVENTION. These shirts are only $10. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US today. On average there are 123 suicides per day. The rate of suicides overshadows even homicide. This is a major problem that requires all of our attention. November 17, 2018 marks National Suicide Survivor Day, where those who are friends and families of those who have committed suicide are remembered. @thunderyells and I have teamed up to bring you this project. Join us today in doing your part in combatting this epidemic. 100% of all proceeds from the sale of these shirts will be donated to the AFSP. Pre-sale will be up for 7 days, with shirts being made available after as well. Please spread the word. 1-800-273-8255 is the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, with trained crisis counselors available 24 hours a day. Available at www.deadbootleg.com Please consider sharing this to increase awareness. Let's see if we can get @johnmayer to share it. #love #suicide #SuicidePrevention #Survivor #suicidesurvivor #depression #afsp #dontdie #notfadeaway #charity #dead #gratefuldead #thegratefuldead #deadandcompany #deadandco #deadheads #deadhead #shirt #tshirt #nationalsuicidesurvivorsday #deadbootleg #thunderyells #youarenotalone - #regrann

This is me. When you suffer from mental illness, like I do, it's so important to own it. I try to wake up each day and look at myself as honestly as I can. I used to pretend that I was perfect, and I tried to strive to maintain that lie, but I couldn't keep it up. It led to multiple hospitalizations, devestating depression, attempted suicide and a terrible constant sense of failure. It literally almost killed me. The truth is, I'm not perfect. I'm far from it (as anyone close to me will tell you). But I'm not an Instagram story. I'm not a magazine spread. I'm a human being, and my flaws are what make me real. My cracks are what give me character. I thank whatever God exists everyday for a tolerant woman and enough strength to continue to build on this rickety frame. No, I'm not perfect, but I'm still super fucking awesome. #love #loveit #lovelife #depression #mentalhealth #mentalillness #SuicidePrevention #suicide #anxiety #health #healthy #behealthy

On a daily basis @midwifeislife and I get told we're #relationshipgoals or #couplesgoals, and let me tell you something, we are. We are everything I would ever hope to be, but only because of what we're not. We're not perfect. We're not complete. We're actually completely imperfect. But in those imperfections we find grace, and forgiveness and compassion. In our imperfection we are able to love each unconditionally and MEAN it. Only when we fuck up can we prove how deep our love goes. It would be sooo easy to love a flawless person. I have a news flash: I'm not easy to love. I'm complicated, emotional, irrational, temperamental, irritating and the list goes on. But Bronwen loves me every single day, despite these things. She struggles with me as I fight to find who I am, and she shows me every day why she's the one for me. So yes, we are fucking #couplegoals, but only because we're fucked up, too. Don't envy us, this relationship is hard work, but goddammit it's worth it. Just because we've found our twin flame doesn't mean we get to stop showing up. You're perfect person is meant to challenge you and help you grow, and that comes with pain and hard work. #love #loveit #loveher #neverdone #everyday #tildeath #bestfriend #iloveher #wife #wifey #luckiestmanalive #lifeisbeautiful #eugene #tahoe #married #marriedlife #relationshipgoals at Bigelow Hot Springs

I haven't been clean shaven in 3 years. Feels weird. I've obviously gotten waaaay less tougherer.

There's not much I enjoy in my old age, but wearing a thong bodysuit, horns and tons of makeup are definitely on the list. There is nothing I wouldn't do to see this woman smile. Her smile is fuel for my life. We'll put the zombie prom down as one more night that proves we're meant for eternity. I love you, Bronwen. And I'm so thankful you support my cross-dressing and overall complete stupidity. You make me feel ok being me. #love #us #twinflame @midwifeislife

As I've spent the last month traveling the world (3 countries, 20 states, 9500+ miles), I've learned one thing: there is nothing of greater beauty to me than my sexy fucking wife. I don't know how, but after driving from Reno to Baltimore and back I want nothing more than to be sitting right next to you, @midwifeislife. at Boise, Idaho

My wife is hands-down the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.

For the longest time I hid behind this smile. I built walls and a brilliant facade, both masking the terror and devastation I was feeling inside. I suffer from severe depression and I never knew why until recently. From the first time I had any obligation to meet or an expectation to succeed I've created a world where anything less than perfection was failure. I asked myself to believe the impossible was not only achievable, but it was the bare minimum I'd accept. This created an unrealistic rubric by which I graded myself. I could never measure up. For a long time I did an alright job keeping up the gimmick, but it was only a matter of time before my house of cards fell completely. I've realized that it's ok to be human. That our imperfections and shortcomings are what give life its flavor. If I had nothing to learn, this would be a terribly boring life. I'm writing this as a public proclamation that I'm a work in progress. I'm not anything other an a perfectly imperfect man. But at least now I'm honest. Thank you, everyone. #depression #perfect #perfectionist #shame #guilt #man

There is no substitute for fantastic friends (and @deadandcompany).

I recently dragged the whole family across 4 states to see @deadandcompany (again) and it was the most incredible time. Thanks for putting up with me, guys. @midwifeislife @lalalydiarae @l3av3r_for_real @passmemylipgloss

I thought she was magic when she made me comfortable with MY body, but I had no idea that most of my stigmas, stereotypes and judgements came from what she did with HER body. I can't claim to be a feminist and encourage the strength and power of women like my daughters while simultaneously trying to keep this one down. I had no idea how "old white republican" my actions were while professing to be a young white liberal. I want my woman SO SEXY that everyone wants her, but goddammit if you look at her you're dead. I want her SO SMART that she can do anything, but shit, if you pass me up you're in trouble. I want her SO FUN to be around that everyone loves her, but so help me God if you take any time from me I'll get you. Thank God this woman loves me enough to help me see the contradiction between my words and my behaviors. Thank God she's sexy enough to make me uncomfortable. I'm still learning, babe. I love you so much. #love #loveit #loveher #neverdone #everyday #tildeath #bestfriend #iloveher #wife #wifey #luckiestmanalive #lifeisbeautiful #reno #tahoe #married #marriedlife #relationshipgoals w/@thesecretlifeoftravelingnurses #feminism #feminist

She's TECHNICALLY just a human. But as sleeps next to me and I look over at her, I can't help but think of what she is to me. She's the thing that gives me the motivation to keep going when I want to stop. She's the one that gives me inspiration to create when I feel empty. She's my biggest fan when I think I'm nothing. She doesn't push me, she walks with me. She makes me want to be the best version of me and she does it by showing me what that looks like. She shows me patience when I have none. She shows me love when I don't deserve it. She shows me kindness when I'm at my worst. She shows me strength when I'm crippled, and tenderness when I'm broken. She doesn't make me feel like less of a man when I feel like a failure. She points out strengths that I thought for sure were weaknesses. She believes in me when I don't, and the best part is that I believe her. Her intentions are so pure and she is the most genuine soul I've ever met. I pray every day that she never finds out just how out of my league she is...but I have a feeling she knows exactly who I am, and that makes me love her even more. #love #loveit #loveher #neverdone #everyday #tildeath #bestfriend #iloveher #wife #wifey #luckiestmanalive #lifeisbeautiful #reno #tahoe #married #marriedlife #relationshipgoals @thesecretlifeoftravelingnurses

You ever find old pictures of your wife, you know, before she was yours, and think, "holy shit, I'm the luckiest man alive, because she's waaaaaay out of my league and always has been"? I kinda think that every day. I am so friggin' blessed to wake up next to this California dime every day. What a gorgeous, hard-working, INCREDIBLE woman. The best I've ever met. The best mother I've ever met. The best mother even to kids from my practice marriage. God, I'm rambling. You make me do that, @thesecretlifeoftravelingnurses. #love #loveit #loveher #neverdone #everyday #tildeath #bestfriend #iloveher #wife #wifey #luckiestmanalive #lifeisbeautiful #reno #tahoe #married #marriedlife #relationshipgoals
