Episode Info

Episode Info:

The last time she attempted suicide (her 5th) a few years ago, this week's guest, D'Tondja Foster aka Deedee did not think she would survive it. In fact, something told her it was going to be her last... She made sure she planned it out well, left no stone unturned, swept her house and cleaned up everywhere. However, fate was not done with her, the universe and our world still needed her, and she is here today to tell her story. 

After suffering multiple losses of close relatives all within a short time, Deedee started feeling like she was better off not being here, but through the "power of determination and prayers", she still stands and is walking taller than ever! 

She shares how on that fateful day, she called everyone in her immediate support group, but no one was available, they were all "busy". It goes to show you-you never know when someone will need you, so always stay ready.

After retiring from the healthcare industry,  she is now living her best life as a co-author of multiple books, like Voices Behind Mental Illness (available on Amazon) the bestselling anthology she refers to in her interview, and many other books, like "She Wouldn't Let Me Fall", another co-author work. She is simply enjoying her life as a wife, a mother, and a community activist, dedicated to spreading awareness for mental illness and its complications. 

She can be reached on Facebook @ Deedee McCoy Foster and on Instagram as Deafdiva01
