Kolina talks about how her anxiety and depression coincide with OCD (TW: talk of suicide attempt).  In 7th grade her anxiety became VERY difficult and by age 13 she had her first counselor, but it would be years before her OCD was diagnosed.  

We also discuss: 
the hierarchy of mental illness and suffering, 
checking, 
therapy, 
medication, 
normalizing your experience, 
being vocal about your "problems", 
relapse,
medication stigma, 
mindfulness, 
AND so much more!

Bradford (ep. 33) returns!!!  It's been one year since we talked and one year of sobriety for him.  Soon after our last talk, he moved to LA (after 13 years in Seattle) and has been rebuilding his life ever since.  He gave up his three greatest loves: his ex, alcohol and crystal meth, but now he has an overwhelming support system and the cosmos is telling him it likes him better sober.  But what's it like to be sober, single, gay and almost 39 years-old in a city like Los Angeles???  Often it seems like sobriety will solve all of our problems, but that's often not the case; the struggle is real.

We also talk about:
his drag career + why he's not performing currently; 
AA (12 step programs); 
making amends; 
fear of rejection; 
feeling invisible; 
shame; 
other people's success; 
putting up a tough exterior to avoid hurt; 
and SO much more!

Thanks so much for listening, friend!

My ex-partner of 6 years and I haven't talked much since we broke up 5 years ago.  In this BONUS episode, we re-connect and talk about all the heavy stuff.  Plus, I get some closure??? 

For most of my life, I wasn't open about my struggles and I didn't talk about my feelings--this person had to experience emotionally void Kye.  I also identified as a cis-het male at this time...  WEIRD!  And, not surprisingly, I was unaware that I was depressed (despite being suicidal and unable to leave the house many days) and was diagnosed a year after our breakup (with G.A.D., major depression and B.P.D.

WHY AM I STILL HUNG UP ON THINGS AND WHY DO I FIND IT HARD TO BE FRIENDS AND WHY CAN'T I DATE ANYONE NOW??  Find out in this episode ;)

Thanks so much for listening, friend!
