PART TWO of my talk with an anonymous guest: from bible college to rehab.  It's the classic "it started out as a really fun time, and soon after became a horrific dependency" story.  Wait, is that a classic?  I dunno...  ANYWAY, on a solo backpacking trip in Europe, she broke her wrist in a drunken accident.  Naturally, it didn't heal properly so a number of surgeries later, she was left in a cast with nothing to do for an entire year (which was ample time to develop a dependency on cocaine and alcohol).  

We talk all things: 
disordered eating, 
cocaine and alcohol addiction, 
rehab + recovery, 
being HYPER SENSITIVE (HSP), 
TW sexual assault (briefly mentioned), 
TW self-harm (cutting), 
inter-generational trauma (how trauma passes down the line), 
therapy pets, 
VULNERABILITY + people taking advantage of us, 
the horror of shows and school (being HSP), 
and a whole shit ton more :)

PART ONE! Our guest was class valedictorian, got good grades, went to bible college, and didn't drink or have sex until she was 20, so how did she end up in rehab a few years later?  She appeared to be "excelling" in life (destined for great things), but she was SEVERELY depressed--her coping mechanism was disordered eating, and later alcohol and drugs.

This is PART ONE of her story.

We talk about:
being a highly sensitive person and an empath; 
organized religion; 
perfectionism; 
stage fright; 
feeling inadequate; 
being a female in a male-dominated music scene; 
overwhelming pressure to "succeed"; 
comedy specials; 
and SO much more.
