I know they've argued over everything seemingly everything but what are the origins of the strain in between family members. I mean did something singular precipitate this so the actual reason for the strain is a little murky but are reporting shows that <hes> mortimer was opposed or did not support Raymond son Richard Becoming President of Purdue Pharma in the late nineteen ninety s he held that post for about four years so that is possibly a one of it but the two brothers <hes> when they were alive they both since passed away they sat on opposite sides and board meetings they didn't communicate to each other for many years and only talk through intermediaries and this was this was well known within the company amongst employees. was these these to sort of sides that existed.

But a lot of people saying there is the wind or we've had power failures before or at least substations exploded without wind. And so people are wondering what the hell's going on others are saying that this could be a hack summer saying there may have been some event happening in outer space. I mean, a lot of things I mean CenturyLink has been down today in various areas various places across the country. No explicit explanation for that. I had the power failure in my home tonight.

Something's going on something has happened. And they don't know what it is. Yeah. I I had no idea. What happened? But yeah, I just I just wanted to call let you know that there's absolutely no win.

"Lot more about me. But you could give me a call and learn as much as you want. I want to bring up something that people have this condition, but not very many people talk about it. And it is a fear a fear of driving particularly on highways. A strong fear of crossing over bridges. Which also lines. Sometimes people have a very strong fear of heights or going near a window, and they don't necessarily talk about it. And they try to avoid it. But every single fear that's not addressed will actually grow and take over more and more potsy your life. These fears are connected in different ways to different people. That's why I do need a background of your life. But then after that, we just go forward these fears are one hundred percent able to be changed fixed and driving over bridges will be your favourite thing. But people have this fear of being out of control. And then once once they have an anxiety attack. Anyone who's right now? Listening to us and their millions of people colon. Tell me about your first panic attack. Then they have the fear fear. Then they have the fear that this is going to happen. Again. They have the fear that they're not going to be able to make it. They have the fear that they're going to embarrass themselves. When we talk about primary theories, we talk about fears that are in Nate to every human being, and that's the fear of not being loved which is why so many people why there's so many dating apps now, the problem is is that most people don't know how to communicate and they don't know how to profile so they end up dating. We could write a book on dating nightmare. I could write many books dating nightmares. In fact, maybe I have, but I'm telling you, but the truth is is that. Need to learn how to communicate and you need to know that out there. It's it's the safety. That exists has to always be between your ears. People are afraid to leave home. Let me ask you this question. Okay. Not a monologue. I'm talking to you. What if your home was simply between your ears? What if everywhere you went was your home? What if you believe like your frontal lobe believes that failure is just another form of success the quote, Edison? Con Edison, he said, I know a thousand and one ways not to make light bulb. I believe he held more scientific patterns than any other event, or you know, why he had no fear of failure. He embraced it. And learn from it. So the bottom line is imagine what your life would be with no fear of rejection. Now, you've heard me say this before. But it's worth saying again, all rejection is self rejection. What does that mean? So what I usually do is when it's a new patient in trying to explain this up sitting in my seat, and I tell them call me fat and bald. Now, I am Bolden twenty pounds overweight, and they don't want to do it. But I push him. I push push. And they say, okay, you fat and bald exactly it doesn't bother me. I was skinny all my life. I like my my little belly. Okay. And as far as being bald. At least my wife tells me I'm better looking than when I had hair, and you know, what I really don't care because it doesn't change anything. I'm able to enjoy life..
