How To Tell If Your Child Is Grieving

"Do you tell if your child is breathing. Will this is such a good question because grieving in its way can look a lot like depression and so part of what we're always trying to tease apart is is a grief or his depression and actually one of the most illuminating essays on this subject was written by sigmund freud in nineteen seventeen. He wrote an essay called morning and melancholy. So morning is what. We mean by grieving. Obviously melancholy is what we used to call depression or would he called depression and what he observed is that they look an awful lot alike and they both have real sadness. They both have a sort of lost interest in the world. They both go on for awhile but what he also observed. Is we accept. Grief and mourning is a totally normal process because we know that people work their way through it and that it's not concerning to us when people are grieving a loss but we don't accept melancholy or depression is a normal process because it doesn't make sense in the context of what's going on around a person and he offered a nat paper a really key distinction that i think definitely applies to older people older kids and adults one of the big differences between morning and depression is in depression alone. There's what he called self-reproach also disliking the self so morning you're sad about what you've lost what you've missed out on what's going on around you what you've had to give up and in depression their sadness and also not liking the self as well and so as parent by not liking the celtics. You just don't like yourself where i'm so inadequate i'm so lame. I you know you guys are doing so much to care for me. I'm not doing my part and so just to get us thinking about telling them apart. It's a pretty useful distinction. If you're looking at your kid thinking this sadness or

But i wanna talk about how these drugs are getting a second look as a way to treat psychiatric problems like depression anxiety substance use disorders. Even ptsd in the past decade. It's become a very hot topic. Brain sites yes. It is a very hot topic. In fact john. Our first shortwave episode was about using silla sivan as a treatment for smoking cessation. Some guy you're bringing this topic back to the podcast. What are some of the drugs will be talking about today. Lot of familiar names. You mentioned suicide side. There's also ketamine masculine. Ibew gain ecstasy even Lsd in some cases and those are all drugs that can cause hallucinations or out of body experiences. Right right and most of them are not legal right but how do they work for depression. And all those other psychiatric conditions so ketamine for example is able to help a lot of people with major depression even when nothing else works about ten years ago i was able to talk to one of the first people to take part in a clinical trial ketamine. His first name is christopher. He asked me not to use his last name. Christopher had depression that made him so aside uil and before he got ketamine he had been prescribed just about every drug out there to treat his depression he told me it started with prozac and paxil and went onto klarna pen atta van zanex ramen gabba penton byu spar depakote. They had me on for a while. That is a long list and none of those helped him either. They didn't work or the side effects. Were so bad. He had quit taking them. But christopher was lucky managed to get into one of the first studies of ketamine and now fifteen years later the fda has approved a version of ketamine for use in people like christopher.

In that time, the percentage of people with unmet mental health needs increased from 9.2% to 11.7%. Researchers say The largest increases were among young adults aged 18 to 29, those with less than a high school education.

That it brought did not hit everyone in the us economy equally and one of the clearest places we can see that is in the retail sector. Yeah so last year. Even as unemployment levels were the highest we'd seen since the great depression retail sales took off the hit an all time high record and that's partly because a lot of people who were able to keep their jobs but weren't necessarily able to travel or eat out or spend their money on those kinds of things started spending their money on stuff instead yes own sales spiked and also exercise equipment home office furniture electronics. Yeah outdoor furniture also. Took off and fire pits. Were selling out also food and cookware. Huge stuff for the kitchen and on a related note athletes or clothing. Saw a big bump you know people buying stretchy pants Stretch your paths more. Stretchy pants than i used to. They're comfortable they're comfortable and they accommodate all the extra food and do you know are changing. Lifestyle has changed what we bylik skin care. Products have done really well. I think because we're all steering visas on zoom all the time and it's not healthy. Oh it's not healthy and so then you end up spending like two hundred dollars on like makeup and face cream to try to like improve that experience yet.

Epilepsy and anti-depressant drug market is one of the largest markets in the world. This starts the journey for you. Doesn't it well. of course. The origin challenge started long before that. But yeah that was. That was a seminal event in changing the direction of my life and fostering in me a commitment to improve people's lives especially with intractable illnesses. And the reason why. I say this kind of starts it. All off is because this kind of this whole passion with your mom you lead to you being a ceo at cyber onyx and and the whole thing but of course that's all it all falls apart at one point continued tragedy for you but then what happens is you're as you're building yourself back up after all this right this. You had to hide the pinnacle you had the low. You went to the high pinnacle of venus a ceo cyber onyx and then that falls apart and then you rebuilding your life and this is where i want to start really and get people's attention is let's let's talk about how we rebuild ourselves after we fall from the highest cliff life and and and you know there could be other cliffs right but one of the things that was so powerful to me was in chapter two because as the world starts in chapter. Two's called the origin challenge and it is an exercise that i don't know where you got it. I don't know how you put this together or if you just came up with this but this challenge of determining your origin is so important. Why are why is our pre programming. Or i think you say from whence we came so important. Well when you think about it the first eighteen years of our lives we are the most open the most impressionable and the most vulnerable. Plus we have the the ultimate respect at that point for authority or father and mother figures so the programming. That's done during those first eighteen years by our parents by our coaches by our teachers by our siblings by our friends by our life experiences in essence represents our de part of our dna our emotional intellectual spiritual etc dna the unlike our biological dna we have the power to change then in order to change that emotional spiritual cetera dna. Our origin programming. We have to understand own it. I which for a lot of us is really hard to do. And i want to take people through a little bit of this if you don't mind because he gets important that people because i did this and i discovered some things. I consider myself to be pretty healthy. That doesn't mean. I don't carry my big black garbage sack of crap. Exactly right right from my past. Here's how you started this and people listen replay the show if you want to get the book. Because he's got every one of these exercises right down five to ten words or phrases that immediately. Come to mind to best. Describe your mother during your childhood. Don't think about whether they're positive or negative. Just write down. What immediately comes to mind. Then do this for your father. Here is the big one for me. Step three now right down three to five things that you wish your mother had done more or less to be a better mother and then step. Four is do the same for your for your father dude. This is powerful. Because i never i never had just you know i think we kind of get into denial that. Our parents don't have much to do with what what's going on in my life. Now you're exactly exactly where and so then we get into this denial thing. And then you start to realize it's ted. I had this conversation with my wife. I said i did this exercise. I want to tell you this wert right from this exercise and i was. I was really blown away because they didn't. I didn't really see because what we'll tell.

Minnesota one of my favorite movies is the station agent. This beautiful quiet little indie film. It was Peter. Drink Lynch's breakout movie actually About a young man named Fimat who has dwarfism who is willed by his friend an empty abandoned train station in the middle of nowhere New Jersey and he goes there to live thinking that he will have a life of solitude. Free of other people and that is not. What happens? The the thing that I love about this movie is the three main characters Finn and then Livia a woman who lives nearby and Joe who runs a side of the road coffee cart. They're all lonely. They're all palpably lonely. And as far as thin in the Livia those two characters are are for sure both depressed and are both living with grief and loss and even self loathing But they they show that totally differently from each other. So fen is completely shut down. He does not express motion. He is shoved everything down. He does not want to talk to people or see people. He's isolating he does not ever want to have to be confronted with the pain that he's carrying around and Livia is an artist and is big and flailing a needy and frazzled. And you can see her doing everything possible every day to sort of talk herself down from the Ledge. I just love how it works to the reality without exaggerating it or making it larger than life that we can be in pain with other people but still not be on the same page of pain next up Dave.

So Erica Anna where are you okay? Hi Good let's have you both talk about this movie. It's a two thousand and four Michelle Gunnery film written by Charlie Kaufman. That takes place in a world where you can have difficult. Memories like from a collapsed relationship simply erased. This is Eric Samy from Irma South Carolina. Hi this is Anna from Oregon. One of the movies that got depression right for me was eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind exemplifies depression because we get to experience the cognitive distortions of the protagonist Joel Barish play by Jim Carey from overgeneralization to emotional reasoning and all or nothing thinking to labeling. We see firsthand how these cognitive distortions affect his well being spoke to the part of me. That just doesn't wanNA feel anymore As a depressed and anxious person my feelings can be heavy and painful and A lot of times it just wanted to stop and it's frustrating to me that I just can't be enormity. Anxiety occurs when we fix a on the future and oppression when we fixate on the path and this film definitely Spotlights Jones depression if I could just in race. What's in my brain and replace it with something that allows me to just be a normal happy person but in the end we get hope as JOE talks to.

I Dunno foo fighters the SANDIES are piled into a model t with a sail on top of it. For some reason they see the wind coming and it's all they can do to keep from being blown off the road and plunging into the Canyon. The normies struggle and wonder where the problem is because to them. The wind doesn't seem that bad. Try being more positive than shout as the SANDIES Model T. goes tumbling off the side. And the Saudis. Deploy the parachutes. They've gotten used to wearing. I'd had good therapists in the past briefly but all I ever took away from. Therapy was a somewhat clearer. Understanding of how messed up I was. That's helpful Shir but it's not really progress like knowing the brand of refrigerator you're locked in and this was not the fault of the therapists I had seen. Who were all trained pros and good at their jobs? It was my fault or cleaning these fault. I never wanted to go all that deepen therapy. Because that's where the monsters were. I'm talking about the really really bad memories. The deep bruises the scars the events that significantly shape a person through injury trauma rather than tackle the past. I was willing to settle for a tense ceasefire with it. Letting my life be like Middle East countries that hate each other. There would be car bombings but a homeland is a homeland. I'd gone through life with the belief often heard in simple-minded quarters of popular psychology that the past is the past and you just have to move on let it go the simple minded say again as if no one had ever tried that before Don Henley and Glenn Fry wrote a song along these lines called get over it my response on would be called fuck off Don Henley Glenn Fry. You don't know what you're talking about. I suspect most people who choose the willfully simplistic Henley method are people who've never had much unpleasant stuff in their pass to begin with because this notion is some bullshit. If you can't understand your past then you don't really know how your mind got to where it is now because you simply don't know yourself making matters worse. Depression causes the saddest to lose hope. It inserts despair where hope should go. And you're left at least suspecting if not believing in your heart that nothing will or even could get better so to figure things out. I mean. Depression doesn't even want you to get up. Take a shower and brush your teeth so something like figuring out and how your own mind works. Feels about as easy as taking a bus to Mars over and over and interviews I conducted for the show I heard about. Cbt cognitive behavioral therapy. It's a practical method of psychological counseling. That's built around retraining. Once thought patterns so that everyday stimuli aren't converted into toxic thoughts you tear down the old roads that always go to the bad parts of town and you build strong new highways to prosperous neighborhoods on the show. It was the guest who had gone through. Cbt who seemed to be doing the best. So when I went to find a new therapist I limited my search. They had to offer this specific approach. They had to be relatively close to my house so I couldn't talk my way out of going. And they couldn't be like twenty three and or named Christine with a K. An I at the end in that First Session. I only got about halfway. Through my biography I think most therapists and patients can get this all done in one session but we had to schedule a second fully. Describe all the MIC. I recall Julie's mouth actually dropping open during one description of family behaving in a not at all nurturing manner when you've shocked a professional therapist you've accomplished something at the end of the second half of intake. Julie paused collected some thoughts. And Said you've been through more than most other people. I gave myself a little mental high five for being the trauma champ quickly imagining lavish yet morose award ceremony. The longest road person with depression travels can often be the one between where they are at present and where they can get help to improve seeking them out making that appointment and keeping that appointment can be a Herculean task and yes. That sounds well crazy. If you can get better..

"It uses your brain to make you think that these lies makes sense. It's hard hard work blowing the bullshit whistle on that sometimes and sometimes depressions lies can be pretty creative. My name is Hannah. I live in Seattle donal and my depression likes to come up with lies that we're not in the throes of a depressive episode are ridiculously silly which makes them very easy to recognize now An example a few years ago was unemployed. Going through a really serious medical issue and deeply depressed might version decided that all of my friends that they weren't a secret club dedicated to hating the one day soon they would pull the got from under me and the way they would trip me was by doing nice things for me like bringing me food after surgery and not just take out food. That took a lot of time to make lasagna. brisket that kind of thing and and now. That's pretty hilarious. But at the time I was like Oh yeah that makes total sense. Of course. That's how they're gonNA drink me a more. Recent example is I published writing online online anonymously and some people have said some very nice things about that but my brain has decided that none of these people meant what they said and they all felt sorry for me. Because I'm a terrible terrible writer. And how could I ever think that anything that I wrote was worth reading. which also does it make any sense? Because these people don't know who I am. What has helped is really interrogating those weird lies because depression is in the business of making you feel bad and not making logical sense chance? I have at least one friend who I can go to who will tell me without judgments to not let depression drive the car. Even though it wants the keys very badly ably and the thing that's probably helped the most is cognitive behavioral therapy. It's a lot of work you have to put in the time in the effort but it really really really really helps. Thanks a secret club. A conspiracy. It's all built around this idea that since depression made do you hate yourself others must feel the same way about you. It's the only logical way you're capable of seeing yourself but it's line number nine if if people are being nice and caring toward you there's a very high probability that they like you and care about you because Clinton d diminishes your value you to yourself. It's easy to project that diminish self into other people's secret motives and agenda but it's ally Elissa mouser her. I live in Akron.

I did things that were harmful to myself because I didn't care about me. Figured it out after realizing they help people and I do good things and then I can choose to do that. My depression just tells me that I'm not good but it's full of Shit like that. You're no good. You're not no good. That is good all right. Let's do one more make an.

Because people deserve to know people are valuable and worthy of love and care and consideration which brings us to our next lie. Hello my name is Jared Adamson I live in Cincinnati Ohio. Depression told me it was my own fault. Holt it's not. It told me I was helpless to do anything about it. I'm not so I took control. I started with my primary care care physician and now I have a slogan of Jesus Coffee Zoloft. I walked away from a toxic situation. That depression told me I needed to stay in in for the good of my family and situation but I am better away from that which means my family is better and stronger because with with the help of my wife I was able to discern the truth we are living in a very happy state right now. I'm still working working on it. I'm still seeking treatment but I took back the truth. Hi My name is emily. I'm from Ravensdale Avondale. Minnesota depression showed up and started to lie to me constantly in medical school at the beginning of my second year. I missed classes and I failed to exams damns. I had to leave school for a year. I repeat my classes. The next fall when I started back to school with classmates had never met before. Depression lied and told me that I was wearing a sign on my forehead. That said I'm a failure. I'm weak. I have mental illness. It was hard to make friends and of course I still had depression. I kept plugging away. But I wasn't getting a grades. I wasn't achieving my way out of depression anymore. Depression lied and said see. You're not good enough. You won't make it as a doctor. But if there's one word that describes me it's persistent the constant lies. The depression told me kept me down. But not out I got into my first choice.

"Lines is needed told that someone's mood disorder has evolved into a storm a veritable howling tempest in the brain which is indeed what a clinical clinical depression resembles like nothing else. Even the at informed lehman might display sympathy rather than the standard reaction hi my name amos michelle. I live in kankakee illinois. My book choice was where'd you go bernadette. Even though it's told from the daughter's perspective it really hit home for me after having my daughter and me dealing with postpartum depression as a new mom it's easy to feel overwhelmed or like the life that you thought it was going to be isn't exactly what you turned out to have and that desperation to get it back can lead to some pretty severe depression and i really identified with a story ceremony. Nelson half moon bay california another suad listener recommended the bible particularly the psalms of david. I agree one hundred percent and the best part to me is that god called david man after his own heart which helped me to no end when i thought about the the struggles that david faced and the fact that god's still loved and cherished him and saw him and accepted him as flawed and still the man that david was supposed to me gene and perhaps that god in his wisdom and love and struggles looking at his own creation might go through the same.

And he wrote to me after our first show and said, I just heard your show with Peter Saigal. Because I'm a fan of his I'm a fan of yours. And I just so happened to be listening to it while I was on my way to work. It was my day. It wasn't my day to pick up my daughter and visit with her because that's my ex-wife's day. But I thought well, maybe I'll just go visit her at school and tell her I love her and then go kill myself, and I listened to your show, and I thought well, maybe not today. And. And we got it a lot of letters like that we started hearing from a lot of people volumes and volumes and volumes of people. And and we started kind of realizing I started kind of realizing, oh, this isn't a just a show for people with depression. This is the show for people who are touched by depression, which is to say people all of them, and and people really love talking about it and people really love hearing stories and telling stories, and I noticed that when I was approached by people they didn't have any questions about what we were doing. They just wanted to tell me their story. They had heard a guest on the show tell story or meet tell a story and they wanted to do the same thing. And so I'm at lunch by the oranges and. This guy comes up, and he says, hey, I've been listening to your show. I really love it. I want to shake your hand. And I said, oh, sure, I'm glad you like it. And he tells me about his mental health struggles and the struggles and hence family and the handshake stops. But after a while I noticed, oh, I'm still we're still connected here. And then I realized I'm just holding a dude's hand at the grocery store. This is new in my media experiences. But that's what it's about. And that's what we've been doing. And that's what we find. That people have been starving for. I think we do a good job with the show. But I think people are just really eager to have that connection and hear other stories and hear other voices.

"And I got really stressed out. And so the more I did the show. I thought this is messed up. This is supposed to be the greatest thing. But somehow, I'm it's now it's not working. And I thought, you know, even if this is a dream come true and the dream job. Maybe I should quit because I'm not doing well. And then the show got cancelled which saved the effort. Got cancelled because of reasons. And I had been thinking even before this happened of thinking. Well, what about if I did some opposite things what if instead of doing a show in front of a thousand people I went into a tiny room and talk to just one person what if instead of trying to get it out to radio stations. I've just tried to get a show out to people. And so what if I did a podcast, right? And what if I? So I was kind of thinking what do I have to work with you know, like if you're gonna make dinner you open the cupboard in the fridge to try to see what ingredients you have. And I thought well, okay. What do I have? I mean, usually in that situation. I make an omelet, and it's not very good. And I thought well, I know a lot of comedians and musicians who become my friends, and they're really wonderful people. And also whenever I seen whenever I talk to people about depression and mental health. There's a great response. People really are are eager to talk about this thing instead of covering it up all the time. And I thought well what if I what if I combine those things what if I get comedians whose job it is to spread joy and happiness and then completely ruin them by having them talk about depression. Could work. But I also thought well, why are so many creative people so depressed all the time. And so I thought maybe that would be the focus of the show until I talked to patent Oswald about it. And he said, no, no, no, there's depressed, people everywhere you go. It's just that. We're allowed to talk about it at work. If your dentist talked about suicidal ID Asian you'd find a different dentist. With comedians. It's okay. And and so I started to put together this show and everybody kind of got on board with the idea right away, which really surprised me in a in a very delightful way. And ultimately, we kind of came up with the idea of thinking about what comedians and musicians do really really well, which is they phrased things in such a way that cuts through all the fog in the world and connects straight to your heart. And if it's a comedian that's doing that. What happens when they connect with you as you laugh because you're relieved because you're not alone. And that is an incredible talent that comedians have in musicians can do the same thing. Not with a laugh, but but with a lyric or not even connect with you, and you go, oh, I am understood. I'm not alone. I've made this connection with somebody. And and something good has happened thought. Well, what what if we just apply? That to depression, the thing that nobody really is able to define nobody can really talk about what this thing is. Right. And so that became the idea of the show, and we made the show, and we got this wonderful assistance from the organization health partners and make it okay dot org. They got on board early. I want to thank them right now in this theater for sponsoring us in a very fundamental way. Because those people and God love them for saying. Yes, we'll fund a thing called the hilar-. What is it called? That allowed us to go all over the country and make this show and make it reach a lot of people. Make good. So we started this show. And we really thought it was going to be oh, you know, a few people will download it will feel good about ourselves. And then we'll move on and go do something about Gulf or something. And then within a couple of days of it launching it was number two on the I tunes chart among all podcasts or among podcasts where no one gets murdered number one. And that felt good. And we got we got, you know, press coverage, and we won some awards, and it was really nice..
