"And we're talking about a very painful topic called Suicide. Dr. Hobson. You started the story about the father who was involving his Children. In his extreme view of climate change, and, uh, took them, I guess to demonstrations and think then educated them a lot about this. Yes, all kinds of things and the positive was there as is his wife told the story. It was the next wife in, But she tells the story of thinking that he was directly directing them into positive action. You know all that being good, but he became as story went on. He became so extreme in this views. That scared that these girls and he they were forced by him to make speeches. Along with him about the you know the concern of climate change, and they just was too much. It didn't it didn't do what we know we all need to do with Children. We need to keep some perspective. Because they are not adults. They are not thinking in the same world that adults are and so you can just push them too far. And that's what happened to this young woman. Who did did attempt to take her life. Fortunately, she didn't enter life. But then she and the sister told the story later as adults, and in fact, they were totally estranged from their father. By the time this was all over That's very sad, so very sad story. I think what I'm hearing is, it's good to Educate your Children about things, but you have to remember it needs to be a judge appropriate. I remember 9 11 and the fact that Children Would see it on the news over and over and over and because they didn't have the tools to realize it was a replay. Right. They kept thinking more buildings were being knocked down by airplanes. Yeah, it was just looping that looping where it looks over and over over again, and that's confusing to Children. And and when you're hearing the most important person in the world in your life, your parent Who just continues to grow into the to an extreme view, whether it's climate change or the other end of that, that nobody should force us to be vaccinated Anti government What would you say it is, It just needs to be Kept into perspective. We really can push our Children. Into, um, taking something that we know is adults will end their life forever. There is not a way back the best we know. But then or not, They don't know that. They don't know that they don't realize that it's so permanent. So permanent? Yes. And so you know, Tomorrow things will and many people say this to you. And over the years and therapy tomorrow, things were different Last night. It was so dark, but tomorrow it was different. And so when that they don't make don't get there, then tomorrow, so a better way forward while Children just don't know that and so we have to really guard them as parents around them. It seems to me also that my experience with Children is that at night, everything gangs up on them. I mean everything. They're exhausted and everything kind of hits it once. How do you get them through that nighttime darkness so that when the sun comes up, it's a new day. It's a new day. You know, that's called Sundowners. Have you ever heard that term sundowners? Not for Children, but I have for older people in nursing homes, the same Come to the same way that work, she said. A lot nursing homes people at this day like drops, They tend to get depressed and they have more issues in the nursing homes. Especially with people that are suffering from dementia. So kind of with kids. That's the same thing you and I've done a show actually on affective disorder, where people because the dark as the year gets darker, Yes, they're actually affected by depression more. And so some people the darkness falls, um instant to make them that way. So if you see that with your kids, that's an important time to kind of be sure you're there as a parent. They're not alone. Always good to have a family dinner. You know, and I know how hard that is. I was a single mom for some years, and it's really hard to get a family dinner does tempting just to grab a pizza. Whatever. But it's so good to have some time in the evening where you sit down together and you turn off. You know all the devices. All the devices have to go off for you know, even if you only get in 30 minutes I want my kids were younger. They were not as extreme but Who had by I mean, I think I just picked it time by eight o'clock. Everything was turned off, including my phone, telephones, televisions we could read. I could sit and read and they could take a shower and come and visit with me or we do homework. But there was quiet time was called a quiet done. And I I thought that was really important because these kids are stressed all day long exposed Noise. And I think it's important for all of us to kind of decompress at night. And they're exposed to so many different kinds of noise these days. Oh, my God are and then they and then you have to take in you and I can walk through some of the factors that Um, cause suicide attempts and just think about how many of these factors are around our Children and around us. And, you know, maybe maybe not. Well, it's pretty scary that 11 what'd I say? One death occurs every 11 minutes. That's pretty high, and it's going up. The numbers are Excuse me. The numbers are going up. So you wonder about that the pandemic couldn't have helped. But here's some things some factors that really cause we're going to have to pick it up with the factors because Fox News is going to start any minute now, So Dr Gail Llewellyn Hobson and I will continue with live forward dot net. Featuring Dr Gala Will and Hobson and tonight are painful topic is suicide. And we hope to be very helpful here. Listening to 1000 Katie. Okay, I'm Gwen Falconer Lippert. Fox News.

"Dot net featuring Dr Gail Llewellyn Hobson licensed psychologists for over 40 years, and she's in Norman. She's the former director of Mercy Behavioral health here in Oklahoma City, and his doctor, Gail says lift forward learn backward so you can take a perspective from where you've been and apply it to where you are going. Last week, we talked about homeless and homeless people, and we got some surprising statistics. So we're going to continue our discussion of homelessness and mental health. Dr. Hobson. Welcome to 1000. Katie. Okay. Thank you, Glenn. It's good to be here. How are you this evening? I am great. Thank you very much. Good. Good. I know you've done your prevention for the day and taking taking you walk. Have I have good? Good for you? I think that's so so important that you do that every day for Five years. Well, I'm approaching 1800 in a row. So Yeah, my goodness. That's amazing, And that's so healthy and that is, you know, that's part of what prevents what we're going to talk about tonight. And you're right, just pulling in the population of the homeless and how they they as well as some other groups are at a high risk for suicide. So we wanted to. You know, I want to take on this hard topic again tonight, which is suicide. It's a tough one, isn't it when it's terrible, and you know there's that song from MASH. Which the words of the song are Suicide is painless. No, it's not suicide is painful for everyone around you. Everyone involved exactly. And Gwen when you consider Um One death occurs by suicide. Every 11 minutes. That's terrible. It's just, you know, that's a lot. That's a lot and that Spread, of course to the person that was so horribly disturbed in distraught that they took their own life, But then they spread that. Well, we know by the research is that spread Within the family and through many generations, actually, And when you say spread what What are you referring to? Exactly? Well, what I mean is that the likelihood of occurring A suicide occurring again, and the family line is much higher when Susan suicide in that in that family linage, So if a grandfather commits suicide, it's more likely that there will be a grandchild or A child of that person that will also take their life that way. Because it's part of the family history or Yeah, I think there's kind of multiple reasons for it. Part of it is maybe that there's some, there's already mental illness in the In the family line. Um and we know people with mental disorders do have a greater prevalence of suicide there to higher risk for suicide. For example, Um major. Of course, it makes sense that a major depressive disorder makes someone about 20% higher, more likely to commit suicide. So you know if you get these major mental health disorders and family lined, and that's going to be part of the increase. I think there's some other things, um, knowing that that was the way that they your parent and did their life. Has to have an influence, and now you see things So I think there's a complex situation that it it does increase the likelihood of suicide. I'm down the family linage. So you're going to talk about the psychology of a person who is considering this Yeah, I'll try to I'll try to bring that into it. Of course, it you know, might go through this start here with a list of disorders that are going to make you all of us sort of red flags. The things that all of us need to be aware of, when when you have when you know someone with these disorders, Of course, the first is is a major depressive disorder. Whether it's acute or chronic. Sometimes it's a cute, You know, it's just Something's happened, a divorce or a death in the family, or whatever time to a red flag time family members and in communities sort of rally around that person. That's what prevents it. Bipolar disorder is another one. That is, even though it's way over, Diagnosed and misdiagnosed, bipolar is or manic depression. Whichever way you want to call it. Um, if you have it, If it's there, then suicide is up occurs at a higher rate. It's also true for schizophrenia. Schizophrenics. What we know about these. These major disorders is thing. These people normally don't hurt others there, not a danger to others. That's not the case. But they are a danger to themselves. Self schizophrenia can comes with a higher risk of suicide. Major personality disorders. What we call in my life field, major person or personality disorders. Those that are, um, really not very treatable or very difficult to treat treat like Borderline personality disorder. A narcissistic personality disorder. We've been all the things that go along with that drugs and alcohol and so forth. Make you at a higher risk for suicide. And there's others PTSD. We know veterans have a higher rate, so PTSD experiencing some trump trauma, whether it's in the military or can be things like a car wreck or a childhood trauma. That makes you at a higher risk for suicide. He, interestingly enough when eating disorders. Really? That's a yes that's a very high that has a high suicide risk because it is so difficult to treat that And, um it comes. It's like a compulsive disorder, so it's difficult to treat So anorexia, particularly where they're just kind of seems to be no way out for people. That that's a high raid. And then you add in alcoholism, or, um, uh, addiction like cocaine or heroin or one of the heavy duty drugs. Pain pills. In all of those rates go up for suicide. It seems to me that these all have I, um, level of excessive spontaneity. That they don't think through to what's on the other side. It's just the immediate Uh, I'll say action or relief for whatever they're doing. Well and immediate pain. You know, it's it's easy to say, Well, how do people get there? We all think that I think, how does someone get there? Do that. Don't they think of their family. But you know if you think about the kind of pain that someone is in enough to take their own life Then that's pretty. That's pretty remarkable. And you know, it's interesting. The only the only drug in terms of the research. We know this can change. But so far marijuana usage cannabis has not been linked to a higher suicide risk. Really. Yeah, because it makes you so complacent about that may be complacent. Maybe it's used for different reasons. I'm not sure we know I can't see in the research that we know all the reasons for that, but we know that's the case. So you know, it's important if these things exist in your family line or or around you any of these disorders. Been the most important thing we all faces did not ignore it. Don't ignore it. Which is so easy to do. We all want to push it aside and say, you know, well, just get better or don't Um, you know, don't bother me with toast, fax because it's hard to hear if you hear that Promise Family member, But then it's really the time to not ignore it. So how do you help a family member? Yeah. Good question. Very good question. Well, we're going to walk through some of that tonight and try to come up with the best step. That you as a as a nonprofessional can take. If you're concerned about your family member, we're going to end with that. So we will for sure. Get that in that answer that question the best way. We know how Crucify had very desk. I've talked about this on your show lots of times, but it's very does side Sprinkle it and nobody would have this kind of pain. We don't have that. But there are some clear steps that can be taken. And you know those? Hopefully, you know those if you're a psychologist and working in this field But sometimes you need to know for your family to and I wanted to tell a story. I don't know if you want me to do that yet about, um, one thing that creates Something that can lead to suicide, particularly among Children. Yeah. Yeah, we have two minutes. What do you think? Well, I'll start the story and then we can go on to other factors. But here's Here's the story. It was actually done on a Ted talk, so I heard this story. And for all the right reasons this father took on an extreme view..

"How can we affect moral authority? When I mean by that is really there's steps tomorrow authority. It's not really magic. It Z Able steps. It's like one hold people accountable. Just like we do our Children. We hold people accountable, So we need to hold those people that were were doing the braking and no one disagrees that the breaking in was wrong. And those people need to be held accountable, especially for murder. We need to We need to tell the truth. And I know truth is not always you and I've talked about Gray and the black and the white so forth, But there's generally a truth and we need to start telling the truth in this country, and we need to go back to that old Bible verse that I mean, I have totally right, but it's close. You're going to others that you would have them do unto you. You know, we need to start thinking about that. What is it like for the other person? Let's let's get in that other person's shoes and yes, we are so divided it admittedly, it's very hard to get over there, but we need to look in the mirror right now. We need to look at the real issues that virus we still got that to deal with. We needed takes him real steps. We need to reach out to our allies as soon as we can. That means our friends. And help each other and really do some concrete healing here. Aziz. We go forward. And how do you feel? The 74 Million people that voted for President Trump. And do not agree with everything we've just said. Yeah, well, and maybe sooner the hospital have a better take on that, Then I do go in, but my sense is that some of them are ready based on what they saw of what I hope is a fairly small group of the one that we're willing to hit a police officer with a flagged all our break out windows. I hope that was a fairly small percentage of the whole group that was there. I know there was some Oklahoma people, though there were quite a few Oklahoma people. Yeah, people that we all know. Yes, exactly. But let's hope those people were not one's going into the capital. I don't know there were no need to be held responsible. And and let's help that other group because we're going to have to help each other. We're gonna pull all boats up here. And even though we disagree with the people that went up there that we think kind of fell into that delusion that frankly, President Trump His has created. As he goes away and his things calm down, and we get better leadership. I'm hoping that whole high percentage of that group comes around. They can You look at things differently, but we all need to be talking and and, um, compromising. Well, and I wish we would get back to being respectful and being respectful of each other. Exactly. And I'm gonna end with something tonight, but at the start of it is and we listened more deeply. We just need to listen more deeply to each other and say And do that good, old reflective listening that you and I've done a program about Don't just for my formulate your thinking, you know, before you even heard the other person's opinion. I like that. And we listen more deeply. And this Dr Gale says live forward. Learn backward. I'll tell you it before we bring Kele on. I'm gonna have to What? Take a break, but when we come back Dr Gail Llewellyn Hobson, licensed psychologist for 40 years, and the former medical director of Mercy, Behavioral Health will be back and joining her and me will be forced states and pro temp Cal Hobson.

"Officer Coupon Do not finally Vice other experience Appliance store. Okay, when talking, delivered 84 degrees in Oklahoma City way we're talking about 2020, by the way. The Oklahoma Sooners. One in the most incredible game against the University of Texas. Is that 2020, perhaps. Dr Gail Llewellyn Hobson is featured on this program. This is live forward dot net that is also her website Ah, licensed psychologist for over 40 years. She also served as the medical director for behavioral health at Mercy Hospital. And each week we do a mental health tune up at this time on 1000. Katie. Okay, So, Dr Hobson I had to get my sports and there I am. Glad people had a chance to be distracted by a ball game. You know, that was that was good. It was time. We have to have good good breaks in your doorway. And that was five hours. Yes. Yeah. So let's talk a little bit about what we're looking at here is in terms of Of the threat to America, and I thought there was a reason I chose this topic was I thought it it's always best to be informed. No matter what else any of us face anytime. Just think about your Children. When you think about AA partner. Whatever it is, you want to be informed. And so I thought, Gosh, we need that We all need to learn a little bit about this. This threat right now, which is basically Call within our community. That may be a problem between the lady and during the election in between the election and January 20th. So what is them? Well, some people call it the far right in America in America. There's would argue that there's also a far left so we'll give it give it that, But don't The most dangerous ones we've seen so far are on the far right And there's a professor at the American University that wrote a book called Hate in the Homeland. That is not out yet. I want to read that assume, is it? It is, but but I read part of parts of it hate in the homeland, and it talked about what motivates people What motivates people like we were talking about Tim McVeigh. What motivates someone to to take thes angry axe and consider the really horrific things that we're talking about doing to the governor in Wisconsin. Just because they disagreed with her. You know, and that's the point. You can disagree without getting to this point, but we know that there there's a group of people. That do that They get to the point where there they will take actions that aren't just expressing their opinions. But they heard others. And so you know what is it? She comes up with some things anger at the government. That's part of it. It's a sense of threat. That's a big one. Is somehow they feel threatened. It's really an existential threat to my life. My being able to live the way I've lived. And it's a multicultural threat. You know, cultures are going to take over and it's going to change where I live. And when I find precious and to those Few groups that really get radicalized may take them on in a in really misogynistic weigh much of it is pretty much mail shamanism. They predominantly if you looked at the six or seven or eight men That were arrested in regards to that They were all male. About same age that McVeigh wass Woods 35. With 30 40 50. Yep, coming in there, and they even kind of looked like, And there's just kind of this view that their way is the right way and then They use language and I think this is so important. They used language and they hear language. The one we all know, said Stand back. Standby and whether it was meant by our president to put them on alert. That everybody has to answer that, but it it it was were weren't they were words that matter into that group, it said. You know, get ready. We may need to. Really, you know, five here and fighting. Unfortunately, and Bob's in our society, lots of guns. And lots of caring of guns and language. That really causes people to get riled up. And unfortunately, I'm just in the last there, too. They're they're being 1400 instances of right wing extremist behavior in Germany just in the last few days. You would think if any country would have learned a lesson about extremism might have been Germany, but it's pretty hot there, too. So we know that and she talks about in her book that these flare up. Let's hope they're flare ups and people don't lose their lives over him, but there's possibilities of dangerousness. That are really we're going to have to watch between the election and In January, 20th and what we all hope is reason wins out and we came up with a way to do this. Whatever happens, it is done in a peaceful way. A democratic way. We've all thought of is an election a democratic way. And so that we don't continue. One of the big things we've done is we've seen a diminished We really diminished ourselves in the role of in the world. Um, I think Americans been looked at to be the ones that would be most mature. Well, we've kind of change that we're not anymore. So we want to turn that around. So I think that looking at the research of what happens to these folks when they get really converted into a called and learning what we can do is society to say, OK, let's pay attention to that. Let's keep that from happening as much as we can. And they're forcing bright people looking at there's a man named Dr Clark. He's at Harvard who? Histon. Gosh, he's he's in Boston. He sent by a lot of studies on On the cult's over the years, I think, since 1974 maybe, and he hypothesizes that this cult conversion syndrome, which probably You would have heard that before meaning how someone gets converted to becoming a cult member. Really? Just one in a few days is kind of the other way. Of the other word to use his brain washing and it doesn't take very long. Before folks become so riled up and where their brain just gets hijacked. Uh, Dr Beckett's gonna be with us next week, and we'll talk again about hijacking of the brain. Parts of the brain that just get hijacked. And I think that's what goes on. You see it with the P O. W C c. It was you remember Patty Davis? Yes. Yeah. Back then. Patty Hearst. Yes. David. Eddie hurt. Sorry. Not David. Yes. And she was just became brainwashed to believe what the coat was teaching her. And so we have got to society. Sit back and take a breath like you said it the first And say, Okay, what? We're what we're seeing in these groups. Relatively small groups we had to remember are relatively small and not let us wrist of the country become overwhelmed..

"Is a food news? Radio 1000 Katie. Okay, 84 degrees in Oklahoma City. And yes, Now it's time for your mental tune up. Dr Gail Llewellyn. Hobson is joining us. And just when we think we get everything figured out, no. Life happens. There used to be a bumper sticker, Dr Hobson. That of said radio happens because it's always you never know what's gonna happen with live radio. And I'm starting to take my radio training and apply it to my life Life. Yeah, I think that's a great idea. We all need to look outside tonight and go. Well, The sky's a little bit of a strange color, right? Yes. And there are some other things going on. Did it fit, you know? You are more important and less important and more important. So then we all get down to how do we feed? How do we handle these normal weather? Normal human feelings. That we're all having a TTE this time. I don't know, but I loved what you posted on Facebook about the expression, cognitive dissonance, and you know, it's important. It's that very thing of why people are going to the beach and mass thinking it's safe. And then they come home sick. So what? For the Ford the definition. What is the definition of cognitive dissidence? Cognitive dissonance? You're exactly right. That's such a good example. I have some others, but that's such a good example. Because we have been told for weeks by the health people. You know, if you get out in groups and you go to the beach and you get in rooms, you're going to get sick. You're going to pass this around. And we all some mini looked the other way, said I don't see this thing. So I'm going to go ahead is just getting too hard to stay home. And so then. Been arises. The fact that Oh, the numbers are way up. So yes, we're into this back and forth and it affects our feelings. So I have to ask you, you know. We talked, I think last week or the week before about if you had to put your Emotional life on a 1 to 10 scale where we're with land grand just for you and I'll share mine too. Well, I'll tell you when I come up here and I know I'm going to talk to you. I meant a eight or a nine. Well, and I feel really good about Sunday night, and I feel real good about what's going on. And then Monday morning, I think I lived through the weekend and then on about Tuesday I am about a three And I boo hoo! So they're everybody knows Now I'm kind of like that woman in the newsroom. I just boo hoo hoo! And then I go on. Okay, So you're saying you turned the numbers around? I think that it's something by the early in the week. You're feeling worse. They were sending not. Yeah. Okay. Also 10 being terrible. Yes, I would say it, but I will. I'm not sure we're doing it like the pain test, right? So on Sunday night? Yeah, I'm Ah, one or two? Yes, Sunday night, And then I was afraid you were gonna say that would be awful. Don't No, no. Okay, Well, yeah, And I think you the reason I put you on the spot because you reflect all of us. We're all feeling that because who couldn't right now, This is not an easy time and we in the normal weather, normal human feelings that air that we all should just Accent like we're going to go through someone, but maybe mad being scared being happy being joyful. Being angry are seven just the basic ones. And if we don't deny those, and we just Say they're going to come out sometimes, and we're going to deal with them in the moment so that we don't stuff them down and they come out sideways and caused symptoms that's healthy. And really in our world. We must time you hope we could deal with feelings that way. But right now we're in a We're in a situation in our country where we got hit with a number of Of stresses in many ways, and so that gets us into this cognitive dissonance thing, because it's all a little bit confusing. Here's Here's the definition of carnage. Distance dissonance is the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs or attitudes. Especially as relating to Behavioral decisions and attitude changes. So if I shorten that and maybe some blue easier terminology, it means that what part of what we're seeing and thinking if it's adding up To what's happening on the ground, and that's not only for us, but we're seeing that throughout the country. So unfortunately, that makes life more of a challenge. Um Basically, cognitive dissonance basically basically occurs when a person holds two or more values which most of us we do and, um And then we have contradictory believes or things that come in contradiction with that. Janet become stressful, and that's called cosmic card into the business because most most human beings want to kind of have that feeling that things make sense that if, for example, you Decide. Yeah, I want to be a vegetarian. I was really important to me to be a vegetarian, but you find yourself a Burger King ordering a great big hamburger. You can rationalize that most many people do, but you could come back to the value of a wait a minute. That's important to me. I don't believe in eating animals or I don't want the Cholesterol or whatever it is, and you can go back and kind of pick that up. But right now we've got a lot of that going on. Well, let me tell you about a friend of mine. I just talked to him earlier and We're talking about. Oh, yes, I know someone that went here and then came home with covet. And he and his comment to me was you know, this week or last week I went out and I went to a bar. And then after I got home, I thought how silly I am and he says, I've been sweating it for two weeks of did my decision on that spur of the moment. Jeopardize my health. Yeah. Or or risk someone else or risk something exactly. And so we're being tough right now. Oh, be brave. Go out there. It's you know, And then you think no, no, no, I know so And so that has this. You know, I actually we, you and I know someone in common. That head coach do radio and a nationalized? Yes. You know, it's easy to rationalize why that's still OK. In fact, that story I had was in a store. Uh, this week and, you know, I knew that there was not mask wearing going on there. So I called ahead to have my order brought out in the car. And then that was kind of ignored, too. And so you know, it's easy for people to rationalize in that storm, assuming they rationalize that I don't think that's really exist. I think that was kind of, you know, I'm just not gonna worry about it. Also pretty young people there. You are not thinking ahead that they saved Grandparent's grandmother's granddads and Children. And besides, of course, we're seeing it happen in the younger people. You're getting it. Yes, This is one time. I'm glad I'm old because I'm in the risk category and I know it And I just say, you know, I'm in that bad category. I think I have no choice. Yeah. So? So you know, you wonder why when I was thinking that cognitive dissonance What's the issue with wearing mask? You know, we we hear all that most of us here and the medical people say that's probably the biggest preventer that in distancing if you could be distant from people, but also just If you aren't math because it'll stop that spread. We know it really doesn't Come to us on food..

"Newsradio one thousand Katie okay Quinn Faulconer liberty which you at sixty six degrees and a beautiful Sunday evening doing a mental health tune up what are people asking you about what are we concerned with what are we afraid of and who do you talk to well I love to talk to my favorite licensed psychologist Dr Gail Llewellyn Hobson she joins me this evening to take us through this mental health tune up we are also going to be joined by cal Hobson he is an instructor at to you in in the lifelong learning program you know well cal Hobson also for his distinguished public service record that too he gave us out at twenty third and Lincoln all those years and it's a part of what makes him so magical when he teaches these classes because of people line up to get his insights on what is going on so what Dr Hobson and cal Hobson welcome to one thousand Katie okay Gail do you want to kind of introduce what we're gonna do next sure enough thank you senator Hobson for being on with this shape that glad to be here great well yeah I know cal kids can cause health my brother many of you know that and I know that his from his many years of service to our state and and actually to our county here in Norman he is really look to for wisdom that next stage on it we're going to talk about and me in a minute self actualization and he's not too too for that wisdom but from many many of his constituents but new students at you know I know you've gotten some emails and I really wanted tonight to focus on the people out there and see what you're hearing well again it depends on the group and what what's the and in their minds right now a lot of people have forgotten that and less it the later extended next week is the filing time at the capitol for elected office in Oklahoma this year I believe it's the next week and M. D. C. the challenge of going through that is pretty intimidating if everything is normal and now you have the most abnormal time frame in the memory of any of this I believe so I've had some some emails from some folks wanting to run for office that's me mails from folks who are in office up in both parties saying well we can't go knock doors right we can't have gone razors weekend at rallies so how do we get our message out a week can they what our priorities are my experience is that we're about to start R. R. O. U. program back up it's called sure lifelong learning program the big praise but it basically means a number of specialty courses non credit that are taught by some of the very finest professors at the university and then if you add on like myself and they cover all range of topics in the arts history politics philosophy geography and that people people mess up now they can't come and sit down and and visit with each other so we're going to start programs up what is known as soon I tried it last week it works it's almost as good as being in the classroom is very interactive and so we all just have to make adjustments as you were saying that Gail as we work our way through this gathered I bet you that a lot of people are listening to radio maybe that haven't been listening to radio mess so much in the past now they were all crappy homes I'm doubly trapped tonight and not only had to separate myself from another human here and then the house but the dogs are barking and so I had them out we welcome all dogs no that's within our target yeah well of course Quinn you'd be the best person to answer the question about radio listeners but I know I know I have to brag on you because you have been selected and passed this to keep this on air and keep your your programming on air and I bet that's really true now I think you all are both very very kind and if if that is true it's because I have incredible guests that have so many insights and that are willing to give up a Sunday night two of the talk to our listeners and so of I I know that senator Hobson you have this Ali course and that it was full and they had to open up another section of it and all that because you have these incredible insights into everything if it if we're going to talk politics list one minute of didn't the governor call a special session and and how was that going to work he has called a special session and that is the only way to have a special session has ever been called to my knowledge in the history of the state they're going to come back in again to try I hope do the one thing that they must get done and that is to riding the budget and then go home it will take a minimum of about a week to get that constitution requires that process but those young men and ladies and they did just come to Oklahoma City and the numbers are unpredictable anyway so they need to just take their best shot at it and get out of town stay home like every body should in this state in every county we another one of the two political Bentley we lack the entire country were fifteen intestine right now the same all dragged up from behind the kinds of things that will make this state a better state so I think they need to get in town get the budget written go home and then we'll see what the numbers look like engine so Dr Hobson now we have these young leaders we have some older ones we have these new young leaders and certainly the new young women that are coming on and now they have this added pressure of a special session a failing budget year if you will I'm I'm that's me characterizing it may not be accurate but and the pressure of social distancing of the day the virus you can't see all these things so what would be your advice to them Dr Robson wow this is you put a heavy though there Graham but I'll do my best I can tell you one thing I think and I I I'm hi cal will be talk about this better but I mean there's no way to deal with the Medicaid issue right now but we need insurance for all in this state and cal uses their waves it in the special group they can they can deal with that issue so that people are covered oh absolutely that of course the legislature could pick up the ball this coming week and passe a Medicaid expansion plan but the real thing that needs to be done is for the governor to do what three hundred and fifteen thousand Oklahomans have asked him to do by signing a petition to accept our own money our own health money and mental health money back from from DC and go ahead and put that stake questions take question eight oh two on the ballot I don't know why he has refused to do that that the people have spoken and he needs to do his job and let him stay down when they're going to have a chance to either approve or deny that program so when that probably puts more pressure on the legislators but I hope all of them especially the young ones that can see I think I can see how important it is will step up and do and put some pressure on to do that but in answer to your question and company out there he probably could answer it better than I can but I know that they all needed to do to take good care of good psychological care of themselves during this time and they'll do what they can in terms of social distancing and saying well but also they need to know that when they walk out the door at night they need to go take a mental health break you know they need to allow themselves to interact with their own families and be the leaders and their household because their most of their parents and also take a second and I'll break it outside to get in the sun you know you know that so important get it just the fact the sun was out today made a better exercise we know that that takes down anxiety and depression by far if you're just getting out of moving I need to do that with the for themselves said distance right now but they need to get out of the capitol building and then take a break and walk well to what we're gonna take a break but senator Hobson Dr Hobson when we come back I'd like to talk more and I know you're going to give us that assignment Dr hi yes of but I'd like to talk more about what how do we prepare for the new normal whatever that is so well because I know that's why you're here to talk about that right anyway I appreciate you all taking time out on this Sunday night and so plus there's so much news about things one of the things my daughter told me today is that they've limited the number of divorces that can happen in one day in China because people spending all this time together has made them not like each other it's not a funny thing sorry I chuckled cal Hobson and Gail Hobson both here licensed psychologist.

"Health tune up you know that every Sunday night we have been doing this and joining me is Dr Gail Llewellyn Hobson she is a licensed psychologist in Norman and she joins us to help us all kind of figure out where we are with all of the stresses and strains that we are having on ourselves and our families doctor Hobson welcome to one thousand Katie okay thank you go in and thank you for for all the time that you're giving to this I just so appreciate it and I know there there are lots of people out there that are appreciative of you when you're here you're really focusing on this in terms of priority and I I greatly appreciate that greatly selfish on my part because I find myself waking up thinking am I dying am I living what am I what am I doing and and and if I could I think the scariest part is that you can't see what it is you're supposed to be protecting yourself from are you there yeah yeah yeah you're right and that is the scariest part because it's it's invisible it's like I know you and I both took a walk today yes and you know it was beautiful it was sun shining and everybody stayed away from each other and it was just lovely but he then you suddenly start thinking well there's these little things floating around somewhere so yes it's very very hard to keep perspective but you know I thought tonight I would be so wise for us to focus on children and two two groups really that are similar in a way the children that are all going to remember this moment in time don't you think yes yes yeah I think there's a reason to sort of focus on that to to guard their mental health for the future that's why I really want to do that the second group though are the health providers in I know all of us are so appreciative for what they're doing but I got it I get a special insight into that because I'm I'm hoping that some of them just really it's kind of debrief seems basically to help with their own stress and what they deal with and so I did that this week with an with a nurse and I tell you they are they are heroes because they're going into situations that sometimes I know they're not they know they're not a hundred percent safe and yet they go because this is their their calling so in some ways I think children and them both of those groups fit into think about this tonight in one email I got ahead I have to use this is but a lovely lady in India named Elizabeth who rode in a quote I just love my sons and grandchildren in quote so much joy in them and I think that's probably any of us that have children grandchildren or anyone that we love we are going to we're going to just be you know wanting to celebrate in nam and course we would like to guard them from this too so how how can we do that how can we kind of have this phone in a way that's really positive and I thought about that a lot and one thing I remember I bet you do too because we're kind of the same generation was when John Kennedy said ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country yes and you know that almost that makes me emotional because I think I was probably about fourteen when I heard that the first time in in a course we all know we went through the loss of him in a pretty dark period of time for a long time and that kind of colored our generation the baby boomers in good ways and maybe not such a good way but one thing I'm seeing friendlies I'm seein young leaders that are really beginning to pick up the the man that you know this next generation and they're gonna they're gonna have to be the leaders in a you know the mayor in Norman and Oklahoma City both young I think I mentioned that the mayor of Oakland city was a student of mine when I was a school counselor one time in Houston so I remember him is very young but he he's just done a wonderful job of assuring people mayor Norman same thing and think it Tulsa I know they're communicating with each other trying to say how do we how do we walk through this and maybe sometimes even when we're at odds with the leadership but we know what's right for our community and I think we really need to celebrate pad in the home I would agree so much and it's funny that you say that because I kind of if you know when you have lots of time you can do nice things or thoughtful things and I had a bunch of my former students in my Facebook contacts in so I sent out a Facebook message that just said well check how are you you are our future and you would be amazed at the response because one so I think they were just so excited to hear that from you well or it was a big heavy you know responsibility that you know I'm the old girl I get to go to the target early shopping hours and that so you're going to have to carry it forward but you're right and I know you are so proud because of our mayor is incredible the Norman mayor is incredible and the Tulsa mayor it is incredible and and make it the governors in many states are picking up and saying let's leap forward and I think I think and as we think about our children and what they're saying and what they need we're gonna talk about what they need in fact the Quinn I'd never do this but I was I I thought about this a lot today I I need to do this in therapy and I haven't done it on your show but I'm going to make an assignment tonight good I need the end well I'm gonna make an assignment and I I wouldn't do that but I didn't think it would perhaps be helpful particularly to the parents out there who are not only taking care of their kids and worrying about their mental health they got through mental health think about hand they have parents of their own to so the parents out there may need to do this assignment more than anybody else I hope it's helpful well because these are things I know I know that puppies are being adopted by the thousands yet and I also know from watching the national news show this morning that psychologists like Q. that are doing what they're calling telemedicine but it's zoom and you know face time and all that stuff with their former patients those numbers have hours are up and up and up because we need this so much yes and and won't that be a good outcome I mean if we if we want to think about what after this is over what we want to go back to let's go back to better mental health and then of course support for mental health care but let's go back to better a better mental health I'll take that with us and leave behind some of the division and the really negative things that we don't want our children right now to go forward with in I thought of the things that worry me most about kids I don't want him to have PTSD from this dot some will some will but if we treat this if we if we get on top of this fast we can prevent a lot of that we do that but what we do for kids that would keep them from having PTSD what we're doing right now and as much as we can and you know you in terms of the numbers I'm seeing more people in the same might present Hey patient load but more and so that's a good sign people are reaching out there saying I need to talk I need to talk about this in the healthcare workers particularly are saying that and that is the prevention we know in treating PTSD when someone has a scary event happened Carmack you know sexual abuse at the things we used to talk about that we don't have time for now but you know that when those things happen what we know is the quicker we get weekly talk and treated the better the the recovery hello Irene always needed in the emergency room if we had a really horrible horrific event we needed them to do briefly need to be talking about it and we're coming up on this anniversary of the the twenty fifth anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing yeah thanks thanks it's same kind of thing and I find my way what I was working in the church like a lot of other mental health people and the reason we did that was because we wanted to quickly have people have a way to be talking and getting support so we can prevent petting kid would have there some other things we might see we might see generalized anxiety disorder go up that term less likely because you know some anxiety during this is obviously necessary and you know required of the events in our lives but we don't want people to take that with them especially children where they go into their lifetime yeah because I treat some people people sometimes they have anxiety generalized anxiety disorder for many many years when it could have been treated and what is that exactly I'm not familiar with it it's kind of a free floating anxiety like more than normal I mean we all need some anxiety or we would drive carefully or think about how to how to pay your bills that kind of thing I collected good stress yes when you get past that well you're so anxious that your thoughts as as a nurse described it to me this week your thoughts you can't turn your thoughts off you can't quit worrying you cannot keep it gets put aside like some of the strategies that we'll talk about in terms of kind of allowing yourself to to be have some down time from it but they can't so we don't want children to go forward with that and we don't want children to remain depressed either we don't want to take on depression is that their lifetime Peter yeah that's not good in the end we know this treatable depression is very treatable but sometimes you don't catch that would could talk therapy until many years later and you know I've seen people in their sixties seventies even one woman that was ninety and he said to me why didn't someone tell me that I could be treated for this and you know that was sad because you don't have to use the medication there's there's ways to handle that to deal with that we know how we need it we need to do good talk therapy when when we can but let's prevent this the other thing that they've done to me we don't want our children to mistrust I did go into the future I know I don't want that for my grandchildren and I I'm sure you don't want that for your cute little twin girls to just go in the future with no trust with government with adults with who's there to take care of us in this field are taken care of and so how do we encourage that well I think that's why it is that today I thought so much about the leaders that we the leaders that we look to and they I need to pass on things like him really what you and I need to do to it we need to pass on things like hope reach you know it's it's it's good to be courageous there was a time we all talked about those of us who remember World War two people we had those people in our lives it may seem so courageous to me you know I look back at my aunts and uncles and father and they seem very courageous yes and I think it's because they felt like they were doing something you know my mother joined the service my father joined the service and they felt like they were part of the solution so when I see these messages like stay home do your part to all that I'm hoping that everybody is feeling that's what they can do to make this better yes because that will lead to altruism and into thinking that I can really do what's right here I think that's part of the answer very much be.
