"fetal alcohol syndrome" Discussed on The Addicted Mind Podcast
"Okay, so let's jump in and talk about what is fetal alcohol spectrum disorders. What do we see? What are they look like? How do we know that? So FASD is an umbrella term that kind of goes over multiple different disorders. Okay. So the most probably commonly heard FAC is FAS. Fetal alcohol syndrome. So that is, I guess, the most popular one that people hear of, but it is the least prevalent. Right. So with fetal alcohol syndrome, part of the way that that is diagnosed is specifically by looking at, they call them phenotypes, but for the non science brain people, facial features. So there are some key facial features that are used in diagnosing that. Along with evidence of prenatal alcohol exposure and evidence of central nervous system abnormalities. So looking at the structure and the function of the brain to see how that's working. So with the facial features, the prenatal alcohol exposure and the central nervous system that is how they will make a fetal alcohol syndrome diagnosis. Let's face it, eating healthy is probably one of the number one goals most people set for themselves and their families. I know it is for me, and this is where our sponsor comes in, HelloFresh, America's number one meal kit.

That's HelloFresh dot com slash addicted mine 65 and use code addicted minds 65 or 65% off plus free shipping. All right, let's get back to the interview. So they'll be able to look at that and be able to see that. And then from there, be able to make that diagnosis. What are some of the factors that increase the risk of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders? Factors that increase the risk. So the amount of alcohol that is being used by the pregnant person and it depends on when that alcohol is being used also. So for example, with fetal alcohol syndrome, the least prevalent of all the FASD, those facial features only show up between day 19 and 21 of gestation. So it's that if that pregnant person is not consuming alcohol from day 19 to 21, that baby may not have the facial features for an FAS diagnosis. And so there's like, in the FASD world, people get very upset about facial features because it's such a small window. And a lot of providers will just write it off, that child doesn't have the facial features, so they're not even going to consider any other essays. So day 19 to 21 for those facial features, but the brain is still developing, we know, throughout the entire pregnancy. So the brain can still be affected in different ways depending on when that alcohol is consumed during the pregnancy that baby just may not have those facial features exhibited. Other risk factors, so general health of the mother nutrition, social determinants in prevention, we talk a lot about social determinants of health. So the community they live in, the support system they have, their financial situation, do they have health insurance? Also previous diagnosis of an FASD. Right, okay. Okay. So we can see that this can be diagnosed. And then once it's diagnosed, what do we do? What happens? What does a person do? So early intervention is key. So the CDC does have some programs that they recommend that they have on their website that I can share the resources with you too. But there's no cure. So there's no magic medication or magic pill, there are interventions that we can direct individuals to that will help. But it's not curable. It's treatable and manageable. I will say. So if some of the common things after diagnosis would be cognitive behavioral therapy, looking at the strength that that individual has and focusing on those, there's some new research coming out of Canada that's specifically about the strengths of an individual with an FASD. But the earlier that that FASD is identified for that individual, the better because the sooner we can get them into some of those interventional programs, the higher the likelihood they will have less challenges in the future. So one statistic I commonly bring up when I do trainings for Indiana, individuals with FASD are more likely to have contact with law enforcement, 60% of individuals with FASD will come in contact with law enforcement at some point during their life. And 35% will be incarcerated. Wow, that is a lot. Yeah, and so some of that is related to some of the FASD symptoms. So like impulsivity, right? The inability to critically think about consequences of your actions. And so the average child with FASD begins their contact with law enforcement between age 12 and 13. So, you know, think back to when you were 12, you know, did you have a good concept of even what was right and wrong. And then add neurodiverse brain on top of that where you are not able to determine what the consequences of your actions are going to be, that is why it's more common to see individuals with FASD in the criminal justice system

"She is the executive director of the Indiana alliance on prenatal substance exposure, Jackie is originally an Illinois native, has a master's in public health and almost a decade of experience in the field of health education, promotion, and community engagement. Jackie became involved with the Indiana alliance because she has always been passionate about seeing a need in her community and filling it. By educating people and informing them and you'll hear several times mentioned in the podcast that there is no safe amount of alcohol during pregnancy, we can prevent FASD, which is fetal alcohol syndrome disorder, and so many of the lifelong effects, including substance use, poor mental health outcomes, and incarceration that can be associated with it. And Jackie's going to talk about their recent launch with the San Diego university of brain. The first of its kind online FASD screening tool that assesses cognitive and behavioral features associated with FASD. So we're going to be talking about the importance of prevention and raising awareness about this issue.

And join our Facebook group, just go to Facebook and type in the ending to my podcast, click join, and continue the conversation online. All right. Stay tuned for this episode. All right, everyone. Welcome to the addicted mind podcast. My guest today is Jackie Franks. She is the executive director of the Indiana alliance on prenatal substance exposure. So we're going to be talking about fetal alcohol syndrome, fetal alcohol, spectrum disorder, the importance of looking at this issue and hopefully preventing this in the future. So let's just jump in, Jackie, tell me a little bit about you and this work that you're doing. And there's some really exciting stuff that you guys are doing as well as some research too that I want to get into as well. But introduce yourself. My name is Jackie Franks. I am the executive director like you said of Indiana alliance on prenatal substance exposure. I have been here for a grand total of 6 months, so I really hit the ground running, jumped in the deep end, I guess you can say, yeah, it's been it's been quite an adventure. So our organization is funded by Indiana's division of mental health and addiction. And so our focus is on prevention of prenatal substance exposure. I'm sure we'll get into all the nitty Gritty details in a little bit about the data and the statistics and what we see in Indiana, but that really is the key of preventing pregnant people specifically consuming alcohol, but all substances so that so that those babies are healthy and go on to lead healthy lives to set them up for the best success that we can. You asked why this work is important to me and I would have to say, I have worked with a lot of individuals throughout my career that were not diagnosed or not properly diagnosed or were misdiagnosed and not fully understanding, I guess the intricacies of a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and how that can affect a person's brain, how that affects their development and their cognitive abilities. That can be very frustrating for someone. So in addition to the prevention aspect, we also create a lot of awareness and help families really get connected to the resources that they need to get a diagnosis of that's something they're looking for or just to better understand how an individual with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder can just function in day to day life. Right, so it's not just the prevention piece, but also if people have been impacted and they're living their life and they don't realize maybe they're impacted by this. Alcohol is everywhere. And I think at certain times in our history, it was like, yeah, you should have a glass of wine if you're pregnant and you're not feeling well. Yeah, sure, do that. But we realize now that's just, don't do that. So that's like a cultural norm that's definitely a barrier to the work we do because back, you know, I'm thinking when my mom was pregnant with me, like drinking when pregnant was accepted or doctors would say you can have a certain amount of drinks. And I just, you know, just to be clear for everybody right off the bat, if you learn nothing else today, please remember this. There's no amount or type of alcohol that is safe to consume during pregnancy. Just absolutely not. And the research is a really, really clear on that. Yes. So let's jump in and talk about bringing this awareness and some of the statistics around this issue and why this is so important to have an organization that's dedicated just to this. Yeah, so one in 7 pregnant people report consuming alcohol during pregnancy, one in 7. That's pretty high, right? So 7 of those babies is exposed in the womb, essentially. The follow-up, the data we have after that is not as good because the diagnoses are hard to obtain. Specifically in Indiana, we don't have a lot of facilities that diagnose for FASD. So it goes largely undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. So a lot of times FASD will be diagnosed as ADHD. Some of the symptoms are very similar. We just had a press release running connecting the dots video it's available on our YouTube page. Talking about how FASD can be misconstrued into other conditions. Wow. I did not know that. I would assume that ADHD would be the result of this, but you're actually saying there we're seeing there are actually different in their separate. And they can get misdiagnosed. Yeah, very commonly. And I actually had a friend who told me her son was recently diagnosed. And I know this is, I just talked about this in our training. I did with providers. I know this is a difficult conversation to have with somebody, but from my mind from the kind of FASD perspective, you know, her son was recently diagnosed with ADHD, and I asked the difficult personal question and said, you know, I know this is personal question, but did you ever consume alcohol when you were pregnant? Even before you knew you're pregnant? Right. 45% of pregnancies in the U.S. are unplanned, right? So a lot of these women are not realizing that they even could be pregnant and maybe still drinking. And so that is where some of the cases of FASD come from as well. And she said, well, you know, my pregnancy was unplanned. I was in college and, you know, yeah, I had some drinks before I knew I was pregnant. And I just planted the seed and said, this is something to consider if the ADHD treatment is not helping or you feel like it's missing something, consider talking to the doctor about fetal alcohol spectrum disorders because they can co occur, but they can also be misdiagnosed.

"Being somebody who works with people with mental disabilities. A lot of them come came from abusive households, whether they were just being straight, abused by their family members, whether it's sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, I have residents who were born with fetal alcohol syndrome. I have people who were just abandoned by family members and had mental breaks and stayed in that invented in that situation. So it's more of a hands on experience for me, knowing that these people never had anybody any family members were thrown into the system since they were children and just tossed around and just tossed around until it became the state's problem. So it's things like that. And it's the privilege that people have that allows them to be blinded by things like that. And I would never get it twisted that even even me as a black woman in the lower middle class end of society. I do have my own privilege as well. So I feel that that's a major part of the problem because the people who are making these decisions have either grown up privileged or oh yeah. They access some type of privilege on their own. Yeah. And also, don't forget the people who get to privilege and forget about the struggle. Before the privilege, even bestow came into play. Right. If you race that from their life exactly, exactly. Yeah, that's past them. Right. Right, and I'm really sick and tired of just the only privilege being talked about is white privilege. There's so many other privileges that people are allowed that people have. There are so many. There's financial privilege you can be black, white Hispanic, Asian, whatever the fuck and have financial privilege. You can have some type of fucking thug privilege. There's so much privilege you can have have. This is the first thing that popped into my mind. Not a thug. Right, right. So it makes you so it makes you blind at the certain things more than others. And I think

"Never experienced even if I was poor or with members. So it really, really became an emotional, not only was it hard to do therapy with special needs children who born with fetal alcohol syndrome or vitamin K deficiency. Things that you would think are preventable. But it was just the emotional part of just seeing that even when they went home, there was no joy, necessarily for some of them. That was hard. That was hard. So it made me revisit only wanting to be there, but also, you know, did I want to consider a different career? Is that when you decided to go back to school after that? Yes. So I would come home, I would come home from work in the evenings, and it's just so when I went to college, email just came out the last semester before I graduated, so me working on a computer with word processing and that kind of thing. And so the Internet was just starting to become popular when I would come home for me at least. It might have been for other people but not for me. So I would come home from work and get on the Internet and start to kind of do my search and look at different fields and then I found human factors psychology that way. And what about that appeal to you? Because I don't know if you remember me mentioning that I started out undergrad as an engineering major. So I was very interested in engineering. I was interested in designing things and creating things that would impact people in their lives. And I loved interacting with people. So in fact, there's psychology was the intersection of those things. And so you attended North Carolina state studying this. This is where you got your masters and then eventually your PhD in human factors, ergonomics slash experimental psychology. Yes. I remember from that time whenever anyone talked about ergonomics or at least maybe in the context that I heard, it always was about office furniture. It ergonomic mouse and ergonomic chair ergonomic events. But of course, ergonomics is more than just that, correct. It is. And it's funny because when I first came to North Carolina state, I thought that that was going to be more of my major and that my minor would involve psychology. But when I got here, I got to know more about the psychology program and I flipped it. And I was like, no, I really, I enjoy more of the experimental and cognitive psychology and the physical is also a part of your context and your environment. So that was to a lesser extent my areas of interest. And now prior to founding lean geeks, you know? I know that you work for a long time at two companies, but you also kind of alluded that you've worked for other places as well, but you worked at IBM for 7 years, which people know for big tech. And you worked at Lexus nexus for 8 years, which I know as a service that a lot of lawyers use, I believe, for background checks. And things like that. But with both of these work experiences, you were focusing on user experience. I'm not asking you to necessarily give the years, but I'm curious on during that time, how did you notice user experience in the design community?.
"fetal alcohol syndrome" Discussed on Parenting Roundabout
"Parents are talking about forever and always books that. Tell them how to do their job. Yeah yeah books. You guys used to be into parenting books. I mean we know everything now so we don't need them but but back in the days when our children were young and we were impressionable. I you know. I always had a shelf apparently books i've had some that i really liked and some that have helped me form my policy of take what you need. Leave the rest you know. Sometimes there would be a really crummy book. That would have one or two good insights and i would add it to the pile but then there's some that became bibles so i thought since we're trying to have our finger on the pulse of what parents are talking about right now. I thought one we take a look here at the beginning of a new year to see what the amazon bestselling books on parenting are and also amazon has a list of its most wished for items. I guess these are things people put on a wishlist. And see if you know if we're still if we're really with it about what parents are wanting to read right now. What authors are dishing out for parents to feel guilty about right now army to read right now and whether any of these books look familiar to us at all. I have not picked up parenting book. I think since. I when i wrote for about dot com. I used to reviews of parenting books. I read and read and read and read them and then once that stopped it was like but i still have many sitting around on red so turns out these bestsellers in parenting update every hour so when we looked at these listen prepared ourselves early this morning. Those books have changed. But i do notice with interest that way down on the on the bestseller list but a little bit higher on the wished for list is one of the books that i kind of considered a bible back in the day. Which is the explosive child by. Ross green you guys read that one. No not that one. It was that from that parenting period. Where every book was the black child. And it's right. This was very useful. I didn't like that the blank child format So much. But i liked that book. He had some really good Good tips for my son with Fetal alcohol syndrome and just kind of managing kids had trouble managing themselves so that was excellent..

"The Armstrong and Getty show. We'll start. California is deciding whether to recall Democratic governor and West world's top used car salesman Gavin Newsome, er 46 candidates are running against the current governor. Including businessman and candidate whiter than his background. John Cox Cox has been trying to make himself out to be a tough guy based on who is campaigning with The blitz began in the state's capital, with the 1000 plus pound burly brown bear by his side. All that tells me is that John Cox is so bland even a bear won't eat him. I know. He is a little bland. We'll be talking to Larry Elder next segment. Stay with us. Gavin Newsom is recalled in California. Larry Elder is going to be the governor. We'll talk to him in just a few minutes. So this is shocking. The source of it is shocking to all the sources just the statistics that exist out there, but the Atlantic is reporting on it. Our most reliable pandemic number is losing meaning. Well, if you look into the study, it lost meaning a long time ago, and many have been wrong all along the long and short of it, and I can get into some where the details, But the long and the short of it from the Atlantic is about half of the hospitalizations that you hear about our people. That have covid. But that's not why they're in the hospital and I use the example of my son was in the emergency room a couple of weeks ago, and he was in there for non covid reasons. They swapped his nose. If he had tested positive for Covid that would have been counted as a covid hospitalization, even though he wasn't there for at all. So you could be there for psychiatric reasons or a broken leg or who knows what But if they swab union test positive for covid that's counted as a covid hospitalization and up to half In some cases more they had to hospital where it was 57% of the people that were there. That quote tested positive for Covid, um or or covid hospitalizations. That's not why they were there. That is amazing. It is amazing, and this has been known for quite some time and what's really damaging about this is that a certain percentage of people hear that and say, See, I told you it's no big deal of it is a big deal. It's killed hundreds of thousands of people. There are hospital ICU departments that are full completely full. Of Covid patients. They can't take heart attack patients not everywhere, but it's in a few places. But, yeah, it's frustrating when you're misled, intentionally or unintentionally, over and over again. It makes you cynical. Yes, they use the example. Researchers have been trying to get at similar questions for a while. There was some studies published, Uh, doctors in California, reading through hundreds of charts of pediatric patients, one by one to figure out why exactly each covid positive child had been admitted to the hospital. Did they need treatment for Covid? Or was there some other reason for the admission like cancer treatment or psychiatric episode and the Covid diagnosis was merely incidental, according to researchers, 40 to 45% in that particular study, so almost half of the hospitalizations that they examined where for patients in the latter group Um Wow. And the question of kids vulnerability to Covid or the Delta variant is at the very heart of the decision. Open. Schools are not lutely vaccinations mask mandates the rest the policy implications coming out of these hospitalization. Hospitalization numbers are that's the whole reason. Joe Biden gave that speech on Thursday. The whole the whole backing of your argument. For why you got to force people to get the vaccine. In this way is the hospitalizations and it turns out it's completely bump and also to me, the fact that they weren't keeping track of this on a chart from the beginning was on purpose. Had to be on purpose. I would've been easy. Obviously, we've been asking this question on our show, and we're not geniuses. We've been asking this question on our show for a year and a half. I mean, lots of on the text line in the email have been asking this that he died with Covid or of Covid. Are they in hospital hospital with Covid or because of covid, and they all they had to do is have a check box on the on the chart somewhere. Did this person come in because of Covid. Are they being kept here because of covid or not, But they didn't. I think on purpose because they didn't want to know that they wanted to be able to Blur these two things Well, there has been a tendency since the beginning in y'all know this to oversimplify to exaggerate to change messages just based on the idea that we're too dumb to take in nuanced information. You know, Jack's often used the example of women, you know if you have a glass of wine while you're pregnant, it's fine. It's not going to harm the kids not going to harm you. You're going to be perfectly fine. But medical America has decided you're way too stupid to hear that. If you have one glass of wine, you're going to swing down half a case and you're going to give your baby fetal alcohol syndrome. So your doctor will tell you don't drink. Do not drink in most cases. Well, it's been the same with Covid this year too stupid to handle the truth. So we're going to scare you and or, you know a cattle you into doing what we want. It's frustrating, I'd say. Did you? Do you want to get into what they did that bigger study of adults? Um, I have it in front of me. But it was pretty clever. That was a, uh, that was with the kids. I can't remember what the number was. It was hundreds and hundreds of kids. It was a good, solid study, but to figure out what was going on with adults, they looked at the records the electronic records for nearly 50,000 hospital admissions. And more than 100 to hospitals around the country. There are all anonymous, obviously, but only looked at is what was your blood oxygen level. Was it above 94 or below, below Being the the benchmark for you have a severe covid case. And they found that because if you have 98% alcohol or alcohol, oxygen level in your blood, you don't have severe covid. You're there for some other reason. It's almost 100% certain anyway. They found from March through January march of 2020 through January. That the people who had mild or asymptomatic disease in other words, they were not there for Covid was 36% little bit over a third significant from mid January. Through the end of June of this year, however, that number rose to 48%. In other words, the studies studies suggest that almost exactly half of all the hospitalized patients showing up on covid data dashboards in 2021, trumpeted by CNN wailed.
"fetal alcohol syndrome" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"If they don't know they're pregnant By the six week most women don't know their pregnant by the six week they will be forced to have the child. So Brandon, that is absurd. That's how I justify it. Roxanne, how would you justify it? I totally agree in I will take it. One step further is that even if a woman is having a child that is going to have severe deformities on top of it, she has a right to make the best decision for her and it's you. It's the people that are out there that have the mindset that I get to tell you what to do. And you don't I I get to make that choice for myself, and I think that that's all any individual is asking is that let me have the right to make the choice as to what I do with my body. I don't justify it after week, 12, but I do justify it before. Week 12 for a number of reasons. Obviously, women should be able to make their own decision up and up until a point. In my personal opinion, I think that you have the factor in The the notion or just really, really the the fact that you can't find out about down syndrome until week week, nine week 10 and that's between week 10 and 13. You really find out about down to do I think that If having having a child with down syndrome can be extremely difficult for families, especially families that don't have a lot of money, And there's no support out exactly. I think if you have the fact that that's not being thought about enough obviously you have the situation with with the rape and incest, which should be including the bill, and it's not. You do have the medical exemption and then and then, really there was a lot of women who are pregnant after five or six weeks. They have no idea we're going to we're going to. We're going to see a massive increase. In fetal alcohol syndrome. We're going to see a massive increase in deformities work. I mean, imagine if there's been 60 60 million babies aborted in the last We'll call it 30 or 40 years. Imagine if half those babies were not aborted and they were and they were born to parents who were not who are not ready to be. Mothers were not ready to be fathers. They were not financially or emotionally mentally ready to be any of those things they were born in inner cities and the problem with crime. We have now imagine that imagine that increased by about 56%, because that's what would take place. If this law were were a nationwide thing, and I think that's a math. I think that's that's a major problem. So I know we have a lot of people on hold. I just want to go back to something real quick. The idea that because somebody is Christian, they're right and everybody else is wrong. Makes you a complete idiot. Every religion has different views. But guess what? I would never tell you to be Jewish. I would never tell you that All Jewish people are right. And everybody else is wrong. Your ignorance, sir to that lap to the caller. A couple callers ago said, Are you a Christian? Brilliant, You stupid idiot! Hold on. Let me just if I could, If I could just finish my thought for the person who called in a few college. God said, are you Christian Brian? You're a dope. And you're a bigot. And you're an a hole and every other word in the book because it's people like you that think your religion is right and everybody else is wrong. And that's why we've had wars all over the world. Now we have full and the same argument made that it's people like you that think that your politics are right. And everyone else is wrong. And the exact same thing you accused him of you are okay. So that is a stupid that Michael that's that's actually That's why calling someone stupid disliking Sadie simply thinking differently. A D is a slippery okay, so it's no slippery slope. I'm going to respond to what you just said, which, I think is absolutely ignorant. First of all, when somebody makes a statement in Roxanne wasn't here, I'll repeat myself again. When somebody makes a statement that is completely factually inaccurate, like and by the way, this has nothing to do with politics. You're wrong again on every level when somebody says Everybody that took the vaccination is going to die in three years. That is not a political disagreement. J. D that is factually inaccurate. That is number one when people talk about religion, and they talk about God Nobody knows who God is, for. Sure, Nobody knows. If there's heaven nobody knows if there's hell. Nobody knows if there's life after death that is called a belief. That's a belief system. What I am talking about is people with their beliefs Eft system. Let's say they're right and everybody else is wrong. It is not a belief when somebody says everybody who gets the vaccine is going to die within three years. That's not a belief That is a dope. I think, Roxanne. Do you understand where I'm going with that I do. And and I'd like to make like just a couple of comments on that When we start talking about religion, you know, I think what saddens me and I'll be the first to say is that I am a Christian and I fall short every single day, and I do believe in a higher power in life after death and and everything else that I I proudly stand on that, But it really sickens me here in America that we use religion when it's convenient for us when it fits a narrative, right? Us and those of us that call ourselves Christians want to be Bible thumpers and everybody else's face, telling them how wrong they are and what the Bible says. And those are the main people that are not following the teachings of the Bible that they say they believe in. So it's like we all make mistakes. We all have sins and we're all going to mess up, but you don't get the right to tell me well. I didn't mess up like this, So I'm better than you. Well, I didn't have this thought on this. So my my thoughts is better than yours, You know, leave the religion alone. If you're not going to use it in their exercise of the way it's supposed to be using exercise. And then J d made a point earlier, and he was talking about how many babies are going to be born with alcohol, Fetal syndrome and the drug babies that we have all the time. But what? You're also not taken into account that if a woman is going to terminate a present pregnancy, no law is going To stop her. What we're going to start finding is we're going to have a lot of women dying or having some real serious complications for life because some men are standing there telling us what we can't do with our body. We're going to do it anyway. Whether it's done illegally, whether it's done in a back alley somewhere, just like in the old days a long time ago. If they're going to get an abortion, they're going to get an abortion. One way. I think the law the timing of the law is just completely awful. And I think the law itself is pretty bad. I six weeks is far too early for all the different reasons we've been talking about. I do think that 12 to 13 weeks could be reasonable. I think anything after 14 15 weeks is 100% murder, I I firmly believe that Let's try to take one more call. Before we go. The The law itself is really put together very poorly and and it's it's a very It's a very bad strategic decision for Republicans, especially considering how with midterms coming up. Independence coming away, going away from Joe Biden. And now you just why? Why give them something to think about?.

"Samuel James Samuel told the story in Portland, Maine. For an evening we produced in partnership with the main public broadcasting network. The theme of the night was a leap of faith. I was 12 years old and I was In my third foster home and my very first father Foster father just called, and he called to say that he was very sorry to hear about my mother. Um, but what he didn't know is that nobody had told me that she was dead. So I was in foster homes because my parents drank. They weren't bad people I always felt loved. Um, but When they weren't drinking. They were better parents and they were drinking more and more frequently, and eventually people started to notice. I never noticed because I don't have another childhood to compare it to. So when I got taken out of my home, I was very confused and very upset. Um And when I found out that she had died, I just Got empty, You know, just hollowed out. And then when no one else called to say that she had died. Is when I started to get really angry, you know, like Burn the world angry And being a kid, a black kid in foster homes in Maine and burn the world Angry There's not a lot of foster homes that wanna hang on to you for very long. So I started going through them pretty quick. Um I learned the magic number was five. If you get to five foster homes, your march and people don't want to hang on to it all anymore. You're trouble so you can't get placement and you are homeless and then you go into shelters. Shelter. You can only stay in for 30 days and you're on to the next and on to the next. This is affectionately called the Shelter Shuffle. So the education you get in the shelter is nothing to mention. When I was a little little boy, I remember my father telling me that because I am black, I will have to be twice as smart as the smartest white man in the room. To get recognized. Half assed, much so education was always a very important thing to me. So I knew I had to straighten out. So when I was 14 and I got my seventh foster home I knew I had to hang on to this for dear life, no matter the cost, So I get to my seventh Foster home. The caseworker drops me off. Bring all my stuff into the room. My room, which was in the basement there, almost always in the basement. Hands. I'm really nervous because I don't want to mess this up. So I go up onto the porch and I light a cigarette. Mm hmm. You're ahead of me on this one. The foster father comes out and then it hits me that maybe this man that the state has put in charge of me might have something to say about this. But it doesn't Instead, he leans on the railing with me. Lights his own cigarette. And I think this is beautiful. This is just me and him watching the sunset over the pines Beautiful, beautiful and he turns to me and he says. Yep. Never had no problem with colors. Yeah, And I think well with an attitude like that. How could you? So this man, it turns out wasn't the prince. You might think he There was another foster child there and he was 12 years old and he had fetal alcohol syndrome. And this man like to torture him, And this man also had a dog who was old and dying, and he liked to kick this dog. It wasn't going well, and it becomes this frustration where this is your life, and you can't do anything about it. You can't help him. You cannot. The dog can help yourself. It's like you're starving to death. And there is one source of food. Mrs Apple down between these rocks and you can reach your hand in and grab it, but you can't pull it out while holding it. And this is your life but on the bus to school There was this cute little brunette sitting by yourself nose in the book named Jenny, and that was usually what I would do. So one day I asked her if she wanted to be loners together. Yeah. She left. And I have to tell you that it is so great to have somebody in your life who laughs. So I'm talking to you on the bus every day and pretty soon we're talking every night on the phone. That's going really well. But back at the foster home, things were going worse and worse and worse. And there's this family foster family get together dinner party and during this, the Foster father blows up at me, and he calls me a black bastard in front of everybody in the room. It wasn't the first time I've heard racial slur out of his mouth. But it wasn't that it was the rage in his voice. And it was the fact that it was a room for the people. And it was the fact that when I looked At every pair of eyes in the room. They all just went to the floor. Was abandoned and completely alone and nobody had my back. And this is when the panic sets in where It's finally too hard to stay. I have to go. So the next morning my caseworker drops me off at the shelter. And at this point I'm completely accepting of this because I'm not going to get an eighth foster home. Is very clear. I'm not going to make it three more years at this place. So this is the best I'm going to do. But I take my a lot of phone time at night and I still call Jenny and I don't tell her where I am. Because I just lost my One chance to go to college. I just lost because I moved so much I've lost every friend I've ever had, including her. She just doesn't know it yet. And as long as I can keep her on the phone She won't But eventually it slips out. And I can't remember what She said. I don't I can't think of a reaction. I just remember Getting empty again and hanging up. And I waited the next week to call her. And almost immediately. She has the phone to her father. Now, at this point, I've had a lot of conversations in my life about Don't call the house again. Don't come by here. You're a bad influence. Home, but that's not the conversation. I have. What he says to me is, Would you like to come live with us? Now, when I tell you that you need to understand that my relationship with Jenny had been on Lee on the phone or on the bus. She never been to my house. I've never been to hers. And her father who I'm talking to right now had never even met me. You've never seen my face. The first contract we're having is right now on the phone. So when he asked me if I want to do this, my visceral gut reaction is hell. No, because I have actual blood relatives that did not take me in When I went into foster care no family had ever done me any good..

Um, you know, my dude Kenneth, I talked about it from time to time familiar with the guys. The friendliest grocery store employee. Get the most sincere that an enthusiastic that I've ever met in my life, and I've written a couple of e mails to the corporate about because he's just that good, right? So today at the at the gym, I was on the elliptical and I was thinking about how hard I was in our first caller yesterday. It was like he said that I denigrated all Eminem's like and and to be accused of something like that. You just have to understand. To be accused of something like that, as an Eminem, not just Eminem enthusiast. I've been an Eminem stand even before I knew it standing wasp, but But like I said yesterday, What he got was all on me. Because I felt like I opened the doors of cruelty on him because I had already buried him or attempted to. By the time he brought up the Eminem's, so I just I'd like if I'd like to apologize to that gentleman. I'm sorry for what happened here yesterday. I wouldn't let you apologize yesterday and I won't let you apologize today. You You may have set a tone by working a little stiff with the guy. But I will take full credit for the guy accusing me of saying on the radio that I didn't like Eminem's I Love M and M's and to think that Just because I don't care for the most foul and vile and putrid Eminem that being the peanut M and M to think that I don't like all Eminem's it hurt me. So I unloaded on the guy with full fury, Mike I mean over the top wink and a nod venom but still that I'm none less right. And then a couple of namby pamby was his call up after him like You will meet the first village. One cold meat. You know you're you're mean, you know, and the oak maybe you're winking.

You know, it was a hard on that guy that people like it. I don't know, Whatever this stuff, I think about one watching the Americans on the elliptical and I go next door and I get my things at the grocery store and I don't see my dude. And then I'm leaving and I see him walking, you know, to retrieve some cards from the parking lot, and I go Friday, and because I like, you know, it's Friday and he turns around, he said, Man, I didn't know you were coming into that. I didn't think I'd see you, but I'm sure glad That I did. That dude definitely said all Eminem is just so you know, and I was like, Thank you s I said they got they got to come. Correct right. Like they can't stepped to me with that wack nonsense. They said you're definitely right. You've got to establish your dominance. So either he's an enabler. Or he enjoys quality radio like that, John. I was thinking maybe we could break down the tape break that I don't have it right this second, but it's loading. And I think maybe if we just listen to it for a second and let Mike a judge, like I don't think we need to re live the event. I would like to hear it, though, baby, I mean, you can on your own time.

I mean, those we can all relate to something like this, because when you log on and you see a news story, and it's got a missing and endangered adult And you recognize that adult?
