Eating the Foods Your Genetic Background Needs With Dr. BJ Hardick
"I know you work obviously with different clients. All over the place in your clinic is in london ontario. Yes right and talk about your experience working with people and really helping them. Adapt more of a ketogenic and nate lifestyle using intermittent fasting. Things like that sure. Well the first thing just trying to move towards more of a ketogenic lifestyle when you're actually eliminating grains and sugars is even though there's a lot more awareness right now people still freak out when they're told you can't have grains you can't have sugar right and a lot of times people say well wait a second you know. These are foods of the earth. The mother nature gave us pineapples and oranges and pears. And all these things we tell those be bad for you. And i always go back to this and and i think first of all you have to recognize that people have different. Genetic backgrounds are gonna processed foods differently They're going to have different types of metabolism. Some people based on where they're where they're from the world may do better with one type of food than another but in principle when you think about the higher sugar foods and the ones grains that turn into sugars. You know the reality is you know. I'm a northern caucasian. I would not be from a part of the world are pineapples are growing year round saying well what would my culture have thrived now it starts to get a little dicey when through the years. Go on twenty two in me and you find out that five percent this. I said it's not always necessarily black or white. So i do believe in listening to your body and seeing how you should in the first place but the first thing is when you tell people to eliminate these foods that they could. Actually you know a mother. Nature's foods are god's people say well that's not right because i'm supposed to eat those tax and the reality is you have to also differentiate not just. How's your body's supposed to eat but are you really trying to deal with some type of illness or a disease because there are certain illnesses that can do better under certain diet programs even though those changes are associated with the cause of the best one for example is sealy people if need gluten but consuming. Gluten doesn't cause ceac right so same thing with you know if somebody has information and they have gall bladder issues while they probably shouldn't have a ton of fat all at once but just eating fat. Your whole lifetime isn't going to give you those gallbladder so we could go on and on and on about that i. I had a friend who was dealing with cancer not consuming any fruit. Well we've never suggested that consuming fruit gave you the cancer. But we do know that getting into this state where your body's not having relied on sugar is going to benefit the immune system to help nutrition. Yeah exactly so so you have to look at it. I doing this for some clinic. Some clinical name. Or am i doing this because it is just the way my body was designed writers

The Bizarre, Incoherent Contradiction of 'the Pandemic of the Unvaccinated'
"A dawned on me as john. Edwards wrote this terrific piece in the new york post about the incoherent bizarre contradiction. You do realize that the whole point in calling this the pandemic of the unvaccinated the whole point insane we've gotta protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated. The whole point of the poor little old lady shrieking at me in the elevator the other day because she's got her mask on and i don't and she's vaccinated is that they don't believe in the effectiveness of the vaccine. That's the dirty little secret. They don't believe the vaccine works. And frankly with all the cases rising. I can understand people thinking that now. What we got to remember is if you're vaccinated. You're not likely to wind up in the hospital. If you get covert and you're vaccinated. That's the point of the vaccine was to prevent severe illness and death. And if you accept the ninety nine percent number. The people of the people dying from kobe today. Ninety nine percent of them are unvaccinated. You may not accept that number and that's okay you get to accept you can reject accept whatever you want to accept if you agree that most people who are dying of cogan are unvaccinated than that should give you some comfort in believing that the vaccine works but not joe biden as john says. How do you start out. Saying i'm going to protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated but don't worry fully vaccinated. People are incredibly low risk. This is a cluster. This is a disgrace.
The Ongoing Health Costs Associated With 9/11

It was december thirty first. Two thousand six new year's eve. He went to bed that night filling healthy but when he woke up the next morning i literally had swollen limbs swollen ankles all my joints were inflamed by body kind of blew up to like twice the size. It was a pulmonologist figured out that he had a rare autoimmune disease called sarcoidosis that was attacking his skin and joints and told him he'd gotten it from breathing in toxins. The material that responders and survivors were exposed to when the towers collapsed was quite toxic. Dr michael crane treats a lot of nine eleven first responders through the world trade center health program clinic at mount sinai so huge huge burning buildings collapsing. Everything inside is burning and it collapses down into a pile and then an enormous. Dust cloud a lot of firefighters. Police officers and others at ground zero started getting sick almost immediately. I with what they called the world trade center cough then. Ptsd and depression. And eventually years later cancers this exposure has a really really long tail anyone who develops any kind of illness linked to nine eleven can get free healthcare through the world trade center health program but michael bearish a lawyer for nine eleven survivors says there are likely a lot of people dealing with nine eleven related health problems.

"Do we balance not not having on because air subtle talked about having having the moderation of all things right so you don't want all of a sudden kind of drive on one hours of sleep and not wear your seat. You wanna be reckless right. And how do you balance that. Yes first of all this is good warning. How many people in twenty twenty and twenty twenty one of died of artifacts bronchial infections diabetes. We don't know. I've got doctors who've told me we don't know because everything has been labeled and wrapped around cova for example that fear factor has skewed everything we've had scientists tell us we won't know the data regarding the future. It messes up everything but having said that what are we afraid of. I'm afraid of getting it. Are you afraid of getting diabetes. Do you watch what you eat. Are you afraid no no afraid of those things it has been so talked up and i'm not look it's a. It's a very very serious illness. I get it but it's not the only illness that's out there.

Do you know jesus christ. This fear should be driving you to church not away from church jack. A love of the world or for the world yeah. That's what i'm saying. Is that like for example. Bob in the nineteen sixties. We had a pandemic and we handled it totally differently. Do you think people are more attached to the world. Then word yes. That's one of the reasons we reacted the way we did. Yes absolutely and it's it's sad and it's sadder when it's manifested in the pulpit and then the ministry where that's where the leadership should come from wishes steer them through the waters of crisis

Unvaccinated California Teacher Infected Half Their Students With Covid
"Joy of going back to school for kids is only matched by the anxiety. Many parents are feeling about sending them at a time. When pediatric cova cases have increased exponentially with over a fivefold increase from july to august as a parent of three children about start school not yet eligible to be vaccinated. I have to say. I do take quite a bit of solace in the uae body of data. We have so far indicating that children already significant lower risk of serious illness cova compared to adults but no one wants their kid giving coveted and things really hit home when i came across a report released by the cdc earlier this week. On a case in marin county california from may where an unvaccinated elementary schoolteacher infected with delta variant spread the virus to have the students classroom seating. An outbreak eventually infected twenty-six people. The teacher taught for two days. Well symptomatic and before getting tested which itself not recall during which time she read aloud without a mask to twenty four students everyone the front row tested positive which fell to eighty percent in the first two rows in the back. Three rose twenty eight percent of students test positive. You can see how it diffuses through the class. There and unvaccinated teacher dropped her mask despite rules. Schools to wear masks endures within days. Half for class was positive for the virus at a school. That had been conscientious about falling kobe. Protocols
The History of Smallpox
"Smallpox is a viral disease that has existed for millennia when it was circulating in the wild it spread from person to person through the air usually through face to face contact and it can also be spread through contact with contaminated objects and surfaces people who contracted smallpox typically developed a high fever and body aches and that was followed by a distinctive rash. There are two different strains of the very ola virus that were causing smallpox areola major and burial a minor now that name suggests burial a major caused more serious illnesses as many as a third of people who were infected with very all the major died. As many as ninety percent of babies died it was also particularly lethal anytime. It was introduced somewhere that hadn't existed before such as when european started arriving in the americas and in those cases smallpox usually killed about half the people who contracted it among the people who survived the disease. Smallpox could also be both disabling disfiguring. There was and is no cure for smallpox so even as science and medicine progressed it continued to be deadly but it also had some traits that made it a good candidate for a worldwide ratification campaign. Smallpox was easy to recognize in diagnose unlike say the flu which can resemble a lot of other respiratory infections. Smallpox passed directly from person to person and only infected humans so there were no hidden reservoirs of the virus that could potentially start a new outbreak. That's different from something. Like yellow fever. Which also infects other primates and is transmitted by mosquitoes another plus wants. a person had recovered from smallpox. They were immune for life for a number of reasons. Smallpox outbreaks also tended to develop relatively slowly. Once people were contagious. They were usually also too sick to really leave home. So outbreaks tended to cluster around members of the same household and their immediate neighborhood and then once an outbreak was identified. Swift action could keep it from spreading very far and most importantly there was a way to this. -rupt transmission of the disease in this case a
What Is a Breakthrough COVID-19 Infection?
"Dr Deborah and Mulligan, professor at Nova Southeastern University's College of Osteopathic Medicine. She is board certified in pediatrics and emergency medicine as welcome our dear doctor. Good morning, Jimmy. Let's talk about little bit about breakthrough infections. I think I saw that about 83 85% of the people hospitalized in the state of Florida. Were not vaccinated, but there are some And that's the breakthrough infection. Right? That's what we call it. Tell us about this. Yeah, sure. So, you know, we had a really good vaccine driven strategy for the vaccinated. It was supposed to be a worry free, hot back summer of socializing and fun. That was before Delta. You know, this tough, formidable folks spoil their plans and rising covid breakthrough infections. Among fully vaccinated is a reminder that these vaccines are not a silver bullet. Nor is the mask a full proof invisibility cloak. So let's define what is the definition of vaccine breakthrough infection for our listeners. It's the detection of SARS Kobe to RNA or antigens. Collected from a person more than 14 days after they completed recommended doses of covid 19. So I have had patients who were diagnosed with Covid Illness, but they hadn't been fully vaccinated. So, for example, maybe you got the first shot. It was a week later, they hadn't got their second shot. So Jimmy, these vaccines are intended to prevent severe illness. That was the end point, and they're doing that. They were not intended to prevent spread 100%, although they were pretty marvelous until you know Delta came along. These vaccines are working as expected there, bolstering memory B cells, protective D cells and antibodies to protect us from severe disease. They're doing that.

Food Allergies in Children with Dr. Kenneth Bock
"Talk more about food allergies. This is an interesting thing to delve into talk. Abo- how often you'd see people with these back in the day. He talked about this this patient back when you gave that lecture that you already working with with autism and then how commoner they these days how is that changed over the years. Well i think they're more common There's there's actually food allergies which is a classical food allergy reaction Kind of more like the immediate strawberries. Get hide so to speak And then there's more delayed reactions food sensitivities which are different than denies to. They're usually they can be very very disguised because it can happen later. It doesn't happen right away. but and so i think the incidence of allergies has increased because the immune systems. Our kids have gotten skewed. And i'm happy to talk a little bit that sufficient second because i think it's contributed but So there's more and more issue's gi issues especially in the partition population. But certainly all these kids with mood. Disorders anybody with a chronic illness whether it be physical or neuropsychiatric. But what have you. You have to look at the gut and that when there are problems in the gut that can contribute in the microbiome The good the good bacteria in the gut that could contribute to immune imbalances skewed immune systems and more food allergies and also food sensitivities. Where you know where if you have a permeable gut lining you. Don't you lose the integrity of the gut. Lining keep certain things out especially large molecules. They get in tight. Junctions get opened up. These large molecules getting the immune system. Seventy to seventy five percent which lies right under the this one layered epithelium in the gut allows these molecules to getting immune system sees them and they reacting appropriately with an immune reaction to something that they should be reacting to food. And so whether you get a food allergy reaction Action and. I do believe that this is. There's no question has been happening. More and more. We see it more. And more i think disruption to the microbiome the microbiome is that correction of the microorganisms got trillions of bacteria other organisms that hopefully are in a healthy diversity a healthy balance but frequently unfortunately not and that also contributes to increasing food allergies.
CEO Joseph Maxwell Shares How Parlance Helped NYU Langone Health Improve Service Levels During the Pandemic
"So I want to share with you now a few examples of how parlance is working with some of the health systems that we've partnered with to deliver some of these great experiences to both callers and agents. And our first one is start with some work that we're doing with NYU langone. At the start of the pandemic, NYU langone was challenged to maintain effective staffing levels. Their operators were unable to consistently report to work, whether it was due to illness or their inability to leverage public transportation due to some of the travel restrictions when New York was in their lockdown. But we partnered with NYU langone to help improve and maintain their service levels to college in the midst of these varying staffing levels. By allowing college to simply just use their voice to naturally engage and get connected, we were able to shift the burden of managing those calls away from the operators and agents over to the modern IVR solution, which is always available. And though NYU langone is a large and complex organization, they have a lot of services and they attend to a broad array of patients. We were able to implement quickly and effectively for them. Today, call us can easily navigate to over 46,000 destinations within the health network. By just using their
Experiencing Network Marketing Month End Magic vs. Mania
"You can experience month end a completely different way without sacrificing your goal or your results because some people when i tell them hey you know what you don't have to hustle to get your results. Their brain kind of melts when they hear me say that because they assume when i say don't hustle they're assuming i'm saying slowdown stop working. Don't work so hard when really. it's about working from a different place. It's about being in a completely different state of mind in. It's about still doing the work and working smarter rather than harder. And i see most people default to working harder because they are in the month end mania rather than believing in the month and magic and when i say month and magic. I'm not talking about you. Take your foot off the gas pedal electro of the reins and you just decide. Everything's going to magically happen for you and you stop taking ownership of your actions. I'm not talking about that. I am talking about the magic that happens when you stay consistent. You work hard. You stay committed your goal no matter what you work on your mindset you work on your thoughts and your feelings and you trust in the inevitability of your goal. You will be shocked what you are capable of when you are working that way than opposed to a flurried at frenzy frantic energy that is completely freaking out about hitting your goal at the end of the month and this episode. Might be painful for you. But i'm gonna call out some really painful stories that you have been telling yourself that contributes to this month end mania when i chose the word mania because when i looked up the definition i'm not talking about mental illness. I am actually talking about There was there's a sub definition of it and the definition is an excessive enthusiasm or an obsession or fixation. And i think that is so spot on with how i see. So many people. At the end of the month it becomes this excessive over the top enthusiasm that they obsess over. It becomes this fixation in this obsession. Were occupy is all areas of their mind. And they're being.
U.S. Prepares for COVID Booster Shots
"Expected the need for Covid vaccine booster shots, despite their high rate of effectiveness against the virus, will now his prediction It's going through with the pandemic. Still raging Tim. We know that and variants putting more lives at risk, even those who have been inoculated this week, the Biden administration unveiled its plan for vaccine boosters starting in September for eligible recipients eight months clear of their second dose of the Moderna or fighter vaccines. My administration of planning for this possibility in this scenario for months We purchased enough vaccine and vaccine supplies. So that when you're eight month mark comes up Will be ready to get your vaccination free at booster shot free. We have it available now, Dr. William Haseltine is back with us to tell us what's next. When it comes to fight against Covid 19. He also lays out a plan to deal with the trauma that we've experienced throughout the pandemic. He's got another book out Carol, and it focuses on the effects of what he calls CV PTSD. I think it's very clear now, and that's why the government has moved to the way it is. It's very clear now. That to protect against serious illness where most people are going to need a booster they've pegged at about eight months. It's probably about right for most people. For people who are older, It's probably a little shorter than that. Six months will do. And so I would stand by my statement that six months from my last vaccine, I'm certainly planning to get it out of booster and and I think the government official recommendation now is every adult Get a booster beginning eight months from the last vaccination. This isn't magic. This is
Rabbi Yehudah Glick on Building a Third Temple on the Temple Mount
"People are not allowed to pray on the temple mount. So i'm allowed to visit but i'm i'm theoretically not allowed to pray. Is this rule changing or changed. I know you are working.

And i think it's important that your listeners. Listen to this. Revolutionary thing that does is leading together with me. Tim foundation look for we get to that. Just give me quickly. Are you advocating rebuilding the temple building a third temple. And where is that just briefly. Because i'm just trying to no it's not. I am not advocating. The bible advocates talks about building a house of prayer for all nations. We want the one only god his he has one. His name is one and we. Are we believe that.

We're all worshipping one god even though we're the verse in systems and the way he's not mean to be convinced that it should be there. I think it should be there. But i mean. Is this realistic that they would allow jews to build a temple on the temple. Mount strikes me as very difficult if i would ask you eighty years ago. Is it realistic. Jewish state will be established in the middle east. Never anthro

Okay how are you doing by the way. I'm doing all right i. I've had a rough couple of years. Because i had some Illness stuff and you know it's funny. I was having trouble describing the problems that i had but basically i had a post viral syndrome. And we're seeing that it's similar to what's happening with a lot of covid people who survive covert right now they they have these symptoms afterwards and that kind of happened to me where i got sick and then kinda didn't get better after that it just through my nervous system off so the last few years have. There's been a lot of changes for me with the with how i've sort of been handling everyday life because i you know i have a chronic illness and it's in much better shape than it was i. Things are much more under control. But i had you know like a year or two of of just dealing with these confusing symptoms before i finally found things that work and then i had another year after that of just depression and rage and frustration. Because i felt like i had been missing out on so much and because i had to kinda learn to live with it and that was that was a very difficult thing to deal with. It's it's hard to just completely your life like that and there's a lot of things i gave caffeine and alcohol and and those are things that i didn't know that i missed you know And it was so it was. It was a rough few years. I think a lot of learning experiences and a lot of meds changes and a lot of you know having very patient friends and family around me Be be good to me and care for me which has been great But yeah they they definitely have not been easy. And it's been unlike anything else i've ever dealt with in my life i've i've been very fortunate to have good health for very long time so it was kind of rocky it was kind of surprising and now i'm just doing what i hand to make sure that people know that these kinds of things can happen to them and unfortunately i think with kobe. We are seeing it and are going to continue to see it a much larger scale. I've a friend who got it very early on. He said his lung capacity is reduced by about twenty five percent and his hair falling out. Yeah i mean. I know people. Now who blood pressure problems who have brain fog. Who have who are.

That are like You know they're they're like panic attacks but they're even worse. I would say there. I feel paranoid. I feel shaky. I it's like. I described them as like walking down a dark alley by yourself at night after drinking a triple espresso while on an edible yes. I don't think that's specific enough. You i just feel like. I was in a restaurant or a cafe once. They had halloween decorations up. And this was a year or two ago. And i had some caffeine and then all of a sudden like i felt like the walls were closing in on me and the things around got legitimately scary and i had to. I had to like run out the door. And and i had this like at endive. I've talked to doctors about it and they're like yeah it has to do with nora ephron and your body overcompensating when your blood pressure is low and there's all this weird stuff that your mind and body do and you know i would. I would have like a glass of red wine and burst into tears. Because you know. I couldn't feel my hands and fingers anymore and i couldn't yeah and i and i and i was panicking and i think anxiety on top of that definitely did not help but i told them i was like i told doctors i was like i've had anxiety disorders for as as long as i can remember and giving speeches on and this doesn't quite feel like anxiety feels a little different and then finally people who knew about the system. We're like we're like. Yeah that that happens. It's because of blood pressure and is because of Nor catherine and it's it's actually pretty basic and Uncomplicated and so yeah. And that's that's been a major adjustment adjustment in my life. I don't know if this will help. But when you find yourself about to faint try putting the back of your palm to your forehead and say oh my you know. I've now found like the good places to faint in the bad places to faint like the bad places to faint. I think a bookstore once and they just kind of walked around me but then i fainted in a health food store once and and people were very nice and they gave me water and salt water and i was like okay now. I know now know where to and we're not too and that was something that happened to me. I mean i happened to me like actually before. I got sick and happened to me like five years ago. I think i.

"The majority of your advocacy is from the you know I hate to say caregiver but from the family member from the mom who was advocating for her son can you can you kinda. Give that story sure a lot like your story ramp sure no one gets an wakes up and goes. I want to be a press. It started when my son Tim who he twenty five in a week or so now was four years old. We knew that there was something going on. We just weren't quite sure it was we started going through with doctors and neurologist and neuropsychologist therapists and and everything else long story short after several different diagnoses and all kinds of issues he ended up in his first psychiatric inpatients day at the age of eleven when he attempted suicide and doctors there said well. Nobody wants to tell you is that your son has schizophrenia and I said No. He doesn't kids kids. Don't have it and I couldn't believe it and then ticks player who tried to tell them stuff again and I went okay. Obviously we have a problem here and so at that point the advocacy was personal it became what do I need to do to make sure that my child is getting the best possible and I can try and give him a life and adult life because at this point you know you worry about whether your kids even make it so that kind of morphed into into all kinds of things when you have a child especially with a serious mental illness. It really does become a family disease. everyone's affected parents are affected. Siblings are very effective affected. I've ruined the fact that so when I started doing my advocacy work and then I found other parents are struggling with the same kind of things we were trying to figure out I started sharing information and started in my blog and getting people to help share their stories and we basically built this. I I ended up buildings community of parents who were all trying to help each other because not even our clinicians really could help us very well because it's pretty rare. I mean there's about one hundred children in the US every year Daddy Marshall Charlton what's so we're a small fraternity that is is very small even if we go with every single child who's diagnosed with mental illness. That number is very small. It's bigger than the hundred but it's still still very small walk and of course we've all heard it said a thousand times in the mental health community mental illness is not a casserole disease when people hereabouts knock like this they they avoid and and here's the question that I want to ask specifically because I hear this all the time and I do not have children and I am not a mom but did people in your community blame. Claim your son's illness on you because you always hear that society blames MOMS for Mental Illness. Yeah well for us a little bit different because Timothy is also adopted so a lot of what we got was and no joke people would say well. There's an obviously because he's a product from his birth parents. Why don't you just return him. Where wait what yeah he's not a toaster. It's not like you know Jesus toasters toasting right anymore. I'M GONNA take it back to manufacture. People would literally say to us because he was adopted. Obviously obviously it's not our fault. It's something weirdly genetic with his parents background and whenever maybe we should just go you know not get kid so complicated. Wow was just stunned me yeah. It totally stunned me but I'll tell you what really did happen their neighbors and people at school and stuff what they wanted with their kids to stay away from him because they were worried that he was he was dangerous or radic and that's the thing whenever you hear about schizophrenia. Your mind always goes to insert horror movie here right so oh you got little kids. Were like Oh my God. He's got his terrible disease or a split personality which is a half world still thinks that's what it is. You know we need to keep our kid away from him and it's hard for children children anyway because anything that makes a child different bullying is a real thing and and clicks form and but now your son is in a position where he he could definitely use support and use friends and use understanding but of course he's not getting it because kids are being children but then there's another layer her parents are influencing their children's behavior and I just I struggle with that idea so much that apparent would tell their children don't play with another child because because they're sick. This is so scary that's the problem that they don't see them has sick what they see it as and this is why a lot of parents get blamed they see a personality defect right or behavioral. Savior of defect. It's like a kid. He's not spoiled. He's got an illness but you know and I don't know if you know this but when was originally founded it was founded by a group of parents MOMS in particular who were tired of being blamed for their children's getting ready. You've Nami Mommy's. Yep so that's how I got started and you know it'd be great to say that there had been progress since they started started this in the early seventies but there has been very minimal progress and it's not just the public the worst thing we fight against as well as a lot of clinicians. Don't understand it especially especially in children because they're such a behavioral component. You know it's so hard to diagnose the child because when my child throws a temper. Tantrum is it because he's trying not to listen to the voices. There's an aside or is it because he's frustrated or is because he's a kid. How did you as a mom decide when the Tantrum occurred. How did you personally make that determination. it was difficult to tell and because it was difficult to tell we start treating them all the same thing with him. It was easy to figure out was if he would escalate it quickly. It probably was because of illness if he was just mad because you know we weren't having Spaghetti O's for dinner that was something easily diffused and he wouldn't escalate it would be easy needed to track him down so I would start talking him slowly trying to understand what was going on Ted and if kept on escalating real problem we had feel but initial you don't own especially with the kids you have to start treating them all the same and that's the hard part especially you know imagine how to build a grocery store. How do you explain this to people while you're sitting there saying hang okay. Let's sit down and come and talk about what's going on and everyone is looking at you like you're crazy raise so take a step back. You said that you could tell something was wrong as early as four but then he wasn't diagnosed until he was nine. Is that correct well. His first diagnosis was at the age of four and at that point they didn't know whether it was an autism spectrum disorder or emotional disorder order so he basically had this diagnosis called. PD which is pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified and from there he transitioned through several so then it went you okay. It's definitely not attractiveness emotional snow. It's emotional disorder on otherwise specified in the navy. It's bipolar disorder or maybe it's bipolar disorder wine or maybe two or maybe it's about with psychosis blah blah blah kind of kept going you know when they finally started with schizophrenia. It was a doctor who had been consulted with the therapists and therapists had been residents but she was positive schizophrenia and he just basically blurt out. What were the specific. What were you witnessing. What was your son doing. He had a couple of different things that were pretty routine so he he had some which now we know our delusions of course now we use a clinical term mccollum delusions but he had some weird idiots secrecy like he couldn't put water on his face because something horrible what's going to happen his face. I don't know where it's going to melt them or whatever but you could never put water chase. He would have conversations with nobody. Talking can long complex conversations with people like when I'm driving and he's sitting behind me in the heron back of my neck would stand up because he's having a huge Harry conversation with no one's there. He had very little outward emotion. He wasn't very happy. He was never very sad. He was just kind of flat right. So now we know clinically they call that flat affect and when he had anxiety about all of this going on he had an incredible rage on my husband and I were actually trained when he was eight years old and how to do a therapeutic whole because he was so strong well. Here's an example at the age of eighty took one of those kid desk with the chair attached to it and lifts up over head and throat at a teacher. Oh so he was pretty strong so we actually were trained and by clinicians on how to do with therapy to call because if we didn't he could literally hurt himself for one of us but the rage was the parts dealer so now you're faced with all of this you've got the doctors. You're you're doing all the right things. You're advocating for your son. We could probably talk for hours upon hours. How difficult it is to find the right care the right treatment the great clinicians but moving all of that aside. Let's talk about medication. ooh. Did you choose to medicate your child because it's debated a lot. It is so initially we didn't medicate our child because the last thing you WanNa do is and it's the prevailing thought out there is gonNA. Put this poison into my kid but it got to the point point where there's several hospitalizations I mean he had sixteen hospitalizations between the ages of eleven and fourteen so you get through the first three or four hospitalizations. You finally realize realized that you can't do this just with behavioral interventional. I mean you know we didn't want to put the poison into so we started very slowly and we wanted to start with Disney in a mood stabilizer does need an antipsychotic got. It can start working with the doctors to try and create whatever the cocktail is. That's right but every time you put these pills into your kid a little part of you inside because you're thinking and I hear this a lot from other parents. The number one thing they say is when they have to give their kid meds or in the hospital is that they've failed as a parent. It's self stigma and that's the hardest part and it's a cliche and we all say it's like if you have diabetes. You wouldn't feel bad giving them insular but it's really true. My kid has a brain disorder not a Brat not a behavioral behavioral issue. He has a illness in his brain and if I can give him medication that helps settlements in his brain. Let him live the life. You know most fulfilling as possible then. That's what we decided we had to do..

"You know what I mean? It's all of that is on top of also living with mental illness. And I just wanted to. I just wanted to to to point that out because some people feel. Like, oh, you know, I'm making too big of a deal about living with mental illness. No, it's a fucking pain in the ass. Sometimes. Yeah. Complicated. It certainly can be. You know, I don't mind the stigma. I don't feel I have a stigma. I mean, I felt it actually probably helped my career. In fact, I used it that episode that I had I used in this HBO digital series that I did. And that was one of the, you know, one of the arcs of the show was me getting out of the hospital and getting my life back together and getting back on TV scripted. No, I mean, it was scripted react. We call it sketch -ality scratch scripted reality based in reality. But just kind of a recreation with a lot of them. Yeah. Yeah. Comedic tones. But real stuff, my mom, my sister, and me, your actual mom and sister, you're they're in it. So it was like a it was actually technically a documentary, but it was on HBO. And it was I think it's still up there on their digital HBO, go, six fifteen minute episodes. But I didn't you know, because when I was in the hospital I felt like I was there. Because I made a mistake. It wasn't like something just snapped to me. It was that perfect storm not taking the meds. And then I felt like I was in there. And you know, my friends would come visit me, I, you know, they would they were cool, and I just felt like. It was like kind of a cool. Thank almost like this is a badge of honor. Like how many comedians? I'm sure there's a lot and a lot of them. Don't talk about it. But I was open talking about it. I think what made it easier for me is that when I was having the episode. I was on Twitter. So people were already aware a lot of people were at least that something was happening to me. So I kind of already gave them a heads up that something was happening. And then once I got in the hospital. I felt like, you know, already did this stuff on Twitter might as well just take it to the next level. Because. I felt I was in there because I stopped my meds cold Turkey now later on. I learned that. You know, maybe it would have happened. Anyway, you know, I've been now I go through therapy. Now, I have a therapist. Now, I have a die. You know, it's much more of a support system. Everything is in place. But it's taken a lot of time to adjust you only talk about mental illness being hard. I went from euphoria with. I was doing fine. I was I was fine for the most part then I had that episode. And then after it was just like a downhill, I became depressed. That was the real hard problem for me is becoming depressed. Nobody told me. Okay. Brody in which you have this manic euphoric episode you go to the hospital. They put you on different meds. You do some therapy. You'll be fine. Nobody warned me about depression, really come into get ya. And then dang Zaid eighty and then me personally living in a different situation. All the while. I was doing. Good things. My comedy was getting better. But there isn't that funny. Yeah. It was like I did Conan. I've been doing Chelsea I got a half hour. I shot the HBO show after I was out of the hospital. But I just wasn't feeling good. And I think part of that had to do with the medication that I was on. They switched up. My medication the situations. I was in and I had to you know, teach myself new habits. Stay busy in that's part of it. I mean, I did warm up for nine years. And I I was busy every day. And I'm sure people thought warming up for sitcoms talk like variety show Chelsea lately. A lot of shows at Fox Sports comedy, central pilots. Not sitcoms. Those guys make pretty good money.

And then I just want to read this portion of a shame and secrets survey filled out by. Woman who calls herself. Oh, have the might. How oh how the mighty have fallen and fallen and fallen and she is a survivor of sexual assault. She's not sure if she's ever been physically emotionally abused. She writes, my family, especially my mother, but my father to some extent has always been very invalidating of my feelings. No matter what I say. For instance, even when I try using is statements and being very calculated in how I address something they say that hurts my feelings. My mom will brush it off saying that I'm not describing reality. Then when I talked frankly about my experiences with mental illness symptom symptoms, my parents instantly, jumped to my quote defense saying that I'm perfectly fine and plenty of healthy people. Go to therapy. Even though I'm not category. An this is imperative. Disease. Even though I'm category. Categorically, not mentally well and have a handful of diagnoses to back that up. I've been resenting it so much lately ever since moving back home after graduating from college, and I'm terrified that. I don't actually know what reality is. And that is gas lighting that your mom is doing invalidating person's feelings it. You know, it's a really subtle way of making it about them by somebody not not hearing you out on what your reality is. When you're talking about your feelings. It's not like if you had said, you know, a mom when you put on that that you know that orange wig and you chase me around the house with baseball bat. You know, and and that never happened. That would be a time for your mom to say that you're not describing reality. And of course, it would be a great time to send you to see somebody. But. It was just it. It's a very narcissistic way for for somebody to react to a person who is trying to connect emotionally any positive experiences with the abusers. Sometimes my parents, and I get along fine. And I'm still financially dependent on them despite my best efforts. So I feel indebted to them. Let me say this as strongly as possible. No amount of financial aid to a child erases invalidating their feelings. Nine they're two completely different thing things in one does not balance out the other. Darkest thoughts despite being an extremely. Actually, I'm going to fast forward to what if anything you wish for sometimes I wish I could go into inpatient or intensive outpatient treatment. So my mental health could be my main priority, and I didn't have the option of not getting into the nitty gritty stuff. I encourage you so strongly to go do this. You are. So thirsty for a validating environment. Which in my opinion is the beginning of healing and having self compassion and making sense. Trying to. Survive in a gas lit environment. Is you know, it's like trying to sprint on ice. It's I encourage you to go do this, no matter what your parents. Say. And what might be good to is. They might be called upon come in for family night. And then you would have somebody there who. Can back up your reality. And. I think that would be really really great. And then any comments to make the podcast batter. Got I love this so much. There should be a survey that tracks how often people listened to the podcast while playing candy crush as a combo coping mechanism for being bed bound with the crushing weight of being alive.

There is something crazy about that. She was thirteen when she wrote her first suicide note, it was on a post it. She wasn't crazy. But succinct as fuck she wasn't crazy. Just honest. She didn't want to live. She got messy, and a friend found the note and called her mom, all her mom could say is why why why why why baby the words left her was she crazy, but she didn't feel crazy. They stripped her down like an animal took her shoelaces put her on suicide watch while she squirmed on an uncomfortable cop. She felt crazy then the psych ward for kids smelled like every hospital bleach with the stench of death and disappointment even in this place. There was psych ward hierarchy they separated the kids the frail looking teens never made eye contact..

"Are you comfortable sharing what your struggles were more specifically? Sure. Yeah, I grew up in an environment. Well, first of all, I have a genetically loaded family history on both sides with mood disorders, psychotic disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar. And kind of didn't realize that until I was in medical school, and you're learning about the genetics of mental illness like, whoa, that actually that that wasn't really part of the situation, but grew up in a family where achievement is really everything defines the children in that family. You are? Yes, yes, conditional love or at least conditional praise. Right, right. And so. I majored in piano performance in college, knowing I was going to go onto met of you. You said it. All right there. You said it all. What's the next thing? I did recital. Okay. Crazy. Yes. Yes, perfectionist. Right. All of that and worrier. Yeah. And you know, that's that's medicine, draws us sort of highly driven perfectionist, dick dot every I and olitical, but also caring and identifying with being a caregiver, not needing help ourselves. So a lot of this is a setup for many, many healthcare professionals. And in my case, it sort of culminated in that classic feeling of. I was so unaccustomed to being in the middle of my class in medical school it, it triggered lots of fears and basically like a growing sort of continuous panic that I'd be failing out at any moment based on anything in particular? No, I did very well. I could tell, but that is what goes through a person's head who's in that situation. And it came to such a culmination that I took time off, and I actually was thinking I needed to leave and drop out of medical school because this was certainly not. I didn't think I was competent enough to become whatever it is that that was happening try you're trying to become in medical school. And fortunately I had a dean who said, no, take time off. And comeback and check in on a quarterly basis while ended up taking a year off and getting treatment, and that experience of therapy was life changing because essentially when you when you figure out what those internal voices that are so punitive and perfectionist stick and you don't apply them to anyone else, but your zone know if somebody talked to you the way we talked to ourselves, you would get a restraining order, right? And really just, you know, getting some clarity about that. It was. You know, they say that psychotherapy is more effective when there is a time constraint. And I had to make a decision about whether I was going back to medical school within a few months. And so it sort of accelerates the process of the motivation to figure things out. So were the specific thoughts and executives, and how did they present themselves? Was there suicidal Ita Shen. Some, but not that wasn't the most prominent. It was more of a feeling of if I am not and fill in the blank in my case, top of my class, feeling secure. Perfect. Then I might not be worth breathing air and taking space on this planet. I mean, it's that illogical irrational, but I think again, I what I learned after my own experience is that these kinds of negative distorted thoughts are incredibly common. And of course more common if there's a mental health condition that's shaping your brain and your thinking that kind of distorted thinking, but it's extremely common even without a mental health condition. And especially if we were raised in homes where there was for lack of a better term, emotional poverty, you know where it was. There was love, but there wasn't any kind of script for how to express feelings or feelings were deemed to be messy or uncomfortable or weakness and who wouldn't run into their head..

We have links to all this shit and ways to help the podcast on not on our website. I was. I was just came from my support group meeting about half hour ago and. We were talking about compartmentalizing things, and it's funny how this plays out too, because as you hear Jake's story, he towards the end of his interview shares. How it came to a head, his years of compartmentalizing the horrors of being in the troubles, both on the receiving end of the violence and oppression and on the end of, you know. Attempting to kill British soldiers. And I was thinking about. It's interesting sometimes how we don't realize that something we buried is painful because when we compartmentalize it, it takes a dulled. Uncomfortable quality that doesn't feel like pain. And I think that's why. We compartmentalize it. You know why our brain does that is so that we can keep functioning. But there's also the danger that because it's just kind of dull, restless, empty feeling. We never give credence to the fact that we might be bearing something that was actually traumatic. And so for many of us, we go decades without. Even thinking to mention these things or bring them up because they don't feel like a, you know, a fire burning inside of us. So we think it's something else. We think our life is just unsatisfactory or we're a piece of shit, or you know the future is just doom and gloom for us. But in my experience. Those can be the repercussions of compartmentalizing ourselves and then finding things to distract numb us acting out sexually drinking shooting drugs being a work Hollick, you know, being a love addict, all of those things distract us. So it's like the compartmentalizing, and then the distracting. Are the two things that we really need to face. I think to be able to clean out all the shit that backs up inside though some motionlessly as we get knocked around in life. But once we feel that pain. And that and that trauma is processed, it's so freeing to be on the other side of it because then it's easier to be present and to connect more deeply to people. And I just wanted to share those those thoughts with you. So I hope you enjoyed this episode with with Jake who is a former IRA soldier slash volunteer, whatever term you want to use for it. And. I want to lead into that with an awful moment filled out by a guy who calls himself gash Lee, chrome, tiny, and he writes, my alcoholic mother and stepfather abused me physically and verbally throughout my childhood. One of my earliest memories age, three or four is of my mother's screaming at me on Christmas morning about how horrible I was because I had woken up early and open some presence. Christmas is still really hard these days it got worse after that, they unpredictably lost their tempers. And battered me in between there were frequent threats to kill or abandoned me. Anything could trigger their rage about twenty years ago. I wrote to my mother asking for an apology and approach. And a promise that she would never again harm another child. I had concerns that she might hit my sister's kids. I warned her that if she didn't make CRA promise, she would never hear from me again. She replied, but there was no apology or promise. Instead I got excuses in sly digs just recently, I found out that my mother has website offering holistic counseling. There's a part of me inside that..
