"We're covering the things that we haven't gotten to really mean to get to man that feeling that you know that that feeling that it needs scratched of wanting to get around to stuff. You know my desk and I really thought for sure since I'm not traveling that I would. I would get it taken care of. And I started I was down like a couple of inches of paper bilge that builds up on my desk. I was down a couple inches. Yes, I'm going to see the surface of this desk before before. This virus releases us from its grip, and now it's super building back up again. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, it's frustrating. I! Do want to point out. Somebody has gotten something done. which is that Tony Anita? Hull took the initiative and went and ask our listeners before we recorded this show what they haven't gotten to or have been meaning to get to in their lives. And so with that in mind, I wanNA, bring Tony Anita Hill up to the Mike Tony on double duty this week. We have another thing for you later. What's on, but this one? You don't have to wear a pep blows for what's on the hot sheet. What our listeners saying? They haven't done to okay so Stephanie. Lundgren wrote I moved right before the stay at home order and I thought for sure I'd be completely unpacked and organized by now. I've been working from home, so it's not at all free time, but still. I See Oh Yeah. Oh that's the worst feeling as a person who struggles with OCD not being unpacked. I, have to tell you Stephanie. I think I was in one house for twelve years before I unpacked the last box. There's always a one box. That just has stuff that you probably never should have brought with you from the last place. Just. Couldn't you just couldn't think it and say goodbye, and so you still have it? And just sits around in a box for Twelve Years Until the cats pee in that box. That's usually that's usually what motivates we. We have a similar problem in this household and in some ways. It's worse because we bought this house. I'm going to say eight or nine years ago. and. We were living in an apartment before then and literally three weeks before we were supposed to leave the apartment and moved into. This house a pipe behind. Washing machine in our apartment burst, the whole place flooded dip fire department had to come and because of the water remediation. Process we weren't able to pack up our old apartment to move here. That had to be done by professionals. Wow! I didn't know there was such a thing. And some of those boxes were some. are still in our garage. Things wet, so you have boxes of wet belongings in your. Oh, you got to get those out you can. Boxes of wet belonging like a growth of mold. Bax Airs what you got. No, no, it's not the belongings. Themselves weren't wet. I want to point out that the flooding apartment wasn't like knee deep or anything, but it was A. Damaged the floor and stuff like that. No, that was a big flood I. Remember that I. Remember finding you and Jeannie. In the middle of the apartment in a tiny ship. And the Terni should talk to. Our tour! Wow So. There were professional packers. What does that have to do with the fact that you didn't open the boxes and take the stuff out I mean? Did it matter who put it in the box? Did you guys say to each other? It's not touched that professional packers put it in. No movers, the movers were allowed into put everything into boxes. My point is that because we didn't have time to pack up our own apartment all the crap that we were going to get rid of ended up being transferred to our new house. And you just haven't got around to. Condie, what was what was it? Marie CONDIE ING it. I didn't Murray Condo. It yet Maury Condo. What is it Tony is it? It's Murray Condo.

Don't @ Me: The Story Behind Twitch's $25 Million Sex Addiction Lawsuit

"So recently twitch was served a twenty five million dollar lawsuit by Guy Dealing with a severe sex addiction. Basically he believes that the hundreds of women streamers he follows, makes his sex addiction worse in. It's all twitches fault. Yeah this story is as crazy as it sounds. Let's get into it. Guys were streaming over at twitter DOT TV. Slash the score e sports, and we're adding more and more content every single week, so whether it's talkshow clouded or the rotating Friday streams follow the channel, so you know when we go live, and maybe you'll catch me winning another absurd game of chess. I one call now wait what what kind of stupid game! I. Don't honestly I don't know how the first happened. Okay? Now back to the lawsuit on June fifteenth. A guy named Eric Estherville filed twenty five million dollar lawsuit against twitch lawsuit states that s still suffers from a bunch of health issues, including OCD, depression and a severe sex addiction, and the lawsuit goes on to say that quote. Because of these maladies he heavily relies on the Internet for all of his entertainment, purposes and quote. Quote and basically he suing twitch, because he alleges that women twitch streamers make his sex addiction OCD worse quote twitches severely exacerbated his condition by displaying many sexually suggestive women, streamers through twitches, twisted programming, and neck owed making it nearly impossible for the plaintiff to use twitch without being exposed to such sexually suggestive content and quote to be clear, and this is in the lawsuit s to below follows exactly seven hundred eighty six women streamers. Zero male streamers not only does the lawsuit named twenty popular women's streamers including. And pokey, Main in-includes, pages, and pages of photos of these women as evidence as I was going through this lawsuit looking through these photos, it just felt really weird. It didn't sit right with me. One other issue that s says exacerbates his sex. Addiction is the fact that you can't choose to break down streams by gender quote. There's no way for the plaintiff to filter streams. He'd like to. To Watch based on gender, male or female. Therefore, the plaintiff has to choose a game and or category to watch with thumbnails, showing these scantily clad women alongside men of being the only streaming channels available to him and quote now in reality you could manually filter between men and women streamers, depending on who you follow, but remember according to the lawsuit Esta follows exactly seven, hundred, eighty six. Six women, streamers and zero men again, according to the lawsuit, the twenty five million dollars estabilish, asking for is to be split between him in other twitch prime turbo subscribers with the rest of the money leftover going to charities of the courts, choosing on top of the twenty five million s Davila was asking twitch permanently banned the twenty women named in the lawsuit. Okay, everything we just discussed. Discussed makes up the front half of the lawsuit. The entire back half of a lawsuit is dedicated to multiple academic papers, breaking down the history in research done on sex, addiction and listen. This is a real medical issue in this guy deserves all the help that he needs. But blaming women on twitch is probably not the answer now. If you're thinking where the hell did this come from. Actually ESTHERVILLE. Oh has history of filing these kind of over the top lawsuits. It all starts back in two thousand nine after s Davila was banned from PS end for being a troll while playing resistance fall of man online and if you didn't know. Is Basically playstations online ecosystem similar to xbox live? Here's a quote from an interview. He did with an gadget when he originally filed the lawsuit quote. I sued Sony because when they banned me, they banned my whole console, which is like a five hundred dollar waste there because I can't go online anymore, which was one of my ways of socializing so when I sued for fifty five thousand dollars that was something called punitive damages. When you're trying to penalize a company, and that's what I was trying to do. Penalize them for banning someone and quote from there. He sued Sony again. Plus Microsoft in ten does over flaws in different console designs that he purposely tried to find that in. In Two thousand ten I Japan gamespot could talk in a bunch of other gaming websites did their job in wrote about the lawsuits that Estella had filed against Sony Microsoft and Nintendo and he really didn't like that like as in he filed one giant lawsuit against thirteen different websites, because he was upset about the fact that they were writing about him. estabilish became so notorious that he was given all sorts of nicknames, the plaintiff the serial sewer. The list goes on. Also he wants sued blizzard, because apparently walking in world of warcraft took too long and in the lawsuit he tried to rope in actress, Wynona Ryder to explain the significance of alienation in Catcher in the Rye and quote. Rider, catcher in the Rye world of warcraft lack. Of and you probably won't be surprised to hear that. All eight lawsuits were either dropped by Estella himself or dismissed by the court outright now the complaint against twitch was filed on June fifteenth, while the summons was served to them on June nineteenth meaning legally now they have to respond in court, and while twitch hasn't made an official statement on this situation. It's only a matter of time before the core proceedings become public and hey, maybe this case will farther than anyone else was expected. What? He said all the haters. I'm not trying to zag just because everybody else is going in one direction, but I honestly don't understand. A lot of the complaints like people are really upset about the story, choices and things like that and it's just like. Why why are you upset that somebody told you a story that. You didn't agree with the choices like it's not your fucking story to tell. And I get that we have connections to characters, and when certain things happen. It makes you upset, but. Really. I fundamentally do not understand how people can be upset about somebody else's narrative created in Britain.

3 Signs of Deviant Benzo Prescribing

"A group of French psychiatrist released two papers this month that looked at how often physicians prescribe benzodiazepines and hypnotic in ways that deviate from the guidelines. The result twenty to thirty percent of those prescriptions deviated, and the rate was even higher in chronic medical and psychiatric disorders, forty five to sixty eight percent. But what I found most useful in this paper was the definition of deviation based it on French guidelines, and whether you agree with them or not. I think it's aluminum for all of us to think about these guidelines, and how often were off the mark? Here are three qualities of deviant benzoate prescribing. One duration prescribing benzoate for longer than one month when used for sleep or longer than three months when used for anxiety. To half-life prescribing benzes with a half life longer than twenty hours in people who are over aged seventy, five or people who are over aged, sixty five, and have two or more active medical problems. Or over age, sixty five and taking five or more medications, so which bends does have a long half-life that would be die as a Pam Valium Kloner Pamplona. Pin Arousa. transgene clorox supplied librium, one of the longest half-lives quasi-penal Doro and arguably praise lamb xanax. Three, prescribing, two or more ben does at the same time. So how justified these guidelines! I agree with the one about the long half-life those do increase the risk of falls memory problems as well as the overdose risk when used with opioids, a short half life benzoate like Morozov Pam Outta van to Mazza, Pam restaurant will or one of the safest oxy's Pam Sarah is preferable particularly in the elderly, and while short term use of benzodiazepines ideal. There's at least one disorder where long term use. Use is acceptable. That's panic disorder panic. Disorder is where Benzodiazepines have the best evidence and two are FDA approved there. Unfortunately, they kind of have a long half Life Plaza Pam and I'll praise lamb, generalized anxiety, disorder and social anxiety disorder are close seconds when it comes to the best evidence for using benzes in anxiety disorders. They are controversial in PTSD and they don't work in OCD. Which is no longer classified as an anxiety disorder.

This study tested it out in sleep related eating disorder. This is a problem where people partially wake up. Eat compulsively and then don't remember what they did the next day that separates it from night eating syndrome where people were conscious and remember the eating. I, the strengths, it was a randomized controlled trial that tested to pyramid three months, weaknesses, small sample size of thirty four patients and a high dropout rate of thirty three percent, although only one patient discontinued topamax due to its side effects. They did however use an intent to treat analysis in other words. They included the last rating for everyone dropped out.

Pregnancy & Postpartum Body Image

"Matters. Podcast thanks so much for joining me. I am so excited to be here. Really appreciate getting asked to join you. Yeah well we've connected online and you talk about some really important things just from from the perspective of being a therapist and also a human and I thought okay. Let's let's get together and talk about body image and the postpartum period because that is very much on your mind right now is that right. Yes definitely yeah. I am ten weeks outright now with my new baby and also have a two year old so I still kind of feel like I'm in the postpartum period with her to even though some people might disagree with that But I still feel very much like a new mother to both of them. Yeah Yeah Okay so talk about who you are in your background what you do professionally and then we'll dive in topic. Sounds good so I am a licensed clinical social worker and used to say I was a licensed scalzo worker in Louisiana but I just moved Tennessee But for the last almost ten years I've been in New Orleans Louisiana and that's where I got my graduate degree and just moved to Chattanooga Tennessee to be closer to my family. Meanwhile I raised these. Two girls My husband moved. We're altogether but My family lives here and so right now. I'm not working a whole lot. I'm seeing a few clients like in Tele therapy capacity from home So that's what's happening right now. But what like led me to this? Work in journey I around the age. Fourteen fifteen started struggling with OCD related issues and started going to therapy and loved therapy. Knew that it was probably going to be calling passion for me and it has been and so I went to college studied technology. Ocd got better for the most part And then when I went to Grad school I started becoming really interested in addictions and still anxiety and depression and related issues and once I started you know once I graduated Grad School and started my first jobs. I started really obsessively restricting and wants. Take yes food and once. I started that that lasted for about three years. And I mean after that I started to run a started to get help for it and once I went into. I didn't do a an impatient program but I did. Iop stuff and that led me like recovery myself has led me to be really really interested in eating disorder recovery and body image recovery for everybody and then out in a broader topic just disordered eating end health in general Because I think somebody that everybody faces even if they're not clinically struggling with the eating disorder of some kind And also my eating disorder weld in with OCD A lot. So that's what led me to place And still passionate about working in that area especially with having maybe girls. Yeah Okay so you have your own history and and then you've had years of studying in school and then working as a therapist and then Becoming a new mom Taco anything relevant in your story as far as like. What's it been like to be in recovery or recovered? I'm not sure what wording you like to use it From an eating disorder and then kind of going into new phases of life like like motherhood and the end postpartum. So heart of my story has been that I knew that I wanted to be a mom but I also knew I couldn't be a mom unless I was recovered from my eating disorder. And so that is what led me to seeking out. How because they knew at some point I wanted to have children in so basically after I got married I decided to. I realize that it wasn't just an. I want to be thin for my wedding issue. It was a bigger issue for me and decided than our would've been twenty sixteen so three and a half years. I decided that I wanted to make this better for myself that I don't pass on like really toxic ways of thinking to children and so that is what led me to kind of kind of the catalyst that threw me into recovery and so I got really lucky. I do identify as recovered struggle. Sometimes but I don't utilize behaviours in the slightest any longer and most of my thoughts able to Kinda Zap pretty quickly when they come up once. I did get help. I got pregnant pretty quickly after that so abou A year it wasn't very long about a year after I started feeling much more normal and better pregnant and obviously you know. Weight gain is a huge component of getting pregnant in the postpartum period. And while that was hard for me it also felt

The European Commissions approach to blockchain

"Hello and welcome to inch blocks urine. Decadent podcast to blockchain ans- mark contracts. I'm will eat. Scuff your host for this week's podcast. We be discussing the European Commission approach to blockchain. And I'm very pleased to have Peters Zilkha this head of unit digitalization Blockchain Digital Single Market Directorate at the European Commission Peteris. You've got a lot of titles. Many thank you many. Thanks for joining us today. Could you please give us a brief introduction on yourself? I'm glad to I mean I'm a lawyer by background. I have the JD degree from University of Southern California before they had a political science degree. And though I've never really practiced their California state bar for almost thirty years now and since Two Thousand and five Florence. My Country Latvia joined the European Union. I've been ahead of unit in the European Commission and digital innovation. Blockchain is what I've been working on and you could say to US sometimes perhaps over used term but It's a little bit my passion. I've been interested in walk chain and tech since about two thousand and twelve so perhaps not at the very beginning but at least relatively early for the public service this is also why I'm The original co chair of the Fintech Task Force. I have my second Co-chair coming from the financial services side. And then I'm from digital single market and I mean in both these areas I'm working in legislation and policy in funding infrastructure and research and managing it as well as working with with stakeholders and international cooperation. So it's an interesting bunch of things to work on. I'm glad to be doing it well. As you sitting the key term as passion because you're effectively getting the job of three other men so very impressive So Peter is As it is customary here at Inter blocks. Could you please explain our listeners? What is blockchain? And how does it work? Well glad to try. This is one of these things. It's a little bit of a communications challenge and exercise. But I mean I would say that. It's simply a growing list of records of blocks In a ledger that are linked utilizing cryptography and generally managed by peer to peer network adhering to a protocol for communication between the nodes and then validation of the new blocks that perhaps gets already a little little technical some listeners. But I would say. It's a way of validating transactions and data in an immutable in permanent way. So that you can be sure that they haven't been tampered with and that you don't have double spending of a value and that you can transfer data along with that value. That's the way that we see it and I think it's also important because some people are I think most of all sometimes negative that they say Blockchain is something that's bad because let's say uses a lot of energy if they take the original crew for work and everything that doesn't do that is is not blockchain. I mean we take a very wide view. I mean distributed Ledger Technologies Hash graphs tangle on these types of blockchain inspire technologies is is blockchain for us. I mean we're not trying to freeze history in two thousand and nine. When the BITCOIN paper was Was published or at some other point. It's developing technology and I would say what is really important is the element of decentralization which is not black and white. It is a gradient going from something which may not exist of completely centralized to something which also may not exist of being completely decentralized but actually allowing a degree of decentralization That a single database or even some federated databases. Don't don't allow so. This is where I think it gets exciting and where it makes it possible for a diverse group of actors to work together while preserving their autonomy. Excellent really loved that. I'm element of your definition of. It's a gradient of decentralisation incidents that's a spot on now could you introduce to us all the different bodies within the European Commission you have the digital innovation in Boston you need. And other bodies within your commission that are here to research enable and further development of blockchain in the EEG perhaps give us an overview where we'll do some deep dive in in some of the sure. I mean starting with with my unit. We're kind of the policy leaders on blockchain as a technology. But we're not. We're not the programmers as I said. I'm a I'm a lawyer and a political. Scientists have other colleagues are engineers but were more economists lawyers people looking at digital policy and in my unit we have the e U Blockchain Observatory in Forum which is a think tank working for us that has a whole set of reports and videos and regular workshops which used to be physical in at least right. Now they're virtually cited We also have the European blockchain partnership that my unit runs. This is twenty nine. Different countries twenty-seven all twenty seven e. You member states and Norway and Liechtenstein. Who are building a European blockchain services infrastructure together. I mean actually building an infrastructure. This piloting this is not testing. We're putting public services on the blockchain justified. We had quite a filtering to see which cases were justified to utilize the blockchain. And this is also something you could call a regulatory sandbox because while the countries and us are working together we obviously have to look at European Union legislation. We have to look at national legislation. Most likely you don't find anything. We're blockchain is prohibited. But you certainly don't find many cases where it specifically allowed though. You're getting some legislation in France in multi in other countries. It's specifically see a root for blockchain Roxanne legally And then we also collaborate with the International Association of Trusted blockchain applications as stakeholders organization I myself I'm in the OECD Policy Expert Advisory Board on Blockchain so we collaborate with OCD with the United Nations and others and In Not Buzz. International position of trusted blockchain applications a global governmental advisory board but also in the OECD activities. In the other activities. We probably would participate in the spring meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. This year I spoke myself in the IMF Fintech roundtable last year. Also you have the collaboration in the Fintech Task Force as I said from our side digital single market I gave a basic description on the other side. You have the financial markets colleagues the call as coming from research in Salon with the financial markets colleagues. Were collaborating on the digital assets possible legislation we just closed the public consultation on digital assets. Hearing what the stakeholders with the community has to say and in another context of the Digital Services Act which is a updating of ECOMMERCE along with addressing the platforms. We are seeing how perhaps smart contract so we have to do something to ensure that there is not any fragmentation of different requirements smart contracts across the digital single market and the twenty-seven member states. Something that we want to want to avoid

How Does Anxiety Work?

"It's perfectly natural to be feeling anxious. Everyone does sometimes and there are plenty of things that anyone can do to help combat it a Christian goes through a few ideas end of the episode but in this one we wanted to talk about what's going on in the brain when anxiety becomes a disorder. Here's Christian brain stuff it's Christian Sager here. Listen I get anxious you do too but hey it is totally normal and healthy response. That keeps us from doing things that might actually be dangerous. Like sticking your hand in a fire for instance but when anxiety is so pervasive that it interferes with your daily life it becomes a disorder and most researchers believe that disorder begins in your brain there several types of anxiety disorders phobias. Ptsd and OCD. Or just a few and some forty million American adults suffer from an anxiety disorder according to the National Institute of Mental Health. But let's focus today on general anxiety disorder which affects close to seven million adults in his twice as likely in women. You're constantly anticipating a threat or disaster. That isn't actually present. Maybe you're worried about money. Health family or work in despite reality you'll expect the worst. The symptoms include restlessness fatigue difficulty concentrating irritability muscle tension and sleep disturbances. The symptoms officially become a disorder. When you can't control your worry for at least six months you may still be social or even employed but people with general anxiety disorder can have difficulty carrying out even the simplest of daily activities experts. Believe that general anxiety disorder is caused by both biological factors and life experiences good old combination of nature and nurture but anxiety is also recognized by many as an emotional response with neurobiological routes simply put the neural pathways in our brains sometimes lead to irrational anxiety in stressful situations encourage us to develop associations with those pathways by influencing which neuro chemicals pass through them the same way you learn to tie your shoe you can also learn to be anxious the neurons in your brain fire and overtime. They get wired together. One stressful thing like being stuck in traffic leads you to think of another stressful thing lake a car crash. She wants survived. And this activates. A part of the brain stem called the locus serious. This triggers the symptoms of anxiety by releasing neuro epinephrine into your spinal cord and parts of your brain while hormones like adrenaline and cortisol spread through your body. It's supposed to initiate an analgesic response to suppress pain and initiate defense. When you're under threat like if you were actually in a car crash and injured but when there isn't any actual threat all were left with is the jitters of anxiety a couple other things about the brain contribute to anxiety. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital found that people with a thicker venturo medial. Prefrontal CORTEX are less likely to get anxiety. Basically some brains have more armor against inducing situations than others. We don't have enough

Is that the headless Horseman Sandwich. It's the one In a look at apple look I I could easily Google but I'm not going to. The point is okay. Thank you the point is that. I woke up this morning and I felt like I was waking up from being dead for like one hundred years so I'm tired and disoriented Rip Van Winkle Rip Van Winkle like I said Yeah I feel like Rip Van Winkle but I'm okay like I'm fine but like just I think we would be remiss to not mention that the life is really like tiring right now. Yeah Yeah Wednesday just Just left me. We're recording on on a Thursday crutches. Thursday it's allegedly. Yeah we're all like messed up and like my schedule has totally I? Everything is just is just like kind of a weird Amorphous Blob of time and it's every day is a question of like. How am I going to sculpt this time blob and every day as a surprise? Yeah how fun. Yeah it's a really good time But actually so that's a that's a transition that I'm going to take advantage of talking about this article Yes it has. Oh with the headline training for this our entire lives. And it's by. It's by Todd EMCO. Who's a listener of the struggle bus and the the dog parent of Piggy a very adorable service animal legged SOG piggy offer talk about Peggy for a second piggy is literally the best thing ever piggy is emotional service dog as well and can tell when you're feeling sad and goes up to people randomly and just knows when they're feeling sad so piggies doing overtime? Feel Yeah I feel like yeah piggies like working around the clock probably because picky so good at like human beings But todd takes piggy to schools and and Kids come up to piggy initials relieved beautiful disease. There's a lot of videos about Peggy. But were all linked to this on. Go Bus PODCAST. Dot Com this. Article's really interesting so yes there is really at article by Todd. And it's like talking about how What will the idea is basically that there are many people out there who are what what everyone is experiencing right now in a way there are people who have been kind of you know quote unquote like he says training for this their entire lives so lang todd says as as a severe obsessive compulsive disorder post traumatic stress disorder anxiety sufferer someone with compromised immune system? I know that people like me of spending our entire lives self isolating compulsively washing your hands in dealing with systemic exploitation of our plight and then the article he just he just goes on to talk about the various strategies that He uses in. That are familiar to him for like just dealing with the reality that we're in right now and it's really it's really interesting. It's really helpful. It's published in a mad in Asia Pacific and you can willing to it in the show notes but it's it's really good. I reread at this morning. And there's just like just a bunch of Just like awesome tips in there and not just tips but like just someone talking about you know aspects of a lot of us are feeling right now and it just feels really nice to kind of have that you know be recognized like called out so check that out as someone who has. Ocd and anxiety These are not the things I'm used to like washing. The hands is not my thing. You know checking doors or you know not talking to people and so. I've learned to adapt right so I think it's it's a really beat Florida about adapting and and how our anxiety is you know it can be real and you know we. We talk a lot about What's the word you use the Rip Van Winkle. Yeah no but sort of like just sort of like over thinking things and thinking like Oh. This isn't a catastrophic catastrophic thinking. That's all right. Thank you and and at this point we can think that way and I think that that's in in a very strange way Very welcome for those of us who have catastrophic thinking it's like okay Yeah yeah one thing that like. I can't remember if you and me were talking about this I forget who I spoke about anything on Zoom meeting with the I know. Yeah totally but like I. I've been feeling like Like my in a weird way. I especially felt this way in the very beginning of all of this I when people were like really starting to come around to how serious this was When people finally started to come around I was. I felt like finally relieved in a way. Oh well yeah absolutely but like that my like my like anxiety and vigilance about the world and its dangers and being safe that like other people were finally like thinking about that too and there are many people who think about that all the time because there are plenty of people in our country who are under extreme threat all the time just by virtue of they are but but like. I think that until this happened and like reality set in for a lot of people There were there. Were just a lot of people who aren't accustomed to thinking about what it means to live in uncertainty and to feel you know that the state not only will not protect you but is actively harming you And that there's chaos outside your doors and all the stuff and there's something about like people kind of also realizing that that's happening that made me feel like finally people are getting what I've always gotten like you know just because like we. We all have our own things that were bringing to everything in like my one of the things I bring to. Everything is being hyper vigilant and being like Yeah like thinking catastrophically cause me to spiral and have like not unproductive thoughts but cows probably thinking is also what has like my my like history of catastrophic making my propensity for it is. I think what has positioned me me personally to like. Be Relatively okay during all of this Yeah I'm very surprised. How calm I am during all this. You know I went through my spiral a few weeks ago. Like oh no and now like I'm good right so it's like these are things that we we just talked to our doctors and talk to our friends and it turns out that a lot of people that we know have had this or are carriers and it's very serious and we should take seriously but I like that people are well. I don't like anything about this but I like the people are finally taking it seriously and so when I tell people they're like oh myself as well and I'm like oh now we're sharing and unfortunately I mean this may be we'll go into your your next segment of debris Jabra of I really wish people took this more seriously if they aren't already Know New Yorkers are taking this seriously because we're very close spaces but I see a lot of things on social media where people are like but can I just walk around the block and do this friend and it's like no no. You're hurting us. If you if you heard other people you could be a carrier. I'm sorry to get negative sally. That's fine but do you want to like. How are you feeling are you? Are you doing? Okay just want people to know listening wisely. Yes how allies I am doing. A thousand percent better. I have I still have a low fever which is weird but you know it is what it is and I feel a thousand percent better.

Fighting Youth and Teen Suicide with Kendra Fisher

"We are facing an increasing crisis of teen and youth suicide in America and it is especially affecting young girls. Today's episode is a difficult one Kendra Fisher former elite ice hockey player and mental health. Activist and advocate helps me dig into the roots of the problem and what we can do to turn it around years ago. When faced with the opportunity to realize her dream of goaltending for team Canada Kendra was diagnosed with severe anxiety disorder coupled with severe panic attacks depression and agoraphobia forcing her to leave the national program in order to seek help to learn how to live with what had become a crippling disease. She now dedicates her life to helping. Young people get help for their mental illnesses. We turn now to a nationwide tragedy suicide new report from the Centers for disease. Control SAYS IT IS GROWING. Rapidly has been on the rise for more than a decade but nation suicide rate is at its highest point since one thousand nine hundred twelve year old accomplice allegedly harassed. Szechuan included that. You should drink bleach and die. No one likes you and you should go kill yourself. Sedgwick jumped off a near her home. After writing friends nine year old McKenzie atoms last week from other says the fourth grader was the target of Constant Racial Thompson? Name calling I was diagnosed with mental illness and I had no idea where to go so it was actually out at a team. Canada camping in Calgary and leading up to it in the weeks before I'd been to the doctors I've been to the hospital emergency room. I had no idea what was wrong with me. I felt like I was having a heart attack. I felt like it was gonNA Faint. Couldn't breathe swallow and and everybody told me it was fine. I love hockey and I love everything. It's given me both my hockey career. Also it would have had a shelf life and now. I'm in this position where I've learned so much about myself and I've met so many incredible people because of the journey I've been on and hopefully I can be a part of something that might stop somebody else. I'm Kendra Fisher and I'm fighting for the lives of those living with mental illness. Sorry not sorry so I mean. We've got a tough topic today but really before we dive in a love for you to give my listeners. A bit of information about your background. And how did mental health especially in girls become one of your causes? My background is hockey. I mean everything about my background is hockey. I grew up like so many Canadians. Just really wanting to have that red and White Jersey. That had my name on the back and I wanted to play for team Canada. I wanted to go to the Olympics and everything in my life through. My teens really suggests that I was going to be successful in that. I was carded member of team. Canada's National Hockey Program and sometime after high school I just got to a place where symptomatically and not knowing what. It was without a diagnosis. I was off. I just I felt sick all the time I felt like I was making trips to the emergency room constantly. Feeling like I was having a heart attack feeling like I couldn't breathe and it got to a place where unfortunately the perfect storm kind of hit. When I was out at my tryouts for team Canada in ninety nine and I was out at the camp and I just couldn't hide it anymore. It couldn't hide the battle that I was having every single day I grew up in in the greatest. You know possible situation. I had a great family. I had great friends. I was in a small town and I had a dream and my dream was. I wanted to play for team Canada. I wanted to play in the Olympics. That was that was what I knew. That was everything I worked for and I was well on my weight that I went to the coaches and I tried to explain to them what was going on and quite honestly their response to me was what it helps to know. What already made the team? They knew they wanted to select me that year. And I was finally get that chance to live my dream and it's obviously been one of the hugest moments of my life but not for anything I WANNA remember. Kazan's there was no at that point. What I eventually learned was a severe panic. Disorder and AGORAPHOBIA. Ocd clinical depression had literally taken over my life. And I spent the next five years unable to leave my apartment. Valey participating in my diagnosis just kind of scraping by and doing the bare minimum to survive and after five years I realized that just didn't see the point anymore and at that point I knew I had to make a decision and somehow I found it in me to start fighting and I learned everything I could about mental illness and the system and how it works and what supports are available when I really kind of became at the risk of sounding unhealthy obsessed with my own recovery and I got to a place where. I live very comfortably with my diagnosis. It doesn't mean it's gone. I live with it every day but now I live with it as a professional speaker and travel the world helping others learn how to cope and manage. I also work as a firefighter. I managed to go back and play for team. Canada's inline hockey team and it's really just kind of become a journey that I'm so passionate about because I understand how hopeless it feels but more importantly I understand how hard it is to find hope and defined real help and support and understanding about mental illness. And I just want to be a part of that. Narrative does mental illness. Run in your family. Yes yes and no I mean. I've always done this whole. Why did it happen to me and I think we always look for the answers because if we could find the answers we can fix the problem? Certainly on my on my Dad's side of the family. There's some depression but it wasn't so prevalent that I ever knew about. It wasn't something that I was ever made aware of. It didn't show itself to me until I actually understood what I was dealing with. And you said that you're now living comfortably with your mental illness. What does that mean? I'm fully functioning. It doesn't affect my day to day life in a way. It did in the way. It did kind of earlier on in my diagnosis. I got to a place where I just have an incredible system of support set up around me and I have all of my tools and strategies in place and I'm very quick to identify when I'm not doing well and I've also given others the permission to hold me accountable when they see I'm not doing well and in doing so. It allows me to really react quickly and now. I mean I would challenge that on my worst days of anxiety. I'm at worst as a panic on my worst days of depression doesn't affect me any longer than it would affect somebody getting a bad cold or the you know the stomach flu. It's it's a couple of days of really having to focus on what's brought me back to that place and making sure that I am doing all of the things that I know. Keep me healthy and usually I can rectify it. Just by changing those behaviors. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. But I think it's so hard that when we're in the middle of it to do the things that we know will make us feel better right like I know that going out and being in my garden digging in the dirt or taking a hike or taking a yoga class. I know that these are the things that will make me feel better and yet it's so hard to break out of it. Do you have any advice for me? Yeah absolutely with love and affection. Not as an not an onerous way. But I think that we forget to practice the things that keep us healthy when we're doing well We get to this place where we let life kind of takeover and that you know that pace of just going and when we're good we don't feel the need to necessarily revert back to that self care in those things that we know keep us healthy feel like so many people only practice crisis response and I think that it's time that people learn education and prevention are really the way to manage things crisis response is really you know. You're too far already.

Jameela Jamil Has an Ambitious Goal: To Feel Things

"It's the hilarious world of depression. I'm John Mel on this episode person who has become famous in America rather quickly as a Sitcom star and an outspoken activist. The Sitcom has ended but the activism. Who It's just getting started. Hello my name is Jamila Djamil and I am at the Hilarious Weld Off. Depression and And what do you do for a living? I'm an actor and activist at a pain in the US. Three job titles multifaceted. Jamila Djamil was a TV and radio host or presenter in England for several years. Welcome to fish. Wrap up with me. I am here to deliver onto you all of the latest chart news and gossip in less time than it takes to make a couple of so last Sunday Cigna American audiences. I got to know her playing honey. Djamil the name-dropping high-society Londoner on the NBC. Moral Philosophy Sitcom the good place. But we've been through a lot swell you. I haven't been this upsets. My good friend Taylor was rude. Yep Stage in Konya was defending my best friend. Say Jamila grew up in London. Her parents emigrated from Pakistan and India says. Her family had a lot of mental health problems. Schizophrenia OCD bipolar depression suicidal. Ibm for Jamila. There was anxiety. There was depression and coming to grips with a lot of trauma. I wouldn't say who within my entire giant family unit because South Asian families huge. But there was an abusive background. Came From and A lot of bullying at home and at school That happened to us. Because we were Pakistani and My Dad is I think. Technically Indian We were South Asians living in a very racist time in Britain such as very tense existence to grow up in where people constantly hounding you with racial slurs calling you a monkey and not wanting to sit next to you at school and just a general night Great doesn't doesn't so no it was really bad. I'm amazed I made it out of my. I've made it our of my twenties even but I've had like a full nervous breakdown gone completely just totally lost it looking back on it now. It was pretty bleak. She had big time mental health issues but she says South Asian immigrant. Culture didn't talk about that kind of thing and neither did British culture. What was being talked about? Was the necessity for girls to be ridiculously skinny. And Jamila Developed Anorexia so I think is a combination the fact that I was growing up in the nineties and so- Heroin Chic could time the adults using non ironically. Where you to? In order to be beautiful you had to emulate the look of someone who does not eat and only Consumes heroin is also look a famine? That people were trying to achieve which is fucking insane considering that famine was and is still occurring in this world and millions and millions of people are suffering and dying from it and how much those people would love to be able to eat something Having their own physiques considered chic in this Bizarre and shallow industry. I was seeing people in my own country. Flights Pakistan and see 'em like skill lethal people on the side of the street begging for food. And then I would come here and see people starving themselves deliberately to emulate that look in order to fit into runway closed just so tiny so the look was just everywhere you were supposed to have jutting out hipbones and believe me. It was a badge of owner. It wasn't something that you hid. There was a long queue outside the girls along line outside the girl's bathroom. Everyone throwing up at lunch one. After the other. The other there was a girl. Easter bring her weighing scales in school and e on them. I remember without giving an interview saying she eats nude in order to stop us from overindulging. In Your Kate Moss talking about nothing tastes as good as thin. Feels well tacos. Pizza cake was their decision that you remember making A. I need to start eating way less. I need to start. Was that a conscious thing or do they just emerge suddenly it was a very very conscious scarring moment of my maths teacher wanting to teach us about graphs and pie charts and she weighed all of us to collect all of our weights as data to show a chart. The dumbest thing you've ever heard how I was. Eleven I was one of the tools guarding was the second oldest girl in the year and I was choppy. Because you gotta get like why toget- toll and also I was just. That was just my build at the time I was loving the curry and I had no self conscious about my body whatsoever. I loved having a tummy. I didn't know about thighs very innocent child. I wasn't remotely interested in the way that I look and That moment changed everything because I was the happiest girl in the class. I was ridiculed by the entire year I came home. My family founded shocking upsetting. I was the happiest girl year and I was immediately encouraged to diet and so I started my first I about eleven and it was. I was dieting. The way an eleven year old were diet which is with no understanding of any nutrition. I was living on somewhere between like two hundred three hundred calories. A day sometimes lasts which is insane because I was very tall and even by the time I hit five ten in my early teens. I was still consuming sometimes. Want two hundred calories a day a belly move passing out all the time didn't did stop menstruating and thought that I was winning. It never struck you as something wrong with us. No everyone was doing it. Everyone was doing everyone who's taking laxatives. Everyone's drinking teas that. I now rally against so hard There was slimfast cans all over our school. I want you know fell over. One on the steps steps passed out a tiny like fake chocolate bars instead of meals. It was just people were afraid of carbs and Pasta and everyone was on the Atkins Diet. So everyone's smell like metal and also it was just disgusting. It's terrible time and we were all on it so it didn't even feel like something. You really hit ego also at the time because of Hollywood there was this fucking Brag that I think kind of still exists of women pretending they eat so much just unnaturally thin. What a dumb witted Brag finding other mental illness conditions emerging with the eating disorder or. Were you just two out of even notice a depression or an anxiety? I wasn't even out of it. I was high on it like I was just sort of I was I was such a devoted anorexic and I was so it's so time consuming beyond our exit. The amount of time you spend learning new tricks trying new tricks hiding your food all of the all of the things that you have to do with so consuming. The I didn't even know that I had any kind of mental illness. I didn't think I had anorexia. I didn't think there was no. I didn't think there was anything wrong with me. The only thing I thought was wrong with me that I wasn't enough I was never thin enough. Do you understand what Anorexia was and just think it was something other people had. Yeah I used to be jealous. I thought Anorexia could only come in the form of of someone who weighs like three or four stone forty two to fifty six pounds and I would be envious if those people for being able to achieve that. I really didn't get it. But that's the problem is if you give this misinformation children. We don't have the whole picture. We do we also have this like youthful arrogance to us where we think our health will last forever. Our lives will go on forever will never be Will never face the side effects in. No one knows about osteoporosis. Kidney damage or liver damage all the IBS. All the different things that happened to people who mess around with their health my thyroid. My drains. Everything is exhausted. I mean I even now sorry twenty years after I started sobbing myself. That's what I was gonna ask because so often people think of it as. Oh anorexia is when you're not eating enough but it is a mental thing that even if you people can have anorexia yeah and and even if you find better eating habits later on the reasoning the processing of the idea of food is still always there. So many of told our weaponized food in our minds. So we're taught that like food. Is You know if you have a parent who beats you and then feel bad about it and then gives you a meal afterwards. You start to associate that meal with love or if your parents are. You're not supposed to eat then. Food becomes rebellion and food. Become self harm so we can. We can give food all these kind of different personalities and I think a lot of people lot more people realized then they realize even during the the guilt associated food and the coding and the words that we use around food of clean eating dirty foods. This is just this shame Sort of slipped in an envelope within all of these ways of discussing this thing that we need to give our body nutrition so it can function food fuel and I didn't know that until I hit thirty

Postpartum Psychosis Warning Signs

"We're going to discuss postpartum psychosis and you were drawn to the specialty after you yourself went through postpartum depression postpartum anxiety and postpartum. Ocd after the birth of your first child or act yeah. There's a lot of things again. Happen in the postpartum period. I'm here to talk about one of the more severe conditions in the interest of full disclosure. I'm a forty three year old male. I've never been pregnant and I do not have children. I'm really really entry level. When it comes to understanding what post-partum anything is so thank you so much for helping to educate people like myself. It really is an important topic. It's absolutely important and a lot of people have that same feeling. I don't know anything about it. It seems like this weird thing that happens to other people and chances. Are you know somebody who has suffered through some form of perinatal mental health condition? Even if they don't talk about it which is very common a lot of people. Don't talk about it because there's so much shame around kind of not feeling well or not feeling yourself even during pregnancy and postpartum. There's all these ideas out there that it's this wonderful magical time and hopefully it is but for a lot of people in and that's one of the things that came up while I was trying to do research for the show so that I could talk somewhat on this subject. I was shocked at how many times I googled. Postpartum psychosis or postpartum anything and the articles. That came up. Were M I a bad mother M I abide parent. Am I harming my child? That really Kinda spoke to me like in a visceral way. This idea that you also have the illness. And there's all this stigma and shame surrounding it. Is that what you found working as a therapist? Oh absolutely hear comments. All of the time I feel like a bad mom. I'm not good enough for my child. Feeling Shame and the blame and confusion around. Why do I even feel bad? We are just not educated on what can happen. I think it's a great disservice to everybody who goes through any kind of perinatal mental health condition. Because they're mostly blindsided by it right. You like here supposed to be having the best time of my life. This is what my body is supposed to quote unquote and here. I am feeling like a failure and just to be clear. None of this is true. You are an excellent parent. This is just sort of the illness. And societies misunderstanding of the illness. Taking hold in an unexpected way over. Sorry this is a very treatable and very temporary condition if you get the right help and if you get it as soon as you know even if you're getting a little bit later down the road you still can feel better. And there's not a huge impact throughout the life course of you or your child however again in the more severe cases are not treated. There are some long term effects and I know that might sound really scary to people so I wanted to sell the myth that if you have a condition you're going to be like messing up your kid in some way like I said this is very treatable and also when it was very very severe there can be really life threatening consequences. So let's talk about postpartum psychosis. What is the definition of postpartum psychosis typically oppose artem? Psychosis isn't very rare Wanted to out of every thousand delivery and it is not postpartum. Depression or postpartum. Means -iety the onset of these symptoms are usually in the first two weeks but certainly can show up a little bit later. There's a really rapid onset. Meaning symptoms start quickly and it is characterized by the mind is kind of going off on. Its own in part because of hormonal changes in part because of your mental health history and in part because of sleep deprivation so people who are if postpartum psychosis are having rapid mood swings they are potentially having delusion or strange beliefs about themselves or their child or people around them they may be having hallucinations feeling very very irritated. The difficulty to sleep inability to sleep sometimes paranoia And what's really hard about postpartum psychosis is that the symptoms waxed and waned. Meaning they come and go so sometimes people can sort of the feel like themselves and appear to be like our normal cells and then sometimes people around them might observe that they don't look like themselves are sound like themselves so it can come and go for quite a few people and then for some people that symptoms on the onset is. They're just continue. So I know all that probably sounds pretty scary and Syria and it actually is pretty scary. And the're Like I said before. It's very rare and people who have a history of bipolar disorder are at high risk or if there's bipolar disorder in the family. They're at higher risk. Oftentimes psychosis in the postpartum is an indictment bipolar disorder. So let's talk about that for a moment. I myself live with bipolar disorder. And I understand psychosis from a lived experience because I I have experienced. Psychosis is it. The same is postpartum psychosis and for lack of a better phrase Gabe Howard's psychosis. Is this a similar thing or is it completely different? There's certainly familiarity in terms of symptoms of psychosis are the same. What what's very different here. Is that there is a new baby involved. And sometimes they delusions or hallucinations are in relation. To the new child is new very vulnerable child and also the perinatal person also very vulnerable. They've just given birth of had massive changes in hormone both during pregnancy at delivery and then in the Postpartum. They're really really rapid and kind of swings in the in the hormone during that time and sleep deprivation. Is You know when it's sort of like just you quote unquote. You have capacity to possibly sleep. In these cases there's Abadie involved and babies cry and they wake people up And that's what they do and that's what they're supposed to do But for somebody who needs sleep and isn't getting it and can't get it a whole other layer of complexity into into the life and into the simpsons because you're in relation to a baby a while having psychosis for some time that means that. There's like a hyper vigilant around the baby. Like it's really hard to not be around them or to let anyone else support them or sometimes it's like a kind of a total disregard like people in some psychoses. They will kind of forget the baby there so it brings this whole other level of danger and complexity also then. There's additional layer. That people around them are thinking. Oh well she's kind of baby. She's not quite herself or giving some other explanation for odd behaviors or strange behaviors. And it Kinda put people in a more of a dangerous situation because symptoms are explained away because they're not understood and it's not expected that these kind of symptoms will show up. I'm kind of assuming that the way that postpartum psychosis has played out in the media as well as How motherhood is played out in the media those two things combined because like you said we want to defend new parents. We don't just want every new mom under the bus and say oh well. You have a serious mental illness. That's the problem but of course this can be dangerous because it lacks care. I suppose my specific question is how is Postpartum? Psychosis played out in popular culture. It actually in very dangerous ways so in ways that further stigmatize apparently period. So mostly what we're seeing in the media while you see on. The news is postpartum psychosis that has led to infanticide. And this is a really really hard topic for people to hear about and also. This is a very real possibility with postpartum psychosis. I know that one to two percent of people who have term psychosis four to five percent of those mothers will kill their children. They killed their baby. It's really a hard reality to hear. And what I want people to know. Is that when this happened? Women are not in their right mind at all. They are not themselves. Do not know what they're doing. They're often being told by their delusion to do something. Sometimes there are delusions that the baby is possessed. So they can't be here although this might not make any sense but most of the time it's really out of love a lot of love like the world is too harsh for the child so they have to go and misses a very severe departure from reality. The Mon- who are in the situation do not know what they have done if they come out of it and get the medication that they need. They can't even thousand. What has happened people thinking say? Oh what a horrible person. I can't believe she done this. I would never do this to my child. And the thing is is that if she were in her right mind she wouldn't either. So what we're seeing in the media is usually the mob who have done something like this and who are being handcuffed or going on trial so there's most severe. This is the most of your consequences of perinatal. Mental Health Condition Postpartum Psychosis in infanticide. Is How postpartum psychosis is viewed. Most people are postpartum psychosis are experiencing hallucinations or delusions or some kind of waxing and waning symptom. That does not reach that level. Typically they may need hospitalization and medication. But it's not always the people who go on to have their children in this way.

Sleeping with Bedbugs

Sleeping with Bedbugs

"Bed. Bugs have been around forever like before the Pyramids were built and they were a real problem from Alenia until we started using pesticides in a big way particularly de now that is banned pesticide. Use has been really restricted. They're starting to make a comeback. Now call it a comeback. They've been here for years. Cool J is that you also increases in travel have open doors for the little buggers true. That's the classic story. Some poor slob goes on vacation to Disneyland and comes home with Bit Bucks. I thought Disneyland is where you went to get. Measles to poor Disneyland Disneyland's a big corporation. May We don't want to associate them with diseases. Not SMALL FRY. You may ask. They are blood feeding insects in a nutshell right like lice except unlikely they don't live on humans just near us the hang out close to where we sleep or spent sedentary time which is most often in the bedroom but if you're looking for bedbugs it's unlikely you'll see them right here on the bed. Usually there'll be in cracks and crevices in the mattresses or under baseboards around bedside tables. Don't forget clothes. Hang on clothes as well. Yeah and when you go to bed or pull and that shirt that you got from posh mark the jump start feasting. They're not like crawling around on the surface of the closer like in the seams or something like tucked away. So you don't you're not gonNA notice it. Yeah and when we feasting we mean they really settle in and make a meal of it. They don't just take a quick nibble in the runoff. To find someone else to nibble on. They hang out for like five to ten minutes second way like they tuck in and then they finished with that spot they move on down and chump again and start over yeah. They're like the French. I mean they savor their media which is why the bites are in this sort of linear pattern up and down. Someone's arm or leg or abdomen. Or wherever. Yeah escapees also have a linear pattern by the way. But they make burrows tunnels bedbug bites are on exposed parts of the skin like arms and legs if you sleep in shorts and even the face they can sometimes face and they leave a series of bumps with this little center and they are itchy or not. Some people won't be bothered by the bites at all. They might not even have a significant reaction to them or even notice them. That's true but for most people the BYS are usually no big deal. They'll go away after seven to ten days. You might need a little topical steroid cream if the itching is really bad. Or maybe a Benadryl or something but if you have an infestation it'll just keep getting the bites until you get rid of the bug so it doesn't matter if they go around away in seven to ten days because you're getting bit tomorrow night rid of the bugs is no easy task. I am sorry to say that is true but I even before you do that. You have to confirm that it's well and truly bedbugs that are causing a rash and this means you have to catch the suckers and that's kind of hard to do because as we mentioned they don't live honest just near us. There are sometimes clues to the present so like little spots of blood on the sheets and then there's the smell the smell so apparently bedbugs practice. Fairmont that really stinks and is quite noticeable with big time infestations. I've never actually knowingly smelled a bedbug. So me neither but it has been various in described to me knock wood some people say it. Smells like wet towels or gyms hawks. I read that it smells like Cardamon or rotten raspberries. Maybe this smell is dependent on the blood type of the host. The host has been eating. Served the terroir for grapes. Wonder if there's any interesting study in there somewhere probably not probably but here's the coolest thing you can train dogs to detect bedbugs based on the smell. That is cool yet. They can do so much to do what you have to have. A bunch of bed bugs though which seems like it might be hard to get. You can buy them online. I looked you can get anything. You want at Alice's restaurant or Amazon this time it's by bedbugs. Dot Com not Amazon. So theoretically you could train your doctor smell bedbugs. You could also go to local training courses in the Austin area for example it. I'm guessing you look those up. Yeah Yeah. They're probably available at any major metropolitan area. Austin is Weird. Listeners are interested. I can't see a need for private individuals to have a bed bug detection dog please. Nobody go by bedbugs. We not recommending that as just a recipe for things going wrong and then blaming to stupor definitely not recommend. We say do not go by bedbugs to train dog. Please but a pesticide service or hotel. That would be very useful. That's true yes what I. Yeah that's what I thought anyway. Getting rid of them is very difficult. That's the bottom line regardless of whether you have a dog that can smell them or not and people have tried various things dripping off the sheets pillow cases of the bed linens washing them one hundred twenty degree Fahrenheit water because apparently they'd killed at or above this temperature. Yeah but they don't live in your bed. They live around it. So most people suggest manually removing them a cleaning aggressively to get rid of them scraping them out from under the baseboards. And maybe it's time you throughout that mattress you button. Nineteen Ninety eight and stop buying clothes on mark. Never never honestly you know if I got bedbugs I would have no objection to using in my house. Well we're getting there and here's the thing you know how you can put everything in a bag sealed up leave it for a few days in the lifestyle. Yeah not so with bedbugs. They can live in this sort of dormant state without eating for over a year. So none of that stuff. We just mentioned really works. If you have a true infestation the best unfortunately most expensive solution is to call an exterminator. Yeah a reputable one. And don't try to yourself because people have developed serious health problems particularly neurological problems from pesticides. I bought online or by using pesticides incorrectly. Yeah the best medicine though when it comes to. Bedbugs is prevention. Just don't get them in the first place right. So if you notice a musty cardamom raspberry smell and your hotel room. Just leave keeps your case off the floor. Done impact. Put your clothes in the dresser and when you get home wash all your clothes and a hundred twenty degree Fahrenheit water. I'm not really sure. How hot water is it's coming out of my tap. You said it at the hot water heater just to make sure you use a meat thermometer and check the water coming out of my Faucet. One hundred and forty degrees. That's some hot water. I know he's water. Heater is set to something different. Just make sure yours will get the job done so. Do you recommend that like if you come in from a trip just through your stuff directly in the washing machine before you even bring it into your bedroom. Yeah I mean. How's that going to hurt? Yeah I mean. She can't do if they're in your suitcase. Well you gotta you gotTa throw away your suitcase every time every trip Sam Moon here. I travel with the plastic trash bag. There we go okay so we've talked about. The rash is usually no big deal but occasionally the bites can get infected and people can show up in clinic with impetigo even cellulitis. In which case they would need to antibiotic to treat the secondary secondary bacterial infection. But this doesn't happen very often now but what you do see more often than one might think are mental health issues related to bedbugs. I would think it would make me crazy. I mean bedbugs can cause serious anxiety even. Ocd symptoms. There's a social stigma around them. That really shouldn't be there right and you people don't get invested because they're dirty. We live on this planet with lots of other creatures in occasionally. We live somewhat closer than my mother-in-law announced to everybody underdog. She got bed bugs. When she went to Taiwan. It was a great conversation piece for a while. She had no shame. And that's how it should be the rest of us.

"I have Tara Iraq here and I'm so excited that she's here. She is a friend and it just an amazing human and her heart is one of the big parts of anyone I've ever met. And she had said something to longtime ago and it was about nurturing moms and then I think that that's something that's often forgotten and she is a mindfulness expert. I would call her an expert a self. She has a self care guide. She is the founder of the mindful Mama's. She's a psychologist a postpartum depression survivor. Wife and a mother and I am so glad that she's here. Thank you for coming on Tara off. Thanks for having me I am just looking at your beautiful glowing believe that I have the honor of being in your presence. That was such a sweet ended up in your son is I so I was thinking before we hopped on how your name. Tarallo rock is such a grounded name. Yeah tear means like Earth and then it's Iraq and it's like wow. That's such a grounded name which I feel like describes you as a person. Yes Oh my name. When I was born my mom said she took one look at me and knew I was going to be this. Just little free spirit with a little with a little feisty and I think that's what mother earth is right so grounding so beautiful but then has these moments where it can show up and show up in big ways so I think I feel super lucky to have my name and then when I met my husband and I knew his last name of rock not only did I think he was like the most beautiful man but I was like we are dust into last name is just incredible and I want my kids to have that name so thank you. You're welcome So I would love for you. I guess to start from wherever you'd like in your story because used to work as a psychologist and went on this incredible journey with motherhood that kind of changed your purpose in life in your direction and I would love for you to kind of share that story with us absolutely so I have a background in child family and school psychologist and I worked largely in the public sector in public schools serving a refugee community and I loved it. I loved working with kids. I loved working with the Family Unit. It just was such a good fit for me but when I became a mom I had a really hard time separating out the trauma of the families I was working with and then my own trauma my own struggles that I was going through with becoming a mom For Me Postpartum. Depression is a really big part of my story. But it's also one of the biggest gifts that I've ever received in my life too because it really woke me up to allowing myself to go deep and to think about what you know my purpose in this world and while I love working as a child family and school psychologist I felt like there was this bigger need or for MOMS. I felt like mom. Were being forgotten somehow and we were wrapping our our support around the caves and trying to fix the kids but not really focusing on. Will you know it starts first with the parents and then it trickles down from there and so when I experienced postpartum depression with my first going back to work it was kind of just this. It was a perfect disaster in a sense where I was not able to st the signs and the symptoms of my own suffering while I was treating other people for the same things for anxiety for depression for stress for for trauma There was a lot of shame and that being a mental health provider and not even really being able to identify a that. I was suffering and be I didn't know where to go to ask for help or if I could ask for help because I thought that being a psychologist meant that I needed to be almost Above it if that makes sense almost Kind of immune to it which is such a a night even in you know really privileged way of thinking but that was that was my truth. I had a lot of shame like if I can't even help myself. How am I going to help anybody else though? Yeah that was. That was the start for me. It was really dark. Dark beginning of motherhood I loved my baby but I had intrusive and unwanted thought so I had postpartum depression coupled with OCD. Which a lot of people don't really talk about that you think of his Kind of these outward behaviors where you see people counting washing their hands and while that is a part of it my my obsessions or my compulsions. To try to stop the unwanted thoughts were really internal so it was something that nobody could see. I would beg God to take the awful thoughts away. I would try to distract myself with song I would avoid being alone or Having the the room or the house quiet I just couldn't be with myself and in my thoughts and that coupled along with the stressful work environment it was. It was hard. It was really hard

For all those people that 'never get sick'...

"It's been like three weeks of sickness cygnus in my house with Flu Croup. There was a minor pin worm scare. So I've been sick. I'm trying to kind of recalibrate and rest and You know can I have. Can I say that I have a bone to pick a bone broth put toothpick this bone. Bra Okay yes I I have been doing. All the things one does when one is sick to try to heal themselves and then taking my elgible berries syrup and you know my baths with my soap. Myself my bath with my salt and I get irritated when conversations occur where it's like you know I never get sick. And it's because I do dot dot dot I think this myth of like the person person who doesn't ever get sick because of X. Insert whatever their Yeah I think they just haven't been sick in a while and so there is a level of like print almost like they're blaming you like it's your fault little bit. Yeah and if only only you had done what I like. Oh well I you know I drink elderberry. elderberry is just on the tip of my brain right now. Yeah and I never get sick or I have bone broth you now every week and I never get sick and it's like it's the same experience I've had my kids have head lice a ton. Yeah and as a result I've gotten it and I often talk to people and they're like well I just I'm not GonNa make kids head and we've never had lice and AMAC. That's that's a nice preventative measure. It's not doesn't completely prevent right one day. It's going to happen. Yeah anyway so I just I feel a little sensitive about those conversations that I find I can into a lot interesting. How those conversations at all I mean you really speaking language because those kinds of conversations drive me up a wall which is perhaps? Why don't get into that? It's like people start and they're like no not. I'M NOT GONNA NOT GONNA go there with her and I have to watch myself when I do it about any. Yeah I certainly on the flipside dude about all sorts. It's all things I'm sure right. I mean it's so hard to say like what helps correlation is not causation Um and we're all individuals all individuals and we all you know. Someone who works in an office has kids in daycare in travels. A lot is probably going to get sick a lot more than someone who like works from home and has no kids yes or like and never leaves the state not. I'm not like I definitely get sick less in California than I did in New York right. I was on the subway every day. The weather is different anyway. Who you know I as you know? I am generally not one for these more. Shall we say homeopathic remedies and I know that this is a controversial stance. But that's just I'm just speaking my truth. Give me the dayquil stuff I do put stock in is like Nick Washing your hands sneezing into your elbow like you know what I mean like the kind of things that do actually try to prevent the spread of germs. We read a book called girl. Wash your hands. Will you know I wanted to write a book called Girl Wash your by washing. Your the hands is way more important than washing your face. Oh completely agree like yes. Wash your face doesn't prevent the spread of germs. Oh we got a scrub the hands. You gotTA wash their hands. We're in Sheikh handwashing time. I mean it should always be peak in Washington but especially now you make a good point that is we we know and anytime you go to the doctor which I have done a lot in the past month with my kids. It's like just like you got to watch those hands and you've got to say the alphabet while you wash your hands. That's how long you have to do it and like there's just now all that said as well it is obviously still possible to get sick even if you wash your hands a thousand in times a day and I don't want to encourage anyone who perhaps has like. OCD tendencies to think like. Oh my God I need to wash my hands every five seconds now I appreciate that you know what I mean Menia. 'cause like I think it helps but I don't think it's like it's not the cure. All is what I'm saying. There is no you know. Yeah

Isn't it furniture the worst. Yes because you just don't expect expect it to be that expensive. Not only that but you think that like okay. Well if I'M GONNA spend X. amount on this couch which I think is an insane amount. There should just be one. That's there like you have one in the store and it's GonNa take you six months to get one to my house like I just don't understand a specially for a nice one right. You'd think they could move to the next right. You would think they would just be like. Oh let's just make this tomorrow. The things that I buy that are are frustrating to me our furniture and again I live in a pretty nice house now and but to fill it up with crap. I'm leaving in most of my rooms. It's Solano nope not at all. I don't WanNA leave empty because I'm ocd about that stuff and then they're like this is how much a bad costs you can. Refrigerators frigerator suck. frigerator are mine just broke recently which was great car tires. It's something else that you go. You gotTa have good ones. You get what you pay for. I've got a vehicle that's getting. I'm not there now. Giving me a new vehicle. It's broken like four times since I've had it Geeta lemon like women law. That's the thing right where they just like. Okay well we're just GONNA take the loss and just give you a new one so the car that you bought rubber broken four times. Yeah I mean it works but it's just kind of user error. No it's not user air. No it's it's great and it's just every time time it always happens right when I get right when I get home from like a long period of not being here and I haven't been able to drive live and then I get in it like at the airport and then it it breaks on the way home like you just trying to get home right by. TV does that enough. Like I'm ready to get home. I've been out the only time I need to use it. It didn't work and watch the office and just chilling then. It doesn't connect so I don't want them to fix it anymore just just either. Semi new owner argue Mary Fund or something. So Oh you did the last couple of New York doing doing sem love what was that like for you. Get in the call and I'm not sure how that call work. Do you go. I'd I'd like to be on. SNL think about us or not really you know it was like it was super last minute and it always is. I think it's like because they booked the hosts I mean I'm not certain but I feel like they book the hosts three weeks out and then the musical act. I mean it was like a week and a half so oh you didn't know for three or four months that you were going to be. SNL Yeah no no. It was like I got called in it was like. Hey we're doing this. Alison Week half and I was like okay so we had torsos scheduled like we rented out the space and all the crews. They're setting everything up. The ban guys had already rehearsed a couple of days and then they had to open. Go to New York like super last minute. That's pretty cool. Though right it was awesome and it was really awesome. It was it was definitely the coolest coolest list like filming thing experience that I've had what's it like walking into that space for the first time because you rehearse pre The day before or a couple of days so we went in. I mean two or three days. We were in New York for four days. And I can't imagine how. Jj was there heaps probably there for at least a week. Maybe maybe even the writing meetings he was in all the right meetings and changing the skits and everything like that so it was really cool because I grew up watching US L. With my dad and and so it was really neat. It was very surreal to be there in like C set so a conic you know and is awesome in You know definitely do it again. Do you do the first. Because the first show they we do as full and then they'll end up moving and cutting sketches a bit and then they just go again and do it again live. Yes when you do the first one to do the same two songs running just as you were going to run and how did you feel after basically the super dress rehearsal talk really good about it. I mean you know Lauren came in and was like. Hey you're holding the Mike too high I on the first song cameras. Yeah and you can't because normally I'm holding up here and he's like why can't see your face if you're holding up here so you got to just calm. But that was the only we note that he had but other than that it was great. Who did you ask to take pictures with? I didn't really ask. I'm not a big like I'm not a big like take the picture backstage guy you know unless it happens naturally Obviously me and JJ got a picture. But I mean obviously I wanted to picture with Lorne because I've been a fan of his for a long time and But that was it you know I. I've never been into like unless it's a natural thing that happens. You know. I'm not a big like pop in the dressing room and be like what's You know I mean I don't mind that at all. I actually love when people do that but sometimes I just feel uncomfortable about it. You know because you don't really know I didn't know. Jj Who's going to be like Super Nice Awesome Guy. You Know I. I mean I've never met him so he might have been like. Who's this Guy Michaels? Like he was awesome. He was Super Nice. He's definitely a boss. You can definitely tell. He runs the show But he was he was very nice. Man Very no one will Just had some great stories you know and then. Jj Eh you know. Obviously he's mass of my experience the NFL players as they look big on TV. But then when you meet them you're like Oh my God. They're so big. It was like that to me yes. They're so much bigger they look big on TV but everyone on TV's big on the Games you know so you don't really like if there's the guy that looks bigger than the rest of the guys that guy's really big and so sent him to Jj it was. It was definitely weird. I'm not small guy but he was just massive Tali six foot so when you did the promos watching some of those promos. Because that's those are the iconic thing where they have one of the cast members the host and the musical art MHM like as far as what I was able to see. That was one of the coolest things I got to see you do because I've just seen so many people do that every year. Yeah it was neat and they put eighty Brian on a like an apple box so she she was just she was like she looked like a child. You know beside us. So they had her up on apple doc just so she was like in the frame. I mean it was. It was pretty

Smothered & Entitled - Al Lubel

"I was thinking the other day. Actually I was talking to somebody and talk talking about my past and my struggles with self obsession and and just kind of dark corner that I got into in my life and I had all these things externally that I had dreamed of having and when I was younger yet I felt so empty inside and as I look back now I I realize is that the price of selfishness is loneliness and I couldn't see that at the time I thought that survive I I needed to think about myself more. Didn't realize that help was one hundred eighty degrees away from that that it was not trying to impress people but to be vulnerable to be honest to be my authentic self and then I could allow people love me. And then that's when I began to feel connection and the loneliness eased took me a long time to realize that I'm GonNa read something from our struggle. In the survey. This was filled out by a woman who calls herself awkward side Hug and a modern order. Anerexia she writes if there is less of me than maybe there will be less of me to hate so so so profound about herself harm. It hurts less than feeling everything and nothing at the same time. Isn't that funny. How we can feel numb in overwhelmed at the same time thank you prevent is a happy moment? Filled out by a woman called herself Rowan. She writes I was in Church today with my parents silently seething at the system that has taken God and turned him him into a symbol of hate for so many groups. And I'M NOT GONNA lie. I was ready to give up on it all faith everything. But then the communion him began and I heard the young young girl behind me singing with all of her heart. Here I am. Lord is it I lowered and suddenly I realized God isn't about the system that has corrupted his image. He is about this young girl unabashedly asking if she is the one who will do great things in his name. I sang with her for the remainder remainder of the song. And I believe that little girl just saved my faith and just beautiful. I love love those moments when we just feel like the the universe is talking to us and saying something to keep us going. This is an email that I wanted to Read this was something that I got Somebody had written me about struggling with intrusive thoughts. They had related very much to the one of the episodes that we had with breath The Therapist Kimberly Quinlan and she specializes in OCD. And this person had written to me saying how much she related to the episode with Kimberly and how helpful it was to her and I said if you wanted to write something for the website about your struggle with intrusive thoughts That might be cool and then And so she she did and then I thought you know what I actually actually like to read this on air And she calls herself Cameron and she writes first and foremost anyone who has intrusive thoughts or was he should know that they are kind signed loving and gentle people who would never act on their thoughts the fact that the thoughts upset or disturb. You is evidence of this which is helpful to remember when you're in real Despair next know that you are not alone. I think the condition itself leads to many of with to isolate. It's embarrassing and frightening to tell others that you have disturbing thoughts you feel. You can't control so it's our tendency to keep it to ourselves. Enforce ourselves to deal with it alone. Anyone doing this right now. How should know that this fuels the OCD? It's like a parasite that happily dines on your fear and use it to inflate the intensity of your thoughts. This creates more fear and the cycle continues finding a way to share. What is happening to you with others is really important in keeping your OCD check? A good therapist should be able to listen to you without judgment or fear and help you learn ways to quiet the parasite if you can't afford or find a good therapist thing about out who in your family or friends circle you could share this with that would be kind in that would be kind and compassionate about it. If you don't have that kind of support your life look online for others. Who are suffering as you are? I use the word suffering purposely. Here is this condition can be very painful anyone who supports you should acknowledge allege that a trick that sometimes helps me is distancing myself from the parasite. I imagined that the thoughts I'm having the parasites thoughts not mine. Doing this allows me to hear them without attaching to them. I see the parasite giant tick like bug that has many miles with sharp teeth. It uses uses it smiles to speak the thoughts and then any fear they caused me at gobbles up with its sharp teeth. This image reminds me that while the thoughts happened in my head and I'm not the one generating them know that if you try this technique or any other. The parasite is sneaky. It will try to convince you that doing this isn't healthy. Because has it covers up the real you or maybe it will tell you that it will never work etc when you find this happening. Try Not to argue with the parasite just observe as best you can on another trick is to intentionally change the words. You're hearing when you have a lot of intrusive thoughts start saying to yourself or out loud. If he can nonsense words like the kind of thing you hear Aliens Speaking in Star Wars. Continue this without stopping for as long as you can. This also works with random words just thinking thinking or saying them one. After the other for instance the Red Pencil under the bridge ask Tacos to work on farms in the dark. Sometimes they are so goofy they will make you laugh. If you can say these things out loud say them as loud and for as long as you can it can help make the other thoughts. Go Away

"That's a good one. I mean the best thing to do really is to work with whatever is around. You like you're at a party at somebody's house and you know they put on a nice spread so you're standing there next to the roast beef shrimp or whatever it is the rotel and you can say like this rotel. Have you tried this. This is incredible rotel. It is as spicy issues. I like it. I could eat a like a bucket of this stuff right. 'CAUSE and it's right there pull from what's around. You'll see comedians do this when when when they're I'm trying to fill their act out the work with somebody in the audience because they're right there. The only risk with that is because I hate small talk terrible at got it. I mean I can do it but I don't enjoy it. It's not fun at all. The only risk with that is. There's always that one person in the room where you say man this Rotel dip. I could eat all of this and that person says I don't eat dairy because I consider the dairy industry to be extremely cruel to cows. Yeah that is a gamble and you and I always find that person. It is a gamble to do that. I just think it's so much better than all of a sudden saying I was thinking of taking up sailing sailing the problem. Where're they going with that? The problem with this recipe of ask three questions and then share something personal. You need to listen and carefully to the answers. Because you've gone in there you're you're you're shying your socially awkward and you dread parties but here you go you're gonNA you're gonNA start by asking. How do you like all this snow? SNOWER gutten and then you're going to ask A question about can you believe Adam. SANDLERS getting Oscar Buzz. And then you're GONNA ask third question about I'm thinking about getting elaborate doodle. See the first one we think about all this snow were having and you're not really listening to the answer and the person then share something with you like well I used to like the snow until I wrecked my car in a blizzard and While I've never really regained the use of my left arm because you didn't hear the answer asking about Adam Sandler. Dive seemed like such a really insensitive. Exactly tool yeah you do have to listen. You have to be a good listener to be a good conversationalist you gotta listening and I guess you know you can prep some stuff that the whole thing about. What do you think about this snow? Oh I mean what can I I start. I get the sweats when I when I think about asking someone about a question like that and I'll give you the example. I was playing golf at this club. Played at this club for years. And this is one guy no there and he's nice to me but he's a gruff older guy. He's gruff right. I haven't seen him for for a long time every time. I've seen him a little nervous around. Well they were building a new clubhouse right and they had moved in yet but they're rebuilding it. I haven't been there in. Yeah I don't know six weeks two months and I run into Mr Gruff and last time I saw it was like one storey now. It's like three stories and I said set the gruff. I thought this would be you know I be safe back. I said. Can you believe the progress. That's being made. How big this building is? And he turns to me and he says yeah I can believe it. It's called Workman it's called design. I'm going what he's that was it was it was. I was throwing out the obvious. Yes the building has gone up three months. You know what he was rude rude to you and sending you a message and you didn't have to stand there and be polite one more but then he was very nice to me you know. It's just that I was stating the obvious obvious. The building in three months got bigger. Do well what are you supposed to do walk up to gruff and go. Hey how you been having seen well would you mind taking like two fingers just kind of palpitation. This weird yet you feel it heals like like like a bird's egg right next to my gruff would have gone with that. Be More than can you believe. Can you believe the building is up person. Do with people whose I media while he was but the next time I saw the guy was very nice because he felt bad about being mean to you the last time no growth doesn't feel put spa gala Mars Review sent right to your phone text movies. You eight hundred eighty five sharing. I read an interesting article on. I think it was Huffington Ping Ten post Looking back on the the last decade between the year two thousand ten and you know midnight on New Year's Eve New Year's here's Day to twenty twenty They came up with the words that define the decade and I was reading through it and I was like yeah these are words. Some of these words didn't didn't even exist before the last decade. But when you look at them all together yet kind of really says where we are like one of the words was Hashtag so Hashtag until fairly recent history was known as the pound sign. That's true right. Yeah nobody knew what you were talking about Hashtag Foam. Oh the acronym foam. Oh fear of missing out it got added to the Dictionary Merriam Webster put it in two thousand sixteen but it was in the Oxford dictionary before for that not only was foam. Not a word but the idea of foam. Oh wasn't really thing like looking at other people's lives on social social media and feeling that you were missing something because you weren't living not like I think it was most finally focused at teenage girls you know there's there's a group of teenage girls. There's five of them. Somebody's GonNa have a party and all of a sudden. The one who wasn't invited looks on her phone and sees that they're they're we're having fun and they could be that's foam. Oh and they could be doing it in a mean way or they could just realize. Here's another word that that the word binge has been around for a long time but describing a TV show is binge. -able would not have made sense in like nineteen ninety one. Not at all. Because you you didn't have have the opportunity to Ben's anything bench was always associated with drinking I have found that one of the ways that my TV habits have changed and a weird thing happened at my house over the Christmas break.

I'm like I'm GonNa when I can watch the whole season in one afternoon like it drives me crazy now if I can't watch multiple episodes of something I'm doing with a marvelous Mrs Mazel and I I think it may be with the exception of the Sopranos The only TV show that I've ever done that with but aren't you glad that you can.

"Has to agree fact. I think the entire Kardashian plan could be aliens. They're increasingly looking like them. I think the guy that does the ADS on TV for that group that can patch together. Seal back whatever. That thing is called the seal stuff. I like that guy to todd. I do commercial where he builds a boat out of glass. Yeah and then he takes over the over the everglades Nelson love. Yeah and he says there's alligators. There's below here but my boat's going to hold up. I don't know if that product really works but I believe him. I don't need it for anything I wanted. I do. I see I Taylor Swift. Maybe not all aliens or credentialing. Life she is. There's something about her. That is other worldly. Well I mean China Explain Nicholas Cage any other way. All that's good. I think. The blonde anchors on Fox News. Aw Yanni Yanni's amazing. That is the music from another galaxy. That's exactly right. It it takes takes someone from another galaxy to understand it. There are a lot of people that walk amongst us. That are a little bit different different. Yeah it doesn't mean they're evil no no. There's the meanest extraordinary I mean are. Are they here just to observe us into report back. Why are they here? One of the things that the British astronaut Helen Sharman said was We expect aliens to be carbon based lifeforms like us. But that that's not necessarily the case case and they may be so small that they're not visible to us. I haven't thought about that. Yeah I mean. There's little people or little. Whatever whatever's whatever's there's also a theory that the aliens may be aquatic and live in the ocean? We know more about the move than we know about the deepest parts of the ocean. Oh isn't that amazing that they discovered creatures in the depths of the ocean that they never knew existed or something called the ocean. So you remember that there was news stories about this mysterious home that people could hear all around the world where it was coming from. I thought it was the military or government or Blah Blah Blah. Anyway they solve the mystery of the home an enormous undersea volcano. Oh is that right.

You're doing it again and I didn't know what I was is doing this. What am I doing in? I took my salad and I noticed that I have to put everything in thirds so the chicken. The salad was crazy nestle. That's what it is all MAC mixed up together. It was a chicken Caesar Salad's who had a hit a separate the chicken from the lettuce and the Croutons and then Naida an order. And I never noticed that I do that. It had it must take forever to go to lunch with you. It's bizarre to myself I. He knows not normal and so question. Wait so you'll eat a bite of chicken and then you'll chew that swallow it then. You bite a lettuce to swallow than you would accrue time. No now I go through the chicken I all of it. I marches around the play. Yeah I actually count the chicken to which is how weird it is so you know. 'cause they come at six strips you know so I miss your. They're six there I don't count the Croutons for some reason or the lettuce but but but mothers disappointed to hear that. I'm just saying it's I. It's like those people that The order sub sandwich and they'll have to rip off the Ham or the meat. That's hanging over the edge because it's not perfect. Yeah Yeah it's just just it's really really eat an order. You don't do it in level of gratification. It's not like you're saving whatever. It is the best for last. How does how do you determine I'm in the order that you eat things in right-left is just weird? You just answered that like is this to me is not that weird I mean.

Should I Be Freaking Out About All This Recession Talk?

Should I Be Freaking Out About All This Recession Talk?

"Tony Dwyer is here. He's chief market strategist at Canaccord genuity. Tony Welcome and you're saying you think we have had some the mini recessions but they're over now and it's clear sailing on on the show a few weeks ago we actually we called for a correction classic strategy and I I called it right but we you know it's it's John the Airways so it was a few weeks ago that we thought that the sentiment got bad enough and that some of the data was already discounted that it was especially on the ten tenure no yield dropping the ten year yield. It was time to get more offensive so the supporting evidence to that in the mini recession call is if you look back at two thousand eleven two thousand twelve when the pigs were there and Greece was going to get knocked out of the euro and the euro was going to break up. That's as bad as a trade war right so the ten year. No you'll got back below one and a half percent percents what was interesting is not tober. Two thousand eleven the stock market bottom down nineteen point six percent the tenure didn't bottom until July of that year so in that meantime the S. and P. early twenty two percent led by the defensive into the ten year yield low in July off their you went up up and additional thirty eight percent two until the ten year got over three and three percent so the whole point here is offense should be on the field not because I have some great economic prognostication Asian but all signs are that the ten year made allow and if that's true it's replicating the two thousand eleven twelve two thousand fifteen sixteen period. Were there was clearly an industrial recession or are you making a call about the ten year going back to three percent or above or I think it will go back to two and a half percent. Nobody on the Planet Planet Kelly thought that we were going to go back to one and a half percent at this point ten years into a cycle right so what I think is happening is going back and looking at the nineteen fifty sorry to do it to you going back and looking at the nineteen fifties. There were four recessions from one thousand nine hundred forty nine thousand nine hundred sixty one. They were very brief. The market only went down about twenty percent each time time and then the market went rip into new highs very similar to now and I think technology just in time inventory. More consumption is a percentage. GDP is preventing that official recession but clearly were having these mini recessions driven by global industrial output and maybe hold argument over whether we are aren't going to have one on keeps confusing the picture because what's really happening. Is You have a bunch of growth scares you have quarters or GDP goes negative or almost goes to zero. You have market correction of ten to twenty percent but that's it's a different story than everyone who keeps bracing for. We're going to have another financial crisis in here. It comes again Tony. Let me ask you this. Though I mean think about what just happened in the last couple of weeks we've seen a major moderation in the talk about trade. We've seen massive stimulus in China. We've seen of stimulatory action by the. We've had this balance in rates. No one thought they were going to go down to one five or four or five or something like that. It just seems like we're in a spot here to get out of your mini recessions what we need to do ten years on from this economic crisis that we had. It seems like it's getting a little untenable isn't it. I mean that's the thing is it sustainable and the other point about getting back up to three thousand. It doesn't break out so what's the thing that breaks it out this time in a sustainable fashion. ECB totally disappointed in action last week there. They're coming. Terry in terms of what they were going to do to make sure that inflation got back to where they want it to be. As what drove rates in the market in the spike in the tenure they got ahead of it not by the raised by Blah Blah so I don't really care if it's twenty five or fifty basis points if they do fifty basis points on Wednesday and say we're done for the rest of the time. Market's GONNA get creamed right. They need to get ahead of the market. The highest interest rate cannot be the Fed funds rate right so what gets us over three thousand and that Dan again the the global economy's week. I'm not going to be the straps getting on here telling you oh it's good. It's getting less bad in the data. If you look at the purchasing managers there's breadth the purchasing managers index positive that's inflected off below the same thing with the OCD leading indicators competent leading indicators for the thirty six countries countries. They follow. It's inflicting off the low you can't have the market is a negative when you hit the highest level of all time but the sequential data's rolled over so that's a sale and then you hit the worst level fall time and the squinched out is getting better and that's a sale to right so. I think that the data is going to get better. Give us the playbook then what does it. What does it look like offense. I I mean Kelly. This is offense this everybody's meaning consumer discretionary financials industrials the motorcycle parts attack and again. This was our call from a couple of weeks ago where you get this reflation trade as long as the. Fed stays ahead of the curve and what shut this whole game people to put this on before their decision Wednesday. That's a big call. You make a caller. You don't know you know the views of fast money. No I'm not the greatest of all times but but again and the whole key to this thing is the Fed has to get ahead of the curve. They have to convince the market that we're not going to become Europe and go into negative I so I asked a salesperson today. Who I begged literally bagged two weeks ago. I did it on their please. Refinance your debt. Please one point four percent refinance your loan right right so I went over to the desk today I said. Did you refinancial no my my husband wants me to wait for lower rates okay. That's what the Fed wants to avoid read. Stop waiting for lower rates as low as it's going to get. Let's get in there so you know this kind of churning. We're seeing in the market today. I think has more to do with got extremely overbought in two two weeks right so maybe oil is an excuse and the Fed meeting who's going to really take an offensive playbook into bed meeting and I don't want. I don't want to suggest to to the to the viewers that I'm GonNa be calling the next tick. I'm awful at it. That's why should refinance. I think I think they they should refinance. You could have a pullback in rates. You know what's going to be interesting is to see how Saudi Arabia response to the oil crisis. You know it's not a news item or they blow up their biggest thing and they're like okay. We're good so I'm kind of waiting and to see what the global response is to the whole attack and that may create a temporary law. You can take advantage of and get offense. Thanks thank you

"Dating apps apparently have a tendency to become habit forming to the point where it can be called an addiction some people end up becoming so addicted that it gets in the way of jobs education even social groups the study conducted Ohio state identified two traits often found in people who have especially bad dating app addictions loneliness and social anxiety that's only for me I checked them because they become part of the normal scam because I because of my OCD it's not so much that I am lonely I have social anxiety is that so much of that though is that I'm it is the same with email or or Twitter or Instagram like you'll check one you cleared out you'll see what's up there you'll see what's new you'll see if you got any notifications you could Instagram do the same thing you go to your email to the same thing I respond to my texts all the bubbles are gone no notifications and then I find myself starting from the top and going through and it honestly is is rabbit hole that I can sit in all day total vicious are going in circles oh wait now I get it so so you add these apps to that because a messaging component and of course there's a people like me are not like me on this app component because you could be getting a match at any moment as of now at those things that a rotation and now I got that many more things that I'm checking all the time do you get some all from the dating apps because like if I'm not on there may be somebody really hot gonna pop yeah I do I feel like when I'm not on the apps I might be missing it yeah like like all like somebody else is gonna get this girl now now is the time when that girl that I've been waiting that you know that and that that fictitious figurative girl that the one that I've never met that now she's on there and I'm not in it for me yeah he's there for Lawler yes she is yeah she is very exciting in a the author of the study said the social anxiety loneliness alone don't lead to compulsive use but the presence of bold trades almost always lead to over use and negative life consequences he said I've seen people who use dating apps compulsively they take their phones out when they're at dinner with friends there in groups they really can't stop swiping which leads to negative outcomes I don't look at it in public though because if I'm being really honest I'm a little ashamed swipe in public I've seen you swipe at a dinner that we are at well I

"OCD? It is the show carry lucky alongside how are you carry fine? How are you? Doing. Well. We're having internet connection fund today. I see I know. That's always a good time. Wasn't. It's always a good time. It's always a good time. It is okay. It's always big fun. It's it's a Tuesday. We've got a lot going on lots to get to. We will talk with Grover Norquist. He is the president of Americans for tax reform, AT dot org. We talk about AFC. Have you come up with a name for that segment yet the AFC segment? Didn't my talk about yesterday when we say. Have you ever came up with it? File I like that one AFC file the AFC report. Somebody actually suggested Chris I think emailed me and said AFC three sixty. Cooper, three sixty. It's kind of interesting because I guess his is a show called a C three sixty eight hundred sixty I don't. I don't you don't watch it. I don't really watch what he's drunk on New Year's Eve. That's fine. That's Cooper is fun. So, yeah, we're we still have to come up with an idea, but I talked to to Grover Norquist about AFC. And I'm like do we make her the face of the democrat party? I mean, he's like, absolutely. That's interesting. He said, yeah. Well, if the Democrats aren't going to back away from the dumping, she sang and the ridiculous, you know, bad economy and bad mathematics in ridiculous socialism calls and so on if they're not going to step away from her and refuted, then let them let them live. Listen, you you're going to stand by her. Then you have to live by what she saying. So when it comes time for the election in two thousand twenty when there are debates, whoever the democrat happens to be. They're gonna have to answer this question. Do you want to seventy percent tax rate for people? You just got to pay thirty one trillion dollars for universal everything is that what is that? What you're gonna do do that. It'll be interesting to see how the answer. Now. I I'll even know who's going to be on that stage yet, the Democrats. I would imagine probably won't have sixteen or seventeen like the Republicans had, but it's going to be a lot. I guess depending on I'll make this prediction if Hillary Clinton is running again, which would be ridiculous. But if she is you probably won't see as many people running in the Democratic Party afraid of her. They're all afraid of her and her husband and the whole Clinton machine. That she's not running where do you know about? Julia Castro who is the former mayor San Antonio. And as the HUD secretary achieved nothing, I'm not really sure what he thinks. He's done to deserve to be the president of the United States. But God bless anybody can run. Could be a Robert Francis Batta, aerobic allegedly. He's the one Obama wants to run but Castro was close with Obama. So as bombing giving him the high sign to is Obama, the king-maker or is Hillary Clinton as the king-maker Joe Biden, Joe big effing deal, Biden could be carry. It couldn't he has. I think he's the he's kind of leaning that way can vary. It'd be a big f in the last couple of days. Yeah. And delay. Oh, yeah. What we call him the bef? Yes. Yes. Definitely. That could happen, which would be hilarious. I think Elizabeth Warren her the president will present will call her Pocahontas right there on stage. Yeah. So that would be interesting. Just for that. For that matter will Bernie Sanders weren't again, what is the eighty now. I don't know health care for all free college. It would be fun. I'd have a better. Absolutely. Because I don't have. I don't have a Trump. I've tried Donald Trump. I know. And who knows why I just I can I can candy mannerisms that'd be fantastic. Huge the best you've ever seen. But I I can't say his voice, which is interesting. I think that I think my voice deep what it is. Let's go with that has too much of that. So so we have that we have Grover Norquist real Kelly McNamee from the GOP the president's going to speak tonight. Let's start the speculation game. Why don't we do that? By the way, K Pam in in Portland is our great affiliate out. There was running us at nine o'clock at night. The now ruling is at six PM, and I appreciate you. And for those of you jumping in the car get off work in Portland, or you're just riding around in you pop on your favorite station, K, Pam KPM. And you're like what the hell is this just take a breath? Yeah. It's gonna be okay. Give it a few weeks, and we will verbally in educationally. And and with parodies and everything else. Knock knock you out of your senses in numb you to the show. At least. Yeah. Exactly. Right. Exactly. Right. So Chris in other great folks came and thank you for believing in us, and we're gonna kick some asks for each six o'clock. So tonight is is the big address first and foremost, can you remember other than the state of the union? Can you remember another time when a president decided he was going to give an address just speak to the American people that the left gotta gotta chase to refute or respond. No, I cannot. I can't either. I just find that to be so weird. And. Oh, oh, yeah. Equal time. Right. But they can't make that demand. First of all because he's the president. He's not running for election. This is this is not playing politics. This isn't even the democratic or the Republican response to a state of the union address. This is the president and the Oval Office saying, hey, I want I wanna say some of you words to the American people want to talk to the American people, and he's always best when he does that. And the Democrats are scared to death. That's why they really want to have this response. They are scared to death. What the president's going to say because what it comes down to it. He was elected because he said he was going to build the wall. He was elected because he said he was gonna fix illegal immigration. He was elected because he's talking about getting rid of the diversity lottery and all this other garbage. And these by the way, are tenants in things and issues that the Democrats agreed with him on just five years ago. Suddenly there on polar opposite sides here. And they can't give a valid reason. Why they're on a polar opposite side. Now, the networks from what I understand. And I want your opinion on this to the networks were considering whether they should even run his address, I know thoughts on that. No. I think they should absolutely. If the president wants to speak to the nation address us than we should be able to watch it. Listen to it. They need to carry it last. I checked he's the president of the United States. Yes. Yes. It doesn't matter. What your personal opinion is not you you in general, you the media. You the legacy media? It doesn't matter you run the president's address. I mean, the media would cut in to show Brock Obama playing basketball. But they don't wanna cut into have this president, actually. Give give it address to the American people. What the hell man? Did you see one of the stories that I sent you Don lemon had to say about this from? I don't know who is talking to. I think it might have been Chris Cuomo. And he was suggesting that the address be censored before Americans can hear it. What? In what way I'm not sure how that would go over. I don't even know. But that's what he was talking about with Chris Cuomo Cuomo. However, he shut down that saying no that CD can't really do that. You can't censor it. But that was done lemons idea. Let's censor it. Let's fact check it before we air it. You mentioned we did that with Obama. We'd be. Not only would we would we be racists. But we would absolutely be called out as as just politically motivated. This is the president of the United States your politics. Don't matter. He really does have the job you ever reminds me. And I'm reminded of this a lot that Jimmy Kimmel had that. What what does he call them nasty tweet negative tweets? Bad tweets. What is it is? It mean tweets thankful mean tweets and he had Brock Obama on there. And Obama was reading a tweet by by Donald Trump. Yeah. Then candidate Donald Trump and Trump tweeted something to the effect of Barack Obama. You're going to go down as the worst president in the history of the country and Obama's response was well, at least I'll go down as a president of the United States. And then everybody got a big laugh at he dropped the phone is dropping the microphone and always just hilarious to that Obama. He's just so great and the women wanna sleep with him in the men wannabe him. And all that. But the bottom line is he actually got the job. You came take away. The fact that Donald Trump is a president. And he's the current president of the United States. You can't no matter how much you hate him. You can't possibly suggest that he doesn't have the right to address the people. That elected him. Now a question that goes right along side. All this is why does Don lemon have a job in anything remotely related to news and information. I mean, how can carry June foresight is the news director at our flag. You go up to Jim and say, hey, I want to cover this press coverage by the mayor or cover the press conference by the city manager or by the the governor by whomever, but Jim I'd like to take it. Censor it go through it. And and make a decision as to whether I like what he's saying before. I mean, what's the response is going to be no Kerry? No. You cannot do that. Of course. Now, you know, I it's it's just ridiculous. It doesn't make any sense. It's harmful. To anybody and everybody who does the job lemon attempts to do. I guess. So even to that end. You know, we talk about really really bad journalism. You always have to bring up Jim Acosta, and you found this for me today. I appreciate this. Jim Acosta is a guy who rightfully had his credentials taken away because he's an idiot. And he's just he's not a good guy. He's not a good journalist. And he's only there to to play horrible questions with the president of the United States already. But he's representing him and Sarah Sanders stood up to him, and they Donald Trump stood up to him. And now Kellyanne Conway gets her chance Kellyanne Conway doesn't play. Yes. I have her phone number carry. You're gonna ask me. And I did I texted her effort saw this. It was he she called me a doll. Listen with Kellyanne. That's what happens. That's what happens is just one of those things, you know, when we come back. I'm going to play the video for those of the livestream, and I will play the audio for those of you listening on the radio of Kellyanne Conway had enough now before and let's give it away. But before we go to break do us, a journalist think that his question wasn't appropriate question. Let me go back. I'm trying to. No question away. I won't get. Okay. I don't think that we come back. I mean is that is that a question you get you get one opportunity to ask a question. That's the one you ask not me. I would not ask them. All right. So we'll have that for you. We come back. Your thoughts on what's going to be said tonight. Your thoughts on lemon singlets censor. The president your thoughts on on what the president will say an and whether you think it's appropriate. It's appropriate to have the opposing political party respond to a presidential address to the American people. Eight eight eight nine four one pags ended.

"Some people still see OCD as like a court, maybe just sort of a failure of will mayo weakness like it's just a weird thing. And if you put your mind to it, you could stop like stop pushing your fingertips down or touching the door or pacing. Just stop doing it. Other people talk about their OCD is something that makes them a little more fussy or makes them want to have things lined up. Cute. Improper on a shelf. They see one aspect the compulsions, but they don't see the obsessions or the disorder. OCD something so difficult. The World Health Organization raked OCD in the top ten of the most debilitating and disabling illnesses of any kind. Maintaining friendships, jobs, relationships, all of that takes such a different kind of work. And then there the thousand other little things that you and I don't even have to think about. And then just constant constant interruption by thoughts and images that you don't want in your brain. I think what it takes to live with OCD is courage to get up every day and find ways to make your life happen to be full person with love and hopes and dreams, and a sense of humor because OCD is only ever one part of someone. It's a dramatic part. Sure. But at the end of the day, we're all so much more. KOMO it's Theresa Bernstein. I think it's been a decent day. I got another text from my daughter. They're still driving driving all night. I'm going to try to just keep pushing the clouds and. Not think about that and just like have a little faith. That is really hard, really, really hard. But I'm working on it. This is been okay, and I really appreciate you doing it. I bean. A really had to like look internally at some of my own behaviors and reactions to things. And it's also made me think about other people who have maybe more extreme behaviors and what they must go through and the difficulties that they must face everyday. I mean. My heart. My heart goes out to them. Difficult. How hard. Really something, so thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Godless. It's ten forty, two PM. I am completely exhausted. So since it's been. Harder day. I did a lot of going up and down stairs. You know, things toward f home invaders, pulmonary embolisms in the night. SIDS, but my kids are too old for SIDS. I was talking to a friend about recording for this podcast and. I said, I just I want other people out there who have CD and you've never been diagnosed and don't know what they're going through. I just want them to feel not so alone. And she said to me, you know, Rachel, I also think that the person that this recording is going to help the most is your own child who struggles with CD doing this for that child. Do the cell over tomorrow. So good night. Eleven forty two. I'm in my room in bed in the dark, ostrich. I'm a very buttoned up person. It takes a law for me to be radically vulnerable to anyone. So this. Choice challenge and I'm proud of myself for taping what is usually so intensely private and protected in my heart and verbalizing it for once. So even with all these -iety spikes in compulsions and rituals and a truce thinking. I can't really call this. And I'm not sure what tomorrow bring. I'm not sure what mood it will be for how it will feel in it, but I feel braver tight than I did this morning. So can I things for sticking around even if some things I did. Ceiling.

"One of my earliest memories. Was my entire family. Sitting in the kitchen and everyone was crying. My parents were crying and my three older brothers were crying, and there was nothing I could do to stop that. I remember looking around thinking, there's no way to fix this. And I think that's when my OCD brain gut triggered, and it was like, okay, I'm gonna perform all of these compulsions so that no one in my family dies. Research is starting to say that OCD has deepened neurological and biological roots and is genetic OCD comes from my dad's side and my grandma suffered with greatly. She. She was the cleaning CD type. And she would have to check the stove and make sure the windows were shut and all of that multiple times before she left to go anywhere. When she was in her seventies, she had to be admitted to the mental war of our local hospital because she was so depressed. I remember going in there as a little girl. I was probably eight or nine at this time and just, you know, her her hair wasn't curled up or anything. She was just. She looked so vulnerable, I guess. I remember her just sobbing, sobbing. I don't know what to do. I'm so sad. So sad. I just wanna die in seeing that as a kid. I wish I could have a conversation with my grandmother. Saying you weren't crazy, always thought you were crazy. You weren't crazy or if you were crazy. I was crazy to imagine Rachel's grandmother thinking that she was crazy that she was the only person doing the things that she was doing. And then think about her granddaughter, Rachel and her own compulsions which she has to do right now. I'm going into my recycling so I don't have any recycling at my house. It's the recycling that's a big yellow recycling box, and it's. In the parking lot of the dental office. So I'm sure the people that work there like, oh, here comes the crazy lady can with recycle. Just pay for recycling. Pay for recycling. We have a recycling bin that comes every week, but. Apparently that's not good enough. I can't even tell you why I do this. Not someone with cleaning, see. Just like to have the recycling. I think with CD it's all about control. I can't control whether or not my kid gets shot in school shooting. I can't control whether or not my husband gets cancer. I can't control so many things. So I control these stupid little things. But I don't control them. It's my mind telling me that I have control really don't. Sometimes these compulsions compulsions are tied to other things like I'll say are get the side. You have to take the recycling this warning or Scott's gonna die on his way home from work. And then if I didn't take the recycling owning. And Scott's five minutes late, then I'm sure he's died because I didn't take the recycling. It's not. It's not logical..

"It's so I'll do things in three. I'll go up and down the stairs. Three times that happens usually if it's late at night and I'm trying to ward off a home invader. I will. Reading is hard. 'cause I sometimes just like my that switch and my brain will flick on and I'll have to read a paragraph over three times or. If I get to a certain word like again, and I read it three times, then I have to do another ritual to offset that because the that spikes, if I see that we're at three times. So OCD I'm obsessing, overseeing that word. The anxiety has risen to a level where I'm doing a compulsion performing a compulsion to get the executive to go down. The problem is. With OCD the more you engage in compulsions. The stronger you make them. Rachel has another form of OCD called harm OCD, and in high school I had that harm, oh, it's called that same stuff where like, I would imagine myself stabbing people. I would imagine myself. Hurting myself. It was awful. And I wanted to die in high school. And then I was sixteen and my mom finally took me to a psychiatrist and he said, let's I think I know what's wrong. Let's try Prozac. And for me, Prozac was the first thing that worked. I mean, it was the first thing I tried and it was the first thing that worked. Prozac worked, but. OCD got really bad when Rachel was pregnant with her son. Rachel's previous pregnancy had been twins, one died during the pregnancy and when her daughter was born, it was with complications. And Rachel was convinced that it was because she took Prozac while she was pregnant. So this next pregnancy, she went off all of her medication and it was a who's an unmitigated disaster. So I remember standing at my. K. I'm going to tell this. I'm going to tell the truth. I remember standing at..

"So my husband always jokes, why can't I be the OCD cleaning kind. Not, I don't. So when people think of OCD, they think of only. Think of only the cleaning kind, but people who have cleaning OCD would tell you, you don't want it because it's, you can't relax until you've scrubbed the bathtub for five hours. Okay, Lou. I'm gonna drop you off here. I love you have a good day. Are you going to you're walking home? Yes, yes, as usual. Like I'm not going to pretend that I pick you up. It's three bucks. A good day. Bye.

"I'm Nora mcenery. Terrible. Thanks for asking. We got this message from Rachel, the one that you just heard and we were like, yes, good point. How do you communicate the OCD brain to someone who doesn't have OCD? How do you get people? People consider like all of us who liked to say, I'm so. After we like organize our spice door to try to understand what those three words feel like to actually live because it is a hard thing to understand and not just for you. It's a hard thing to understand for us. It's a hard thing to understand for Rachel even and she's the one living. It. The minute I wake up my brain says to me what if it's today, what if they died today? What if they die today? And so I don't like to take them places all in one fecal. I'm freaked out for my daughter to join my older two kids at school. Sounds so dumb. It sounds so dumb. I know it's dumb. I know how dome it is. I know this fear isn't logical. But you can't use logic with an OCD brain. I think a lot about hidden illnesses. The ones that you can't see if it's not obvious for me, calling it a hidden illness, you know, you can't see him. Mental health often falls into that category and CD also within mental health falls into that category. And those of us who don't have OCD we do talk about a casualty and we kind of -ssume that OCD is just people who love cleaning or who closed the door too often or who just worry too much. I would love to come talk to you and be honest. But what it's like living with OCD. Humility time. A lot of our best ideas here at TI come from you specifically you. I don't know if you're the terms and conditions of downloading this podcast, but granted me access to your thoughts, feelings, and emails. You're all fascinating, but this is an idea that came from you or one of you. Rachel did not come into the studio for this episode. Instead after we got her message, we reached out and we had her a few other volunteers, people who have OCD share what one day in the life of their OCD is like, we all agreed on a day and these three people each turn on their phones and shared what was happening with their OCD throughout the day. So this episode is Rachel's experience believe I'm saying this out loud because I worry about. People not understanding what this is. And this episode is Alex is experience. My name is Alex. I'm twenty seven years old. And I'm currently short story format editor for a literary journal, and this episode is Teresa's experience. Or a day of their experience. One day in August of.

"Realize that that thought or urges caused by ocd it's this biochemical problem in the brain it's the rain sending false messages that the person can't readily recognize false the brain gets stuck in gear and it can't shift to the next thought so now we've got a lot of awareness around what's going on right we wanna go wash your hands where like wait a minute that's not me that's my ocd and this ocd is being caused by my brain my brain is locking it stuck in gear it's sending false messages my brain is horrible at the game telephone and so there's some wariness out here key refocus so work around this step three refocus work around the cd thoughts by focusing your attention on something else at least for a few minutes do another behavior this is where if you go back to the handwashing example i have people that will tie a ribbon round you know the faucet or the door leading the bathroom to just bring the awareness if they don't already have it it's like wait a minute there's not ribbon about to go wash my hands now that i just you know do something that is left my hands and credibly dirty about the dinner or like that then you bet might might not be a bad idea but if i'm just doing it because i just feel kinda key or just touch something that i think maybe somebody else touched then that's one would say wait a minute that's not me that's my ocd step one right up to react tribute okay my brain is kind of getting locked in gear so then refocus i am going to turn and do another behavior so and then step four is to revalue do not take the thought face value because it's not significant in itself so when you are playing these behavior therapy techniques you can change the way that you respond to the thoughts and urges and as we know is the way the brain works when in the podcast about habit change you can physically change the way your brain works which is amazing right and and if you look at the book brain lock they have functional brain scan images showing before and after of cognitive behavioral therapy with cd so the it does help their scientific evidence that kinda behavioral therapy alone actually causes chemical.

"The person with ocd gives in and performs a compulsive behavior but here's the problem fortunately performing that that behavior sets off vicious cycle so it might bring momentary relief but is more compulsive behaviors performed these obsessive thoughts and feelings become stronger and they're more demanding more to nationless so in this step one of brain lock this relabeling the first thing that one does is your goal is to recognize when you have these thoughts or you want to the to carry out these actions by learning to say in my having my wife's tired of me i'll say this at times just to in any type of kind of ocd light behavior that's not me that's my ocd so that's the first step win you recognize when you have awareness around and obsession and you wanna perform that compulsion and it just seems overwhelming the anxiety get so high first thing have awareness relabel that's not me that's my cd they're step one sept two is to react tribute so it's important to realize that the density the intrusiveness of the thought of the urge is caused by ocd that's a key it's caused by ocd that's why laid out the groundwork of what oh c d is before that these structures of the brain that they're they are not perform the they're not working properly in the book brain lock again dr schwartz says that that this ocd is probably related to a biochemical imbalance in the brain so we call the problem brain lock in the book because there's four key structures of the brain and they become locked together so then the brain starts sending false messages that was part with the serotonin stuff that was kind of geeking out about that you're the brain is not playing a really good game of telephone his start sending false messages at the person can't recognize his false because now go back to the podcast because why would her brain lightness right it's our brain so this is like the brain getting stuck in gear and it can't shift to the next thought so look at that so you you recognize this obsession you identify relabel it's not me that's not me it's my ocd and then reatreat bute.

"Someone with with clinical ocd that is something that they have been trying to do for a long time and but that that that can actually bring on the level of kind of even more worry and fear they can get so overwhelming that it takes away somebody's ability to function and there's a myth that people though cd you're kind of just weird and roddick or crazy and that there's no hope for them but with treatment as we're talking about here it is extremely helpful and people with cd can go onto live very very full lives so let's talk about what the most effective treatment for ocd is if you're still with me at this point and maybe you or someone who suffers with cd or you know somebody in your family that does or you just want more information on it this is where the book brain lock comes in so brain lock is a book by dr jeffrey m schwartz it's been around for quite a while and dr schwartz has come up with these four steps now this is that cognitive behavioral therapy part but we're gonna we're gonna ask some additional information here so there's four steps that that work and the first step is relabel and we're gonna use literally here all the steps have ours so relabel so the first thought is to recognize that this intrusive obsessive thought or urge is the result of ocd what does that mean so let's go back to obsession so in of session is an intrusive it's an unwelcome distressing thought or mental image and the compulsion the compulsion is the behavior that people with ocd perform in this attempt to exercise the fears and anxieties that are caused by their obsession so the person with those d usually recognizes that the urge to wash or check or touch things or repeat numbers is you know ridiculous at times the kind of uses these phrases ridiculous or senseless and the feeling though is so strong that the untrained mind that's the key the untrained mine becomes overwhelmed and then.

"So medication there is medication that works with ocd and it's this class of drugs called sri's selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor have that one and so bear with me here so a lot of researchers believe that in ocd suffers have this this abnormality or an imbalance in this neuro transmitter this brain chemical called serotonin and so sarah tonen is the chemical in the brain that sends messages between the brain cells and it's thought to be involved in regulating a lot of functions so from eighty to memory sleep and that's why these are is often used to treat ocd the sr is the medications although it's not really known here's the funny part is not really known why the medication seem to help people some people with cd because a lot of us are is are used for depression as well but the brain is made up of just millions of these neurons these interconnected brain cells and messages travel along these cells electrically down a wire but here's what happens when the message reaches the end of the neuron in this if you've had any genetic classes or may be seen this pitcher and i always used to think it looks like a almost like a knee joint but you know where the cartlidge would go there's nothing there but so if you've seen those so it's like when a message reaches the end of the neuron than it has to jump this gap that gaps called a synapse to the next cell or cells and so here it's cheap by this neurons the serotonin that neurons releasing tiny amounts of this neuro transmitter serotonin into the gap between the nerve cells i hope i haven't lost everybody is fascinating right so brain imaging studies have been used a show that the differences so the brain of somebody with ocd and those without cd but the scientific community is split over whether what researchers have found is is a cause for cd or it's a result of having cd but so here's what happened so the job of the nerve cells to send messages back and forth and this is where it kind of made sense to me it's kinda like a telephone wire.

"And i know the hard part was i'm not i'm probably going to tell very many stories because a lot of the cd stories you know yeah you can talk about handwashing generic in washing some of the ones that illustrate this concept better of the genesis of ocd are very specific i'm thinking of one right now where you know it's hard to talk about you know to to kinda give specific set don't wanna to violate anyone's company charity but what take handwashing for example though that is one where if you that that can be about germs and so i can tell you i've worked with many people that have severe ocd around handwashing and there really is you know there's the thought that hey i don't like germs and then there's also the the ocd that may be started when someone learned that someone in their family maybe had a serious illness and died i may have had a couple of those experiences and from a catching contracting disease and so then the person especially if they're young and they're trying to process that and they don't process it really well then they become obsessed with germs and so at that point then the comes from this place of not wanting to catch disease that that they believe played into the role of maybe killing or a loved one that they had so so again experts that begins in childhood is different than the cd that begins adults so for example recent review of twin studies have shown that genes play a larger role when ocd starts in childhood forty five to sixty five percent compared to when it starts adulthood twenty seven to forty percent and izzo cd brain disorder research jess ocd involves problems in communication between the front part of the brain and the deeper structures so these brain structures use a chemical messenger called serotonin and we'll talk about that in a bit and serotonin is it's a messenger it relays messages between the neurons and the belief is that the serotonin is not quite able to do its job to deliver the messages maybe i'll get let me get this right now in pardon the kinda geek out a little bit here so.

"Which might be mine from the past are you obsessing with it you have to always have the number thirteen on something or something go wrong in your life or do you have to tap out thirteen or count to thirteen that's when we know that things can kind of get rough so how common is oh cd best estimates are about that about one in one hundred adults or maybe between two and three million adults in the us currently have ocd and this is roughly the same number of people that live in the city of houston texas not to say that everyone in houston texas has cd there are point that out too that's one hundred are two to three million adults i think that kind of shows how common the extremo cd is or cd becomes debilitating there are also at least one and two hundred or about a half a million kids and teens have ocd and that thought it was interesting same number of kids who have diabetes we hear a lot about juvenile diabetes but not a lot about ocd that can be debilitating for kids and so that means a four or five kids with cd are likely to be enrolled in any average size elementary school and in a medium to large high school there could be twenty students struggling with the challenges cosby ocd and this is really clinical ocd oc effects men women children of all racism backgrounds equally so ocd is no respecter persons at what age ocd begin it can start at any time from preschool to adulthood and although he does occur earlier ages the international ocd foundation says that they're generally two age ranges when ocd first appears first ones usually around ten to twelve and then the second one is in the late teens and early adulthood and i thought this was interesting though cd inherited research shows it oh ocd does run in families and that there is a genetic component likely in the role of the development of the disorder so genes appear to be the only partly responsible for causing the disorder and here's the hard part is nobody really knows what other factors might be involved and it could even be illness or an ordinary life stressor that might do things iety and it might trigger the activity of these genes associated with symptoms of ocd.

"Yeah and so when when i go to beat one of those like it's interesting because the thing that ocd does is when you get it right you release so when i walk through the door and i get it right for even if it's for a moment i'm like i got it right what do you mean when you get it right like if i know that like i go and i opened a door and it's a lot of visual imagery for me so like if i go to like walk off the stage for example and i step off at in my head you remember i was talking about negative nostalgia if i have something in my head that is connected to that year right after that incident happened and my sister died like there was a place that i spent a lot of time up north and there was a certain chair that i spent a lot of time sitting in and so there was a lot of anxiety and so that chair really connected to my brain as a place that i spent a lot of time in a pretty bad place and just like memories would like every human being you know you hear a song and it takes you back to a relationship or a moment like that stuff's just all in your brain and i think people with ocd they get caught on like if you can't beat an image it doesn't ever go away it always circles back so if i go to step off these stairs and i see that chair my brain goes if you keep walking you're gonna have a fucking panic attack man you're going to be back in that place and so i will come back over and i'll kind of try to wipe that image from my mind and place it onto a positive image a happy moment for my life just a replacement image i'll put that in there and if i can get that image in walking ford then that is that is what i mean by getting it.
