Britney Spears' Ex-Husband Wants Her Back
"Events daily pop. Hey remember when Britney Spears married Jason Alexander for just fifty five hours. Well, he wants her back now. Yes. They're right. Jason was spotted at a free privy protests at the courthouse yesterday he told us weekly. He still has love for Britney and he'd quote definitely the open rekindling their romance quote if they would give us an honest chance. Is he serious right now old what is furious? Is this heat in? Los. Angeles put that photo backup with the orange shirts. I can see that under boop sweat real quick. You know how hot it is in this Place look at. That alone. Look better though. Her he looks good. But I just like what is this guy I mean he clearly has nothing going on like the fact that he's GonNa show up even just give us weekly any sort of exclusively come on. This was how many years ago twelve thirty claims that two thousand four was when this fifty five, our wedding are. happened. They were childhood friends they got married very briefly. Now they've been I think in touch a little bit throughout the years I doubt recently my goodness. So the things he had to say about Sam you guys San has to be so livid right now. Right. So he said I got to see this code and he said I don't know him. He looks like he's in good shape but I'm in good shape. So Bravo to him she's got some type of feelings for him I. Guess I'm like Oh, my Gosh San if he ever sees you, he's going to punch you in the face. He's never gonNA. See Him this guy ever not a factor in her life, and this is the problem. What happens is even though he went there with good intentions quote unquote this just makes everything that Brittany's fighting for a spectacle and it makes it joke and if he really loved her and really wanted to be a part of her life and really wanted to help her, he would have stayed away from that camera and not became this headline. One hundred percent, and also for him to be like if they gave us an honest chance, she doesn't want you like I. Don't know who they. Does not she has no interest in rekindling your relationship I. Promise you that I don't know where he gets off thinking. Oh, if they just would just believe in our love like she's not petitioning for you bro at all, she's not looking for you in any day. Ever Gosh tell it like it is mortgage. Ed I love the. If a man sit outside like that for me I would feel some type of way about it in the. Sweat It's always flattering, right? It's always flattering to see. Talk about how he wants you back I. Mean it's Nice to hear whether you care or not of. The protest was held at the courthouse because there was a hearing about getting Brittany's data removed as conservative as we told, you yesterday according to court documents I'm really wants her care manager Jody Montgomery to step in permanently. So Jason has thoughts on that to telling US weekly Britney doesn't want to be under the conservative ship and he wants her to get what she rightly deserves. So how does he? Oh, how does he know he has not been in contact with her is will be. Governed from ghost talking to this man talent him where Britney saying he has no idea and Britney has said exactly what she wants and this for him. This was kind of a bold move because this hearing wasn't about changing anything this hearing was about let's check in. Let's see what's happening. The real hearing will come once they file papers and once she puts in court writings that she wants this change. This guy's making it worse for her get off her bag they offer not it's just. Weird. Do you think the intention because he wants Brittany back or he wants his own fame or he just was truly going there out of love for Brittany, and truly feels that she feels trapped and was trying to be a voice for her? What do you think I can't believe this I can't believe this is our Abe. Block. Are you kidding he therapy for fifteen minutes and it's going to be four because this is the last time we're talking about this. This is insane person. We have not heard one word about this person in sixteen years six I'm too hot over this. Crazy. You'll get the fifty. He'll get the fifty because what will happen is Cara Delevingne will see him on the news noticing that he's getting airtime. So then she'll date him to make Ashley Benson Jealous, and then he'll get twenty minutes. Oh my God. We're bringing car delving into this way. Okay. Well, let's move onto a couple that we've also talked about a couple of times before. New Year. So Tomorrow Laurie Lachlan and her husband Massimo are scheduled to be sitting for their roles in the college admissions gets scandal at the same time. The government's recently filed sentencing memo raises questions about what their daughter Olivia Jade may have known. So here's the new stuff. You guys. So Libya is never mentioned by name in the document, but they're quote. Younger. Daughter is referred to specifically prosecutors say in one incident Laurie Mossy Ma and they're quote younger daughter discussed how to avoid the possibility that a high school counselor would disrupt their scheme. So the family has not spoken out, but a source close to the family says their daughters had nothing to do with this. So if what the prosecutors are saying is true. That Olivia Jay did know about this do you feel she should be punished as well as her parents? Here She did no I just hello even if she knew or did not know she is a child and was a minor at this point in her life. That age you do as your parents tell you to do you follow suit you. You'd even realize the difference between right and wrong I could barely drive through MC. At that point by myself, give me a break. There's no reason that this young girl should be punished for anything like I understand her parents made a mistake we've been talking about it when I was reading the research is warning I was like for over a year literally been talking about this now for over a year and it's dwindled down to two or three months and five months number one. The she was seventeen. Leave her out of it. It's not relevant for her to be involved with the fact that their names are mentioned I get it. They need to be to kind of paint a full picture you do what your parents, how you to do. This is how we're getting into college. Sweetie you go. Okay. Mom just let me know where I need to be et Cetera not true Morgan you do what your parents tell you to do but let's say let's say you've got some awful parents right? Like I'm not saying these people are saying you got some awful parents and they say honey were broke I want you to go steal some milk and some candy bars and some cereal, and you know what? Go ahead and grab that xbox to they won't even suspect you. You're a teenager just go do it. Okay. If they get caught that could go to Juvie or get some sort of legal. Question. So Matt Your question. Your mother. Makes you sign your name on legal documents that puts you as a as the lender on alone and your mother then defaults on it ten years later should be. Held Liable Harris of thousand dollar loan that your mother made you sign for when you're seventeen or would you fight it? Well that's different because you would never have hypothetical situation that happened in. Dollar Loan. Drill, trust. It happens on sweet bitter. I just saw show where it happened. So where do you bring up that example? I agree with Morgan when you're seventeen years old if my mother would have told me sign the papers for this D to my kidney I wouldn't have asked two questions about it because my mother told me. But my problem is. This is the problem my judicial system we're sitting here worried about what a seventeen year old may or may not have known meanwhile Brianna Taylor's killers walking around free and the people who accosted Eliza McLean have not been nothing has been done to them. We know exactly what happened. We've seen the camera footage we've gone through everything. Why are we focusing on this and not focusing on what we do know?

That's according to going around telling people you need to live for us. How dare you do your job? The filing states that Julie aggressively asked. What the counselor was telling you.

No. The court document breaking down the case against a celebrity couple was filed by the U. S attorney's office is head of the pairs sentencing, which is coming up on Friday.
10 Ways to Defund the Police Today
"If you haven't yet listened to yesterday's episode of the breakdown, this is really a two part series, and so I would encourage you to go back and listen to yesterday's episode where I break down the pushback that the movement to defend police is getting from some people. It's really rooted and misunderstanding. And introduce the work of the scholar Alex Towel in his book the end of policing. A brilliant must have book one of the most important books for this moment. And then I share Alex broke down ten ways that we could de-fund police, but increased public safety and yesterday I share the first five and today I wanna get to the final five. Step, number six is that we need to fund school wellness centers. Now, unsurprisingly, putting more people and more police rather in schools has only fueled the school to prison pipeline and what else did we really think they were going to do if they weren't going to be an arrest kids, police are doing in America schools exactly what we thought they do. Police officers don't have specialized training in adolescent or childhood development. They're not mental health experts. They're not social workers or psychologists. They're not school counselors are educators. They are literally law enforcement officers, normally whose primary training is in how to use a gun. Okay. And you put them in schools and what they do is they be arrest people. It is better safer and cheaper. If you fund school wellness centers in cities, like Minneapolis have started to experiment with replacing armed police officers with something called students, safety coaches who specialize in mental health and restorative justice in de Escalation and building positive relationships with students in one school arrest decreased by eighty percent arrest decreased by eight percent after implementing this program. We need in in defunding police and removing them out of schools and many school districts around the country, including Seattle, and Denver, and Minneapolis. If said, you know what we're moving the police out of our schools. And we need. When we remove those police, we need to fund school wellness centers, which takes me to step number seven. We need to dispatch dispute resolution experts to handle neighborhood and domestic conflicts listen to this. Domestic and. Neighborhood. Disputes. Are. Among. The single most common calls for law enforcement accounting for up to fifty percent of all calls in most areas. Now, the vast majority of those calls are not violent in most end without an arrest. But in some jurisdictions police listen to me, police are required to make an arrest in some of these calls. There's no evidence that these arrests generally reduced domestic violence and in fact, many domestic violence victims. Actually, don't call law enforcement at all because they are afraid of the legal repercussions. There is a better smarter response. What we need to do is to dispatch non law enforcement, first responders to respond to calls, involving disputes and domestic disturbances, social workers, and teams that are experts in working to escalate these disputes are less costly and more effective, actually resolving the conflicts. These crisis response teams would-be, specially trained and credentialed in the neighborhoods that they work in bats key. This already works in other countries all around the world. This is the primary method of intervention in France where trained mediators respond to the vast majority of calls involving interpersonal conflicts. In America though they send an officer or two officers or for or five or ten officers with guns, ready to shoot you or tasers you or spray you an arrest you in jail you. Other countries are already doing this better, which takes me to step number eight. We need to provide support not police for people who are experiencing homelessness. This is so simple and so important. Police spend an absurd amount of time in resources dealing with people experiencing homelessness, who has a result often become victims of unnecessary arrest in violence that only further disrupts their lives by creating specialized trained homelessness outreach units. We can reduce these harmful and pointless police confrontations and replace them with positive interactions that build community trust and help people find true stability.

New York Police Department's budget has been slashed by $1 billion
"And that means a new New York City budget. The City Council voted shortly after midnight to adopt Mayor de Blasio EOS, $88 billion budget. It was a plan that only passed after weeks of protests back and forth between council members and the mayor and a lot of finger pointing. City agencies across the board will shoulder painful cuts due to covert related revenue losses and costs. But the most intense negotiations leading up to the last minute were about cuts to the NYPD. We're joined now by WN reporters Yasmeen Khan and Glen Hogan, who's actually at City Hall where police have moved in, and things are a little bit tense. She joins us on Skype. Morning, Gwyn, what's happening there? Good morning, yet they're you know. Throughout the night, protesters had taken some of the city blocks around the occupied city hall. But then, as the morning came, they went back into the plaza to fortify the boundaries. And now No, I'm about 1/2 a block away where there's you know, I would say a couple. You know dozens. If that, you know, 100 or maybe more police officers who are lined up right here they have shields batons. Andi was sort of a tense standoff that's happening. The activists are urging people to remain calm and not agitate not to throw things. The mood is pretty festive, but you know, it's one of those moments. I could flip on a dime and become violent. Yes, Mein. The budget negotiation is always kind of a dance. But this year, the overall budget was cut significantly because of the public health crisis. Can you give us the broad strokes of this new fiscal plan that takes effect today? Yeah. Hi. This budget process is painful carry, you know. Earlier this year before the public health crisis, the mayor proposed a budget that was more than $95 million we're down to a plan that about 88 billion So there are deep cuts across city agencies. As you mentioned. This is a budget that doesn't draw on city reserves. Onda does fund some important program. You know, the city has a restored funding for summer youth jobs. The budget, address his food and security, and it restores the school counselor program for the highest need kids. But the city actually still needs to find another $1,000,000,000 in labor savings between now and October. Otherwise, there could be layoffs of Abducted 22,000 city employees. Community advocates have called for a least a $1 billion cut to the NYPD and the mayor said he'd get there. Yes, I mean, where does City Hall in the council land on this? It's not quite a 1,000,000,000 or it depends on how you view a cut versus moving money around and you know the people who wanted major cuts. To the NYPD wanted savings that could be reinvested in young people and in communities of color. So this was a debate about providing resources that promote public safety. Just not her policing. So what? What they landed on with that that some personnel under the beady will now go to other city agencies like school safety agents will gradually shipped back to the Department of Education. There is a pretty big cut to the overtime budget for uniformed officers. There've been cuts in the past OT, though, that haven't really been met. There is the city will be eliminating a new class of cadets. Scheduled for July. So that's about 200 officers that won't start this summer. Otherwise, there is no hiring freeze for the NYPD, which is a real sticking point. For some people on the mayor does expect patrol levels to say the same. There will also be a new classic death starting in October, so there will be no officers added later this fall.

A Trish, I I I, I did three things very very well. I got great grades I was a superb athlete. And I was also bowling and I use violence as my first way to medicate my. My mom remarried when I was nine. She married an old World War Two. Vet, a guy who was there on d day, the great thing about this man was that he taught me at a Thai Thai. Shave my face, open doors or women. Really old school ways I think lost in a generation or two, and I'm grateful to them and most mostly unbreathable that he was seventeen years a sobriety.

"school counselor" Discussed on The Adoption Connection | a podcast by and for adoptive moms
"Good Morning Melissa. Welcome to episode. Eighty of the adoption connection podcast. Good Morning Lisa. So how are you guys doing? Well that is such an interesting question and for all of you listening out there. We would love to know how you're doing too because this is like it's wild and crazy right. There's nothing to compare this to. We're definitely Dealing with some of the challenges of having everybody home doing school at home. We've got big changes. Our daughter and rose who serving as a missionary in Mexico. The sending ministry has decided she needs to leave Mexico. So that's very unexpected. Change happening in our family and she'll be leaving and starting long trip home on Monday. And so that means adjusting things in our home setting up a space for her empty at address or you know just really practical things so it's just a strange time. I think we're doing okay. How about you? We're doing okay in most senses. I actually think I'm the one who's not doing okay. I think everyone else actually really is doing fine. And it's interesting because I have this feeling of not giving myself permission to not feel fine because on a logical level. There's really nothing going on that. I mean minus like the whole bathroom renovation situation. If you've been following me at all you know a little bit about so. There's a lot of construction stuff in our space like our space isn't clean right now or isn't de cluttered but my husband still able to work and were accustomed to homeschooling and working at home and we have a lot of people that are close to US already. Live here so you know. We're not just all by our lonesome selves. So I think this whole feeling like feeling overwhelmed feeling frozen. I feel almost like guilty about because I'm seeing my friends like make masks and volunteer give back to society and I'm capable of sewing. I have a ton of fabric. I actually used to sew a lot in an earlier season and I just can't the thought of it just overwhelms me. I can't and I'm feeling a little bad about it but just is what it is. I suppose well and I think for those of us who work from home. Our work has continued. Virtually literally virtually but also just virtually the same but now we're adding on top. Having you know teaching the kids and managing some of these complexities with the pandemics though. Yeah it's a really strange time and I find myself feeling a little sad and I think some of it is legitimate well. Sadness is legitimate but some of it is because of the obvious losses I've talked about. Claire is a senior. And you know that's it's a really sad thing to have your child not be able to have a graduation when they've been expecting it and prom and the scholar dinner and all these special things and really really sad talking to Anna rose yesterday about having to leave her work that she loves so much in the people that she loves so much. But there's also the sadness like I'm starting to see more and more on facebook of people who are losing spouses who are losing friends to the virus. And I just think there's this feeling in my gut sort of of sadness and I'm not I think that's okay and I don't think I need to pretend it's not there but I definitely feel this even in the midst of some of the good things that are happening to. Yeah I listened to a really helpful. Podcast from Rene Brown last week. She has a new podcast in her first episode. Is something like burn a on F F tease which the G. rated version is terrible. I times and I think we have to remember that. This is a first for everything a lot of things and in some ways. It's hard to identify this as a first time because a lot of things in life are kind of still the same. It's kind of living in the twilight zone where a lot of things are the same but then yet a lot of things are different. And so my brain's just having trouble wrapping itself around all the things. Yes well. I'm really happy about the episode. We have today. We actually pulled this together very short notice because we think it's going to be so valuable for all of you who are listening We invited our friend. Maria Hanson. Quine to talk with us about schooling during this very unusual time and Maria is a particularly great guest for us because she's both a school counselor a very experienced school counselor and an adoptive mom so she is person of great faith and she is living out the extraordinary stories. God has planned for her. She calls herself a precious jewels. Mama as she passionately believes children are sacred gifts from God Maria and her husband Sam have nine beautiful and diverse precious jewels. Seventh reduction and to warn biologically to them. Sam Her husband is an adult adoptee also adopted from Korea so he Melissa have that in common and Maria so believes in the value of children that she has devoted the past twenty two years to working with children from hard places and currently working as an inner city school counselor. I am so excited for you guys to hear this. Maria is extraordinary and she's passionate about her work and she's going to have a ton of great insight for us so let's jump into your conversation with Maria Maria. Welcome to the adoption connection podcast. Hi Lisa how are you yeah? You're well I would say one of the biggest things that I am dealing with and I know families all over the country are dealing with right. Now is the sudden closure of schools. Educating our kids at home interacting with schools and the reason. I wanted to discuss this with you. Is that you are a school counselor and also the mom of a large family. So why don't you tell us a little bit about you? And then let's talk about what is going on with education and how we can best help our kids. I am a school counselor. I'm a clinically trained. Social worker right But I've been in school counselor for seventeen years. I have worked in three different states and about four different schools and I just say that just like the kind of the diversity of different settings that have been in right. I really have had. The village of the other. Really cool thing for me is that I had the privilege of having my own children in one of the schools that I worked at for many many years and that was awesome. And so a school counselors Our roles vary from school so each each one of the buildings had been on. That would be how we refer to school. Sometimes buildings in each one of the schools my roles Different right In one school I heavily was involved teaching social emotional skills in the classrooms Annan. Doing counseling a on injured. I've ores as well typical. Typically though a counselor does where many different right though Always been an integral part of the Special Ed team in my last building Did observations is part of that. Went part that was part of the evaluation process. Now what I do is i. I create social much goals. Some of my students so I am actually in their writing. Iep goals. And I do minutes with some of my students right now on the role that I'm in I'm also in charge of our study team right so it just depends riots. Now I feel like I have my dream job which I will. Just say it as that. I won't give an explanation. There's lots of stories behind that. I realized this might not be the dream job for others. But I WORK IN AN INNER-CITY K. Through eight school and I have loved at honestly. Honestly I've let all the buildings have been in before all the other schools have.

"school counselor" Discussed on The Adoption Connection | a podcast by and for adoptive moms
"Good Morning Melissa. Welcome to episode. Eighty of the adoption connection podcast. Good Morning Lisa. So how are you guys doing? Well that is such an interesting question and for all of you listening out there. We would love to know how you're doing too because this is like it's wild and crazy right. There's nothing to compare this to. We're definitely Dealing with some of the challenges of having everybody home doing school at home. We've got big changes. Our daughter and rose who serving as a missionary in Mexico. The sending ministry has decided she needs to leave Mexico. So that's very unexpected. Change happening in our family and she'll be leaving and starting long trip home on Monday. And so that means adjusting things in our home setting up a space for her empty at address or you know just really practical things so it's just a strange time. I think we're doing okay. How about you? We're doing okay in most senses. I actually think I'm the one who's not doing okay. I think everyone else actually really is doing fine. And it's interesting because I have this feeling of not giving myself permission to not feel fine because on a logical level. There's really nothing going on that. I mean minus like the whole bathroom renovation situation. If you've been following me at all you know a little bit about so. There's a lot of construction stuff in our space like our space isn't clean right now or isn't de cluttered but my husband still able to work and were accustomed to homeschooling and working at home and we have a lot of people that are close to US already. Live here so you know. We're not just all by our lonesome selves. So I think this whole feeling like feeling overwhelmed feeling frozen. I feel almost like guilty about because I'm seeing my friends like make masks and volunteer give back to society and I'm capable of sewing. I have a ton of fabric. I actually used to sew a lot in an earlier season and I just can't the thought of it just overwhelms me. I can't and I'm feeling a little bad about it but just is what it is. I suppose well and I think for those of us who work from home. Our work has continued. Virtually literally virtually but also just virtually the same but now we're adding on top. Having you know teaching the kids and managing some of these complexities with the pandemics though. Yeah it's a really strange time and I find myself feeling a little sad and I think some of it is legitimate well. Sadness is legitimate but some of it is because of the obvious losses I've talked about. Claire is a senior. And you know that's it's a really sad thing to have your child not be able to have a graduation when they've been expecting it and prom and the scholar dinner and all these special things and really really sad talking to Anna rose yesterday about having to leave her work that she loves so much in the people that she loves so much. But there's also the sadness like I'm starting to see more and more on facebook of people who are losing spouses who are losing friends to the virus. And I just think there's this feeling in my gut sort of of sadness and I'm not I think that's okay and I don't think I need to pretend it's not there but I definitely feel this even in the midst of some of the good things that are happening to. Yeah I listened to a really helpful. Podcast from Rene Brown last week. She has a new podcast in her first episode. Is something like burn a on F F tease which the G. rated version is terrible. I times and I think we have to remember that. This is a first for everything a lot of things and in some ways. It's hard to identify this as a first time because a lot of things in life are kind of still the same. It's kind of living in the twilight zone where a lot of things are the same but then yet a lot of things are different. And so my brain's just having trouble wrapping itself around all the things. Yes well. I'm really happy about the episode. We have today. We actually pulled this together very short notice because we think it's going to be so valuable for all of you who are listening We invited our friend. Maria Hanson. Quine to talk with us about schooling during this very unusual time and Maria is a particularly great guest for us because she's both a school counselor a very experienced school counselor and an adoptive mom so she is person of great faith and she is living out the extraordinary stories. God has planned for her. She calls herself a precious jewels. Mama as she passionately believes children are sacred gifts from God Maria and her husband Sam have nine beautiful and diverse precious jewels. Seventh reduction and to warn biologically to them. Sam Her husband is an adult adoptee also adopted from Korea so he Melissa have that in common and Maria so believes in the value of children that she has devoted the past twenty two years to working with children from hard places and currently working as an inner city school counselor. I am so excited for you guys to hear this. Maria is extraordinary and she's passionate about her work and she's going to have a ton of great insight for us so let's jump into your conversation with Maria Maria. Welcome to the adoption connection podcast. Hi Lisa how are you yeah? You're well I would say one of the biggest things that I am dealing with and I know families all over the country are dealing with right. Now is the sudden closure of schools. Educating our kids at home interacting with schools and the reason. I wanted to discuss this with you. Is that you are a school counselor and also the mom of a large family. So why don't you tell us a little bit about you? And then let's talk about what is going on with education and how we can best help our kids. I am a school counselor. I'm a clinically trained. Social worker right But I've been in school counselor for seventeen years. I have worked in three different states and about four different schools and I just say that just like the kind of the diversity of different settings that have been in right. I really have had. The village of the other. Really cool thing for me is that I had the privilege of having my own children in one of the schools that I worked at for many many years and that was awesome. And so a school counselors Our roles vary from school so each each one of the buildings had been on. That would be how we refer to school. Sometimes buildings in each one of the schools my roles Different right In one school I heavily was involved teaching social emotional skills in the classrooms Annan. Doing counseling a on injured. I've ores as well typical. Typically though a counselor does where many different right though Always been an integral part of the Special Ed team in my last building Did observations is part of that. Went part that was part of the evaluation process. Now what I do is i. I create social much goals. Some of my students so I am actually in their writing. Iep goals. And I do minutes with some of my students right now on the role that I'm in I'm also in charge of our study team right so it just depends riots. Now I feel like I have my dream job which I will. Just say it as that. I won't give an explanation. There's lots of stories behind that. I realized this might not be the dream job for others. But I WORK IN AN INNER-CITY K. Through eight school and I have loved at honestly. Honestly I've let all the buildings have been in before all the other schools have. I've just always been passionate about F- family felt like this is part of my calling. This is part of my ministry. I view it in that way and as a twenty year old I thought I would be working in the inner city. That was kind of what I wanted to do. In so now as a forty five year old I am working in the inner city and so So you can imagine the amount of trauma then riot that interface with every single day. And so let me ask you.

Minding Mental Illness with Esmé Weijun Wang
"I really wanted to be able to be seen as high functioning and I wanted to be able to be seen as normal and if people found out about my diagnoses. I wanted them to see me as like. Eah The person who had this serious diagnosis but who also graduated from Stanford with a three point nine. Gpa So it scared me that. I had these symptoms that I couldn't control ninety minute. All and welcome to One lady like they show that finds out what happens when women break the rules. I'm Kristen I'm caroline. And that was today's guest as May wage and Wang author of the New York Times bestselling essay collection. The collected Schizophrenia Carolina. I've been wanting to talk to as may for a while now. I stumbled across her a couple of years back when I was going through a scary mental health period of my own. As I mentioned before on unladylike I have generalized anxiety disorder and at that time like on paper. Everything looked good. You know but I was spiraling on the inside and it was honestly so unsettling that I didn't know how to talk about it and I didn't WanNa talk about it or not. I think I was scared. That talking about it would make it feel even more real and it felt like a burden. I didn't WanNa put on anyone else like. I just desperately wanted to figure out how to get myself back together. And that's actually how I ended up on as May's website. It's called the unexpected shape as basically all about getting your creative work done while also living with mental or physical illness and I was just so struck by how openly she talks about having a serious mental illness. Yeah in her. Mid Twenties as May was diagnosed with schizophrenia disorder which she describes as the fucked up offspring of manic depression and schizophrenia is almost like a demon that takes over a person The schizophrenia causes a person to no longer be themselves whereas depression and anxiety think are often considered to be quite awful but they are more considered to be things that are layered on top of a person. You know there's something that somebody is dealing with. they're not something that takes over or empties out a person or places. The spirit of a person in the collected schizophrenia is as may details her journey to what she calls the inappropriately crazy end of the Mental Health Spectrum Aka. A the most unladylike end and she's far from alone there an estimated one hundred thousand five. Americans live with serious mental illness or SMS. The most common ones are schizophrenia. Spectrum disorders severe bipolar disorder and Severe Major Depression. But as may also occupies a very particular space on that unladylike end of the spectrum. She doesn't fit. What we think schizophrenia. Looks like you know. She's not visibly unhinged or unkempt. She's a Yale and Stanford educated award-winning writer. Who's married her? College sweetheart has plenty of friends and frankly dresses. She gives fog. She does and I was really drawn to this idea of someone who is killing it on the outside all the same time. Her mental illness is sort of escalating on the inside. So today we're talking with asthma about navigating serious mental illness. How it shapes her ambition and why wanting to be seen as high functioning is so important to her and quick note. Y'All we're getting into serious mental health issues in this episode including psychosis in suicidal idealization. So heads up. If you're sensitive to those topics only as I grew up in Michigan and was raised by her Taiwanese immigrant parents. She started reading at two and wanted to be a writer by the time. Most kids are learning to tie. Their shoes. Baby was not messing around when she was about six as me. Sent a letter to the publisher. Little Brown asking how she could get her works in print already and they actually wrote me. Back I remember. They wrote me back the types letter typewritten letter and they said I needed an agent. So yeah I I've I've wanted to be a writer for a very long time. That's funny to tell a child that you need an like yeah. I've imagining some kind of like intern or assistant just thinking like you know. How should I respond to this kid? But alongside her big writing dreams. Sba had to deal with extreme evolving and often completely mysterious mental health issues and they also started when she was really young. When I was four or five I remember having issues where I would just filled with anxiety in compulsion. I remember this one evening where I was going to get up and get a drink and then we go to the bathroom and then I would feel like I needed to go to bed and get a drink and then go to the bathroom and I did this over and over again. Compulsively fan ended up standing at the top of the stairs and I just burst into tears and my mom said why are you crying and I just said I can't stop with puberty. Came depression anxiety and insomnia. By the time she was a teenager as me was having suicidal thoughts inserted seeing the high school counselor and at some point. She told me you're going to have to see a psychiatrist. This is getting really serious and so one morning. I told my mom before school. I've been seeing a counselor and she thinks that I need to see a psychiatrist and Mommy yelled at me. She was so upset so angry. She said we've always given you everything you've needed. You have close to where you have food. Who have a roof over your head? How could he do this to us? And I. I remember crying in the car on the way to school and crying I skipped first period and I was just crying in the art room. Eventually as May and her mom went to see the psychiatrist together he was a white man and he asked my mom in front of me. Is there any history of mental illness in the Family? Which is a very ordinary question to ask in this kind of like diagnostic meeting. And my mom said no. There's no history and I learned years later that there was quite a strong history of mental illness. My family and I asked my mom. Why did you tell that first doctor that there was no history of mental illness and she said In Chinese essentially wall? It wasn't his business and I think that kind of cultural stigma was a lingering factor throughout all of my diagnoses. Her diagnoses plural started with clinical depression and anxiety then the summer after as graduated from high school. She was exhibiting enough signs of mania that our psychiatrist diagnosed her with bipolar disorder. And my mom was just like okay. She didn't know what it meant. Really she told me years later that if she had really understood what it meant she wouldn't have let me go to school especially not across the country and not by myself as May was eighteen and a couple of months later she left home in California to start her freshman year at Yale. Now as many psychiatrists recommended that she wait to start taking her new bipolar medication until she got settled. Yale and could start working with someone there. This meant that there was a stretch of months whereas may was dealing with the stress of starting college and experiencing bipolar symptoms. That delay was the first domino to fall. That ultimately resulted in as May being hospitalized at the Yale Psychiatric Institute twice her first year there after the second time Yale sent packing then in her early twenties after she'd restarted her college career at Stanford as me began experiencing intermittent symptoms of psychosis. Psychosis is either hallucinations. So false sensory experiences hearing bang seeing things feeling things physically in the actually hearing things like you hear them as though they're actually there and then delusions are false

"So I kinda they're like my number two behind the giants. Like giants always number. Why Bill, I root for the cubs, and I remember the Marlins knocked out the giants that year and solve porn hard for the cubs because alls I been there like, come on. Kobe, I even had like a cubs hat and stuff, and like always pull for him. And. Oh, god. I told you remember that, but for you who liked her team? I, I can't imagine dude. Oh, it was it was I remember vividly being in driver's Ed a week out, and my driver teacher going on trauma, and I'm like cubs lost house terrible. He's like to happen a week ago. You gotta get over it. Still hurts camps up thinking about it. It was so bad. So okay, I'll give you my quick five b. All right. So this is more like bay area teams. So like, I'm a giants fan Niners fan warriors, and then Fresno state college. So in nonspecific order because it's like, kinda quick. The warriors lose in the three one of the Cavs could have had the best season in NBA history. It'll stay that's things. But that's things man. Yeah. Niners losing the Super Bowl. The ravens. Oh, yeah. The cat. We capture Nick all that had the ball to five. I go with the five couldn't put. Playcalling was. Yeah. Good ole Harbaugh. Giants losing oh to to the angels in the World Series. Oh, they were up to over that meme, no two thousand two thousand two that's right. It was game seven. They lost game six and seven. Right. Right, right. Yep. They're up three two in that series that has since been reading, they, they want three and five years. So that one doesn't really sting as mud, right? But it's just like I remember it so vividly like so it's like it's like a fresh, even though they did when the three like I was more like when I was a kid and like super into it. So that one, you know, hurts pretty bad. Another Niner, one losing to the Seahawks, and the twenty thirteen fourteen champion when Richard Sherman. Yeah. Bad added has screamed on the camera on five threes hot hands. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. So I throw that one up there and then the last one is also Niners one because it was three years old. Like we got our like, heartbroken. They lost to the giants and NFC championship game and Kyle woes muffed the punt. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And then right there, set the field goal for the giants and giants went on to win Super Bowl. And I mean that's a, that's a list, I'm biased. Because I'm Chikako I think my list is worse. But that's a tough list to while your list is worse because like your teams are so much more long suffer. Is it the bulls won six shave gypsies you're alive? I was with child when they want them, which I mean, like yeah. Child that can remember things at that time. Yeah, that those sucked the bears has been a long time. Oh man. Oy. Big Illinois guy. Obviously, I went to smolder but even before school. There has a big Illinois fan so that one was rough and then up into the time the cubs that was really rough. But even then now it's been redeemed with them winning the World Series walls alive..

"That was had team was amazing. It It was was. was two thousand eight loss all year, right? One loss all year. They lost the last game on a buzzer beater in the last in the railway regular season game. I want to say it gets stale state. Yep. Okay. Again, one of those things where it's Eleanor with like. Good talent. But the North Carolina had like all these, like five star recruits and all that, and it was and Sean may was treated like he was fucking shack and that game, it was one of those where you felt like it was destiny that didn't happen, like we lost close. I remember I remember that game. And then number one, I mean, this has been redeemed now that because of one world through, but two thousand three was the most heartbreaking thing I've ever been a part of, oh, Bartman, a three one lead in the Marlins losing the last two games at home. I just I just remember I think I was depressed for like two weeks. I remember my, my, my, my dad having to talk to me and be like you can't you don't you can't control these games. Anthony like nothing you could've done. Oh, I'm the same way brother. Oh, yeah. So those are the laser by top five of all time. I love that list does. So I the only ones I guess we're the Super Bowl apartment. Yeah. I was like, well Barbas having number one. Number one, I made that, that that and that was like. It was just such a fun. Cubs team in like we had prior. And would like I was just. Oh, I think the Marlins you'll lose. Yeah, really. And in hindsight, the Marlins were actually the better team like they they had more wins through the regular season. The only reason we, we had home field is because they were at the wildcard team and they were actually the better team and had a ton of talent on that team. Yeah. We did blow up three games to one. Well, it's funny is making these connections Chicago like the cubs were always my number two team growing up because my dad and I watched cubs games on WGN all the time, because we get w is a national broadcast channels. So we'd cubs games all the time growing up and I was like, really right? Sambergen Mark grace and all those guys..

"That's I've ever you last summer. You mean jazz kind of talked about that? That was what we talked about on that jock talk was the summer free agency and it's crazy. You know, pay attention. While the free agents go. It's going to be an in the draft obviously before that. It's a lot of drama minute is it is what was your question for me. Okay. So we're still sports, but going away from the finals. So as cog Kogyo sports fan, I'm put you on the spot here spot here. What are your I don't I don't know if know you? if you have I'll say five you compare it down to three. If you want top three or five like gut wrenching moments, like in sports like. Sports fan. Yeah. Where you're like, oh man. That one ripped my heart. I think that you, you talk about you crying back in the, the cover about because I've got some for my teams. But I'm just curious, if there's one like you remember being a kid or. Okay, what's your? Because I was going to make try to make some guests you. You want. How many do you want? Okay. And you can okay really get into this. I'll just going to go five if you've got ten gopher, but oh. It'll be take too long. Okay. Go five. All right ago in I'll, I'll end with the worst these other ones. I don't know what order I'd be in. The list of my head has match you, if I can guess what you were going to say, I was pretty. So this one's pretty recent. Actually, there's two from here. Okay. Derrick rose terriers ACL. I was at that game. Oh, wow. Okay. Okay. Game. One of the craziest most surreal experiences, I've ever been a part of. Okay. So real quick on that. I just heard today, somebody say that this Durant moment, the only time they heard something worse than this was dare rose during his ACL. Yeah, it was terrible. It was. Somebody on ESPN said that was like, wow. I didn't realize how impactful that rose. Injury was. But to hear you say now is like, well that was. Yeah, that's sucked. That's a lot. Bulls moment. Them losing to the heat, the prior year. Now, I know that like seems from afar like all they showed a loss of heat. But I was so invested in that team in hated the fucking heat so much that was the first year that heat got together the houses that was LeBron's for here. Right. And to realize, in that Western Conference are that Eastern Conference finals about four games. And when he went up three, one and the heat or just better and Derrick rose isn't ready yet, and that they just don't have enough talent, that was one of the more heartbreaking things ever because you were just like us as good versus evil this, like the right way to do it, like the bulls were the right way. They traff did Derrick rose. He's hometown kid this team works hard and you got the heat who are just the heels, you know, building up their team through free agency and just star power. I was like this is the wrong way to do it, and they fucking loss. So that sucked. The bears losing the Super Bowl against the colts for me was really route one of my guesses. I was gonna say the Grossman team that was really rough again just being super invested in the team at team was fun to watch the entire think about it. That was the first time in your life that they made the same exact that's the first time because you may you don't know any fibers let you weren't a lot. I think out of all will bear my top three are bears bulls cubs. But yeah, you know the bears for me. We have season. Tickets in the family of the bears have a really special place in my heart. That's cool. Mom shares. So then my these are my last two Illinois losing to North Carolina in the two thousand five national championship game. Oh, good wives devastated.

That's the guy that I didn't watch this guy play when he came back. But everyone says Dominique came back and was somewhat himself. But even not the same guy. Dominique wilkins. So it's the worst basketball injury, have Kevin Durant was going to be a free agent. The sheer a lot of people thought he was a shoe in to go somewhere. A lot of people thought the Knicks. Now he's torn his achilles. Probably going to be thirty years old. He's gonna be out for at least a year, and the next year probably will take he won't be himself until maybe mid way through that if ever. So what happens with Kevin Durant?

"Of fourteen minutes. He played twelve I. Yeah. And so he goes to the bench and they have the ice pack on. And I think I was just watching him. And I'm like, okay is he just kind of camp out behind the arc and that's going to be as role tonight, which is great. I mean let's just be a sniper because let's be honest, there's nobody else on the team who can make a three right now except clay and Steph. So if that's his role great, you know, like yeah. Like we know he drives his ram Eli, so's mid-range jumpers like that's his game but he's gonna have to adjust with the injury, great and then he goes through that cross. Oh, know and actually the play, okay? There's a play before that, remember he like fell over. Well, sir, dove server Baca drove on, like undercut him. Oh, that's when I'll say, oh no, I'm holding my breath. He popped out. He was fine. And after that, I'm like, oh, he's good like okay we're good. And then the crossover thing happened. And then I seem collapse like, oh, no. Right. It wasn't even you know, there's no contact and the same thing I've crushed. And just it's unbelievable. I mean I don't know who's the plame but. It's tough not to look at the warriors, medical Steph and go, why was he out there? Right. I mean I don't know. I don't know from your what you're hearing in the bay area. But yeah I mean I know he needed like they needed him. They definitely needed him. And he was he looked great for twelve fourteen minutes. But I from my non medical perspective, it's tough to say he was ready to play if after four twelve minutes play he rips his achilles in the same light that he toured or he was nursing a calf strain. And that doesn't seem right. Noah doesn't and might take away is we all know Durant wanted to play one. Yeah. And he's, you know, but and there was a lot of stuff coming out that he like some people are questioning that if he wanted to play any if he was just save himself. So he seemed like he had something to prove, not only to his teammates room to himself, well, this circles back to what we talked about earlier about social media and the pressure. And people get roasted. Emmy, we know his travails with social media over the year as it is over, you know, comical, the burner accounts and all that. But we know this guy is sensitive. We know that what people say bothers him. So he's gonna tell I'm fine. I I'm gonna play mean he's not playing unless you know, he's he wants to it. So. But like it's, it's on the medical staff like you have to save the guy from himself, right? And it's there is wants me to do that now like you said, we're not behind the closed door meetings, and we're not in that conversation. So he might have. I don't give a fuck what you think on play it, you know. And so we don't know what went down behind closed doors and who knows maybe they checked everything. And they thought he was maybe it was just a freak. Maybe it was a freak thing. Who knows? I it's hard for me to believe that, you know, there's no way. I mean that's it's too circumstance. I mean it's the same. Yeah. Same exact circumstances lesson.

Like, like, what specifically I think it was just vicariously living through you? Of like because I've always been very fascinated by Coachella. I've had friends who've gone. It's in California. So I've known a lot of people you've done it. Right. I have not. No, I'm married stiff. I don't know how you would do it. Yeah.

I just watched those about those. And I've always been fascinated by like Woodstock and things like that. So just to hear like the first person account, someone who went and in the stuff with you, the ex girlfriend as just money. Oh, yeah. I was great. And just the I mean the thing too about festivals is I haven't I wasn't I wasn't a festival guy up until I festival wasn't till two thousand thirteen.

If I'm not, you know, twenty one and I was like Bassac six like these kids are drunk in, like acting like idiots and I'm standing here, and I'm with my girlfriend, and I couldn't even get in the music. And there's a lot of people stri. So what were some of the acts like who was playing, and it was like, Danny Cain, and the headliner was t pain. And it was t pain and, you know, the auto tunes, and I guess he can really sing live. But nearing him sing without the auditing, and I was just going, this doesn't sound like the song on the radio. So I was my, my thought was none of these people sound like they sound on the radio. And if something is not supposed to sound like this. The so I, I don't want to do these things I don't want to go, and then I got convinced to go to. It's called. It was ADC electric daisy carnival, but it was the Chicago version, and twenty thirteen. Okay. And I was like, I don't like EDM electric dance music, around, whatever. So I don't like this, my friends rely a couple of my won. A couple of my friends. Not all my friends are going to festivals only a few, and they were they told me, yeah. You do. You know you listen to the radio, you hear EDM you. You know, you like it, you just don't songs like okay whatever I'm like, but I'm not spending money on this, and the they the hook was the go. You should do it one time the girls are hot I go, okay. I'm sold. All you need to hear. And then ever since I've been going because I've actually found myself to enjoy EDM and enjoy the festival culture and just an ally travel to them.

And all these people just ripping em and, and granted the bay area's super super liberal, and you know, and that's how they roll. But they're just pounding this guy for something he had favorite.

Tweet it out or had some controversial tweets such as calling capper, Nick clown, expressed support for Donald Trump. Which you cannot do. Kado never on social media. Can you support Donald Trump? Right. And then liked post with some racist and homophobic, hashtags. Okay. But I mean. Even if a guy support like I personally, and I'm not a big Trump guy, but. He can support Trump like what I like it. I mean, if he's reasons for supporting Trump are a mother fucking racist, and I hate the Mexicans will, then that's probably a little flawed. But if you support, you know, Trump for other things than you know, whatever it gets conversation. No. Like I, I live in a very conservative community. So everyone around me is a Trump supporter. And that's our. I mean it's not like fuck you support troop like yellow because some people are like that. Like if you support Trump, I don't even know you anymore.

It's like you Trump supporter or not you stand on this issue. It's so binary. Yeah. Yeah. No totally man. I rhyme at it's like if you support Trump like what is wrong with you?

So it's just like probably couple hours, north of Los Angeles. So that's like that kind of end of the valley and the top of the valleys, reading so all that area just like Uber conservative.

I think I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I was around a mixed group. Mine tire life. Like I had black friends, I had spent Hispanic friends, I had Philippino friends at white friends. So it was just normal. The just be diverse. You know, I think the culture I'm sorry, I think not culture, but nature, the people around me had a lot to do with it. Okay. So what does he gonna ask you? Did you grow up like in Chicago? Or like what part did you grow? Okay. So I grew up. I was when I was I. Because I I don't know really much about like that area. So you have to educate me a little bit. I want to hear this, too. So, of course, they want to hear me talk about me because it's my show. People who listen to the show, but civil aren't from the area. So I wanna be Kate a little bit more and I'm happy to talk about it. No, I grew up in Chicago. So in was cog. And then there's obviously the suburbs, and the greater Haugeland area share sh-. Chicago itself is in Cook County and Cook County, encompasses Chicago and a lot of its burbs, and then there's other counties around Chicago that are greater Chicago land area and greater chicagoland's area can extend all the way to north west Indiana. And you in, like a little bit of southern Wisconsin and out as Rockford Illinois in Naperville, which is pretty west. But I grew up in Chicago, I grew up in Lincoln park, which is were Depal. Have you heard the Paul, of course? Yeah. David depaul blue demons. Yeah, that's where all is. So it's a it's kind of like a yuppie college kind of kind of neighborhood. Yeah. Have fallen you along Google maps, your buddy? Yeah. So it it, I mean it's, it's nicer, but it's not like super rich. It's you know, it's upper middle class probably. So I grew up there, which is tech north side of Chicago up until I was about twelve or thirteen and then I moved out to tonight, which is a north west suburb of Chicago not too far out in Chicago. So it's still in Cook County. That's probably, you know, twenty minutes twenty five minutes without traffic from downtown. So it's not too far and I was there and I live there, my from probably like six or seven th grade onto high school or high school. And then, from there went down the university of Illinois.

So a family was half an F, but my identity I kind of was more embracing the Filipino side. It was okay. You know, I, I guess the end of the being mixed, I kind of just embraced the other side, just, I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that growing up. I even the, the, the grammar glow into was a Catholic school. But it was very diverse. From the high school, I went to his one of the most diverse in the country. So I was around diversity, so it wasn't on cool to be diverse. You know it wasn't you know it was it was normal. So I feel like you were different than anybody. You just felt like you were part of the rue. Right, right. Yeah. And I felt like I don't know why. But I just felt first off. I think I just looked a little more Filipino than white. But, but, you know, but then, again, I get from wipe, I get from Filipino, all the time that I looked white, so but I, I would say seventy percent of the people don't think I'm white or they think I'm mixed with something else. So that's why I was like, oh, you know, I'm not peer, white Filipino like the I'm I just what I more wit. So I was in the in high school. I wasn't so much. I did the Filipino club for like a day. And then I just was like. I was a freshman and I didn't know I went to a high school that I didn't know anybody. Okay. So I was just really shy kids, so I went to Filipino club for day. So all these Philipino already knew each other. I'm like, I'm out. And I just I just made friends with everyone else.

So I joined I made it a point to join that I made it a point to start dating, like Filipino girls. Okay. Okay. So then from then on it was just like yeah. I'm like Filipino now that I'm like. Out of college and stuff. It's I don't really I mean identify being both. I'm just I'm just me. I don't really Leah one way or the other. I mean, I still have a lot of Filipino tendencies by also still have like a lot of white tendencies to so. Okay, I definitely went through a phase where I was like I'm Filipino in the Filipino club. I'm gonna marry a Filipino. I'm gonna I'm gonna embrace all of this, and they're lucky to have me because we're gonna get a little bit of white in them, too. Dude. It's so funny, another apprear suggestion. I watched that crazy rotations movie. Oh, yeah. Yeah. It's great film, man. That's yeah. It came on HBO. So I watched that a couple of weeks ago.

Go double that it was like, oh, yeah. He was just like that movie, you know, is. It is moving. Yeah. If you weren't born in that country, it's like it's your looked at, you know, kind of as an outsider, I think, sure if I would have grown up, let's say, I would have grown up in the north the north shore burbs of Chicago, which is very white.

Like I never went to my counselor with any sort of issues, other than educational, you know, like what clash should I have necks, it's my path to going to this college? What do I have to do? Well, but what's account serving like in, in high school? Yeah. One of the main things man because, like, honestly do like, what you just said, is what the mass vast majority of my friends would tell me as I remember my school counselor, or I never went to the counselor. So my, my biggest goal is that the kids know who I am. When they leave school because I don't wanna be that what you just said. Right. I I'll say this. It wasn't. I don't know. It was if it was my counselors fault or me, just not given shit. Well, that's I mean as a high schooler that's an I mean you you're a kid, you know what? I don't know. I don't know that.

So I'm assuming you are high school student. I was pretty good. I was also. I don't wanna talk too much about myself, but I was one of those high school kids that it just came easy for in terms of school. So I was lucky in that sense. Yeah.

Like how you were also working with the low end students who really struggle working with the kids with learning disabilities who are in special education. So they're on what we call an IEP, and I don't wanna get too much in the educational jargon on a nerd podcast jock into all cast. This is John Kerry, but this is the, the spin off show so we can get.

Yeah. You're right. That was good. You know it's the disagreements, what makes the show because you guys you can't just agree on everything. You know, and even when it's like a great movie like endgame, you know, you guys are slurp, ended up fucking great man. It was like no issues and, you know, and then you guys nitpick it a little bit. I mean, obviously, you know, it's such a huge event. And we all of course a loved it. But, you know, every movie can be can be critiqued, so exactly the variety you guys provide man. That's, that's a really good part of the show that you awesome. I've, we try man. We try not to the, the, the worst thing about, you know, I've listened to other podcasts on the worst thing is when everyone just has the same opinion, right? Yeah. And no one has their own unique thoughts. You know, they're just regurgitating whatever what each other said, I, I like that it at least resonates. That we're not doing that. Yeah.
