Why We Should Stop Blaming Social Media for Depression
"Erica, I took a position and if you don't agree with me, I always tell guests, it's a non issue. But you may have, I'm sure you followed, given this is your field. That this huge report on The Wall Street Journal that Facebook which owns Instagram, it's come out that vast numbers of girls, teenage girls are depressed and 6% are even suicidal in thinking because of the bad body image that they get looking at other girls on Instagram. My reaction was such is life everybody on earth confronts people who are smarter than them better looking than them brighter than them more successful than them better spouse than they think they have better kids than they think they have better income than they think they have. That the answer is not to shut it down, but to teach your daughter resilience. That's my position. What do you think? Well, you're right and saying that Facebook isn't the cause of mental disorders, but it's an amplifier. So social media is a kind of amplifier of the underlying fragility of many adolescents. So if you take an adolescent who has a very strong emotionally secure background and you introduce them to modest amounts of social media, they may not have that kind of extreme reaction as a more fragile adolescent who hasn't had that healthy emotionally healthy secure background. And I write about that in my first book that you have always been a great supporter of mine and I'm so grateful. But my first book is about how you create the emotional foundation in children. So heading into adolescence, there are more secure, so they can be more resilient and withstand the pressures of things like social media.

Episode 53 Part 1 Our Relationship with Planned Parenthood Ft Amanda Weber - burst 02
"Like two. You kind of have the two extreme perspectives. And so for you to be able to come together and be able to say like, okay, so this is what this is what I found through my journey and experience with this object matter. I think that's really really wonderful. Yeah, the interesting thing is, is I could absolutely argue both points. You know, I know the talking points of both sides so well. I was actually I would go speak at the capitol in Sacramento California on behalf of Planned Parenthood and speak to the news outlets and speak to the representatives and stuff there. And then later, I ended up being a kind of social media coordinator for Abby. So I was responding to people on her social media platforms and stuff. And helping her with her outreach, not because I was pro life or not because I was opposed to abortion. But I could very much respond as she would, because I knew exactly what the talking points and the important points were. And. Her stances and her things have very much changed over time. But at the time when I volunteered at Planned Parenthood, I am not gonna lie. I hated the pro life movement. I mean, vehemently hated the pro life movement, partially because Planned Parenthood kind of set that in my mind that these were the bad guys. These were the people trying to take our rights away, and they were trying to ruin my life and all this. So I had this very strong narrative in my mind of what these people were, but also because I had a personal experience. And this is something I haven't talked about publicly, but I had this personal experience where I found myself in an unplanned pregnancy shortly after my mom passed away. And I panicked and I didn't know what to do and I didn't want to have an abortion and I reached out to the pro life movement to the people that had been protesting at my clinic for all this time and saying, we love you and we care about you and will help you no matter what. And I reached out, and I said, look, this is a situation I'm in. And here I am, you know, playing Paradise court putting her tail between her legs, saying I need your help. And it seemed on the surface. It's okay, we're going to take you to the crisis pregnancy centers and we're going to help you, but it was really, we're going to give you diapers and formula and you can figure out the hell out on your own. And that was very disheartening because here I am a person that just lost her mom. I'm on my own. I have no money. I have nothing to speak up. I'm literally scraping by month month and they're going, well, we'll give you some diapers and formula. And I just had the worst taste in my mouth about the entire movement because I thought that that's what they were, you know, or these people that were love you and we're going to take you under our wing. Oh, no, you're too much trouble. You're too needy. You have too many needs. And Abby was the first person that I came across that wasn't like that that she very much when I end up getting pregnant with my son said, what
A highlight from Episode 53 Part 1 Our Relationship with Planned Parenthood Ft Amanda Weber
"We are creating as a society, it's become very much an us versus them mentality. And when you're stuck in that, when you're stuck in these are my beliefs and no one and nothing could ever swing me from those beliefs, you missed a really amazing opportunity to learn and to grow. And for me, learning different things and learning different perspectives helped me step away from the narrative that I was being given by whatever people, you know, by the representatives, like my state representatives or Planned Parenthood themselves or fellow volunteers, I could step away and say, but that's not what I believe that's not what I agree with. Let me formulate my own feelings and opinions instead of just parroting what I'm told. And that nowadays, I think, is more useful than ever and more needed than ever because we're so afraid that if we listen to another person or give even thought to another person's experience or opinion, then we're in some way, betraying our own, and that's just simply not true. Yes, I completely agree. The other thing that I find sometimes hard to do, especially when talking about difficult subjects like this is I will open myself up to because I am pretty adamantly pro choice. As far as like my abortion stance is concerned, I have mixed feelings about Planned Parenthood, just in general. And I think that's probably true for a lot of people, just like the organization itself. As a stand-alone like organization, but I have found myself where I where I'm somebody who I want to understand both sides. I want to understand what are all the points.

"One of your interviewee is mentions that everyone's going through something. And I think people need to understand if you're meeting people on the street. We're talking with some of they've gone through stuff. Like I've gone through things. I'm sure lose Tristan you mentioned you've got through your own grief as well. And with American society, I think American society in general, I think there is there needs to be more conversation about going to therapy, talking about things that are not very comfortable and what are things that society should be saying. What should we be talking about and should be made more aware? Society. Yeah. You know, you know, we live in a culture where everything is so fast paced and we're so, you know, what are you feeling? You know what I mean? You got to get money. You know what I mean? Next thing, you know what I mean? It's so it's so bad because when we see some of our favorites, you know what I mean fall down and we say, wow, they were so kids saying signs of this early on, but we chose not to see that. You know what I mean? I see that person. And I always say, like you said earlier, we meet people. Everyone's gonna be dealing with something. And I think that in this world, everybody, you need to be kind. Point blank period. You have to leave the kindness and all that. So you know, I know it's a hard thing to do to do in the world, but you need to kind of, you know, you'll be on the right path and all that. And as far as the world of itself, then what conversations that we have the better. What I'm wearing this in front of the audience. Everybody stood up at the end. It just started hunting on one another. Why? Because it's that common thing that we go through as people. You know what I mean? You still be able to really talk about okay, yes, I want to do that challenge a theme. I'm like, how did I overcome that by doing XYZ? You know what I mean? And I didn't think I was like, you know, as a self that's crazy or, you know, like, you know, you're crazy if you ask for help. Everybody needs to help. Yeah, and it's definitely a very important, especially disorder. We're all going through something. So now, but as far as the artist's part, right? You are, we're dealing with our own issues. And then we put on top of that, our creativity. How do you do that? Specifically, this documentary, you said, okay, so I was asking other questions and then he led to something else. That has creativity sparking, right? And you're saying, okay, maybe I have something bigger than I thought. How do you deal with that in the sense because it is at the very difficult theme to talk about with people and you're not sure if they're going to be open to share. So how do you deal with that in your creative approach? Well, it's so interesting that you say that because while I was interviewing them, you know, my grief was still fresh in my own. Correct. So while I was interviewing them, I'm like, geez, I'm still unpacking myself and here I am receiving things from other people. And I'm like, I have to take a couple I have to take about a week or so apart from each interview because I'm like, you know, all I talk about some heavy stuff and then now I gotta edit it while I'm editing my short film and it was like, it was filled with stuff made emotional roller coaster for me, but it was that theme to what I knew single handedly that it was in divine order that I was doing the right thing with this project. You know what I mean? And I think for me, the biggest thing was just like sitting back and knowing that Michael okay. This is bigger than me. You know what I mean? My project is bigger than me. It's documentary is bigger than me. And to be able to teach with it in people to see it and feel something, that's what it is. That's what it's about. Right. And it's not something that you're doing. Do you have to sort of detach yourself from your own feelings or maybe you got more into that in order to be able to finish this documentary? I'm curious, I'm a curious person. So I definitely leaned into myself a little bit more about why does the person feel that way or can we go back, you know, the technology and see what happened to our specific time and all that. Yeah, it's just intuitive and me to just like, you know, lead with my body and the heart. Definitely. And I think that's what we have, right? I left at the end. So creativity is our voices just making stuff that it's important to us and that we want to share. So as far as that, we got to bring back something a little lighter. So you said you were doing your film and the documentary at the same time. A lot of filmmakers out there are season filmmakers but there are others that are starting out like I mentioned. So in that sense, tell us more about the process with that. You're doing two projects at the same time, but one of them came out before. And now you have something that you're working. What is the process as far as the production part of it? About at least what you encounter. Yeah, you know, so I'm very grateful for my short film team because when I sat down with each and every one of them, you know, they, you know, what my vision was, single handedly, you know what I mean? So grateful for that. Now, when I was in the editing room by myself for my documentary, it was just me, I didn't have anyone to turn to our go to look too. So it was kind of like it was kind of like a home therapy session in itself. And, you know, you walk through this project and I know that I've mentioned that, you know, we did with the 5 stages of three, you know, bargaining and like acceptance and the value that depression and all those other ones. And the people were talking, but I didn't set up the questions. Like, okay, let's talk about arguing, you know what I mean? Those things just like naturally just like the conversation. And as I was piecing together, this documentary, I was like, huh. Here we are. Talking about the acceptance of something, or the denial of something. And so, you know, my process was very, you know, blindness on and, you know, just getting very articulate about what it is that we want to share when we talk about green. And as far as your festival run so that you completed those two films, as far as being on the festival and screening your stuff, what was your process? The what you do in anything prior to the pandemic as far as that screening your film places and now how has that differ from what you're doing now with the documentary because it might be a little different, right? Yeah, no, it's definitely different nowadays. So the film now the documentary is precious news. So it's definitely been a submitted to customers right now. So it hasn't had its own chance to shine this yet. But the part is the short film pain that's done like an extraordinary job being out since 2019 and being part of your festival in Chicago filmmakers and stony island arts bank and, you know, I get to teach with it and my students get to see it and watch it and we talk about process making and, you know, real health business it's like each, you know, the mediums that I teach on is just I'm thankful for it. You were talking to us about your also a T-shirt. And you also, you work with these you say middle school or elementary school kids? So I work with court theater and we teach our students on the south side of Chicago and also work with tape, which is, you know, Chicago partners, education team, and we work on a west side of Chicago. Well, with middle school students. And I know this right now we're talking about how it is to juggle work and life. And then still try to do creative stuff. I think this would say something about filmmakers that they really get. It gets to them that they have to work more than doing creative stuff. And unfortunately, how do you juggle that? Because I know, you know, like you said, we have to make a living, you know? Yeah. But we also need to be creative in order to help our minds in order to help that creativity. So in your experience, how have you dealt with that within the years? Well, you know, tied before this whole pandemic thing happened. You know, it needs to be a key holder at a store called the tag bar, you know, have to wear like, you know, suits and jackets, people love and all that. And when, you know, this thing happening, you know, I couldn't be in front of people anymore. I had to hop into my teaching bag. Really, and it really just brought out the best in me because my life is, you know, built around passionate purpose, you know what I mean? And when those two things are ignited in me, it's like, okay, I can get paid for actually teaching what I know. You know what I mean? And also teaching to children that, you know, who are curious about, you know, about filmmaking and health stories get told and all that. So to have all the insight and knowledge, you know, lose, listen, I'm not gonna go too crazy. You know, all these gifts. Right, but you have to put it out there, especially for the younger generation, right? Yeah, you definitely got to put it out there because, you know, what we do as artists is. Generosity, you know what I mean? It's a public service, what we do. Sometimes we don't see the millions of jewels and sometimes we do. You know what I mean? But you get the stories out there and sell it. And the most audacity right, right? I mean, I think it is great because just to be able to get back, like you said, we have to be nice, you know? That is really what we should all follow all the time kindness. Regardless of anything, that's the first thing that comes in. And to be able to give that back like you said you're working short films, you're working on documentaries

I think a lot of people who they look like. Oh that's really wonderful christian person and they must have everything going on fine but if they're dealing with what what other people think too much You don't really notice it if they're dealing with consumer impulses people go on. That's just that's normal. We all shop. Or why did you list that here. And how do you. What do you mean by that. Because i do think. That's like one of those things where we can be released secretly and unconsciously. It's not like we're overtly sinning but in our hearts were giving something over that belongs to god in the end. These are all coping mechanisms. I believe that mask pain and so we're just looking for something that will give us that quick fix where we're a little less sad or a little less depressed or a little less anxious and so i come at this topic with a lot of compassion because so many people are in these categories. I mean we all have had life kinda thrown at us that looks different than because as a result of fall. That's just that's just the truth. And so the acceptance of that still comes back to going. Am i trying to numb out. Am i trying to escape through whatever that coping mechanism looks like you could call it. Consumer impulses are just like shopping online. It could be a netflix binge. It could be just too much wine. It could be anything and it's more going. What are we. What are we reaching to to numb out or to escape versus coming to god and going god. Here is the the lament of my heart. Here's the longing or the loss that i feel. I think sometimes we. We don't give god that brutal honesty because we fear that it's not a righteous or holy way to engage

"I remain a fan of joel. Kim boosters comedy. I have become a fan of joel. Kim booster the human being as a result of this conversation. He says he's not creative. But i think he created something amazing just now. Depression as we know is a hard thing to describe. It's difficult to articulate. Just what it is to be a deep depressive episode. I've never heard or read. Or i think written anything that really covers the expansive exhausting swamp of depression. I think the best anyone can do is talk about what life is under the weight of this illness. And i think joel did that beautifully and now when someone asks me what depression is like i can say. Well i can't quite describe it to you in words. But i did this one interview. You might find helpful. I'll send them a link to this episode. There's another thing on my mind. That i wanted to just take a minute to recognize at some point in the interview. I stepped away from the idea of gathering information. I wouldn't more into the territory of trying to help joel of expressing concern. I wasn't really following the rules of interviewing in the classical sense. I was breaking them and i felt kind of weird about it afterwards. Because it's like. I wasn't doing my job and if you thought that too believe me i get it. I try to be as much in the moment as possible during the interviews. I try to have very few plans or expectations. As to where the conversation will go. I try to just be there. And i think that's why i dropped. The idea of an objective disengaged interviewer and in this one especially i just became a human listening to another human who's suffering and the urge to help overwhelmed me and i tried to help even though i know you can't reason someone out of depression. You can't point to reasons to feel better because depression is not based on reason. It's not a response to a single thing. It doesn't respond to logic. It's an all encompassing mood disorder. I know that about depression. I've been doing this for years. I literally wrote the book on depression while i wrote a book on depression. Look i'm not trying to make this all about me. I'm really not and i'm not trying to beat myself up either. I'm just saying all this. Because i believe there is hope in the compulsion to try to help someone that urge that basic route benevolence and. I think you would have done the same. In my position that is more than politeness. It's an instinct. Want to lift each other up when we fallen and if that instinct to help is there i have faith. Faith being belief without proof. I have faith that there's an instinct also to seek help and receive help and take it in my friend. Ana marie cox says that. Hope isn't always something you can wait to have delivered to you. Sometimes you gotta go out and find it. And sometimes it's hard to find and you gotta go look for it anyway next time under pressure mode. We all have brains.

A work trip was a professional or was it just all vacation just vacation okay. Okay is that you know we're talking zoom right now. I'm seeing her apartment Is the apartment a place that you associate with the depression since covered. I imagine you've been there since covered. I hate this place then moved in four months before the pandemic and i've grown to hate it deeply. I used to love it. But i hate it now because of associations that you make with it yeah. It represents the darkest period of my entire life and my bet is up against the wall. It's impossible to make and there's no other way to orient the room. it's too small. Are you gonna move. Yeah but i want to buy a house. So i'm waiting until i am financially able to do that which hopefully will have by the end of the year but we'll see has want to ask you again about the The refuge of of doing this kind of stuff Because we talked a little bit about the the standup portion.

Yeah it's so easy. It's so easy. Because i don't have to be created. I just have to say the words and acting comes very easy to me And it feels like such a relief to go on set and just say the lines be funny in that way. That's that's the one way i can still be. Funny is is through acting and you know it just feels like a relief. It feels like i'm hiding Hiding from from the reality of my situation which is that. I lost it whenever i had. I lost it. You lost the ability to generate laughs right material. Okay i mean. There's there's a fair number of people in los angeles who would be very content with that who see themselves as actors who don't gain to write scripts and don't need to do other things and and and who see acting as creative act like if they're if they're doing a performance it's getting laughs they're generating laughs in that way. You don't see that as possible for yourself. No i do. I n i don't mean shit on acting is creative. Act for sure but the thing that made me really special. He's gone the thing that has always made me really special is gone from my life and that was writing for as long as i can remember. I was writing and i wrote and it was the thing you know. I'm a good actor but it was a great writer and it really is devastating to know that that has gone from your life. Like i've been lobotomize and part of my brain is missing. Do you think this is environmental like circumstantial to to the pandemic to your your father's death or do you think there is a chemical change that has happened in you little column a little column. Be probably yeah. Who's to say well. The medical community if if it could be determined where this is coming from if it's if it can be a tweak in medication or tweak in the approach to therapy hundred different types of therapy Do you have the will to search for the to to know rans run some flags up the flagpole or you know kind of play around with it and see if you can find a combination. Yeah yeah i mean. I'm trying different things right now as we speak. I'm reading all the self help books.

"Gave mara brought up the idea of having. Joel kim booster on the show. And i thought that sounded great. I'd seen joel on this. Nbc sitcom called sunnyside and he was amazing one of those performances that you watch and you think this goes beyond funny. This is a complete creative event. Something new and amazing is being born. Here i knew joel done a lot of standup and was well regarded. I watched a few clips of that hilarious. Smart innovative. And i knew he wrote as well for billy on the street and the show the other two brilliant brilliant shows he's also the co host of the very funny urgent care podcast with very funny person metro hari. My only concern was whether joel had any connection to mental illness. And he kind of struggle coming through google and twitter. There were some hints. He mentioned bipolar disorder. But he mentions having that well under control. I figured if there wasn't much there he's obviously a sharp guy. We could talk about the industry or mental health in entertainment or something like that. I didn't know if there'd be a lot going on with joel. Kim boosters mental health until the interview started and i asked him how he's been doing lately What a coincidence that. We're recording today. Because i am in the midst of pretty bad depressive episode right now come barely barely getting through today. I mean i'm actually been fairly productive. But i've been it's been moving through a fog doing it and it's been like pulling teeth so i'm really happy to come here and talk about it But yeah other than that.

And on the weekends like when i'm surrounded by my friends and i'm able to you know Us some substances deprive myself up. I feel great. I feel fine. I was just in puerto vallarta for a week and it was the best week i've had in a year and a half and i felt free. I felt most the most like myself. I think i have felt in a year and a half. I fell in love. I came back and it all came crashing down. And it's you know it's a chemical come down but it's also a sort of spiritual come down after you know a vacation that is that intense and wonderful and It's been up and down since then was it a feeling was at a trip. That kind of kicked off the were climbing out of this phase of the. I the first thing that i really done like that. It was the first time. I've danced in a group of people. It was the first time. I you know taking my shirt off and been free and a club which is something that i was. You know you could find me doing pre pandemic for a long time but Yea it's been. It's been a rough couple of weeks. Yeah what does the day look like when you're in a cycle like this. How does it start. What happens over the course of a day. Well you know. It's amazing. Because i have this incredible autopilot and so i have a list of things i need to get done. And as long as they're not creative. I'm okay you know i get up. I go to the gym. I come back. I sit in the shower for upwards of minutes and then i stand in the shower and do the things in the shower. You're supposed to do get out. I find myself. I clean my apartment. I take care of admin work. I try and tackle one or two projects that i'm supposed to be doing around the house like today. I'm clearing out my closet to give away close. And that's if i if i can accomplish that then i have really done something with my day and i can feel a little bit better about what's going on but yeah All throughout it. there's sort of crushing unending. Dread in the back of my mind while it's happening is it focused on anything in particular just dread as dread. I mean it definitely is directional. You know i. I'm worried about my body. I'm i was out of the gym for two weeks. Because i was sick and i was on vacation. I'm you know. I have pretty pretty not extreme but i have a unrelenting bodies more about how i look and so there's that There's this guy that i have met and opened up to for the i i you know i don't open up to people i don't date and so there's anxiety about that.

"depression" Discussed on Dishing Up Nutrition
"Good morning. Carolyn it's good to be here with you today and my name. is joanne. right out. And i've been a registered and licensed i- titian for more than thirty years. I worked at courage center for about twenty five years before i came to nutritional weight and wellness so i worked with many clients who were suffering from depression and today i work with many clients were experiencing peri menopause or menopause and they are experiencing a different type of depression so the common thread of all types of depression is the foods you eat can affect your depression and you know the thirty years ago. Nobody was connecting food choices or diet to depression. They weren't connecting food choices to a lot of things right. A lot of people still don't. Yeah so i really agree with joanne. So back then when we both started our careers right wasn't anyone who is connecting. What people eight depression so good morning everyone. I'm caroline hudson and joanna. And i have a couple of things in common. I've also been a registered and licensed citation for more than thirty years and as dietitians over the years. We have both seen extreme swings in nutrition advice. I think back to extreme. Yeah so everything from telling people that eggs are bad for you right well and i still hear that from many of my clients because the doctors are still telling them that some doctors. Yeah telling them that they should now. Oh yeah it's okay. Have several eggs weekly to support your brain function. So in recent years researchers found that eggs from hans <hes>. That rome out in the pasture grass and worms that those eggs contain a special fat. That helps your brain function better. That fat is one of the omega. Three fatty acids called d. h. a. So this is also found in breast milk and from algae that eat fish. So that's one of the reasons way. Breastfeeding is so important. Yes absolutely and you may notice with those eggs that are have come from pastured. Eggs that <hes>. Pastured chickens that the yoke is orange. Yeah they'll added a deeper color. Yes yes and that's a sign of a really good egg so you may want to remember that fact so today we will focus on the brain and the relationship between depression and your diet so recently you may have seen the following headlines. Depression triples in the us adults amid covid nineteen stressors. I can so believed that this has been a very stressful time for everyone <hes>. So this was reported because of the findings <hes>. In a study published in the journal of the american medical association this study found that twenty eight percent of adults reported having symptoms of depression since the start of corona virus <hes>. Pandemic compared to only eight and a half percent before covid nineteen. Well that's amazing. So that's a twenty percent increase anchor for at least four times as much. Yup that's a lot and during the stressful time. It is even more important to choose your food carefully to support your immune system and also to support your brain health in the past. Very few people connected their food choices to their brain health and depression and many people today understand what they eat can affect their risk of getting heart disease and most of them have also made the connection between their diet and type two diabetes and our longtime listeners. Now backed off what they eat to their aches and pains however very few people know the connection of their food choices to the deep to depression and their brain health. So when i asked clients experiencing depression what do i what do you eat. They often reply. I'm just not motivated. So i often eat anything. That's handy maybe fast food. Maybe junk food because i'm too tired to cook and i see that in front of me all the time. My son often. He does over from anxiety and depression often makes three corn dogs for breakfast. Oh boy and a pizza for dinner. So there's a lot of inflammation there. But he doesn't want to hear what i think about that and how it may affect him. Yeah i've been seeing long lines at the fast food places. I'm just i'm stunned. Every time i drive bri especially around the lunch hour or the dinner hour. I see these long lines of cars out into the street from the drive thru brazi. Well and it's just not you know about what's happening with with. We see so many people in that age range that are really kind of living on fast exactly so one of my clients shared that she basically lives on coke every day and grabs food at the nearest fast food place and her diet is totally lacking in nutrients so the nutrients these are needed for her brain function and her basically is made up of inflammatory and damaging foods full of sugar and of course those refined oils remember those oils. We are brain as a lot of fat so we don't want that oil wells in our diet and many food chemicals and food is. This is often that type of diet that many people have lived on for years. And it's a diet totally void of critical nutrients for brain function <hes>. So i like to compare it to this. You know if you don't put gasoline in your car. You're driving down the highway and what's going to happen. You're going to run out of gas. And i you know it starts to sputter a little bit and then it slowly dies because it no longer has any gas in the tank so the same thing actually happens with our brain only we can call it fatigue and depression when we're out of gas right so it's just amazing. It is amazing and that's a really good analogy so it's so true in again in the past. The cause of depression was thought of. I remember learning this. When i was occurred center listening to in services about the topic it was a biochemical problem was a biochemical imbalance or maybe it was a genetic problem or even that the depression was emotionally wooded such as having a poor childhood but not surprising to us. Is that many studies now have found. Poor nutrition plays a key role. Not only in the onset of depression but also the severity of the depression. Plus the length of time. The depression will go on so currently because of the extra stress. We are living with dude kobe. Nineteen it's really important to feed our brain the key nutrients your brain needs to counter. Act your current stress. So if you don't understand what your brain needs to avoid depression. How can you possibly achieve and maintain good brain functioning and be free of depression. So what are some of those brain nutrients it may surprise you that these nutrients come from food and not medication.

That's where you currently are but to know that you're not alone in that other people are experiencing depression as well. It's not just you in the world and so well from my point of view. I would assume that every client would be Depressed you know they come to you. And they're beginning to to reach out to to heal from from all of the abuse or to to end it for themselves and their children and how that works But but i would assume that would not be the case that you can't just say well they must also be depressed. So how how does that. How would you go about treating or talking with people differently. Obviously there are going to be some signs that go beyond just you know a normal reaction to the trauma. Yeah so we look at depression. Were looking for significant changes in the way that you used to go through life. You know so that your behaviors. Your thoughts have have significantly changed because again. It's not about it being today. i'm depressed. it's daily weekly monthly. i've been. I've been dealing with this and so we look at a loss of energy. You know i'm tired and fatigued all day long. Even though he didn't do anything right. I i don't wanna get out of bed.

Work that i used to do Who would sit on the couch and like defecate and wet on themselves because no energy to get off the couch and go to the bathroom even though the bathroom was five feet away. So there's a gun there's a range of all these things. I could not leave my bed for three days. But i could still get up to go pee get some head depression and then there's depression and there's always a different scale of severity and all the different symptoms of it so it could.

"They not saying that you would but as you didn't guilt him into going. It's always difficult part with people with you know going through depression is they can't on something and then they're just going to be like well. He'll always cancel That's not going to be helpful. So i've probably done that before. But not in this instance. No but honestly i feel like and not saying that. This has been in relationships. That i will say what has helped with friendships. Is the friends that i've been able to vocalise. Might depression with and they know that. I'm currently going through the though just usually just either come over. And say hey. We don't have to go out. 'cause like i don't wanna go anywhere public but you come to my apartment will like watch tv ice cream ice cream. What flavor. Who can resist ice crave. How dare you. How dare you laura me with ice cream. So i don't just honestly sometimes the best thing for in for me. When i'm going through depression. That would be perfect for any partners. Just sort of just hanging out together but honestly not talking about it. Because i feel like most time. That person isn't gonna want to hang out to talk about the brushing. They just need sometimes. They just need like an escape then. Just someone to be there that. I think that goes a long way like i know. Like sometimes My friend when she knows that. I'm going through depression. She's a k- you know. How's everything going. It's okay. I guess in. They're like oh all right. Well you know. I'm always here to listen or if you wanna come over rican. Just do something. Sometimes it's like small acts like that held more than trying not try to get to the bottom of it. Because i feel like most people on. They're going through depression. The last thing that they're gonna wanna do is to talk about it. I think honestly talking about depression. Wind people aren't in the middle of is usually a lot easier for me to talk about. Depression is a lot. It's it's easy when i'm not in it. 'cause right to call are able to recap all of this but like all right but during yeah i think. Yeah i definitely notice. When i said things like i'm here if you wanna talk or like more putting it more passive than active right like if you wanna do this. I'm here for you nothing..

"Dot com slash sounding board. Okay let's get back into this condo. Yeah i mean people will say though. It's like okay so it's a chicken and egg. It's like if this is something that truly i think with depression you can learn how to manage it but it might just be something. That's part of your makeup right like in general anyone struggling with depression. So what's the line of being ready to date versus like getting your own self in order. 'cause yeah i've thoughts about this. I'd love to hear yours. I think sorry. I feel sorry. Thank you feel. You're such an evolved man. The therapy i. I definitely feel that i. I don't know i think that's why i didn't date a lot in my twenties or date long-term in my twenty s because i just didn't really get a handle of the and not saying that that's the main reason why now that i think of my time in therapy. It's made it a lot easier to manage and understand verbalize all of the to the point where it's cool like now one you know once..

"Or i don't know so that's where i felt like that's how mine felt like i was push people away or not want to be as engaging as i usually am a usually want to like tex people the other doing but when i'm depressed off the loan. Yeah i mean. I've definitely dealt with like situational like after a bad break up. I was definitely feast depression. But i dated someone that that was more on the clinical depression side so i of firsthand some of the stuff. You just mentioned like the isolation not wanting to return to phone calls and tax when you're kind of in that state like how has it shown up for dating for you. Because i know being on the receiving side of that it was definitely like there was challenges and it was like one of those things that you wanna obviously understand where the other person is coming from and all that but it is hard to feel kinda pushed away when someone isolates and all that. What are your thoughts. It's always tricky. Because i felt like honestly in my twenties. I didn't really deal with my depression. Well i probably never really mentioned it to anyone and it was like one. Say turn thirty. And i also you know what i'm going to make a change and i think that's when i started going to arab. There are times where ever since. I started dating afterwards. Not saying i would bring it up right away a win in a second or third date with someone and just sort of came up in the conversation. I wasn't doing it to self sabotage. But i felt like it was important for probably had gone to therapy that week so i was like what i'm just bring this up and it was just really interesting because when i was talking to her about that i didn't get the response expecting she was wanting. Oh we'll tell me more. Like oh okay cool but i think it was fair because then i learned later on why we continue dating where she told me that her ex was going through depression but he wasn't really working through it so i think the reason she wanted to know more about it was to understand. What are you doing to work on that instead of just kind of hoping that i wasn't gonna turn her into my therapist or something like yes..

"Is that you as as the partner gets depressed because you feel helpless you feel like you can either for your partner or your partner is choosing not to show up for you which is not the truth. But it's like when you're in that relationship and your emotions are tied to this person. It's really hard to separate the two. So i'm really glad that we're bringing up because we've talked about mental health ending before he'll were specifically talking about depression for this particular episode. Because i think it will be relatable for so many of you out there. Yeah we talk about two in this episode that there's very there's different types of depression like there's more seasonal depression there's more clinical depression that really like you know has to do with just your own genetic makeup but i think covert is like. It's almost like a deuce slew of seasonal depression and yet like i think a lot of it comes down to to how you're managing it and what steps they're taking so it's not to say that like people that are experienced depression or unbeatable by any means. I think all of us have bouts of depression in different ways. It's just how do we like manage it and kind of work to be the best version of ourselves with it. And i really like that in this in this conversation with tony is that we don't. We don't talk about depression and mental health as a way as an illness. Because it's part of who you are. And i think part of it is cultural differences like i taught i bring up sort of growing up in an asian household where you think about depression as you're at fault while you're depressed because you made you got yourself there. That's really the case. A lotta time or editor jerry. It could be imbalanced. So i like that. We don't place the blame. It's more about if you have feelings of depression. how do we navigate. An how do we thrive in that environment. Because it is doable. We definitely recommend people to listen to the older episode. Because it was. I think actually by the bid are both popular episode or one of our top episodes is called mental health dating with jonathan fan. Tram who has a startup called reflects so we talked a little more like high level. He also did share his own stories and own challenges with anxiety and depression but we did talk like more high level of how it shows up in dating and relationships and of course was pre pandemic. so there's a little bit of a different twist. But i think a lot of that stuff is. This is a good complement to this episode for short. So go back to our back catalogue. If you haven't or just religion again. I might do the same. I think it's always helpful to hear these types of conversations absolutely because it helps you put language what you're feeling sometimes you're just like What is this thank zayed's it's not anger at what is it and hearing other people's experiences has really opened up my leg. My just my vocabulary up at how. I describe my own emotions and mental health. So it's really fantastic to listen to these interviews even if you're kind of newer to the space you're like oh this is the first time m starting to feeling not myself well. This is the perfect way to open up. That conversation with yourself about what is happening in your mind or if you have a partner that's going through this. It's definitely that. I think it was really helpful to hear like i've experienced this with my axe and i've obviously heard his experience. But it was good to hear tony. Who is like totally moved. You know because it's like the emotions of talking about it with a partner is different than just hearing someone else share their story and i think there is a lot to be learned from that and yeah i mean we haven't i was looking back like what episode was it was.

"Able to do that. So yeah. So how I managed you know depression now is is probably pretty important because this is just kind of had its etiology, you know, you know, this is kind of had its Journey, you know, I'm just fumbling my words. This has had a had a life of its own and I have kind of been on a journey round major depression and I think that where I'm at now with it, you know, I've used different tools over the years, but what I found now, you know by the age of Forty-Eight, there are some things that really do help me and medication certainly is one. I'm not taking any medication right now and wage haven't been on a new medication for depression for about six years. As a matter of fact, that doesn't mean it's cured. It just simply means I don't feel like it's gotten I've had dipped so severe that I've needed a job. And my dips now is tend to be much more mild than not and who really knows but no doubt. I've kind of walked to that edge. So if I was to go back on medication, you know, I would certainly go back on Prozac just works really really well. One of the other things that works for me. Of course, you've heard me talk about lots and all part of her life psychology and mental health is Fitness and I had this complicated challenging relationship with running as in particular and running is one of these activities that I do that really improves my mood in in probably the most dramatic way. It's both I would say I get I get a sense of well-being after a super long run and I and I also find that it's a bit preventative that my anxiety is a whole lot better for days to come as a dog. We have to really long runs. So keeping my fitness at such a level to where I can do long runs is very very important. And I know that we're my depression has kind of started to show off my head again is where my fitness my VO2 max or whatever tends to fall enough to where I can't do those long efforts and logging efforts are really defined as 10K or more on that sweet spot for me is around twenty two k that is just like oh that is an ideal distance where I noticed the impact of the run on my mood and anxiety just it's so directed so black-and-white. So anyway, I don't want to go on and on about that. But let anyone who denies the power of you know, Fitness can't help you man. It is it is, you know being looking physically fit is not the point, you know, being fit enough to be able to go for an activity for a period of time to gain the emotional mental health benefits of it. That's really the point. I'm a big guy. I'm not I'm fat boy running guys. I am not summer. Wiring thing that runs 22k every time they go out I've battled with us but I've battled with it. That's the point as I keep going back to it. Cuz I know what it does for me. So it's not about being a professional athlete. It's I consider myself an athlete but if you look to me, you wouldn't think that I keep at it. That's the whole point and I think everyone should it needs to be part of every treatment plan off some kind of physical activity routine diet is one of these other things very controversial. I don't subscribe to the idea that there is a diet for depression..
