Covid long-haulers turn to Seattle rehab clinic

"The corona virus arrived in the seattle area about a year ago. Some who got cova early on are still suffering. The people who still feel the effects of the disease months after their initial diagnosis are called long. Haulers reporter eilly show. Neil has more now on wear long haulers in the seattle area are turning to for care. Donna lawson is forty seven years old. I met her in the backyard of the house. She shares with her husband and teenage daughter in west seattle. I'm a designer artist. In a mother lawson got code back in march at the very beginning of the pandemic at first it seemed to be a mild case. But then things got worse in. May she was hospitalized for three days with low blood oxygen and when she got home she didn't get better. My legs feel like jello. All the time very very weak on really bad days and bad times. I'm trudging through. Concrete is what it feels like or like their cinderblocks literally on my feet or magnets pulling me to the ground. los and says she can't concentrate a remember things. She's tired all the time and no longer has the energy to make art or volunteer at her daughter's school. She says on a good day she's eighty percent of her old self for a few hours other days. She can't get out of bed. That gets me really choked up. Who knows if. I'll be myself again. I'm usually a pretty confident person. I really love helping people. And i love spreading joy. It's really hard to do that when you don't feel joy about ten percent of people who get covid still have at least one symptom two months after their diagnosis more women than men suffer from. What's being called locking cova. They have a broad range of symptoms from shortness of breath to trouble sleeping or concentrating to depression or anxiety. Lawson was never able to get a cova test because there weren't many available at the beginning of the pandemic so she says throughout her illness. Some doctors haven't believed that her symptoms are due to long cove. It when you have medical professionals poo poo what you're saying you can't help but wonder if you're crazy person. If the reason lawson and other long haulers have struggled to find care is that doctors don't fully understand long cove it yet when they run standard tests on long haulers most results come back negative exact mechanisms yet some of the basic science still pending and that will be helpful for guiding treatments. Aaron bananas a rehab physician at the university of washington's harborview medical center. He says researchers are still trying to figure out exactly what causes long cova loose suspicion that this may be a more of an immunologic response in patients or some of the micro-vascular pox insults that are occurring. Maybe causing some of the brain fog and other words long hunters immune systems could still be an overdrive or maybe their brains are still suffering from being deprived of oxygen pandemic worked with covid patients after they were released from the icu. But over time it became clear. It's not just the patients that have been hospitalized in who are very sick that are having long term symptoms and we're seeing this even in patients who may have been sick at home but now three months later are still struggling. That's why been now started a clinic. At harborview specifically serves cova. Long haulers. It's one of many such clinics that are popping up across the country to clinic. I if you want clinic part. Medical office part gym with treadmills parallel bars and other equipment to help patients build back strength and the ability to walk but now seems to know everyone here here he is. I've been good. How are you handsome every day. Now and his team are experts in rehab medicine. They help patients with their recovery and coordinate their complex care but now says his goal is to help his patients get back to whatever they were doing before they got sick. Got a law in our critical illness. Survivors that yeah. Their their heart is still beating and their breathing but everything that they valued and was meaningful in their life is now lost so i think our hope is that just wanna make sure were addressing getting or covert patients as much life as boston so far. This is the only clinic like this in the region. So it serves patients from oregon alaskan idaho as well as washington but now says at first. There was only a trickle of patients. But now the clinic gets forty new patients every week.

How Poor Food Choices Lead to Depression

"I'm caroline hudson and a registered and licensed citation for many years and over these years. I have seen firsthand the impact. The foods people eat have on their body and of course their brain health so last week car us started the show with a great quote from dr. Alan are gay. He's the author of nutritional medicine. That's really a science nutrition reference book for physicians and healthcare practitioners. Here's what he wrote. And i quote big macs lead to zantac which leads to prozac so if you jin tier that quote last week i'm going to go into a little more detail about that. So eating big macs making poor food choices. Time and time again often leads to digestive problems gastrointestinal problems which will most likely require some kind of digestive medication. such as an tech or prior lasek. Nexium practice said. Tom's you know we all hear about those right. So taking any of these digestive medications often leads to an inability to break down or digest your protein and that's going to result in a deficiency of amino acids and you need amino acids to actually make neuro transmitters. Those are those you know. Feel good brain transmitters especially serotonin and deficiency of serotonin can actually bring on depression and may eventually bring about a need for an anti depressant. Prescription like prozac. So being a dietitian again for over years. I've had the opportunity to observe the impact that process food diet has had on the decline of people's health both the health of their body and the health of their brain

Could This Simple Hack Reduce Anxiety and Panic Attacks? with Dr. Kristen Allott

"Dr analogy welcome to the broken brain podcast. It's an honor and a privilege to have you here. Thank you so much drew. I am so excited for this conversation. I think it'll be just fine Back and forth to share information. Yeah i love what. You're bringing to the world in this topic of anxiety and i think that we zoom out in the context of the current world even prior to cove nineteen pandemic anxiety. You could see that. The instances and usage of the word in just general language newspaper social media is skyrocketing and you know languages so powerful and sometimes we really have to parse apart a word to really understand like what do we really mean when we're saying that because sometimes we say anxiety and we actually could be meaning something else when you talk about this world of anxiety and your new book which we're going to get into in a little bit. What do you really want people to help understand. What exactly is anxiety. Yeah so i think that's a great question. And i will just tell you how i approach that When i started in practice about fifteen years ago Because i'm a naturopathic physician acupuncturist decided to specialize in mental health. And people were coming in. And saying i'm anxious and and i just didn't think it was like so. How does that apply. Physiology was really the question that i was interested in and because some for some people it's stress for some people. It's i'm afraid to move forward and take a step forward for some people. It's a i'm overwhelmed like there's all sorts you know. It's a catch word as you say. And but there's also a curious about what the physiology of depression or anxiety or whatever these words were saying. And and so i. When i started in practice i literally in my on my living room floor. I had stock physiology textbooks a stack of neurology. Textbooks and the dsm and the dsm is the diagnostic statistical manual. It just describes. What the diagnosis categories for anxiety are and i was just like will. I think it's more than just an emotion like a candy but like the people were coming in with panic. Attacks like that is not an emotion that is a full embodied experience right. And and so i started just parsing out like what are the. What are the fizzy. What physiology causes these physical symptoms of shaky and racing thoughts and your heart racine. And maybe you're sweating and and all those symptoms that you know sometimes it starts small and Escalates to really big asu started to parse that out and then was like well. Once once i started to understand the physiology in the neuro physiology will. Where do we. Where can we intervene to help. People feel better and so answering your questions kind of copying out. But it's like. That's that's the approach that i took because so many people were using words and i was like i want a grounded in something concrete. Absolutely i mean if we look at the history and evolution of just anxiety and a lot of mental health. A lot of these things in early medicine were considered to be They're kind of in your head right like nothing else is going on right. We made a documentary a few years ago. Which then led to the name of this podcast. Broken brain my business partner. Dear friend dr mark hyman. We made a documentary called broken brain and the underlying premise. That documentary was what you do to your body you do to your brain. Your brain is not in. This isolated eight oregon that just as floating on top of your head. That's completely disconnected than the rest of everything. That's going on there actually an intertwined system and we have to understand that yes there can be. Let's call for lack of a better term emotional factors that are there right. Stressor is the complete driver of so many different things that we feel but let's also look at the physiology of what's happening underneath so when it comes to that topic of anxiety and the physiology gonna ask you a question which is a question that i came across a few years ago in a book by peter thiel little bit of a controversial character. But i really love this question that he had inside of this book. I think the book is called zero to one and he said what truth do you believe is true that other people disagree with in that category. So when you look at right what do you believe is true when you think about anxiety and physiology that people maybe traditional western medicine will say like. I don't know if that's true. Yeah so The one truth. That i see time and time again is it is really hard to have a panic attack. If you just ate. And i don't see panic. Attacks occur unless people are five hours from food or more at or they may have eaten some really sugary substance to at two hours ago. But if you had a real meal. It is really hard to have a panic attack. That's powerful right. There and people like that is not true and and the same applies to suicidal Which is know just part of the spectrum of people keep doing doing panic attacks they can get there and and and and the reason for that is that are i mean i can go into the physiology but but people don't believe that until they start looking mental health professionals or physicians and then when they want start looking at the pattern it holds true. Now there's always an exception to the rule ways but it holds like ninety five percent true

The Neurobiology of Peak Performance with Steven Kotler

"So early in the book. Stephen writes that the only thing more difficult than the emotional. Toil of pursuing true excellence is the emotional toil of not pursuing excellence. I thought that was a really striking idea. Sort of starter interview. I asked stephen torn pack that for me. It's not a new idea. Abraham maslow's psychologist in the fifty s by sang. Whatever a person can be they must be humans evolved to go after sort of to rise to their full potential to tap into their full capability and there are significant consequences. If you don't use the system for how it's designed and and that sounds weird. They're eight major causes depression two of them genetics trauma get the most attention on genetics. Alone will never caused depression or anxiety and trauma as a general release to most radic growth not stress. The store on the other six categories are what happens when you fail the optimize intrinsic motivation. The way it's been designed to be optimized and things along those lines to breakdown in saves system that allows us to tackle high hard goals which were built to do. if we don't it starts breaking down on us for with significant consequences. When i read that what i thought and i'm curious what you think about this as okay pursuing true. Sounds like something for the very few like that. Is that is sort of like your olympic athlete. Your see over major company. But i guess what you're saying is this. This is something that needs to be universal. So how how does somebody who you know. Just kind of normal life integrate. The idea of two excellent into their own life an interesting question. I think most of us have singer to that. We do. Maybe falls in the hobby category for us. Prove that for that matter that we would love to be great at. I haven't met too many people who don't have one or two things like that on this essentially the system is built for that and and the handle that capacity. It's interesting on the more important point though is in this is a point. I make throughout the book. Which is the book is about people who are really interested in tackling high hard goals. Right what would we might call through excellence. But it doesn't matter because people form has nothing more or less than getting our biology work for us rather than gets a so. If you want to have an easier time at work on monday to make better decisions on tuesday you want to be a little more productive on wednesday. Maybe some creative problem solving on thursday. Take your pick the same tools that allow us to achieve. pure excellence. Chur excellence are of the same tools that we can use to improve our performance at any level. That's the only toolkit there is which is our biology. You talk about how you came into this world of looking at extreme performance and you use the term extreme innovation and it started out. Interestingly enough wasn't a lab it was in the world of extreme sports and he were journalists covering it so just to get us kind of in your head and how you were called to do this type of work. How did you arrive to the place you are today. I became a journalist in the early nineteen ninety s journalists astounding career. Because you get to kind of exploit your curiosities right anything. You're super passionate about their You you could write about. And i was super passionate about psychology and neuro science predominantly neuroscience fascinated with how humans work and neuroscience seemed to unlock a level of of kind of human mechanism. It was super interesting to me on the other side. I was obsessed with action. Sports adventure sports rock climbing surfing skiing. Snowboarding in the like and this was the early nineteen nineties. These sports were just kind of nascent activities. The gravity games just starting the x. games had just been launched and there weren't a whole lot of writers who knew much about the sports and i did. I was super curious. So i was lucky. Enough to basically spend the better portion of a decade chasing athletes around mountains across oceans. And as you pointed out the nineteen nineties is often considered the great era impossible in action. Sports were more impossible. Feats meaning things that were believe. Never going to happen. Never been done never going to be done. Were just being done. They were being iterating upon and this caught my attention for all the obvious reasons like it. Just it didn't make any sense. Waves that had been twenty five feet at. That was the max we could serve some. They were one hundred feet tall. Like everything was happening Like that across across the board in all these sports so it begged an explanation but more important was that there was a real every man effort to what was going on the the athletes. I knew who are sort of reinventing. The limits of human possibility. They had difficult childhoods came from broken. Homes it very little education the deb. A lot of money is let drugs and alcohol. There was a lot of risk taking. And you know. I knew from the narrow size of the psychology that normally when those things show up in a population you have bad consequences. People go to jail. People die young. What they don't do is reinvent. The limits of human performance over and over and over again and. That's exactly what. I was seeing so that was sort of where this started for me. I wanted to understand what i was looking at

How Breathwork Affects Your Brain And Helps You Experience Transcendence

"Have you ever heard stories of people coming out of meditation or breads work journey or even from plant medicine ceremony and talking about this profound sense of connection and unity and oneness this experience of feeling connected to everything around him and drowns ending beyond separation. Have you experienced that yourself and to really understand this scientifically. We need to understand the term default mode network. You see the demon. All the default more network is the name given to a network in your brain that has been shown to be crucial in normal everyday consciousness. That is when you're out and about your shopping. You're having a conversation and aimlessly browsing on your social media. Feeds the demon helps us function in the word and when it is added speak activity level is linked to mental processes such as our awareness of ourselves that is our ego construct our relationship those around us and how they perceive us and our relationship to the past and to the future. That is what happened why it happened. What could have happened. What will happen. What won't happen and questions like this. Does that sound familiar now when you are focused on a specific dusk such as solving a puzzle. Are snowboarding down. The mountain are trying to catch a moving ball. That's usually win the d. m. n. is at its lowest activity level. Now since we're talking about the brain year the default mode network has been linked to many mental conditions. Let's take the example of depression. When the demon is hyper active it can lead to excessive self reflection and creating of narratives and stories that are inaccurate or excessively negative. That's because the or active demon is always comparing our present state with something that happened in the past or projecting months or even years into the future. Another interesting thing is that the demon is intricately connected with chronic. Been being such a subjective expedience and often dime connected with an underlying emotion or memory that the person keeps going to again and again and it's hard to quantify pin because different people might have different reactions emotional connections and dollar ince's do they're being but when a person with chronic been dense do ruminate and think about there being. This tends to increase the severity of the pain and is correlated to an over active d. m. and so. Are you seeing how all of this seems to make sense. What if there was a way to turn off or turn down the activity levels in your default more network so in my research so far. I've come across a lot of studies about the effects of meditation and psychedelics on calming the d. m. n. Meditation has been shown to reduce the activity in people. But here's the catch in people who have been practicing for years together. However there are some forms of meditation such as johnson dental meditation. Meditation that actually increases the activation of demon with. She is pretty interesting right. I'll need to learn more about that now. I did come across. Many articles that suggest that psychedelics namely ceelo siobhaun contained in the magic mushroom has the quickest most profound effect on calming the and creating what is known as ego. Disillusion or the ego death. I'm sure you've come across that term before. But how does it work so just imagine that each part of your brain bleeds it particular instrument. One part is playing the cello. The other partly as violin clarinet won the flu and so on and normally each of these instruments are playing individually unbeknownst off the other once silla sivan enters it is as if the master conductor of the orchestra who was knocked out of consciousness suddenly gains consciousness and wakes up and starts guiding the orchestra and so now there is a communication between different musicians sitting in different parts of the stage who were initially compartmentalized. But now they're playing together and there's a crescendo. And what you receive is beautiful music.

Can you tell us a little bit about depression. And how it started fee what it feels like. When did you realize that it's not just the normal sites. I guess when. I was just crying every single day all the time when i wasn't with people like even it got to the point. Where even if. I was going to the bathroom at work or just happened to cry and i was thinking night. Why why is this happening. Joel's like i really liked my job every like my colleagues. I wasn't actually feeding a reason to pinpointed on like nothing happened to me. i know.

What Happened To Connie Converse

"In nineteen twenty four elizabeth eaton converse was born into a devoutly religious family being by the nineteen forties. She changed her name to connie and moved to new york city to pursue music. She spent her twenties writing folk songs and rebelling against her traditional after little came of her musical ambitions in new york. Connie moved to ann arbor michigan in nineteen sixty where she took an editorial position at an academic journal by the age of thirty six. Connie was struggling with her mental health in particular and affliction she referred to as her blue funk. This was made worse. When in the early seventies connie received two devastating pieces of news. She lost her job and her doctor told her she needed a hysterectomy. After turning fifty in august nineteen seventy four. Connie converse said goodbye to her brother and friends packed up volkswagen beetle and drove away. Officially she's never been seen or heard from again in her final instructions to her brother. Connie asked philip to pay her health insurance up until a certain date. She never explained. Why but philip worried that something terrible would happen. When that day passed searching for answers. Philip found a filing cabinet that belonged to connie in his antics inside. He found old journal entries poems notes and a farewell letter addressed to quote. Anyone who ever asks it read. So let me go please. And please accept my. Thanks for those happy times that each of you has given me over the years. And please know that i would have preferred to give you more than i ever did or could i am in everyone's debt. Philip did as connie requested. He let her go for thirty five years. Never knowing if she was alive or dead always hoping she'd return but from the moment she laughed. Philip and connie's closest friends feared the worst they own about connie's blue funk for quite some time though. Connie was never officially diagnosed with clinical depression. So far as we know in her farewell letter she wrote as an over educated peasant. I've read a good bit about middle-aged oppression and no several cases other than my own. According to establish psychiatric consensus those who suffer from major depressive disorders tend to lose interest in activities that previously brought them joy in connie's case when she moved to ann arbor. She stopped writing music. But even while living in new york connie's lyrics described feelings of isolation in her song called. Sorrow is my name. She wrote from the perspective of sadness is self sneaking in and out of people's minds in the bridge of the song sorrow kroons. And if you fear me i will come in haste and if you love me i will go away and if you scorn me i will lay you waste and if you know me i will come to stay. Perhaps connie wrote from her own experience overcome by a deep unshakable sadness that she felt would live inside her forever. She certainly wouldn't be the first person to live with undiagnosed depression in fact historians theorized that many historical figures battled similar mental illnesses before they were ever fully understood for example. Both frankenstein author mary. Shelley and president abraham lincoln reported experiencing significant bouts of melancholy. They'd regularly fall into deep sadness often unrelated to the events of their day to day lives. Some scholars have interpreted these spells as episodes of clinical depression diagnosis. That didn't exist in the eighteen. Hundreds when both lived almost a century later as connie struggled with her blue funk there was still an incredible amount of debate surrounding what constituted and caused depression throughout the nineteen hundreds doctors around the world published opinions but the medical field never reached consensus early. Researchers like sigmund. Freud believed depression was the result of traumatic experiences of course psychologists today understand that the causes are much more nuanced and multifaceted. They include both genetic and societal factors and this understanding started to take shape in the nineteen seventies when clinician set standards for diagnosing and treating clinical depression then in nineteen seventy five one year after connie disappeared doctors. I coined the term major depressive disorder.

I was really close to but i was still sad. I didn't process it because the has stopped when he was ill. So i think i just put it behind me and i moved on the first time that i realized that it's affecting me now was lost year of a degree.

That thomas really shy person but the thing is it did affect me and slowly started to get pressure and i realized i was getting afraid or scared taught how to explain that feeling but i started to go into depression and although it was a really good student. I didn't do well in my lost year. Because i call a gauge the beginning of the year. It speak to anyone about it. I was acting fine. But when deep down i knew i wasn't able to concentrate on anything at post it so i started press graduate. Couth this will add it. Okay i have a here to get married. Maybe it will help be professionally. I was doing the k. Although it was quite stressful of doing fine but depression was getting at me. Especially close to the wedding. The to press i go. Can i just ask how did you know you're depressed. You had you recognize that you were depressed. What does the reason was able to concentrate. And if the parents asked me the okay lescot this list with is as a family and i wanted to say out at one to watch. Maybe with them. I didn't want to read books than i did. What to do. Anything dying -joyed doing. I always coveted up by saying this stressful. The coosa stressful. I want to do really well in. I was covered up with that with my parents at the new. I was old enough to make my own choices. So i knew that this was of depression because i was feeling who lived in treating myself happy from inside and did you make that connection to what had happened to you and the fact that you're getting married at that time you just was bewildered now. I didn't know why it would have a certain. Everything started like started. Feel so depressed when i was fine for these years the closer to getting the west got to be honest. I've well say openly by failed my postgraduate because i just couldn't concentrate the last few months ago a completely let go and failed there. Obviously i was proud by. I didn't even tell my parents because the results was supposed to come out after got married so i didn't want to spoil it but i also wanted to get married. It wasn't the. I was trying to avoid it but obviously i think you can imagine what happened. After a mariner what happened tell us rent intimacy. Salted is stopped. My husband that a a key felt as well as kind of disconnected at a wanted to cry a literally the first time when you were being intimate what was going through your head at that point. Did you connect to the trauma that happened to you as a child to how disconnected. You're feeling at the time of the did not fast enough snow. I think it was about a week later and it was newly married and it started to hit me really bad the i added. What my husband to touch me and it came became so bad that i had Nights i was employed at that time. I wasn't to what i was doing my job properly. I didn't want to be there and then it can. Appointment was current Three pink. I would get skit. I would think that there was somebody meru but it wasn't an hong. That's what was my grandfather who seems like what had happened with actually triggered. You're in trouble responses. So yes it took you back was also getting to go back to you know when you grandfather was his last moments and stuff you said you've felt confused and i think there is this thing about your grandfather being protected and also you know your such abuse for a child and even as an adult as well. It's a very difficult thing to actually come to terms with you know especially when our parents and if a parent or caregiver your grandfather is actually supposed to be somebody who's protecting actually he's also abuses. It's a really difficult thing to come to terms with But it seems like i toll set of grief process. I've told you cried. As i said after a marriage investment behind and i used to cry all the time on stock. Yeah so there was no grieving process when he passed away. Yeah what how did your husband react to what was happening. Did he think when newlyweds. You being shy or did he figure out. I think something was. He did figure out something was wrong. I thought it was because of stressed about the job. But because off from joe biden Sanctions some politics so basically stuff that she said.

Jim's Recovery Story

"I was born in a little town in virginia in an average religious home. My father a negro was a country physician. I remember in my early youth. My mother dress me just as she did. My two sisters. And i wore curls. Until i was six years of age at that time i started school. And that's how i got rid of the curls. I found that. Even then i had fears and inhibitions we live just a few doors from the first baptist church and when they had funerals i remember very often asking my mother whether the person was good or bad and whether they were going to heaven or hell i was about six then. My mother had been recently converted and actually had become a religious fanatic. That was her main neurotic manifestation. She was very possessive with us. Children another thing. That mother drilled me was a very puritanical point of view as to sex relations and as to motherhood and womanhood. I'm sure my ideas as to what life should be like. We're quite different from that. Of the average person with whom i associated later on in life that took its toll. I realized that now about this time an incident took place in grade school that i have never forgotten because it made me realize that i was actually a physical coward during recess. We were playing basketball. And i had accidentally trip to fellow just little larger than i was. He took the basketball and smashed me in the face with it. That was enough provocation to fight. But i didn't fight and i realized after recess. Why didn't it was fear that hurt and disturbed me a great deal. Mother was of the old school and figure that anyone. I associated with should be of the proper type of course in my day. Times had changed. She just hadn't changed with them. I don't know whether it was right or wrong but at least i know that people weren't thinking the same. We weren't even permitted to play cards in our home. But father would give us just a little tidy with whiskey and sugar and warm water now and then. We had no whiskey in the house. Other than my father's private stock. I've never seen him drunk in my life although he'd take a shot in the morning and usually one in the evening and so did i but for the most part. He kept his whiskey in his office. The only time. I have ever seen my mother take anything. Alcoholic was around christmas time when she would drink some eggnog or light wine. I remember my first year in high school. That mother suggested that. I do not join the cadet unit. She got a medical certificate. So that i should not have to join it. I don't know whether she was a pacifist. Or whether she just thought that in the event of another war it would have some bearing on my joining up about then too. I realized that my point of view on the opposite sex wasn't entirely like that of most to the boys. I knew for that reason. I believe i married at a much younger age than i would have had not been for my home training. My wife and i have been married for some thirty years. Now was the first girl that i ever took out. I had quite a heartache about her then because she wasn't the type of girl that my mother wanted me to marry in the first place she had been married before. I was her second husband. My mother resented it so that the first christmas after our marriage which was in may of nineteen twenty-three. She didn't even invite us to dinner. After our first child came my parents both became allies. But in later days after i became an alcoholic they both turned against me. My father had come out of the south and had suffered a great deal down there. He wanted to give me the very best and he thought that nothing but being a doctor would suffice on the other hand. I believe that. I've always been medically inclined though i have never been able to see medicine quite as the average person sees it. I do surgery because that's something that you can see. It's more tangible. But i can remember and postgraduate days and during internship that very often i'd go to the patient's bed and start a process of elimination and then very often i'd wind up guessing. That wasn't the way it was with my father. I think with him. It possibly was a gift. Intuitive diagnosis father through the years had built up a very good mail order business. Because at that time there wasn't too much money in medicine. I don't think. I suffered too much as far as the racial situation was concerned because i was born into it and knew nothing other than that. A man wasn't actually mistreated. Though if he was he could only resent it. He could do nothing about it on the other hand. I got quite a different picture. Farther south economic conditions had a great deal to do with it. Because i've often heard my father say that his mother would take one of the old time flour sacks and cut a hole through the bottom and two corners of it and they're you'd have a gown of course when father finally came to virginia to work his way through school. He resented the southern cracker as he often called them so much that he didn't even go back to his mother's funeral. He said he never wanted to set foot in the deep south again and he didn't i went to elementary and high school in washington. Dc and then to howard university. My internship was in washington. I never had too much trouble in school. i was able to get my workout. All my troubles arose. When i was thrown socially among groups of people as far as school was concerned i made fair grades throughout. This was around. Nineteen thirty five and it was about this time that i actually started drinking during the years. Nineteen thirty to nineteen thirty five due to the depression and its aftermath. Business went from bad to worse. I had my own medical practice in washington at that time but the practice slackened and the mail order business started to fall off

"To care for him as they know how intense is journey was. Thank you amy now over to well I guess. Another amy to tell us about a more low budget film. Hello this is sal away from Minneapolis. Minnesota one of my favorite movies is the station agent. This beautiful quiet little indie film. It was Peter. Drink Lynch's breakout movie actually About a young man named Fimat who has dwarfism who is willed by his friend an empty abandoned train station in the middle of nowhere New Jersey and he goes there to live thinking that he will have a life of solitude. Free of other people and that is not. What happens? The the thing that I love about this movie is the three main characters Finn and then Livia a woman who lives nearby and Joe who runs a side of the road coffee cart. They're all lonely. They're all palpably lonely. And as far as thin in the Livia those two characters are are for sure both depressed and are both living with grief and loss and even self loathing But they they show that totally differently from each other. So fen is completely shut down. He does not express motion. He is shoved everything down. He does not want to talk to people or see people. He's isolating he does not ever want to have to be confronted with the pain that he's carrying around and Livia is an artist and is big and flailing a needy and frazzled. And you can see her doing everything possible every day to sort of talk herself down from the Ledge. I just love how it works to the reality without exaggerating it or making it larger than life that we can be in pain with other people but still not be on the same page of pain next up Dave. Where's Dave Hi Dave and a lot of people will know this one by a short snippet of Song?.

"And stop the stigma surrounding mental illnesses not just depression but all kinds of mental illnesses. We enjoy having a lot of laughs on this show. It's a way of dealing with depression. Maybe demystifying it a little bit making not so scary but let's not kid ourselves. It's serious the good news is that people can and do recover. They get help. And that's why we need to make it okay to talk openly that can be an awkward conversation but make it okay dot org is full of information you can use like what to say or not to say and stories from people who tell you what it's like to live with depression anxiety and other mental illnesses go to make it. Okay Dot Org where you can take the pledge to make it. Okay thank you so much to health partners to make it. Okay for joining us in fighting stigma so we can all get better. Okay well everyone. Everyone back comfortable seats. Everybody cool okay. Let's dive into some more recommendations some previews of films that get depression right. I know a lot of people like this next one. So Erica Anna where are you okay? Hi Good let's have you both talk about this movie. It's a two thousand and four Michelle Gunnery film written by Charlie Kaufman. That takes place in a world where you can have difficult. Memories like from a collapsed relationship simply erased. This is Eric Samy from Irma South Carolina. Hi this is Anna from Oregon. One of the movies that got depression right for me was eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind exemplifies depression because we get to experience the cognitive distortions of the protagonist Joel Barish play by Jim Carey from overgeneralization to emotional reasoning and all or nothing thinking to labeling. We see firsthand how these cognitive distortions affect his well being spoke to the part of me. That just doesn't wanNA feel anymore As a depressed and anxious person my feelings can be heavy and painful and A lot of times it just wanted to stop and it's frustrating to me that I just can't be enormity. Anxiety occurs when we fix a on the future and oppression when we fixate on the path and this film definitely Spotlights Jones depression if I could just in race. What's in my brain and replace it with something that allows me to just be a normal happy person but in the end we get hope as JOE talks to. Clementine play by Kate winslet before losing his memory of her forever. She asked what do we do joy it. His two word response means we must.

"Soon to be high school senior son. Charley Getting Ready to apply to colleges booking the next season of our show and trying to do a good job writing the book. You're listening to right now and yes. There's always stress in life. We all go through stuff. But the rate at which is metabolized stress into depression had gone through the roof. It was a brutally efficient machine. What do you have to be stressed about? The normies might have said if I ever talked about these things with normal people. You have a family a house car a good job just deal with it as if I could simply do that as if I chose this as if I looked at the options available to me and they were clearly labeled perseverance and freaking the fuck out all the time and calmly said Yes I select option B. normies and sandy's are different. Uc Let's say there's a long bridge going over a High Canyon and there are two cars on it one for the normies and one for the Sandys the normies are in a big land yacht of a buick weighs a ton low to the ground. What a stiff wind blows. The normies feel a mild push but continued driving perhaps casually noting that. It's getting windy out there. Then they go back to listen to. I Dunno foo fighters the SANDIES are piled into a model t with a sail on top of it. For some reason they see the wind coming and it's all they can do to keep from being blown off the road and plunging into the Canyon. The normies struggle and wonder where the problem is because to them. The wind doesn't seem that bad. Try being more positive than shout as the SANDIES Model T. goes tumbling off the side. And the Saudis. Deploy the parachutes. They've gotten used to wearing. I'd had good therapists in the past briefly but all I ever took away from. Therapy was a somewhat clearer. Understanding of how messed up I was. That's helpful Shir but it's not really progress like knowing the brand of refrigerator you're locked in and this was not the fault of the therapists I had seen. Who were all trained pros and good at their jobs? It was my fault or cleaning these fault. I never wanted to go all that deepen therapy. Because that's where the monsters were. I'm talking about the really really bad memories. The deep bruises the scars the events that significantly shape a person through injury trauma rather than tackle the past. I was willing to settle for a tense ceasefire with it. Letting my life be like Middle East countries that hate each other. There would be car bombings but a homeland is a homeland. I'd gone through life with the belief often heard in simple-minded quarters of popular psychology that the past is the past and you just have to move on let it go the simple minded say again as if no one had ever tried that before Don Henley and Glenn Fry wrote a song along these lines called get over it my response on would be called fuck off Don Henley Glenn Fry. You don't know what you're talking about. I suspect most people who choose the willfully simplistic Henley method are people who've never had much unpleasant stuff in their pass to begin with because this notion is some bullshit. If you can't understand your past then you don't really know how your mind got to where it is now because you simply don't know yourself making matters worse. Depression causes the saddest to lose hope. It inserts despair where hope should go. And you're left at least suspecting if not believing in your heart that nothing will or even could get better so to figure things out. I mean. Depression doesn't even want you to get up. Take a shower and brush your teeth so something like figuring out and how your own mind works. Feels about as easy as taking a bus to Mars over and over and interviews I conducted for the show I heard about. Cbt cognitive behavioral therapy. It's a practical method of psychological counseling. That's built around retraining. Once thought patterns so that everyday stimuli aren't converted into toxic thoughts you tear down the old roads that always go to the bad parts of town and you build strong new highways to prosperous neighborhoods on the show. It was the guest who had gone through. Cbt who seemed to be doing the best. So when I went to find a new therapist I limited my search. They had to offer this specific approach. They had to be relatively close to my house so I couldn't talk my way out of going. And they couldn't be like twenty three and or named Christine with a K. An I at the end in that First Session. I only got about halfway. Through my biography I think most therapists and patients can get this all done in one session but we had to schedule a second fully. Describe all the MIC. I recall Julie's mouth actually dropping open during one description of family behaving in a not at all nurturing manner when you've shocked a professional therapist you've accomplished something at the end of the second half of intake. Julie paused collected some thoughts. And Said you've been through more than most other people. I gave myself a little mental high five for being the trauma champ quickly imagining lavish yet morose award ceremony. The longest road person with depression travels can often be the one between where they are at present and where they can get help to improve seeking them out making that appointment and keeping that appointment can be a Herculean task and yes. That sounds well crazy. If you can get better..

"It uses your brain to make you think that these lies makes sense. It's hard hard work blowing the bullshit whistle on that sometimes and sometimes depressions lies can be pretty creative. My name is Hannah. I live in Seattle donal and my depression likes to come up with lies that we're not in the throes of a depressive episode are ridiculously silly which makes them very easy to recognize now An example a few years ago was unemployed. Going through a really serious medical issue and deeply depressed might version decided that all of my friends that they weren't a secret club dedicated to hating the one day soon they would pull the got from under me and the way they would trip me was by doing nice things for me like bringing me food after surgery and not just take out food. That took a lot of time to make lasagna. brisket that kind of thing and and now. That's pretty hilarious. But at the time I was like Oh yeah that makes total sense. Of course. That's how they're gonNA drink me a more. Recent example is I published writing online online anonymously and some people have said some very nice things about that but my brain has decided that none of these people meant what they said and they all felt sorry for me. Because I'm a terrible terrible writer. And how could I ever think that anything that I wrote was worth reading. which also does it make any sense? Because these people don't know who I am. What has helped is really interrogating those weird lies because depression is in the business of making you feel bad and not making logical sense chance? I have at least one friend who I can go to who will tell me without judgments to not let depression drive the car. Even though it wants the keys very badly ably and the thing that's probably helped the most is cognitive behavioral therapy. It's a lot of work you have to put in the time in the effort but it really really really really helps. Thanks a secret club. A conspiracy. It's all built around this idea that since depression made do you hate yourself others must feel the same way about you. It's the only logical way you're capable of seeing yourself but it's line number nine if if people are being nice and caring toward you there's a very high probability that they like you and care about you because Clinton d diminishes your value you to yourself. It's easy to project that diminish self into other people's secret motives and agenda but it's ally Elissa mouser her. I live in Akron. Ohio Depression told me that I wasn't good not just that I wasn't good enough but that I wasn't good at all as a result I wasn't able to see my own value for a long time. I did things that were harmful to myself because I didn't care about me. Figured it out after realizing they help people and I do good things and then I can choose to do that. My depression just tells me that I'm not good but it's full of Shit like that. You're no good. You're not no good. That is good all right. Let's do one more make an.

"Okay. Let's expose more lies. Let's offer the service to our listeners. Because people deserve to know people are valuable and worthy of love and care and consideration which brings us to our next lie. Hello my name is Jared Adamson I live in Cincinnati Ohio. Depression told me it was my own fault. Holt it's not. It told me I was helpless to do anything about it. I'm not so I took control. I started with my primary care care physician and now I have a slogan of Jesus Coffee Zoloft. I walked away from a toxic situation. That depression told me I needed to stay in in for the good of my family and situation but I am better away from that which means my family is better and stronger because with with the help of my wife I was able to discern the truth we are living in a very happy state right now. I'm still working working on it. I'm still seeking treatment but I took back the truth. Hi My name is emily. I'm from Ravensdale Avondale. Minnesota depression showed up and started to lie to me constantly in medical school at the beginning of my second year. I missed classes and I failed to exams damns. I had to leave school for a year. I repeat my classes. The next fall when I started back to school with classmates had never met before. Depression lied and told me that I was wearing a sign on my forehead. That said I'm a failure. I'm weak. I have mental illness. It was hard to make friends and of course I still had depression. I kept plugging away. But I wasn't getting a grades. I wasn't achieving my way out of depression anymore. Depression lied and said see. You're not good enough. You won't make it as a doctor. But if there's one word that describes me it's persistent the constant lies. The depression told me kept me down. But not out I got into my first choice.

Even the at informed lehman might display sympathy rather than the standard reaction hi my name amos michelle. I live in kankakee illinois. My book choice was where'd you go bernadette. Even though it's told from the daughter's perspective it really hit home for me after having my daughter and me dealing with postpartum depression as a new mom it's easy to feel overwhelmed or like the life that you thought it was going to be isn't exactly what you turned out to have and that desperation to get it back can lead to some pretty severe depression and i really identified with a story ceremony. Nelson half moon bay california another suad listener recommended the bible particularly the psalms of david. I agree one hundred percent and the best part to me is that god called david man after his own heart which helped me to no end when i thought about the the struggles that david faced and the fact that god's still loved and cherished him and saw him and accepted him as flawed and still the man that david was supposed to me gene and perhaps that god in his wisdom and love and struggles looking at his own creation might go through the same. Hey i'm shannon receive from minneapolis in the book. That best captures depression for me is a little known. Semi autobiographical novel called welcome to my planet in it by shannon olsen for me.

And they realize how far they're willing to go to show their love for each other still pretty traumatic for both of them, and Jim and della. Of course, no that trauma can really Prager other mental health issues, so pleading depression, so off they went to the therapist to learn cope. Ping mechanisms. And perhaps a better way to route their anxiety and depressive tendencies, let's take a listen. Dela gym in our last session. We talked about how effective counting ten was when we were angry before saying anything, and we decided to try tending, no matter. What emotion we were having? How'd that go for you? Don't do it here. I Bill by the hour. Worked out. Okay. Yeah. They would miss it. If we stopped doing it either. I'm glad you said that I'm glad you agree with me still keeping up with the glads then. Yes, we're glad I need at each other all the time. So I wouldn't miss it. If we stopped that. That's not funny. That's not funny. All no, never stopped me. Jim. I swear to God. It's the light my heart plant needs to grow. Glad you like it. I don't like it. Jim I need it. Hugh Hewitt what you said. Wait. Wait, wait. What is that? But here you hear what you said, someone are you? Seeing another therapist. No. I know. Oh my God. You're seeing someone else Curtis. No. I just said what my instinct told me to say, okay. Let's change. Jim della. How was Christmas? Great best ever in a way, in a way, was lovely and ironic conversational pivot. You're just opposed to say fine. Okay. Okay. You say Jim saw these lovely combs that he just comb, my long hair, really just perfectly. Wait, your hair isn't long. Did you get a haircut? Don't don't. You're getting the story. Don't get ahead of the story. I'm sorry. Please. Okay. So you know, how selling hair is really common. Yes. Of course. Who has sold some hair walk a block without saying air buying place. Retail is a giant market one of the big way up. So so I sold my hair, which I mean, I had all that hair. I made a lot of money, but all is real sweet combs turned from the most thoughtful gift of all time to such a bittersweet gift bordering on mean that does sound mean. But at least you are hair money rich, but I wasn't rich because I use the money to buy a chain for Jim's pocket watch. Yes. Oh my God. Yes. That bogging. It's the best thing about giants. Oh, man. So great. It's just perfect. I married him. Why barry? Only one thing wrong with it. No chain. Not no Kane. Good enough. I found the team good enough must have caused a fortune. It did. Oh my God. You used all your hair money. I did use all my hair money. Only problem is I sold the pocket watch. Jim how could you all tell you how I could. I sold it to buy the combs for Delo. Oh. Oh. Wait, how expensive were these combs real expensive like expensive as a pocket watch? Well, I see what you're saying about Iran at Christmas. That's not even the ironic part. Well, it is unknown part. Sure. But the real ironic part is that without her hair. I kind of don't love della. And ironically without that pocket watch. How could you even love, Jim? I'll tell you. How don't you see it's right in front of you? You're both terrible. Sweep dummies who are both just so exact same. Same z's? Because we both sacrificed our one lovable thing about us for our loved one. And we'll do it again. Once our hair grew back and watched grew back. Yeah. I mean, I guess, but really because each of your love is fixated on the one thing of the other. Therefore, you're kind of perfect for each other. Okay. So maybe call it a day, marriage wise. Right.

"But then the letters started coming in and a guy that I went to the guy that I knew in high school named Don who went to a different high school, but he was the student body president there, and he was top of the world nicest guy, you'd ever wanna meet I hadn't heard from him in decades. And he wrote to me after our first show and said, I just heard your show with Peter Saigal. Because I'm a fan of his I'm a fan of yours. And I just so happened to be listening to it while I was on my way to work. It was my day. It wasn't my day to pick up my daughter and visit with her because that's my ex-wife's day. But I thought well, maybe I'll just go visit her at school and tell her I love her and then go kill myself, and I listened to your show, and I thought well, maybe not today. And. And we got it a lot of letters like that we started hearing from a lot of people volumes and volumes and volumes of people. And and we started kind of realizing I started kind of realizing, oh, this isn't a just a show for people with depression. This is the show for people who are touched by depression, which is to say people all of them, and and people really love talking about it and people really love hearing stories and telling stories, and I noticed that when I was approached by people they didn't have any questions about what we were doing. They just wanted to tell me their story. They had heard a guest on the show tell story or meet tell a story and they wanted to do the same thing. And so I'm at lunch by the oranges and. This guy comes up, and he says, hey, I've been listening to your show. I really love it. I want to shake your hand. And I said, oh, sure, I'm glad you like it. And he tells me about his mental health struggles and the struggles and hence family and the handshake stops. But after a while I noticed, oh, I'm still we're still connected here. And then I realized I'm just holding a dude's hand at the grocery store. This is new in my media experiences. But that's what it's about. And that's what we've been doing. And that's what we find. That people have been starving for. I think we do a good job with the show. But I think people are just really eager to have that connection and hear other stories and hear other voices. So we're going to hear some other voices here right about now. Thanks..

"And I got really stressed out. And so the more I did the show. I thought this is messed up. This is supposed to be the greatest thing. But somehow, I'm it's now it's not working. And I thought, you know, even if this is a dream come true and the dream job. Maybe I should quit because I'm not doing well. And then the show got cancelled which saved the effort. Got cancelled because of reasons. And I had been thinking even before this happened of thinking. Well, what about if I did some opposite things what if instead of doing a show in front of a thousand people I went into a tiny room and talk to just one person what if instead of trying to get it out to radio stations. I've just tried to get a show out to people. And so what if I did a podcast, right? And what if I? So I was kind of thinking what do I have to work with you know, like if you're gonna make dinner you open the cupboard in the fridge to try to see what ingredients you have. And I thought well, okay. What do I have? I mean, usually in that situation. I make an omelet, and it's not very good. And I thought well, I know a lot of comedians and musicians who become my friends, and they're really wonderful people. And also whenever I seen whenever I talk to people about depression and mental health. There's a great response. People really are are eager to talk about this thing instead of covering it up all the time. And I thought well what if I what if I combine those things what if I get comedians whose job it is to spread joy and happiness and then completely ruin them by having them talk about depression. Could work. But I also thought well, why are so many creative people so depressed all the time. And so I thought maybe that would be the focus of the show until I talked to patent Oswald about it. And he said, no, no, no, there's depressed, people everywhere you go. It's just that. We're allowed to talk about it at work. If your dentist talked about suicidal ID Asian you'd find a different dentist. With comedians. It's okay. And and so I started to put together this show and everybody kind of got on board with the idea right away, which really surprised me in a in a very delightful way. And ultimately, we kind of came up with the idea of thinking about what comedians and musicians do really really well, which is they phrased things in such a way that cuts through all the fog in the world and connects straight to your heart. And if it's a comedian that's doing that. What happens when they connect with you as you laugh because you're relieved because you're not alone. And that is an incredible talent that comedians have in musicians can do the same thing. Not with a laugh, but but with a lyric or not even connect with you, and you go, oh, I am understood. I'm not alone. I've made this connection with somebody. And and something good has happened thought. Well, what what if we just apply? That to depression, the thing that nobody really is able to define nobody can really talk about what this thing is. Right. And so that became the idea of the show, and we made the show, and we got this wonderful assistance from the organization health partners and make it okay dot org. They got on board early. I want to thank them right now in this theater for sponsoring us in a very fundamental way. Because those people and God love them for saying. Yes, we'll fund a thing called the hilar-. What is it called? That allowed us to go all over the country and make this show and make it reach a lot of people. Make good. So we started this show. And we really thought it was going to be oh, you know, a few people will download it will feel good about ourselves. And then we'll move on and go do something about Gulf or something. And then within a couple of days of it launching it was number two on the I tunes chart among all podcasts or among podcasts where no one gets murdered number one. And that felt good. And we got we got, you know, press coverage, and we won some awards, and it was really nice..
