Episode Twelve – Slye and Elle, Redux (Part 2)

In this week’s episode:

I got my 23 and Me results back! It’s mostly things I knew, but there were a few surprises.

My Husband, Slye, is with me in the studio today.  He shares some tips about staying mentally healthy during the holidays, and we discuss his family’s history with mental illness.

In news, we discuss a recent article about the causes (plural) of bipolar disorder.  http://www.futurity.org/bipolar-disorder-causes-1632792/

Here’s another article on the same study.  It’s actually a bit more readable than the first.  https://www.bustle.com/p/what-causes-bipolar-disorder-scientists-think-theyve-found-7-potential-sources-of-the-illness-7618175

This week’s interview is the continuation of last week’s discussion with Elle.

Fire and Rain

By James Taylor

Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Susanne the plans they made put an end to you
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
I just can’t remember who to send it to

I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I’d see you again

Won’t you look down upon me, jesus
You’ve got to help me make a stand
You’ve just got to see me through another day
My body’s aching and my time is at hand
And I won’t make it any other way

Oh, I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I’d see you again

Been walking my mind to an easy time my back turned towards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows it’ll turn your head around
Well, there’s hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things
To come
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

Oh, I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought that I’d see you, baby, one more time again, now

Thought I’d see you one more time again
There’s just a few things coming my way this time around, now
Thought I’d see you, thought I’d see you fire and rain, now

 

A Conversation With “O”

In this week’s episode:

Honestly, I recorded this yesterday and I can’t remember a lot of what I talked about.  I think there was something about this video:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47y5bo8wtqM

It was also Veterans’ Day, so I talked a bit about Veterans’ Mental Health.

Also, If anyone has anything they’d like me to review, let me know!

My interview this week is with O from episode four.  We chat a bit about family life with bipolar disorder, kids, genetics, and the impact on spouses.
