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.

Episode 11 – Elle, Redux

In this week’s episode:

I’ve been a bit under the weather this week, having taken 2.5 days off of work.  Luckily, I feel a bit better just in time to get together an episode!

In news and reviews this week, I came across an article that just made my blood boil.  It’s a Guardian article that talks about a lawsuit filed by a US former prisoner.  He alleges that severe neglect and abuse, in addition to not being provided adequate mental care, caused him to suffer sever delusions culminating in his gouging out his own eyes. (sorry).

In this week’s interview, I welcome back friend of the show, Elle.  She wanted to share some of her struggles with benzodiazapines and the stigma she has faced.
