Show 090 Mental Health Days and Fear of Elevators

There are treatment options that range in zero cost to a couple of hundred dollars. There is also a cost in time, being ready to accept that you have a problem and being open to the possible.

Some of the solutions might sound threatening or off the wall. I'll try to point you to viable, and authoritative sources. Or sources that are giving you the straight scoop but might have an ad on the page.

Learning as I go into the mystic.

Show 089.25 - Pebble on Medical Doctors Treatment Option

All of the cool kids are doing it. Honestly, I'm burnt out and need to inject some vacation time.

This is an Auphonic Audiogram extract of episode #3, what your doctor might offer you as a treatment option for your condition. If you are a newbie with your condition or diagnosis then this is important to listen to; if you have been around the block a few times it is a reminder.






Hit the play button and you will here the podcast as as small visual animation flickers on the screen. Sorry about it not being captioned. There is a change in voice quality. The microphone that I thought wasn't doing a good job apparently did a much better job than I realized.

The newer microphone I used to replace it, well...life happens. I need to rack up more failures anyway.

Show 089 Intro to Emetophobia or Fear of Throwing Up

Emetophobia is a strong, profound fear that your are gonna vomit or as the young ones say, throw up. It isn't so much about the actual throwing up but the intense fear of it. So much so that you structure your life to be as people and germ free as possible.

The hard part is to admit that you are doing avoidance work instead of dealing with this specific fear. Step one is laying the ground floor of information. Step two is finding credible safe resources to help you build your tool kit to recovery.
