In this episode, I answer three super awesome questions that all have to do with different aspects of relationships.
1- How to cope with a severely depressed spouse when you are prone to depression and anxiety yourself.
2- How to break down the walls that prevent you from truly connecting with other people.
3- How to "get over" the loss of a relationship.
This episode features a great interview with a new friend, Mike Billstrom from http://theartofgrowth.com. Mike talks about how he had to grow up very quickly to overcome an extremely turbulent upbringing. He found himself in the throes of depression, anxiety, and terrible self-esteem. That is until he found inspiration in the most unlikely of places...
Another awesome episode full of listener questions. Don't forget to send in your questions to me on twitter (http://twitter.com/duffthepsych) or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). In this episode, I cover these really interesting questions:
1- What can I do about my social anxiety when I have to interact with important people?
2- Is there hope for me in recovering from my sexual abuse?
3- Should I worry about hallucinations that come along with my migraines?
This is an awesome episode. I welcome my very first guest, Ryan, to the show. He is a buddy of mine from college and we talk about his experiences with depression. I am really happy with this interview because Ryan was so willing to talk candidly and openly about things that just don't seem to be talked about enough in every day life. He has an awesome personal blog and I reference a particular post that he wrote about depression, which you can find here: https://trecenti.wordpress.com/2016/03/18/depression/
