"I have emotional motion sickness. Somebody roll the window down."- Phoebe Bridgers

This week I talk about how I navigate my life as I live with an anxiety disorder & depression. After a poll online I learned that so many of y'all wanted me to address this issue.

Inspired by a book called 'Furiously Happy' by Jenny Lawson I talk about my life thought the lens of some of my favorite quotes from this raw but also hilarious book!

(PSA: you will hear the anxiety in my voice as I do this podcast because just talking about this subject cause it's scary. BUT that is real life, so here we go!)

Topics include:

  • My personal experiences with anxiety & depression.
  • My experience with medication & therapy.
  • How faith (whatever religion you subscribe to) can help, but it is important to know that humans NEED other humans as well. We are not meant to be secluded.
  • What practical everyday things I can do to help with those anxious thoughts & feelings.
  • You will also hear my pup Zooey Beans tapping around the room, and she brings me joy. So if you're having a hard day just close your eyes and imagine you too have an adorable chiweenie in the room with you. ;)

    Thank you so much to Jenny Lawson for writing her book. You are making such a difference in peoples lives!

    I suggest all of my listeners to check out 'Furiously Happy' and all her other books. Trust me...you will love them.
