So what is the true meaning of love?
 
 Is this something you have ever really considered or is love just love to you?
 
 Of course it is "just love",  why would it be anything different?
 
 The difference is many people don't love themselves. Especially people from there LBGTQI+ community who have some of the largest statistics relating to addiction, suicide and hatred amongst the heterosexual community. 
 
 It's the q...

Living with Psychosis.

It’s been ages since the previous episode. I could say I’m sorry, but I’m not. 

Listening to the final cut, I wasn’t ready for you to hear. It’s so personal and for the first time in a long time, I lost my confidence. 

I listened to myself reading a journal no-one was ever supposed to hear, now about to be on a podcast.

So, here you go, this is me, Mike Carroll “Living with Psychosis” the second episode in series...

Living with psychosis was the scariest and most spiritual of my life. It was also the loneliest of times. Lonely, because drugs are designed to be consumed with people, not alone, especially at the consumption level I was snorting up my nose.

Psychosis brought my deepest fears in life, to life, but only in my mind.  Slithering massive snakes; paranoia of being watched - on social media, in the street, at the supermarket; Sex parties...

I can’t believe I’m late for an appointment I was an hour early for. 

That’s so me at the moment. The late part, not the early. 

How could I have thought the location was opposite, when it was the 5th floor and there were no buildings five floors high opposite. 

I call the receptionist. We’ve got a history concerning unnecessary blood test repeats, so (sarcastically) I’m so looking forward to telling her I can’t find the place.  She t...

LBGTQI+ people experience varying degrees of trauma, sometimes masked with addiction, self-harm and suicidal ideation.

I masked my trauma with copious amounts of alcohol, drugs and being the party king.  

Always know you are never alone and suport is always just a phone call away. 

I hope you get value from this podcast. 

These will serve to be introductions to larger topics around Intersex in the future.

Thank you for your support.

Our first love will always hold a special part to our heart. It's through this connection that we first learn about intimacy and discover ways to make each other feel love. 

The first love and intimate partner for an intersex person is massive and can make or break   future intimate relationships. 

 I avoided intimate encounters throughout High School and am so grateful Janine was so accepting of me and even wrote a poem ❤️.

If we...

Families are said to be the centre  of our universe - not necessarily for intersex people, who can live their lives  - knowing they don't fit in, but don't know why.  It can take years to discover why we are different and for some it will take their life - either from old age or from suicide.
Being different is part of me and I'm so proud of that fact,  you have that right too.
I don't wish to be like anybody else or ...

Hi I'm Mike and I'm Intersex. It's a recent discovery that saw me launch a podcast telling the world in episode 1 - substance.

Getting used to being Intersex takes time to process. During that process I lost my voice, so yes it has been a long time between episodes. 

What have I learnt about Intersex, between the last episode and now?

Mike talks abut the advantages of understanding both sexes, being both sexes.

What questio...

She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
