Join us for a very special live broadcast...
It's been four weeks since the last time I aired a live show for you. In seven years, I've never taken this long of a hiatus. The truth is... I needed some time to get help with the depression that I've been battling.

Hows that for honesty?
Since I "came out" as someone who has been battling depression, the private messages have been pouring in from others who have either been silently suffering with this illness or have watched a love one suffer. Many didn't realize depression was an actual illness that requires medical attention until they read the description of my experience.

More people are affected than you may realize.
You won't want to miss today's discussion if the conversations you have with yourself sound anything like mine did:

"You can't be depressed, you have a wonderful life."

"Depression is for those who are not as strong willed as you are. It's for the weak. You are too aware and SMART to be depressed."

"You have nothing to be depressed about, so cheer up... do some affirmations, listen to some self development audios and get a grip."

"You can't be depressed. Your children need you to be happy ...FOR THEM."

If you or someone you know is suffering from this mental illness…

I PROMISE YOU... today's show will not be ...DEPRESSING (pun intended)!
On Today's Show...
I will be discussing the following:
❀ _My own personal battle with depression ... and how my life was just recently saved._

❀ The difference between sadness and depression and why you cannot manage them the same way.

❀ _What depression feels like and how to recognize if you or someone you love has been struck with this illness._

❀ _How to forgive and acknowledge depression whether it belongs to you or a loved one._

❀ _How to deal with it, not be afraid of it, and get THE RIGHT KIND OF help (even when nothing seems to be working)._

❀ _How to know when medical intervention is necessary and why taking anti-depressants DOES NOT make a person weak._

I will be joined by a very special friend for the hour.
Lisa Lamont has been teaching "Mirror Love" to thousands of women through a group she founded called Prancing Kittens. She has been a wonderful friend to me and so many others during some of the darkest times. Lisa will be joining us today to (mostly to hold MY hand) but also to give us deeply guided discussion on self love.

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
