PART TWO of my talk with an anonymous guest: from bible college to rehab.  It's the classic "it started out as a really fun time, and soon after became a horrific dependency" story.  Wait, is that a classic?  I dunno...  ANYWAY, on a solo backpacking trip in Europe, she broke her wrist in a drunken accident.  Naturally, it didn't heal properly so a number of surgeries later, she was left in a cast with nothing to do for an entire year (which was ample time to develop a dependency on cocaine and alcohol).  

We talk all things: 
disordered eating, 
cocaine and alcohol addiction, 
rehab + recovery, 
being HYPER SENSITIVE (HSP), 
TW sexual assault (briefly mentioned), 
TW self-harm (cutting), 
inter-generational trauma (how trauma passes down the line), 
therapy pets, 
VULNERABILITY + people taking advantage of us, 
the horror of shows and school (being HSP), 
and a whole shit ton more :)

PART ONE! Our guest was class valedictorian, got good grades, went to bible college, and didn't drink or have sex until she was 20, so how did she end up in rehab a few years later?  She appeared to be "excelling" in life (destined for great things), but she was SEVERELY depressed--her coping mechanism was disordered eating, and later alcohol and drugs.

This is PART ONE of her story.

We talk about:
being a highly sensitive person and an empath; 
organized religion; 
perfectionism; 
stage fright; 
feeling inadequate; 
being a female in a male-dominated music scene; 
overwhelming pressure to "succeed"; 
comedy specials; 
and SO much more.

Shayne Dyment has spent 22 of his 47 years in prison.  In the last few years, he has been diagnosed with BPD and ADHD which has allowed him to access support for his illnesses.  BASICALLY, Shayne is a glowing example of how untreated trauma and mental illness can manifest in EXTREME pain and suffering.  Oh, also, he's currently serving a life sentence for murder...  But, don't let that trip you up, because Shayne is one of the most sensitive, well spoken people I've ever talked to.  JUST LOOK at the episode photo--that's the smile of a kind soul. 

In the last few years, he's discovered theatre and poetry and piano and has found them to be TREMENDOUS outlets for his internal pain and his feelings.  

This is a MUST listen.  I know I say every episode is my favourite, but this one hits me right in the feelings.  

TRIGGER WARNING: talk of sexual assault, violence, murder, and suicide.

We also talk about: 
being abandoned by parents who struggled with addiction; 
sexual abuses he faced and hid from himself and the world due to shame; 
fear of rejection + abandonment; 
being HIGHLY sensitive; 
overcoming fear; 
solitary confinement; 
intuition & empathy; 
extreme feelings of loneliness; 
understanding your triggers;

and SO much more.

My ex-partner of 6 years and I haven't talked much since we broke up 5 years ago.  In this BONUS episode, we re-connect and talk about all the heavy stuff.  Plus, I get some closure??? 

For most of my life, I wasn't open about my struggles and I didn't talk about my feelings--this person had to experience emotionally void Kye.  I also identified as a cis-het male at this time...  WEIRD!  And, not surprisingly, I was unaware that I was depressed (despite being suicidal and unable to leave the house many days) and was diagnosed a year after our breakup (with G.A.D., major depression and B.P.D.

WHY AM I STILL HUNG UP ON THINGS AND WHY DO I FIND IT HARD TO BE FRIENDS AND WHY CAN'T I DATE ANYONE NOW??  Find out in this episode ;)

Thanks so much for listening, friend!
