A very happy Veteran's Day to all my fellow Vets out there. To all the servicemen and women in boots, I see ya'll. I appreciate y'all and much love. Today, we are going to examine some myths about suicide that I came across while researching for my second book about teens and their unique struggles. It is aptly called A Teen's Life.

10/22/2019

When you are only 24 yrs old and have attempted suicide 3 times (between the ages of 19 and 21yrs) due to chronic depression, feelings of self-loathing, worthlessness and even admitting to a "stress memory block", you have been through worse than most people your age. That was the case with today's guest. She admits to growing up with a negative belief system in a toxic environment that culminated in hopelessness and "many days of simply crying and crying". "There is no look of depression,...

9/17/2019

Y'all, I had SO much fun interviewing Sharon! She is a HOOT! She describes herself as a wife of an Army Veteran, a mother of 2 and a grandmother. I describe her as a warrior, a survivor, a woman with a golden heart, on a mission to give voice to the voiceless and the invisible. With her nonprofit movement, aptly called I AM INVISIBLE (I Am Invisible Bullying and Suicide Movement), she is reaching hearts and breaking barriers and creating awareness for (you guessed it) bullying. Once...

Listening to this episode, one would not believe that Vicki and I just met a few minutes before this recording. We had an awesome time together. Though heavy at times, we still found space to laugh and enjoy the recording, it is obvious that both our passions shine through. She like me, is a firm believer in abolishing bullying. Vicki was inspired to join the anti-bullying fight after watching her son with special needs get bullied in the very worst way, by kids at school. She has been...

Beth's Page; ...Are you feeling like a functionally broken and displaced person? Are you tying your worth to $$?

9/3/2019

Beth Lopez, my first guest of Hispanic ancestry, was such a delight to interview. She calls herself a Universal Soul Coach, a Life Transformer, and CEO of Souls Awakening Academy. Growing up in a religious Hispanic house hold, her parents were very protective and had her life all planned out (who can relate?), and at one point she realized she was "living" her "parents' life". Unfortunately, no matter how loving and protective we parents are, we cannot protect our children from life, and...

Debbie's Page; "Allowing herself to be a victim"

8/27/2019

From a very young age, Debbie knew she was different. She "felt" her bullying was her "fault". She lived in what she calls "victim-hood" from age 8 to age 16 as a result of incessant bullying from the same person as bystanders stood aside, watched, and even cheered on. As a victim, she had never blamed the bully, she always blamed herself. Even after telling her parents and doing some things to change her situation, the bullying continued. Her life was so difficult living as Debbie, that...

With a name like Estelle, one expects a beautiful person, and I was not disappointed. This woman is nothing short of a beautiful soul inside and out. She has the most soothing voice and most calming demeanor. It is extremely hard to reconcile that image with the story of heartache, pain, and self-destruction that she tells. A story so hard to live with that she subconsciously "buries" it deep down in her heart for years. As a pediatrician and mother, some aspects of Estelle's suicide page...
