Hi, friends! This is the first episode with Joelle on in the new year. A LOT has happened since she was last on the show. We get cozy on the couch and talk about everything from voluntary hospitalization to the journey of finding a psychiatrist.
Episode 99, guys! Next week is big 100. I’ll be doing something a bit different for that episode, so make sure you tune in for that one. This week is my first interview of the year. In this episode, I talk to Erez Shek about his experiences with bullying, bipolar, being a gay man, hospitalization, and social media. It was a great conversation!
Hello, friends! Thanks for joining me again for another Q&A episode. I will be switching my release day from Wednesday to Thursday each week, just to fit better with my life and keep myself sane. Here are the questions for this week:
Very special episode this week for you! I’ve been meaning to get my wife on the show for a good while now. This is the first time that I’ve ever interviewed her about her experiences with mental illness. I have talked about her in my TEDx talk and my books, so this was a really nice opportunity to sit down for a while and just chat about her life. We talk about what it’s like being married to me, her earliest anxiety experiences, motherhood, her hospitalization, and things that have helped her progress in her mental health journey.
Hello, friends. Thanks for joining me again for another question and answer episode. Wanted to let you know that I’ve been doing instagram stories over at http://instagram.com/duffthepsych. Check them out if you would like a little snapshot into my day to day life as a psychologist/dad/entrepreneur etc.
Here are the questions covered in this episode:
I have anxiety caused by Graves disease. I’d like to get anxiety medication to help, but I’m not sure how to talk to my doctor about it. How can I bring it up?
My father killed himself and I want to get therapy, but I’m afraid that I’ll be hospitalized. Should I bother?
Robert, how do you get so much done when I can hardly find a single moment to myself?
