This week, I have a nice Q&A session for you. Three really great questions that cover a variety of topics. Some of the content in here is sexually related and there is also plenty of talk about trauma. Be advised.
Doing a pretty straightforward Q&A session this week, with questions about polyamory, how to deal with family issues due to having bipolar disorder, and advice on living with a disability. Thanks for checking out Hardcore Self Help! You can find transcripts of the episode below.
Here are this week’s questions:
My husband and I want to explore polyamory, but how can I get over my anxiety about him liking someone else more than me?
How can I get my family to stop abandoning me due to my bipolar?
What can I do now that my disability prevents me from doing the things that I used to love?
In recent years, the stigma behind discussing anxiety and other mental illnesses has lifted quite a bit. Sure there is room for improvement, but I can’t tell you how much I see anxiety being talked about on social media and in “real life” exchanges. However, I have also noticed that, despite the increase in discussion around anxiety as an issue, there is still a lot of confusion about what anxiety actually means.
