Just want to put that out there because not everybody gets depression the same way and there are different treatments. This is not a show about treating conditions like biochemical depression or some forms of PTSD.

For those conditions you will need the support of medical professionals. This show is more focused on the voice in many people's heads that is hyper-critical. There are some organic, mechanical and mental skills that can help to shut the hater up.

It is more about building a toolkit of resources when the voice is obnoxious. It is about deflating that power to attack you at a vulnerable point.

Sleep paralysis is the inability to move muscles in your body while between completely falling asleep or waking up. In addition to not being able to move you might see people, aliens or beings in your bedroom.

And yes, this is a medical condition. If you have an anxiety disorder you might be prone to having it pop up.

Everybody take a chill, either in a pool, in a theater or in a park; hopefully without an electronic device. We all have anger and if you have an anxiety or panic disorder you might not even know that you are ticked off angry.

Untreated anger can cause all kinds of physical and mental problems. So even if you think this doesn't apply to you give a listen so you will know where to go when the other person invokes a spark or two in you.

This is a mini episode. I am too angry. This is kinda ironic since I intended to do a show about anger and its relationship to anxiety.
