Powerful, inspring, personal
First, let me say, Sheila Hamilton has a terrific voice and is a great interviewer. She is curious and makes space for her guests but also tells some of her own experience. The guests and topics are varied and I seem to find something helpful in each episode. HIghly recommended for anyone who is struggling or simply wants to know themselves and those around them better.
But please examine your attitudes toward psych meds and those of us who need them to live full and healthy lives. We get enough shame from society in general and don’t need to hear it from therapists. I just can’t listen anymore. Too hurtful.
