    Creative and mentally ill? NFTs might be for you / Matching your "best self" with your best moments

    Creative and mentally ill? NFTs might be for you / Matching your "best self" with your best moments

    John Emotions talks about how NFTs might be a great way for creative people with mental illnesses to escape the misery of day jobs, and how to set up an account using the Coinbase/Coin Wallet apps, Ethereum, and OpenSea. Then he talks about how difficult it can be for people with mental disorders to be their "best self" at exactly the moment social interactions call for it, and how this disconnect can create distressing patterns of isolation. G-Shock seemed worried that people stop leaving reviews after he showed up. John is taking a break from social media until the holidays. Please email john@emodojo.com, or call 1-405-44-3330

Unmediated even though is says he should be

Listening to Johnny is confusing he jumps around topic to topic and makes little sense .... his unwelcoming demeanor has made this once enjoyable show actually sound like a cry for help. This is why we need health care, so people like this “host” can get the help they truly need.

Don’t put yourself in a place to help people if you are in a place where you cannot even help your self. Don’t be proud to be pharmaceutical free when you desperately need them. No shame in the medicine game take it if you need it. Stability is what’s important. Not cutting down a fellow human simply because they get offers to assist when you do not.

I recommend mindful bipolar, bipolar family, or that b ward. Educated “Suffers”- and they want to help! This isn't out of spite, I quit the show because it wasn’t heathy to work with someone unstable, I want to work with someone whose motivated to take control over their lives and stand up and say “I will help you!”, when A lister is in need. Someone not afraid to answer a crying mothers phone call begging for insight of this disorder. Simply put, this is no longer a place for help and healed.

Very new listener

Just recently decided to dive into finding podcasts I could relate to and this has been super beneficial in helping me feel like I’m not alone in the many layers of how I feel on the daily!
