The Nap Bishop
I loved the episode with Tricia Hershey and I’m an avid believer in her message. My reckoning came in October 2021 when I saw how my body was literally aflame with stress and how emotionally reactive I’d become. I got Covid in October and watched feelings of anxiousness rise to levels where I felt passively suicidal around December. That was a feeling I’d never had before. I was watching myself have panic attacks that brought me to and saw it was due to years of overworking, over efforting, and overthinking. It was then I knew I was literally watching my spirit blowing the horn that something needed to change. Tricia’s work has touched me profoundly. There is so much I could share, but I’d much rather rest…
