Description

Sometimes, it's good to hear about the struggles and trials of others, especially if they've come through on the other side. This is such a podcast.

Host Ele Nichols (Artist/Writer/Gender Confusionist) will recount some of their own misadventures and how they made it (or are making it) through.

In this entry, we’re sliding up those scandalous over the knee patent boots, wearing everything that’s too sheer, too short, and too risqué. What is life without leaving some lasting impressions? Yes, some will say you’re just an exhibitionist, but there’s going to be a few who see you and feel your vibe. Who knows, you might just be helping someone else find their confidence. Fasten those garters, stroke those nylons, and strike a pose.  Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, we’re talking about changes, even when things are going well. Why? Because it could be better. Self improvement sometimes means messing a few things up to find something more ideal. I also talk about passion and why I don’t allow myself to sell it out in certain areas anymore. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

EleAMental Podcast No. 82: Personal Jesus In this entry, we’re starting a religion! Following in the path of such great men such as Joseph Smith, L Ron Hubbard, and Alex Jones (He’s kinda like a new conspiracy based religion), we’re conjuring up a brand new belief system to call our own. You might think I’m kidding at this point. To a large degree, yes. However, the concept of faith and belief is interesting. And regardless how stupid and ridiculous the claims are, it’s still a powerful force that people are using to mold and shape our world. It’s that specific result I’m seeking. How do you live your life with reason, compassion, and love, while also believing in some force that drives you and gives you purpose. This will be sure to upset some, but I’m opening up about my new take on the spiritual. So no proselytization here, no trying to convince you of my beliefs. Instead, if you must believe, why not multiple choice? Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, we’re talking about self-worth again. This one is a little bit different. I’m not going to tell you to “Treat yo self” or “You a queen.” Instead, I want to persuade you to be honest with yourself. What do you feel you value is really worth. Do you let other determine it for you? To do think of yourself to highly? Are you good, but could be better. So don’t discard yourself in the clearance bin, but at the same time, are you really the best you can be? Only you can be the judge of that… Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, we’re talking about where I went these past few weeks! A mental health break is never a bad idea. I’m going to talk to you about my anxiety disorder and how it got way out of control. Then the bad things I tried to fix it, followed by the right things I did which actually is working. Nonetheless, I’m doing very well and am ready to push onward.Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.comMusic was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, let’s talk about keeping your therapy in session. When did people start wearing their mental illnesses like medals of honor? It’s become the ultimate excuse for people not to deal with their problems, it’s just “the way they are.” In reality, it’s annoying, it’s rampant, and it needs to stop. So let’s deal with our issues, remember what social curtesy is, and understand proper place and time to share certain information. Who’s ready to get their shit together? Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, we’re talking about being so much yummier. I’ve had a fascination with Catwoman for a long time (Michelle Pfeiffer specifically), I just wasn’t paying attention to the lesson she was trying to teach me. I’ve always seen myself as A Keaton Batman type. Awkward, introverted, brooding, focused, selfless. Now, I’m starting to see that while that is definitely part of me, there’s another. To quote Bruce Wayne to Selina Kyle, “We’re the same…split right down the center.” Like Yin and Yang, I too have a dual nature. One part bat, one part cat, I am contradictory, yet balanced sides. As of late, I’ve felt that nature begin to claw out of me. Forcing me to reevaluate myself and my beliefs. There’s a time to be the silent, watchful guardian, then there’s a time to squeeze into latex and rip out someones intestine with your bare hands. You can try to deny your dark side, but in the end, it finds a way to manifest one way or another. So let’s ask the question “What Would Catwoman Do?” Would she just forgive the people who tried to kill her, let Max Shreck slide for pushing her out a window? Would you? Or do you finally come to understand that forgiveness is not always the answer. It doesn’t always make you better, heal your wounds. And perhaps, just perhaps, all these beliefs and ideologies we accept as being good for us, might just be poison instead. So lets take an honest look at ourselves and ask, “Is forgiveness truly good for the soul, or just good for those who’ve sinned against us?” When you can accept those difficult painful truths, then you might just find real healing. Pour up a glass of ice cold milk and lets scratch through this surface, shall we? Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

In this entry, I talk about my own little form of prostitution. I may not be selling my body, but I’m selling my soul. I feel that’s much worse. Let’s talk about work and how I pay the rent. When it’s come to my main source of income, mum has been the word. Since 2017, I had to start back at a job from my past, working as a Christian TV editor and producer. The content isn’t the kind you see where the lgbtq or liberals are being bashed, but it’s just not my idea of quality content. And it’s draining. Not to mention it opens up a lot of old wounds for me being in that world, even for a very small time each week. So a decision has been made and we’re going to talk about that today. Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.comMusic was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

On this entry, we’re going back to the basics…the sexual basics. Mostly because a sad majority of our population has been miseducated about sex and reproduction, or simply no education whatsoever. We are in a sad state of affairs, rather multiple states. Not only are people not getting the fundamentals of what they can do to protect themselves before, during, and after intercourse, they’re also being punished with life altering consequences because of ignorance. I was fortunate enough to have had sex ed in California when I was in 7th and 8th grades. Had I been in Arkansas still, it would have been Abstinence-Only rhetoric. Lets face it, when 2 teens in the thrust of puberty find willing participants in each other, it’s going to happen. There is not threat, barrier, or chastity belt that will stop them. I had proper sex education in school, but bullshit shame and religious guilt at home. This is about my struggle with this division and how it did me a lot of harm, and many others as well. We also talk about the fact that most people are just doing it wrong. If you think you’re great at sex, chances are, you’re not. Hate to be the barer of bad news, but I’m here to tell you my awkward journey so you can benefit from my humiliation and mistakes. So, what would you little maniacs want to hear first?Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenichols Website: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com Music was provided by Damn The With Siren, featuring the song, “Big Mouth”, and was used with their permission.

On this entry, we talk about Body Dysmorphic Disorder, or BDD. On top of the body dysmorphia I’ve dealt with all my life because of gender, I’ve also inherited BDD from my genetic background. BDD is simply your brain either distorting your self image to be bigger than you actually are, or smaller. It’s vicious and it’s not something you just deal with, you actually need medication and counseling. I talk about my struggles here and give some insight into what happened in 2015 that caused me to retreat from the world.Help Support This Podcast:https://patreon.com/elenicholsWebsite: http://houseofele.comStore/Art: http://eluded.ltdInstagram/Facebook/Twitter: @elenicholsEmail: info@elenichols.com
