I enjoyed this episode and it makes sense to me logically. However, when someone has a C-PTSD reaction, their body seems to react against the mind and without ‘listening’ to the mind. I can logically think that I’m not in danger and it’s just my mind, but my body still shakes and I experience cognitive dissonance. Trauma seems to affect us on a cellular level. It’s like another layer of survival ... maybe the body has decided that the mind can’t be trusted.

baby talk to some older people before you do a podcast about getting old. at 65 I'm not worried about phuckable I'm worried about getting around. I'm worried about all the people around me getting cancer and dying. I'm worried about being the next one up for death after my family members have died. I'm probably still phuckable although I have no desire to do that at this point. chronic pain and fear of disability is much closer to forward in my mind then is f*** ability

What do you think about mental and emotional abuse? How much of it is something to be resolved externally vs controlling our own thoughts, emotions and reactions to another people?

Getting to the point where it feels like nothing new is being said. And host is far too engrained in her own belief she’s got it all down pat... #boring
