The number one question I get is always around the brain and nervous system and WHY WHY WHY it somehow feels "safer" to be sick than to feel the darkest of our human emotions. Today we revisit an episode from the Summer Series '22 where we explore just that. We are more than willing to lament to friends that we are "annoyed", "bummed", or "freaked out." But we are less likely to talk about being enraged, grieving, or terrified. This is sometimes because we are embarrassed, but more likely because these feelings operate under the cover of darkness in our subconscious minds. The nervous system feels them though, and chronic illness is a response in the form of protection. So much to understand here, and repetition is key for learning. Let's revisit this important topic, together. Much love! xoxo n.

Today on the pod Lisa and discuss the lessons learned from my move across country. Although the idea for this pod began as a (rageful) PSA on moving companies and the ugly scammy business they are, it quickly evolved into a conversation about why we ignore red flags, allow others to shame us, and...
