Replay: Eating Disorders directly related to Anxiety Disorders

Jeni Cain is more than just the owner of an extremely successful boutique in Greenville, SC. Although she is quite impressive with her business acumen and top-notch fashion sense, you will learn from today’s podcast that she can also play the part of therapist and cheerleader, winning you over with her infectious sunny outlook on life. She always says what you didn’t even know you needed to hear. I personally always feel better after our conversations. So it’s no wonder that she is an open book about her struggles with bulimia and anxiety. She is in recovery and openly talks about her journey in order to help others. Behind her smile, there is a depth of strength and experience that I wish I had access to when I was in college and struggled with an eating disorder. But like SUD, no one wanted to discuss it as it was deemed a moral failure or a sickness to be kept secret. If you have teens or young adults, let them listen to this one!

Here are some stats from the South Carolina Department of Mental Health
-Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness
-Anorexia is the 3rd most common chronic illness among adolescents
-95% of those who have eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25
-50% of girls between the ages of 11 and 13 see themselves as overweight
-80% of 13-year-olds have attempted to lose weight
-studies show that about two-thirds of people with eating disorders also suffer from an anxiety disorder

Dr. Arun Gupta on the Preventable Epidemic and ending the Opioid Crisis

Dr. Arun Gupta is an addiction doctor who says he will not retire until we resolve the Opioid Crisis. He believes this crisis could have been avoided altogether if doctors were allowed to properly do their jobs without interference from bureaucrats.
Dr. Gupta sees treating a patient with addiction the same way you would treat a diabetic patient; with compassion, empathy, and using a long-term approach. Using methods such as medically assisted treatment, Dr, Gupta sees people go from rock bottom to living full, productive lives. His book is a best seller and he hopes will get people to listen to his advice so we can turn the tide on the Opioid Crisis and start saving lives.

Bio in his own words:
I am a primary care physician for 34 years. I started learning and practicing addiction medicine in 2006. I have done over 150 presentations trying to educate community physicians and social groups about various aspects of addiction. My primary interest is the lack of access to care for patients with Opioid use disorder or substance use disorder.

Teacher Burnout Part Two with Katie Niemczyk

Katie Niemczyk wanted to be a teacher. In fact, she hoped for a long career teaching in communities where she hoped she would make a difference. The first part of her career was great but she quickly began to see that the education system was flawed and needed an overhaul. She continued to ask for help, hoping to make incremental changes where she could but when Covid hit, she made the choice to leave teaching to take care of her own mental health as well as the physical health of her two small children.

Katie wants people to recognize that teachers have real lives outside of the classroom and the compensation does not equal the emotional demands required for teaching. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a paradigm shift in the education system where we wake up and realize that the most important pieces of the system, our teachers, have reached the breaking point.
