NEW to MHNR Network: The Funky Brain Podcast Hosted by Dennis Berry Guiding You Toward a Better, Sober Life!

Using the ancient proverb, “When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. When is the second-best time to plant a tree? Today.” Dennis Berry and The Funky Brain Podcast is here to help show that no matter how far into the abyss you appear to be, there is always a way out.

“It’s about growing up. Looking the world in the eye. Facing all of the challenges that life throws at you head-on. There is always a solution and as long as you’re sober, you have a chance to tackle any problem at any given time.” – Dennis Berry

Dennis came to podcasting as a way to provide information and help to more people and take his life coaching to the next level. Dennis brings with him 18 years of sobriety and an overall entertaining way of approaching life, addiction, and mental health. He is able to gain insight from speaking to people from all walks of life and around the world to not only help his listeners but also use what he learns and apply it within his business as well.

Dennis looks for engaging guests of all types, from professional athletes and Emmy award-winning entertainers to mental health professionals, in order to provide unique, inspiring, and motivational stories for his listeners. Dennis helps his listeners understand that there ARE solutions if you keep an open mind and learn to ask for help. He provides episodes to help with all aspects of life: mental health, addiction, relationships, life mastery, and financial problems to name a few.

Having lived an exciting and decadent lifestyle in his younger years, the ‘fun’ and ‘excitement’ eventually led to pain and suffering. After 15 years of substance abuse, Dennis reached that point he says is referred to as “the gift of desperation,” when he was finally in enough pain to listen to others and begin to make some changes in his life. He was not only financially bankrupt, but physically, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt as well. He had hit rock bottom. He spent 30 days in a Colorado rehab facility, learning to understand addiction and about the types of solutions needed to make true change and get his life back on the right path.

Dennis realized early on that sobriety requires changes in all areas of life, and began changing his friends, diet, hangouts, and interests. Some changes were made immediately, some over a period of time, and some changed without the conscious decision to do so. Dennis points out that the longer you stay sober, the more life will unfold for you. Since becoming sober, he’s become an athlete, family man, author, public speaker, business owner, and mentor to thousands of people, something he would have never thought possible.

Anniversary Emotions and Illnesses Part 2 with Dr. Paul Meier

Join Dr. Paul Meier and Kristin for the second episode of anniversary emotions.

Notes from Dr. Paul Meier: NORMAL BRIEF GRIEF.

My father died many years ago and I was with him when he died talking to him and it was a wonderful experience even though sad to lose him. I have dealt with it well I believe. One Christmas Day a few years after his death, I was excited to go wake up our young kids to open presents and have an exciting day together, but then I felt suddenly sad for no apparent reason and couldn’t figure out why. I went into a room by myself and prayed for insight and immediately became aware that my parents always came at Christmas mornings to open presents with us. My Mom was still alive and would be there soon, but my Dad wouldn’t and I missed him. I actually encouraged myself to cry and did so for about two minutes and prayed that God would send an angel to give him a hug up in heaven and tell him we love him and miss him today. God would never say no to a request like that. Then I felt great again, having become aware of the reason and dealt with it. Feeling temporary brief dysthymia is not always a bad thing. It was a good thing in that circumstance and it might be for you in our listening family too.

REGRESSION = Lots of my clients who I have seen for med checks but brief therapy once every few months for 10-15 years have done great that long, but we all still have a tendency to REGRESS to some extent to seeing life and ourselves and our roles like we saw them in childhood when we visit parents and sibs on the holidays or other events (weddings, etc.) and then are surprised we may feel worse temporarily after the holiday and not even know why. I warn my clients as I see them in Nov and Dec to watch out for that and I explain this to them. That way they catch themselves and avoid it, or sometimes need to avoid obnoxious parents who are always verbally abusive. To feel guilty for staying out of contact or limiting contact with chronically abusive parents is false guilt. We should feel guilty if we subject ourselves and our families to that instead. “Honoring your father and mother” in the Bible doesn’t mean letting them dominate or abuse you. It might mean having no contact with them but pitching in financially with other sibs to help pay for a nursing home when they are old, or it may involve doing nothing but avoiding or assisting them altogether.
PTSD SYMPTOMS MAY OCCUR ANNUALLY EVEN WHEN GONE THE REST OF THE TIME. If there is a past traumatic event of any kind or even strong regret that has not been adequately dealt with, each year near that anniversary date any person might experience more anxiety and sadness and not know why. Even nightmares that are difficult to understand, or more sensitivity. A person MIGHT be aware of what it is and feel bad each year or MIGHT NOT even be aware of what it is. For example, people who believe abortion is OK for personal reasons often feel sad annually at the time it occurred, often unconsciously, and may even look around at kids of the age that child would be had he or she been born and have conscious or unconscious regrets or guilt feelings. This is part of what is known psychiatrically as POST-ABORTION SYNDROME.

UNRESOLVED GRIEF. Anniversaries of major losses, like death of a child or significant other. Broken relationships. Divorce is often more traumatic than the death of a beloved mate. It is a rude awakening that the mate was not who you thought he or she really was. It is a willful rejection of you rather than an unexpected death.

As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that our system for treating substance use disorder is in need of a major overhaul.
