Kitt O’Malley, author of “Balancing Act: Writing Through a Bipolar Life,” is a mental health advocate, public speaker, and former psychotherapist who lives with bipolar disorder. Her personal experience and clinical background inform her advocacy and enable her to help herself and guide others toward mental health recovery.
Over the years, Kitt has struggled with bipolar, experiencing depression so deep that it was a living hell and mania so severe that she was psychotic.
However, there is help. Psychotherapy, medication, and coping skills have enabled her to live a full life.
Acceptance has been key to her mental health recovery. Acceptance is essentially a spiritual experience.
To accept yourself is to love yourself. There is hope.
Carolyn Birrell retired to Bonners Ferry, ID, in 2006, after living in Atlanta, GA, for 20 years where she worked for the American Cancer Society National Headquarters and then as a real estate agent and a new home builder. She began caring for her aging mother shortly after her move and started chronicling her journey.
What began as a written collection of her mother’s difficult behaviors during dementia’s earliest stages quickly turned into a comprehensive book that she continued to update until the inevitable end of her mother’s disease.
In this interview, Carolyn talks about her years long journey with her mother and Alzheimer’s dementia, and how her journals turned into a book.
An estimated 6.2 million Americans aged 65 and older are living with Alzheimer’s dementia in 2021.
Twitter Spaces is an audio medium allowing for a configuration of hosts, speakers, and listeners. This Space was hosted Thursday January 6, 2022, at 2:00pm EST.
If you are familiar with the app “Clubhouse,” you are likely to recognize Twitter Spaces which is very similar. Spotify, LinkedIn, and any number of other social media platforms are also exploring what is being termed as “social audio.”
Currently, the only way to take part in a Twitter Space is via the Twitter smartphone app. If you already have Twitter on your phone you can utilize Twitter Spaces.
In my opinion, for podcasts and as a production tool, the guests sound a bit “phoned-in” on Spaces but otherwise is acceptable. I am not sure how much I will be using Spaces for podcast episodes, but it has potential as a break-through medium. Real-time and trending topics are built into the fabric of Twitter which gives the platform a head-start in the social audio spectrum.
Our guest for this episode was Lenora Colarusso, who has been on the podcast numerous times. The first part of the episode covers Lenora and her journey of recovery and well-being. It is followed by snippets from a Question-and-Answer period that followed on the Space. Guests take part from all over the world, which is one of the great things about the Twitter Spaces format.
