S6E14 - Eric
Eric had a pretty unique and difficult childhood growing up. As you’ll hear, he was always taken care of by his parents, but as the day progressed, there was often alcohol abuse and then some quite disturbing mental illness in his parents would reveal themselves. This was naturally very confusing for a child and led to many of the issues Eric has experienced since then. He’s actually only relatively recently seeked out therapy. We get into all that, we talk about chronic vs. singular trauma, going from a therapy novice to now being very proactive, and some uplifting messages about connecting with others and making yourself heard. Eric reached out some time after the interview wanting to talk a lot more about the specific therapies he has worked with so expect a part 2 episode in the new year.
