I put this episode on on my way to work this morning, and was crying by the first stoplight. By the time it was over I had to pull over to collect myself. To be fair, you did warn me 🙂
I’m so sorry things are hard right now, and it sucks not to even have a concrete reason why life suddenly became difficult.
While your experience is uniquely your own, it echoes many of the things I’ve also been through. It’s hard to deal with your actual feelings when you also have voices in your head saying that your feelings are terrible; that you have no right to feel that way. Because now you have shame to untangle before you can deal with your actual feelings. It’s the worst, and I’m full of sympathy for you.
Thank you for saying everything you said, and for posting it. I don’t know you (except through your wonderful podcast), but I’m thinking about you today.
Callie, I’m so sorry you’ve had a few very rough days.
I’m new to the atheist community and have only started listening to a your podcasts recently. This episode really struck a chord with me. I too was crying…throughout. Thank you so much for sharing.
It takes so much courage to speak up about this. And it takes so much strength to do so, especially when you’re already feeling sapped of energy! Again I’m so grateful you shared. Hang in there. Know you’re not alone in feeling this way.
