Why I Reject Self-Care And Embrace My Crazy (And More Overshares)

On this week's episode of Here To Thrive with Kate Snowise, we cover oh, so many (heretofore unexplored, at least by me) subjects - including the relationship between alcohol and working-mom anxiety, the fairly enormous differences between dating in your 20s and dating in your 30s, and the horror show that is "aggressive self-care" (spoiler: you probably do it, too).

Listen here.

On Breakdowns, Breakups, And Breakthroughs: Podcast

I recorded this interview with Leo Flowers for his mental health podcast on the same day that I published the post about my breakup...and to say it got interesting would be an understatement.

He - meaning the host of the podcast - did this. To a woman he was dating. Like, RECENTLY. So I think it's safe to say that I had a few questions to ask him.

Go ahead and give it a listen.

The Mental Illness Happy Hour

So, shocker: It turns out that doing a press tour for a book about anxiety results in QUITE the intense interviews. For my first two books, people asked me about...you know, like, Tips For What To Wear When Pregnant. For this one? "Tell me your deepest childhood traumas and most profoundly held fears."

So...that.

You can listen to my interview on The Mental Illness Happy Hour here; the interview part starts at around 1:10.

Atomic Moms Interview: Anxiety, Divorce, and Falling On Our Faces

A couple of years ago, when The Big Fat Activity Book for Pregnant People came out, I had one of the best interview experiences of my life with Ellie Knaus of Atomic Moms - and so obviously I had to come back while doing press for the new book. In this episode we talk perfectionistic tendencies, anxiety attacks, massive life transitions, and single mom life. Oh, and we swap tales of hitting our absolute most humiliating rock bottoms before we became “recovering actors” (Ellie's term, which I have now adopted as my own).

Oh AND I have real-time, major Life Realizations in this one. Like, on the air, while talking to Ellie. You can hear them. I also get weepy. It's a good time.
