    Impostor Syndrome

    in Lifestyle

    Impostor syndrome is the feeling that you’re a fraud—that you’re somehow less qualified, less deserving of success. There is the fear that you’ll be “found out," which may lead you to attempt to work longer and harder than others. This can be a source of resentment, exhaustion, and a sense of impending doom. While Impostor Syndrome is not solely the domain of alcoholics, many of us report deep attachments to perfectionism and, it's cousin, Impostor Syndrome. Many of us drank over our feelings of resentment and fear arising from the core belief that we were frauds. Now that we are sober, we can bring these fears into the light of truth. When we think, "I'm a fraud," instead of drinking, we ask, "Is that true?" We connect with our recovery communities and see the truth of our own self-worth reflected back at us in the faces of our sober friends. We learn to discard these old patterns of thinking and replace them with healthier, more balanced ones. In recovery, we find freedom from the tyranny of Impostor Syndrome.

    Ted Chabasinski - The Barbarity of Electric Shock Treatments on Children

    in Politics Progressive

    Ted Chabasinski  is an attorney and human rights activist in Berkeley, California.  In 1944, as a 6-year-old boy so intellectually gifted he jumped from first grade to third he was taken from his home in the Bronx to New York’s Bellevue Hospital where he was pronounced “schizophrenic”, because his mother had been labelled “schizophrenic”. There he began a series of 20 electro-convulsive shock treatments. The boy, Ted Chabasinski, was one of hundreds of children used in ECT experiments. Tests since condemned as barbaric. He remained an inmate in a state psychiatric hospital until the age of seventeen. Chabasinski survived and became active in the civil rights movement and ultimately an attorney.


    Ted has organized an International Day of Protest  Against Shock Treatment, being held on May 16, 2015. There will be demonstrations in many countries and cities around the world.

    Tonight on Mad U - Getting Our Acts Together - Uniting Against Shock on May 16th, Creating Effective Collective Action. - To listen, call: (267) 521-0167 (press 1 or *1 to talk)  This Saturday, May 16th 2015, survivors around the world will unite to ban the use of electro-convulsive shock (ECT) as a mental health 'treatment.' The May 16th action involves 30 sites from 9 countries and 12 States in the U.S. In this episode, we take an up close look at the protest itself - what will happen at various locations, how to participate, what to expect if you attend. We'll also talk about direct action and what goes into organizing effective collective action.


    An estimated 100,000 people still receive this brain-damaging procedure in the United States alone even though research shows ECT is no more effective than placebo. For further reading:

    The Power of Metal: Setting the record straight with Toxic Radio!

    in Self Help

    What do you do if you don't like something? Complain about it to friends and online? Give up and do something else?


    Not Toxic Radio. In a market flooded with trendy, commercial radio stations and over-priced satelite radio, they chose to take the bull by the horns and create something for fans of real music, played by real DJs on real radio!


    Rock and Spectre are no strangers to the music scene, with many years experience rocking crowds of all sizes, so you can expect this to be a trip down memory lane, geeking out over our favorite bands, sharing ugly (and sometimes disturbing) stories from the road, but most of all learning from Toxic Radio what it takes to create an honest new brand and give the finger to conformity!


    Check out Toxic Radio in the meantime at toxicradio.net!

    Do African American Women Have Stockholm Syndrome ? (347-855-8802)

    in Social Networking

    Tonight on "Living Off The Grid Radio" Mr. Charles Tyler and guess shall be asking the question:


    "Do African American Women Suffer From Stockholm Syndrome ?"


    The demographic is not limited to black women, but to women across the board.


    Stockholm Syndrome (as in relationship to our show tonight) is when an abused woman feels and expresses positive feelings  towards the person who abuses them..........even to the point of defending them. 


    The fact that (some NOT ALL) black women "could" have Stockholm Syndrome explain why many women do not like "nice guys" ?

    Cancer in Families - Lynch Syndrome

    in Health

    Joyce and Mike speak with Georgia Hurst as part of Lynch Syndrome Awareness Week.


    Georgia Hurst is a patient advocate for those with Lynch syndrome. She is the founder of the website and blog: <a href="http://ihavelynchsyndrome.com">ihavelynchsyndrome.com</a>. She frequently writes about the emotional aspects of having Lynch syndrome, and writes for various websites and journals in order to create awareness amongst the global medical community about this hereditary cancer syndrome. Georgia is a wife and mother, and loves espresso, books, and being bossed around by her adorable dog named Sid.


    What is Lynch syndrome?  We will learn more from Georgia, or you can read about it on her website, or in this article from <a href="http://http://www.curetoday.com/community/georgia-hurst/2015/02/i-have-lynch-syndrome">www.curetoday.com</a>


    Georgia noticed that there were several people in her family who had cancer at early ages, and several with the same cancer.  This can indicate that there is something genetic predisposing family members to cancer.  She delved deeper, got to a diagnosis, and kept asking questions, finding out how to protect herself and others in her family from the worst consequences of this condition.


    Hear her remarkable story, the path she followed in doing her own research, and the partnerships she has developed with medical professionals to help her make progress for herself and others.
