    Talk with Tenney: A Conversation with Sarah Knutson

    in Current Events

    April 1, 2015 from 9-10 PM Eastern or a lively conversation with Sarah Knutson.


    For years, activists have been calling attention to psychiatric mystification as an abuse of power. We've opposed the proliferation of DSM confabulated 'mental disorders' as a instruments of industry profit and social control. Yet, for the most part, as a society, we remain confused. What really is going on when someone becomes distressing to themselves or others? Why does this happen? And what could a human rights-informed society attempt to do about it? Beyond this, how do we make change happen? What are we up against? Why is change so hard? And how do we begin to take down the walls that divide us into 'us' and 'them'? As an mad activist, xlawyer, xtherapist, Sarah Knutson has devoted much of her life to making sense of these issues. In this episode, Sarah will draw from both lived experience and social science research to offer an integrated wholistic human perspective that gets us beyond the conventional divide between 'mental health' and 'mental illness.' Sarah will also discuss the challenges inherent in any effort to change conventional human consciousness from the 'tried & true' to the 'radically new.'  Bonus: a conversation about holding your ground with police for activism season!


    Sarah Knutson is a RadMad Didactivist with lived experience as a therapist, lawyer and human rights advocate. Sarah is passionate about creating "positively mad" culture and accessible approaches to mental distress based on shared humanity. She works as a consultant for Intentional Peer Support. Sarah struggles daily to vote with her life for a world she wants to live in. Volunteer activities include organizing around the IPS Learning Community, Peerly-Human Family, Human Rights Recovery and the Wellness-Recovery Human Rights Campaign (more info on facebook.

    Wade Hayes, country singer and advanced colorectal cancer advocate, returns to Ask MomRN Show to discuss his brand new album and song that he is launching for Colon Cancer Awareness Month—“Go Live Your Life.”

The campaign will also give back to the patients who need it most: for every iTunes download of “Go Live Your Life,” a donation of a $1 (up to $50,000) will be made by Genentech to the Colon Cancer Alliance Blue Note Fund, a non-profit that supports advanced colorectal cancer patients.

    Increased Alcoholism Rates Post Gastric Bypass Surgery

    in Lifestyle

    In 2012 a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that reports the percentage of patients abusing alcohol increased from 7.6% to 9.6% two years after gastric bypass surgery - potentially creating 2,000 alcoholics every year in the US.


    There is more than one theory on why this occurs.  Some say it is addiction transfer: a patient switches an addiction to food to an addiction to alcohol.  More recent evidence suggests an anatomical explanation - metabolic and hormonal changes triggered by gastric bypass surgery that leave patients especially vulnerable to alcoholism.  Maybe it is both - or neither?  The truth is nobody is 100% sure of why alcoholism rates increase post surgery.


    If you are struggling with alcoholism post-surgery, however, the reason why may not be as relevant as what to do about it.  There are unique challenges that face people whose alcoholism may be attributed to gastric bypass surgery, and on this episode of the Bubble Hour we will discuss this startling trend.  We will share more information about why experts feel this increased vulnerability to alcoholism occurs, and speak with special guest Jessica about her own experience with gastric bypass surgery, alcoholism and recovery.


    We are also excited to welcome Diane Grimaldi, DNP, PMHCS, BC as a guest on the show and an expert on this issue.


    Diane started her psychotherapy practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1984 after receiving her Masters Degree in Adult Mental Health Nursing from Boston College and becoming a board certified Clinical Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing. 


    In 2014 she received a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.  For more information about Diane and her practice please visit www.grimaldicounseling.com.

    Helo Matzelle debuts newest book Halo Found Hope

    in Lifestyle

    Despite being tested by a terrifying diagnosis, Helo Matzelle clung to faith


    Helo Matzelle thought her relationship with God was as good as it could get. As a busy stay-at-home mom and devoted wife, she would have described her life as beautiful. Then, one Friday afternoon in 2011, her life changed. In her new book, Halo Found Hope: A Memoir shares how her life went from planning ahead for the weekend to relearning basic skills after being diagnosed with a rare brain tumor. 


    Matzelle says when she looks back, she should have paid more attention to the physical symptoms: the strange voices in her head, like she was remembering movie lines. The metallic taste in her mouth. The ringing in her ears. But those symptoms were easily chalked up to the stress of life or the effects of spending too much time in a building with freshly painted walls. However, what started as a routine MRI for her ear revealed Matzelle’s symptoms signaled a more serious problem. “After hearing the terrifying news that I had a golf ball-sized tumor on my brain,


     Matzelle details how her recovery from surgery was only supposed to entail six days in the hospital, but things took a turn for the worse in the operating room. Matzelle’s brain tumor was one in two million: Because of the way it was structured, the removal caused intense brain swelling, and several hours later, she became unresponsive. A portion of all author proceeds from Helo Found Hope will go to the National Brain Tumor Society,
