SORT BY Relevancy
Welcome to The Grumpy Gator Cafe' where I serve up a cup-o’ inspirational espresso loaded with the sweetener of cathartic satire for mature audiences. I debunk and remove the mystical bullshit that is perpetuated by the psychological and self-help industries here in ‘Merica: two industries that generally over complicate, over medicate and twist the art of healing into unnatural, your life is not-so-normal is pathological knots.
It is psychology satirically simplified for adults with open minds and souls who actually are interested in getting their head out of their ass and their ass off of the couch for the purpose of living life to its fullest.
Today’s episode looks at gaining authencitity while healing through your natural style. How do you remain sane; while healing the hurts and managing the fears that haunt your life and soul? It's a tightrope walk.
I have traveled to hell and back so often I have frequent flyer miles. I have learned a thing or two while learning how coping with and healing from the bullshit of life and I share my stories via my live radio show that becomes a podcast the minute I sign off. Buckle up and laugh your ass off while healing.

Speak Life Radio ~ The Importance of Mental Health CheckUps
Everyone is familiar with the concept of a periodic medical checkup --- some sort of scheduled doctor's visit to check your blood pressure, weight and other physical benchmarks.
The notion of a regular mental health checkup is less established, perhaps because of the historical stigma about mental illness. But taking periodic stock of your emotional well-being can help identify warning signs of common ailments like depression or anxiety. Such illnesses are highly treatable, especially when they are identified in their early stages, before they get so severe that they precipitate some sort of personal -- and perhaps financial --- crisis.
"Absolutely, people should have a mental health checkup" our guest tonight is Tish Granville a licensed professional clinical counselor employed with Emerge Counseling Services in Akron Ohio. She serves many children, adolescents, adult woman, and couples in an outpatient setting; treating various mental health and relationship issues.
She also is Co/Founder of Center of Holistic and Intergrative Health LLC; a mind - body - spirit wellness organization that focusses on educating individuals in the community on holistic wellness.
Tish is a newly wed who enjoys reading, nature, art, spending time with loved ones and writing. Please join us!!!!!

What is going on???

Are you tired of being confused? A lot of things borther you and cause you to say things you really don't want to say and do things you really don't want to do. Of course, you are tired of spending big money on going to doctors and asking them to solve your probelms. As a matter of fact, you can not develop friendships because the people think you are crazy. Nobody wants to spend to much time with a depressed person who has no knowledge of where they are going and how they are going to get there. Nobody wants to be around people who drag them down in their thinking. It is time for a change. It is time to be in your right mind. It is time to stand up and face yourself and some of your most fearful enemies. Step out of the box of fear and live bountifully and rejoice in the victory of life. Change your thinking pattern and be happy.

There are tons of discussions about feminism but very few black people actually know what it is about. Most have never read a book about it or even understand its history. The word itself has been used as a weapon against black women as a way of insulting them and making them feel as if they are not loyal to the race if they define themselves as feminists. The images of a group of anti male, masculine type, women who are all lesbians, springs to mind whenever the word feminism is brought up. Black women especially, have been conditioned to believe that the mythology around the word feminism makes it something they should refuse to be associated with. They havve bought into the stigmatization of the word itself, wtihout ever having even read one book about it. Black males are even worse, as they will continue to spread lies about this area of activism and any correct information about it is immediately dismissed as being "anti-black". This episode will explore the history of black feminism, how it came about, what it really is and why there is a fear of it. It will serve to inform and dispel the myths associated with black feminism and give one an insight into why it is more vital than ever to ensure that black women and men work to further its aims.
