    Our guest this week is Wendi Dunford from The Morning Stream’s Therapy Thursday segment and The Therapy Show! Our discussion topic: venting online - studies have shown that venting online on social media and anonymous sites seem to make us think we feel better, but it’s actually making us angrier! What is it about social media that gives us that dopamine hit that we keep coming back for? How can we be less angry if online interaction is such a part of our lives?

    We slow down a bit and talk about finding balance in life when things are just crazy busy and you’re exhausted by all you have to do. Balance is a moving target, and something that many of us struggle with every day. How do you check yourself when things are moving out of balance before it starts to negatively affect you?

After becoming a new mom in 2016, Dr. Bean is currently creating a postpartum support group to help other new mothers in her area.

    We were also joined by the hosts of Both Sides Now podcast, the unconventional duo, Dr. Shirley and Kellee White!

    Dr. Shirley, Ph.D. is arguably the highest profile Latina psychologist in America. She is a frequent guest expert on TV (The Doctors, Dr. Drew’s On Call, Dr. Drew Celebrity Rehab, VH1’s Hollywood Execs, Bravo’s Work Out) and the author of the bestselling WHY CAN’T I CHANGE?

Her specialties involve her work with trauma, loss, grief counseling, changes and transitions, and fear of death.

    In 2000, Kellee suffered a traumatic brain injury that changed her life forever. Completely confused and not comprehending what was happening, Kellee found herself seeing and talking to “dead people.” To further enhance her ability to help others she returned to graduate school and received her Master’s in Psychology with an emphasis on marriage family therapy.

    Kellee is also Holiday’s mom, and one of her biggest joys is becoming a grandmother last year!

    When did it get to be September? Marconin is prepping for a day at Arkansas Comicon and Jules gives an update about her fitness and nutrition journey so far. Our Think Tank question: In the past year, my father passed away unexpectedly and I married the love of my life. My family, and my mom in particular, have had a difficult time coping with the loss of my dad. However, I’m also deeply in love and happy with my husband, but I feel my expressing love for him on social media or in my mom’s presence is hurting her badly. I want to be there for her and support her, but I also want to feel free about sharing my affection for the man I love. How can I balance this?

    Eclipses, airplanes, conventions, and mounts, oh, my! Our Discussion question: Patience in a world of instant gratification. Our patience, and the ability to be patient, is dwindling in a world of same-day delivery, digital connectivity and being able to get things right here and right now. How can we practice patience in today’s environment of expecting things to be done fast?

    Our special guest is Nicole Du Cane from Heroes of Fitness! Together, Nicole and her husband Tim Spencer make exercise more accessible for gamers through their popular Heroes of Fitness Twitch channel, where they stream games and take regular workout breaks that viewers can follow along with. Our Discussion question: I have gained about 60-70 pounds over the past few years due to a change in medication. I feel ashamed of my body and how exercise just doesn’t seem to get me anywhere. I can barely walk on a treadmill without feeling pain. This isn’t me - this body isn’t me! What can I do?

    Marconin is catching them all and Jules is finding muscles she never knew she had! Our Think Tank question: I realized this week that I’m old. I’ve always thought of myself as 16, and things didn’t bother me, but now the list of things I don’t like is getting longer and my patience is shorter. I’m cynical and tired of watching people make the same mistakes over and over.

    It’s a week of personal changes, goals, and trying new things for Jules and Marconin. Our Think Tank question: My family bonded together over playing Overwatch, but my wife started a relationship outside of our marriage with a man she met through the game. Our marriage is over, but my kids still play the game with my wife, often grouping with her and the man she left me to be with. I can’t help but think if I never brought the game into our family, we’d be together, at least for a bit longer.
