I Don’t Want to Talk About It-Book Review

Atheists in Recovery

Science & Medicine

Welcome to today’s show!

 

In today’s solo episode, I’m sharing a book that has helped me to better understand Depression-especially male depression. In the show, outline 5 takeaways from the book.

 

WHAT WE’LL LEARN

 

  • Here is what I want to spend time highlighting as if we were sitting together having an iced decaf mocha!
  • How you can pass depression on from parent to child like a chain of pain
  • For men, pain is something you should rise above and when we “fail” that is when the shame comes out
  • The difference between overt vs. covert depression
  • How depression leads to numbing the pain with behaviors & addictions
  • Gender differences in how one handles depression
  • The story of David
  • Autobiographical thread throughout the book is riveting and raw especially how Terry Real turned his life around by breaking his own toxic legacy
  • Adina’s PSA to the A.I.R. community
