*Explicit Content -- Curse Words*

Matt, a local musician, artist and advocate, is chatting with me today about how the word "sensitive" is associated differently between men and women.  For women, being sensitive is normal, but for men, it is perceived as "weakness."  I want to bury that mindset and rebuild an accepting culture that allows men to express emotions in a healthy way!

Join us for this really interesting conversation :D

Chronic pain is a common aftereffect of sexual trauma and abuse, specifically fibromyalgia.  Fibromyalgia is directly linked to sexual assault and rape, and outside of pharmaceuticals, there isn't much guidance as to how to manage it.  Until now...

Trigger Warning... Suicide

.

.

.

Brandon Caserta was a Navy Service Member who was abused, harassed, hazed and tormented until he felt completely out of options.  He unfortunately committed suicide, and asked his parents to get justice for him and the others who were experiencing the day-to-day harassment that he was subjected to.

Teri and Patrick Caserta, his parents, are working to push The Brandon Act through Congress, giving service members a confidential, and safe opportunity to talk about what they're dealing with and receive the help that they need.

Please feel inclined to protect those who are protecting us, whether you support the military or not.  Please call your State Representatives and tell them that you want them to Support the Brandon Act!

"He was able to get a masters degree and stay in his uniform on active duty until he was able to retire, meanwhile I, on the other hand, had my entire life dismantled and basically was told to put it back together."

The treatment of survivors of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment in the military is abysmal.  Traci explains the courage and strength it takes to report sexual harassment in the military.  Nobody had her back, but she prevailed. 

"Reach Out. Manage Your Expectations.  Reach out.  We believe you."

Traci's Nonprofit: Which Narrative: TBA

Brian Morelli, musician, radio DJ, and my favorite person in the world, speaks with us today about how music can be a GREAT healing tool!  

 

Music speaks to us, makes us feel heard and gives us something to relate to, to help us understand and process what we're feeling!  To encourage using music to help you heal, I've created a Spotify playlist filled with songs about abuse and assault, and also empowerment.  We are a community unified in our trauma.  Feel free to download the playlist, and if you have any recommendations of songs to add, that help you, feel free to send me a message here.
