It’s been a while folks. Thanks for sticking with the show and checking on me, but I’m back after a short hiatus. I was able to overcome Guillain-Barré syndrome and get my dancing legs back.

He owns our newest sponsor El Catrin Barber-Shave Parlor located in Carrollton, TX; schedule an appointment today by calling (972) 416-7828. Alex takes us on a deep dive on what it was like being part of the Marines during 9/11 and the road that led him to opening up his own business. We talk about the struggles Veterans have and the way Alex was able to transition. Like, share, subscribe, and as always remember to #FeedYourMentalHealth.

Ep 45: René the Broken: Part 2 of my Hospitalization

My official diagnosis was Guillain-Barré and this episode discusses what that means. I also talk about the how I learned to walk again, and I can’t confirm or deny it was due to the frustration of “advocating for my self”.  If you’re an occupational or physical therapist, I will always love you.

Ep 43: Boundaries 101

Click here to download!

Boundaries is a topic that comes out often in both my personal life and private practice. It’s not something we have a class about, but its something that could possibly save our lives. They can come in different types such as rigid or loose, but the goal is to set heathy and appropriate boundaries so that we can continue to grow in an empowering way.
