Consuela'a Page: What Depression is REALLY Like
Today, she is a licensed clinical social worker, addiction specialist and a certification supervisor. But, she wasn't always that. Once upon a time, she was a woman with a broken heart. A mother who was unable to get up from her bed for over one week. A warrior who finally decided enough is enough and she would get help! Like me, and many of us who have struggled with suicidal ideatios, she was driving on the road one day and found herself wanting to drive off and end it all... with her children in the car! She admits to compartmentalizing her feelings and emotions, something many of us do... She also admits to using "retail therapy" to cope with her circumstances, much like many of us do... And lastly, just like me, she also has a podcast called: The Daily Calm Project, a podcast that explores literally work. Find out what she said that brought out the waterworks and how she navigated herself out of it.

Covid-19 Dr. Chronicles, Dr. Ball's Page: When Doctors Have Human Experiences
This week's first guest, in the person of Dr. Ball is another Black girl who rocks! In honor of the international day of the girl child that was on 10/11/2020, I am featuring two Black girls who rock, and she is one of them! She talks candidly as one of the 19 physicians I interviewed for my Covid-19 Doctor Chronicles about a serious family health crisis in her own mother during the lockdown and the stress of dealing with that. Describing herself as an extroverted-introvert, she shares about the need for "adapting", "pivoting", and "camelionizing", as ways to beat this new normal of a pandemic. Focusing on family and togetherness and the need to be each other's keepers, she endorses the role of technology in all of it, and is happy to state that physicians more than any other time, need to be each others' keepers and have multiple streams of income. Quotables "We complain so much about being indoors, but, there are homeless people out there who are simply too happy to just be alive" To reach the good doctor, go to www.oncallmobilemedical.com OR call (704) 747-2262 Remember to check out our social media pages and follow us: IG and Facebook: @AskDoctorLulu, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Covid-19 Doctor Chronicles: Dr. Yashika and Dr. Kay
Dear Listeners, This is a special episode of Suicide Pages. One of two this week. Both dedicated to physician wellness during this pandemic. Just last week another physician lost his life to suicide, bringing the number to about 13 so far that I have become aware during this time! It is the year 2020 and physicians still have the highest rates of suicides in the United States, to the tune of about 1.1 per day or 400 per year! This and the next several episodes are dedicated to doctors. The idea to do it was borne out of sheer desperation on my part and a perceived need to highlight physicians' lives and struggles during the pandemic. I felt pulled to interview them following the suicide of Dr. Lorna Breen earlier this year in the heart of the lockdown. This week's guests are Drs. Yashika Dooley-Chang and Katherine Igah-Phillips, the original idea was to interview 19 doctors for the Covid - 19... :) Y'all, please find these fine ladies and support and follow them. And continue to share this podcast, and thank you for the reviews! Dr. L --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/uchenna-lizmay-umeh/support
