Welcome to Episode 4 of the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast
In this episode, I continue to think about how to ask for help with the shower safety changes that I need, do some physical therapy, and finally pick up the phone and ask for help.
Recap Ep. 3
Recap – last episode was about asking for help. It was hard to record because I didn’t know that’s what I needed to do before I began recording. I figured out while I was on talking about it that so many of my great friends and family would be happy to help, and that all I had to do was ask.
A listener, my only listener at that point, wrote in to say that accepting help builds bonds. It’s one of the Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People. That’s a famous book that I avoided because my Mom owned it. I’m grown up enough to admit that it’s probably got a lot tof good information.
I can’t quit, even if I make bad episodes. Last episode, I said “Dude,” revealing that I am a Californian from the 80s. It’s OK with me to let you know that. “Woe is me,” I meant.
Therapy is hard
They ask you to do the things that are hard for you. I’m putting off using it by working on the podcast.
A good resolution to the last episode was that I called my stepfather to talk about what I needed in the shower, and that was enough to get things moving in the right direction.
