This is so bittersweet! We have enjoyed recording episodes of the Deal With It podcast oh so very much and we are sad to say goodbye. It comes with heavy hearts that we announce that this is officially the last episode. But what an amazing run it has been! We are so grateful for all the amazing listeners, guests and honest and open discussions about mental and physical health conditions we have shared over the last year and a half. We hope this podcast episode answers any questions you may have about our decision. We know it’s been a while since we have recorded and we wanted to fill everyone in. Please stay in touch and know that Joleen and Andy are here for you always! WE LOVE YOU ALL!

Ep 15: Mental Health, Addiction, Roofies, Anxiety, with Lara Beitz

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in episodes

Lara Beitz shares her experiences with Mental health and addiction. We talk manic episodes, stigmas, misconceptions and the importance of sharing our stories to help others. We also talk about the importance of being open and honest with your doctor and how cool it would’ve been to have someone with bipolar disorder to look up to at a younger age. In the second half of the episode, Lara shares her experience being roofied at a comedy show. It was a surprising and perplexing event that had many levels of impact. My favorite line from the podcast is probably “Let me be clear. I have a rad life.” Lara shares how far she has come and we agree, that she is a role model. Also in this episode, Andy and Joleen share their current workout routines.

Memorable Moments:

“For my diet, I’m going to stop eating Starbursts for dinner.”

“I mean I climbed a water tower.”

“Tip of the iceberg gentleman!”

“I want to be clear. I have a rad life.”

“Yes I sent a letter to his mom. Jan should know how I feel.”
