The Spin Cycle–Episode 049
This is absolutely one of our favorite episodes we’ve ever recorded because we are joined by our friend and fellow mental health advocate Gabe Howard, host of the podcast Inside Mental Health. Having suffered from bipolar disorder since he was a child, Gabe definitely walks the walk. He understands what it is like to live with persistent mental illness and also how to manage it and live well anyway. Gabe does not sugar-coat anything–he tells it like it is and we love him for it. Do not miss this informative and often hysterical conversation.

Loved this podcast. My Psychiatrist tells me im not bipolar because i Don’t have manic episodes. I really believe im Bipolar 2. I recently started a med, lamictal that i can tell has helped me. I’m currently taking 100mg for almost 2 weeks. I also take 200 mg Zoloft as well as 15 mg Remron.
I’m better but still not where i need to be. I learned a lot today from Your Talk with Gabe. Thanks for sharing!
