EPI 45: Bipolar Author Lynn Rae: You’ll Never Work Full Time Again!
This was something I’d been planning on doing for many months.
I was hesitant, in part, due to the time and frustration involved in the transcription process for each episode.
Our talk was an hour and a half. I knew it would take me forever to finish the transcription for this episode.
So I worked on the transcription for two hours today and only reached the 17 minute mark in the audio.
This is how it’s been for me with these transcriptions. Drudgery, tedium, frustration, months of my life.
I’ve made a command decision to put transcriptions on hold, until I can pay for pros to do it.
The stress I’m enduring and the time I’m losing from creating more work, has made transcription cost prohibitive.
I’m already breathing better for this decision.
Funny thing, I talk a bit abut the importance of transcriptions in the intro to this episode. All true still.
But I think I was trying to motivate myself through an impossible event.
On to Lynn.
Very sweet woman who’s had her battles with bipolar but came out on top.
I enjoyed talking with her. I’ve already learned some things to improve my style. And I’ve figured out the answer to a tech issue that became obvious only after the interview.
Always improving. Never stopping.
This time with Lynn’s help.
Lynn Rae was diagnosed with depression at age 30 and bipolar disorder at age 35. She has been living with these illnesses since 1991 and has had numerous hospitalizations.
Two psychiatrists told her at age 39 she would never work full time again. She has proven them wrong.
She has written two books. The “The F Book” aka “7 F’s to Creating Your Fantastic Future” teaches you how by incorporating these F’s will lead to a happier, healthier, more joy-filled life.
The other one is called “My Journey Back To Myself” which depicts her struggles and recovery from bipolar disorder.
As an Inspirational Speaker she shares with others her coping strategies in living with bipolar disorder and how she learned to be a productive member of society again and thrive despite the label she was given.
