"Externally, I haven't changed much - I'm always going to be a possum in goth makeup - but internally I'm very different than just a few years ago and learning these coping skills is a lot of it."
This week, Laura and Orphne sit down and discuss how people process difficult emotions and conflicts, and talk particularly about processing through externalizing problems and working through them with others (partners, friends, therapists) versus working through them internally or with physical coping mechanisms.
Just as last time she was on, Orphne can't promote her personal projects because of her job, but she has a charity she'd like to make you aware of if you enjoyed the episode. If you're so moved, please visit http://ripmedicaldebt.org and make a donation, because getting rid of medical debt is punk AF.
