Met with Paul Gilmartin, host of Mental Illness Happy Hour

In my trip to Los Angeles to visit my son, I had reached out to Paul Gilmartin, host of the popular podcast, Mental Illness Happy Hour. Initially, I was interested in being a guest. I still am, however, Paul was booked out for the next few months so he asked if I wanted to get together for lunch. So that’s what we did.

Paul starred in a show called Dinner and a Movie and did a lot of comedy before hosting the his popular podcast.

Each of us shared our stories. He has suffered from mental illness and addiction and has been in recovery for sixteen years. He described how lonely he was when he was at the top of his game. We don’t think of those who have achieved success as being lonely or hurting.

For anyone suffering mental illness, his podcast is a must subscribe. On my next trip to LA, he’ll see if I can record a show with him. He does them only in person.

    1. I love hearing from you, Debbie and if I make a trip to the UK, I am going to reach out to you. I did read a good book called ‘Smashing Mindset: Train your Brain to Reboot Recharge Reinvent Your Life.’ I think it might help. But again, I love that you check back in from time to time to let me know how you are doing. Mixed bag is better than where you were before and I know your son is grateful for that. I know I am.
