Mental Health: Bailey and Rick Talk at You: Episode 5

This week Rick and I answer some questions about how we handle me having an anxiety attack in public and whether Rick has ever experienced mental illness, himself. There’s also mention of haunted lightbulbs!

If for any reason the embed doesn’t work, you can watch the video here.

In the video we talk about how we handle situations in public regarding my anxiety, and I thought of another example of me removing myself from a situation where it was appropriate for Rick to stay. A few years ago my parents celebrated their 40th anniversary at a dinner in Florida and I started wiggin’. So, Rick stayed in the restaurant to celebrate and I went and laid in the back of the 15 pass my parents had rented for the trip in the parking lot. Lol.

Mental Health: Bailey and Rick Talk at You: Episode 4

Looks like we made it * Shania voice * I’ve turned in my thesis, and turned into… a vlogger!

This week Rick and I answer some questions about how I presented/how Rick perceived my mental illness while we were dating. There’s also mention of Jerry Springer’s hit show “Baggage!”

Unfortunately the sound is a little wonky, but we’ll try to do better next week! Remember, we have no idea what we’re doing.

Mental Health: Bailey and Rick Talk at You: Episode 3

Oh, look! Another week of me avoiding writing about my potentially problematic relationship with alcohol in tandem with my mental illness during a never-ending quarantine! I’m kidding! Sort of!

THIS week Rick and I talk about our hopes, wishes, and dreams á la Drew Barrymore in the hit movie Never Been Kissed and answer an audience-submitted question! I also took it upon myself to appear as a true trash person, as you’ll soon see. I may have taken my commitment to authenticity a little ~too far~.

Mental Health: Bailey and Rick Talk at You: Episode 2

Greetings from our quarantine couch to yours!

I wish these videos were little podcasts because I know when I see a long YouTube run time I’m like ugh, I don’t wanna sit here watching something for that long. Alas, podcast mics are really expensive and I’d be like that “I have no idea with I’m doing” meme with podcast editing software, anyway.

me making a podcast
me looking at podcast editing software
me after a podcast editing tutorial

Anyway, you get the picture.

So, it’ll just have to be these lo-fi videos for now, but they can definitely be listened to from YouTube- no need to watch us staring back at you. Unless that’s your thing. Then, you’re welcome to stare back at us staring at you staring at us. No, I’m not high.

This week, Rick and I discuss what it’s like for Rick to have a spouse with mental illness and the perils of Greek life in college.

I hope you enjoy it half as much as we enjoyed making it, ’cause that’d be a lot!
