E103 – With the stress of being a busy mom of three, and the isolation of living solo especially during shutdown, we talk quite a bit about our anxiety and depression. This is a re-airing of a livestream event hosted by the Victims & Villains podcast. We were honored to be given an hour during the 24hr awareness-athon during which we talked about mental health, parenting, genetics, lifestyle, and what has worked for us to get through tough times. We go over antidepressant medication and anxiety-reducing tactics, talk about suicide trends, fatigue, and finding purpose. In this episode, we also laugh a lot (Weens falls off her chair right off the bat!), we talk a bit about Glow, Marc Maron, Love Fraud, and trivia questions (email your answers to win swag!).The stories continue with nose and boobie punching, women’s football team tryouts, Survivor auditions, stunt driving school, and starring in the Sega Fighting Vipers video game. Why does the pierced nose logo look so familiar?! And the fun highlight – we watch our avatar selves wrestle other podcasting women in the Cretin’s Guild Championship Tournament via their WWE 2K19 video game! How far does Mouse make it in the rounds? How about Weens? Do we get crowned Champion? How ’bout those outfits? For visuals, watch on our YouTube channel or the original on Cretin’s Guild YouTube.

00:00:05 - 00:05:02
Hello this is Joelle from the Mouse and Weens podcast. I'm Mouse. We are doing a special re-release of a livestream from the Victims & Villains podcast for their Awareness-athon. That was a couple of weeks ago but it was a fun talk we wanted you guys to hear it. You can also watch this on YouTube posted on our YouTube channel. We had a huge audio mishap in the beginning that I ended up remixing into a song. But you do have to see the video for this because. It was hilarious. Julianne fell off her chair. Just be sure to go to YouTube after you listen to this here, okay? All right. Here we go.
Is that any better? Hey everybody! Let's try that again. I'm Mouse. I'm Joelle. I'm the mom one down in San Diego. I'm Weens and I'm also in San Diego right now. I'm normally up in LA in the film business but we're here instead. And I just fell off a chair. I hope no one saw that. I think you did it gracefully. You just fell backwards. She's wearing a fur coat folks. This is the fur coat. That is my sister's closet. Sometimes it gets chilly back here in our recording room. She also has a Larry King trenchcoat. I know! Larry King. See here's the trenchcoat. This is what normally comes out when we're recording and it's cold. He passed away today. So I've done that with glasses on and and I got called Larry King so. But here we are. This is great.
Okay so what's happening? Let's talk about stuff. All right so you wanna tell me about I guess mental health? How are you doing in these covid days? You're pretty okay. I'm doing okay. I'm really busy. I have three kids so they keep me running around. And I'm... I don't know Life is businesses usual kind of. I guess it means I'm an introvert.
Oh no! Sorry to cut you off, but Phil Rood just saw me drop out of frame. He was on! Oh Phil, don't hold it against me. Oh it happens all the time. It's okay. She's our slapstick comedy part of the family. That was so... I was saying... I even came in and go, "I'm going to wear your graceful coat." I wanted to look like, sort of like Lady Gaga. I put it on. Look at this. And I was going to be really graceful and I said I might even carry myself like this and go, "Oh interesting. Interesting question. And what happened?" It doesn't work. never read. We're talking about cohen. And we're glad you guys are here to because being introverted has its benefits. I realized like you can really hunker down and get stuff done and fun with friends and zoom and stuff like this. I don't know if we would have ever figured out how to do this. So cool. and then We've got our good pals at Victims and Villains. I know this we were able to do an episode with them. So thank you josh for hosting if you want to go back to their catalog look up the movie Rebecca and we did a review of that with them which was really fun and it was. It's good to be part of the podcast community. I have to say this is like the best. I dunno hobby job. Whatever we want to call it to have during covid because it's very busy very busy. My sister's been very stressed out now. She has a nice life. she's been doing okay in this covid time but She's been very stressed about all this podcasting. Now you guys. This is serious work. it's the lie you know. I've turned into audio file. I've noticed like good sound versus bad sound and I wanna make it good now like before we were just there a phone out in record and now like i take time. I've learned how to edit and all that near busy with school so you aren't doing as much editing anymore. So little more has fallen on the Mouse's lap. It's okay it's okay. I like it. It's it's pushing me to balance family and podcasting so good I I'm doing okay. But yeah I do wonder if I should hire an editor here and there if I should get someone to do social media. I'm trying to talk my sixteen year old into getting interested in this but he thinks that mom is a dork.
00:05:02 - 00:10:00
I don't know why says unfairly. Hey look; ladygreenthumbsboss. I can barely read. Oh my god. I know. We can get out our glasses. I have extra reading blanket. Don't it doesn't work for me. You guys are also young. All your whole twitchy kids out there. But they know Pink Floyd. Because I saw something about Pink Floyd so you guys are cool. That's so there you go. How's my mental health. You ask yes not as good. I was getting their tummy about covid times for your house your mental health. I think it's starting to slip folks. It's officially starting to go south. Now explain your situation for those. That don't know us your up in la. I'm up in la. But I live by myself. She if you want. It's been lonely lately now where it's so covidy where we are so much. So everybody's super lockdown and they're telling you not to do anything so even morning hikes with my few friends even the world save. They're telling us. Just stay home and trying to do the right thing. But then you start to go a little wacky. My cat can only talk so much until her voice gets hoarse. She's got a whiskey voice. She meows and goes 'rowr'. Sounds like 'Bette Davis Eyes.' So so. Yeah I mean at some point. I don't know if anyone else out their lives by themselves and as in super lockdown right now. But I don't know there's a light at the end of the tunnel. This is the nice thing vaccine. Certain a rollout. We are somewhere in the line to get them being somewhat related to the healthcare field. I used mouthwash. Can you tell visit. Okay she has a rotting tooth. It's not i just went to. The dentist was going good so hopefully once the vaccine. Start getting into people than we can start of things up right. Yeah oh phil says. He couldn't hike at the beginning of coat. See it takes away some to not be able to go into nature. I think that is the biggest cure. i do. think you a rhyme have time Yeah my kids. I think are really suffering from not having exercise or p. e. or going out as much and seeing friends i mean it's they really have leaned into this whole video game world hardcore and tv and movies and they're turning white. They're getting pasty and basement. Trolley no-fence tony. Basement trolls out there as a mom. It's kind of like. I have to force my kids to go outside and get sunshine vitamin d. Do you guys related at the vitamin d. Because i went night my face in the sun and he said oh this is it really does lift the spirits for ten minutes of that but then you think about this adds up and in really snowy areas right now in seattle washington fails of those light. Therapy things are going right now. The high spectrum ultra spectrum light said. Think erect sit erect. It's always awkward word to throw out there so quickly. Yeah okay. I want to read some of these two so indeed. A lot of work Yeah so you guys relate to that. It's I think going to be great. The schools are starting to open up here in san diego in a couple of weeks in the kids back at first i was like. Let's just wait it out. Let's stay home. Be virtual but now. I'm kinda seeing how introverted my kids are turning in like not having interest in anything anymore. My socks Yeah my soccer kids used to be all about you. His buddies and soccer going out and running around and now he's just like on. The couch with human beings need interaction. I thought i was way more of an introvert than i actually am. Because i said oh i have all this free time. I'm going to write off. I'm going to finally finish some of my projects. And then i realized just too much alone time. You need people. I think to to feed off the energy. It's very nice to be here with the right now and with you right now. She has amazing breath. Guys would have no idea beautiful lititz well so part of the reason we did this. Podcast is to provide that feeling of friendship for people we wanted. Just people to talk and be in your ears. That's kind of why. I got into podcasting. Because when i was a new mom and i didn't know anybody in this town i Found podcasts. And i really got interested in people's life stories and the almost became like my friends know weird way and i love that feeling of connection. Even if it's audio. But so. I like the at least with the podcast. We can kind of provide that for you. Hey and call us guys. We have a phone number two and you can leave voicemails get up.
00:10:00 - 00:15:01
It actually rings on my Oh this is exciting. Yeah why do you want the phone numbers. We type it in here. Tape it in the chat and then our good friend so you guys six. I love this for. We're friends in your ears as you said thank you. We love you guys thanks. It's we really do want to be a resource for people so if anyone does want to ever reach out to us and just have a friend talk to we We left that. You know what's interesting. I just read a little bit. Can i talk about suicide. Ooh sorry guys. But i read a little and it was japan at the start of covid just wondering because someone had posted a statistic that two hundred percent up suicide rates. But i don't think that that's it. Seemed to be a lot of inconclusive. Evidence except japan had a fourteen percent decline in suicide rates at the beginning of the pandemic from like march in four months and then during the second wave that hit japan it was up by sixteen percent or thirty four percents. I'm sorry something higher during the second wave and I think they said initially people were happy to not be working as much. There was not as they related to like no bullying in school and second wave people were injured exhausted and i feel like i talked to my therapist the other day said what is the general state of everybody that you're talking to. Because she sees her businesses you know many therapists right. Now are totally overwhelmed. By how many people are needing them and she said that the general state is just people are starting to get a little even with a little shred of hope with a lot of people who have are excited about biden etc. There's a little shred of hope but just the fatigue is major right now and you're a little more of a chipper person. in general. I tend to ride the line. So when it's so i'm dipping to. Yeah yeah we've we've talked about this a bit that you've had I am a little bit of the ups and downs in. Who knows if it's anything with a diagnosis. But it's it's yeah big ups and downs and maybe more so now. So i wish i had a little more moutainous seems kind of yeah see. They're saying look at everyone's saying exhausted. Yeah so yes yes yes. We're all feeling definitely it. Just yeah been too long. We have nothing to compare this to right. Yeah i guess mystery of our lives. What do we have. That has been so bizarre. I mean there's been other things in weird various. I know i'm thinking back to so we were born. I was born on speak for myself. Nineteen seventy two. And she's getting rid of the for folks hugging my shoulders and going through the scare of the russians. Right the whole. Uss are scared of. We talked about bomb shelters. We talked about. What if there was nuclear war. Where would we go. You know there was a bit of it. And i think our parents sheltered us from it so it wasn't like we got sheltered a lot. Yeah right yeah. So bomb sheltered and yeah. We did a fall of me. But i don't know and then it kind of went away in did that so it's not been another under your desk if you got hit. What are you gonna do under your desk if you get hit by a nuke right. Yeah i think we're going to go to the underground parking lot where there's lots of cement blocks. That was the big plan but reagan saved us. Remember his leg and don't get me started. What was the dire straits video with the reagan. Puppet head oh phil. Anyone fell into myself. Oh you guys. We just interviewed. Steve veroni the drummer for he was in dire straits or drummed with dire straits. He was the deer andrea and drummer for a couple of albums. he did. He's he was heartbreakers. He was a heartbreaker for twenty two years. So we filled common all lead paint in the schools genesis. Yeah and yeah. That was the reagan weird head. That was fascinating. When i was really strange. Yeah i think mouths open to big whenever you see a puppet who was like distended. It's always like kind of odd saw but anyway the what was my point. Where was i going with a center. Now steve running. So we're at the final stages of editing matt and we'll get that episode out Hopefully tomorrow i think so. So is my sister's questioned by the way. Can i tell you that. I research and i did. I wrote a lot of questions. And then he shared them with you in one of your questions which was not a question was your name.

Lay out on the field and they had equipment out but everybody was gone and so we did a big u turn in the parking lot and we drove off and our lives could have been so different.

Mom drives circle to do it. How do you guys you know. I almost signed up recently. But i've decided not to but on the last hit show the rookie. There was the stunt coordinator. He gave me a tip on the best school to learn how to do stunt driving in looked into it his name was rick seaman's driving school right and you've talked about this on past episode. Oh it was so exciting looking because you learned how to drive backwards at high speed you learn. They put the fbi. Trains you to You guys you put on certain. They're called sliders. So you know how to squeal and chase after someone and you learn how to go with the slide in so you got to do high speed. Oh it still sounds so fun doing that. It would be fun.

Marc maron laying on a on a pool bench and thinking. I wonder if he was embarrassed to get into a bathing suit. Or if is in shape or if he got like if he worked out see him jogging. He lives in highland parts. Yeah in that the police where they shop that we've shot there before it's Called the pink college well and it looks pretty much like it did in the show and there's a lot of famous music videos done at that pool that it skateboard videos. But it's in so many movies. I just saw it with shiloh booths film where he in his father was a honey boy so it was in that and that same pool. Okay down and think it's fan is or something little outside of burbank. So is it. Is your film crews to go away from the main scene like hollywood know that like is it cheaper to go outside of the area. It's hollywood bizet. Just yes i mean. Overall it depends but there are iconic if you want an iconic hollywood place like the chateau miramonte or you know they charge a fortune and but overall hollywood experience is that it is always crowded part. Find parking in busy so you want to but you know you should there. You figure it out and everything's film friendly. They're just really expensive. But once you get out outside a little bit then you have bigger streets and so it's And you were saying with kovic to that. The city is really pushing to get the film industry back up and running because they make a lot of their money from the permits and and the whole industry right that the unions are trying to shut it down because it's not safe like sag screen actors guild and the icees and who else was it are trying to stop and say stop making us work. We don't want to and people are getting sick. I haven't gone back.

Have you ever felt really disappointed like when you didn't where have you felt the most failure nearly life okay. Have you ever been suicidal. No i really haven't and But my heart goes out to people who felt that way. Because i can't imagine that that kind of lolo. But no. I haven't felt it. How about him. Have you had moments. Oh yeah really yeah. Yeah i think we have different brains. I think mine's squirts less juice squirts.
00:45:05 - 00:50:06
Serotonin now what do you think that attributed to that was it. High and low kind of thing is it seriously just chemical was a lifestyle. We talked about this a lot. Yeah and you said. And i've asked you. I said what is wrong. Why do we have different brains. How did we come from the same. Because you and mom are pretty like dip boo. All any checklist. I know no. It's good it doesn't make you. I hate my it off. When i i can see it from other people see that. I'm just pollyanna boobs being so pollyanna but it really is built in. I don't know. Yeah so i might be a little more on the house my breath. It's good really good My dad's side of the family. I think they have a little more of the addiction. Depression little more. Running in the vein. Would you say yeah. I think so. We have had some agoraphobia in the family on that side and some alcohol grandpa passed from things like that. So addictive behaviors and different Yeah permutations of mental illness pregnancy. And i've talked to a few people during this time that are not doing so well with alien nation. When you know i don't. It's hard to drink. I can't imagine st- yeah. Yeah and then. Right having to cope all the coping mechanisms. Now what would you say something. That lifts you up. That can get you out of the doldrums. What are things that you've tried That help or is it. Something that kind of you have to ride out and you can't really help it too much. I think the hard thing is when you get in that trap of feeling like leaving your house. Because if you're i tend to get an isolating mood when i get sad so i don't want anyone else to to rub off on anyone so then i don't wanna it's reaching out picking up the phone calling friends i think going i feel like it's friends people that you like and getting out of the house going outside and for me. It's interaction with other humans. It's hard i could do it by myself. I can go hiking. Could but there's something about just sharing in a conversation with someone like were You know phone call and that just gets me out of my own head. Yeah and then you're reaching out and especially if you can help someone else. That's where i you know sometimes and think about me too much. Why what am i doing the so if you could be available for someone else. that's right. yeah. I agree out of my own head. And we talk about A lot of sociology things in caveman theory and The fact that we are social animals than we do need our pack of at some level rate so yeah maybe being reaching out. I'm going to our phone number up again if anyone does want to call us honestly for real for real for real We will pick up and talk to you in. I'm a super available person if someone needs to just talk. I like to be there. If someone's feeling low also and it makes me feel better to be available for anyone who's feeling funky and i really will take your phone calls in taunton. So it's eight five eight zero six eight seven four six. If you'd like to talk to us real. I've just friends we'll just kind of you know. Help talk through or pick you up and then definitely check out the suicide lifeline. Crisis text lines Suicide life on eight hundred two seven three eight two five five and crisis text line. Seven four one dash seven four one and these are great resources I used to work for a crisis hotline. Did you know that yeah. I think he told me what would happen. It was just a lot of people calling in. I would refer them to the proper channels of more help. Because i wasn't a professional. But i was just an available person to talk and it was i opening. I really enjoyed how many people will do all did it. It wasn't often. And i only had a few shifts a week but there are few and it was important. It felt important to talk to them. And you're a good listener. You're good do you feel like he would ever be good as a therapist or i wonder. I think my patience has run thinner and thinner. The older i've gotten the more kids i've had so I think a rabbit keeps popping them out. I don't know maybe maybe once the kids are out of the house. And i kinda like can breathe a little bit you put on. I think this could be the difference between you. And i to when you have. We're going to on larry king another time. We love you but if you have kids you're gonna put a lot of energy into your children. That's your center focus. I would imagine it might be hard to have kids and then be helping a ton of other people to a man.
00:50:06 - 00:55:03
I dunno i into your lot. But yeah i did get kind of burned out because i really maybe overdid it with working in the garden at the school At the elementary school. I run the little garden program there and it got real big and and it was a lot so you know we have eight hundred kids at that school so they were all coming through four times a year getting science lessons and and planting stuff and it was. It was really cool but it was a lot. So cohen came and it was kind of nice because i was getting really burnt out stops and that was that with that with the suicide rate in japan. A lot of it. Was you know. Japan is i think number six country of being like one of the richest and also high suicide rate and productivity where to stop and be forced to stay home was positive in the beginning. And there's something to be said that everyone needed a break. We're so can i get into my sociology. Guys speaking of reagan in his crazy ma. Okay i know some people like reagan fine but there was the queasy time of capitalism. Everything started with like. Let's make this a country built on capitalism. We started working like crazy and we work work. Work work work. Work all the term and allow a lot of the anti in the medication and in big pharma. Can i tell you. i'm sorry. I'm not going to go on a rant except that there's a lot of a over productive americans that need to take a break And also fit figure out a way. I'm not gonna say anything more. Because i'm going on a tangent. No preaching no. It's good. now. How do you feel about mood-altering medications and you know chemically balancing medications chill. I was not a fan of them. Until recently i started taking a tiny bit of lexa pro this past week and a half at the urging of the therapy. I just said you know it was after christmas. I got so sad. I think post holiday blues or totally real and play into anything that you're predisposed with and man this frigging cova. Dan just being going back a lot. And not having hyper and having time off with no purpose no school. No you know so. I'm so proud of you that you are going to school though. I think that's a great purposeful thing that you're doing with this time but yeah during that break. It probably felt like you're idling lot. But but the lexa pro has boosted your mood. Defeat work is only taken a tiny tiny tiny tiny. What i've done in the past is i will sometimes get the blues and not quite know how to get out of it. I do have a lot of tools now to get out of it but there. It's just rough right now. So then i ended up going to the doctor. I've done this a few times. And i've said i think i need to go on antidepressants. And then i'll get some in that. I won't take them because i just want to get through it on my own and Okay so phil saying he did anti-anxiety meds. It was a big help for me. Once i got on them game changer. Yeah so i think. And that's what i talked to my therapist abou is because i've been resisting it for three years and i said do you think that i have depression. Or what is this and she said. I think you might kind of ride. Low like some people write a little bit lower. So i have to do reverse like i. Don't wake up and just go. I have to wake up and go. What am i grateful for. So that's why have gratitude listening to say. I'm very happy to have a house to have friends and family tips so but times like this. I haven't done this i think. The last time they took prozac briefly for six months was five years ago. I was working on that show all the way with bryan cranston more he played. lbj was a period where it was just low and i tried prozac for a little bit for about six months in it. Lifted me but it also felt it goes just kind of like me like like kind of having too much fun. It was weird. I was like. I remember jumping in the lake and swimming and it was kinda supposed to be working. I was like yeah. This is great. So maybe maybe take the edge off. Anti-anxiety i think i was seeking anti-anxiety on top of it was just too much. Yeah and i said how could i d. I always want to figure out how to do it on my own. How can i do it more. Sunshine more exercise vitamins b vitamins. All the other. sometimes. I think and i've talked to other people it's just sometimes i think it's a brain chemical thing and if you could you know i'm not a doctor. She's not a doctor exact honors. If you are feeling like us to talk to someone do reach out.
00:55:03 - 00:58:37
Mental health hotline. Yeah and find therapists in consider that you find a psychiatrist and a psychologist. Maybe the can prescribe meds but who can also talk to you talk their plea plus medical therapy We had a podcast with a artist. Who dot with real different Mental illness and he had a lot to say so. You could look that one up. It's called Craig able champion and that was an interesting. Yeah so too. And i liked that. People are talking about this because it does. It's normal and then see gaming. Podcast so anti-anxiety. Men's have been a huge help not for everyone. Obviously yes and i've talked to. I had a friend too was an architect in new york. She's a good friend and she was calling me three in the morning my time and could barely breathe was going and it was because they put her in a higher level position at her firm architect firm. I guess you call it and She didn't she wasn't good managing people. she hated it. And she was having panic attacks and just said you know. Go talk to a doctor. And they put her on anti-anxiety meds and she said it was a world of difference and got her through that time she figured out how to change her life. Like what phil's saying you know. He goes outside meditates. Sleep better so meds help to get. Bso sometimes she said it just took the edge off she goes. I couldn't get out of my head which was just. It was just looping and looping and creating so much angst that she couldn't even figure out okay so it takes the edge off. My sister is giving me the harry.
