In March of 2021, my youngest daughter and her teammates experienced horrific emotional abuse from the coach of a Division 1 collegiate athletic team. It was a sickening combination of narcissism, toxic leadership, and verbal abuse and I was crushed by it as there was nothing I could do. I witnessed my daughter getting the exact same treatment that received during my entire childhood and I worked SO HARD to make sure she never experienced it. And here we were. The panic attacks that disappeared 30 years ago came back. The anxiety and depression that I had diffused a few short years ago returned with vengeance. I could not think straight or sleep much less do a podcast. I had to disappear. After a couple of months when this coaching situation resolved itself, I accepted a full-time job and also sold my house in the suburbs and moved to the city in 2021.
But now I am back...and begin with detailing the first visit with my mom in a year.
