Summary

The hit show Psych has always been a personal favorite for our host Joe and especially our producer Felice.  So we couldn’t wait to watch when we heard that the show would focus their second movie “Lassie Come Home” on the stroke recovery of one of its main characters, Lassiter, mirroring the real life stroke recovery of the actor of Timothy Omundson who plays Lassiter.  Their touching depiction of stroke recovery through comedy and nerdom is one of the best we’ve seen and it touched our hearts. In this episode Joe and Felice talk all about the movie and its great service to stroke survivors everywhere.  Have you seen the movie? (If not, you should!) Share your favorite moments from the movie on our socials!

Summary

With Invisible Disabilities Week coming up in October, Joe and Lauren continue their discussion about invisible illness from the previous episode.  Joe did a poll in between episodes on Instagram asking those with invisible illnesses  what are some of the most offensive things they have heard regarding their illnesses during and after recovery.  The responses will surprise you.  It’s just a reminder that we must be kind to our fellow humans because you never kow what they may be privately battling.  If you have an invisible illness, what are some of your most misunderstood challenges and how do you cope with others not understanding what you’re going through?  Please share on our socials.
