What an honor to interview Kirk Miller this week!
“Chaos to Remission” were his powerful words he used to describe his journey from crisis to thriving.
Kirk Miller is the author of “Chaos to Cured”, co-host of the radio show Beyond Clarity, and founder of chaos2cured.com
After overcoming and successfully managing his emotional and physical challenges he now coaches and helps families, couples and individuals realize there is more to who they are than their diagnosis.
Here is our interview:
I am extremely honored to be a guest on the Dr. Denise podcast, a show I believe can positively change and enhance the way we talk and communicate about mental health.
When Dr. Denise talks about NeuroStyle, “We all process and perceive information in our own unique way,” she is encompassing a way we can all talk about our mental health, negating the negative labels and misunderstandings we have with mental health, and promoting us to embrace who we are, why we are, and that being different is not bad, but actually something that makes us special.
There is no ‘normal’ in life, and were everyone normal, life would not have the same excitement and creativity that leads to greatness in everything, whether sports, scholastics, art, music, and any endeavor of the heart and mind.
After suffering with physical health throughout much of my life, I was diagnosed with two rare physical illnesses: Linear IgA and erythrocytosis. I was also diagnosed with Bipolar One, OCD, ADHD, and generalized anxiety.
Having all of these problems was, at first, something that made me feel like less of a man, less of a human, and less of a son, brother, and friend.
In the interview Dr. Denise brought up information (the role of inflammation that is part of many disease processes) which was one of the clues I utilized in helping to lead me to a unique way of treating bipolar, a method and medication which I use now and will continue for the remainder of my days.
I wanted to make sure everyone knew that I did some unique self-experimentation. It could’ve cost me my life, but no doctor would’ve ever allowed me to follow my instincts. It is crucial to know that coming off of anabolic steroids can cause many of the same symptoms as bipolar, definitely depression and even suicide and homicide.
Please follow your doctor’s advice and do not take steps towards self-treatment without professional guidance.
If anyone listening to the show has questions, I look forward to being back, but in the meantime, find me on Twitter as @Chaos2Cured or at www.chaos2cured.com. I’m always there to listen and help in ways I can. Big or small.
One thing I can say, with complete certainty, is that Dr. Denise shares with us to make the world a more beautiful place where we embrace our struggles, finding the beauty in a tree that clings to the edge of a cliff. Life is not easy, there is no shame in being different, so Embrace your NeuroStyle and enjoy a great podcast from a wonderful person, doctor, friend, and advocate of all.
