Rank #4: Tackle TBI with NFL Alumni

Podcast cover
Read more

Craig McEwen ~ former tight end in the National Football League (NFL) for the Washington Redskins and the San Diego Chargers, he shares with us his experiences with TBI and new initiatives by the NFL / NFL Alumni to better protect younger players. As this week leads in to Super Bowl LI, between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, take a moment to hear from a veteran player, member of a Super Bowl winning lineup, as he shares his story with us.   Crossing the Line Craig always dreamed of being a pro football player.  He didn't realize that his career would start by crossing the player's strike line, but that's what happened.  Craig was playing college football in Utah when he got the call from the Washington Redskins.  He would get the chance at the career he dreamed of, but to get on the field, he would have to sign on to play when the other players were on strike.  Craig jumped at the chance just to get on the field.  Once the strike was over, he was officially hired on.   He became part of the Super Bowl winning team in 1987.  From there, Craig was recruited to the San Diego Chargers where he spent the next 3 years.  Craig was what's referred to as  "lunch pail" player - he was one of the guys that knew he needed to stay focused and be a good member of the team - his role was not one of show boating - he was in it for the love of the game and the team.  His goal was to stay on the field, so he gave his all every time.  That fierce determination got Craig his years in the NFL, but it also plays a factor in the repercussions he now deals with due to his career.  When you give your all in a high-contact sport, you're bound to suffer some injuries.,  Everyone knows that, but what Craig didn't realize was that it would be the invisible injuries that affected him the most.  Craig's body took a lot of hits and rough tumbles during his years on the field.  He had to stop playing after neck, back and foot injuries.  After some back surgery, he even tried to make a comeback in the European league for a year, but his physical injuries prevented him from sustaining a career as a player.  Although Craig still has some physical difficulties, it was his head injuries that have most affected his life. Washington Redskins tight end Craig McEwen (32) in action during the Redskins 30-21 loss to the Phoenix Cardinals on September 25, 1988 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona. (AP Photo/NFL Photos) The Repercussions of Concussions When Craig left the NFL, his life carried on pretty nicely for about 10-12 years: he has a long term relationship which produced a daughter, he owned a successful bar and then opened a personal training franchise.  Life was good.  But somewhere around 2011, Craig's life took a downward turn.  He had been dealing with some residual physical pain due to his bodily injuries and began self-medicating with alcohol and pain pills, he got into a bad business deal and lost any financial stability he had, and his relationship with his long-term girlfriend ended, so he was now alone, in pain, and lacked the insight to see past his current state of affairs.  That's when Craig started noticing how his mind and emotions were being affected.  He dealt with bouts of depression, foggy memory, inability to concentrate, forgetfulness, and felt hopeless after what his life was turning into.  A New Lease on Life It was through his physical and emotional battle with himself that Craig discovered that the cognitive symptoms he was experiencing (depression, self-loathing, foggy brain, etc) were actually tied into his repeated head injury and his commons were symptoms of repeated concussions.  Since 2012, Craig has been seeking personal growth and healing.  He entered a treatment facility in 2012 to aid him with gettin...

Rank #8: Zander Keig: Beyond Race Or Gender

Podcast cover
Read more

Zander Keig, LCSW  shares with us his experiences, indicative of a deeper causality of discrimination that taps into a primal fear of 'the other' that transcends race or gender... I met Zander at a friend's house-warming party.  We spoke of working within the government agency system of therapy and had a lively discussion.  I went home and "friended" him on Facebook  - I then discovered my new friend was quite a fascinating person, having lived a life of social advocacy for the LGBTQ population.  It was when I clicked on a link to his website that I saw he was not only an advocate, but a well-respected person in that community who had actually gone through the transition from female to male.  Zander Keig is a unique individual, not only because he used to be a she, but because his life has been one of overcoming tremendous hardships, starting at birth. When Zander was born, the doctor predicted he would be dead, but he was not.  Then when he was 6, he developed encephalitis - he went into a coma and when he awoke, he had to relearn some basic life skills all over again.  Zander's life since then has been a journey of self-discovery and social advocacy.   Zander and I discuss: * His early life struggles and some family reflections * Why he identified with the "separatist lesbian" community and what that meant for him * How and when he began identifying as "trans" * Why he feared Testosterone * How he and his wife created a relaiotnship that has withstood the stress of transitioning * How his education helped him understand those that did not understand him * Why he decided to edit and write books and articles on the subject of transitioning when his own transition is a very private experience * Why trans men are often invisible in our society * How intentionality informs his relationship with his wife * The strange thing that happened when he went from being seen by society as a 1st-generation Mexican-American lesbian to a highly-educated white male - where did his culture go?  * The prejudices he experienced both pre and post transition were not what you'd think!  Questions and Comments Although we have comments turned off this blog in general, Zander welcomes your questions and comments.  Feel free to email me DrMullen@CoachingThroughChaos.com, or leave a comment or a question on my facebook page  and I will be happy to pass it on.     Resources Zander speaks of some of the books he's edited, the documentary being produced about his life journey and his website.  Here is where you can find those resources: Website:  ZanderKeig.net Film: Episodes of Zanderology Books Zander has been involved in, including Manning Up and Letters for My Brothers can be found here     Awkward Correction on my part I realized when listening back to the produced episode that I was saying "LGBT and trans" when, of course in LGBT the T stands for trans - I don't know why I was saying it that way, but that's how it came out.  To anyone that thinks I was "not aware" - I am, I just speak faster than I think sometimes and it results in awkward verbal trip-ups.     Coming Up on The Coaching Through Chaos Podcast I just returned from the Podcast Movement conference for podcasters.  I learned a lot and made so many great new friends.  What I learned has led me to decide to make some changes to the structure of what I bring you here at The Coaching Through Chaos Podcast.  The next episode will actually be a re-boot: I w...

Rank #10: Dealing with a Narcissist

Podcast cover
Read more

Darlene Lancer, JD LMFT  ~ educates us about narcissism and how to deal with a narcissist, as discussed in her new book... The topic of narcissism seems to be all the rage of popular fodder on the internet and the pop news shows these days. But what they are really referring to is our “selfie generation”, the millennials vying for attention on social media. They have really mislabeled an entire generation of people. Today we are exploring what it means when you find yourself in a relationship with a true narcissist. My guest today is Darlene Lancer, JD, LMFT.  Darlene first joined me in Season 1 to discuss how to help yourself to break codependent behaviors in relationships. That episode is still one of our most popular to date. Please check it out if you haven't already. A natural progression for her work with codependent people turned to exploring narcissism. Why would this be a natural progression you may ask? Well, when someone is codependent, they sacrifice their emotional needs for those of their loved ones, often taking on a care taking role with a partner. It is not uncommon for these people to find themselves in relationships with alcoholics or drug addicts, as these people need to be taken care of in many ways and they are often unable to meet their partner's emotional needs due to their addictions. Narcissistic people would also have a tendency to attract codependent people as they are consumed with their own grandiosity and keep people close to them who do not challenge them to meet their emotional needs, allowing the focus of the relationship to remain on them and what they want. Darlene's latest book, “Dealing with a Narcissist: 8 Steps to Raise Self ­Esteem and Set Boundaries with Difficult People” explores the emotional upset that can happen when one finds themselves in a relationship with a narcissistic person.   What is Narcissist? A narcissistic person is one who meets diagnostic criteria as set forth in the “diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM­5)” which is the manual the medical and mental health field use to diagnose patients. It is NOT just a term used to describe someone who is self ­focused on social media. DSM­5 criteria for narcissistic personality disorder include these features: * Having an exaggerated sense of self­ importance * Expecting to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it * Exaggerating your achievements and talents * Being preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate * Believing that you are superior and can only be understood by or associate with equally special people * Requiring constant admiration * Having a sense of entitlement * Expecting special favors and unquestioning compliance with your expectations * Taking advantage of others to get what you want * Having an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others * Being envious of others and believing others envy you * Behaving in an arrogant or haughty manner Although some features of narcissistic personality disorder may seem like having confidence, it's not the same. Narcissistic personality disorder crosses the border of healthy confidence into thinking so highly of yourself that you put yourself on a pedestal and value yourself more than you value others. (http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/narcissistic­ personality ­disorder/basics/symptoms/con­20025568) Finding oneself in a relationship with a narcissist can be an emotionally draining and painful experience. In this interview, Darlene and I dig deep into what the dynamics of that relationship can look like,
