Discussing Trauma, Addiction, Recovery and Misphonia with Erin Moore!

RMA-Episode 6 Show Notes:

This week we welcome Erin Moore to the Podcast! Erin is a recovering alcoholic and pill aficionado who lives in North Carolina and has seven-plus years of sobriety. There’s a lot to identify with here. Erin’s experience mirrors what a lot of us in the suburbs go through when we struggle with substance abuse while simultaneously raising our kids and trying to hold our shit together. Mike and Nat talk to Erin about recovery, cult-like rehabs, trauma, and Brass Monkey. It’s a freewheeling discussion that could only take place here, in The Middle Ages. 

As if THAT wasn’t enough entertainment, Mark and Nat also comment on some listener mail, give an update on John the Can Man, and Nat tells a story about his failing memory.  All that, plus Recovery in the News and Weird & Wacky on a looong but compelling episode of Recovery in the Middle Ages. 

PLEASE leave us a 5 star review on I-Tunes if you’re enjoying the show and SUBSCRIBE to get the latest episodes.

If you’re in trouble with substance abuse and need help, reach out. There are thousands of people who have put problems with addiction in their rear-view mirrors and you can be one of them. While we neither endorse nor condemn any particular program, the sheer number of available AA and NA meetings suggest that reaching out to those organizations would be a good first step on the road to recovery.
