MyNDTALK - Love Fraud -Donna Anderson

Love Fraud tells two parallel stories. The first is the true story of Donna Andersen's marriage to a sociopathic con artist who took a quarter-million dollars from her, cheated with at least six women during a two-and-a-half-year relationship, and more.  The second story is about Andersen's personal journey. ... For people unaware of these human predators, Love Fraud is a stern warning. For people who have tangled with sociopaths, Love Fraud explains why it happens.

When her son was born, Tammy Bottner experienced flashbacks of being hunted by the Nazis. The strange thing is, these experiences didn’t happen to her. They happened to her grandmother decades earlier and thousands of miles away. ...In this moving family memoir, the author, a physician, recounts the saga of her family’s experiences during the Holocaust. Her story, part history, part scientific reflection on epigenetics, takes the listener on a journey that may sound like a novel but is all the more fascinating for being true.

This conversation is for every girl who has ever looked in the mirror and criticized her own reflection; for every girl who has ever compared herself negatively to others; for every girl who has ever thought of dieting; and for every girl who is already struggling with one...In a world where advertising, celebrity culture and social media reign, it's becoming more and more common for young girls to have some form of negative body issue or eating disorder. This is not only harmful and dangerous on a personal level, it's also destructive and disempowering for womanhood as a whole, and it's got to STOP now!

Penelope Rodriguez takes the listener the often roller-coaster ride of having a son with a mental illness and being unable to access services for him in a timely and useful manner. At one point, her son Donald was prescribed Adderall to focus and Trazodone to sleep, and the antidepressant Prozac because his doctor thought he had situational depression.  In short order, Donald was abusing prescription drugs and scaring the people who loved him most. When he was finally diagnosed with Bipolar 1, he had to ease his life into a place of balance and his family had to do the same.

Ilse Anderson was on the cusp of her new life, traveling the world, growing as an artist, and exploring new avenues of spirituality. She was soaring into a bright, cloudless future, and then, on May 22, 2015, her doctor informed her she had stage four oral cancer. One month later, she underwent a three-quarter glossectomy and a tracheotomy. The ten-hour surgery involved cutting out most of her tongue and fashioning a new one from the tissue of her forearm. Cancerous lymph nodes were removed via an incision in her neck. She awoke from the surgery unable to swallow, speak, or move. And that was just the beginning.
