Pre-HF: i’m having an existential crisis - part 2
On this week’s episode of the Truth Doctor Podcast, Dr. Courtney Tracy continues her conversation about existential anxiety! She answers questions around the purpose of love, why we live on this planet, why we do our jobs, and who we are if not our thoughts — with 4 other questions discussed in part 1.

Pre-HF: Learning To Listen To Yourself With Sophie Gray
Trigger Warning: Self-Harm This week on The Truth Doctor Podcast, founder of DiveThru, Sophie Gray joins Dr. Tracy to discuss anything and everything about Sophie’s life and journey. In the episode, Sophie discusses the extreme bullying she faced and how she coped with that trauma by closing herself off and creating a persona that wasn't authentic to her. Sophie says that she then engaged in self-harm and became a bully herself. From there, Sophie started focusing on how others perceived her and how she looked externally. During this experience, she built a large social media audience. One day, Sophie had a panic attack on an airplane and resulted in a drive across the country. She knew that she finally had to address her mental health – something she had been putting off for some time. Then she began learning about actually tuning into herself and listening to her needs rather than pretending she was okay when she wasn’t. Now, she’s the founder of DiveThru and works with wonderful people like Dr. Tracy to spread mental health education. Please NOTE: This podcast is not therapy, clinical advice or medical advice.
