Unhinged Episode #002: Delving Deeper, Trump, and More
In our second episode of Unhinged, we touch on why some people with severe depression make good comedians. In fact, the need for approval or validation for some can push them to the arts. In our news segment, we delve into the question asked by Psychology Today: does Donald Trump have Narcissistic Personality Disorder? We break down the criteria for this diagnosis, and whether Trump fits the profile.
We also find out more specifics about Doug’s specific case of treatment resistant depression. You’ll hear just some of the treatments his doctor’s have tried, including electro-convulsive “shock” therapy, nearly every mood medication, and we’ll touch on a more radical surgical approach called Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).
