Annie and Laurie recall times they have experienced "hit-the-ceiling" stress and crisis resulting from issues that surge out of a family member's addiction. Some of these crises were even life and death situations. Both reveal how they pulled themselves down in the moment, who helped, what helped, and what didn't help – including the "10 types of distorted thinking" that can arise in the midst of madness. Both have learned how to quickly come to a place of peace and to make smart decisions. Lots of information in this week's podcast for those times of Level 10 of stress, conflict and crisis!
