Welcome to Episode 57 of The Things We All Carry. TodayI bring you the final part of my interview with Bryan. In the previous episodes, Bryan discussed various calls and traumas and effects from both of them. From the graphic and all to real calls he ran as a volunteer to experiencing the worst day of firefighter can have.
Bryan discusses his realization that his career has taken a toll on him, both physically and emotionally. He shares the “whys and hows” about how he finally gets to help he needs. He’s open about his resistance to, and his inability to be forthcoming in a few attempts at therapy and how it limits his chance at any real or actual recovery.
We discussed the insights he’s earned and learned along the way. And he shares both his failures and successes. Bryan will tell you point blank that he is far from finished figuring it out. He won’t hesitate to point out that this thing we all call life is simply a work in progress.
