Welcome to Talk Rx with Dr. Neha. This week’s subject is a touchy one about politics. I received an email from Jenny in North Carolina: “Doctor Neha, to put it lightly, my family and I have opposing views in politics. While I’m often excited on my way to see them and I care about them, I often end up leaving family gatherings devastated, disappointed and not speaking to them for several weeks. How can I engage with my family in a way that helps us stay connected and still stay true to what I believe in?”
Doctor Neha: Welcome to TalkRx with Doctor Neha. Today, I have a special guest, Kay, who has been so gracious as to be willing to ask her communication question so that all of you can learn as she learns. Welcome Kay.
Kay: Thank you very much.
Doctor Neha: Can you feel your body talking to you? Is it kind of giving you any physical sensations like your heart racing, your stomach turning, anything like that?
Kay: Not right now.
Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. Today I have a special friend and guest, Holly. Thanks, Holly.
Holly: You’re welcome. Thanks, Neha.
Doctor Neha: Today’s a special day for you too.
Holly: It’s a special day. It is my 60th birthday today.
Doctor Neha: Happy birthday.
Holly: Thank you very much. I used to be birthday-phobic, and I would never tell anybody when my birthday was. I was passive-aggressive about birthday celebrations,
Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. This week I have an incredibly special guest, Mike Robbins, here with me. He’s part of the Hay House family and author of Nothing Changes Until You Do. And he’s agreed to ask one of his communication questions so that all of you can learn. Welcome, Mike.
Mike: Thanks for having me.
Doctor Neha: What’s a communication dilemma or something that keeps you up at night?
HI, and welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. What do you want to know about communicating effectively with your family, with your friends, with your partner, with your boss, or with your colleagues? This week’s question comes from a woman in Florida. She says, “Dr. Neha, I’ve been in a fight with a friend for a long time. I wanted to reach out to her, but I’m not really sure how to open up the lines of communication again.
Welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. A woman from New York wrote me an interesting question. She wants to know “Why is it that my friends at work as well as my family at home, when I’m with them, I feel like I’m walking on egg shells. How do I have so many moody people in my life?”
One thing I want to say is that you choose whom you surround yourself with. Certainly, we don’t often get to choose who our family is,
Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. This week, I have a special guest and friend, Lisa Garr. We’re both Hay House authors, and she has so graciously agreed to ask her communication question so that all of you can learn as she does. Welcome, Lisa.
Lisa: Thank you. Actually my favorite thing is communication. I seek and I live for constant conscious communication. That is one of the things that floats my boat, to be honest with you.
I think why I like to conduct interviews so much is because they’re super concentrated,
Hi and welcome to Talk RX with Doctor Neha. What are you wondering about in your communication with family, with friends, with bosses, with colleagues? This week I have a question from someone in Chicago. He asks, “Doctor Neha, I’ve been suffering from chronic sore throats and laryngitis off and on for the past four years. My friends said it’s because I’m not communicating something important. How does she know that? I mean, really, does that even happen?”
It sounds like you’ve been struggling with something ongoing because when you keep having the same experience relapsing over and over,
Doctor Neha: Welcome to Talk Rx with Doctor Neha. I have a special guest, Tom, who I’ve known actually for a few years. He was gracious enough to say that he would come and ask his communication question so all of you can learn as he does as well. Welcome, Tom.
Tom: You’re welcome. Thank you, great to see you.
Doctor Neha: I did some communication work with you a while ago.
Tom: You did.
Doctor Neha: This week I have special guest Stephanie, who is a home health nurse. She has been so gracious and willing to share her questions so that all of you can learn. Welcome, Stephanie.
Stephanie: Thank you. Nice to be here.
Doctor Neha: What have you been thinking about in terms of a communication question?
Stephanie: My communication issue is I don’t understand why it’s so hard for me to get myself organized or try to keep my work area or my office area tidy.
