2024/01/18 - From Hospital to Hospitality

[NEW EPISODE] From Hospital to Hospitality

Thursdays 5:00pm - 6:00pm (EDT)


The Audience will see how a professional situation helped to bring awareness to a neurological condition left undiagnosed for years until it took this week's guest to observe the same symptoms and finally shed light and bring about a sense of understanding and awareness. The audience will hear from a natural born advocate and she will describe the resources that are available for people to delve into peaceful awareness of their neurodiversity.  Since she isn't an advocate and doesn't want to be we can classify her as hospitable.  Jose Dennis will close the show to show how a famous hotel chain in the hospitality industry has made this past week very hospitable and organic for everyone involved.

Emily Schulman comes from a family that has been involved in support for healthcare programs both for themselves and for others in their community. Emily shares the story of living her life with Dysgraphia and how she was able to quickly discover it in Reatha Grey as she was working with her on side project for and Frank About Health. Emily is an example of someone who naturally took her neurological condition to task to help master her awareness and knowledge of the condition which has organically created a hospitable personality with everyone she works with.  While the discussion of advocacy is brought up, it becomes understood that some people are natural advocates just by being hospitable with each other.  This is an hour discussion on how hospitality can be an outgrowth of neurodivergence coupled with talent.

00:00:49.380 --> 00:00:55.210 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: hey, everybody, and welcome to a live episode from Hilton, New York, of Frank about health.

00:00:55.220 --> 00:01:16.600 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Let's explain something here. What do you do when you're in an open space as opposed to zoom a lot of improvisation. And trust me, today, we've had to do just that for this particular episode, while it has already been advertised as from hospital to hospitality. That is the topic of today's show. It is a healthcare oriented show.

00:01:16.610 --> 00:01:32.569 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: but our guest needed legal permission to be here, and unfortunately the time wouldn't have it. He got permission starting tomorrow. Well, that's just not possible. But I have it on word that he is ready to be here at a later date.

00:01:32.950 --> 00:01:42.540 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But at least this episode now serves as a precursor, for the type of shows that we will be having from this point forward. So the title fits.

00:01:42.770 --> 00:01:52.460 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Last week I was in a hospital doing an epilepsy show, and now I'm in a hospitality chain doing a health show with

00:01:52.720 --> 00:02:01.239 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Emily Shulman from talk radio dot. Nyc, so how better than to work with family on this type of transitional episode.

00:02:01.760 --> 00:02:08.730 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I will issue the disclaimer because I think it's necessary for everybody. There is going to be health topics discussed during the show.

00:02:09.130 --> 00:02:27.490 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Therefore, what we talk about is food for thought. It is meant for you. If you suffer from the same conditions you hear about to use as whether or not you should investigate with your primary care physician, or your specialist who handles the disorder to make your own decisions of your treatment plan.

00:02:27.490 --> 00:02:46.350 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: We're not here to dissuade you from what you're already doing. These are not the views of talk, radio and Nyc. Or Frank about health, but rather food for thought for this engaging hour. Now another person will be joining us later, because that's part of the improvisation here, and that is Jose Dennis, who has been on the show before

00:02:46.410 --> 00:02:48.650 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: helping me reflect

00:02:48.690 --> 00:03:10.860 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: on where we've been and where we're going. He served as a commentator on one of the epilepsy shows. He also worked with Phyllis Quinlan and James Swanson on one of the innovation shows. But he is here to talk about how this particular brand, which will be discussed later, is proving its hospitality in times of crisis, which was the nature of our original guest.

00:03:11.010 --> 00:03:15.869 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: However. we know that hospitality involves why we are here.

00:03:16.630 --> 00:03:24.489 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: which is still not yet to be disclosed. However, again, it's another teaser for the type of quality programming that frank about health

00:03:24.500 --> 00:03:35.229 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: is going to disclose. Now, as you can see, we are live and in person, I'm not switching screens today. But I want to just mention to you about the nature of hospitality.

00:03:35.470 --> 00:03:57.859 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Of course, I had to look in Google to find out what makes the word hospitality a derivative of hospital. That's just my own assumption. It's not even the case. However, they do say that in hospital settings hospitality is about making sure that patients and families feel recognized and that their dignity is appreciated.

00:03:58.160 --> 00:04:07.889 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Hospitality is about taking care of your guests. If you are a host. it has the same kind of mentality, although the dynamic is doctor to patient.

00:04:07.900 --> 00:04:10.589 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: In this case I'm the host.

00:04:10.640 --> 00:04:23.559 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and she who has been a valuable behind the scenes person in helping me produce these shows as well as Logan, who's also behind the scenes, and at the same time is very valuable to me right now

00:04:23.560 --> 00:04:41.359 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: mit Ctl. And in an ongoing project that will affect talk radio, Nyc and the brand we're speaking from. So it only made sense that we would be able to have a health conversation, and at the same time just show the difference between when you go from a hospital and you use your hospitality

00:04:41.380 --> 00:04:44.690 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: in the bigger, wide sense. That's my overview.

00:04:44.790 --> 00:04:53.149 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: You like it. Yeah, pretty good. Alright. You see, we're just gonna have comment. Here we're having conversation. There's no script here except some talking points, but

00:04:53.160 --> 00:04:59.890 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: that helps me ease my nerves, because this is kind of nerve-wracking, as as you were saying, it is for you a little bit. Yeah.

00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:05.789 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: so welcome to Frank about health. Something you know very much about. I do. But I am very happy to be here.

00:05:06.100 --> 00:05:23.580 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Good! Good! Can you explain to the viewers and listeners out there why, you felt the nerves that I myself do feel every time I'm about to be on air. I mean, I personally suffer from stage fright. But I've also never been on a podcast before. So I've helped produce them. I've engineered them, but I've never been on the show before.

00:05:23.660 --> 00:05:33.749 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison:  I haven't been so blessed, so no, but she's been a blessing to me because I came to her and told her, guess what our guest isn't coming.

00:05:34.200 --> 00:05:42.389 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: And within minutes we spun this whole concept so for that I'm grateful to you for being here because we're safe. We have each other's back.

00:05:42.520 --> 00:05:45.140 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Okay? You see how hospitals, hospitals

00:05:45.190 --> 00:05:52.240 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: hospitality put up both. No, we're being hospitable with each other. Now

00:05:52.400 --> 00:06:11.519 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: as such, there is a health story behind it. I think anyone's health story, like mine, with epilepsy, motivates one's nature in their profession or with families to be hospitable. So we're going to go. Do we have? An upcoming. So commercial grade, can I? Yeah, okay.

00:06:11.630 --> 00:06:25.849 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: we're going to in the second segment explore a health issue that I learned a lot about from Emily during the last couple of days we've been working together, and we want to feature it because it is also going to be the primer

00:06:25.900 --> 00:06:31.169 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: for another episode of Frank about health in the in the later future. But, more importantly.

00:06:31.650 --> 00:06:40.520 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I just want to spend the rest of this segment just breaking down the boundaries. As to understanding that Frank about health has been on the air for over 2 years

00:06:40.530 --> 00:07:05.860 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: for advocating, advocating epilepsy cancer diabetes. You name it. We've done it. We've talked about it. There are things we'll be advocating for next week that we've never done before. But that is the reason why we're now pivoting our direction. We want to talk about things that are more cutting edge that are more into the future of all of our listeners and viewers, minds, and that since AI is going to have a bigger role in healthcare, I'm trying to prepare the content

00:07:05.880 --> 00:07:10.200 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: for getting ready for that technology and innovation that'll be taking over at some point.

00:07:10.510 --> 00:07:17.769 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: The other things that I wanted to mention are is that it's very interesting to talk about hospitality

00:07:17.890 --> 00:07:21.390 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: like with the restaurant industry, with the hotel industry.

00:07:21.440 --> 00:07:46.829 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But hospitality also happens with other organizations for people that are indigent, that are homeless, that have been through domestic violence that are just displaced for hurricane reasons, or whatever. And one such organization that I've actually been asked to talk about by Karen Ross, who was on my hundredth episode, is Ronald Mcdonald House or Mcdonnell House. I don't know.

00:07:46.860 --> 00:07:51.239 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Okay, actually, what they do is they actually take homeless children

00:07:51.370 --> 00:07:56.640 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: as well as sick children. If they have no place to go after leaving the hospital

00:07:56.700 --> 00:08:04.870 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and house them, feed them, treat them. raise money for their long-term care, especially if they're orphans or things like that.

00:08:04.900 --> 00:08:32.789 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: She had advised me when I spoke to her earlier, to contact them, but I only had an hour left to go, so unfortunately, I wasn't able to reach them. Maybe I will for a later episode, but I needed to emphasize the nature of hospitality is not just within the tourism industry or within hospitals and healthcare, but it's within organizations that are there to really bring communities together, especially when they're limited with all their resources.

00:08:33.159 --> 00:08:51.250 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I mean, I think hospitality, I mean, I think hospitality is in most organizations, especially if they deal with clients of any sort, clients or customers, regardless of whether whichever model it falls under. It's all hospitality. Yes, it's all about, you know.

00:08:51.760 --> 00:08:57.739 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: assisting, you know your client, your guest, your patron, in

00:08:58.030 --> 00:09:23.469 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: having the best customer experience. Exactly, exactly. And and it's not always the typical customer that pays for a good or service. It's a customer that's looking for the attention and care that they sorely need, especially if they come from whether it's the workplace or families that are just not paying attention absolutely, you know, so it can be qualified as hospitality being a solution for people suffering from mental health issues.

00:09:23.470 --> 00:09:37.829 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I mean, we all have talked about narcissism in the past, and sometimes they are the providers of those issues. So who, better than any organization that is in that space to be able to be a recipient of these individuals that need our care

00:09:37.920 --> 00:09:39.649 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and our observance and our support.

00:09:39.750 --> 00:09:52.510 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: So other than that, I think, if anything I mentioned already, Emily and Jose Dennis will be here, and we are live from Hilton again. Hilton will be discussed as a hospitality member later in the show.

00:09:52.640 --> 00:10:10.689 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and while it is obvious that I am not a licensed medical, professional. I have been devoting my time on this podcast to be hospitable to all you listeners and viewers out there. So for this reason, if you are watching us on Twitch Linkedin, Facebook or Youtube, I am

00:10:11.120 --> 00:10:13.169 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: begging you, please

00:10:13.590 --> 00:10:22.369 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: ask me anything, including what kind of topics you would like to see in upcoming episodes of Frank about health over the next few months.

00:10:22.970 --> 00:10:30.069 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I know Logan behind the scenes will be tracking any of your comments. We'll read them on air if you have any questions. But

00:10:30.120 --> 00:10:50.950 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: this is Stage one of what will be more interactive shows with Frank about health from this week going forward, and I just feel that I'm really ready to start talking about your story. But I'm also interested in that we only have 2 more minutes or so before break. So how do you suggest we handle this part?

00:10:51.140 --> 00:10:54.830 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I was going to issue my own disclaimer. I am also not a medical

00:10:54.880 --> 00:11:04.679 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: professional. I work in podcasting. I work behind the scenes that talk right about in my seat. So take any quote unquote medical advice with a grain of salt. Right? It's

00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:06.530 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: my opinions

00:11:06.900 --> 00:11:09.999 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: personally, and just what I've experienced.

00:11:10.040 --> 00:11:16.959 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Yes, it can be used as a guiding tool if it happens to resonate with you, but always refer to your medical profession

00:11:17.240 --> 00:11:30.940 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: exactly, exactly. If anything like what I've been doing on this show. I'm a role model for people with epilepsy, or even from other related illnesses that I've been seeing on my father's case my cousin's case, or when we were all going through Covid.

00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:45.100 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But she is a role model for her type of illness which we'll discuss in segment 2 and all we can do as role models, or especially if you're engaged and watching us during the next hour or next 45 min. At this point

00:11:45.250 --> 00:12:05.279 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: we can just give you ideas and suggestions, and we and we hope they work for you. But again, it's your choice. You will have your own agency, which is what Emily was just referring to. Maintain your agency, your connections with your medical professionals, and do your own research as well. Therefore you truly own your best quality of life going forward.

00:12:06.510 --> 00:12:08.460 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Are we ready for our first break.

00:12:08.930 --> 00:12:24.020 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I think we probably should take it just a little early. It'll give us more time in the second segment, good point, because we will be doing a lot more improvisation than we've already done, so that all being said, please stay tuned of this episode of frank about health right here on talk radio, Nyc.

00:12:24.030 --> 00:12:29.929 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and on all of our social media that I just mentioned. And remember, send your comments. We'll be back in a few.

00:14:42.060 --> 00:14:53.960 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: okay, everybody and welcome back. And now we are going to dedicate the extra time we've given ourselves. In addition to this segment, all about Emily, her health condition, as well as how she

00:14:54.050 --> 00:14:58.950 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: has qualified herself as a hospitable person in her profession

00:14:59.000 --> 00:15:00.889 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: as well as to

00:15:01.170 --> 00:15:22.740 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: learn lessons. Really, I'm gonna be learning. So this segment is truly improvisational other than my questions. You will see me looking at my phone with these questions, and you'll probably even be see me looking at her. So I know we're not used to this on Zoom, but this is, after all, live. So for that reason alone enjoy the next segment. Okay, that being, said, Emily. First of all.

00:15:22.770 --> 00:15:37.529 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I know I've known you for practically 2 years now. Yeah, sorry. Something like that. But I only met you 3 days ago. That's true that still blows my mind, and I know a lot of that is due to Covid and the restrictions we've all had whatever. But

00:15:37.810 --> 00:15:47.610 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I have just so just to start off this segment by asking, doesn't the in-person experience give you a different feel or dynamic

00:15:47.870 --> 00:15:52.590 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: in terms of any interview or any discussion? It definitely does. There's a certain

00:15:52.640 --> 00:15:56.790 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: disconnect when you're doing everything online, it works to an extent.

00:15:56.900 --> 00:16:08.809 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I know. When we had just entered Covid I was spending a lot of time online with my friends, who were all over in Pittsburgh, Ohio, etc., and I was back home with my parents on Staten Island.

00:16:08.990 --> 00:16:17.890 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and I was spending as much time as I could, just glued to my laptop to try and connect with my friends that I couldn't see right even the ones that lived

00:16:18.490 --> 00:16:19.759 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: 4 blocks away.

00:16:20.020 --> 00:16:23.740 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Oh, my God! So

00:16:24.190 --> 00:16:32.580 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: you know! When the restrictions finally lifted and I could actually start seeing people again, I moved out of New York, I moved to Pittsburgh. I now live with some of my best friends.

00:16:32.830 --> 00:16:36.549 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Yes, Logan, one of my best friends. Yes.

00:16:37.600 --> 00:16:42.490 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Getting to be in person again is a completely different experience. Having to

00:16:43.340 --> 00:16:47.360 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: transition back even slightly to the online is

00:16:47.380 --> 00:16:55.890 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: a struggle, something I'm still struggling with in some regards, because I'm just not used to it anymore. I'd rather be in person, right? I've always described myself as a

00:16:56.510 --> 00:16:59.139 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: big city, low tech kind of person.

00:16:59.170 --> 00:17:15.189 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I'd rather find myself in a big city with lots of people, and you can keep the technology up with my books. And so, being shunted into a technological. Everything was kind of like a gear switch.

00:17:15.319 --> 00:17:19.870 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: because suddenly I have to figure out everything from my laptop

00:17:19.930 --> 00:17:27.860 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: which is not the best laptop. This is the this is the laptop they gave me in college. Well.

00:17:28.200 --> 00:17:42.789 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I wouldn't. I couldn't tell I couldn't. I mean, everyone has known all of my moments of technical difficulty. And that's that that basically, I got it but 6 months to a year ago. But the thing is is that it already is doing wonders for us right now. So

00:17:43.030 --> 00:17:50.929 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: she takes care of her technology. Look at that. No, but kind of we got it. But in our experience in meeting

00:17:51.280 --> 00:18:08.450 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: we learn a lot of each other. Oh, yeah, in a minute, in admit. like I thought you might. I don't know what a kite I expected you to be, but it wasn't what you are. I don't know my height. Yeah, I don't know. Am I expected to be taller? I think I expected maybe you to be taller because you can't tell over the screen. It's

00:18:08.470 --> 00:18:17.900 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: because for the most time you see, people from shoulders up or from mid chest up, you don't know how tall anyone is, so when you meet someone for the first time in person, it's just like.

00:18:18.030 --> 00:18:30.910 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: are we the same height, are you this much taller, are you that much shorter? I don't know what to expect. And so there's that kind of surprise element meeting someone for the first time, even if you know each other online because you've gotten to know them.

00:18:31.330 --> 00:18:45.159 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But we've never known them exactly, because it's like the online world creates a filter. It does, you know? Which I guess was good during the pandemic we had to be a part, for to avoid covid, but the thing is is that

00:18:45.290 --> 00:18:52.999 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: there is a disadvantage that because then you do get like with any technology, zoom fatigue. Oh, yeah, you know. And if your whole life is on

00:18:53.140 --> 00:19:03.599 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: is virtual, your work life especially. You can be sure that game is not gonna last very long. There's also the especially for those of us who struggle with mental health issues the transition back.

00:19:03.610 --> 00:19:18.419 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: You got used to being with technology every day and seeing people abroad and knowing the minute you hang up call, you're alone, or you're just with the people you live with, or you're just with your cat, and there's no one else, and you have your own space to rest, perjury, and relax.

00:19:18.560 --> 00:19:33.819 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and then you find yourself in an in person situation you're like, I don't have to talk to people right? Right? And then you're just, you know, struck and blind, because how do I talk to people? I haven't talked to anyone in person 3 years, I mean, not true for me, but I

00:19:34.450 --> 00:19:52.020 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I can't imagine why I can't imagine. I just did. Yes, yes, but then, on that note, it's only perfect fitting that when we were meeting and we were doing the work that we're doing together. You had a chance to meet Rita. Great. I did a show before. She is amazing. Yes, she is an amazing individual.

00:19:52.220 --> 00:20:15.949 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Yeah, I have been very blessed and getting to be here. That was amazing. Yeah. But like, you know how we had just said that the the zoom world or the virtual world creates a filter. In this case there were no filters that you both actually had a lot in common, you know, shorter than I thought. Cute, yeah. But you believe that? Yes, yeah. Well, I guess anyone who was a TV actress, or whatever is always

00:20:15.960 --> 00:20:30.889 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: it looks bigger than even the average person for starters. But I she actually told me when I after we finished that evening that she lost a lot of weight which I didn't even recognize, because again, it's been a virtual idea.

00:20:30.890 --> 00:20:54.660 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But so that may have had a reason to do with. However she may, I mean I think she shrunk. But she did look. She did look thinner, you know, but I know what you're saying, but no, what I'm what I'm bringing home is that you both learn you share something medically. We drop. Yes, and that's what I want you to expose. So I suffer, I say, suffer lightly. From a condition called dysgraphia

00:20:54.810 --> 00:21:10.770 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: for those of you who have never heard of dysgraphia before, because a lot of people haven't. It's in the same family of disorders as dyslexia, which a lot of people have heard of. Yes, dyslexia being the one where the letters flip around, and if they're too similar, they'll just swab on you, or you'll miss.

00:21:11.780 --> 00:21:26.540 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I don't suffer from dyslexia. I don't actually know what it's like to be in that mine. But I do suffer from dysgraphia. Okay, dysgraphia starts at a young age with fine motor difficulties. So you have trouble holding the pencil. You think you can't write.

00:21:26.710 --> 00:21:33.009 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I didn't understand why people wrote when I was kid. I didn't understand what the purpose of it. I couldn't do it

00:21:34.090 --> 00:21:47.970 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: when when you're a kid, and you can't do something, because not because you don't feel like it, but because you physically are enabled to do something. You don't understand why other people do it. I discovered why people write when I discovered I love to read.

00:21:48.930 --> 00:21:50.620 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: do

00:21:50.650 --> 00:21:57.310 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: it kind of went hand-in-hand to me, writing something I absolutely hated and despised and struggled with every day of my young life.

00:21:58.010 --> 00:22:00.900 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and reading something I absolutely fell in love with.

00:22:01.750 --> 00:22:18.259 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: because at the same time, would you say that you were dependent on someone else's written word to give you the message or give you the story or communicate the fact. I always love reading, mostly because I'm reading, you know, fantasy or

00:22:19.110 --> 00:22:43.760 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I always forget. If nonfiction's reality or fiction no, fiction is not real. II love reading fictional nonfiction. It's based on reality. I always like reading fictional books because it always lets you experience an entirely new world. And the way I see it, you kind of just all play that like a movie inside my head. Yes, yes, which isn't the way it is for most for some people. Some people will literally just see the words inside their head.

00:22:44.320 --> 00:22:51.019 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: And I pity those people because they don't understand the joy of opening a book and watching the movie play out.

00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:52.780 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Interesting?

00:22:52.790 --> 00:22:58.230 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I mean that you've got me thinking when I when I'm reading a book, whether it's fiction or nonfiction.

00:22:59.000 --> 00:23:05.379 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I'll sometimes see myself in a lecture hall. and I'll see myself participating in what I'm reading about.

00:23:05.540 --> 00:23:12.950 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: You know, there'll be a visual component, right? Maybe not as creative as a movie. But I definitely don't

00:23:13.370 --> 00:23:21.420 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: just see the word in my head, I hear, okay, here's a epidemic. Here's here's an exercise a lot of people use. Imagine an apple

00:23:21.670 --> 00:23:25.730 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: okay in your head. Do you see the word apple? Do you see

00:23:26.040 --> 00:23:32.650 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: a picture of an apple? Do you see a red blob blob, vaguely apple shaped with the green leaf.

00:23:33.740 --> 00:23:36.340 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Well, even just now I'm I see a red apple

00:23:36.770 --> 00:23:42.599 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: that I could probably just take from the for me. I think the word apple, and I remember the last time I ate an apple.

00:23:43.710 --> 00:23:51.199 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Actually, I remember in this particular instance, I'm remembering the fact that I'm pretty sure I have a Granny Smith apple in my fridge at home, and it's been there

00:23:51.620 --> 00:24:11.330 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: weeks now, and it's fine. Last time I checked it was still like actually a decent apple, and there was nothing wrong with it. It's just in my fridge. Oh, wow! No. II think about things through memories. Yes, which is not how a lot of other people think they think about things and words and pictures and emotions.

00:24:11.500 --> 00:24:30.130 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I think about things in memories I'll think back to, you know. My brain will flip up. You know you, for instance. Yeah. And I'll remember going forward. I'll probably remember this interaction is one of the key highlights, milestones, milestones. Yeah. And you just remember memorable moments. That's that's how it is for me.

00:24:30.270 --> 00:24:37.759 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: So so I mean, we kind of just pivoted from this graphite of memory. But no, no, because, ironically, we were having a moment with Risa.

00:24:38.120 --> 00:24:45.339 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and you know how animated she gets when she's projecting about her phone, like she's getting a text message about something.

00:24:45.350 --> 00:24:59.350 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and she was having a symptom that you've described through the phone. You want to share what that was about.  one of those things with dysphia is you tend to type phonetically as opposed to

00:24:59.520 --> 00:25:13.979 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and by that phonetically meaning the way it sounds. You'll put the letters in the way. It sounds right like I'll spell January, JARU. A, NNY. And I don't know if that's right in it. Front B. And it might not be right.

00:25:14.510 --> 00:25:27.699 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But you're autocorrect rule sometimes, and sometimes I'll spell it so wrong with even autocorrect. Can't help me. But you know, as I was sitting there with Riza. She was mentioning how she was having a hard time typing.

00:25:28.260 --> 00:25:32.319 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Okay, some people find typing easier than writing physically, but

00:25:32.340 --> 00:25:36.139 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: it's not always the case, especially with people to Crafia. Right?

00:25:36.740 --> 00:25:37.570 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: It's

00:25:38.060 --> 00:25:52.839 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I've always described scrappy as a disconnect between your brain and the page, whatever the page happens to be whether it's a computer screen or your phone or piece of paper. It's a disconnect between what's going on up here and what you can actually put out into the world

00:25:52.890 --> 00:26:05.450 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: when I said it started with fine motor difficulties. I mean, you can't hold the pencil, and you can't make it right. You can't make your hands do what you want, because your brain is going 20 times faster than what you can make your hands process right? Right?

00:26:05.670 --> 00:26:10.419 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Wow! That was amazing. But you actually showed Rifa that she has the same problem.

00:26:10.890 --> 00:26:28.029 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: She always thought she just couldn't type. She couldn't be a secretary. She couldn't write. No, you have dysgraphia. It's an actual disorder that a lot of people I don't know how many a lot of it's, but there's there's people out there who suffer from. It's not just you. So if you you know, if you start filled with writing.

00:26:28.110 --> 00:26:33.509 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and you struggle with spelling and grammar, and all of that mind together, you might have dysgraphia.

00:26:33.950 --> 00:26:37.220 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: That's just how it is. And

00:26:37.890 --> 00:26:48.219 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: if you do, it's one of those things that you're like, you know, there's something different about you. You know. Something's weird with your spelling and your writing, and you've always struggled with it. And

00:26:49.200 --> 00:26:53.199 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: maybe you just weren't diagnosed. I was tested when I was a kid.

00:26:53.900 --> 00:27:04.079 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and they said she has something, but it's nothing. We're diagnosing right now. So she's fine. I tested well, yeah, I was really good on tests. So nobody cared right because

00:27:04.470 --> 00:27:09.029 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I could do a whole episode on the American Public Health public

00:27:09.120 --> 00:27:16.270 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: school system. But that's not the point of the issue. I'll I'll I'll table that one. Yeah, exactly.

00:27:17.210 --> 00:27:25.799 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But it was nothing they were diagnosing. So I didn't find out. I had this graphic until I was in college. My mom was actually

00:27:26.050 --> 00:27:47.050 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: my mom used to be an Emt or work on one of those transit ambulances trans. People from hospital to hospital or hospital to hospital. So both of my parents are big into the medical field. I have absolutely no interest, and it gives me the

00:27:47.070 --> 00:27:58.459 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: which is weird because I'm on Frank about health, but we're not talking about physical health. We're talking about mental health, and that is completely different ball game that I'm I have a strange, fascinating one.

00:27:58.640 --> 00:28:09.050 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I like thinking about how the brain ticks. Yes, yes, II think that. And this is even from my point of view, being that I have epilepsy. It's a neurological disorder. I think that anyone.

00:28:09.370 --> 00:28:18.310 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: yeah, okay, I think that anyone with any kind of neurological disorder will propel them to really be interested in the facts

00:28:18.340 --> 00:28:36.350 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and the issues around healthcare, even if they don't want to be a doctor. Exactly, you know, and you start looking into it because this affects me. This affects my day-to-day life. So I have to know what it's about, because otherwise, how am I supposed to understand myself and what I have going up correct. And then some people just fall down the Radical and everything.

00:28:36.390 --> 00:28:54.460 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Exactly. No, but but if anything I guess with your predisposition to having parents that are in healthcare, coupled with your dysgraphia, you just had this natural tendency to discover what was going on, and you would research it you would. You would help support Rita at her time of need. But

00:28:54.570 --> 00:28:58.419 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: at the end of the day you were able to articulate what she needs to do.

00:28:58.670 --> 00:29:16.839 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: You would become, therefore, like what I've said on the show many times. An advocate of sorts completely by accident. No, but that's interesting, cause. If you're not conscious about being an advocate. But then it's part of your personality. I would then just barely ask you, have you ever thought about being an advocate. Absolutely not. Okay, not a single, not a single day in my life. I

00:29:17.540 --> 00:29:31.450 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I know a lot more about medical things than I ever care to. I know more about. But the way the human body works that I really like. and I'm cursed with this knowledge personally. But when it comes to mental health. It really is

00:29:31.820 --> 00:29:43.739 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: something I think a lot of people could benefit from learning more about. Yes, especially those people who might be neurotypical, who don't necessarily understand how neuro divergency works as a whole.

00:29:43.930 --> 00:30:09.750 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Well, it was a perfect segue, anyway, because based on what she just said, we're going to cover more issues on neurodiency and see how that segues into hospitality. So when we return, we will be here talking more about Emily's story. And really, that's pure open discussion. There's nothing here written about that segment. So you're gonna learn a lot in the next few minutes. So please stay tuned. We'll be back in a few.

00:32:10.080 --> 00:32:24.450 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: hey? And welcome back. You know. It's funny. I wrote about 7 questions for the last segment, and in one or 2 questions 5 of them were answered. See, that is the nature of this particular episode. So I will cover the other 2. But I'm gonna let

00:32:24.540 --> 00:32:36.240 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Emily talk completely, because I'm getting an education here about how advocacy is actually a form of hospitality. So even though you don't desire being an advocate. Very true. Yes.

00:32:36.260 --> 00:32:46.210 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: you are very hospitable the way that you've been able to assemble, not just this show at the last minute, but also the the project which is still under wraps. Yeah, until a later date.

00:32:47.270 --> 00:33:05.670 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I haven't felt as much. I don't know. The word is secure, or as a piece at ease at ease. Thank you. So there's gotta be something there in in your repertoire that you would qualify.

00:33:05.770 --> 00:33:18.980 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: So some people with nerd emergency. Get this desire to people, please? Yeah, it's just the ultimate desire to want to do as much as you can to help as many people as you can.

00:33:19.060 --> 00:33:23.229 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: And it kind of just grows out from that. Plenty of neurotypical people have this, too.

00:33:23.390 --> 00:33:29.809 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But we're mostly for speaking about neuro emergency, and that today. Yes, but it's

00:33:30.110 --> 00:33:32.079 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: it's the want to help if you're able.

00:33:33.240 --> 00:33:40.420 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: So and that's hospitality. It's how a lot of people find themselves working in the hospitality industry because they want help.

00:33:40.540 --> 00:33:47.139 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: So they find a job where they can help. Either they're physically helping people, or maybe they're just helping you find your room.

00:33:48.000 --> 00:33:49.210 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Yes.

00:33:49.870 --> 00:34:03.829 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: some people aren't destined to work in healthcare. I know I'm never destined to work actually in healthcare that's never gonna happen. I like watching it, and like and Grey's anatomy. But I will never have scalpel in my face, and like watching it on TV. That's true. I

00:34:05.500 --> 00:34:34.689 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: gross warning when I was a kid my parents, like the medical ground was, and all that. When I was a kid, one of the shows had an anatomically correct heart made of Jello on a flab, and I just saw it, and I freaked out. I probably scream, and I never wanted anything to do with it again. I did a gross warning for a reason. It's gross. It was Jello. But to a 6 year old it's freaky. Could you see a heart on a slap. It was Jello, it was prop. But

00:34:34.760 --> 00:34:36.570 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: wow! It just

00:34:36.710 --> 00:34:44.940 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: nothing. After that made me want to go into the medical field. No amount of anything could make me deal with that. It's it's just not for me.

00:34:45.230 --> 00:35:07.799 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: No, I understand. You know, it's funny. When I when I grew up I was thinking, oh, I wanna be in business that I knew II knew I wanted to possibly do with something in mental health. I was even being a therapist or stuff like that. But I think what really got me involved in understanding all the nuances of healthcare to start out with in my career was the fact that it was interesting how there was never enough money to pay for.

00:35:08.280 --> 00:35:15.659 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: so that business end got involved, and then I saw some of the inhumanity behind it, which is another. Show, another topic.

00:35:15.760 --> 00:35:17.270 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: another, another

00:35:17.440 --> 00:35:19.079 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: lifestyle, if you will.

00:35:19.140 --> 00:35:49.020 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But what I did discover when I was actually pursuing the understanding of epilepsy condition is how vulnerable people felt, especially in being in a condition that had so much stigma. Oh, yeah, so for me, I was. I was being an I guess a fighter more than an advocate trying to remove that stigma was like a being an advocate, you know, when you're dealing with and or living with a condition that's stigmatized, that people have a depth position to dislike.

00:35:49.490 --> 00:35:56.380 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: It's a struggle, I mean, this comes up not just with mental health, but a lot of other things right?

00:35:56.570 --> 00:36:06.699 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: You know I could. I could floop back to World War 2, and I won't. But there's there's a whole lot of things that are

00:36:08.560 --> 00:36:12.820 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: that are stigmatized that really shouldn't be. Yes.

00:36:14.210 --> 00:36:27.439 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: nobody. That's interesting, cause you're not touching upon another question. I've had, I think you mentioned to me earlier in a com personal conversation that you're in a generation, though that's trying to fight to remove things. So

00:36:28.380 --> 00:36:33.930 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: no, no, I'm in the Twenties range, which is. you know.

00:36:34.200 --> 00:36:40.549 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: it's not the Gen. Alpha. No, it's it's the millennial Gen. Z. Area. Okay, except

00:36:40.830 --> 00:36:56.329 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I was born on the cusp of both. So I kind of get to see both perspectives interesting. But a lot of people from millennial work, from Gen. Z. We're looking at taking back work life balance because we're prioritizing our mental health right?

00:36:56.350 --> 00:37:25.199 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: And we're destigmatizing everything that's been, you know. Mental health used to be something that was discussed behind closed doors. Maybe with your doctor. Maybe not at all. It's something people kept privately to themselves because they thought it was shameful. Have problems going on your brain right? It's a medical condition. Yes, your brain is an organ just like part, just like the ones just like your liver. It's just another. It's just another organ, and just like any of those other ones, they can fail and have problems that can have difficulties.

00:37:25.650 --> 00:37:28.370 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and you can treat them. And a lot of the time.

00:37:28.670 --> 00:37:33.350 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Yes, you might not be able to address the underlying problem. But you can treat the septuz.

00:37:33.710 --> 00:37:39.540 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Yes, exactly, and overall improve your quality of life. Yeah. Well, wouldn't you say that Covid

00:37:39.620 --> 00:37:47.550 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: kind of forced everybody to really explore what was going on, and with anything related in their healthcare lifestyle? But probably

00:37:47.750 --> 00:37:57.769 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I can't say for certain. I think when Covid was first starting I was still in that. I'm fresh faced out of college. But

00:37:58.850 --> 00:38:03.839 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: yeah, it it certainly has been an eye opener for a lot of people. Yes, yes.

00:38:04.000 --> 00:38:15.170 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and and for those of you out there. I came back to Talkradio dot Nyc. After being here the first time, 8 years ago, because I really wanted to expose all of the experience that I'd witnessed

00:38:15.290 --> 00:38:26.169 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: with Covid. How was affecting my father's health in particular recovering cancer. How it was affecting my mental health being that I have epilepsy, but the irony epilepsy had nothing to do with my Covid.

00:38:26.190 --> 00:38:30.839 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: but I guess the talent that I had already fighting for epilepsy

00:38:30.860 --> 00:38:41.209 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: made me into a warrior source for fighting for other issues. And so that's what I will continue to be doing in 2,024, and knowing with you, Logan, behind the scenes and with you here.

00:38:41.410 --> 00:38:47.899 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I know it's gonna be much more fuel with the whole networks backing and and moving forward with

00:38:47.920 --> 00:38:53.099 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: whatever episodes we bring to the table. You know, you know, we look at

00:38:53.150 --> 00:38:59.090 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: the generational gap, and how each generation changes from 1 point to another. And

00:38:59.560 --> 00:39:08.550 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: it's really astonishing just how much the generations have changed. Yes, absolutely. I mean, I guess you also pointed out. You know I

00:39:08.560 --> 00:39:19.319 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I'm in my 50 Si don't mind explaining it. Remember, I had a birthday episode a while back. The thing is is that I think I'm Gen. Gen. I wouldn't be Gen. XI would be probably Gen. Y.

00:39:19.580 --> 00:39:21.990 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: You know where I post baby boom.

00:39:22.420 --> 00:39:31.739 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Maybe I have. Jenx. Jen XI. Yeah, that's Jen X. Frank. Why, I'm just so now. But the thing is is that Gen. Y. Was renamed millennial.

00:39:33.100 --> 00:39:35.749 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Really Gen. X. Gen. Y. Gen. Z.

00:39:36.770 --> 00:40:01.919 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Oh, I see. And then the generation after fee is like Aa, II don't. Alpha and Beta, yeah. My nephews. They say they're Gen. Alpha. I go with the flow. But either way the thing is is that II was already back then more so in the nineties. I was back then trying to just uncover the truth.

00:40:01.920 --> 00:40:07.960 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Truth deserves to come to light. These are issues we should be acknowledging because there are.

00:40:08.390 --> 00:40:32.700 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: you know 1,000 millions of people worldwide that are struggling with anything like this every day. To not talk about them is to do everyone at disservice exactly. Exactly. People are suffering, and under conditions that they don't even know they have. They can say that the media is trying to make sure people are disservice with not getting the full picture, but it is really up to ourselves to unleash the full picture through our own experience and research.

00:40:33.520 --> 00:40:46.420 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: which is what I remember to do research from credible sources. Yeah, there is plenty of misinformation on the Internet. Make sure you're researching from a credible source. Cross track your sources, yes, and make sure the source you're checking is actually credible.

00:40:47.080 --> 00:40:52.980 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Yes, if what you're doctor saying isn't something that necessarily resonates with the way you think about

00:40:53.150 --> 00:41:03.680 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: get a second opinion. You're allowed to do that. You're allowed to see 3, 4 doctors and get all of their opinions on what's going on with you, because you know yourself best, absolutely, absolutely.

00:41:03.720 --> 00:41:06.630 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: And that's what I've been saying to all you guys out there for

00:41:06.830 --> 00:41:19.450 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: 103 episodes at this point. No, but I'm just thinking that the whole experience we had with Rita was that during Tuesday that was Tuesday

00:41:19.720 --> 00:41:24.710 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: it blew my mind. I mean you. Me. Joey was in the room.

00:41:24.790 --> 00:41:27.170 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: And Rita.

00:41:27.330 --> 00:41:49.669 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: it's like the 4 of us. I felt like we're having a reunion. And yet we only met each other the day before. Exactly, you know. So that that definitely is a mind blower. So for you out there, who are virtual workaholics, or whatever try to get yourself out there or in organization with hospitality, and really get to reimagine exactly that, too, which, in fact, I think you saw a Broadway show last night.

00:41:49.810 --> 00:42:15.420 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Okay, no, I didn't catch the last night. I caught the matinee, the matinee, the matinee. So that was like 2 pm, okay, well, I think we're still good to go. Let me see if I asked you. Oh, yeah, I did wanna know in terms of your dysgraphia there were different stages of life which one which stage was the most impact for you? Or did you find that there were stages? So

00:42:16.670 --> 00:42:36.400 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I discovered my diagnosis. It wasn't a formal diagnosis. It was really more of my mom was searching up disorders on the Internet. So I don't know how my mom came across it. But she's like, I think you have this, and I read it. I'm just like, dismiss everything that's been wrong with me my entire life that I didn't even recognize. That was wrong with me. It resonated like, 2, 4 of

00:42:36.530 --> 00:42:48.020 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: yeah, yeah, yeah, all of these things are just me. This is me on a page. And I didn't even realize that there was something going on right? I just thought I was a little different. I write it weird. Write it.

00:42:48.290 --> 00:42:53.470 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I wrote weird. I wrote weird. And the people who

00:42:53.620 --> 00:43:13.379 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: rip right back and forth with me on a regular daily basis, with text message everything they get used to it. But you know, as a small child not being able to hold a pencil properly. The only reason I hold a pencil the way I do these days is because I developed a fascination for Japanese culture, and I wanted to learn how to use chopsticks. Awesome.

00:43:13.920 --> 00:43:22.240 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Oh, we have a break coming. Yes, we do. But that's in 2 min. Okay? And that's just Logan saying that he's fluent in me.

00:43:22.350 --> 00:43:49.390 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Well, you know again, if we're acting interactive, that's just a reminder to you guys, make all of your comments on Youtube, Twitch, Linkedin and Facebook. And we definitely will respond, we're live now. So if you have any questions, especially when we wrap up the show in the next segment. Please ask them, and we will do our best. One particular question I'm seeking from all of you is, what episodes. Would you like to see on Frank about health throughout 2024 that we may not have covered yet?

00:43:49.390 --> 00:43:57.580 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I mean, this dysgraphia literally happened at the last minute, and it's something that guess what, everybody. We're gonna have

00:43:57.580 --> 00:44:23.539 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Emily come back with Rita to discuss that very disorder, and of course make comparisons to dyslexia and dysmorphia, and any of the which that will be exempt from that show. But that is still in the planning, and we'll get to it at the now, I guess one final thing before we're about to take our break. But

00:44:23.550 --> 00:44:34.839 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: what can you say about your hospitality with talk radio? About Nyc. so I work behind the scenes ideal with our hosts. ideal with our staffing team. To

00:44:36.540 --> 00:44:37.440 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: this

00:44:38.820 --> 00:44:53.839 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: dysmorphia and dysphoria are paired up the same way. Dysgraphia dyslexia. They're they're they're they're similar. They're the DYS. Is the similar. Yes, but they're different type of disorders completely. Yes,

00:44:54.750 --> 00:45:01.230 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: so you know, at the station. I have a lot of behind scenes. I make sure people are, you know, submitting their summaries on time.

00:45:01.240 --> 00:45:11.049 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Yes, you are very good at that. Thank you. I appreciate that. Yeah, I'm I'm double checking for titles. I'm answering questions. People have questions.

00:45:11.410 --> 00:45:20.109 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I'm handling Sam's guests because I mostly work hand-in-hand with Sam. Yes, yes, so hospitality is definitely a huge part of my job.

00:45:20.420 --> 00:45:33.500 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: So that's your form of advocacy. But would you say your condition has led you to do this kind of work, or, as sometimes I think my my condition actually makes my job harder.

00:45:33.680 --> 00:45:39.229 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: You know, I struggle with writing emails. If you'll ever notice I have.

00:45:39.510 --> 00:45:55.519 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: If you see the same email over and over and over again, like month, week after week, month after month, with just like the dates change. It's because I wrote them once, and I just keep reusing them because it's the same message. I'm just telling it again and again, because I'm just reminding you to do things exactly. So I

00:45:55.530 --> 00:46:09.809 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I use shortcuts whenever I can. I use grammarly correct or other grammar fixing programs to help with my spelling because I do want sound professional something I do. I struggle with

00:46:09.840 --> 00:46:18.019 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: interesting I type the way I talk, which you'll notice is very candid, very contrary chill. Yes. Oh, we're about to take our

00:46:18.540 --> 00:46:21.019 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: coke. Did we have another comment? We have

00:46:23.000 --> 00:46:47.739 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: that. It's if something's a comment about Stephen Fry. We're 1 min to break. All right. So that being said, Please come back. Well, you will. Please stay tuned as we wrap up this particular episode. Our second guest, Jose Dennis. He was on an Uber, and apparently it is downstairs, so who knows? He might be sitting in this chair when we come back, or maybe he'll just join in in the middle of our final segment.

00:46:47.790 --> 00:46:50.380 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Either way, we'll be back in a few. Stay tuned.

00:48:48.730 --> 00:48:53.569 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: okay, and welcome back to the final segment of this episode during the break.

00:48:53.790 --> 00:49:15.789 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: We're going over the questions I may or may not have asked, and Emily pointed out that I was going to ask a question if she's in treatment or having medication. Well, we've already. I know she's in treatment. I mean, I'm in treatment. We all have to be, especially for a night neuro divergent. In whatever way. My, my case is epilepsy, it it helps, you know, seeing a therapist or a psychiatrist, it really helps

00:49:16.410 --> 00:49:24.180 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: reexamine what's going on in your own head and maybe takes you out of your own equation. Yeah way you can look at it objectively and see. Oh.

00:49:24.540 --> 00:49:26.470 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: that's where everything went wrong.

00:49:26.630 --> 00:49:42.950 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Exactly, exactly. But the but the main question that you feel is important for me to ask out there, especially if there are such dysgraphia patients out there. I mean, I'm not actually on. Are you on medication?

00:49:43.120 --> 00:50:03.790 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison:  there's nothing for medication to do with this graph. Yet there's no medical thing that they could fix. It's just a disconnect between how fast your brain moves and how fast your hands move. There's no medication that can fix. And it could lead to some psychological issues like depression or anxiety. Exactly so. A lot of these mental health disorders.

00:50:03.930 --> 00:50:22.270 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: You treat the symptoms, the symptoms being, you know, depression, anxiety, etc. So I am on medication for depression and anxiety. It helps. You know regulate my levels and keep me as a normal same person instead of someone with the emotional range of teaspoon.

00:50:22.380 --> 00:50:30.930 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: That's a Walt Disney picture. By the way I'm thinking of fantasia, or whatever spoonful of sugar married Pops

00:50:31.640 --> 00:50:42.189 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I knew at least the production company. No, but you're you're absolutely right. Oh, we got another comment or question. That's that's Logan in the chat. Okay.

00:50:42.220 --> 00:50:58.860 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: alrighty. Overall. II it's, I think, 7 min before we go off air, and I do know that as we speak, Jose Dennis is in the elevator. I am going to read this comment. Everyone should get therapy. It's not just for Nora. Divergent people. It's just generally helpful.

00:50:59.560 --> 00:51:04.380 I totally agree, and I have been in therapy since the age of 19,

00:51:04.450 --> 00:51:25.000 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and that is quite some time ago for me. But I think it was what also motivated me to study the field of psychology. And being an epileptic, I focused on neuro psychology. And here I am today, X number of years later, advocating for neuro divergence in addition to other illnesses right here on this show.

00:51:25.000 --> 00:51:48.119 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Now, the person that was gonna be here right now to help me close. The show is one of the business partners I've been working with for the last 2 years, not only on this show, but also with another hospitality brand, which I mentioned earlier, which is Hilton. We are now live from Hilton, in Hilton, New York. My one hundredth show was Hilton, the Double Tree, by Hilton in Chicago.

00:51:48.120 --> 00:52:11.699 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I have done shows at the Beverly Hilton as well as New York Hilton Club, which was last April. Now I'm trying to do more, Hilton oriented programming going forward because Hilton has been viable or a true hospitality experience for me to do the show to come up with the nature of topics, and, as I mentioned on a previous show.

00:52:11.760 --> 00:52:23.109 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: the birth of my show was based on an experience I had during Covid, at the Doubletree Times Square, where they had turned their entire hotel into an essential worker

00:52:23.750 --> 00:52:44.829 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: place of residence. They weren't going home to spread the love of Covid to their families or friends. I had spread the wealth that right? No, although we had stimulus money at the time. But no, there's no good way of saying, Yeah, you can sugar food at all you want. It was they were doing it so that way they keep their family safe

00:52:44.940 --> 00:52:52.179 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: exactly up. Come right in. I think Jose Dennis is about to join us. Let's share the hospitality

00:52:52.340 --> 00:52:58.740 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and overall. What we have discovered is that both Jose and I were able to

00:52:58.770 --> 00:53:25.090 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: work out an arrangement where they have allowed us to produce this show from Hilton's, based on the topic based on the guests where they're located, but at the same time to do what we can to help improve their brand reputation as a true hospitality company that is concerned about the healthcare and the wellness of their members, their timeshare owners, their travelers, their management teams. And

00:53:25.420 --> 00:53:33.809 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: we were going to have a guest today discuss that at length, but that will happen more further at another time. We are now rotating chairs

00:53:33.830 --> 00:53:35.580 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: to represent to

00:53:35.830 --> 00:53:50.980 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: introduce you to Jose Dennis, which you may, which you may have seen before. On the episode we did back in. I think it was September which was the reflections of where we've been and where we're going. But you also have shared your epilepsy story.

00:53:51.000 --> 00:53:59.409 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: And at the same time, since we've covered that at at nausea, and we're not going to discuss his story further, because you did see an epilepsy show last week.

00:53:59.440 --> 00:54:01.340 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and at the same time

00:54:01.450 --> 00:54:07.419 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I would like you to share your experience with this past few days we've been here at Hilton.

00:54:07.490 --> 00:54:12.740 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: How hospitable would you say that Hilton has been at meeting your needs?

00:54:13.090 --> 00:54:18.769 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Oh, extremely hospitable! They are very nice kind in the morning when I leave.

00:54:19.100 --> 00:54:20.659 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: It's a good work.

00:54:20.970 --> 00:54:24.040 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison:  Very poor, Joan.

00:54:24.570 --> 00:54:26.900 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: greeting me all the time, and

00:54:28.420 --> 00:54:43.549 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: I have no complaints. This is the best time I've had in a long time. So he's obviously talking for the point of view of a tourist. He is, in fact, a timeshare owner. We we share a deal with. Hilton ran Vacations and Hilton Club.

00:54:43.640 --> 00:54:54.870 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: But we are working with the Hilton family to create that sense of needed community support and advocacy for various health care, senior

00:54:54.870 --> 00:55:16.200 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: and other kinds of family health related issues. One such campaign that is a little time in the making that we're trying to work on is fundraising opportunities for the people in Hawaii, particularly Maui, those people that suffered from the fires out there in August we have been doing a lot of conversations with various people out there, especially

00:55:16.200 --> 00:55:41.829 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: Hilton, grand vacations in Maui at their Maui Bay villa resorts of which they are doing a lot of fundraising through the Red Cross and through other charitable organizations that are trying to do the outreach to rebuild that legacy city of Lahina. That's a number of years in the making, but hopefully frank about health and any of the programs on talk radio, Nyc will be able to advocate for that.

00:55:41.850 --> 00:55:52.600 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: As you can see, we've already done that by creating the narrative through this episode with Emily and Logan behind the scenes. And here Jose and I are giving you a preview

00:55:52.960 --> 00:55:56.540 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: of the nature of the frank about health podcasts going forward.

00:55:56.560 --> 00:56:02.499 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: So next week, we have a very special episode that has already been

00:56:03.640 --> 00:56:17.039 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: pre-produced and is going to have a lot of medical advocacy behind. It is going to talk about a narrow divergency of another member of the talk radio and Nyc. Family.

00:56:17.110 --> 00:56:45.840 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: It is about dissociative identity disorder. It is not from Hilton, but it is from a hospital. So, hey, we're meeting the true narrative of this episode, but I implore all of you out there, especially on social media, to be aware of all your questions and all your comments. This is going to be a very informative narrative discussion, and from the initial feedback I'm getting.

00:56:46.050 --> 00:56:54.320 Emily Schulman; Frank Harrison: there'll be a lot of eyeballs watching this program. So that being said, please stay tuned for that next week, but tomorrow's shows include
