Bediquette. It’s important in a polycule to consider the needs of your partners. Sleeping schedules and varying needs can be a lot to juggle – but you can do it successfully.
Being afraid is a defense mechanism that has been programmed into our DNA as a means of survival to meet our basic needs. Fears serve a purpose to make us aware of potential danger. Best way to quell fear to acknowledge it and embrace it, assess the risk versus potential gain, and proceed. In this episode we talk about the normal fears of taking the leaps that living your best life may require.

Our son, who you know as Gelt, has/…had (we still don’t know how we’re supposed to say that)… a name. His name is John. We debated about having an episode about this at all – about talking about it at all – about anything at all – but, honestly, if we had to fake a pushing of some sort of other episode out right now, we couldn’t bring ourselves to do it – and we don’t know when we – if we – will ever quite be back to our old chipper selves. So, we did what we have promised you all along and kept it poly real – because this is real life. Though we still hope it’s just a nightmare – but we have lived too many horrible days of this process to have that question any longer. If more people discussed the uncomfortable things – the horrible things – the unmentionables… If they could muster the strength and lift their crying eyes off their pillows and tell their truths through the pain and the tears and if more people could just sit and listen – REALLY listen, we really feel the stigma would go down and awareness and more means to help those who are suffering would also improve. Through this episode, we snotted all over our microphones, held each other’s hands, took quite a few breaks, and mustered up all the strength we could, and made ourselves discuss the most horrific event we have faced or probably ever will – our son’s suicide. Grab your tissues and grieve with us on this episode where we discuss the loss of a brilliant light to this world – our son, our other children’s sibling. He took his own life January 16th of this year at 21 years old. He was so much to so many. He lost his battle with depression. Our lives are shattered.

Everybody and their aunts want to warn you and tell you about all of the “red flags.” Understandably, they are looking out for you. Many times though, we forget about the “green flags.” Knowing what they are and the weight they bare against each other can help you make more informed decisions.
Join us in this episode where we discuss GREEN FLAGS and other miscellaneous topics (as usual).
