BABY MOUNTAIN RADIO PRODUCTIONS
The Home of
Caregiving For Dementia.
Hello, my name is Michael Delaney Sr.I started Baby Mountain Radio Productions as the home of a podcast that I wanted to start. I just didn’t have the name of the show. We were all sitting around the table one evening after dinner. We got to talking about me starting the podcast. We were talking, company names, instead of show names. Although Mama was losing some functionality, Mama who has dementia now is the one that come up with the name Baby Mountain Radio.
I wanted some way of telling my story of living with someone with dementia for about 2 years. I really thought about starting a radio station, ever since I saw the movie Pump Up the Volume with Christian Slater. In short, I thought that it would be so cool to talk to other people about anything that comes to mind, but I didn’t just want to talk all the time. I thought with a radio station I could at least play some music part of the time, so I wouldn’t have to talk all the time.
While researching how to start a radio station, it became apparent to me that it was way too expensive to even think about after all the royalties you had to pay. I mean, I needed about 6 licenses just to play the music for one, and then all the paperwork you had to keep up with in order to play the music. So I decided that a radio station was way too expensive. But while researching the radio station I came across a thing called podcasting.
So, you guessed it. I started researching podcasting. Come to find out podcasting is sort of like a radio station without all of the licenses and the royalties and all that. But with that said, without all the licenses I could no longer play the music, so I had to talk a lot. So I started researching what a podcast was and how to do it. The more I dug into podcasting, the more I thought this was my replacement to a radio station. I came across the name of Cliff Ravenscraft The Podcast Answer Man, so I started listening to his podcast because I thought maybe he’s teaching people what a podcast is and how to do it. Sure enough, that’s exactly what he was doing.
And the rest of the story is history. Baby Mountain Radio Productions is the home of my podcast called, Care Giving For Dementia. With Hopes of adding more podcasts soon.The latest episode of Care Giving For Dementia is down below. I hope you enjoy this episode.
Episode # 56
In this episode of Care Giving for Dementia :
There’s not a whole lot of show notes for this one. This entire episode has been on the most severe form of mental illness. You ask what the most severe form of mental illness? Well, the most severe form of mental illness is suicide. Family has not only been hit by mental illness, but it has also been hit by the most severe form of mental illness.
In this episode, I talk a good deal about suicide, my opinion on suicide, my opinion on life. Suicide is wrong. When you have a society that believes that you come from an ape, you have a society that has no accountability for anything, it does.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. I’ll say that again, suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Suicide doesn’t fix any problem that you may face in life. It’s not a fix for someone not going out with you, it’s not a fix for money problems, Suicide is not a fix.
Death comes fast enough on its own you don’t need to rush it along. Even after you die there’s still accountability for your life here on earth. You can’t live 80, 90 even 100 years and that’s all there is to it. Life cannot be the end! I agree that life is hard. I agree that life has its problems. Lord knows I’ve had mine, but living through the hard times makes the good times even better.
There’s got to be someone in your life that you can talk to if you’re considering suicide. If your problems are to the point that you considering suicide find a friend, a coworker, a teacher, your parents, even your kids find someone to talk to if you don’t have anyone like that that you can share your feelings with, then the national suicide prevention hotline number is 1-800-273-8255 and you can always reach them as well by chat at www.suicide prevention lifeline.org. Give them a call. Give them a chat.
If you don’t have anyone in your life that you can talk to about your problems start a podcast about your problems. Talking about your problems, whether it be with someone or in a podcast really helps, I know this podcast is help me tremendously dealing with what mom is going through with her dementia.
Find someone to talk to, find something that you enjoy doing, anything at all to distract you from your problems. But whatever you do, don’t, don’t commit suicide things will get better. They will get better with time.
