#327 Leaving Domestic Violence - Jenna Brister

By Paul Gilmartin

The comedian/storyteller (The Moth) shares about her whirlwind 86 day romance that led to a Vegas wedding to a man who soon turned into a man she didn't recognize, leaving her in fear for her life.  Jenna talks about her experience escaping from domestic violence and stalking, especially how family and friends reacted in terms of supporting her (or not).  She also shares about having to cut her mercurial, often emotionally abusive mother out of her life and the freedom she feels in learning how to stick up for herself even if it means disappointing someone.   Links for Jenna:  instagram: jennatullsbrister twitter: @jennabrister website: www.jennabrister.com   This episodes is sponsored by BetterHelp online counseling.  To see if it's right for you and to experience a week free, go to www.BetterHelp.com/mental   This episode is sponsored by Adam and Eve.  To get 50% off an item, free shipping plus some free gifts go to www.AdamandEve.com and use offer code MENTAL   This episode is sponsored by StampsDotCom.  For a 4 week trial including a digital scale and stamps go to www.Stamps.com, click on the radio mic at the top of the page and enter offer code MENTAL   This episode is sponsored by ZipRecruiter.  To post your jobs for free go to www.ZipRecruiter.com/first   To become a monthly donor for as little as $1/month go to www.Patreon.com/mentalpod and qualify for free stuff from Paul including bonus episodes.
