Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome to the Goblin Lore Podcast!

TW: trauma, PTSD, sexual violence, rape, combat violence, death, social anxiety, depression.

Way back in Episode 2 of the show we discussed what trauma is and how it differs from – but relates to – post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD), and describes the resilience people find to work through a traumatic experience. While we have revisited elements of the topic we are doing so today explicitly in discussing the recent fall out of the War of the Machines and the various trauma responses we have seen. This episode focuses a lot on the topic of avoidance and while definitely a heavier topic, one we find important to discuss.

We also finally have a Linktree with all of our discounts/resources


As promised, we keep Mental Health Links available every episode. But For general Mental Health the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has great resources for people struggling with mental health concerns as well as their families. We also want to draw attention to this article on stigma from NAMI's site.

If you’re thinking about suicide or just need someone to talk to right now, you can get support from any of the resources below.
