Dr. Seku Gathers:

Cutting Through the Bullshit

Dr. Seku Gathers: Cutting Through the Bullshit Dr. Seku Gathers

Good People,

This week I wanted to share a conversation I had on Dr. Wayne Pernell’s show One Sharp Sword.

On this episode, I take you through my own journey – some of which may sound familiar if you’ve been listening in for a while. I talk about what my childhood was like and about some of the physical abuse I went through, and how that led me to attract abusive relationships as an adult. I tell the story of my tipping point, which was when I contracted hepatitis and needed to commit to taking care of myself to live.

As we go on, I talk about my work, how I’m transitioning out of medicine, and why I want to do more film and creative work.

Lastly, however, Dr. Wayne Pernell and I discuss the power of anger and why it’s not always a bad thing. The truth is, when anger is properly utilized, it can be a great tool.

So sit back, relax, and take a listen. I’ll see you in the next one.

Some Questions I’m Asked:

  • How did you recover from hepatitis? (10:43)
