I’m not so terrible am I?!

I just listened to the episode about intrusive thoughts with Kimberly Quinlan from 2017.... so good! I can so relate to so many things and it makes me feel so much better about myself. I’m not so terrible after all.... I hope?!

Great show

Great stories, and makes you feel less alone. Heads up though, there’s no trigger warnings, and the surveys can get really dark. For the people that get triggered easily.

outstanding honesty

I heard about this via Dan Harris "10% Happier" podcast and am very thankful I discovered it. The outstanding honesty and touching disclosures of both the host and guests are some of the hardest-hitting content I've encountered. I suspect I'm not alone in finding comfort, companionship and a sense of community being part of Paul's audience. Further, I hope I'm not alone in extending financial support, since I believe this endeavour is worth more than just one's time.

As a recovered Catholic, I humbly bow down in worship before "The Mental Illness Happy Hour"; dog bless you, Paul!
