    Going through the motions of Imposter Syndrome

    Episode 6 is with me your host Angie. I want to thank you for being here. This is from a very personal lens, experience and is in no way meant to be for sympathy or inspirational. I am one out of many that have had back to back hardships and like many, I have come to see it as a whole. I am learning new things in this work and its been in forms of learning how to edit audio or photography. All of it is a part of my growth. Even during this episode I was battling sharing this 9 minute snippet of my life and how far I've come with my doubts and fears on my identity.
     
     QUESTIONS:
     Have you heard of unmasking?
     Do you(disabled person)believe this is fully possible, a journey and work in progress or something you aren't sure you see for yourself?
     If you are a family or friend of a disabled person, are you listening to those with these lived experiences and has this conversation come up at all?

    COMING SOON >>>>>>>> As I am learning how to edit audio, photography, filing and more, I have started a merch line called "Beyond the Stigmas" that will feature a phrase we have been using for a year that has helped my family with their own self advocacy and voice as neurodivergents. "Ask me how I'm functioning", merch is launching soon to raise funds to support future content and work that I am doing and mutual aid funds that will go directly to individuals in need in our communities.

    My next guest on that Denielle and I have been wanting to record this episode that dives a bit deeper into the experiences of neurodivergent parents. I would agree with the no, healing isn't linear. 
    Talking with Denielle about her lived experiences(where I read more about on "Love what matters")has shown me that being a neurodivergent parent, isn't just about our differences and struggles. I am looking forward to communicating about some of my personal takes and actions that I'd like to explore of that with other parents and a variety of divers expertise and actual studies by the disabled.
    I appreciate all guest who come on to talk with me so far on this platform considers supporting our guest by clicking the links below.

    Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/discoverspectrum/support.     

    Wanting to be accepted or heard is a universal experience and desire.           
    Understanding ourselves can be one of the ways we connect with others.                           
    My next guest Justin, is doing exactly that.    He created his own space in the Autistic community and shares how stimming is completely natural. Along with words that are felt and create awareness of the neurodivergent experience through poetry  We talk about being parents, social challenges and relationships.                   
    This was a really flowy talk!

    There are autistic parents of autistic children who find their kid's diagnosis seperate from who they are. It's said that there must be a way to cure Autism thus labeling Autism to be something of a disease. There's plenty of stigma but through getting diagnoses for her toddler and baby in 2020, Tabitha Cabrera (Women, Mother, Wife, Lawyer, Author, and Advocate) decided to learn past the stigma. We talk about her starting a talk show that rooted from her expressing herself when it was discovered her son is Autistic, the journey that her and her brother (Animator) had creating an amazing children's book together about different forms of communication, and some of the future projects that have rooted from her opening up to listening to Autistic adults and the families who are raising neurodivergent individuals. Her show has given me insight and I am honored to introduce to you someone who desires to learn  and mainly love and embrace her children and family with all that she has.

    Facing cultural stigma being Neurodivergent

    Facing cultural stigma being Neurodivergent

    The functioning labels of low and high are rattling in conversation throughout the Neurodiverse community. If there are any doubts that these labels are harmful, let me introduce you to Mrinal. Mrinal is a South Asian American women who was overlooked for the diagnosis of Autism & Adhd due to her parents having one view point of what Autism is since their son, who her parents describe as an someone is limited in verbal speech . He also takes pharmaceuticals which later in life she would come to use but was told that she doesn't display certain behaviors like her brother therefore, she would become dependant on them, in turn invalidating her need for them for ADHD. We talk more about how she came to a diagnosis and her journey of understanding and accepting her needs and how important it was to make the connection with the mental health stigma within the South Asian community surrounding mental health which was a contributing factor to not understanding to her neurodivergent self. Being the second episode of Diverse Talk, it was truly an honor to have Mrinal on and can't wait to hear from you listener about what you felt with this episode!!

    The Neurodiverse Perception of Creating: Inspiring your own thoughts

    The Neurodiverse Perception of Creating: Inspiring your own thoughts

    Being the first episode of Diverse Talk, I wanted to have Owen Nichols(my fiance) with me, to have one of our many talks about some of our beliefs, and stands as neurodiverse individuals who like to spark up conversations about unpopular topics such as, capitalism. We dive more into capitalism, the uprising of "Thee Influencer" and how it can eventually muddle the value of the content being produced(hear this out), the seemingly odd belief of civil rights for all humans in minority groups and one of my favourite parts explained in this episode by Owen, being that "art is not art yet, unless it's been viewed."

      Leave me a voice message or a review, responding to today's episode question!!! I'd love to hear from you and connecting with you.

    Also this is where you can check out the post for supporting our fundraiser for ASAN(Autistic Self Advocacy Network) to raise $100.00 for the next 30 days. $1.00 from each listener can really help the ongoing funding this organization has created to provide thing's like employment, Autistic identity, college, supports and services.
