Thank you!

Well spoken. Soothing voice. Relatable across generation and gender. We are a scattered minority and we need to amplify more voices like this to drown out the medieval nonsense so many "educated people" still believe. The discrimination is real and people like you give us strength.

Totally me

Thank you! I was considering ADHD at the request of my daughter, I’m certain that’s her deal. Mine is this. I have a great therapist who helps me with this

Such a Gift

I experience more grace and understanding and learn more about coping skills from this podcast than I did in therapy. The Ruminations episode is one I will turn to again when I get stuck in spirals of thought. I'm grateful for the empathy and her willingness to share private thoughts and feelings with us.
