You may feel overwhelmed all the time, or like your brain and mental/spiritual/physical challenges are a burden on not just your own self but the people around you, you may feel very alone and isolated with this, you may feel ashamed and uncomfortable talking about it to anyone for a million reasons both human and societal. That's okay. That's normal as f**k. Me too.
After a year of doing this podcast, I have realized the real point of My Good Bad Brain is letting each you know you're not the only crazy one. I'm the host, Jarrett Sleeper, and I have bad ADHD and depression I didn't get officially diagnosed until I was 32. I hope if you also have a good bad brain you and have found this podcast. just reading this will help you realize :
a) you're not alone, it's not that weird, a lot of other "crazy" people are out there and we're doing alright
b) your experiences and challenges are as REAL and VALID as they are shared, AND you also have the ability to shape your thoughts and actions and not only be okay but happy and thriving even with diagnosed mental disorders. (Undiagnosed as well, just because a doctor didn't tell me 'til I was 32 didn't mean I didn't have it!)
Through confessional brain breather solo episodes and incredibly honest, unedited conversations with other good bad brain havers, My Good Bad Brain is cultivating an invisible network of unique humans with shared experiences to create a sense of quiet solidarity for crazy people. While I can only speak for myself, but My Good Bad Brain has made being a person more possible for me and I aim to share this sense of possibility with anyone else who might need it.
Self - care, hydrate, be well.

kind and comforting

One of the toughest thing for me about living with depression and anxiety is how alone I tend to feel in my experiences. I spent a long time listening to very depressing music to cope with my ‘stuff’ but I don’t think it ever helped. I absolutely love My Good Bad Brain. it helps me articulate many of my complex and often hopeless feelings and most importantly makes me feel less alone in my struggles. Thank you for your help Jarrett <3 :-)

Great for anyone with a brain

This podcast is relatable on so many levels. The host has a great sense of humor and is so forthcoming and genuine about his own experiences which provides a sense of comfort for anyone in the midst of a mental struggle ( isn’t everyone?) while also sharing insights, some coping strategies, personal knowledge and hope on various mental health topics. The interviews with experts are so informative and insightful. I found the podcast while searching for content on ways to overcome derealization and depersonalization, and I found an episode that offered some hope in a different way to think about dpdr which has totally changed my perspective on it. Since then I’ve listened to almost every episode and I’m looking forward to more content. I’d recommend it for anyone on the journey to being the best human (with a brain) possible.

Feels like listening to a very good friend

I love this podcast so much. It's so validating to hear about his experience and those of his guests. I love how it's formatted, the interview episodes feel so organic and conversational. His solo episodes are great too and help me have more positive self talk and work through my feelings better. I'm very grateful for his show and look forward to more episodes.
