    Ep 050 - "My Child's ADHD: A Parent's Journey.” Written by Joshua Young and Read by Sasha Young - A Between The Lines Blog Club Series

    This is episode #50, where Sasha Young will read her husband Joshua Young's adapted blog post entitled “My Child's ADHD: A Parent's Journey.”
     “Between The Lines” episodes are written by guests who prefer to use their written voice instead of their interview voice to share their stories. Each author has submitted a blog, and then either I, Ange, Joshua, our resident author, an actor or actress, or in this instance, Joshua's wife, will read and record it for them. 
    As a reminder, the views expressed in any blog are the views of the author, and the purpose is to provide a safe place for the author's voice to be heard. 
    So, what are we waiting for? Fill up your coffee, sit back and let's get started.

    Ep 045 - Caron Shares Her Experience, Strength, & Hope

    Ep 045 - Caron Shares Her Experience, Strength, & Hope

    Summary
    Caron shares her story of childhood abuse, addiction, and the challenges she has faced in her life. She discusses her experiences with eating disorders, abusive relationships, and the estrangement from her son. Despite the hardships she has endured, Caron remains hopeful and believes in finding true love and healing. She encourages others who are struggling with addiction or trauma to seek help and offers her support. The conversation highlights the impact of childhood trauma on mental health and the importance of understanding and compassion.
    Takeaways
    Childhood trauma can have a significant impact on mental health and can contribute to addiction and other challenges later in life. Judging someone based on their struggles or experiences is unfair and fails to consider the underlying trauma they may have endured. Healing and recovery are possible with the right support and resources. Finding love and happiness is still possible, even after experiencing trauma and addiction. Donate Today:
