The perspective and relatability you’re looking for

Listening to Rosalina and Shauna makes you feel like you just got off the phone with your best friend.

This podcast is geared towards anyone and that’s what’s so great. Whether you have been diagnosed or are looking to expand you’re inclusivity to those who have been, they do a great job providing perspective while creating a community to foster education and support.

The episodes fly by and I can’t wait for them to release more!
