Ahhh fellow dyslexic :)

I love this podcast:) I just started listening and as a fellow creative dyslexic so many of your episodes resonate with me. I’d love to see you do an episode on your childhood. What it was like growing up with this dyslexia. Any funny stories. Or any ways your teachers tried to teach you in an alternative way but that just ended up embarrassing you! I’m still new to your podcast so I have lot of catching up. So if you already talked about those forgive me :)

Dyslexia or Comorbid Mental/Substance Abuse

Thank you for your podcast and I will continue to listen. So I identify with this podcast a lot as I have dyslexia but I also have been diagnosed with other mental health disorders. I am also in recovery 2 years 5 months sober as an active member of A.A. Stephen I am not a doctor but I hear a lot of mental health and possibly substance abuse in your podcasts. There certainly appears to be more than dyslexia going on. Stay safe and well.
God bless you!

The Best Adult Dyslexia Resource

As a 28 year old female, currently interviewing for physician assistant graduate programs, I was looking to understand the way my mild/moderate dyslexia impacts my life as a young adult. I wanted to strengthen my understanding of my strengths/weaknesses and how I learn best prior to re-entering an educational environment. I am so incredibly grateful to stumble upon this invaluable resource. The host is a wonderful human that continues to blows my mind every podcast with how perfectly he delivers/targets the information I needed/wanted but didn’t have a clue I needed/wanted. His unique, insightful and genuine information/encouragement has helped me to better understand myself, accept my weaknesses and mostly realize my strengths. In my opinion this podcast is an absolute essential for any adult with dyslexia (mild-severe) looking for a calming, insightful friend to discuss how dyslexia has impacted them and what strategies they are trying to implement in an effort to maximize their quality of life. Honestly, overall just so impressed - This is the first podcast that I actually check daily for the next episode.

Sincerely, thank you for your honesty and for sharing your invaluable information, insight and encouragement. It has helped me restore my self confidence through a newfound genuine understanding of myself-the good, the bad, and the dyslexia. Truly Priceless.
