Turnabout is fair play they say, so.....
Join me as I have a conversation with the most important male voice you will ever hear on this podcast, my son Charlie.
The day I recorded the Neuroversity episode with Grace, we came home from the studio and Charlie said,
"Mom, when will you interview me?"
And, in my mind, I thought to myself
"He's not neurodivergent, does his voice and experience need to be elevated?"
I mean, talk about a small umbrella!
Charlie shares with us his experience with anxiety and depression, why he thinks mental health needs to be talked about more, and how he believes that his brain is neurodivergent. He also introduces us to a brand new word, Danxiety.
After hearing from Charlie, I believe, neurodivergent umbrellas will open wider and see that the more we include, the better for us all.
