Tuesday Facebook notified me of a friendly little message from a woman name Kaitlyn. She had seen my post asking for people to tell me their stories and decided to answer the call. All of her life she has been fighting her ADHD. She has been dealing with the stigma behind her disorder and her medication since she was a small child. Even with all of this, she wanted to share her struggles with me on my podcast! It was such an honor to hear her story and what she goes through every day.
This was my first interview over discord. So far all of my guests have been family members so I have been able to just record them in person. I’m so excited that I got to do this. The sound quality was better then I had expected, though we had some connection issues and the sounds cut out for a few parts. Regardless, I enjoyed this conversation very much and thought that it would be a great addition to our empathy story.
Before we go I have some exciting things I would like to share about the future of our podcast. Starting in February I will be highlighting a different charity every month. I will be doing this through out 2019 and hopefully throughout the future of this podcast. The focus will mostly be in Arkansas since that’s where I’m from, but I would love to branch out and bring awareness to any charity or non-profit that is helps people. If you have any you would like me to highlight please let me know!
