Hopefully you’re ready to listen to me deal with my own internal issues. My therapist suggested I’d talk more about my own diagnosis so here we are. My personal sensory overload withs differently from Kris’ but I’m still very grateful he came on the show to talk so openly about his autism.
For example, we talk about overstimulation at concerts, being an autistic parent and how music can make everything just that little bit easier. Because when there is so much going on around you, you’d think music would only add to the chaos. Kris explains how his experience relates to this.
To be honest, I hoped this conversation would magically melt away all thought and doubts i had about my own diagnosis. Obviously it doesn’t work that way. However, if you’re dealing with some kind of neurodiversity, i hope this episode will help you. Even if it’s just a little bit.
