Owning It: Social Anxiety, Stammering and Self-Acceptance

In this episode, I am joined by my brother Daniel who experienced a social kind of anxiety brought on by his stammer. Daniel has had a stammer for as long as I can remember but I never knew quite how much it affected him and gave him anxiety until recent years (he’s in his mid 30s now) because he simply didn’t want to discuss it. To go from a fear of saying his name out loud to recording with me, he has come a long way and I’m so proud of him. I’ve learned so much from this episode about triumph in the face adversity and I hope you will too.
