"You carry the guilt as a mum, 'Am I affecting them? Am I going to cause damage?'"

Episode 84:

We're back! This month we're straight talking Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). We talk to Emily who tells us about her history of depression and self harm that goes back to when she was 14, the eating order that developed after putting on weight after the birth of her child, the difficulties of parenting and how MBSR helped her to deal with it all.

With restrictions lifting in Ireland, Allan & Peter both plan trips away. Peter is smiling as he hits another parenting landmark (losing the first tooth) but he's suffering "PTSB". Allan's client work has him smiling and riling, as he is saddened by the adults that have suffered throughout their life with undiagnosed autism.
