In this podcast, people share their stories & living experiences on this topic.
A Valid Podcast is a great series on different aspects of cognitive disability. Their most recent episodes feature folks who have experience with dating & being a partner discussing what’s been good about it and what’s been difficult. The episodes don’t shy away from tough subjects like unwanted attention, assault, and overly-possessive partners. But guests are also clear about the joy that dating has brought to their lives, how they’ve healed from the bad experiences, and the intense loneliness they feel when they want a partner but don’t have one.
