Fidget

Who knew my BFRB was something I could laugh about?!As someone with a BFRB, I'm all too familiar with failure. My BFRB knocked me down every single day. But after 10 years of shame and isolation, I now want to celebrate the two things that have helped me the most on my journey: community and compassion. Fidget is a monthly podcast for your BFRB toolbox. https://www.fidgetpodcast.com/ Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
