Blog:Neuro Wonderful- Hello Amythest!  I just heard you on CBC radio right now. Thank you so much for sharing yourself and thank you for taking the courage to talk about yourself (that kind of courage anyone who lives and breathes would be always in need of more!). I learned a lot about what I don't know, and I hope to be a better person for it. I can't thank you enough for helping everyone understand more about our beautiful group of humans living on earth these days!

Blog:Neuro Wonderful- Hey Amethyst. Just want to say that your radio segment here in BC was so amazing to listen to! Just finished listening with my girlfriend, Skyla. She's also autistic and has joint hypermobility. It's not often that she hears someone on the radio talk about stuff really relevant to her. Especially with so little supports in her life currently. Thank you!  – Sam
