For The Love of ASMR

Hey there Wonderful Listeners!

I’m gotta say, I’m a bit nervous about this one. But I’m gonna talk about it anyway! So have I secret I wish to share… I have this condition. It’s not terminal, fatal or anything like that. It’s not bad but it is a weird one. Let me just say that I’m weird to begin with!
