Secrets We Share S1E9: SJ


SJ and I sat down on a windy, but sunny day in leafy Bungendore. She had the fire going and the dogs, Frodo and Frank keeping her company with cuddles and their easy-to-be-around energy. These Therapy Dogs in Training will make some people very happy.


We spoke about her recent diagnosis with Bipolar II and how in hindsight her past had been littered with the warning signs that went unheeded.



An international move and social isolation led to the most recent, but ultimately most helpful episode. Now with family and improved connections she can move forward and live a better life, fruit loops and all.




Thank you to SJ for allowing me into her home and sharing her secrets with me.


Thank you to Nick for being my podcast guru.
