Warning: Ep97 includes discussions about suicide and domestic violence.
Sarah was born last of six siblings in a house dominated by alcoholism and other mental illness. When her brothers and sister grew up and moved out, she was left to navigate the storm by herself. She’s always been close with her siblings – the way people are sometimes bonded together by trauma. But now, as Sarah tries to survive and give grace in her own alcoholic marriage, her siblings don’t understand why she doesn’t apply the lessons of their past to her present. As Sarah explains, that’s exactly what she’s trying to do. Her’s is a story of pain, misunderstanding, love and fading hope. It’s the story of an unspeakable choice no one should ever have to make.
