Fiona O’Loughlin is an Australian stand-up comedian and Author, find her on twitter @FionaOLoughlin_
She came to my house one afternoon last week, with a documentary crew in tow - as she’s been filming the last few years of her life’s journey which will become a film before too long.
Fiona has an incredible story. I will let her tell most of it, however it’s important to know how incredible her Comedy Career is, and what it means for someone of her profile to talk openly about the struggles she’s faced.
In this conversation, Fiona and I talk really openly about sobriety, addiction, recovery and hope.
If there’s anything in this chat that strikes a chord with you, don’t forget that there’s a lot of help right around the corner. In fact unless you’re in super-outback Australia, I’d hedge a bet that you can find a group of like-minded people who are willing and ready to help you in your very own suburb.
I know this because I am someone who is in recovery who’s found help through a community of people that offered the help when I asked for it, and you don’t have to look very far to find that help when you’re ready to stop living the same day again and again.
I can’t thank Fiona enough for coming on the show, and she’s the perfect guest for this, the 200th episode of the show.
