Episode 50 – It is OK Not To Be OK

A conversation between Sophie Hostombe and Paul Garrigan 

In this episode of the podcast, Sophie shares her ideas about why it is OK not to be OK. Those recovering from an addiction can sometimes feel uncomfortable about admitting that life has become a bit of a struggle – this may be because they don’t want to appear negative or incapable. The danger with this is that pretending that things are fine  can mean not getting the support that is needed to deal with the situation.
