In this episode, Reilly takes on the role of the interviewer and guides us in an exploration of Michèle's story, including her experience with "mental illness", the family dynamics that may have contributed to Michèle's struggles, how her views of "mental illness" and "depression" have changed over time and how blogging with vulnerability has helped her heal.
Trigger warning: subject matter includes conversation around suicide and family/developmental trauma. Please take care while listening.
