The Bubble Hour S9E7 Séan McCann and Andrea Aragon

https://www.blogtalkradio.com/bubblehour/2021/02/16/sean-mccann-and-andrea-aragon

Séan McCann and Andrea Aragon co-wrote their story of marriage and recovery in the memoir, “One Good Reason.” 

Séan McCann rose to fame as a founding member of the multimillion-selling folk group Great Big Sea. For two decades they reigned as Canada’s best-loved party band, but all of that performing and partying allowed Séan’s alcoholism to flourish in plain sight as he drank to cope with the long-buried pain of childhood abuse by a trusted family priest—a secret he kept until 2014 when he shared his truth and began using his music and stage presence as a mental health advocate.

“One Good Reason” includes the parallel narrative of Séan’s wife, Andrea Aragon. Her balancing insights give this memoir extraordinary insights into the nuanced and complex effect of addiction on the family.

The Bubble Hour S9 E6 Deb’s Story

https://www.blogtalkradio.com/bubblehour/2021/02/09/debs-story-sober-life-with-bpd

Looking back, Deb can see that she was self-medicating mental health problems with alcohol. When she entered a partial hospitalization program to assess and treat her symptoms of anxiety and depression, it was necessary to address the issue of alcohol use disorder that had developed as a result. 

She describes quitting alcohol as ‘low hanging fruit’ that made way for prescription drugs and therapy to work more effectively. Deb’s diagosis is Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), sometimes called ’emotional hypersensitivity.’ She says that with BPD, “every emotion feels like a knife to the chest.”

The Bubble Hour S9E5 Kelly’s Story

https://www.blogtalkradio.com/bubblehour/2021/02/01/kellys-story

Kelly created a self-image as a party girl that became eventually an uncomfortable way to live. Self-centered partners who also drank problematically appeared one after another. She leaned on others for her self-worth and thought, “if you like me then I’m less broken.” Now she realizes that her biggest relationship problem was with herself.

Today Kelly is standing in her authenticity and learning to love and appreciate herself as a sober woman.

“It’s one of the best things that I’ve ever done for myself.”

“Therapy is like peeling the layers back trying to get to the root issue, because if you don’t get to the root out you’re likely to relapse. It’s really painful drudging up all of the old stuff but after suppressing it for so long, there was just so much to work through…

“I’ve gotten comfortable in my own skin and actually enjoy being around myself so I don’t have this desperate need to be with somebody like I always had.”
