“Once you become an addict, everything else that you’ve done in your life is kind of disqualified in other people’s minds. And that’s how you’re defined.”
Amber joins me on today’s show to talk about how her younger sister’s death from a heroin overdose four years ago led to where she is currently. Amber shares everything with me about her sister’s life, including her bipolar diagnosis, how she got into drugs, feeling like a mother to her, and the final weeks leading up to her surprising death. She also discusses the aftermath: feeling suicidal, seeking professional help, and eventually overcoming depression.
Through all this, we also chat about bipolar medication, her relationship to her podcast co-host Ashley, edibles, prison, and doing a podcast.
