In each episode of Home Truths Wendy visits the homes of ordinary people. They share with her extraordinary stories of their life, as unconquered heroes who live quietly in our neighbourhoods. Produced in association with Podcast One.
Kirsten has a brain aneurism. It’s like a ticking time bomb in her head and means that something as simple as a sneeze could end her life. Kirsten shares her experience, with host Wendy Searle, of the strange feeling of living with a death sentence while being busy as a mum and wife, and how grief-counselling sessions became part of her family’s new normal. Kirsten shares the perspective this strange experience has given her on life, with surprising humour, and explains her new found courage to ‘live honestly’.
