Marie’s daughter has borderline personality disorder. The modern term for it is emotional disregulation disorder. The problem is compounded with alcohol addiction. Marie is at her wits end. She wants to see if any other listener has been through the same thing and if they would be interested in setting up a support group. She tells Joe her story.
Jimmy Callely is a victim of crime. His daughter Rachel O’Reilly was murdered 9 years ago. He was never an advocate of the death penalty. He is now.
Rene is 87. She fell last week on the footpath in Rathmines, Dublin. She was left covered in blood. She says that people are quick to run down young people but she wants to thank 3 young men who came to her aid. They were brilliant.
Patsy has 7 kids under the age of 13. She recently went to the UK to buy a 9 seater van to transport her family. She was shocked when she was told that the tax on the car would be nearly €2,500. Larger families don’t get any concessions.
