On this week’s episode, I sit down with Paloma Lynch.
Paloma, originally from Coolock, talks to me about even as a child she felt different and how her mind compelled her to act out, and how those actions lead her down a very dangerous path to heroin use and drug trafficking and eventually been sent to prison at just 17 years of age.
She talks about leaving prison for Cyprus to get away from everything but her mind still controlling her with other addictions and eating disorders.
After meeting James’s father John and the introduction to her liquid form of heroin – wine. Paloma headed down another dangerous path. Losing John to murder then losing her mind and nearly her life, Paloma went to rehab for the final time where she found her savior.
When Paloma come into my life nearly 20 years ago she was the most fragile person I have ever met and over the years even though we lost contact she was always on my mind you’ll have to forgive me the way I gush over her in this episode but she deserves it all and I’m so proud to have her back in my life and as a friend.
