July – Featured guest on the ‘Self Care with Gracy’ podcast. In this episode, Gracy & I delve into why caregiving is so hard and how utilizing self-care can help even the most over-extended caregiver find real relief. We share real life experiences of caring for sick and dying parents, and the ways we worked through our exhaustion, social isolation and the feelings of selfishness that arise when caregiving feels like too much. We talk about how to let yourself be an imperfect caregiver, the new habits caregivers must adopt and the ways to find support from others who know what you’ve been through. Please enjoy and share this important conversation so we can all learn how to use self-care to more effectively show up for each other during the inevitable hard moments of life.
