Our Birth Stories. The Missed Milestones. The Comparison Game. Finding and Maintaining Child Care. Worries about Siblings. Our Jobs as Lifeguards, Therapists, Doctors, Researchers, Teachers, and General Contractors. Navigating Social Situations. Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes!!! Can you relate to one or EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of these issues that caretakers experience? In today’s podcast I talk with Kelly Jones, parent in our community and therapist, about the effect of care giving on the mental health of parents in the special needs community. And what special about this podcast is that there’s no toolkit (of course, of course, we do provide some strategies and ideas for healing). Rather, the purpose of this episode is *community* - for you to feel our community, the togetherness, the connection. I promise that you’ll listen to this episode and feel better for at least one reason. You are not alone. We’re all in this together. Please enjoy!
