Recent appearance on The Beautiful Side of Grief Podcast | Caregiving and RAINBOWS | Sheila Clemenson

From The Beautiful Side of Grief Podcast:

“I truly believe caregivers are unsung heroes! That is why it is a privilege to talk with Sheila Clemenson who became a caregiver for her husband early into their relationship at the age of 26, when he was diagnosed with ALS. In this raw, authentic conversation we talk abut some of the tougher aspects of being a caregiver – the people pleasing trait, the guilt, the lack of self-care, and what happens after your loved one transitions. We also talk about getting a support network around us, finding the beauty in grief, the happiness, and allowing ourselves to have hope and dreams once again. If you’ve been having it tough in your grief, chances are you will have no problem connecting with this episode or with Sheila’s recently released book – Over The Rainbow: From the Depths of Grief to Hope.
