Why Forever Is Okay

This afternoon, Trish joined me on Your Caregiving Journey to discuss her book, Forever a Caregiver, our October Caregiving Book Club pick. You can listen to our discussion via the player below.

Trish’s book details her childhood with a mom who suffered from severe depression and a father who lived the highs and lows of bipolar disease. It’s a story of cigarette smoke, suicide attempts and broken hearts.

It’s also a story of accepting the messiness, as Trish calls it, of family in order to enjoy its blessings. As an adult, Trish and her mom become best friends. It’s a relationship that cancer ends much too soon.

And yet it’s not a book about self-pity or blame. Her book looks back at her family’s struggles with honesty and humor. It’s really a story of how we take the good with the bad and learn somehow to see that it all can be just right.

You’ll enjoy listening to Trish talk about her book, which took 10 years to complete. And, you’ll love her book, which you can buy here. Use coupon code BURIED to save 20%.

    I so enjoyed the interview – thank you.

    Trish I am so impressed (and in awe) of how you sincerely expressed forgiveness for what you endured at such a young age. I love how you talked about your parents doing their best.

    Thank you for sharing your story and your book with us!
