Dispelling the Lie We Tell Ourselves

Today, we aired our second part of our two-part book club discussion. Today, Whitney Sheppard joined me to discuss her essay, "Do You Have Any Brothers or Sisters?," which appears in our July book club pick, "Voices of Caregiving, The Healing Companion, Stories for Courage, Comfort and Strength." You can listen to our discussion via the player, below.

In her essay and on our show, Whitney shared her struggle to find the words to describe her brother, Matthew, and her caregiving relationship to him. Our interview ended with some great words of advice from Whitney.  Her words came as she heeded others to speak honestly about the feelings that accompany caregiving with an empathetic support system.

"Don't believe the lie you tell yourself that you are alone," she said. "You're not."
