Tell Us: What's the Trauma?

During our Monday evening podcast, Table Talk, my guests (@mseitzer and @cathyj) shared our experiences caring for a family member who suffered trauma. (Listen to our podcast.)

What trauma has your caree experienced? When my dad was 7, he attended a family function with his mom and uncle and returned to his home to discover his father had left the family. He never saw his father again. He and his brother navigated the rest of their childhood with a mentally ill mom. Understanding this as trauma is incredibly helpful as I do my best to support my dad today.

I also wonder: What's the trauma you've experienced? How do these traumatic experiences impact you and your caree today?

Please share your experiences with trauma in our comments section, below.
