Caregiver Sandwiches and Who Lives Like This?!
Have I told you how much fun it is doing the Who Lives Like This?! podcast? Honestly, if I made money doing it, it'd be a dream job. My partner Jason Lehmbeck and I get to talk to the most amazing people and have funny (sometimes hilarious) informative conversations not just about caregiving and our unique situations but also about life itself. This week's podcast was with Laura LeBrun Hatcher. We covered a bunch of topics -- what it means to be a caregiver of a child with complex medical needs, "The Caregiver Sandwich" when you are taking care of a child with special needs and aging parents, genetic testing and grappling with diagnoses. Laura is a designer as well, the head of communications for the amazing advocacy group Little Lobbyists (did you know that they were instrumental in maintaining the Affordable Care Act last year?) and -- well -- the list goes on. I hope you'll listen to the podcast, leave a review for it and share it with your friends and family. I'll give you a prize if you come back here after listening and answer this question in a comment:
WHAT TYPE OF CHEESE WOULD I BE IN A CAREGIVER SANDWICH?
