The Mary Mac Show | Dealing with Anger

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 95, we discuss the various individuals we feel anger toward after a loved one’s death and ways to handle it.

Not everyone who is grieving with feel anger.

But of those who do, it can range from mild to seriously significant.

This anger can actually severely affect the bereaved’s emotional, mental and physical health.

You might be one of them.

And if you are, I want you to take your anger very seriously because we don’t want you to become ill from this.

Yes, you might believe you have a right to feel this way for one reason or another.

But, often, the person you’re feeling anger at, doesn’t even know how mad you might be at them.

So the person hurting is you. And only you.

Please listen in to this week’s episode so you can gain more knowledge about this issue.

Bless you my friend.
xoxo

The Mary Mac Show | Dealing with Stress

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 93, we look at how stress affects us during the grieving process and techniques that will help us bring calm to our lives.

When we are grieving, many survivors deal with stress as their lives unravel and uncertainty takes hold.

What they knew as their life before, is no longer there for them.

Whether they lost a husband, wife, father, mother, sister, brother, daughter, son or other significant person in their life, life as they once knew it will never be the same.

And so stress starts to creep up and confusion takes over as they try to figure out what needs to be done for the funeral, for their family, for themselves to survive this tragedy.

Whether the person was ill and expected to die, or was taken in an accident, sudden death or violence, their world has changed and it will take a long time to regroup and find a new way to live day by day.

In this episode we speak about how to handle stress as we make our way through the fog and beyond.

There is so much to do. So many decisions.

With help and time, these will be made.

But it is imperative to manage your stress so you can safely move through these times with your health.

Bless you my friend.

The Mary Mac Show | Grieving For Our Infertility

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 89, we discuss the grief of not being able to get pregnant, the isolation when we choose not to share this with others, and alternatives some couples decide to take to build a family.

Most couples expect that when they decide to bring a new life into the world to add to their family, that it will be seamless. It will be easy and pregnancy will occur once they no longer use contraception.

Yet for many couples they are shocked when they have been disappointed for many months.

Specialists believe that when a couple cannot naturally conceive within a year of trying, they are then considered infertile.

And the grief that comes with that knowledge is one that is unexpected and sometimes, disenfranchised because as they proceed, they tend not to share this knowledge with others in the hope that pregnancy will occur in another month or so.

But during this time, they can feel isolated because they don’t want the entire world to know their pain and troubles.

In Episode 89, we discuss the pain of infertility and various options couple take toward having their own family.

Not being able to have your own family is, by far, a grief no one expects to endure.

Sending you my love. xoxo

The Mary Mac Show | Grieving the Death of a Sibling

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 88, we discuss our feelings and pain after the death of a sister or brother, stepsister or stepbrother, the nuances of our relationship and how to help ourselves through the grieving process.

A sibling’s death is a very painful and usually unexpected death.

We knew them almost all our lives, were brought up together, loved each other through thick and thin.

We expected to grow old with them, raise our children together, go on vacations together, enjoy family gatherings together for holidays, events and other life events.

We expected that they would be there for us when we had difficulty emotionally because most times they were our go-to person growing up and now that they’ve died or were killed, whom do we turn to when times become hard.

Experiencing the death of a brother, sister, stepbrother or stepsister, whom we were raised with, is something that shocks us to our core.

This was not supposed to happen.

Our parents were supposed to die first, not them!

Listen in to today’s episode to learn more about your responses and others’ reactions after you’ve experienced a sibling’s death.

Your grief will be intertwined with your sister or brother-in-law’s who lost their spouse, your parents who have now lost a child, and your grandparents who have lost a grandchild.

Also remember your own spouse and children may be highly affected too.

Sending you my love. xoxo
