In Episode 187, I speak with Janae Watterson of Enumclaw, Washington who shares her mother’s death in a car accident when she was 17 and a passenger in the car. She talks about how it affected her intensely for decades and what she did on her road to recovery.
Janae graciously discussed in depth her relationship with her mother, the day she died, and how Janae threw herself into sports, her career and goals she set for herself.
It was when she became ill more often than usual, that she felt something was not right and reached out for a therapist, who made all the difference for her.
Watch my conversation with Janae below:
We also spoke about her relationship with her father and three sisters as well as with her husband, Ryan, who was her boyfriend at the time of her mother’s death and knew how devastating her grief was for her and his overwhelming support along this journey.
Below are some photos of Janae and her mother and Janae’s mother, which graces her office in Salon Kathleen.

Additional Notes – Some things that will help along this journey to ease the pain:
If you are having an especially difficult time emotionally, I recommend you speak with a specialist at a hotline near you. Here you will find hotlines all around the world. Trained counselors are there to listen, free of charge, to what’s going on with you. Take advantage of their great kindness. Vent with an objective individual. You don’t have to be ‘suicidal’ to call them, but if you are, that’s the best place to call. Don’t hestitate!
For parents and teens, there is an amazing resource where you can email or text counselors for help at The Boys Town National Hotline! Outstanding assistance for your children and you. You can also dial 988 for assistance.
Visit Julie’s EFT episodes on grief and she will teach you the Emotional Freedom Technique. Her videos calm your spirit and help you release emotional and physical pain as you move forward.
Here are some meditation music to help you rest.
You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy from most health food stores, either in person or online. Remember, these do have alcohol in them.
I use the Rescue Remedy 20ml drops but they have spray and other versions which might work better for you. And…they also have products to calm pets, too.
