The Mary Mac Show | Bereaved Mothers Podcast Series | Death of a Young Adult

In Episode 181, we continue our Bereaved Mothers Podcast Series featuring Raina of Southern California whose son Josiah had been diagnosed with cancer at 20 yet succumbed to a motorcycle accident at age 29.

A true creative, Josiah knew early in life that he wanted to perform.

And that’s exactly what he did.

But at the age of 20 he was having trouble breathing and a visit to the hospital proved a difficult diagnosis – hodgkins lymphoma.

Yet that didn’t stop Josiah.

He did everything he knew to cure his body through natural medicine, good food and much more.

And he succeeded.

And along the way, he learned flute and became a massage therapist.

Yet it was a motorcycle accident that ultimately took his life which was never expected.

In this episode, I am honored to welcome Raina Irene, Josiah’s mother, who shares her story of his life, diagnosis and death and with the wonderful support of her husband, Richard and children, Jeremy and Valerie, have coped with his death.

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.

*To find a homeopathic doctor, visit here or here. Many offer phone consultations if you cannot find one in your area. They work with patients around the globe. You can also research in your area of the world.
