The Mary Mac Show | Remembering Our Veterans

The Mary Mac Show PodcastIn Episode 101, we honor our veterans this week in the USA for all they have sacrificed for our freedom. We also remember veterans around the world who represent their country’s citizens.

Veterans are outstanding people.

They’ve sacrificed so much of their emotional, mental and physical strength for our benefit.

They’ve experienced horrors which we will never know and live with those traumas for many years after they leave the military.

Some have lost limbs, had permanent and temporary injuries, traumatic brain injuries as well as post traumatic stress disorder.

These injuries may take months or years to heal, if they ever do.

And their families welcome them home and help them endure the aftermath of illness, injury and war.

So on Veterans Day, this week on November 11th in the USA, and on your Veterans Day around the world, we thank those who put their lives on the line for our safety and freedom.

But we also thank their family and friends who love them and care for them as they recover.

Bless all of you!

The Mary Mac Show | Pet Loss II

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 86, we continue to speak about Pet Loss and the many situations you encounter after your beloved pet’s death.

Whether this might be the first time you have experienced a pet’s death or not, that lovable furbaby was a huge part of your life and helped you get through many difficult times.

They may have been there through the death of a significant person and you snuggled with them, cried in their coat, loved when them came to console you.

They were much more than just an animal; they were your constant companion through very sorrowful times.

If you find yourself struggling with whom to speak with about your pain, don’t trust yourself to reach out to someone who won’t be supportive of your grief. Many people can’t understand the extent of your grief for a pet; after all it’s just a cat, just a dog to them.

Rather, reach out to those who will understand your pain.

I’ve created a specific Pet Loss page on my website where you can find the best people who will honor your grief. Some organizations, like Veterinarian Medical Schools, have hotlines staffed by those studying to become Veterinarians.

You can also go to my Crisis Resource tab on this website, where you can call hotlines staffed by ready and waiting trained counselors all over the world, who are willing to listen to all your pain, after a pet’s or your favorite person’s death. USE THEM!!

There is no need to stuff your pain inside and isolate yourself when you can speak with someone who understands it.

Additional Notes:

Here are some meditation music to help you rest.

You can order your Bach’s Rescue Remedy by clicking on the link below and then tab at the top of their page for Rescue Remedy Products. 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.

The Mary Mac Show | Pet Loss I

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

Many of us are fortunate to have beloved pets that brighten our days and calm us when we are in pain.

This week in Episode 85, we discuss how we grieve after a pet’s death.

Whether this is our first pet’s death or not, or the amazing pet which was by our side through the painful death of a significant person in our life, losing a pet can be as difficult as losing another person.

And many people in our world simply don’t put as much emphasis on this loss and they do when a person dies.

But for animal lovers, our furbabies have taken us through many painful experiences and their death is overwhelming for us.

And we might struggle with who to talk to about this for fear they won’t understand.

Take the time to comfort yourselves. You need this.

The Mary Mac Show | Father’s Day

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 81, we remember our father and father figures who made an impact on our lives. We also discuss the pain of bereaved fathers, and father’s whose wives are struggling to bear children and fear they will never be called “Dad.”

The pain from a father’s death is often severe especially if we had a wonderful relationship with our Dads.

But, sometimes, our relationship wasn’t as we would expect and we struggle with the ‘what if’s’ and perhaps guilt that may bring.

Yet whatever the relationship, good or bad, that we had with him, we must forgive ourselves and even moreso him for what you needed that you didn’t get, for what you and he said to each other that stung, and all the unfinished business that might still linger that neither of you can do anything about anymore.

We also recognize all the father figures who raised you and cared for you if your Dad died younger than expected.

And we also talk about bereaved fathers who have buried their child, children or even all their children.

Lastly, we look at men who struggle to have children with their wives, those who experience a miscarriage or stillborn child, as well as those who deal with infertility and/or the knowledge that they may never have children of their own. We also remember men who are older now and wished they had children years ago when it was more practical, or those who never found the right women to raise a family.

This can be a very melancholy day for some. Let us acknowledge them all.

Additional Notes:

Visit Crisis Connections at my website to telephone a trained counselor to speak with whenever you are feeling overwhelmed, confused, frightened, fearful or any host of emotions.

Use the Emotional Freedom Technique for Healing.

You can watch Marissa Peer’s “I Am Enough” meditation.

Treat yourself to a lovely gift from our Heart of Gold “I Remember” Products from The Mary Mac Store.

Remember, a portion of all proceeds help fund The Foundation for Grieving Children, Inc., the first national non-profit public charity which benefits children, teens, young adults after a loved one’s death which I established many years ago.
