Welcome to A Perfectly Imperfect Journey with Sue Ryan
Are you caregiving and feeling exhausted, mentally, physically, or emotionally? How about “all of the above?” Do you feel like you should be doing more and aren't sure what “more” looks like? Are you overwhelmed and not sure what to expect next?
Congratulations! You're on a perfectly imperfect journey. In this episode, I chat with best-selling author, Sue Ryan, who is caring for her husband. Like most of us, she didn't know anything about Alzheimer's or how to be a caregiver. Sue constantly felt overwhelmed and as if she were missing something. She was exhausted mentally, physically, and emotionally (sound familiar?). She was only surviving. She didn't like this disease, what it was doing to her husband and those around them.
She didn't like how she felt, so she began to learn. That lead her to write Our Journey of Love – 5 Steps to Navigate Your Caregiving Journey. For more than 30 years, Sue has been in various caregiving roles. Still in the role of primary caregiver, instead of feeling helpless and overwhelmed, Sue now feels balanced, filled with hope and love.
