How Did I Get Here? | Episode 2

How do you deal with an Interruptions in your life that contradict your culture, family upbringing and your personal plans when your sudden reality is my child has autism; my son is murdered and now there is COVID-19.


Society, family, and social media outlines the perfect life. You should be married, have a successful career with 2.5 children, a dog, and a house surrounded with  a white picket fence by the age of 25 and retired by the time your reach the age of 62... DONE! This was the inherited dream! However, if you want to make God laugh, tell him what you have already planned your life. 

What happens when  your plans are interrupted? How do you deal with life then? We are too often conditioned to inherit the hype from our upbringing to accept the traumas that occur in our lives and remain silent about the pain. What we neglect to respect and acknowledge is when our body screams out in pain.
 

Listen as we honestly discuss the tribulations of being the mother of a murdered son... a child with autism. And just when you think it’s safe to go back into the waters... COVID-19 appears.

Listen to how the hosts unfold our realities and share how we had to break-through stigmas and family traditions by understanding that healing 
involves peeling away the layers of conditional trauma and counseling is not unthinkable.
