Traumaversaries... those terrible anniversaries of traumatic events. As parents of medically complex of disabled children, we all have them, often linked to medical trauma that our families have experienced.
So often, the feelings that come up on these days feel overwhelming and unavoidable. But you are not alone. Today, I’m sharing my conversation with Hailey Adkisson and Madhura Katre, two moms of medically complex daughters, about how we handle our traumaversaries. We cover tips to get through these rough anniversaries, how to give yourself grace about managing the rough days however you need to, and how we appreciate when those traumaversaries finally start to feel a little less triggering.
I hope you feel seen, held, and understood after listening to this episode. I know I did, and I’m so honored to share it with you. Happy listening, friends.
