How Do I Blend My Family
Play • 44 min

What makes a family? It’s not just one mom, one dad, 2.5 kids and miscellaneous pets. And when it comes to blending families, you’re also blending their own experiences, insecurities and personalities. It’s not easy, and parents don’t always have the answers! So we asked the (now grown-up) baby of a big, blended family to help us out.

Ep. 58 - His wife attempted suicide | Adam Buck
This episode is a continuation of the previous one, so if you didn’t listen to it, please do. Mequell’s husband, Adam Buck talks about his side of their story: how he coped with her suicide attempt and all the changes they had to make so that the family could break free from an unhealthy lifestyle. One of the things he shared was a daily fear he had every time he left home. When driving off to work, he would think: “Will she make it?” When referring to daily chores and work obligations, he feels that although he would say that the family was the most important thing in his life, it wasn’t until Mequell survived her suicide attempt that he realized he needed to change as well, otherwise, they wouldn’t make it. “I was tested to see if I would put her before all these other things, and I failed.” This interview is valuable to all those who deal with mental illness among friends and family members.

Who Cares? (Part 4): Care During COVID
Caregiving has always been hard work, and heart work. It has always been challenging, rewarding, grueling and life-giving. It has always been work worth doing, and work whose worth is challenged, or hard to quantify. And adding COVID to the mix…didn’t help. This episode is filled with stories from caregivers; people who were thrust into this role by COVID, or found the role further complicated by COVID. It is a reminder that you are not alone, even when you are bone-achingly lonely. An piece of recognition and appreciation for all of you. A few additional things: Our friends at Still Kickin have *two* upcoming caregiver workshops to help you find connection and support.
