grief

Andrew Augulo600x600In the summer of 2009, Andrew crashed his motorcycle that left him with a T7 spinal cord injury. He continued on despite the changes to his life and began putting his experiences online through his YouTube channel: “Angl747″. He just wanted to make videos about the things he did and the places he went and those experiences to share with the online community. He also thought, what if there was more I can try to do? The name, DisabledLifeMedia.com is a name he kicked around but the word “disabled” legibly implies “incapacitation” and he didn’t like being referred to as “disabled”. In fact, he struggled with it after his injury and even though he knew he would most likely always be referred to as “disabled” from society standards,he realized that the word can have a profound affect on the way he looked at himself, the way he is looked at, and how our community as a whole, is perceived. But he is not and our disabled community is not incapacitated, they are “THIS-Abled” to do what they strive for and that is how he ended up crossing out the “dis” and placing “this” above it. Having the opportunity to do what he loves and contribute to the community by involving people with disabilities, is truly a remarkable feeling for him. Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver’s Caregiver, author of numerous articles and books, speaker, life coach, and radio talk-show host for caregivers who are burned out, but his most important role is being a caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene, who’s speech impaired and paralyzed on the right side from a stroke in 1996. His radio show, and his latest book, “The Caregiver’s Caregiver; A Guide To Avoiding Burnout” was written to help caregivers avoid burnout and survive the grief process.

Caregivers, Want To Increase Your Peace & Happiness? Dr. Todd Fisher Interview

Dr. Todd learned at the age of 28 that he had most of the traits of attention deficit disorder (ADD) and then later a type of dyslexia. Finally, he thought, there was a reason for his thoughts and actions over the years! Since then, he discovered what works for him, and so he helped many others to harness their own gifts. He found what worked to increase brain performance and how to increase productivity. He practiced as a psychotherapist and consultant for over 10 years and today he is committed to practicing as a consultant and executive coach assisting entrepreneurs, leaders, and companies to increase performance and happiness. This formula also works very well with caregivers to increase their happiness. Contact him at www.DrToddFisher.com Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, author of numerous articles and books, speaker, life coach, and radio talk-show host for caregivers who are burned out, but his most important role is being a caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene. His latest book that he is now working on is entitled: The Caregiver's Caregiver, A Guide to Avoiding Burnout. It is designed to teach caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones (due to an illness or disability) how to take care of themselves FIRST.

Being a Caregiver to an Undeserving Parent, Christopher Rausch Interview


What do you do when your parent needs care, but doesn't deserve it? Christopher was a caregiver to his mom before she died of cancer. He really didn't WANT to take care of her, but he felt that he HAD to take care of her, even though she didn't really take care of him as a child and teenager very well. With his father nowhere in sight, his mother nearly gave him up for adoption. Instead, she struggled to provide a life for him while battling multiple psychiatric disorders. Because of her struggle to keep a job, he went from being an average 13-year-old kid living in a 4-bedroom house to being a homeless 7th-grade-dropout, living in the family station wagon — and, if that wasn’t enough, he had to share it with 18 cats and 2 dogs! 

 As a result of his mother’s limitations, Christopher constantly endured mental and physical abuse throughout most of his young life. For the next four agonizing years, Christopher suffered through — and survived — many painful experiences, which ultimately made him the man he is today! After deciding he wasn’t going to be a victim of his circumstances anymore,Christopher changed the course of his life. He overhauled his belief system and seriously got down to business. As a result, he proudly earned a Master’s Degree in Organizational Management, purchased two houses, married his love, and started his professional speaking and training career (Kickass Guiide to Life).
