Dave Nassaney; is an author of numerous books and articles, speaker, life coach, entrepreneur, gas station owner for 35 years, 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. She suffered a massive stroke for no apparent reason. As a result, she lost her speech and has not spoken in sentences since. She is also paralyzed on the right side of her body. Charlene was like a cross between Martha Stewart and Wonder Woman before her stroke. After a two year grieving period, she came to the realization that she had to "play the cards that she was dealt," and so she decided to reinvent herself. Caregiving was a challanging journey for Dave.
His latest book that he's working on is a result of that journey. It is entitled: "The Caregiver's Caregiver, A Guide to Avoiding Burnout & Surviving Grief." 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. If they don't learn this, they will likely suffer burnout and become as helpless as the person they are caring for. Charlene continues to be an inspiration to Dave. "She makes us normal people look like whiners and complainers, and continues to do almost everything she did before her stroke, but in essence,she does it now with one arm and one leg tied behind her back, and she might as well have duct tape over her mouth, because she only can speak a handful of words."

September 11th, 2014 marks an anniversary of the day the world watched the United States of America tend to an act of terror on it's own soil. According to New York News & Politics, it's estimated that over 10,000 children lost their parents on September 11, 2001. Imagine learning your parents are dead due to a suicide bomber!
Imagine learning your parents consider you dead to them (upon learning you identify as gay or lesbian). Daniel Ashley Pierce's parents said just about as much in this (now viral) video.
A recent Rolling Stones article: The Forsaken: A Rising Number of Homeless Gay Teens Are Being Cast Out by Religious Families offers us a critical look at the terror some parents strike in the hearts of their kids when they learn of their sexual orientation.
In this episode, we'll talk about this terror with an expert who deals with youth who face homelessness due to a variety of factors, including coming out.
Meet Raquel (Rocki) Simões, Program Manager for Avenues for Homeless Youth in Minneapolis MN. She manages the GLBT Host Home Program. Rocki invites us to explore deeper aspects of youth homelessness briefly outlined in her blog-post on VillageQ.
