The Female Solution w/Naimah Latif
Some cultures have a specific method for determining which child will take care of the elderly parents: first born son, youngest daughter, etc. But Americans leave such a thing to chance, and many couples fail to discuss this important issue prior to the marriage. When our parents age, they may need to move in with us, or we may need to become their live in caregiver. Have you and your spouse agreed how you will handle the care of your aging parents? What if your parent is ill? What if your spouse's parent is ill? How would you feel about putting your elderly parent in a home? Today we examine how to approach this very sensitive subject with your spouse, before the time comes to care for an elderly parent
Many cultures have a specific method for choosing which child will take care of parents when they become old and feeble. It may be the first born son, the youngest daughter, etc. But Americans have no such cultural practice and that means that elders are at the mercy of whichever child decides to take care of them. Is your spouse willing to help care for your parent? Would you care for your inlaws? Or would you put them in a senior citizen homeHow do you discuss the possibilities with your spouse?

On today's show we will talk about caring for the caregiver. In Part 1 (on March 2) we talked about the basics of nutrition and ways to incease the feel good chemicals in our body with food. Eating well and balancing your blood sugar is essential for reducing stress, feeling well and keeping the stress hormone (cortisol) low. Today, we are going to go beyond the basics of nutrition and get into the mind-body connection and the power of our thoughts. You can choose to take care of you even if you have others to care for.

Come join host Dave Etter by calling (516) 453-9167 - I'll have the show on loudspeakers! It'll be great! The show will mirror alot of the event content, so, we will talk about surviving deployment souse issues like keeping the long distance romance alive, planning and keeping a deployment budget, what kind of friends to make/keep/avoid, how to stay married (no cheating), how to learn from the deployment and prepare for the next - or plan for seperation from the military. All things every inquiring spouse should know! BTW, this show will be toned down language-wise to support the onsite live nature of the event, ok, guys? Keep it "G" rated!
MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based radio show, hosted by Army spouse Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.

CMC Radio Presents: Amity Buxton of the Straight Spouse Network - Part 4
When Jeannette Davidson-Mayer’s husband, DeWayne, had five brain injuries - the result of his active duty in Iraq - Jeannette became his caregiver. To combat this 24-hour job, Jeannette redesigned her kitchen to become the family’s “Central Command Post." Jeannette will discuss how she, DeWayne, and their daughter make this system work for them.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!

Katherine Flannery Dering, author of Shot in the Head: A Sister’s Memoir, A Brother’s Struggle (Bridgeross Communications; 2014) is the second of ten children. Her younger brother, Paul, was diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 16. Busy with her own family and career, she helped with his care only intermittently for many years, but took on a more intense role after her parents death and especially after he developed physical ailments, as well as the psychological ones. She found herself very moved by the experience and writes about caring for her brother in hopes that it will enlighten the public on the role of caregivers. Katherine holds an MFA from Manhattanville College, a BA from Le Moyne College, an MA from the University of Buffalo and a MBA from the University of Minnesota at Duluth. Her poetry and essays have appeared in Inkwell Magazine, as well as The Bedford Record Review, Northwords Press, Sensations Magazine, Pandaloon Press, Poetry Motel and Pink Elephant Magazine. A narrative non-fiction piece, which later became a chapter of Shot in the Head, was included in Stories from the Couch, an anthology of essays about coping with mental illness. Dering taught Spanish briefly and is a former CFO at a community bank in New York. She currently serves on the board of directors of a startup bank and actively volunteers with the League of Women Voters and the Northern Westchester Community Center.

What boundaries should you set in your marriage? See what we have to say about it! We will also discuss current world and entertainment news.
