    Losing Your Parents Episode 12: Holidays + Communicating with Deceased Parents

    in Self Help

    About this episode: Today we’re talking about ways you can communicate with your deceased parents during the holidays.


    About this show:
    I have lost both of my parents to cancer in my 20’s. When I was 22, I woke up next to my dad who had died and when I was 27 I watched my mom take her last breath.


    After being present for their illness and witnessing their deaths, I had to face life as a young person without them. I decided that it was important to me to connect with other people who have also lost their parents. I’m in my 30’s now.  I write and talk about my journey through healing my grief and working through life challenges that come up using creativity and self expression.


    My blog is LosingYourParents.org and my goal is to bridge the gap between grief and joy at every opportunity.

    In addition, we welcome our featured guest Mrs. Vanessa Lewis of Orlando, Florida. She shares with us her life growing up "Southern Style." By the year 2007, at a height of only 5'3, her weight tipped the scales at a whopping 206 lbs. So come on this journey and learn how she lost over 82 lb.., and Vanessa’s secrets to keeping it off.


    Vanessa’s personal story:  “Growing up in the South you eat large portions, at least my family did. Homemade biscuits, fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, collard greens and cornbread and lets not forget my favorite sweet potato pie.


    On December 27, 2007 I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol problems.  I did not want to take any medication because I felt the side effects were worse than the cure. So I started walking that day.  I purchased a treadmill for home and started on my lifestyle change. Losing the weight was easy but keeping it off has been the hardest thing in my life.  I have kept it off for 6 years 2 months.”  As of today Vanessa is --- Age: 58 -- Weight: 124 lbs.
