    Managing Madrid Podcast: Season Recap

    in Soccer

    Gabe Lezra, Josh Zeitlin and Bozz recap Real Madrid's disappointing 2014-2015 campaign, taking a look at each part of the team--from the underwhelming defense, to the sporadically brilliant midfield and forward lines. What went wrong for Real Madrid this year? What went right? Who is to blame? All this and more this week. 


    In addition, the guys take a bunch of listener questions and reflect on the state of the club going forward. Will Rafa Benitez be a good manager for the Whites? And what areas should Madrid target in the next transfer window? 


    And finally, they reflect on the recent FIFA implosion, with some appropriately vitriolic words for (now ex-!!!!) FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

    Managing Caregiver Stress

    in Health

    Joyce talks with Eve (not her real name) about her experience as a caregiver through her husband’s chronic illness and death. She then talks with Dr. Sheryle Baker about Eve’s experience, and about the changes that occur in the dynamics between the patient and the caregiver, and how we can all help the caregiver survive. This is a one hour show.


    About Our Guests


    Eve (not her real name) is the widow of a man who had von Hippel-Lindau disease, and a series of brain and kidney tumors that led him to a course of dialysis and eventually to his death. Eve graciously shares the pain of her experience so that we can learn from her experience.


    Sheryle Baker, M.A., LMHC., is Executive Director of Life Center of Tampa, Florida, a non-profit agency that provides counseling for victims of violent crime, and people who have lost loved ones, through chronic illness or sudden death. She a psychotherapist specializing in bereavement and traumatic loss and incident.


    About Caregiver Stress


    It is important to manage caregiver stress while you are going through the experience. If the patient is willing to negotiate the changes in roles and responsibilities that occur, that can help. Others around the caregiver can provide important support and outlets for stress.


    For both the patient and the caregiver, there are a series of losses, culminating in the death of the loved one. Each of these losses must be grieved, and the grief worked through, or the stress turns outward (as anger) or inward (as bitterness and even illness).


    Often when we are in a traumatic incident we muddle on through and seem to be doing fine. After the peak of the stress has passed, however, we crash. This “post-traumatic stress” can be devastating, and requires work to get through it.
