    Why does Mommy hurt? An interview with author Elizabeth Christy on chronic pain

    in Health

    Elizabeth M. Christy lives in Northern Virginia with her husband James, son Jimmy (5), and daughter Lucy (newborn). She is the best-selling author of the children’s book "Why Does Mommy Hurt? Helping Children Cope with having a Caregiver with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, or Autoimmune Disease," and blogs on parentswithpain.com and potomacfallsmama.blogspot.ca.  Additionally, she works as a Systems Integrator for TASC. In addition to basic survival, Elizabeth enjoys writing, sewing (especially in straight lines!), and reading good memoirs.


    “Why Does Mommy Hurt?” is a great resource to talk to children about chronic pain and illness. On this episode, we'll discuss the guilt and shame many parents suffering from chronic pain feel about their parenting. The fact is that parents with chronic pain or illness can be just as awesome as “normal” parents when it comes to raising kids, and if you love your kids, that’s all that matters.  We may not be able to walk a mile to the playground, cook a 7-course organic meal from scratch, or volunteer on a field trip to the amusement park, but that’s not what really matters. If you love your kids, you will find your own way, and your kids will know it. Also, many parents in this situation feel very alone, especially when first diagnosed. There are millions of families out there in the same situation, you are not alone, and you have support out there waiting for you!

    in Spirituality

    This is one of my favorte topics.....


    Letting Go is great all on its own, however, when we let go of our struggle and our suffering which in most cases is completely of our own making, we can really taste freedom, joy, and peace of mind.

    Suffering Is Optional—You CAN Choose Peace Right Now

    in Motivation

    What if it’s truly possible, in any moment, to be happy, peaceful, and free of troubles? Today we’ll talk with psychologist, Dr. Gail Brenner, who tells us the surprising fact that nothing needs to change for us to be happy.


    We don’t need to use conventional techniques of self-help to fix ourselves or learn to think more positively. Instead, we discover that it takes only a simple shift of attention away from distorted thoughts and painful feelings. Then we’re present, aware, and awake to things as they are right now.


    You’ll learn to stop living through the veil of your mind-created stories about the past and future and start truly living with clarity and heart.


    Gail Brenner, Ph.D. is a psychologist who joyfully shares insights about discovering that suffering is optional. She is the author of the recently published book, "The End of Self-Help: Discovering Peace and Happiness Right at the Heart of Your Messy, Scary, Brilliant Life
