    Watch out! Seniors with Dysfunctional Families

    in Caregiving

     
    When adult children with aging loved ones start working the family on planning for the future they comment, “On, this will be interesting because my family does not get along”.  This is a red flag that this family maybe dealing with dysfunction from their earlier years.  There may have been the presence of alcohol, emotional distance, unclear boundaries and a lack of communication.  As a friend explained her childhood, “It was like walking on eggshells.”
    A functional family can more easily address the decline of their parent because they were raised to solve problems a group.  They communicate well, that does not mean they can place their parent in an assisted living without emotions.
    This radio segment will delve into the traits of functional and dysfunctional families along with solutions for families caring for their senior.

    The Rehab & Recovery Chronicles 5: Radical Ways to Free Yourself from Addiction

    in Caregiving

    It's time. It's time to look at ourselves in the mirror and really have a deep conversation with ourselves. Is what we're doing with our addictions keeping us alive? It's 'in our face' loudly that many people out there using conventional methods geared towards addiction or recovery are completely LOST. The program(s) they are using or have used are just not working - not to their satisfaction anyway. So here we are...
    Tonight we are headed into a huge staredown with POST ACUTE WITHDRAWL SYNDROME.
    According to ADDICTIONS and RECOVERY.org, they state this:
    There are two stages of withdrawal. The first stage is the acute stage, which usually lasts at most a few weeks. During this stage, you may experience physical withdrawal symptoms. But every drug is different, and every person is different.
    The second stage of withdrawal is called the Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS). During this stage you'll have fewer physical symptoms, but more emotional and psychological withdrawal symptoms.
    Post-acute withdrawal occurs because your brain chemistry is gradually returning to normal. As your brain improves the levels of your brain chemicals fluctuate as they approach the new equilibrium causing post-acute withdrawal symptoms.
    The Symptoms of Post-Acute Withdrawal
    The most common post-acute withdrawal symptoms are:
    Mood swings Anxiety Irritability Tiredness Variable energy Low enthusiasm Variable concentration Disturbed sleep During this segment, we will discuss these points, and what one can do to overcome PAWS in a much faster turn around time. If you believe you fall into the category of experiencing Post Acute Withdrawl Syndrome, you are not alone. Please join us tonight at 8:00 pm, PST.
