Today I share an inspiring conversation with the lovely Kristina Driscoll from the "She's Brave" podcast where she helps women find their path to become brave, resilient and authentic. Kristina has learned how to be brave because she had to. Life has really thrown her some curveballs. She married her soulmate who was 24 years older than her and in 4 years they had their long-awaited child. Kristina’s husband was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's when their son was only 5 years old. She was the caregiver to them both for 12 years. In our conversation Kristina shares the unique lessons she had to learn as a mother and what she had to teach her son in order to be able to survive and thrive in this challenging situation.
Kristina emphasises the importance of living in the present, spending quality time with children, and seeking help and building a community of support. The conversation touches on therapy for children, the difficult decision of moving a loved one to a care home, and the myth of overprotective parenting.
