A Clearer Direction
Episode # 31
The past 30 episodes of this podcast have just really been getting my feet wet with the podcast putting it out on the Internet getting my technique and such down. Without any real direction for the podcast itself.
I heard about the DC pod Fest, which was November 10 and 11th. I was unsure about whether or not to go. But I finally decided to go ahead and get my ticket and go to the pod Fest just to see what things were like. I had no idea what to expect, I thought it would be just a bunch of people partying pretty much. But ladies and gentlemen, I’m here to tell you that I’ve got a much clearer a much more focused direction to go with this podcast.
As you all know when I’ve 1st started this podcast, in fact, the 1st 8 episodes of this podcast are tracking mom’s day today activities. Which was the subject of the podcast, but as you all know by now the family thought that was too much information. So the object of the podcast or the reason why I was podcasting was taken away from me. So from episode 9 to episode 30, I’m just sort of getting my technique you know the way I sound to a certain degree all of the ins and outs of podcasting.
After attending DC pod Fest. I have a much clearer and much more focused object of this podcast. You see, there are times when caregiving can be so stressful that you feel frustrated and alone. You feel like you’re the only one in the world dealing with your situation.
So I hope that this podcast from this point forward gives you an outlet, gives you someplace to release that frustration. Because you’re not caregiving by yourself, there is a lot of people caregiving for their parents, not just with dementia, but other diseases as well.
We as caregivers need a place that will allow us to remove the stress remove the frustration so that we don’t get to feel like were the only one dealing with this situation. I’m hoping that this podcast will give you that such place. I know this podcasts have really helped me with the stress I’m dealing with Mama and her dementia, it gives me an outlet to reach out to other caregivers, hopefully, to help them through their day. Hopefully to help them through their situations and maybe even put a smile back on their faces.
