60: Grieving Someone Who Still Lives
Listen now
Earlier this week, our episode 59, A Grief Observed, featured three people answering the same questions about their personal experience with grief. There was actually a fourth person, Meg Boberg, with very different circumstances, and her story is today’s episode. She shares her experience with “anticipatory grief,” where she grieves a loved one who has not yet passed. Unfortunately, Meg’s mother has now passed on since we recorded this interview. We extend heartfelt condolences to Meg and her family in this loss, and we sincerely thank her for transparently sharing her and her mother’s poignant story with us. Join us for Meg’s grief story.   Show Highlights: ●      What is anticipatory grief? ●      Highlights of Meg’s experience with her mother’s terminal cancer diagnosis since 2019, including writing an article about their shared experience ●      How Meg responds to the questions, “What can I do? How can I help?” ●      What people said or did that was helpful in the face of her mom’s terminal diagnosis ●      What people have said or done that was not helpful ●      How close friends have shown up for Meg during her anticipatory grief ●      Why saying something is better than saying nothing at all ●      Why the only thing that is NEVER helpful is to disappear, disengage, and not make any effort with a grieving person   Resources and Links: Read the article written by Meg and her mother, Linda: Navigating Preparatory & Anticipatory Grief Connect with KC: Website, TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook Get KC’s book, How to Keep House While Drowning We love the sponsors that make this show possible!
