All of my books, 35 so far, come from experience. My recent work focuses on caregiving and grief healing. In 2007 four family members died: my elder daughter (mother of our twin grandchildren), father-in-law, brother, and the twin’s father. As I have often done, I turned to writing for comfort and understanding. Eight grief resources came from this decision and you may learn more about them on harriethodgson.com.
I turned to writing for comfort and understanding
Life was calm until my husband’s aorta dissected in 2013. He had three emergency operations. During the last one he suffered a spinal stroke and it paralyzed his legs. After being hospitalized for eight months he was dismissed to my care. When my husband came home he was frail, tired, and spent much of his time in bed.
I turned to writing again for comfort and this led to The Family Caregiver’s Guide and Affirmations for Family Caregivers, both slated for fall release. Writing helped me and I think these books will help you. For like you, I walk the caregiving walk each day. WriteLife in Omaha, Nebraska is publishing my Family Caregiving Series. The third book, The Family Caregiver’s Journal, will be released in the spring of 2016. Please watch for these resources.
Wondering about the caregiving books Harriet’s already published?
How do you find comfort and understanding?
