Grieving Insomniacs Podcast

The Grieving Insomaniacs Podcast is available on Anchor, Google Podcasts, and Spotify.

I was living the average life. I was married with two children working in a profession that I loved. On June 19. 2011 that life was destroyed and I became another person. My oldest son died unexpectedly. My son did not die from cancer. Chemotherapy killed him. It is a common experience, but I didn’t know that then. I thought that chemotherapy was going to save him. Almost immediately I felt betrayed by my profession because I was a counselor. I should have known how to handle his death. The loneliness started almost immediately. I felt so alone. I stopped sleeping and the people around me began to disappear. I knew I need community. 10 years later I am finally in a place where I am trying to build the community that I so desperately needed when Christopher first died. We can’t change that our children died, but we can help each other through it. Join me in creating a community for grieving mothers to share our stories with each other creating a sacred space for authentic grieving.

It is my mission for the podcast to provide grieving mothers everywhere a safe, sacred space where their grief is accepted. It is through the podcast that the culture of silence that surrounds the grief of the mother will be dismantled, and a culture of support will be created. It is our vision to create a community where we can share our questions, and concerns, and support each other.

I am here and I am listening. I am honored to hear your story.

It is our hope that you will like and subscribe to get regular updates on our show.

  1. I lost my 8 yr old son 6/10/22 unexpectedly.. I’m sobbing right now. I only listened to your first episode and everything you’ve said is exactly how I’m feeling. Alone, no one wants to hear about my son Elijah, no one talks about him anymore. Everyone hides from me. I’m only alive at this moment because of my 2 grown daughters. I have to live for them. I’v tried so many podcasts and books and none of them have helped at all. I’m so sorry for your loss, this pain… I’m so sorry.. thank you for making this, you are all I have and what I’ve been searching for.

  2. Thank you, Melinda. I am so glad you found some comfort by listening to my podcast. My whole goal in starting it was so grieving moms did not feel so alone. I am so sorry for your loss. There are no words that I can offer that will help ease the pain. Just know you are not alone on this journey. We are here with you.
