Podcast #22 — Disappointment & Grief: Finding a New Normal

In this episode of Coming Up for Air, Annie and Laurie cover the topic of grief and disappointment and elaborate on finding a new normal. Laurie covers the 5 stages of grief and introduces the concept of grieving someone who's still living. Both moms give examples of how they are making peace with how life was, versus what it has become after loss, change and having a Loved One who struggles with SUD.
