CPR is a skill you never hope to use, NEVER. Dealing with the loss of an athlete after performing CPR and using an AED is not supposed to happen. It did, and I share my story and the grief process. This podcast is recorded early in the stages of grieving.
#1 tip if you know someone dealing with grief and loss:
Text or email them “I was just thinking about you, wondering how you are doing. If you find you need something let me know”
This gives them a chance to easily avoid talking if they do not want to talk at that time or to you but allows them to know they are not alone.
#2 Tip do it again once a week for the next few weeks.
A labrum repair put off for about 20 years led to arthritis bad enough to need cadaver flesh put into the shoulder joint. The long recovery and lack of progress led to depression. Mike Naron talks about his feeling of hopelessness and how he pulled through.
