About this episode

Episode 2

In this episode, I'm bringing you a conversation that's both emotional and enlightening.

I had the pleasure of reuniting with an old high school friend Libby Neesham, who shared her incredibly personal experiences with the death of her parents, her unique approach to motherhood, and her valuable insights on dealing with grief as someone with neurodiversity.

Don't forget to follow and leave a review if this episode resonates with you. Your support helps us continue these meaningful conversations.

Remember; You may not be ready to die, but at least you can be prepared.

Take care,

Catherine

Libby Neesham

Libby Neesham describes herself as an artist, an educator and a committed ally walking alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The things that are central to her identity are; being a woman, a mother, a partner, a daughter, a sister and a good human being.
Her family is key when it comes to her identity and sense of self.
And she describes herself as ‘kooky’ and not neurotypical at all.

Summary

In this episode:

  • Libby opens up about the different ways she grieved the death of each of her parents and the lessons she learned along the way.
  • She reflects on her journey into motherhood and how it has shaped her understanding of life and death.
  • We delve into the importance of having open conversations about end-of-life matters and the impact it has on our lives.
  • Libby's story is a powerful reminder of the complexities of grief and the strength we find in the most challenging times. Her insights are not just about coping with loss but also about growing from it, embracing life, and cherishing the memories of those we've lost.
