Episode 163: When Caregiving is Rejected

Transcript for EP #163: When Caregiving is Rejected: A Mother and Her Son's MS.  Wanting to care for your child is a basic instinct for most mothers. All the more so when that child has a chronic condition, like the son of this podcast guest—a Wisconsin mother who asked that we not use her last name. Carol’s adult son has Multiple Sclerosis (MS), but he refuses to let Carol care for him. Their relationship wasn’t always strained. On the show, Carol reflects on how she and her son arrived at their impasse and she tells us how she navigates her relationship with her son now. She shares her concerns for her son’s future, and tells us why she still fundraises for MS. This is a must-read for anyone with family members or friends who refuse much-needed help.
