In this Mortisode, we learn about Disenfranchised Grief: what it is, and what you can do when you spot it in real life. Sometimes, knowing the name of something helps you cope with it. Have you experienced this kind of grief before? What helped you through it?
‡ DISENFRANCHISED GRIEF
I'm sure when you saw the episode title you got excited, right?
Hopefully, this episode was helpful. I remember when I learned about this subject for the first time....it blew my mind and helped deepen my compassion for other people, and myself.
Disenfranchised Grief happens anytime society says you aren't entitled to your feelings.
It happens most often with things like suicide, abortion, miscarriage, loss of a pet. But there are all kinds of situations where this happens.
Here's the wikipedia page on disenfranchised grief.

First, I feel really grateful combined with utter fear at the overwhelming response we've had to folks who want to be on the show.
Second, we had around 100 people apply this last round, and we sent out a big scheduling email last week. Recipients would get a link, see a calendar, and select an available appointment time. All the slots were filled in a couple hours.
ALL THE SLOTS THROUGH JUNE!!
Just a friendly reminder, I am one woman and I have to do 100% of the interviews. We're trying to figure out how to fit some of you guys in who couldn't snag an appointment. Just wanted to acknowledge this 'behind the scenes' aspect because it's something we didn't anticipate.
In the meantime, please share about the podcast, rate it and review it! I see all that and it matters so much to me. <3
