Episode 26: It’s the Griefiest Time of the Year: Handling the Holidays



Jayme Aills from the Grief Unfiltered podcast is here and there’s no filter on this conversation! Jayme lost her mom to breast cancer five years ago and, like me, is experiencing a new version of grief this year as she welcomed her daughter Breck to the world. But will this addition to the holiday table help ease the pain of the person missing from that same table? We talk through that, along with how to handle the holidays while grieving and how grief can differ among siblings.


Episode Highlights:

  • Jayme’s experience losing her mother and details on her podcast, Grief Unfiltered

  • Why breast cancer awareness campaigns, and all that PINK, drives her crazy

  • How grief changes the empathy you have for others in similar situations

  • Changes in grief after having a baby

  • Simple solutions to managing grief over the holidays
