HumorOutcasts Radio Interview Cathy Sikorski “Who Moved My Teeth?”

Who Moved My Teeth CoverWhat is a caregiver? If you help someone else you may be a caregiver and not realize it. As time goes on in a given situation your role as such may well become a major responsibility. Many of us should also be aware of the looming risk that we ourselves will someday be in a situation where we require assistance in our daily lives.

These are daunting possibilities to ponder. I happen to feel, however, that choosing to be a caregiver for a loved one when it is possible is a noble and rewarding act. Moreover, it does not have to be the nightmare that it often turns out to be when we wait for a crisis to develop before we take action to become informed.

This is the subject of the book, “Who Moved My Teeth? Preparing for Self, Loved Ones and Caregiving” by Cathy Sikorski.

Cathy is an attorney who specializes in elder care. I found Cathy to be a skilled speaker who infuses the right amount of humor and lightheartedness into such topics as powers of attorney, advanced directives, managing medical bills and many other subjects. The book provides an excellent background into these matters and provides a feel for what you may need to research.

As stated in the book:

“And this is where a good Elder Lawyer comes in. Find her or him and talk to them. Know what you can and cannot do and when you can and cannot do it. Knowledge is Power.”

HumorOutcasts Radio Interview with Molly Stevens

1BOTL coverI had a lot of fun interviewing Molly Stevens, who is the author of, “Boomer on the Ledge.”

Molly brought up some good points during the course of our podcast. One of the themes that seems central to her message is that it is never too late to discover new passions and ways to be creative as we mature. In fact, sometimes life experiences can enhance our ability to tackle original endeavors and challenges.

Another concept that seems very dear to Molly is the idea that humor is a great way to deal with life challenges and can also be a way to inspire others to examine their own place in life in a more lighthearted and positive fashion.

Molly lives in Maine and still works as a registered nurse part-time after a long and fulfilling full-time career in the medical field. More recently Molly discovered the joys of writing and over the past number of years has been showcasing her work on her blog ShallowReflections.com.

“Boomer on the Ledge” is an interesting blend of musings and observations about the positive and negative aspects of being a Baby Boomer as well as an inspired pictorial of images photographed by Molly to illustrate the perceptions conveyed in the book.

Molly is a contributor to HumorOutcasts.com and can be found on Twitter @ShallRef and on her Facebook pages Shallow Reflections and Boomer on the Ledge. Her book, “Boomer on the Ledge,” can be found here on Amazon published by HumorOutcasts Press. You can follow @HOPress on Twitter.
