5 Years Later: Do you return to your pre-DPC self?

Listen on

Episode notes

Someone once said that you 'won't start to feel more like your normal self until 5 years after the death'. Is this true? Is it partially true? Does it really ever happen?

In this episode we discuss how our emotions and sense of self changed between before-Mum-dying (BMD) and after-Mum-dying (AMD) - and how those parts of us changed or returned after 5 years.

Are there any parts of the before-parent-dying (BPD) self that you miss? Let us know!
