Debby Waldman — “How Covid-19 and Power Tools Helped Heal My Relationship With My Son”

Debby Waldman is a writer and ex-pat American who has lived in Edmonton, Alberta, since 1992. We were knitting buddies in New Haven, Connecticut in the mid-1980s when she was a newspaper reporter there, but we lost touch until recently, when a mutual friend sent me her New York Times essay, “How Covid-19 and Power Tools Helped Heal My Relationship With My Son”:

The essay is in part about how the pandemic gave her a chance to pursue a long-time dream, to learn woodworking, but it’s also about another step in her journey to understand and come to grips with her family’s legacy of mental illness. She has recently completed a draft of a memoir about the effects of the secrets and silence that surrounded the suicide of her father, a Reform rabbi, when she was 13. Learn more at

How Is This Strange Time Affecting You? – TPS427

In this episode I share some thoughts about what each of us can do to overcome feelings of aloneness and powerlessness that are affecting a lot of people during this difficult time.

I’m trying to identify the emotions, both comfortable and uncomfortable, that I’m experiencing now.
Because I like to solve problems, not knowing how to help leads me to feel powerless.
I have no power to change what’s going on outside of me. I can only change what’s going on inside of me.
The people in power don’t understand what ordinary people have to go through.
What can each of us do – what actions can we take – to help lift the burden that so many are feeling.
Although there’s a lot of aloneness going on, we have the opportunity to reach out and connect to others.
It’s important to reach out to others and be authentic about how you are feeling and what you are dealing with.
If we share our feelings with others, both up and down, we can feel more whole.
Who might you reach out to just to ask How are you doing?
How can you re-perceive the current situation?
We need to connect to and support others.
We have to look beyond the past and into the future. And, you have the right to imagine a positive future.
Try to imagine positive solutions and results of what has been happening.
How can you look into the future and see a positive story?
