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”: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/08/well/family/depression-suicide-covid-woodworking-canoe-cutting-boards.html

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.

Zestful Aging and Mental Health

Nicole and Kristin talk about all things women over about 45 seem to experience. Things like plantar fasciitis, menopause, mental health concerns, and more. Her podcast, Zestful Aging, just joined Mental Health News Radio Network and we couldn’t be happier.

Nicole Christina has been a psychotherapist for almost 30 years, specializing in eating disorders and food issues. You can find her blog posts on SixtyandMe.com.

One day in 2018 her intern suggested that she think about podcasting in order to share her message with a wider audience. A big believer in striking while the iron is hot, the next day she took her laptop to the home of Vicky Lane, a local woman fly fishing expert and volunteer. After that interview, She was hooked (no pun intended).
?
Zestful Aging is currently heard in 80 countries, in part because she is a media partner with the International Federation of Aging. Her hope for the Podcast is that it inspires and reframes aging as a time of great opportunity and growth. Themes of resilience and humanitarianism shine through in almost every conversation. Her diverse guests are contributing to the world using their unique gifts. The conversations go beyond the obvious sound bites; she makes every attempt to have a deep, nuanced conversation and understand my guest’s motivations and fears.
?
One of her renowned guests, Ashton Applewhite states, “Aging is living.” Nicole hopes the conversations bring richness and a fresh perspective to your life.
