Coming Back: Conversations on life after loss

May 8, 2019

On Mother's Day 2007, Julie Cluff was driving the car that rolled over, killing two of her six children and injuring a third. Since that day, she has wrestled with the identity of "the mom who lost two children." On this episode of Coming Back, Julie and I are talking about how our losses do and do not define us, how traumatic grief can cause PTSD, and how Julie has shifted her spiritual beliefs to come to terms with that life-changing car accident. Also this week, I'm talking about the weird phenomenon of looking like my dead mom. Do you look like a loved one who has died?
