/24-7PressRelease/ - Algonquin, IL, July 08, 2005 - An astrologer looks to the stars for answers; a psychic looks to the future; a spiritualist looks to a bigger outside Force. But where does someone who is all three of those things go when life hands them something that is too big for them to handle on their own.
Such was the plight of Miriam Maytorena when she learned that her mother would probably never recover from a series of medical problems and it was Ms. Mytorena's responsibility to care for her mother.
Ms. Maytorena was a graduate of Ohio University at Athens, Ohio, with degrees in psychology, counseling and administration. She had been a syndicated columnist, offering solutions to troubled people from all walks of life. She had spent twenty years focusing on astrology and personal development for her clients. She was pegged by many as a metaphysician and spiritual seeker and healer. Now, with a challenge that seemed bigger than life itself, Ms. Maytorena and her husband, Mark, had to move their furniture, tame their pets and make adjustments they had never imagined. Ms. Maytorena soon saw herself as an "end-of-life caregiver" and a "homespun philosopher." "I was an expert who became the most down-to-earth pragmatic person you have ever known. I was a wounded healer."
In Ms. Maytorena's new book, Life with Mother: A Journey of Love, Death and Rebirth, she deals with the problems that face any end-of-life caregiver with grace, charm and humor. If you, or someone you know, is facing tending to a loved one—whether it is a parent, a spouse, a child, or a friend—this book is the one that will help you see it through to the end without losing your sanity.
Life with Mother: A Journey of Love, Death and Rebirth; by Myriam Maytorena, M.Ed,; published by PageFree Publishing, Inc.; June, 2005. Available at online bookstores or at your local bookstore.
