REPLAY: When Your Nervous System is Fried

Looking for practical strategies to nourish a fried nervous system?

Living with someone who has significant vulnerability in their nervous system can lead to a sensitized stress response system, resulting in unpredictable and sometimes unsafe behaviors. This can leave our own nervous systems in a state of distress. While we often discuss secondary trauma in parenting kids with trauma histories, the truth is that living with someone who has significant dysregulation is trauma in itself. Understanding this perspective allows us to acknowledge the challenges we face without criticizing ourselves or others.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The impact of parenting on your nervous system
  • The consequences of burnout and lack of support
  • Signs of a fried nervous system
  • Practical strategies for nourishing a fried nervous system
