Ask Dr. Bunny. Part 2 – Kidney Dialysis? Kidney Transplants? Susan Vanderburgh, guest.

Susan Vanderburgh joins Dr. Bunny to continue their discussion on her husband’s kidney transplants and dialysis, as well as being his caregiver.

Susan goes in-depth about the challenges that came with not only being a full-time caregiver, but also being the sole breadwinner, and a full-time business woman (on top of being a mother of 5!), when her husband started dialysis. She soon figured out that in order to be a full-time caregiver, she had to let go of certain things that she’d always wanted to do – a very difficult realization.

Caregiving is a job that has no downtime. There are no days off, no ‘I feel like doing something else today’ days.  A caregiver is always ‘on’ – and the stress is unimaginable.

Adding to the stress of caregiving, is the stress of staying financially afloat. Susan realized, from the years when she was trying to build a business, that credit has always been a top priority. And whether you’re trying to get a loan from the bank, or from a private investor, if you don’t have good credit, no one will give you a loan.  She had seen this firsthand, with her background in business, as well as from personal experience.

So, Susan started two programs using the knowledge that she had gained from being a collection specialist at a national bank, as well as her time as a loan consultant who helped clients repair their credit.  One program is for business professionals (for the credit side), and the other program is specialized for caregivers who can call Susan for emotional support, as well as credit help.

Susan’s unique background gives her not only the extensive knowledge of repairing & building credit, but also allows her to help someone in a caregiving situation avoid a drop in their credit score, so that they will be more able to get a loan or credit cards, if/when they need them.

Susan is such a wealth of information and a true inspiration to all!  This is an interview you don’t want to miss!
