Beyond a Mother’s Worst Nightmare….. allowing yourself to live and love again after a death of a child

Losing a loved one is never easy. When it is your child, it’s all the more difficult. Parents are not supposed to outlive their children, so most are unprepared when it happens.

A little part of you dies, along with your child. You’ll never really “get over” their passing, but you will learn to live with the loss, making it a part of who you become.

Karen Chaston share’s her three-year journey following the unexpected death of her son Dan at age 27. She shares with readers how her child’s death compelled her to rethink her priorities and re-examine the meaning of life.

Her journey is one of gratitude, laughter, love, joy, reflection and contemplation. She talks of how she honours her child, whilst also recognising the need to re-engage in life and find pleasure in new experiences.

It may seem impossible, but you can go on to find happiness and purpose in life again.

To the Survivors is a deeply-moving, empowering, and brutally honest book about one man’s journey as a rape crisis counselor combined with true stories of sexual violence shared by real survivors in their own words. Gently and beautifully constructed, To the Survivors is moving, tender, sharp, and piercingly true all at once. The reader will encounter uncensored written stories, poems, and interviews shared by women, men, and one transgendered person who have been raped and sexually assaulted. The impact of this work is far reaching – it is multi-cultural, multi-generational, and fully expansive in its ability to reach people’s hearts and minds around this critical human issue. Robert Uttaro believes anyone can benefit from the words in these pages; rape survivor or not.

Memoir – She’s Not Herself

Shes Not HerselfShe’s Not Herself
A psychotherapist’s journey into and beyond her mother’s mental illness
By Linda Appleman Shapiro
Publisher: Dream of Things
Published: September 2014
ISBN: 978-0988439078
ASIN: B00N9PY1CQ
Genre: Memoir
Formats Available For Review: pdf, mobi, epub, Kindle, Nook

On the surface, her childhood seemed normal—even idyllic. Linda grew up in the iconic immigrant community of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, with her parents and a gifted older brother. But she spent her days at home alone with a mother who suffered major bouts of depression. At such times, young Linda was told, “Your mother…she’s not herself today.” Those words did little to help Linda understand what she was witnessing. Instead, she experienced the anxiety and hyper-vigilance that often take root when secrecy and shame surround a family member who is ill.

“She’s Not Herself” is a journey to make sense of the effects of multi-generational traumas. Shapiro is ultimately able to forgive (without forgetting) those who left her to fend for herself—and to provide readers with the wisdom of a seasoned psychotherapist who has examined human vulnerability in its many disguises and has moved through it all with dignity and hope. The result is a memoir of love, loss, loyalty, and healing.

“An honest and compelling story by a brave and gifted writer.” Wally Lamb, author of She’s Come Undone and I Know This Much Is True

“A revealing account of someone who grew up with a mentally ill parent and survived to become an effective, loving mother and a successful professional healer.” The U.S. Review of Books

ISBN: 978-0988439092

“Book of the Year” by the Chicago Writers Association, “Any Road Will Take You There” is an honest, unflinching, and tender memoir. A middle-aged father takes the reader on a five-thousand-mile road trip, the one he always wished he’d taken as a young man. Recently divorced and uncertain of the future, he rereads the iconic road story – Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” – and along with his two sons and his best friend, heads for the highway to rekindle his spirit. However, a family secret turns the cross-country journey into an unexpected examination of his role as a father, and compels him to look to the past and the fathers who came before him to find contentment and clarity, and celebrate the struggles and triumphs of being a dad.
