Feeling Left Behind: Permission to Grieve

Bublish, Inc.
Free sample

The grief that accompanies the loss of a loved one is crippling. In Feeling Left Behind, author Kim Murdock relates and empathizes with that pain because she’s been there. She knows what it feels like to be woefully blindsided by music or at the grocery store, to reconsider the future alone, and to connect with a person who is no longer alive. You will relate to her chapters as she describes:


●     The crushing desire to freeze time and isolate yourself

●     The unstable phase of “firsts”― first holidays, birthdays, anniversaries

●     The anger and sadness at seeing other couples

●     The loss of self, empathy, security, and tolerance

●     The heartbreaking sadness of getting rid of their belongings

●     And so much more


This is not a step-by-step guide on how to grieve. Kim outlines every detail of her experience as well as the experiences of her widow/widower friends to show you that you are not alone. You are normal. And you deserve as much time as possible to figure out how to survive in your own way.

A warm, simple, and practical guide to real and immediate help for those lost in the darkness of depression?written by someone who has experienced it and found a way out.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than 17 million Americans suffer from depression. For many of these millions, climbing back out of the pit of gloom seems almost impossible. Depression often leaves its victims feeling paralyzed, numb, and alone. Climbing Out of Depression is a guide for everyone who is looking for practical help.

Unlike clinical books that approach depression from a theoretical, academic viewpoint, what makes this book distinctive is the fact that the author herself has suffered from depression for many years. Atkinson does not write as an expert, or as a depression counselor, but as someone who knows the feelings from close personal experience. Climbing Out of Depression is a handbook to offer immediate help for the mind, the body, and?with the author?s gentle spiritual touch?also the soul. Topics covered in Climbing Out of Depression include the causes of depression; how to take action when life becomes too difficult; dealing with negativity; overcoming fear, worry, and panic; understanding anger; coping with loss; and much more.

Climbing Out of Depression is a tried-and-true tested book that incorporates strategies, tips, and success stories, many of the author herself. Written in easily grasped sections designed to be read for the limited concentration spans that often accompany depression, Atkinson leads the reader through the ?why? of depression and then offers ?how-to? suggestions based on firsthand proven techniques. Reading this book is similar to having a conversation with a compassionate friend, one who has ?been there? and knows what to say and how to help.

Introduction 

Being human beings, especially in an age where stress and strain, as well as tension is a part of human life, is it a surprise that most of us keep suffering from tension induced Black moods. Call them whatever you like – bad tempered, tantrums, disinclination to enjoy anything, gruffness, and a feeling that there is no joy left in life and what is the use of continuing to struggle on in a thankless existence? 

This book is going to tell you all about Black moods and depression and how they can be potentially harmful for your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. 

There are a number of people all over the world who spend most of their lives in the depths of despair. When asked the reason why their mood is so pessimistic, or gloomy, they do not have a definite explanation for this phenomenon. Many times this is just to gain attention and soon it becomes a chronic habit because those persons find out that there are going to be people around them trying to coax and cajole them into a better temper. 

I remember enjoying one of DE Stevenson’s very well written books “The Blue Sapphire” in which the young heroine Julia Harcourt is really glad to get away from her house. Her father was a charming young man, and spoiled in the bargain by his family and the people around him. He imagined that he could get away with anything. And he did something unforgivable for which the family never forgave him. 
So he spent the rest of his life, making his wife and daughter’s life miserable, because spoiled brats get depressed when they do not get their own way. And as she said to her uncle Randall, “father has spent his life wrapped up in a brown blanket. He never loved me. He has always been miserable. ”And his daughter escaped that house of gloom and melancholy as soon as she could, and never went back again. 

So if you are subject to those fits of Black moods, not only are you make the people around you unhappy and miserable, but you are also going to suffer from plenty of psychological, emotional, physical and mental problems.
“My book … details the living hell that was my experience with concussions. The majority of this story was kept from even my closest relationships. It wasn’t easy, but it’s time to tell it.” – Dale Jr.

It was a seemingly minor crash at Michigan International Speedway in June 2016 that ended the day early for Dale Earnhardt Jr. What he didn’t know was that it would also end his driving for the year. He’d dealt with concussions before, but concussions are like snowflakes—no two are the same. And recovery can be brutal—and lengthy.

As a third-generation driver in a family forever connected to the sport of stock-car racing, how could Dale Earnhardt Jr. sit on the sidelines and watch everyone else take their laps? It was one of the toughest seasons of his life—one that changed him forever.

In this gripping narrative from one of professional sports’ most beloved figures, Dale Jr. shares stories from his journey: how his career and his injury have transformed him, how he made the decision to retire at the end of the 2017 season after eighteen years behind the wheel, and what lies ahead for him in the next chapter of his life. There’s no second-guessing and no regrets from Driver #88. He simply wants to go out on his own terms and make the rest of his life off the racetrack count. Junior says, “I don’t want these last races to be just about me but rather the people who made my success possible: my fans, the folks who pack the grandstands rain or shine, my teammates and crew members through the years, industry colleagues, track volunteers, friends, family, sponsors. They’ve all played a role. I couldn’t have done it without them.”
