No Time to Say Goodbye: Surviving the Suicide of a Loved One
Suicide would appear to be the last taboo. The suicide of a loved one is still an act most people are unable to talk about--or even admit to their closest family or friends. This is just one of the many painful and paralyzing truths author Carla Fine discovered when her husband, a successful young physician, took his own life in December 1989. And being unable to speak openly and honestly about the cause of her pain made it all the more difficult for her to survive.
With No Time to Say Goodbye, Carla brings suicide survival from the darkness into light, speaking frankly about the overwhelming feelings of confusion, guilt, shame, sadness, anger, and loneliness that are shared by all survivors. Carla draws on her own experience and on conversations with many other survivors--as well as on the knowledge of counselors and mental health professionals. She offers a strong helping hand and invaluable guidance to the vast numbers of family and friends who are left behind by the more than 30,000 people who commit suicide each year, struggling to make sense of an act that seems to them senseless, and to pick up the pieces of their own shattered lives. And, perhaps most important, for the first time in any book, Carla allows survivors to see that they are not alone in their feelings of grief and despair.
