Overview

Beyond Surviving is a raw, beautiful, and inspirational collection of stories written by people who have survived the loss of a loved one to suicide. Our contributing authors speak frankly and from the heart, and delve deep into the confusion, anger, overwhelming sorrow, and feelings of loneliness that can accompany losing a loved one to suicide.

Part I of this books takes us through stories of initial shock, denial, confusion and even rage at the loss of our loved one. Part II of this book walks the reader through the journey of grief. Our writers share stories on how they coped with their loss once the initial shock wore off. The stories discuss ways in which to cope with the "firsts" that can be difficult, like holidays, anniveraries, birthdays, and "Angel Days" as we like to call the day our loved ones died.

The final part of this book explores how to work through grief and find Hope and a "new normal." This includes the strength that we have found, the ways in which we have somehow managed to turn our grief and healing journey into something positive, and the hope that all of us survivors, while we will never forget, and we will never "move on," we can move forward, and live once again.

100% of the proceeds of this book goes directly to Survivors of Suicide Loss, San Diego, a nonprofit organization, to help us support our survivor support programs and to carry out our mission.
