Descripción

After Suicide is Charlotte's personal account of her father's suicide, including before and after the event. This books main purpose is to be a support aid for people in a similar situation, or people wanting to understand more about the effect suicide has, it is not however meant to be a replacement for your doctor's recommendations. This book is help from someone that understands.

In this book, Charlotte will take you through her version of her father's suicide. She reminisces about the time her father fell ill, the timeframe in which her father went missing and the moment his body was found, through to his funeral. Charlotte then follows on to talk about her own experience with her personal recovery and her battle with grief. Charlotte explains how she coped with the utmost honesty, such as the things that helped her through the traumatic event and the things that she wishes she never did. She also talks about some ideas in which she thinks would benefit a person grieving, such as things that she would have done if she could redo it all, though this is merely opinion and not fact.

This is Charlotte's first ever self-published book, a book that may not be of literary perfection but comes straight from the heart and is filled with life in each page.

Sobre el autor

Charlotte Underwood, Wife, Daughter, and Sister, from Norfolk in the UK. "I have been writing stories my whole life, as I child I used to create and illustrate stories with a pen and paper on long car journeys. Writing for me is more than just a pastime, it is an outlet for me to put my feelings out into the world and therefore out of my mind, giving me that much-needed clarity." "My aim in life is to do whatever I can to create more support for mental illness and get rid of as much negative stigma as possible. I love to use my real life experiences to help people and let them know that they are not alone, though it is also very therapeutic for me to do." "If I can save only one person, then I will be content with my life but I will never give up fighting for better support for those in need."

Prologue

Suicide is something that you see in movies or on TV, the kind of drama that you never expect to happen to yourself or someone you know. I hate to break it to you but we are suffering a major mental health crisis, with suicide rates going up each year and a huge lack of support to help prevent it. I know this on a personal level as well as knowing many others having the same problem.

I remember reading a news article once, about a young boy who took his own life and his mother found him, it stung me, how can someone so young be pushed to make such a big decision and how must his family be feeling? When we are young we are so pure and innocent, so what happened to that boy for him to make such a major decision?

Not long after I read that article, my father decided to take his own life, so I can tell you that the child’s family, my family and every family, including friends, who have gone through losing someone to suicide have probably felt their own heart shatter and have forgotten how to feel alive, at least for a time. It also shows you a very ugly side to the modern world.

It's been three years since my father took his life and a lot has changed with how I live
