<b>Un témoignage émouvant sur la première année de deuil suite à la perte d'un être cher</b><br /><br />À vingt-deux ans, Corentin, étudiant en communication, sportif, entouré de vrais amis et d’une famille unie, semble mener une vie facile.<br />Mais une nuit, sans aucun signe précurseur, il met fin à ses jours après avoir envoyé un message d’amour à tous ses proches.<br />La vie bascule alors pour toute sa famille. Après l’organisation des funérailles, la formidable solidarité, mais aussi l’anesthésie des premiers jours, commence l’enfer des questions, des regrets et du besoin d’expliquer un suicide totalement insoupçonné. Aidée par un thérapeute, la maman de Corentin s’accroche pourtant à la vie.<br />Un an après le drame, elle prend la plume pour tenter de dire l’indicible et témoigner qu’il est possible de continuer à vivre debout. Elle retrace une année de ce deuil si particulier après un suicide. Elle y décrit avec des mots justes et sobres toutes les étapes de ce parcours toujours inachevé.<br /><br /><b>Le combat d'une mère pour continuer à vivre après le suicide de son fils.</b><br /><br />EXTRAIT<br /><br />Si j’écris, c’est pour dire à d’autres que je suis debout, mes enfants et mon mari aussi, nous sommes debout et savons aujourd’hui que la mort ne peut pas TOUT emporter, qu’on peut apprendre à vivre avec elle, à espérer encore des petits coins de ciel bleu même si elle a tout coloré de teintes différentes. Leur dire qu’au début ces paroles m’étaient inaudibles, inconcevables.<br />Si j’écris, c’est aussi pour moi, pour me renforcer, faire apparaître au détour des mots de manière forte ce qui n’était, tout au long des saisons, que balbutiements, tâtonnements, avec des retours en arrière : oui, il est possible de vivre. Comme si nos morts avaient veillé sur notre famille.<br />Mais il est sûr que plus rien ne sera plus jamais comme avant. La date du 26 juin sera toujours comme une fracture béante dans notre vie. Il y aura toujours un avant et un après.<br /><br />À PROPOS DE L'AUTEUR<br /><br /><b>Sylvie Van Dam</b> est née en 1959. Philologue de formation, elle exerce depuis trente-trois ans le métier d’enseignante. Mariée et mère de quatre enfants, elle partage son temps entre ses cours, sa vie familiale et sa passion de l’écriture.

I was a full time carer to my Dad, who had Lewy Body Dementia. He also had Parkinsons Disease. I have written my true story, from a carers view. Hence the first chapter A week with Mr Lewy Body, followed by an update on Mr Lewy Body, and finally the Final Chapter of Mr Lewy Body.<br /> My aim is to bring awareness to Lewy Body Dementia, and how it effects the sufferer and the carer. This true story was written in the beginning over a week at silly o’ clock , then it followed on over a period of 2 years. Highlighting the high and lows. <br /> This goes out to all the thousands of dementia suffers, regardless of their type of dementia. To all the thousands of carers, many of whom have to cope with this on their own.<br /> More help and understanding is needed for people with dementia. It is not all about money, although there is not enough funding. It’s understanding their needs and how it affects their lives.<br /> We must make sure that when the time comes that they can no longer be cared for at home, and end up in a hospital or a care home, they receive the care and dignity, which should come naturally instead of being ignored, like they don’t exist, or don’t understand. They do.<br /> They are somebody’s parents, they have fought wars, brought up families, have been carers. They should not be let down by our society, and this should not be happening in this day and age.<br />

<b>From Facebook’s COO and Wharton’s top-rated professor, the #1 <i>New York Times</i> best-selling authors of <i>Lean In </i>and <i>Originals:</i> a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.</b><br />  <br /> After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. “I was in ‘the void,’” she writes, “a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.” Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build. <br /> <i> Option B </i>combines Sheryl’s personal insights with Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart—and her journal—to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But <i>Option B </i>goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere . . . and to rediscover joy.<br /> Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. <i>Option B </i>illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. “I want Dave,” she cried. Her friend replied, “Option A is not available,” and then promised to help her make the most of Option B.<br /> We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it.

I was 24 when my mother died, and 26 when my father passed away. Because of that catastrophe, I lost the family home and any stability I ever counted on. It was the greatest disaster of my life, and years later that fact has not changed. <br /><br />This book is about dealing with the death of a parent when you are somewhere in your 20s, and is an autobiographical recounting of what I went through. In the aftermath, I made many bad decisions, but mostly I did not make any decisions at all.  <br /><br />I have started this book many times over. I never knew where to begin, even though the most basic advice given to any writer is “begin at the beginning.” When you are talking about the death of your parents, though, where is the beginning? When you were born? When you first remember them in your childhood? When you realized they were mortal, or dying, or already dead?<br /><br />Where is the beginning of the end to your whole life?

Lawrence Kamwi got his first job as a reporter at the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC). He worked as a journalist for six years, before joining government's information service. In government, he worked as a principal press secretary, director of public affairs and principal private secretary to the President. Having grown up in an insulated and fairly small family, his first direct confrontation with death was in 2003 when he lost his mother-in-law. In 2004, he lost his mother. As he tried to come to terms with the successive losses, his father succumbed to a stroke in February 2006. Seven months later, in September 2006, he lost his wife to pulmonary embolism, This book is an abridged version of DREAMS AND BROKEN WINGS, in which he tells of the difficulties of trying to balance single parenthood, a sensitive government job and taking care of his own health. His biggest regret is the absence of support structures which would have enabled him to understand and treat bereavement in a different way.
