9781420857153: The Rolley Coaster Ride: Surviving Suicide - A True Story

Book is 404 pages and contains 25 actual photos. *** My husband Michael killed himself. This is the true story of my life with, and without him. He was my husband of five years, whom I loved very much. One day he decided to take his own life. I lost him to his love affair with drugs. I could not compete. What do you do when someone you love is consumed, and ultimately destroyed, right before your eyes? In your arms? And you are powerless to stop it? What do you do? Ride with me on this adventure, which was deeply tragic, yes, but often humorous, somewhat magical, and hopefully, inspirational. Experience the joys and love, denial and despair, betrayal and heartbreak, and ultimately, the decision to rise above my pain, and to soar. You see, I discovered something along the way. That what I do with my life, if I realize it or not, is my choice. I had to choose if I was going to die myself, just survive, or truly live. I was so blessed to have known him at all, to be loved by him. He showed me the value of life. I choose to not throw such a beautiful gift out the window, just because he had to leave. I choose to LIVE. I choose to honor the sweet soul of my husband. I choose to honor the Spirit of God within me, and TRULY LIVE. This is my story. It could be yours, too. "As a widow who lost the Love of her Life, as a mother of a son who has done drugs, this story is: HEART WRENCHING, SOUL SEARCHING, INSPIRATIONAL - A CANNOT-PUT-DOWN BOOK. Thank you, Carolyn Elise, my friend, for telling your story. I love you!" - Diane Kotula "AN INCREDIBLE STORY OF LOVE, LOSS, AND COURAGE TO MOVE FORWARD. ONE WOMAN'S JOURNEY INTO AN ENLIGHTENED LIFE." - Suzanne Sowa

About the Author:

This is Carolyn Elise's first book. It is her true story, of the life she shared with her husband, Michael, and of the journey she entered into after he decided to take his own life and greatly alter hers. In a meditation one evening, she heard a Voice say, "Write the Book", and she simply said, "OK". This is it. She studied at the School of Hard Knocks for over twenty years, majoring in drugs, alcohol, and destructive relationships, with a specialty in various kinds of abuse. She minored in lifestyles generally frowned upon by society, and graduated on Feb 13th, 1991. For the last fourteen plus years, she has been an honor student at the School of an Awakened Life, changing her major to studies of a spiritual nature, and teaching others in her spare time. She continues on her path of learning and growing, and is presently enrolled, and excelling in, a course on Creating an Abundant Life. Carolyn now lives happily, peacefully, and for the most part, spiritually centered, with her three cats in Southern California, and has been enjoying a gentle and loving relationship with a successful musician for three and a half years. She is currently working on a humorous adventure series of spiritual fiction books.
