I lost my oldest son, Tim, age 18 at the time, to suicide 4 years ago. I live in Southern Monmouth County in NJ where we have suffered a contagion of teen/young adult suicides, which unfortunately, started with Tim. I am grateful that my family consisting of myself, my husband and my two younger sons, currently ages 21 and 18, are doing well. I am active in my community and I'm almost done writing a book.
My book - "Without Tim: A Son's Fall to Suicide, A Mom's Rise from Grief" contains two parallel stories. First the story of my recovery and second, the story of Tim-not a biography but glimpses into Tim's life that allow the reader to get to know him. Please visit my website, www.withouttim.com if you'd like to get to know more about us, the book, and inspirational and helpful resources. I look forward to getting to know more of you here.
I am not a big "group" person. I tend to seek help and give help more in one-on-one settings. Thanks for reading this post, please reach out- I'd like to help and will ask for help as well. Sincerely, Lisa
