Judy Brizendineabout this book: The title 'STUNNED by Grief' expresses more accurately the way I felt when grief invaded my life than any other words I could see. I thought people would be able to instantly identify with the words in this title.
What is this book about? If you've suffered a profound loss, this book is about you. If you're facing grief and wondering what it's all about, how you're going to get through it, IF you can get through it--STUNNED by Grief is about you. If you're confused, overwhelmed, and think you may be going crazy--this book is about you. If you think no one understands, and your world's been turned upside down, this book is about you. If you feel alone and isolated, this book is about you. If you're struggling to understand why and how your relationships have changed, this book is about you.
STUNNED by Grief is not filled with medical jargon or clinical details, but is a straightforward, no-nonsense, simple, and personal look at grief. It's an honest look at what to expect. I wrote about some of the things I wish I had known when I was going through the grieving process. Grievers will also relate to the personal stories--and they'll see that they have reasons to be hopeful.
I wrote everything from a personal perspective--and we look at critical issues together--such as fears, relationship issues, unexpected changes, isolation, anger, and other factors that can be stumbling blocks to healing.
Letter after letter I've received from all kinds of people with different types of losses have said that this book is the first one to truly touch the reality of their feelings; that I was able to put into words exactly what they're going through; that for the first time, they felt like someone 'got it'; and they wondered if I was sitting on their shoulder when I was writing.
STUNNED by Grief is a personal book--and grievers will see themselves throughout.
My goal is to let people know they are not alone, that they have real reasons to hope, and that they can get through this grief and live a life that is satisfying once again.
