Suicide is a Permanent Solution to a Temporary Problem

. at . 3 comments

Feelings, like weather in some places (think Colorado Springs), are changeable. Wait 60 minutes or so and you’llbook on suicide have a new view in the kaleidoscope of feelings.There are things we can do to change those feelings – even those deep depressive, hopeless feelings of suicide.

How I Stayed Alive When My Brain Was Trying to Kill Me: One Person’s Guide to Suicide Prevention by Susan Rose Blauner is a book that offers concrete choices for the person with suicidal thoughts. Blauner’s message is that this “feeling” is treatable, although for many it will require hard, consistent work and a good support team.

It also has a section for family and friends of such a hurting person. The author’s intent is to provide “ideas and suggestions…[as you] embrace the suicidal thinker and help that person back to life” (263).

I am still reading this useful book. When finished I’ll write a more comprehensive review (end of June after Retreat and school finals). I felt compelled to write this blurb because of the dream I woke up with this morning. If you or someone you know is struggling with suicidal thoughts, please get help today.

Edited to add: The author, Susan Blauner, left a message in the comment section. One thing she wants everyone to know is that she is available to answer questions at

    I’m glad you posted this, because as you know, we recently experienced this in our family. I hope God uses this to share His love with someone who is in that deep and dark pit right now.
