EMBRACING LIFE AFTER LOSS:
A Gentle Guide for Growing Through Grief
When my wife died at the age of 34, I was devastated. I sought a therapist who told me that life was tough. I already knew that; I fired him. I read grief books to ease my loss. The authors told me about all the bad things I might experience—lack of appetite, loss of sleep, feeling depressed. I stopped reading.
What I needed was a book that inspired me, that lifted me up, that comforted me and was easy to read. Not finding that, I wrote my own. That book, Learning to Laugh When You Feel Like Crying, is now available here:
"Allen's book resonated deeply in me. Not only did it help on an emotional level, but there were many practical, real life, suggestions. It's the kind of book that you can pick up and read one page, or many, and find healing benefits. A good book to keep on a coffee table or nightstand for many years after the grief journey begins…. Thanks Allen for contributing to the healing of many."
